Quote from: Jacob on August 05, 2022, 03:57:44 PMI think it's an amorpheous thing... they take umbrage at everything they can, with a special focus on things they think they can push across the line as "okay, we won't do that again". The long term view is to push everything across, but at any given time anything they can push is a step in the right direction for the PRC regime.If they could push military aid across, they would. But if they can get the US and other to make concessions on other things to avoid PRC anger, they'll take that.Bullying by milimetres, basically.

Quote from: celedhring on August 05, 2022, 03:37:30 PMYeah, I admit that I'm not particularly clued into all the pageantry of international relations, but if I was China I'd take more umbrage at the multibillion military aid than at Nancy Pelosi.
Quote from: DGuller on August 07, 2022, 10:10:33 PMI've said it before, but I think the only way to combat such attacks by China on private citizens and corporations is to make it illegal to give in to China's demands. By giving companies or individuals the option to succumb to China's demands you're actually exposing them to tremendous pressure by China. The way governments work is that they're the ones who deal with geopolitical shit, in exchange for those falling under their protection not having the ability to negotiate their own geopolitical agreements. That's the deal, and it actually works out to the benefit of the little guy.
