Wall Street Journal, National Review Feed British Empire Campaign To Decouple U.S. and Chinese Economies
Dec. 29, 2020 (EIRNS)—The Wall Street Journal and the National Review both offered their services to the City of London and New York banking oligarchy, helping to impose the British-designed “decoupling” of the U.S. and Chinese economies. The decoupling is considered essential to the oligarchy in order to stop China’s rise, and maintain their “looting rights” around the world, which are threatened by the real development being offered by China’s Belt and Road Initiative.
The National Review article, titled “The Coming Global Backlash Against China,” states, “Xi Jinping’s policies of repression at home and aggression abroad have backfired, calling into question China’s supposedly inevitable dominance on the world stage.”
The Journal headline is: “Pushback on Xi’s Vision for China Spreads Beyond U.S.—Countries That Once Avoided Upsetting Beijing Are Moving Closer to Washington’s Harder Stance.” The Journal admits that Xi enjoys tremendous support within China, but claims that this is because the Chinese people support Xi’s supposed effort to take over the world. “Inside China,” they write, “Mr. Xi’s authority is increasingly seen as absolute. He has sidelined rivals, silenced dissidents and bolstered his popularity by promoting a resurgent China unafraid to assert its interests.”
However, the article asserts:
“The biggest challenge to his vision for China comes not from within its borders but from other parts of the world, in nations whose views of Beijing have dramatically changed in just a few years. Countries that once avoided upsetting Beijing are moving closer to Washington’s harder and largely bipartisan stance—to curb Chinese access to customers, technology and sensitive infrastructure.”
The authors then run 12 small graphs of 12 countries, labeled: “Percentage Who Have No Confidence in Chinese President Xi Jinping To Do the Right Thing Regarding World Affairs.”
Ha! “The right thing,” indeed. Of the 12 countries with graphs, notably none are developing countries. Even in Europe, the authors attack German Chancellor Angela Merkel for continuing to push for an investment agreement between China for the EU.
