nawalpur : US President Donald Trump touches China in every one of his speeches. Trump has accused China of plotting to become the world’s sole “economic king”. In a recent speech, however, he said, “China is conspiring to defeat me in the election.” This is the year of the US presidential election. Opposition Democrats have decided to field Joe Widen as Barack Obama’s running mate.
Does Trump deliberately fire on China again and again, or is it just a cheap political ploy to suit his voter psychology? Everyone has dilemmas on this question. It is difficult to say that the president of a powerful nation like the United States has no information and no analysis. America’s state apparatus may not be full of idiots and incompetents.
On the other hand, what role could China play in the US election? No matter how powerful it is economically, China is politically alone. Unlike yesterday’s Soviet Union, China has no military alliance. Neither are the allied political countries. North Korea is the only country in the contemporary world that has political / ideological similarities with China. China does not have good relations with communist countries like Vietnam or Laos.
How can China conspire with the United States? However, various surveys show that the fear of China continues to grow in the minds of Americans. Even Americans believe the corona virus could be a link in a Chinese conspiracy. The more the Corona destroys the United States, the more the Americans become angry with China.
Statistics so far show that Corona’s damage is 20 times greater in the United States than in China. The number of infected people in the United States has reached 1.8 million, while China has managed to control the situation before the number reached 83,000. The death toll in the United States has risen to 120,000, compared to 4,600 in China. How did this happen?
Americans see this in two ways: there are enough who think Trump is careless. Second, of course, China has a secret conspiracy. Otherwise, how did he stop? The number of Americans who suspect that China is withholding factual information about the Corona is growing by the day.
From a first-point perspective, the main reasons are that the United States did not stop international flights on time, did not delay landings, and did not inform the public about precautions in a timely manner. About 400,000 people migrated to China and the United States after the Corona originated in Wuhan. The United States has not been able to assess the situation in a timely manner.
President Trump called Corona a “Chinese virus.” The US media put a mask on Mao Tse Tung’s photo. They started calling China a ‘disease of Asia’. When the US itself started abusing and insulting China, why should only China give correct information?
From another point of view, China is the second largest economy. His political system is strong, even if it is not approved by the world. With economic and military might, China must be plotting something or other. China’s goal is to become the world’s first superpower in the 2030s. Isn’t China using Corona to achieve this goal?
This was exactly the situation after World War II. The United States and the Soviet Union were two great powers. There were daily squabbles between the two countries. It sounded like a war between the United States and China at any moment. But it didn’t happen. The United States and the Soviet Union never went to war. Indirect involvement in Korea, Vietnam and Afghanistan is a different matter. The 50-year-old tension between the United States and the Soviet Union was called the Cold War. With the collapse of communism in 1990, the Soviet Union disintegrated. The Cold War is over. Today marks the beginning of a new Cold War between the United States and China.
Even in this “new Cold War,” the United States and China are unlikely to actually face each other in the war. But today, analysts are debating from a new angle. If the Corona crisis caused smuch damage, wouldn’t the US be forced to attack China? Should he abandon the ambitions of the world powers or be ready to go to war with China?
Otherwise, the US does not have the facility to remain the number one power in the status quo. This argument is largely valid. If the Corona crisis continues for about two years now, the United States will not be the first power economically. Chinese President Xi Jinping has told his troops to “be ready for war at any time”.
What would the rest of the world do if there was a real war between the US and China? Which countries? How can the world be polarized? In the West, such analysis has also begun to take place in the media world. The United States still has a NATO alliance. There are now 30 countries in this military alliance. But China does not have the ‘Barसाa’ of yesterday’s Soviet Union. Before 1990, the communist countries had separate military alliances led by the Soviet Union, but China did not join them.
Some of the countries that were in the Bar check Pact yesterday, Albania, Bulgaria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, etc., are in NATO today. Probably, if there is a war, Britain, France, New Zealand, South Korea, Australia, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, etc. will automatically be on the American axis. Which country is towards China? Leaving North Korea is hard to believe. But for the most part, Russia, Pakistan and Iran could side with China.
What is the role of some other big countries? Such as India, Japan, Brazil, Argentina, South Africa etc. Perhaps these countries will assess the situation for some time? In the end, it is more likely to be on the American axis.
But is there a clear reason for the US-China war now? Analysts say there could be three reasons. One: The Corona Crisis and its Compensation. Two – the question of trade balance and three – the strategic situation of Hong Kong and Taiwan. These 3 reasons are to blame. Is the US and China really at war with each other? If you don’t want war, these accusations are not irreversible. Wanting war is no less complicated.
The United States and its allies say China should take responsibility for the Korana damage. A British organization has compiled a confidential report analyzing Corona’s damage. At a meeting of the World Health Organization, US ally Australia proposed that China pay global compensation for corana. China has ruled out the possibility. China claims the opposite: the Corona did not originate in China. It was spread by the US military who came to Wuhan to participate in a military sports competition.
The question of China’s trade balance with the United States, the EU and other NATO countries is even more complex. But China is well aware of this fact. As trade imbalances continue to grow, those countries are at risk of becoming frustrated and China losing the potential for world trade. Without export rights to those countries, China cannot keep its economy afloat. Therefore, trade imbalances are a matter of concern not only for the United States but also for China. Today’s economic development of China would not have been possible without being a communist country and an economic partner of capitalist globalization.
Last question: Strategic situation of Taiwan and Hong Kong. In the next few decades, China will not allow the two to become separate political entities. Both Hong Kong and Taiwan are dissatisfied with China’s intention to integrate Taiwan and Hong Kong into the mainstream political and administrative system. There seems to be an understanding that the US will take some steps at the crucial moment.
However, the discussion of the US-China war is currently the biggest “hypothesis” of contemporary world politics. If there is a real war, the world map may change.
