Is China smart or stupid?

A lot of people do not understand why China is pushing Japan, the Philippines, and Vietnam, countries that are in partial control of strategically important regions in the Pacific, into the arms of Uncle Sam, the very one who China is accusing of stirring up tensions in the Asia Pacific region.

In fact, the reason is very simple, and that could be why people can not believe that is it. China simply does not have respect for these countries (probably because they are much smaller and they are Asian – Asians are target of discrimination everywhere, even more so in Asia). All China can see is that these countries are in her way, but that she should not have to tiptoe around them, and that she can just demand that they must respect her.

You can not look at it from an intelligent perspective. You can not judge whether it is smart or stupid for China to do so. It has to do with emotion, not intelligence. China is being driven by passion rather than guided by wisdom, just like the US was, under the leadership of George W. Bush, when it invaded Iraq, except that the US did it in the name of helping the Iraqis.

The Chinese, who are subjects of discrimination by all kinds of people, are rather prejudiced themselves. In fact, most people I know are prejudiced. People’s views of other peoples are shaped by their own experience, what they are told by others that they know, the media, and their governments’ propaganda. When you check against this list, you can find it easy to understand why people in one country can be very prejudiced against people in another country.
