US must be ‘role model for China’

Washington should follow rules if it wants Beijing to do so: Mahbubani

If the United States wants China to emerge in a manner that does not shake the world order, then it should be a role model and strengthen a rules-based global order that will similarly constrain Washington’s behaviour.

The “wise move” in preventing Beijing from walking through loopholes in international law requires Washington to lead the way, said Professor Kishore Mahbubani, dean of the Lee Kuan Yew Institute of Public policy, at a keynote discussion on the second day of the FutureChina Global Forum 2013 conference yesterday.

“The more the US breaks international law, the more China will break it, I can guarantee you that there is a correlation,” he added.

“If it doesn’t want China to take an aggressive posture on maritime disputes, it has to ratify the Law of the Sea convention…If it doesn’t want Chinese drones to be flying around the world 10 to 15 years from now, the US has got to stop its drones now.”

He added that the US has a window of opportunity of about 10 years while Beijing still accepts its place as No 2 in the world order.

“Ten years from now, I’m pretty confident that when the Chinese…have that credible financial muscle, they will begin to behave and think as No. 1,” he said.

“That is why I emphasise that we got to use these 10 years to create a world order that is a win for the US, China and the rest.”

But this requires a radical change of mindset in Washington that is “almost impossible” to get, Prof Mahbubani added.

Some participants, however, questioned if Beijing would follow the existing rules as a superpower or flex its muscles and alter the rules of global governance.

Another panellist, University of Chicago’s Professor Yang Dali, was less pessimistic about a possible clash between the two given the interdependence of the world.

“We should not underestimate how much the US has made efforts…The US was magnanimous in welcoming China into the global trading systems and in opening US markets,” he noted.

Other experts mostly agreed the world’s two largest economies had to learn to share power and realise absolute primacy in Asia Pacific is not going to prevent escalating tensions or conflict.

The two-day forum touched on wide-ranging issues such as rising Chinese nationalism and the South China Sea disputes.

Professer David Shambaugh of George Washington University said on the sidelines of the forum that rising nationalism is partly to blame for Beijing’s assertive stance in its territorial disputes.

“The Chinese government is under significant domestic pressure to be tougher and to have a more robust policy, certainly towards the US, and to other nations in Asia, and on questions of the South China Sea,” he said.

Professor Hugh White from the Australian national University also weighed in on regional territorial disputes, both in the South China Sea between China and four Asean states and the East China Sea between China and Japan.

He said these are a proxy battleground in the power play between the US and China as they jostle for pole position on the global stage. “It is not the case that the US and China are strategic rivals because they take a different view of the South China Sea, they clash because they’re strategic rivals.”

Published on Jul 6, 2013

Why US Will Not Want To Share Power?

Another great analysis of Prof. M. Chossudovsky!

The most evil group in our world and the biggest burden to EVERY nation are zionist-jewish banksters and their thugs.

Since over a century these filthy parasites are sucking out nations wealth while robbing and indebting whole nations, systematically spreading dirtiest lies and hatepropaganda, creating wars and destruction !

Since centuries this parasitic SCUM of humanity (no other description is appropriate) is the biggest danger to nations.


Why am I not surprised that the U.S. is controlling both sides


Egypt’s army increases the destruction of Gaza tunnels

Published on Jul 6, 2013

Egyptian army has increased its crackdown on tunnels between Gaza and Egypt following the toppling of President Mohammed Morsi. These days, you can see Egyptian bulldozers destroying tunnels along the border with Gaza more than any time in the past. Egyptian army has also deployed tanks which have pointed their guns towards Gaza.

The once bustling tunnels area nestled between the southern town of Rafah and the Sinai Peninsula looks more like a ghost town. There’s no more transfer of goods or other vital commodities via the underground lifeline for the blockaded coastal enclave.
