Substituting Bashar for Hafez to Understand Middle East Inconsistency

Reader comment on item: Asad's Art of the Double Game
in response to reader comment: They bungled it

For those trying to assert the purported negligence of Chinese interference in world politics might consider this: the Chinese are many things, being considered inscrutable as one of the primary notations in dealing with them. Even when occupied by the Japanese, Japan never really had full control; they lost because they never did have control.

Do not err in thinking that China under the Communistic Regime as an enormous, but inept influence in world politics; they are where they are for no less than exporting and extorting such influences in foreign politics and let that be the lesson when reevaluating what happened in America. The 46th American Administrative Chief Executive made that perfectly clear when running for election back in early 2020.

So, if such influences are so easily made in American politics, Iranian hegemony in Syria might make more sense when realizing that agreements with China are in place and Chinese influences are in vogue.

It's been more than twenty years since this topic made public by Dr. Pipes has been evaluated; and the only thing changed is the gray hairs on all the participants who cannot get past that the Chinese did in fact precipitate the virus; for who is willing to say the Chinese are incompetent; not this observer.
