Where we are now was always China’s end game. They play the long game and would have known full well that Wall Street greed could be used to their advantage to decimate western manufacturing and exert their authority when they accomplished this. That’s exactly what we are seeing now and they will continue to get more belligerent the more powerful they get.kind of like what the US has been doing for the past I dunno almost 100 years?
the way the US (and her allies) have treated China over the last 20 odd years with importantly no regime change in China means they remember full well how they have been treated (as a source of cheap labour for rich overseas companies). Big companies like Walmart that "negotiate" by walking into a room and telling you what they want and what they will pay. The abusive relationship might be over. We are at their mercy now having destroyed all our local manufacturing capacity for the most part.
End of the day, is the west reaping what they've sown here? I have no idea how people are not surprised that China would wake up one day and say, I'm done with this abusive relationship.
