US and China has had a mutually beneficial relationship. Until stupid people have finally woken up and realized what everyone predicted 20 years has now come true and China is poised to overtake the US in economic and political power thanks to western business, and now westerners are freaking out.
China has always been stealing IP and spying etc. but now they're flexing political muscle to coerce western companies and government to capitulate on certain positions.
The US and China had better come to some kind of agreement and follow it in good faith, or decades of constant cold war-type crap is inevitable.
It doesn't matter anyways, China is destined to become a global superpower more powerful than the US. Give India a few more decades, they'll be right there too. Asia will rule the 21st century. The West had a good 500 year run.
