#拜登宣称美国不寻求新冷战# 将上周签署的AUKUS防务协议与中国申请加入 CPTPP 贸易协定的决定放在一起看,具有极大的启发性。在全球舆论的法庭上,中国毫无悬念地获胜了。

AUKUS 是一项军事协定,代表了典型的冷战思维。无论出现了什么问题,美国总是首先考虑军事因素。但其在东亚影响力减弱的根本原因是经济。美国是一个日益与世界脱节的全球霸主。

中国已申请了加入CPTPP贸易协定。这项协定最初由奥巴马发起,称为TPP,旨在排除中国。之后特朗普又把美国从 TPP 中退出来,而中国则正在加入。美国治国方略称得上是糟糕透顶。

美国在东亚三大贸易集团中的缺失证明了其当前的孤立处境。相比之下,中国是“一带一路”的缔造者(139个成员国),RCEP的主要成员(15个成员国),并且有加入CPTPP的意愿(11个成员国)。

当中国向世界伸出援手,尤其是向发展中国家伸出援手时,美国与两个(实际上)它的附庸国(英国和澳大利亚)形成了军事协定。美国与皈依者结盟;中国与不结盟国家交往。

全球舆论的法庭不在西方(占全球人数的 14%),而是在发展中国家(全球人数的84%)。中国的贸易政策与他们有关,也同样体现在了疫苗方面。中国每2剂疫苗中就有1剂给了发展中国家,这和西方极端刻薄的心态相去甚远。

The juxtaposition last week of the AUKUS pact and China's decision to apply to join the CPTPP trade agreement is hugely revealing. In the court of global public opinion, China wins hands down.

AUKUS is a military pact. It is a typical cold war mentality. Whatever the problem, the US always thinks first in military terms. But the fundamental cause of its waning influence in East Asia is economic. It is a global hegemon that is increasingly out of touch with the world.

China has applied to join the CPTPP trade pact. It was originally initiated by Obama, called the TPP, and designed to exclude China. Then Trump pulled the US out of TPP. Now China is joining. American statecraft at its very worst.

Nothing sums up the US's isolation better than the fact that the US is not a member of any of the 3 major trading groups in East Asia. In contrast China is the founder of Belt and Road (139 affiliated countries), a key member of RCEP (15 members) and wants to join CPTPP (11 members)

While China reaches out to the world, above all the developing world, the US forms a military pact with two of what are (in practice) its vassal states (UK and Australia). The US allies with the converted; China engages with the non-aligned.

The court of global public opinion is not in the West (14% of global pop), but in the developing world (84%). China's trade policy is about them. Likewise its vaccines. It has given 1 dose to the developing world for every 2 in China. A far cry from the West's extraordinarily mean mentality.
