    Havent seen something like this in long time. China is not our friend and we need to act accordingly. While we have been playing wack a mole China has been busy on the stage we have been absent on. State Dept needs refocusing.
    The Coronavirus Outbreak Could Derail Xi Jinping’s Dreams of a Chinese Century
    Xi does not stand alone, though he is surrounded by clients rather than friends. China is now more closely aligned with Russia than at any period since Mao and Nikita Khrushchev fell out in 1956. The Belt and Road Initiative is drawing nations across Asia, Africa, Europe and the Middle East into Beijing’s orbit (and often into its debt). The U.S. may have asked 61 countries to shun Huawei, but only three–Japan, Australia, New Zealand–have acquiesced. The next decade won’t be defined by an iron curtain but two blocs vying for influence within every nation that isn’t firmly in the liberal democratic or autocratic camp.

    But imagine if the supply of antibiotics to the United States was suddenly cut off.


    American national security officials are worrying about that scenario as they come to grips with this little understood fact: The vast majority of key ingredients for drugs that many Americans rely on are manufactured abroad, mostly in China.

    Some very scary alliances are being solidified right under our nose with China as the ring master....China is building militarily above and beyond what is necessary for self defense....this is why Trump has gone after them economically through trade contacts...to slow their roll...

    Globalists have us so tied to China I dont think we could fight a protracted conflict at this point. This increases the chance of nukes being used.
