China’s Aggressive Reception of Blinken Reveals Growing Hubris

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken recently visited China, but it seems like the trip didn’t solve any big problems.

Before Blinken even arrived, China showed it was unhappy by launching a missile from a submarine. This was seen as a message to the U.S. that the talks would be tough.

The missile launch wasn’t the only unfriendly thing. It seems like China isn’t in the mood to talk seriously with the U.S. right now.

China’s leader, Xi Jinping, has been saying things that make China seem strong and powerful. This makes China think it can control what the U.S. does.

The U.S. keeps trying to talk to China, but this might be making China think it’s even stronger than before.

Also, China sees the U.S. and its allies as weak because they don’t agree on everything, especially when it comes to Ukraine.

Blinken talked about China helping Russia, but it seems like Europe is still doing a lot of trade with China, even after Russia invaded Ukraine.

The U.S. doesn’t seem to have a plan to punish China for helping Russia, even though it’s been warning China about it.

Some people still think the U.S. and China can work together, but that might not be true.

China and Russia have been clear that they’re working together, but some people in the U.S. don’t want to admit it.

Before Blinken’s visit, China said it didn’t want the U.S. to talk about Ukraine, showing that it doesn’t take Blinken’s visit too seriously.

Chinese media even said Blinken’s visit seemed like begging, and China didn’t give him a warm welcome at the airport.

And then, during Blinken’s visit, China launched a missile. This shows that China wasn’t very respectful to Blinken or the U.S.
