All Hail Emperor Xi

By December 26, 2018 No Comments
“It is completely selfish for any nation to put its interests above the common interests of other nations and the international community. It will lead to a path of self-isolation.” – China on the actions of the Oval Office.

Is it a cause for concern that China is blazing through economic, military, and financial progress? Are their burgeoning ambitions mere selfishness or will they assume moral responsibility over the international community? In a world where whoever screams the loudest gets heard, we question if the strategic intentions of Xi’s politburo have been distorted. Is the superpower tussle between China and the US inevitable? The time is fast approaching.
