The foundation of US failure
The attitude that is presented to the world is the cornerstone of the upcoming US political demise.
The sad thing about the once great empire is that Russian or Chinese propaganda has to do absolutely nothing. They can just sit and watch how the USA is pounding itself to death. This is the part where you want to start shouting to the people in Washington to wake up. Instead of helping their arch rivals the US should change its attitude.
Here is the latest example, straight from the horse's mouth, the Foreign Policy:
“The upshot is that America welcomes China’s economic modernization and will refuse the lure of the Thucydides trap so long as China’s development proceeds along lines that do not infringe on American leadership and national security.”
This is the last paragraph of an article in Foreign Policy. Every country can do what it wants as long as the US stays on top. If not, then the US will get angry at you. You can't make this up. Instead of trying to unite nations and help them, it's all about domination and power. If you move one step too far it's no longer honky dory. This posture is insane and will lead the US to catastrophe as China is singing a different song and nations all around the world can see the difference.
The beautiful words about values turn into rubble when you read the quoted sentence. How does Washington want to convince other nations to stick with them instead of turning towards China?
