US Hegemonic Unipolar Agenda can’t lure West to counter China

G-7 has been kept on dividing with objectives to counter China but changing scenario hinted that Europe is no more going to blindly follow the plans of the US who aims at using the European shoulder to launch any kind of cold war against China.

Countering China has never been a choice for the European but it’s a purely United States (US) unipolar agenda that may not acceptable anymore for today’s multipolar world.

G-8 that turned into the G-7 minusing Russia is actually the collapse of the big powers’ monopoly who maneuvered to decide the fate of the rest of the world. In fact, who gives mandate to the G-7 to decide the rest of the world?

Finally, the cat is out of bag, and in the changing scenario, the United States (US) worried about its hegemony that is coming to an end.

The time to impose their agenda on the world stage has gone. Now it’s not easy for the US to implement its agenda after the blatant lies of the Iraq war, which was designed on account of the search of Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD).

Following the Iraq war, the Afghanistan war was hatched to eliminate the Taliban and al-Qaeda. The United States (US) has lost its credibility with such kinds of tactics around the world.

For the developing world, it’s hard to trust and believe in Uncle Sam anymore. When deceiving has become an integral part of the foreign policy of any country it’s hard to find partners and friends coining same old tactics.

Likewise, the United States (US) is in a very awkward moment and even hard to believe by its allies.

The United States (US) witnessed the worst kind of Sinophobia of its history. Joe Biden inherited this from his successor. On China, Biden’s foreign policy is actually a one step forward and a continuation of Trump policies.

The United States (US) imperial foreign policy and aggression towards the specific countries is a big threat to the US rather than any external factor.

Countering China’s Belt and Road Initiative by G-7 countries is actually an acknowledgment of the BRI success and importance by the United States (US) and its allies.

China’s plan to upgrade the underdeveloped countries’ infrastructure is much attractive than the United States (US) colonial strategy in which the exploitation and demands to do more from the third world countries is always hovering on their heads.

Chinese President Xi Jinping slogan of win-win cooperation and a shared future for mankind by giving equal respect and confidence to all countries without discrimination has actually jolted Washington’s imperial strategy.

The socialism with Chinese characteristic is another factor that is perturbing Uncle Sam because the Chinese nation has seen the outcome and now the rest of the world following this model. China’s fight against poverty has become a role model for the rest of the world and more countries are adopting this model to take advantage of the precedents of China towards poverty alleviation.

China’s plan under Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is much lucrative for the developing countries then why those countries will go for the US countering BRI incentives?

The United States (US) has not much to offer to those countries who are already haunted by the US double standards and betraying policies. In United States (US) foreign policy, “US is Back” means Hypocrisy and Double Standards are back again.

Chinese progress and development have been thriving for thousands of years of history. Chinese never occupied the foreign resources and never went to wars to steal the resources, that the United States (US) and Britain did in their horrendous colonial era.

Chinese has been progressing through its hardworking, struggle, and passion, at least there should be a little moral and ethical courage in the West to appreciate it without prejudice and vility.
