The Chinese are building a base in Pakistan (which China denies the reports) ergo, that seems to be the reason that Trump is beefing up our presence in Afghanistan. So there has to be some fire to the smoke that is rising for Trump increasing our presence. The Indians are hardening their border with China, digging in and prepping for war.
Trump has taken North Korea out of China’s pocket with his allure towards relations with North Korea/de-escalation of North Korean nukes.
What is happening in China? Why did Xi have to declare his rule for life, when the CCP is a one party unit, unless he is having problem within the CCP and the Chinese business arena who are upset that Xi isn’t doing enough to protect China in a trade war with Trump. Trump has all the cards, China will loose in a trade war, they don’t have enough gravitas even with their holding of U.S. T bills.
Why has Putin signed a treaty alliance with Syria and Iran, if not to protect Russia against China entering the Mideast?
My inquiring mind wants to know.
