I am sure it has been said before - we all would enjoy to have a good trading relationship with China and any other country for that matter. However their treatment of people (their own and other countries) has now reached a level that seems to have past some unknown threshold for people in general. The US has taken this and seems to be going with it. China is simply upping the ante and I think this will not work in their favour in this instance. Their frustration may lead to war although I think the world in general has past the threshold of acceptance and is now prepared for such and outcome as terrible as it will be. Their (Chinese CCP) level of disregard has gone too far. The US is of course only interested in its own position. They too seem to be on a path of self destruction. A new world is about to be born but with some considerable pain for many. Australia will not escape the fallout and there will be much gnashing of teeth from those whose finances will be impacted both great and small. We see it already in the press. In the end we must have a civil society otherwise the very basis of society will be lost and a pitiful life for all will result.
