Is this the noise you do to cover up that the fact that - although you just publicly pooed your pants over it - there really is no imminent war between the US and China?
Ours is not to question the belm noises of someone with that sort of IQ, Rich.

China's sabre rattling, blatantly. What's Biden going to do about it? Or rather, what are the people who are in charge of Biden going to do about it? They are more focused on Russia and getting Putin out, which also works for China in the long run, they'd love a piece of Siberia.

Biden sets his sights on China

The new administration's first few moves and statements on China suggest that President Biden may continue some of the Trump era's most assertive policies.

The White House rhetoric on China so far is remarkably similar to the Trump administration's.
  • In addition to the emphasis on "strategic competition," Psaki also mentioned "China's economic abuses," its influence over international organizations, its forced technology transfers, and "holding China accountable" — all issues Trump administration officials repeatedly highlighted in their public remarks.
  • One major difference from Trump-era rhetoric is Biden's strong emphasis on multilateralism. In her remarks on Monday, Psaki answered almost every China question with a reference to America's "allies and partners."
  • Bi-khim Hsiao, the de facto Taiwanese ambassador to the U.S., attended Biden's inauguration after receiving a formal invitation — the first time since 1979 that the Taiwanese representative has attended a presidential inauguration. The unprecedented move suggests the Biden administration may uphold the Trump administration's Jan. 9 lifting of all self-imposed bureaucratic restrictions on the U.S.--Taiwan relationship.
  • New Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has come out swinging on China: "China presents the most significant threat going forward because China is ascending," Austin said during his Senate confirmation hearing last week.

Putting Biden on stage is abuse.
Fucking hell man, we've just had four years of a barely coherent lying baby man who is clearly addicted to drugs and who regularly shits himself on stage, can't walk properly, control his limbs or drink from a glass - then you get one day of Biden actually normally and cracking jokes with reporters and you think it's "abuse". Do you ever think about relating what you type to the real world in any way at all or you just burble along in your bizarro world wondering why everyone either ignores or laughs at you (or occasionally gets annoyed)?

Not trying to pick issues with anybody, but the identification/universal pronoun here is wild coming from non-citizens. Does most US news come over via the American web, or does it filter through on European television and print media as well?

It's on the telly, front page of the Guardian... definitely much more so with Trump and the election excitement. It's just more interesting than Merkel resigning of Marcello getting back in with almost seventy percent on Monday. And UK politics is just too depressing now with no light at the end of the tunnel. I gotta watch something...

Not convinced that 'the last guy was in just as bad a shape' is the ideal counter.

Is there not some sort of medical exam that incoming presidents must pass? Strange that we have a better guarantee of Crawley Town's incoming right back's mental acuity than that of the most powerful man in the world.

Again, this would be a more convincing argument if you'd also made it about the last guy. Who, to pick a few examples, claimed stealth bombers are literally invisible, said injecting bleach might cure covid and thought being able to identify a picture of an elephant showed him to be a very stable genius.
