The headline could also have come from Caesar's Roman Empire "Divide and Conquer."
13 days after attempt to overthrow US Democracy and overturn the election of Joe Biden, the Trump administration in the name of Mike Pompeo put forward MAGA's China policy of confrontation ... it was a period of Pompeo's scorched earth policy to make life for Democrats impossible. Biden didn't adept but ran with the set policy ... and worse versus Russia.
Excellent writing by Frank Schnittger about a future presidency how unlikely and unwanted ... democracy at work for good or worse.
In a digital world where fake news is spread by Big Tech algoritme, anyone with enough wealth can set the world on fire. The new god is political disinformation and excellent PR staff to cover asses and stupid policy. The gap between government and its citizens grows in a same tempo as inequality. As the World Turns.

China urged to review policies against Uyghurs, UN's Bachelet says
The United States has labelled China's actions in Xinjiang a "genocide" and "crimes against humanity," allegations vehemently denied by Beijing which says its security crackdown was a necessary response to extremism.
Bachelet has come under fire from rights groups and Uyghurs overseas, who say she has stumbled into a six-day Communist Party propaganda tour, including a meeting with President Xi Jinping in which state media suggested she supported China's vision of human rights.
Her office later clarified that her remarks did not contain a direct endorsement of China's rights record.
Speaking at the end of her trip while still inside China, Bachelet framed her visit as a chance for her to speak with "candour" to Chinese authorities as well as civil society groups and academics.
After 20 years of war in Afghanistan and Operation Enduring Freedom, the Trump administration decided to pull out and return the nation to the scourge of the Taliban. This left the regional powers Iran, Turkey, Russia and. Nina to deal with its aftermath. The Chinese are keen to prevent Uyghur terrorists to return to its most Western province.
Uyghurs, specifically individuals of Turkic decent from China's northwest province of Xinjiang, have become a noticeable part of the constellation of globally active jihadist terror groups. Uyghur jihadists first came to the world's attention when the United States and its allies invaded Afghanistan in 2001. While continuing their cooperation with the Taliban under the banner of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM), Uyghur jihadists have now spread to Southeast Asia and the Middle East. ETIM's members are part of the Turkestan Islamic Party fighting with the Al-Qaeda umbrella group in Syria, but other Uyghurs have joined IS in Syria and Iraq, and still others have joined local terror groups in Indonesia.

The policy of the United States is to use "freedom fighters" to spread democracy to disobedient states around the globe. The demise of an empire.
