    No nation is a friend or enemy to yourself or anyone of us.

    Have you been watching or listening to the news lately?

    Not that you can take everything that is said as being true of course.

    they are working into cold war.
    The US just closed an Chinese emissary in Houston, and China returned the
    gesture by closing one of America's emissaries in China. tit for tat.

    One thing which I find very amusing is that the majority of the pro-Trump and MAGA merchandise is made in China.

    Is it true that China fired some test missiles in the Indonesian Sea, and thus the US, Japan and Australia are showing their presence nearby...
    All part of the Cold War?

    For some reason I don't believe China is concerned about the US, Japan or Australia all showing their presence nearby. I believe they have become the new world power. Many are starting to see it!

    It is the case that every nation plays a geopolitical role, and some of these role are opposed to our interests.

    Carl Schmitt wrote extensively about how political enemies should never be treated as personal enemies, and how many classical languages even had words distinguishing the two (like Greek).

    It is not just appropriate but necessary to stand in opposition to unjust nations that pose a threat to your own nation or to others, like the poor Uighurs.

    You tell me who considers the U.S. a world power anymore, or the other two countries mentioned for that matter?

    Everyone considers China a world power. Why do you think the Trumpster was trying to get buddies with their leader?

    According to the 2020 rankings of powerful nations, China remains behind the USA and Russia.

    Do you live in the year 2050?
