Well, Biden seems to be single-handedly taking on the military protection of Taiwan, which has caused a major Chinese diplomatic flutter, and of course the EU has de facto ceased taking the most expensive commodity, fuel, from Russia.As I asked above....
At the same time documentation confirming what we all knew about the brutal treatment of Muslim Uyghur in China. 1 million in concentration camps, sorry rehabilitation centres.
Why are the Western powers not sanctioning them? Take a wee look at where your iPhone or any other products are produced. Hypocracy.
We just heard on the news that both warmongering, defenders of freedom and democracy, Liz Truss and Joe Biden have both respectivel proclaimed disgust and shock at the revelations, which of course are not revelations.
Will the US, UK or EU sanction China. Zero chance, after all is said and done, Business is business.
So both ends of NATO have dared to worsen their trade relations with major non-NATO players.
Me, I would be much happier to see an end of populist and conservative rightwing politics in Europe for now, with a bit more unity on the left (Dutch Labour party, f.e., looking at joining up with Green Left party in Holland - and something similar in France too I think I saw recently).
Then the shibboleth of conservative politics consolidating wealth unequally amongst their top % club will have to be tackled.
And that's not even mentioning the environment or health; we have to find a way of looking after our numbers on this one planet for now. Let's hope it is one day given to us to develop peacefully on other planets too... but problems there are ahead, some for another day.
