At what stage do we find our balls ?

We are not the same country as we were in the Cold War.

We have big problems of homelessness, lack of healthcare, institutional racism, domestic terrorism, poverty and pollution.

Like the agnostic who just sighs and accepts whatever may be, will be, we may no longer have the ability to act on everyone else's bullshit. If we cannot get our own house in order, we will be useless to the world and we will hand victory in the Economic War to China.

That ship has damn near sailed...

You would think so. But oddly enough, China keeps fucking up in several industries from materials to engineering and giving us all kinds of potential attack points that we tend not to see while we discuss political strategy instead of economic logistics.
Bingo. That’s why the rumors of Xi’s house arrest may be true.

Star Trek: prime directive. Fiction, but something to consider. Leave them alone if they stay in their lane. If they attack others, let them have it.

both the replies above have valid points BUT please when will we evolve above the school yard bully mentality ?

we , the democratic west , effuse the glory of democracy and yet we allow noisy minorities to cower us ..
Huh?
there's a hole in the bucket Dear Lisa

that's exactly what's happening , the US along with her Allies , and thus the bully is running rampant .
So do we stop this bully? How? And then what?


Violence without purpose is worse than doing nothing, and if you aren't willing to accept the 'pupose', then you absolutely shouldn't participate in the violence.
I think the purpose here is nation building. Again. We'll see if Mid gets all the way to the last question.

The Chinese have ridiculously tight quarantine conditions for anyone who has travelled to another country. Xi could not be seen as ignoring a rule that everyone else has to follow, although Xi's quarantine was shorter than the norm.

I've not followed Chinese TV much but aren't the lockdowns a tacit acknowledgement that sinovac is essentially a fail? How do they address that rather obvious elephant?

The Chinese approach to COVID has been an abject failure. Xi finds himself in an impossible position. He cannot admit his policies have been so wrong-headed, while at the same time moving away from said policies

Their vaccine is a failure as well. However, I think this failure actually plays into his autocracy and allows Xi control without accountability. Shitstain was the same way. DeSantis is the same way. W the Stupid was the same way.
