China bashing is a favourite pastime of the west, especially of the US of A. Now Bolehland is perversely joining in the sour repast.
Whatever China does is always perceived as in pursuit of an ulterior motive.
It is as though China is incapable by virtue of it being itself, to do anything without an ulterior motive. Haha...quite funny lah if not really asinine.
Unfortunately in Bolehland, it is the opposition who are doing the China bashing. They are telling the Malay voters not to vote for Najib if they do not want the Middle Kingdom (and, by implication, the Chinese) to colonise us.
Now, don't get me wrong. Thinking and concerned Bolehlanders don't want Ah Jib Kor and DUMNO & Co to boss the nation for a minute longer if they could help it.
But what Pakatan Harapan is doing is no different from what the ruling coalition have been telling the Malay voters - that, to vote for the opposition is to vote for DAP and the Chinese and the Christians to take over. (That part about Christians is beyond funny lah) Wish all the clowns will cease playing racial and religious cards to garner votes.
China is not out to colonise anyone. You just need to look back at history to say that you cannot honestly claim that it has imperial ambitions, unlike the west as we have seen of the US of A and imperial Britain.
Or even of the Spanish and the Portuguese.
China were the world's numero uno for much of the past thousand years. Britain and the US of A are, by comparison, new kids on the block when it came to being a world power. If China had wanted to, they could have colonised the world.
When Zheng He sailed half the globe, his armada alone could have had wrecked havoc wherever they sailed to and subjugated the natives of the countries they called on.
Even if the opposition coalition manage to wrest Putra Jaya in GE14 (which I hope they do), they too will have to deal with China unless you want to be left out of the loop to economic prosperity.
The west is no longer the hope anymore. America is going nowhere. In fact, the US of A today survives mostly on printing dollars and on selling arms and exporting trouble.
China is trying to do the opposite, to bring trade and business and prosperity. (You can be cynical of course. But no one waits for you)
Not do wars. Or fear-mongering.
If China fails, the rest of the world is not going to do any the better.
For now, at least, the Middle Kingdom is the world's better hope and best bet.
