Excellent article. Very pertinent to us in Australia since our foolish government has signed us up to AUKUS (Australia, UK, US - although some of us prefer to call it USUKA). This deal commits Australia to subsidising the UK and US armaments industries, and to turning Australia into a land-based launch pad for US navy and airforce attacks on China, all aided and abetted by a sycophantic and rabid corporate media. The fact that China has been Australia's best trading partner seems lost on these fools.

So Australia hitches its little wagon to a declining white-man's club, reliving the glory days of empire and Chinese opium wars in a futile attempt to prevent the re-emergence of China as a world power so that the US can continue its fantasy that a unipolar world is normal and eternal.
