Right. Now that Trump and the Republicans want China to pay USD10tri in reparations. How long would it take for Biden to say the same thing later on?Right on... Like you I hope to be proven wrong as well, but for now my 2 cents is you are on the money but it really wasnt up to Trump... US presidents are largely puppet figures and PR frontmen, like Putin said its the sharply dressed men in black suits that tell them how its going to be etc....
Remember Nancy Pelosi was in drunken stupor preaching to the world the dangers of Huawei 5G while Trump was still POTUS. Pelosi dont know how to turn on a computer. They all take orders and do what they are told... Looking back, many people naively thought Biden would unban Huawei and or release Chinese Princess... No Biden's handlers told him to triple down instead....
The other point of speculation is this wasnt at all an accidental "leak".... that part was for pure plausible denialability purposes... no matter what, those that executed this operation wanted to make sure this never in the historybooks came back to bite US in the sense of the world blaming America for an intentional biovirus release in Wuhan that subsequently caused a scorthed earth of entire global planet via bioweapon....
Not only was the timing and location devious as you said, but the follow up with international smearing and framing of China... it fits America's longstanding MO perfectly to a tee, especially their habit of 'projection'
Now they want to sue China, then get vassals onboard to blame China, make China pay... if enough countries go along with this and all default on debt owed to China it lets America get away with impunity in terms of canceling Tbill held by China whilsts avoiding the consequences of collapse of USD (had the covid pretext never happened)
This is America's great harvesting, covid shutdown giving them excuse to print QE infinity .... the week after signing Trade Deal Phase I, Wuhan explodes with Covid.... basically US realized China wasnt going to kowtow to Plaza Accord 2.0 so had plan B in the works lined up
Dont forget the repo issue was already showing cracks in the system September 2019.... the timing man if all these circumstantial things were presented to jury in criminal case this would already be beyond a reasonal doubt... people have been convicted and excuted on far less evidence
When the unthinkable happens. Which is Biden asking China to pay that USD10tri. Soon, the US vassals would start lining up to ask China for reparations. You can bet that the UK, Australia, and India will be at the front of that line.
The only thing keeping that scenario 'unthinkable' is the PLA. Otherwise the US and friends would already be sending in their gunboats. They've done that before to the late Qing-era China. Hence it is extremely urgent that China builds up its strategic nuclear force to ensure MAD with them, not just merely minimal deterrence. This is the only way to preserve world peace and to complete the rejuvenation of China.
