I have received several responses from my readers to my latest two columns about China's efforts to make its power global. Below is one of those responses:
Do you honestly believe that China could defeat NATO, Australia,
Japan, Vietnam, South Korea, to name a few, in an armed conflict?
China would have to face off against all of the aforementioned
countries in their quest for world domination. The US would come
to Russia’s aid and if China were to invade the Russian homefront,
assuming that Russia would not be able to defend itself.
In the first of my two previous column, I wrote about the need for the relevant countries to draw another NATO for the defense against China. But in the 60 years of existence of the People's Republic of China, this has never happened, at least in the public domain.
Let us now look at the other countries named as too powerful for China to cope with. The United States is mentioned twice: for the first time as part of NATO, and for the second time as capable of defeating China and thus saving Russia from China’s attack.
It is true that the United States did produce nuclear weapons so that it may be concluded that militarily it was for that snippet of time the most powerful country.
How did that come about? The German scientist of genius Albert Einstein was a Jew and hence was running the risk of being killed by the Nazi regime. When he and his family were safely away from Germany, Einstein sent a letter (on Aug. 2, 1939) to President Roosevelt (two pages of that letter I have displayed on the wall in my study). Roosevelt acted upon it immediately.
So “the American military superiority” comes down to the USA plus a runaway German scientist.
Germany had no nuclear weapons when Hitler invaded Russia. Later, after he had sustained defeat in Russia, he committed suicide.
If that runaway scientist had not been in the picture, the nuclear weapons would have been Hitler’s property, and hence the world would have been his.
Let us suppose that Obama will not be re-elected for the next presidential term. Those, however, who voted for his first term are still alive to vote. Hypothetically, in slave societies like the People’s Republic of China, voters who had voted for the “wrong candidate” would have been killed as so many flies.
In the United States, the president has been elected despite — or perhaps due to — the sympathy he expressed for the People’s Republic of China!
When I went out the other day, I saw a line of trucks by my entrance, carrying window guards, to prevent a possible accident, to be installed in our 22-story building.
Watching the unloading of the trucks was an American young man, who told me that the window guards had been manufactured in the People’s Republic of China. He seemed to expect to hear from me a scream of delight, as though he had told me that those window guards were personally sculpted by Leonardo da Vinci, a citizen of the People’s Republic of China.
Young people are so different and so opinionated that they consider themselves a totally different nation of youth, superior to the rest of Americans and now led by the youthful U.S. President Obama.
So not only does the population of the People’s Republic of China exceed that of the United States by 1 billion, but the 300 million American citizens include any number of those who had voted for the youthful China-loving Obama.
No less invented is the next assertion of my reader: “The US [!] would come to Russia’s aid if China were to invade the Russian homefront, assuming that Russia would not be able to defend itself.”
Today it is again believed that the world is being rejuvenated: that the People’s Republic of China is a country of new development, of youth, of the future, and hence American youths gravitate to China (or Islamism!) like youths had once gravitated to Stalin’s Russia or Hitler’s Germany or Mao’s China.
