Re: China botches relations with the EU: USA moves in.

The Trump Administration's effective handling of US/European affairs continues to pay dividends. NATO countries are beginning to contribute more towards defense. US ground troops are being removed from Europe (though at a slower pace under Biden). The Europeans are seeing the value of the "America ...

Re: China: it seems that New Zealand's is trying to have it both ways.

But a long time ago I even thought about emigrating to Australia... :D What stopped you from doing so, Sertorio? Mostly family reasons . Had I done it I'm sure I would have been happy in Australia, but I certainly would not vote for the present government... :D I suspected it might have been someth...

Re: If China ruled the world.

In response to Sertorio, Please don't mention the hackneyed phrase "the Syrian people". Everyone knows quite well there is NO Syrian people. There are several subnational groups in Syria. By far the largest (65% of the population, even after 6 million of its members were driven out of the country) ...

Re: If China ruled the world.

I am 90% in agreement. But not in respect of what you say about Syria. Syria is strictly a matter to be decided by the Syrians themselves. If Syria wants to associate with Russia and Iran , that's their business. Is Syria wants to associate with Russia and Iran then it is Israel's business too. The...

Re: If China ruled the world.

Your post is off topic Ellen.

You expended a lot of keystrokes railing against someone in US politics named John Kerry (whom I know not) and about border changes and border changes that appear to have nothing to do with PRC global power. Could you please explain?

Re: If China ruled the world.

China may not have territorial ambitions beyond its historical borders but it does seem keen to export its autocratic model. "As an American, I naturally prefer my country’s values. I am not anti-Chinese. I have tremendous respect for what China has accomplished. Having lived in Hong Kong for nine ...

Re: China: it seems that New Zealand's is trying to have it both ways.

You are naturally not psychologically prepared to accept what I said. Which, by the way, is the plain truth. :lol: Are you "physcologically prepared" to admit that you do not know what you are talking about,Sertorio? :) That might be the most bigoted thing I’ve ever seen posted. Which one?
