That's why the West needs the poor (India) and the racist (Australia) to be willing to act as cannon fodder, ready to sacrifice their own national interest for the "West".The West threatening to form an alliance to gang-up against China...? They already did that and it's called the West. Failed at it before now so they have act like it's something new because everyone knows they're innocent little little blond girls wearing their best Sunday church dresses and are only now working against China because committed the greatest crime of all and that's not bending the knee and pledging blind loyalty to the West. Just like with Trump, someone else is expected to sacrifice the most not having China their number one customer anymore. Yeah the world is going to stop selling to China and don't make any money because the West says so? The only way that can happen is the West has to pay all the countries that do business with China what they would lose doing what they want. Which Western countries are going to cough up their money. They're not providing those resources. They're in competition to buy those resources. They only way they will win is paying more than normal. It's an empty threat. They're greedy first. Yeah they don't want to admit it but that's why it'll never work for them.
The Philippines learnt that lesson well enough; all the "thought and prayers" and "premium expensive american weapons" don't mean shit if the west are too pussy to actually draw blood.
Come to think of it, the West often makes use of non white janissary cannon fodder for their armies, eg turks in NATO, and now Indians in QUAD. The purpose of such non white cannon fodder is to soak up Chinese bullets so that the white aryans can come in and declare victory, like they did in ww2.
