China will try to avoid military adventurism because of the lesson highlighted by American examples. But in the yrs ahead, it will find itself pulled towards foreign military entanglements because of its rapid expanding interests and footprint around the world.

1/ BRI routes
China's military, #PLA, is increasingly called upon to protect China's interests around the globe, including along the routes of the #BRI with its share of unstable polities. The rapid modernisation of the #PLA will enable China to project power much more effectively

The combination of the demand for #PLA to project its power in advancing China's interests globally as well as its modernising capabilities mean that the #PLA will be more likely than ever to be pulled into a foreign military entanglement.

\0 #BRI and its disdiscontents: while in NZ #PwC、United Frontlings、pollies、their families、cacademics tirelessly tout Xi's project, others begin to realise its consequences. How long will it take for them to volte-face & reinvent selves as #nuanceds?…
\1 Take, for the sake of the argument, one Jason Young of @nzccrc. In '15, he was apparently invited to some #Xinjiang BRI event in and liked it just fine. As per 曹参赞's retroactive #CorrectGuidance—“you will listen!” And sit up and listen they did. #WIN…
\2 So that was '15, OK. But not a year ago, he was telling the People's Daily he believed China would certainly “further globalise”. Very stable genius! (It will take one to back pedal from all this BRI-luv.)…

Bombing of #Syria: a horrible action based on preposterous claims of chemical weapons use.
Please consider in the broadest context: not fundamentally about oil, resources, or contractors. It is about a conflict with the world's New Paradigm led by #Russia-#China alliance and #BRI
The constant barrage of #Russiagate and #MuellerTime nonsense, aimed at preventing @realDonaldTrump from developing good relationships with #Russia (and #China), is partly to blame for putting him in a position where this bombing made sense, just weeks after announcing pullout.
So, cui bono? The no-good and still-existing British Empire, which brought us the fake Steele pee-pee dossier, the absurd rush to a conclusion in search of evidence re #Skripal, and the Syrian propaganda crew known as the "White Helmets":…

April 1, I rallied w/many Chinese American organizations in Philadelphia for PEACE and JUSTICE between the USA and China.

We condemned the Taiwan Travel Act & anti-China actions by Congress & FBI.

Most important, we called on USA to join China’s #BRI!
This is the first half of a speech given by my friend and colleague Richard Black, a founding member of @ZeppLaRouche’s @SchillerInst. Please listen to his devoted call for US-China Win-Win Cooperation.

He underscores Premier Li’s call for a great increase of US-China trade.

Regarding the decision of the Trump administration to impose tariffs on China:

Naturally this policy runs counter to the absolutely necessary approach -- for the USA to join the #BRI as an equal partner.

Nevertheless, I implore my friends to step back and take a wider view -->
In 1999, Tony Blair gave an infamous speech at University of Chicago on behalf of the British 'establishment,' setting policy for the international Neoliberal/Neocon foot soldiers of the British Empire.

His subject: a sophistical justification of evil regime change wars. -->
Blair stated: "War is an imperfect instrument for righting humanitarian distress, but armed force is sometimes the only means of dealing with dictators."

He went on to claim that 'national interest' is among the viable justifications for overthrowing a dictator. -->
