It is getting ugly, extremely ugly.
It is increasingly looking like a war â at least a new âcoldâ, ideological war.
But in the shadow of COVID-19, it goes almost unnoticed.
The blind horseman, who hates China intuitively, without knowing hardly anything about it, is leading the pack, pushing his president into a confrontation with the most populous country on Earth. His name is Peter Navarro.
Not that the president is âinnocentâ. Under him, the White House has become a haven of bigotry, of anti-Chinese racist sentiments. Here, not only China, but also Iran, Venezuela, Cuba and Russia are hated. It was already converted into the global headquarters of the combat against the much more logical and humane, socialist, systems.
Red warning lights are blinking. All indicators are pointing downwards; economic ones, social ones, as well as medical. More disastrous is domestic policy of the Empire, more aggressively it behaves towards the world. U.S. warships are repeatedly being deployed, near Taiwan and the South China Sea. They are right near the territorial waters of Iran and Venezuela.
And the insults, terrible insults, are flying.
Trump and Navarro are abusing China publicly, with no shame. There is no diplomacy, and no restrains. Nation which just a few months ago stood alone, facing an unknown enemy, battling and at great cost but rapidly defeated the pandemic, all over its vast territory, is now smeared day after day.
All this is being done shamelessly and arrogantly.
The world is watching. Part of it in disbelief and outrage, and the other part lethargically and submissively, as always.
On April 19, 2020, the New York Post reported:
âWhite House trade adviser Peter Navarro on Sunday called on China to prove that a Wuhan laboratory played no role in the coronavirus pandemic â and accused the nation of hoarding personal protective equipment and profiting off the outbreak.
Navarro took aim at China on Fox Newsâ âSunday Morning Futures,â accusing the country of taking several actions that worsened the ongoing crisis and âled to the deaths of many people worldwide.â
âFirst of all, the virus was spawned in China. Second of all, they hid the virus behind the shield of the World Health Organization.
