If we didn't have USA then likely most of the world would be a China state. It's bad enough that China manufacturing has most of the world by the balls.
Every democracy needs similar weight competition, including global democracy.
That’s the old way of thinking.. this is why every other decade the US makes sure to highlight their next major (even if minor) target. It’s to keep their populous in a ready state.. ironically it’s what they oppose in other political ideologies.

Wrt China.. not too sure. China in its current form is a US creation.. it used and abused the rules they themselves put in place. I always find the whole WTO thing hilarious as EU & US are the biggest culprits when it comes to subsidies.. China is just a hell of a lot better & efficient at it.

Anyway.. It’s funny how such a global event such as this which should unify shows the US to be a fracturing force in the world. If things miraculously ended tomorrow, US stands alone.

Where the #@! are the announcement of South Africa's new numbers?

At least the Western Cape Government keeps us up to speed with what's going on in the province regarding numbers and breakdowns of it.

No-one works on the weekend I think.
