China's fast response on Trump's 'nuke' tweet


Shortly after the opinion-article on What would be Trump's biggest mistake, published by the blog, Donald Trump tweeted a very alarming message that made China respond quickly.

From china.org :

China on Friday called on the United States to take the lead in cutting nuclear weapons after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump used Twitter to propose the expansion of his country's nuclear capabilities.

"The world's largest nuclear stockpile country should take the lead in making substantial cuts to its nuclear arsenal so as to create conditions for total elimination of nuclear weapons," foreign ministry spokesperson Hua Chunying said Friday in response to Trump's tweet.

Trump tweeted Thursday that the United States must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capabilities until such time as the world comes to its senses regarding nukes.

Hua said that the United States, as the country with the world's largest nuclear stockpile, bears special and primary responsibilities in nuclear disarmament. China always stands for and advocates complete prohibition and thorough destruction of nuclear weapons, she said.

Although China's response could be considered quite mild, the fact that it came very quickly, justifies to some extent what has been estimated in blog's article, that “the Chinese continuously upgrade their military forces, as well as, their nuclear arsenal, partly because of the stupid neocon policy, adopted by Obama, that makes them feel directly threatened and quite nervous.

After all, the Chinese could consider Trump's tweet as a warning against North Korea and even take advantage of the situation. They could calmly agree that nukes should be prohibited for non major powers that could act irresponsibly, showing that the consideration of China as a major power should not be disputed.

It was also quite weird that, at the same time, Putin made some very friendly statements concerning Trump.

As also mentioned in blog's article, “What would be the 'right approach' for the neocons who are running out of time in this brutal race? It would be, probably, to focus primarily on China, which is indeed the biggest economic threat, but doesn't have the military power (like Russia) to confront the US. [...] it seems that Donald is following such an approach! He appears to be conciliatory concerning Putin, but continuously provokes the Chinese! Everything shows that Trump is determined to continue the Obama 'Pivot to Asia' anti-China legacy, but this would be also his biggest mistake.

But, again, Putin is not naive to drop China for the sake of Donald. Especially when he sees NATO military forces concentrating next to Russian borders and the Western sanctions still active.

    What if another, more long-term game is being played? Trump says all sorts of stuff, much of it contradictory. He has indicated various appointments, which have a lot of people panicking.

    But we tend to forget that as yet Trump hasn't actually appointed anybody to anything yet. He can't until he is actually sitting behind the desk in the Oval Office. Neither can he actually start instituting any policies until that time, the afternoon of January 20th.

    Trump also has to be aware that whatever it is he does, or whomever he appoints will receive tough opposition from one quarter or another. It seems to me that the recommended strategy for the Donald to reduce the opportunities for those opposed to him to organize themselves against his aims, would be to name a lot of controversial names, outline a number of contradictory policies, keeping everyone off balance, and wondering and speculating on what he will really do.

    Then, after January 20th, we may find him appointing entirely different people than those names we have heard suggested so far. Ideas like the nuclear expansion or moving the US embassy to Jerusalem might just end up being waved off by Trump as at this point he goes with some different people and in a different direction.

    This all sounds like good red meat to throw to the neo-cons, somewhat muting their attacks on him, until AFTER he is in office and many of the neo-cons are out.
