Corona Virus: Why is there talk of a US-China war during this global epidemic?
On May 30, 2017, a book was published in the United States which became one of the best-selling books in a few days,
and all policymakers, academics, and journalists started reading it.
(Destined for War: Can America and China Stave Thucydides)
The book mentions the Tussauds Trap, which means that
the war between emerging world power and an existing world power cannot be avoided.
Following the outbreak of the corona virus in the world, the book by Graham Ellison,
a professor of international affairs at Harvard University, has once again become a hot topic.
When US President Donald Trump called Code 19 a “Chinese virus”,
the American Magazine Spectator wrote in a recent report
that the first death at the hands of Corona was an American
thought that would “reciprocate” the fact that China is a world power.
Can Control Through ‘Interests’.
The magazine quoted Professor Graham Ellison’s book as saying that President Trump’s statement falls into the
category of an “irreversible war” between the emerging world power (China) and existing world power (the United States).
What is a Toxoid Trap?
Tosiides was an ancient Greek historian who wrote about the Peloponnesian War between Sparta and Athens.
Tus Saud’s trap is the name given to a process in which the superpower of its time feels threatened that the emerging
power will take its place and it tries to stop it and in this endeavor, there is a high probability of fighting.
War broke out in ancient Greece when Sparta felt threatened by Athens.
Professor Graham Ellison examines the 500-year history and identifies 16 instances in which emerging powers
confronted existing forces and twelve of the sixteen resulted in war.
The book also cites the example of Britain and Germany, when Germany was about to overtake Britain in the
twentieth century when the war began with the assassination of a minor royal family in the Bosnian city of
Sarajevo, which the world today calls World War II. Misses
Professor Ellison says the rivalry between the United States and China is a turning point in global relations.
When the Soviet Union disintegrated on December 26, 1991, and the United States emerged as the world’s sole
superpower, the United States began to think that there was no ideological rival left in the world.
The American philosopher Francis Fukuyama published an article entitled The End of History, which concluded that the
ideological alternative to liberalism had disappeared from the end of the Soviet Union and human civilization.
Has achieved its goals, namely representative governments, a free market, and a consumer-driven consumer culture.
Why Talk of War Between the US and China?
When US officials described Code 19 as the “Wuhan virus” and then “Chinese virus”, a Chinese Foreign Ministry
spokesman warned the United States to “focus on its work” before cursing China. ‘
Another Chinese Foreign Ministry official raised some questions for the United States and demanded that the
United States test a U.S. soldier who had come to Wuhan to participate in military exercises and possibly be infected with the virus.
Show results to the world.
After US officials called code 19 a “Chinese virus,” China’s
ambassador to the United States called on the United States not to politicize the epidemic.
As tensions between the two countries escalated after the advent of Code 19,
the Chinese-based Global Times interviewed Professor Graham Ellison,
the creator of the Tussauds Trap, and asked him questions about the current situation.
Professor Graham Ellison called the allegations against Code 19 a “childish attempt” to divert attention from the real issue.
He said it was an attempt by US officials to cover up their failure to deal with the situation.
There is also an ideological debate going on during this global epidemic.
The United States, which advocates liberal democracy, is pointing fingers at China’s system of government,
which has been accused of covering up the spread of the corona virus.
But on the other hand, voices are saying that China’s one-party dictatorship has allowed it to quickly lock down a
large area without any hesitation and quickly overcome the virus, while liberal democracy is reacting.
Not as fast as China.
Professor Graham Ellison said that if a one-party dictatorship has competently protected the basic right to life
of its citizens while democratic governments have failed, then objections to Chinese measures in such a situation are
tantamount to ‘sour grapes’.
Are Major US allies, including Britain, Spain, and France, are also at risk of contracting the corona virus.
However, they have distanced themselves from attempts to politicize the virus.
However, voices are emerging from India, a new ally of the
United States, in which there is talk of teaching a lesson to China and Pakistan.
A member of India’s National Security Advisory Board, wrote in an article in The Tribune, expressing his
displeasure over the attitude of China and Pakistan during the Corona virus outbreak, citing the spread of Code 19 in the world.
Since then, China’s attitude has been “criminal” and it cannot escape the consequences.
who is considered very close to India’s national security adviser Ajit Pawar,
wrote that the world must now know the consequences of handing over its manufacturing to China for such a long time.
TilakDevasher, like US officials, is angry with the World Health Organization, which has praised Chinese efforts to control the corona virus.
The debate over where the virus came from is still raging.
Is it natural or man-made and deliberately left out of a laboratory? Or did it leak unintentionally?
So far no concrete evidence has come to light that any country has prepared it in a laboratory and spread it in the world for some nefarious purposes.
However, the allegation is being repeated on the doorstep of China.
When the Corona virus spreads around the world, the United States and its allies will surely be attracted to it
and ask for a share of the trillions of dollars that China has amassed with Western economies.
