Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
One thing the EU could do is say this is it for everyone, China as well as the US, from here on out.

En un viejo país ineficiente, algo así como España entre dos guerras civiles, poseer una casa y poca hacienda y memoria ninguna. -- Gil de Biedma

But that would work rather better if either a) the EU did not have a record of saying "this is it" to brown people who speak funny, and then turning the other cheek when the Americans do it, or b) we were talking about one of our allies, like the US, Uzbekistan or Israel.
