The only thing I got from this is your distrust and how you heavily underestimate China. Let's agree to disagree because I hate these cynical "we're doomed and falling" talks.The point is this part is in regards to whether or not China's domestic economy is robust enough on its own. Considering how many are not like you and I and your family or what you have perceived as the majority. Anyway I'm pessimistic about China's economic chances. Japan may follow the US's overall stance and policy on China but even limited to US, UK, and Japan alone, that's quite a blow. Huawei's chances at developing 5G infra for the west have diminished further yet.
By all means we can think it's not too bad and isolated cases of a difficult situation, but I'm calling it a trend now. Reminds me of trade war chest thumping. China's worst cheerleaders were almost as idiotic as the guys on the other side announcing US victory a month in. Japan's gov paying that much for their multinationals to move out of China is unprecedented and Japan has been trading with China on relatively good terms for decades.
An attitude of magnanimity can be pretty bad. You never recognise genuine threats and acts of belligerence and just hold your head high and take the beating. China and CCP need to respond to the recent allegations and announcements. Allowing states to even propose suing China for reparations is dignifying something China's not even been close to proven guilty of. And even then, they will need to prove both that it isn't a natural virus and China did it all on purpose AND China covered it all up intentionally to spread it which again is actually untrue if you look at the timeline of how China behaved when some low level officials apparently got told in December... the theories about CCP knowing in Oct/Nov is fabricated and have zero substance or backing not even suggestions... weaker than theories of US soldiers spreading it. Anyway that is all just about impossible because it's just about surely untrue. What was the response to all the recent provocations? Nada. Some bs theories floated about a US bioweapon unleashed by soldiers/agents in Wuhan. If they're going to even suggest that, they need proof and evidence otherwise expect the counter attack to be even more vicious. Absolute idiots in charge. They know how to play the internal politics game but totally outfoxed here. I'm not shitting on the CCP, I personally think they've been pretty on top of the game for the better half of their history. I'm just saying it appears they've got no cards to play now and falling back on shipping out donations which is failing to get any goodwill because there's more talk of Chinese substandard supplies being shipped out.
