I predicted a little while ago that tensions with China would get worse and it seems they are. Hillary Clinton recently took a passive-aggressive stab at China when she was speaking in Africa last week. China took offense to her comments and retorted that “her trip was part of a hidden agenda.”
We’ve seen Chinese warships in the Suez canal recently also, which is very troubling as we all know that trouble is brewing in the area. I would certainly not like to see China engaged with the U.S. in the middle east conflict, but I think that is where all of this demonization and antagonizing of China is heading.
So we have the off handed comments by Hillary Clinton, and ongoing provocation by the U.S. in the South China Sea. I really think the U.S. needs to pay closer attention to what they can really do with a failing economy and infrastructure that is falling apart. I’m afraid the time for that has passed, and all we can do now is pay attention and hold on…it’s gonna get bumpy!
