(Tea Party 247) – There has always been competition between the US and China and recently with Trump’s imposition of tariffs on Chinese-imported goods, it seems as though the possibility of escalation between the two countries is not a far-fetched idea.
Despite the fact that China is a major offender of violating human rights, with their modern-day concentration camps, going to war with China would not be in the best interest of either country.
Former US Secretary of State Henry Kissinger said in a recent interview that a conflict between the two countries would be “worse than world wars.”
Summit News reports:
Former US secretary of state Henry Kissinger warns that a catastrophic conflict between America and China that will be “worse than world wars” is inevitable unless the two sides sort out their differences.
Kissinger made the comments at an event hosted by the National Committee on US China Relations in New York last night.
“We are in a difficult period now. I am confident the leaders on both sides will realise the future of the world depends on the two sides working out solutions and managing the inevitable difficulties,” said Kissinger.
A permanent conflict between Washington And Beijing would be unwinnable and lead to “catastrophic outcome,” he added.
“It’s no longer possible to think that one side can dominate the other…it will be worse than the world wars that ruined European civilisation,” said Kissinger.
The U.S. and China have been embroiled in a trade war since President Trump began imposing tariffs on thousands of Chinese-made products in a bid to end unfair trading practices.
According to Yahoo! Finance, the US and China have been in a “tit-for-tat tariffs war” and justifiably so given the fact that China has benefitted greatly from their business dealings with the US and we have lost out by a lot. Jobs have gone over to China while we continue to allow them to export their goods here at ridiculously low cost to them. It’s high-time a president say “enough” when it comes to China taking advantage of the US.
Not to mention the fact that by allowing them to take advantage of us we are only building up their economy and giving them the means to become a world dominating super-power. Not exactly in our best interests.
Luckily Kissinger believes the current trade dispute will end “in a positive way,’ according to Yahoo! Finance and we do too. Of course, President Trump knows what he is doing, especially when it comes to China, a place he has had extensive experience doing business with in his own past.
It’s safe to say the United States is in good hands with President Trump at the wheel. A conflict with China is not in our best interests but neither is allowing them to walk all over us. Something previous administrations had no problem doing. Especially considering Joe Biden’s sons involvement with the Chinese government and how that led to lenient US policies towards Beijing under the Obama administration. That’s a topic for another day.
It’s good to see Kissinger has faith in President Trump and his abilities to work the situation out with China in a positive way.
