How is CHINA challenging the AMERICAN EMPIRE? – VisualPolitik EN

We had the Roman Empire, the Spanish Empire, the British Empire… now we live in the age of the American empire… No other country
has such a military presence in so many places. Even in a remote place like GUAM, in the middle
of the Pacific, America has a military base… and… that’s pretty useful!
The fact that you can buy a mobile phone made in South Korea with just one click is the
outcome of global capitalism, yes. But global capitalism would not be possible if trade
wasn’t safe. Those American bases are there to protect all those ships that move goods
from one place to the other. And this is the ultimate reason why America invests so much
in having the strongest army, unchallenged by anyone… UNTIL NOW.
Who is challenging this empire? Of course, China. How is it doing so? You’ll see in
this video. This is the million dollar question… Why
does America have such a big army? You might argue that it doesn’t really need one. In
fact, just by looking at a map, you can see that America has a big advantage. It’s secured
by two oceans, making it almost impossible to attack or invade. Nonetheless… America has the biggest army
on the planet. It has more than a million active military personnel and almost 800 military
bases located in 70 different countries and territories all over the globe. Britain, France
and Russia, by contrast, have about 30 foreign bases combined.
Just look at this map. America is just all over the place. And there is no country that
can challenge them… Oh wait a minute! Maybe there is? Yes, my
dear viewers, today we are going to talk about CHINA. Here on VisualPolitik, we’ve talked thousands
of times about China’s economic progress. It’s the World’s factory and many Chinese
companies are starting to become big competition for the technological behemoths. But now we’re
talking about their military. More specifically, their military presence in the South China
sea. And believe me, this is no joke. China’s South China Sea Play: The End of Beijing’s
“Peaceful Rise”? The definition of “String of Pearls” was
first used in 2005 in an international report given by the Department of Defense of the
United States. In this report it was predicted that China will try to expand its naval presence
throughout the Indian Ocean Region. In this context, the pearls are a metaphor for each
of the military bases China wants to build, making a string that goes all the way down
to Africa and the Middle East, where China imports most of its natural resources.
And, as you can imagine, these military expansions scared the whole world… especially America.
And it got even more scary when the former Chinese president, HU JINTAO, said this in
2009… “The road of peaceful development is a strategic
choice made by the Chinese government and people in the line of the nation’s peace-loving
traditional culture, the trend of our times and the fundamental interests of China”
–Hu JINTAO Yeah… for some reason, this quote that was
intended to chill the Americans out had the opposite effect. It pretty much sounded like
China was… saying the opposite of the truth. But OK, I know what you’re thinking: So
what? What’s the problem with China trying to increase their military? After all, it’s
just another country. And every country has an army, and wants to be safe, right? Why
should we care about China having military bases? Do they really want to surpass the
US? Can they? Today, we’re going to answer all of those questions but, before we do,
let’s take a look back at the history. LESSONS FROM THE PAIN Yes, we said America is almost impossible
to invade. But… there was an exception. That was in the year 1941, when Japan bombed
Pearl Harbor, in Hawaii. A year later, the Japanese invaded the Aleutian Islands in Alaska.
That was the moment when America learned an important lesson: nobody is 100% safe. And
they’d better start caring about protecting the oceans. In fact, during World War II,
the US had to fight among lots of small islands in the Pacific. That was the case during the
Battle of Midway. After the attack on Pearl Harbor the Japanese
tried to eliminate the US as a strategic power in the Pacific and they hoped to succeed by
demoralizing the American forces with another surprise attack. American cryptographers managed
to decipher the date and location of Japan’s attack and prepared a counter surprise attack.
Needless to say, the US inflicted irreparable damage to the Japanese fleet. World War II ended. The Americans won. And
they remembered their lesson: we cannot let this to happen anymore. So what did they do?
The covered the Pacific ocean with military bases! Basically, they kept soldiers on all
those small islands where they’d fought. And now you might wonder… Why is so important
to have soldiers on a small island nobody cares about? Is it that bad if someone wants
to invade an atoll like Midway? Really? Listen, moving soldiers to any other part of the planet
is not easy or cheap, if not done properly. A war ship is a floating city with big guns
in it, a city that can travel 500 to 1000 km in one day. So, moving one of those from
Los Angeles to Shanghai would take more than 10 days. But, if you already have ships and
soldiers in Guam, you can arrive at the Shanghai coast in a little less than 3 days. This is
a great way of deterring potential conflicts. In fact, most of those ships would never have
to fire a single weapon. Being so powerful, nobody would even dare to attack them.
But not only that! Many of these ships are not meant to combat other armies but rather,
pirates! For example, the USS Independence is a war ship created for the main purpose
of combating pirates. And there are many other ships. In fact, the USS naval force is getting
bigger and bigger all the time. And this means, so far no one on earth can match its might.
US Navy to add 46 ships in five years, but 355 ships won’t come for a long time Of course, this gives America an uncontrollable
amount of power. And perhaps this can be worrying to some people. But, so far, it has created
a safe environment where everybody can trade untroubled. Whenever some country or some
pirates want to block a trade route, they have to face all those American ships. This
is one of the reasons why South East Asian nations have become exporting powerhouses.
And, of course, that has benefited China too. The truth is, there are many countries that
would be happy to block China’s trade routes. But… is China comfortable in this position?
Does it like depending so much on America’s army? Let’s have a look! A NEW HEGEMON What defines a territory? Well, a territory
is an area of land under the jurisdiction of a ruler or a state. Not all territories
are born equal, some have abundant natural resources like gems, gas and oil, while others
have little to no resources. The availability of some resources gives the
country they belong to some pretty big advantages in trade. The most obvious example of this
is oil and how much its trade has defined Saudi Arabia’s economy.
But what about the others? Those who have few, little or no resources? They need to
import everything for their industries. They must compete with international bidders to
secure stable supplies of resources, which basically means their industrial cost of production
would also be higher. And this, dear viewers, is essentially China’s
situation. Yes, China has a lot of industry but… almost no resources. Oil, steel, uranium…
most of the things it needs to make those mobile phones, cars or TVs has to come from
other parts of the world. And this appetite for raw materials is increasing day after
day. But this isn’t the end of the story! Once those resources are acquired, China needs
to transport them into its territory safely and for as little money as possible.
The South China Sea is the busiest collection of shipping lanes in the world. It’s the
lifeblood of East Asia, carrying most of its trade and oil. It’s obvious than that China
would very much like to keep these lines of trade open and, preferably, to control them. China also doesn’t have a big consumer market
like the US, so it has to export a lot if it wants to make money, and all these routes
can be blocked anytime by one of the neighboring countries. The communist party, the governing
force in China, also has lots of mouths to feed, so control over this region is essential
for the party to stay in power. OK! Now I know what you’re thinking… China
isn’t the only one! Many other countries have no natural resources either and they
don’t complain! Of course! But there is a problem. Being so dependent on imports and
exports, China only needs one country to block its routes to collapse in a matter of months.
And, oh boy! There are many other countries who would be happy to do that! Especially
one in particular: INDIA. See this string of islands in the Indian Ocean?
Well, those belong to India. And the Indian army could easily block Chinese boats there,
which would mean China couldn’t buy most of the oil it consumes. Most of the oil tankers
that go from the Middle East to China pass through the so called MALACCA STRAIT, right
where Singapore is. We’re talking about almost 20 million oil barrels a day and many
other goods. But if India blocked the routes among those
small islands… good luck trying to get that oil! In fact, this is such an existential
threat to China that their former president, HU JINTAO, used to called this the MALACCA
DILEMMA. But we’re not just talking about India.
In fact, America isn’t going through their best time when it comes to loving the Chinese.
And, again, the American navy has the capability to block the oil supply to China by sea. This
would be far more devastating than the trade wars.
So what’s the solution? The Belt and Road Initiative and its maritime
counterpart: The String of Pearls. The Belt and Road Initiative was initiated
by President Xi Jinping in 2013 with the aim of rebuilding infrastructure and accelerating
China’s economic growth. Essentially, this is a brand-new Silk Road and the String of
Pearls is its maritime brother. In 2017 Mr. Xi pledged an additional $124
billion towards his $900 billion Belt and Road initiative. China is promoting this global trade infrastructure
as a long-term win-win campaign for the 65 nations that have signed up for it. Most western
leaders stayed away from the two-day summit announcing the ambitious Chinese project,
but the 28 heads of state present at what Mr. Xi called “a gathering of great minds”
included President Putin of Russia and President Erdogan of Turkey. “This is indeed a gathering of great minds.
In the coming two days, I hope that by engaging in full exchanges of views, we will contribute
to pursuing the Belt and Road Initiative, a project of the century, so that it will
benefit people across the world.” Xi Jinping. With China consolidating its power and relationships
with countries all over the South China Sea region, it might become really difficult for
the United States to keep being the big boss in charge.
If China were to surpass the US, the United States would lose all of its deterrence power
in a key region of the globe. And this would completely change the rules of international
trade. Americans are pretty worried and earlier this
year the CIA went so far as to state that the US has two major problems right now: Russia
and China and their effort to undermine the US’s influence in key regions like Africa
and the South China Sea. “We are not naïve and we are taking significant
steps on the counterintelligence side so that we have all the defenses that we need” –U.S
Africa Command’s Gen. Thomas Waldhauser. OK! I know what you’re thinking now! America
is a World empire! And we’re only talking about the South China sea here! Of course,
you’re right. In fact, China is only threatening US dominance in the South China sea, not in
the whole World. But this region is one of the most important when it comes to international
trade. And this is why the struggle is so intense.
But the show is still going on. In fact, China knows that, if it goes too far with building
military bases, the US will call on its allies in the region to do the same. This would mean
scaling up military spending. And… look, China and the US might not be the best couple
on the planet. But… they kind of tolerate each other. But the US’s allies in the region…
oh boy! Those nations really have problems with China. We have India for one, and Japan,
among others. And China does not want those guys to increase their military presence.
This is why, so far China is playing a very patient game here. This is a very long term
challenge. And long term, in Chinese, means really long term. We might be talking about
decades here. But despite the slow path, you’d better
remember the term ‘STRING OF PEARLS’ because it’s going to appear more and more in the
newspapers. This is going to be so important that, in the beginning of the next year, on
VisualPolitik, we’ll continue telling you more about it in another series of videos
coming up. So if you don’t want to miss them, don’t forget to subscribe to this

of Pearls is really such a threat to international stability? Where does the US go from here?

  1. As the name south China Sea suggests it might belongs to China. American shouldn't interfere into someone's sovereign jurisdiction

  2. if the west did not buy all this Mada In China shit, then they will never become so strong in China, so i think we have to be carefull and stop buy things Madr In China, as more powerfull they get as more agrasive they also become, and same time we all lose work jobs to China, so why do we let them do it infront of our nose. if no one buy there produkts the fabrik will be forced to go back to US or UK or Denmark where the compeny was before they did move to China, the only rision they do it, is to pay less in salary so they can get more rich them self, the Chairholders, they don't care about you and me or the China man they care about how mutch monye he get him self, and if he can not sell enything he loss all he's monye, but if he can make okay monye to sty in our contry he will do that or come back so he can do that. so stop buy things Made In China you only make them stronger and more bad in you own contry for you and you chrilderen.

  3. The number of military bases and there locations is not true, cause I know for certain that the USA has no military base in Zambia. Please give us accurate information not propaganda!

  4. The most compelling intelligence we have about China's capacity as a world power is visible to us all. It's not it's military hardware, it's is non military infrastructure; that's visible. Most notably is its absolutey monumental capacity to build and commission it's very fast trains which is but one example of China's breathtaking capacity to put in place very major projects with such speed. If it does that, and it does, you can expect that equally, it is doing that just as quickly militarily but not as visibly to us all. In other words, the Chinese juggernaut of military manufacture occurring now is backed by confidence of the regime leadership , characterised by scale , even quality of workmanship. So to China, south China seas skirmishes are just scraps and distractions to all the military planning and delivery of military equipment that is occurring as we speak, and occurring with extraordinary speed. There is one name that encapsulates that.. The word is MIGHT, military might and supported by putting their greatest brains to that. If the Chinese do things with MIGHT, it is to be feared. In Australia to the north and inland, the military infrastructure there is substantially a relic, a ww2 relic as vulnerable as any third world place when it really comes down to it.
    The question is, does China want to invade, and if it does, I can tell you it won't be Japan, Vietnam, even Taiwan, or the Phillipines.. these place will be cesspools for China, and they would be strangled and halted for years and become sitting ducks for the US and NATO, but I wouldn't rely on NATO nope.. they have their own issues including the UK whose childish Brexit machinations means it can't do anything at the moment particularly with am absolutely goose as leader.
    Australia is the vulnerable country, and wouldn't be a cesspool of problems for an evil regime to attack to our North.
    One civilian thing to do there is make the North and West great.. build new big cities to encourage cleared and skilled immigrants to come and of course our own . We need to decentralise anyway. These are deterrent measures but measures for our welfare, protection and development in a small populated country.

  5. Silly VisualPolitik EN ,Russia and China are in a Demographic /Economic Death Spiral!!!!

    America has more Millennials than Boomers,this unique in the Advanced or Major Economies!!! The 21st century will be the American century just like the 20th!!! Who says,Math Does!!!! 🙂

  6. String Pearls? is definitely a pretty interesting video! I truly did appreciate it so much. Thanks a lot for sharing! Keep it up!

  7. They do it to give a base for their "Coast Guard" and
    aviation assets. From there they can suppress Indonesian, Vietnamese,
    and Filipino activities, like fishing, which it does regularly. Fishing
    that has been done for centuries … until now. They do it to attempt
    to seize resources from the same countries. The US can block them
    anytime they like and no bases in the SCS can prevent that. It's done
    merely to push around weaker neighbors. because it can. BTW, China has
    the largest military in the world, not the US. And it isn't even close.
    Misinformation network?

  8. US build bases all over the world while China build a few bases at its doorstep to protect it's own trade routes and US is complaining like crazy that China is usurping south east Asia and becoming world domineering. US is the biggest hypocrite power in 21st century.

  9. america is not an empire , the only empire is the building in nyc on 34th st and 7th ave.. fact China is the real Empire the US left behind in their Dust !! . wake up america you have become known as evil never be anything again .. stop lying to the in american you know your finished !!!! ..

  10. USA should build a big military base, just opposite Chinese Military Base In SCS. Of course with the following military from Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Brunia. See how the Chinese would react. They are going to scream and jump.

  11. US is scared of Chinese military build up. Ports, belts and road etc. China is truly on its way to establish a new world order.

  12. Empires rise, and empires fall. What the eventual fate of an empire is depends entirely on how desperately the empire tries to maintain its grip on power. The Roman empire ended with Rome in flames, while the British empire simply morphed into the Commonwealth with London being noticeably unburned.

  13. There about 70 dots on the world map but more accurate is must be about 1000
    I miss dots in Bahamas, Bahrein, Bulgaria, Cuba, Greece, Greenland, Iceland, Italy, Kuwait, Mozambique, Netherlands, St. Helena, Turkey, United kingdom etc. etc.
    Many countries got many more like Germany, Japan, Iraq, South Korea etc.
    And guess what …

    some basis got nuclear bomb right for the action.


  14. To all who hate America, let me tell the truth. China is a beggar and a robber. China has robbed all US Intellectual patent property, makes, Made in China, sold all over the world. China by itself has yet to invent the wheel. If you visit China, you will see everything is US copied. The only thing China makes are Paper Tigers and paper lantern. Everything you buy cheap, made in china, are actually American copies If China is an economic power, why Xi is afraid of Hong Kong Chinese? Why China wants to take away HK freedom of free speech and turn all private HK companies under Communist Party Ownership? Why I say China is beggar? Without US dollars China is nothing. The Chinese currency is worthless without the backing by US dollars. There you have the real truth: China is beggar and begging Donald Trump to remove all tariffs goods made in China. If China is economic power, why china XI is begging to Trump, please, please, remove all tariffs. All currencies in the world today under Trump are worthless. Even Iran minister flew to France to beg Trump to remove sanctions. There is no power on earth that can take America under President Trump.

  15. The Chinese alone can't do SHIT to the American Empire. Only America can kill America. So long as we have the petro dollar and the World Reserve Currency, our empire is safe. And make NO MISTAKE! China, Russia, or anyone else, we will fight ww3 to defend those jewels in our crown! Just ask Quadaffi…or Hussein…oh yeah, you can't cuz they're fucking DEAD! See, told ya. (they tried to fuck with the petrodollar) Say what you will about America, but compared to the last several empires, we are actually pretty good, I mean as far as empires go and all.

  16. Both America & China is evil powers ; I think it's INDIA which should the global super power for better future for the people all around the world

  17. You talk of Africa as a key territory। Don't you think you have your priorities, overextended।

    The whole of quad, all four countries, don't have the total gdp exceeding that of China and three of them are chronic sick now, with the Fourth (India) having hit it's own leg on the axe, on advise of USAID.

    And with new tech like drone Poseidione and Df21, coming in fast, your navy is looking more and more like a liability.

    Your economy is hooked onto debt. Your debt is now at about the same level, as a percentage to your gdp, as it was just after WW-2. Without an equivalent war having been fought.

    Your tech can almost completely be substituted by better options.

    You are, stuck.

  18. The mother f—kers can have it. It would be nice to spend my taxes on OUR people. F TRUMP, RICH OLIGARCHS GLOBAL INTERESTS, and the military industrial complex also. We are always the stereotyped spoiled, stupid , fat, people until somebody else needs us someplace. We never asked the be called the''leader of the free world'' ! Churchill hung that moniker on us after WW2! Like we are FRIGGEN BATMAN ! Let CHINA do it! We should have turned off our Goddamned burglar alarm a long time ago ! F this policeman shit ! Everybody hates a sucker, and that's what we are! Call China for 911 now world. For war, famine, disease, or flood. Maybe now we can buy some new boots, and go fishing. Good luck ! Here take our hanky , (along with the badge) China . You'll need it to wipe the spit off your face . Where is that poll at ? lol

  19. 1. It's not an American empire, it is if anything the 2nd reign to the British empire! They speak the same language, use the same clock and many other things are just British from the USA.

    2. Oh man the USA really isn't going to like me then! Since from taking look at where they have bases, the countries that didn't have bases are the most lucrative.

    3. I actually don't see a problem, a good house has 2 good parents, so if China wants take the role as 1 why does the USA have a problem? Or wait, maybe it's because the USA has probably been the worst empirical leader maybe ever! The British, Roman, Mongal, Persian even the Egyptian empires gave back to their 'peoples', they built roads, provided houses, hospitals, schools, gave freedom of religion, etc. apart from the last (which is free) what has the USA given?

    That word, empire, should come with clauses, and if it did, the USA wouldn't make the cut!

  20. China is not challenging and will never challenge American empire. It's strengthening military forces are for self-defence. The past history of foreign invasion has deeply hurt Chinese feeling and thus they want to ensure that the past tragic events will never happen again. Unfortunately, many countries either misjudge or twist China's defence policy.

  21. So many stupid people make comments ,sometimes make you disappointed of the world, but think other way, most of them just crap, wouldn’t affect anything.

  22. First 10 years, Sam says China's development is dramatic,however still being a gentleman
    now the second 10 years, Sam feel challenged and realized things are not in his control, he starts being a b**ch and play dirty.
    how about 10 years in the future,I wonder what kind of thing Sam will become?

  23. USA and China, I dont see one challenging the other. They had done 69 with ea other all the time, America sux China d for their market while China sux China d for investment and for the West to turn a blind eyes when they invaded smaller countries. Nowaday, Harvard, Oxford, Cambridge professors teach their student that China is the most peaceful country in the world.

  24. Once again, more stupidity from VisualPolitik EN. The USA isn't an empire and never has been. Yes, it has some territories, but most of those places have benefited. The US had the Philippines but immediately set them up for independence. The US has NEVER been an empire the way the British were. The US doesn't have that large an ARMY the way stated here. It has a large military, but not that big an ARMY. So much wrong with this video, I don't even know where to start.

  25. 我们是东亚病夫时,我们被说是黄祸; When we were the sick man of Asia, we were called the yellow peril. 我们被预言是下一个超级大国了,我们被指是主要威胁。When we are billed to be the next superpower, we are called the threat. 那时我们闭关自守,你走私鸦片来强开门户; When we closed our doors, you smuggled drugs to open markets. 我们拥抱自由贸易了,你责骂我们抢走你的饭碗。When we embrace free trade, you blame us for taking away your jobs. 那时我们风雨飘摇,你铁蹄犯境要求机会均等; When we were falling apart, you marched in your troops and wanted your fair share. 我们要整合破碎的山河,你说我们“入侵”…… When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, free Tibet you screamed, It was an invasion! 我们试行马列救国,你痛恨我们成为异己分子; When tried communism, you hated us for being communist. 我们拥抱资本主义了,你又恨我们当了资本家。When we embrace capitalism, you hate us for being capitalist. 当我们的人口到达十亿,你说我们在摧毁地球; When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet. 我们要限制人口了,你说我们践踏人权。When we tried limiting our numbers, you said we abused human rights. 那时我们一贫如洗,你视我们贱如狗; When we were poor, you thought we were dogs. 我们有钞票借给你了,你怨我们令你国债累累。When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts. 我们发展工业了,你说我们是污染者; When we build our industries, you call us polluters. 我们有货品卖给你了,你说我们是地球暖化的因由。When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming. 我们购买石油,你说我们榨取兼灭族; When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide. 你们为石油开战,你说是为了解救生灵。When you go to war for oil, you call it liberation. 那时我们动乱无序,你说我们没有法治; When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law. 现在我们要依法平暴,你说我们违反人权。When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights. 我们静默无声时,你说我们欠缺言论自由; When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech. 我们不再缄默了,你说我们是被洗了脑的仇外暴民。When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobes. "为什么你这样憎恨我们?"我们想知道。“Why do you hate us so much﹖”we asked. “不”,你说,“我不恨你们。” “No,” you answered, “we don't hate you.” 我们也不恨你; 只是,你了解我们吗? We don't hate you either, but, do you understand us? “当然了解”,你说, “我们消息多的是,有AFP、CNN、还有BBC……” “Of course we do, ”you said, “We have AFP, CNN and BBC's ……” 那么你究竟要我们怎样生存? What do you really want from us? 回答之前,请仔细的想一想…. 因为你的机会不是无限的。Think hard first, then answer, because you only get so many chances. 已经够多了…. 这个世界容不下更多的伪善了。Enough is enough, enough hypocrisy for this one world. 我们要的是同一个世界,同一个梦想,靖世太平。We want one world, one dream, and peace on earth. 这​​个宽广、辽阔的蓝地球,容得下你们,容得下我们。This big blue earth is big enough for all of us

  26. trade causes too much natural resources to be used had we been smarter and never started globalization back in the 50s China and my niece other countries would still be using oxcarts it's our fault we have to deal with this problem now and so much natural resources are used to move materials in these giant container ships things should be made locally here in the United States with no exceptions shoes clothes everything made here robotics allow you to make a lot more today than we could in the past with fewer people doing it America could still be a Utopia but we need to somehow EMP the rest of the world that's an electromagnetic pulse I don't care about your I hate Canada and Trudeau I mean come on now America for Americans only America first and fuck the rest so what we need to do is come up with a plan that will allow us to safely shutdown the world including nuclear power plants and let everybody walk in bamboo shoes again and no natural resource will be consumed by anybody but America that would be the best plan for America unfortunately too many fools like Clinton Obama Hillary what open borders for America and the reason they want open borders it says we can import millions of foreigners to be a slave workers and they will hopefully vote strictly Democrat you see how this will destroy America don't you and this is what China hopes America will do pizzelle destroy your own power we are stupid God bless President Donald J Trump and blue lives matter and the rest of the world fuck

  27. Your by us an mainly everything you said is lie an the hole world knows China economy is more powerful then the USA also USA is just cocky an run their mouth only small countries than are dependent on USA will believe that example countries an I can see your an American

  28. Siimon
    If China's bases in the China Sea were just to ensure the free passage of shipping and the prevention of piracy they would not be in conflict with the nations bordering the China Sea.
    However, China is claiming that the China Sea is their property. That only they can fish or drill for oil in that region. This is in conflict with international law on what areas of an ocean are the exclusive economic zone of the adjacent nation.
    China is even challenging free passage of American Military Ships through the China Sea. in 2017 a chinese ship collided with an american destroyer and in 2018 a Chinese Destroyer charged and nearly hit an American Destroyer. This cannot be allowed to happen and will result in conflict. The US may have to forcibly remove the chinese bases from the artificial reefs where they have occupied in the China Sea.

  31. When US deals with any country. They bring war there. When China deals with any country. They offer a lot of investment and win win solutions. China is going to rise. Just wait.

  32. A tad bias without historical backdrop. The US has a mind set to change governments not to their liking. Competition is good, that is why more auto companies gives more
    more offerings and innovations as with competing governments. Russia gave the US enough competition to prevent major wars.

  33. You're kinda forgetting a major piece. That is advancements in technology. 3D 4D printing will eliminate China. EVERYTHING you want to buy will be 'Printed' made locally. The "COST" of labor, err 'cheap labor' what China has been famous for will no longer matter. Once this happens, China goes back to being a third world nation with 2 billion starving peasants. China.. has no skin in the game of technology, they only STEAL.. things. They do not have the capacity to INVENT, CREATE… This will always be the case. There is no China in movies of the future.

  34. The truth is now america is back to defend collapsing occidental values, there is no empire, and Chinese empire is fading very fast…

  35. the world did not belong to rome, the world does not belong to america, when china rules it will be for a time , the world will not belong to china . The world belongs to Yeshua Messiah forever. The lord God gave it to his Son .

  36. america has a string of pearls of its own and it doesnt want ANYONE to have a string of pearls. such childishness . such nearsightedness . it can not stop the world , the world will crush america eventually for not letting it be free . The Lord Yeshua Messiah will one day come to stop the economic/arms race by bickering childish nations. He will bring and end to all wars . He will bring Love and peace .

  37. most western leaders stayed away from the two day summit . . . .these are countrys that hate china…. .china tookdown names on its blackbook . . . america does evil . . china does evil . . . the Lord Yeshua Messiah is coming to end all wars and put an end to evil . . . . . . .

  38. the CIA says russia and china are problems.. .. the cia doesnt want anyone to build anything and wants america to be the bully in the playground . . . i dont understand why all the children in the playground just dont want to lie down and play dead . . . . you tell me why Mr. VisualPolitik EN . .

  39. Bases overseas
    US: 600

    USA doesn't have a Department of Defense It has a Department of Offense.

    We like war, we are war like people. We like war, because we are good at it. You know why we are good at it? Because we did a lot of practice. This country is only 200 years old and already we have had 10 major wars. We average a major war every 20 years in this country, so we are good at it! And that is good thing we are, we are not very good in anything else anymore. Can't built a decent car, can't make a TV set or VCR where the fuck. Got no steel industry left, can't educate our young people can't get health care for our old people, but we can bomb the shit out of your country alright?! Especially if your country is full of brown people. Oh, we like that, don't we? That's our hobby! That's our new job in the world, bombing brown people! Iraq, Panama, Granada, Libya, you got some brown people in your country, tell them to watch the fuck out or we will god damn bomb them! Well, when is the last white people you can remember that we bombed. Can you remember the last white people? Can you remember any white people, we have ever bombed? The Germans! Those are the only ones and that is only because they were trying to cutting in our action. They wanted to dominate the world! Bullshit! That's our fucking job! by George Carlin

  40. China market is much bigger than the US market. Remember, China has 4.5 times population of the US. Too much US arrogance in the video.

  41. Where are the empires in human history? Gone! How? Run out of money because of military expansion and corruptions. We are on the same path.

  42. I am laughing so hard on his opening statement. Guam is part of the US. He made it sound like it was being occupied. Guam is and has been a US territory for over 120 years!

  43. I don't know where Politico got your map from guy, but the US doesn't have military bases in most of the countries you claim. None in Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Chili, Peru, Panama, South Africa, Morocco, India, Kazakhstan, Mongolia, Denmark(mainland), Ireland, Sardegna, Yemen, Pakistan ect. The US has not had a base in Saudi Arabia in the last 10 years but that may change soon. I like how the map includes Hawaii like it's a foreign country.

  44. American empire? give me a fuckin break man. It's not like we have governors and viceroys in other countries. cept for maybe hawaii, not sure bout that but fuck cmon.

  45. those who control


    control the WoRLD

    john halford mackinder

    Now you want to know
    What is USA doing over there:

    IT'S IMPERATIVE that no Eurasian challenger emerges capable of dominating Eurasia and thus of also challenging America

    Zbignew Brzezinski

  46. How can you call it challenge when US support Taiwan and separate our country ? What China do is just self defense , and US is not China's overlord.

  47. The USA does not need a military force near the south China sea anymore than any military might following the trade routes that leave that the south China sea all the way to their destinations where military might from the USA is not needed near the trade destinations for Chinese ships to both buy materials and sell goods.

    For the simple reason China is a nation that focus on globalized trade with nations. Because China lacks a great deal of resources to maintain any meaningful construction and so must trade goods often made with those resources it is dependent on other nations for the most basic requirements of any modern state which means it shall never create strategy of aggressive warfare. Plainly it has not taken lands by force for the sake of their resources but merely that they once belonged to China and so China has always preferred peaceful agreements being easier to achieve than any act of force.

    If the USA Build's a military presence at china's trading routes it will be perceived as if the USA wishes to destroy china's trade which would crash there entire economy and nock them back to the stone age, and so it will appear as a threat to China as there is no other reason to be there, accept to weaken china's perception to be able to survive this is not good to do to another nation without some cause to ruin endless lives in excess of a billion people who would suffer endlessly without free passage through the whole of China's south sea trade routes.

    Such a nation of China perceived economic globalization as the means to which they feel powerful and so any threat to china's trade will be an act to take china's strength and confidence away and yet there is no reason to stop a trading nation from growing just because their is a fear of what China might became as China by its very lack of resources will be using trade and so economic methods to obtain power and influence and not military might to obtain power and influence as they must first develop foreign trade to remain in a modern capacity and so having that requirement they will already be focused on economic power and influence where war will quickly end its modern capacity as long spread out trade routes are a weakness but further growth economically has no such limitations and so already has characteristics in its nature due to what way to power might weaken them and what way of power might strength them it simply becomes second nature from what to expect from another nation and so in this case its way of power will be economical and not militaristic.

    So military might near the routers of the south China seas from the USA will be a threat against china's way of life and this will reduce the relationship of the USA with China in a very bad way as it is not necessary to threaten an economic power just because it will get bigger that is not a lawful reason to trouble China's need to protect its trade routes from those who would hinder their economic might merely that other nations might fear it as using military might to hinder and demand from such an economic power is not a lawful means of war as fear of an economy is not a lawful means of war, and hindering and demanding is an act of war when one nation acts to limit another nation and for what cause?

    For actions that are lawful and fair such is trade and growth. Any nation that uses military might in such a way to hinder growth fears what a nation will be as such fears are without proof of any future hostel action from said nation as such an attack out of fear is a barbarian who refuses to be civilized who uses war to oppress from ones own cowardice to dominate what must remain free from such oppression.

  48. "This is the beginning of the end for the American Empire." Haha! Fast forward 2019. America is destroying Chinese leverage in the world. Now What? 😎

  49. China has its strengths, but also significant weaknesses. I mean it doesn't even dare to open up its domestic internet market to competitions from Google and etc. Neither does it dare to open up its currency fully. What it does in Africa is of course very positive, but that is based heavily on vendor financing and the strength of YUAN. In August, the US raised the stake in trade war, and YUAN easily collapsed 15% from its peak.

    A war between China and US can lead to MAD. This year's parade leads me to believe that China has enough launch systems and warheads to destroy the world. So let's not go there.

  50. Yea listen to yourself, American keeps 10 aircraft carriers and 130 some ships to protect trade routes and combat pirates. Who is going to believe this crap? World has been in peace? I believe the people in Iraq, Libya and many countries will disagree.
