Wang justifiably warned Blinken to ensure the US backs off its encroachment into Chinese domestic affairs. Whether it be through the State Dept., CIA, or military, the US has long sought to secretly undermine China instead of cooperating in the open as a friendly partner. The reason for these schemes is simple: the US can't fathom a world in which it can't bully each nation into doing its bidding
As China rapidly strengthens its military capabilities — and subsequent aggression — the US can and must use both unilateral and multilateral diplomatic and military strategies to confront what has now become the US and its regional allies' number one threat. Preemptive but cautious moves are necessary to show China a united Western front willing to defend places like Taiwan if need be.
There is a 10% chance that there will be active warfare between the US and China before 2027, according to the Metaculus prediction community.
