Selected Articles: The Anti-China Rhetoric

COVID-19 and the Reification of the US-China “Cold War”

By Dr. Giulio Pugliese, August 03, 2020

The implications of the pandemic for US-China relations are relevant for global peace and prosperity, well beyond the Asia-Pacific. Rather than joining forces against the pandemic, COVID-19 is among the factors that have widened the rift between the United States and China, bringing bilateral relations to their lowest level since Nixon and Kissinger’s overtures in 1971. In fact, US-China zero-sum interactions across the geopolitical, economic, technological and political domains have spiralled towards a dangerous race to the bottom. While it is too early to declare a US-China “Cold War”, China’s assertiveness and the US maximalist pushback are working in lockstep to reify the Cold War trope past the 2020 US presidential elections.

Another Hiroshima Is Coming — Unless We Stop It Now

By John Pilger, August 03, 2020

The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was an act of premeditated mass murder that unleashed a weapon of intrinsic criminality. It was justified by lies that form the bedrock of America’s war propaganda in the 21st century, casting a new enemy, and target – China.

During the 75 years since Hiroshima, the most enduring lie is that the atomic bomb was dropped to end the war in the Pacific and to save lives.

Escalating Trump Regime Cold War on China

By Stephen Lendman, August 03, 2020

Focusing heavily on China bashing, the nonexistent “yellow peril” was reinvented, scapegoating Beijing, demonizing its ruling authorities, escalating US war on the country by other means.

Loose cannon Pompeo has been waging a steady war of words on China, pushing the envelope toward rupturing relations or something worse — possible direct confrontation.

What We Are Told and Not Told About the South China Sea

By James ONeill, August 03, 2020

If war breaks out between China and the United States, there is a high probability that the precipitating factor will be the South China Sea. The United States is currently running another of its so-called “freedom of navigation” exercises in the region, employing no less than two aircraft carriers, together with their supporting armada of warships. The western media regularly report these naval exercises but rarely if ever is the historical situation put into any kind of context.

China Calls to Confront US Bullying and Uphold Multilateralism

By Telesur, July 31, 2020

China seeks the support of the European Union (EU) countries to counter the hegemonic behavior of the United States, which could generate a new cold war, an interruption of globalization, and situations of risk for all humanity.

The U.S. is “violating the most basic principles of international relations,” Chinese Foreign Affairs Minister Wang Yi said during a phone call with his French colleague Jean Yves Le Drian.

Revisions on China: Abandoning the Nixon Legacy, Pompeo the Puffed-up Hawk

By Dr. Binoy Kampmark, July 26, 2020

The largest authoritarian target for the Trump administration remains China.  China is convenient; China is destiny.  The US imperium has always needed, on some level, handy demons to justify vast military budgets and its sprawling network of military bases.  Lacking enemies would naturally lessen the case and show up the jingoes as men and women of straw.  When the Soviet Union vanished, ending the most expensive, phoniest confrontation in modern history, the rogues’ gallery suddenly seemed empty, largely because many of those rogues were sponsored or backed by the US imperium.  This was a time ludicrously called the “end of history” by that most fatuous of political observers, Francis Fukuyama.  But candidates of wickedness were eventually found: President George W. Bush’s “axis of evil”, born in the embers of New York’s World Trade Centre; the shop-for-terror al-Qaeda network; a miscellany of terrorists.

Washington’s Anti-Chinese “Pan-Asian Alliance”

By Tony Cartalucci, July 22, 2020

One of Washington’s reoccuring dreams is creating a “pan-Asian alliance” to encircle and contain China’s economic and political rise. Unable to do this through regime change, economic incentives, military alliances, or even coercion and terrorism, it has drawn deeper and deeper from its “soft power” toolkit.

The US is also increasingly lumping its various regional assets together to fight in its growing rift with China.
