Why is China hostile to the US when the US saved China from Japan’s brutal beatdown in WWII? Do they not understand they would be part of Japan had the US not intervened?
China is hostile to USA because USA has been hostile to China for the past decade.
- USA has been demonizing China will all kinds of lies and false accusations such as genocide, forced labour, concentration camps, etc.
- USA has been stoking Taiwan to become a proxy in a proxy war with China, just as it did to Ukraine and Russia.
- USA has been blocking Chinese commerce (e.g., 5G, semiconductors, etc.).
It didn’t have to be this way. China was perfectly happy to continue their cordial relationship since 1971.
But when USA saw that China was about to surpass USA as the dominant world power, it became envious and jealous and fearful and paranoid and even downright hateful.
China is only responding in kind.
SHYLOCK from The Merchant of Venice: To bait fish withal. If it will feed nothing else, it will feed my revenge. He hath disgraced me, and hindered me half a million, laughed at my losses, mocked at my gains, scorned my nation, thwarted my bargains, cooled my friends, heated mine enemies, and what’s the reason? I am a Jew. Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs, dimensions, senses, affections, passions? Fed with the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject to the same diseases, healed by the same means, warmed and cooled by the same winter and summer, as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge? If we are like you in the rest, we will resemble you in that. If a Jew wrong a Christian, what is his humility? Revenge. If a Christian wrong a Jew, what should his sufferance be by Christian example? Why, revenge. The villainy you teach me I will execute, and it shall go hard but I will better the instruction.
