As Seeming Consensus Hardens for Cold – or Even Hot – War Against China: It Becomes Ever More Important to Fight for Peace

What a difference a presidential campaign and deadly pandemic make. Although the U.S. and People’s Republic of China long had been at odds over important issues, the bilateral relationship remained civil if not always friendly. Despite occasional spats, no one imagined a cold war, let alone actual hostilities. But 2020 changed everything. Today the possibility of conflict is on many Americans’ minds.

Scaremongering is pushing Washington toward conflict with Beijing. Observed Luo: "In recent decades, the defense industry has perfected this rhetoric to make the case for war on China. Republicans and Democrats – including both President Biden and even our most progressive members of Congress – amplify the warmongering and push for increased defense spending."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

US infrastructure is rotting in place; homeless Vets sleep rough in our streets, and the only way the DC "foggy-bottomites" can think to fix it is.... more war?!?

After the debacles which have been Iraq and Afghanistan?!?

You have GOT to be flipping kidding me!!!

We don't have the weaponry; we don't have the troop strength; we don't have the manufacturing or the money to engage in any more major wars, thank you very much.

This country is broke, and broken, post-Covid, and post the wars that have failed, utterly and miserably, by any possible metric, to have achieved their alledged objectives.

Yet the antidote fo this collective and collossal failure of imagination.... is more wars?!?

Does anyone in DC recognise just how unalterably stupid that sounds, in the face of both the US's (and China's) economic challenges?!?
