As I said before, I am not supposed to talk about politics → because I don’t understand that.
BUT … I still have an opinion.
Here is my opinion about recent trends in Chinese “foreign policies”.
The Chinese considered themselves since ancient times as the one and only evolved humans having anything close to such things as “culture” or “civilization”.
To express that, the characters for “China” = central country or middle kingdom or any of those designations can be surrounded by different “names” for NORTHERN, SOUTHERN, WESTERN and EASTERN barbarians. → see image.
So, it seems (for them) only natural to assume that EVERYTHING that could be used to make money (→ see their behavior in the east and south China seas) is theirs. NOBODY, or NO OTHER COUNTRY can possibly have any right to claim anything. Maybe really worthless rocks and polluted water …
I am aware, that I may be violating copyright laws, with a minor change to the image, Mr. Schulz has put it so eloquently in words, I take the liberty of borrowing his wisdom. → see image.
It follows, that Chinese consider themselves to have the “right” and/or “obligation” to invade the space and rights of those barbarians (and maybe free them from their ignorance), since according to Mao:
“Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun. (Mao Zedong)”

Does this not suggest that killing the Uyghur minority in north-west China or the barbarians in Tibet would the one and only merciful thing to do in order to prevent contamination of the absolute superior Chinese civilization?
“Invasion” or “infiltration” is also a characteristic of CANCER. The cancer tissue thinks itself is the most important part in the entire life form, infiltrates surrounding tissues to steal nutrients and thereby in the end kills the host. The analogy between CANDER and the CHINA BEHAVIOR appears so striking to me, I just cannot put it out of my head …
