A 'new Cold War?' China blames U.S. for growing tensions

Source: NBC News

By YULIYA TALMAZAN AND ERIC BACULINAO AND ED FLANAGAN

The United States is pushing China to the brink of a "new Cold War," China's foreign minister said as officials in the world's two largest economies continue trading barbs over each other’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic.

"This dangerous attempt to turn back the wheel of history will undo the fruits of decadeslong China-U.S. cooperation, dampen American's own development prospects, and put world stability and prosperity in jeopardy,” Foreign Minister Wang Yi said Sunday in a video news conference on the sidelines of the annual session of China's National People's Congress.

Wang blamed the worsening tensions on "some political forces in the U.S." that were "taking China-U.S. relations hostage."

He did not say what "political forces" he was referring to, but while Beijing in general seeks to safeguard the personal relationship between President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping by not criticizing the U.S. leader, senior White House figures such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo have been singled out for criticism.

1. China isn't exactly the innocent young virgin in this as they have been

just as reckless and aggressive.

3. While China builds islands and claims everything to the shores of their neighbors.

Among other things

Everyone should read the article "The world, by China" to see how they are trying to take over everything. Especially Africa

4. Yes, it couldn't possibly have a thing to do with their crushing of Hong Kong

so everybody must be following one of the most hated leaders in the world (ours, sadly) in lockstep as he tries to pick fights he has no chance of winning.

5. Everyone wants answers about where COVID came from.

Because it completely upended our way of life, possibly forever, or until we get a vaccine. But as long as Trump is president, we won't get those answers until he is gone. And I am seriously afraid that if he's reelected, we will go to war against China over this, and it's a war we will not win.

10. Scientists have already said, multiple times, that Covid wasn't manufactured in a lab

I guess there's value in knowing if it originated with bats or another animal. I think it's a waste of time to fret about it. It's useless to try and assign blame when then most important thing is figuring out how to live with the specter of the virus until there is a vaccine.

11. Of course our president doesn't see it that way.

He will believe any batshit crazy theory that is floating around the internet and spend a ton of time promoting it on his favorite TV talk shows.

6. I don't know how China can claim the US is starting a cold war. They've had 100,000 fake social

media propaganda posts removed, have moved to exert authoritarian control over Hong Kong 30 year early, and exarcebated the Corvid-19 crisis by blocking reports on the nature of the epidemic in Wuhan, and refused to share scientific evidence about the virus with other countries.

9. Trump's sorry legacy: 100,000+ Covid deaths and a Cold War with China

Biden is going to inherit a mess. But I am confident he will assemble a team of experts and allow them to repair broken parts of the government. He will be a real leader and not an attention-seeking narcissist.
