Quackonomist Guttersnipes About China's OBOR|
There is no English equivalent for "bonhomie". Anglo bonhomie results in them writing that they want to see China and India "at each other's throats" in the margins of a report by auztralian ambassador to China, Dr. Gregory Clarke. It results in war criminals, Nixon and Henry "useless eaters" Kissinger, asking China to nuke India.
Here's the Quackonomist trying to sully China's Belt & Road project with the usual anglo sad little bastardry guttersniping: So they came up with the anodyne-sounding belt-and-road translation (despite the unfortunate acronym it produces for the forum: BARF).
- China faces resistance to a cherished theme of its foreign policy
Well, that pegs their mental age!
A second problem is finding enough profitable projects to match the vaulting ambition of the scheme, which aims to create a Eurasian trading bloc rivalling the American-dominated transatlantic area.
LOL! China is already the World's largest trading nation not counting the EU as a bloc. The Great Satan is in third place!
Belt-and-road projects are failing already. In Kara-Balta in Kyrgyzstan, Zhongda China Petrol, a state-owned company, built a big oil refinery—then found it could not buy enough crude oil to run it at more than 6% of capacity.
That's the same BS is pointing to China's cities which have yet to be populated and calling them ghost cities.
According to Tom Miller of Gavekal, a consultancy, the Chinese think they will lose 80% of their money in Pakistan, 50% in Myanmar and 30% in Central Asia.
Could be worse! China could be undergoing a HUGE doggie death spiral, be bankrupt, insolvent and desperate and be dependent "on the kindness of strangers" as Mark Carney has put it, for infrastructure or as Jan Philipp Albrecht has put it, "f***ed".
Third, locals in some countries are angry about what they view as China’s heavy-handedness.
Perhaps there are one or two people who don't remember the atrocities committed by the poodle empire. Perhaps they don't exist and have been invented by the Quackonomist.
In parts of Asia, democratic politics have been challenging China’s commonly used approach to deal-making—cosying up to unsavoury regimes.
. . .
In 2011 Myanmar suspended work on a vast Chinese-financed dam at Myitsone, to popular acclaim.
The most unsavoury being the Great Satan, its poodle and its doxy in Palestine. And Myanmar only suspended it after engaging with the Great Satan.
Even in Pakistan, one of China’s closest friends in Asia, Mr Xi has been forced to abandon his usual mantra of “non-interference” in others’ internal affairs. Late last year China openly appealed to Pakistan’s opposition politicians not to resist construction of the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor, a part of the belt that links Xinjiang, China’s westernmost province, with Gwadar on the Indian Ocean.
Assuming the above is true (which with the Quackonomist is asking a lot) talking to politicians in another country is not "interference in the internal affairs" of another country. Only a BS-rag like the Quackonomist would talk such total krap!
Illegally infesting nations such as Palestine, Occupied Korea, Iraq and Afghanistan, to name but a few, and forcing elections IS illegal interference.
