In the circle of friends that I have the usual complaint is against United States imperialism around the world – whether it be for promoting the allied energy corporation evilness in Iraq or for trying to overthrow governments in Latin America to influencing policy in a myriad of other states around the world.
However, we are seeing very similar behavior these days from China, particularly with the way they have been acting against Japan and Vietnam. The Vietnamese are not happy with the imperialist tactics of the Chinese and have been rioting. There are now military standoffs.
Good old communist China is now becoming US 2.0. What a sad world we live in.
