Sinopec and Venture Global LNG signed a 20-year long-term purchase and sale agreement of 4 million tons per year of liquefied natural gas (LNG) on Thursday. This is the largest long-term LNG contract signed by China and the US so far.

China's Attempts To Prevent US-India Ties From Deepening, Unsuccessful: Pentagon

The United States Pentagon said that China has unsuccessfully sought to prevent US-India ties from deepening and that it is "taking incremental and tactical actions" to press its claims at the Line of Actual Control (LAC).



I would say even the FoN exercise conducted by US ship in Indian territorial waters was a plan of china ..much chinese stooges in American forces!

well! like Australia..who knows how corrupted the US navy is!

From Nov. 27 to Dec. 13, 1950, about 30,000 U.S. and allied troops withstood the sledgehammer of 12 Chinese Divisions and then conducted a fighting retreat to Hungnam, where they were evacuated to South Korea. The escape to Hungnam was so perilous that when a reporter asked Smith about ordering a retreat the general responded: “Retreat, hell! We’re not retreating; we’re advancing in a different direction.”
The parents of current South Korean President Moon Jae-in
were among the refugees evacuated from Hungnam in 1950.
China’s biggest movie is about how a US Marine division held off 12 Chinese divisions

Japan didn’t magically fail.

The US has occupied Japan continuously since WW2. And wrote its constitution. So, it had root control in a way it never did over China.

I’d long suspected this was used to punch Japan under the table somehow. Then I found a book on the topic…

Cold War end will be when US-China also disengage economically. Right now US is so much dependent on China for consumer goods (one single source) and some supply chain products that no disengagement is possible. That is why that propaganda from both sides makes it look like Cold War. Behind the scene it is pally-pally. Otherwise why would US and Chinese presidents hold one to one discussions. This was not a one hour chit chat. It was two hours serious discussion. What transpired during the discussions,….. nobody knows. But as immediately the Chinese Threat of Taiwan takeover has died down. Biden has also called off his private covert as well otherwise investigation of Covid virus Origin. Everybody knows it came from Wuhan Lab but Biden let Chinese off the hook. In return, the Chinese called off their postured invasion of Taiwan.

What an arrangement……

The US has no ideological enemies; only industrial and political competition. And China has the Americans by their economic balls. Make no mistake, USA will not even touch the Chinese the day they land in Taiwan. Think about it; how many American movies in the last 3 decades, fictional or real-life have shown the Chinese as the enemy, as compared to Russians, Muslims, Serbs, etc.?

While movies are considered an exaggeration in the rest of the world, a lot of what goes into Hollywood reflects the mindset that the US deep-state itself has - a cautious one when it comes to China.

I hate to say this but US is not in good position to win this one. It is sad that the strength of US that is corporation are being used to chip away all advantage.

Only thing that can save US from losing is CCP itself in form of bad economics like evergrande. Otherwise its just waiting game for 1-2 decades and CCP will defacto conrtrol US via its leverage on corporates and compromised politicians.

Question is if yankees have fight in them, current resistance is only from non-organised retail investors who raise red flags on investing highlighting botched up CCP companies, but they also don't object to low cost manufacturing in Chin.

They are on IMF dole.. The US could wreck their economy in a day. But, they have got more Spine than India..

But our Modi is going to the Circus, only to be lectured by ice cream licking Biden, on how to run a Democracy..
Man, for a beggar nation, Pakistan has always displayed huge risk appetite

Might as well analyse a situation on it's own merits, No need to bring India into this.
it could be as simple as fear of a coup, if he leaves the country.

The real cold/hot war will start only when US China economic disengagement is complete.. China has time until then, to overmatch US Japan alliance in South and East China Sea.. Once US China are decoupled, US will start piling on real pressure.. Now, because of their crippling supply chain dependence on China, US can't do much even if it wants to..

It's mostly due to snub by Biden to Immu, plus the China factor. If they attend beijjati plus China te chhittar, if they don't they'll beg in new ways
