Why Indonesia Is China’s New Best Friend in Southeast Asia
Beijing is courting Jakarta with promises of investments. Meanwhile, the US is losing sway the longer it dithers over Gaza.

Trump launched CIA covert influence operation against China
Reuters was unable to determine the impact of the secret operations or whether the administration of President Joe Biden has maintained the CIA program. Kate Waters, a spokesperson for the Biden administration’s National Security Council, declined to comment on the program’s existence or whether it remains active. Two intelligence historians told Reuters that when the White House grants the CIA covert action authority, through an order known as a presidential finding, it often remains in place across administrations.

After the Revolutions of 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991, most of the world's communist governments were overthrown, and the Cold War ended. Nevertheless, anti-communism remains an important intellectual element of many contemporary political movements. Organized anti-communist movements remain in opposition to the People's Republic of China and other communist nations.


Ok, so if China and other communist states were overthrown / are no longer communist, what are you rooting for? And why bring it up when rgio was actually talking about the property debt crisis and aging demographic of China?

The epithet "communist" is so far removed from what Marx had in mind it has become absolutely meaningless. One-party rule, autocratic government, dictatorships or even just plain old imperialists are all terms that are way closer to political reality than "communist".

The point was that when it comes to China, implosions or collapses have been predicted (or supposed) regularly. Whether on the basis of ideology and/or economics (facts).

Almost, as I alluded to, as if there is a desire in play. At least you don't share this desire, however anti-communists, an actual common conspiracy (or rather ideology), do.

China's failure would not be good for anyone, and your assumption I'm hoping for it is just conspiratorial, tribal BS.
