Like all good imperialists, what’s good for the Western goose in unacceptable to offer to the Chinese gander. (Image by scmp.com)

President Xi Jinping’s official visit to Washington, and all of that one-on-one face time with Barak “I’m good at killing Muslims” O’Drona, can be quickly parsed as follows:
Xi Jinping and Obama will say a lot of things and make a number of promises during their consultations together this week. That includes the liberalization of China’s state owned enterprises (SOEs: see & listen to http://44days.net/?p=2938). The Communist Party of China (CPC) will never relinquish control of many, many key sectors of the economy. Why? Baba Beijing understands that the West is just slobbering to come in to pillage and rape the country, and enslave the people. If that were to happen, the West would turn the People’s Republic of China (PRC) into scores of balkanized, bloody Ukraines, and Xi & Co. know it. They’ve read their history well and their parents all lived it, viscerally, before liberation in 1949.
The “non-cybersleuthing” of each others’ corporations is dead on arrival (DOA), since almost every Western business in China of a certain size, is and will continue to act as information conveyor belts for the NSA complex. Even if the CEOs make the pledge, the CIA, MI6, DGSE, BND, etc., have so many thousands of non-official covers (NOCs) in the Fortune 500, that they can’t control it. Thus, the Chinese will keep on doing the same and as we can see in the news, in spite of their official denials, their Ministry of State Security (MSS) is very, very good at it. If the West is negligent enough to let it happen, good on ‘em, as they say Down South. Any self-respecting country would do the same thing, in this age of full spectrum spying across the globe.
So far, the defense agreement is probably the most important one signed, the results of which will be more verifiable to all interested parties, and which will hopefully avert an accidental World War III. http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/world/2015xivisitus/2015-09/25/content_21975985.htm Not surprisingly, it was mostly censored, as far as I can see, behind the Great Western Firewall, since it does not fit the “stand tall-be tough-do as we command” paradigm of the imperial, Washington-London-Paris consensus. These days, we can throw in Tokyo, Ottawa and Canberra as well.
Finally, Xi announced that China will invest $3 billion in developing countries, to reduce their emissions of carbon, leaving America holding the environmental desecration-bag, in hand. Obama was sitting in the audience, just two meters from Xi, when he made the announcement. Priceless. The United States of Fortune 500 cannot really seriously do anything to reduce its corporatocracy’s bottom line. So, in all likelihood, in the years to come, Baba Beijing will be going it alone, in trying the save humanity from ecosystem implosion. With almost 20% of the world’s people, China’s concern for the human race is existential. http://www.scmp.com/news/china/policies-politics/article/1861587/chinas-us3-billion-pledge-help-countries-tackle-climate
In sum, President Xi Jinping came to and left Washington, looking and acting more like the world’s dependable, trustworthy head of state, rather than Big Biz-Deep State ventriloquist dummy Barak Obama ever could. This is all just emblematic of how much Planet Earth’s geopolitics have changed in the last generation, and how much they are continuing to flow in the favor of the Anti-West, headed by the empire killing, dynamic duo of China and Russia.
