Not really a reaction although the timing makes people think so. Since US left TPP, some members (in South America) have voiced inviting China. China responded multiple times as "actively considering it and examining it". These members are the only ones who are not in RCEP.CPTPP is a reaction to AUKUS. I am still a but confused though what is China's true objective with that one though. Is it joining or is it getting denied and then being able to criticize Aus + Japan for prioritizing conflict?
Cant believe if a French person wrote this one.
He hope so, lol.For those of us old enough to remember, prior to 2011, the common refrain from the West was that Communist China "just can't innovate" because China didn't allow "free thought" and was "culturally crippled by sticking with strict confucian principles and not straying outside the lines". Such racist shit was of course upended with Huawei's 5G, quantum research and AI and TikTok.
Needless to say, you don't hear any of that crap anymore because it's self evident that this was nothing more than anglo COPE. Now, it's about trying to contain and stifle Chinese innovation before the rest of the world finds out and adopts it. The Anglos are culturally weak and insecure about their place in the world, having been bequeathed a one time post ww2 tech and industrial dividend which they used to try to dominate the world.
Hu's trolling aside, he does raise a good point about the inevitable release of Meng demonstrating the weakness of the Anglos:
