What If?

The bully that is the United States of America wants China suppressed at any cost because the latter is its fierce competitor and challenger on the global stage. 

It wants the latter to kowtow to it and therefore, make China accept US hegemony. And that’s because the US is envious and resentful of China's successes. It is already losing its competitive edge and it knows it cannot challenge nor rival China.

And so, the tyrant makes every attempt to find fault with China on every conceivable issue – you name it, whether it is Covid-19, Huawei, Hong Kong, Xinjiang, Tibet, South China Sea, the Belt & Road initiative.  All are China's domestic concerns  and it is none of America's business to interfere, full-stop.

Therefore, the battery of anti-China rhetoric and the flurry of laws that it has passed against China are intended to subdue the country. These provocations smack of colonial imperialism.  












BUT WHAT IF China turns the table on the US? What if the US is on the receiving end? What if? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US because of the government’s incompetency to manage the coronavirus pandemic and which has caused the deaths of more than 142,000 Americans? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for failing to provide protection gear and lifesaving equipment to its frontline health workers? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for unleashing its militarized police against peaceful protesters? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for rampant police brutality against its Black population? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for starting trade wars which have the detrimental effect of destroying the livelihoods of American farmers? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for having a president who’s always on about “Trump first”, his businesses first, his excuses first, his wretched egotism first? 

What if China signs a law to punish the US for electing a dumbass for a president? 

Surely, the Americans must know that their president is failing and Americans are paying for his failures! 

What if China is compelled to intervene on behalf of American citizens because their own President doesn’t give a shit about them? What if?
