Now of course this is not aimed at you.
Are you referring to Asia as mostly China? Or the middle east? Philippines and others don't really seem to be part of this discussion en masse. And I guess that China hasn't forgotten? What did we do to them? They are the ones with the money and resources right now and not the others. Are they acting out of justice in representation of another country exploited by the West?
Remember, if you've read Confessions of an Economic Hitman, you'd know that the west made deals with the leaders of those nations and those leaders exploited them. Slaves that came to America were sold to the white man by the leaders of those tribes in Africa as that was just normal business of the day.
I would say that it's only in this modern time of the last 80 years or so have the West been taking by force, but deals are still being made behind closed doors with lots of money to be made.
My point is about the deals being made and China's deals with the U.S. have only made each of them stronger. China can't and won't do anything to hurt the U.S. as we are their mule pulling the cart.
I'm referring to the East as a whole, whether that means the Middle East, China, India, South-East Asia, Australia, or the Pacific.
There were many occasions were the West forced China into submission, back then China refused to trade with the west as they had nothing you guys had. So the British bombarded the capital with their metal warships forcing them to reopen trading. That is just one example of how the West used its power to make China submit.
