Still, in a fashion only fitting the Biden administration, these two neighboring states could soon find much more in the way of friendship—all thanks to Blinken’s latest comments…
Secretary of State Blinken criticized China for their genocide of the Uyghur Muslims, and they deserve every bit of criticism over this, but the State Department did absolutely nothing to address the problem.
Perhaps we should be announcing heavy sanctions on China over this, perhaps we could stop buying every little thing from them, and bring manufacturing back home—it certainly wouldn’t hurt the supply chain.
We could even galvanize their muslim neighbors to take economic action against China as well. Maybe they could shut down the belt and road initiative in their countries until China relents and stops the mass murder of innocent people.
To call China out for a genocide, but then propose absolutely no solutions is a pointless game of posturing. We don’t want a war, but let’s stop giving them money, let’s stop letting their foreign nationals invest in the domestic affairs of the U.S.
At the same time the ‘experts’ at the State Department are posturing against China, they are also antagonizing India for nebulous reasons.
Either way, this pointless antagonism of two neighboring countries is poor statesmanship at best, and in my opinion, there is just no way the people at the State Department don’t know any better.
Critics of the latest State Department rhetoric had this to say:
By the minute, these two comedians, Biden and Blinken, are losing millions of friends in India. They may just achieve what was unthinkable a month ago. Drive India closer to China.

Hindu fascists are persecuting Muslims in India but its not the reason why Blinken is concerned, its the fact India just like China & Pakistan have done trade deals with Russia. #IndianMuslimGenocideAlert #IndianMuslimUnderAttack https://t.co/5xelR7ddFP

Blinken’s latest comments on the Uyghur genocide were reported by The Epoch Times:
“These crimes were continuing and included: the arbitrary imprisonment or other severe deprivation of physical liberty of more than one million civilians; forced sterilization, coerced abortions, and more restrictive application of the country’s birth control policies; rape; torture of a large number of those arbitrarily detained; forced labor; and draconian restrictions on freedom of religion or belief, freedom of expression, and freedom of movement.”
After starting a war with Russia, Pakistan, soon China, is India next ? When will Ukrainian-American US Secy of State Anthony Blinken have enough of wars ? https://t.co/0pmkk8kpeJ

Exact same playbook as Blinken is using with China. India aren’t playing ball with regards to the Russia/Ukraine conflict so this is the opening step on an escalation ladder.

The State Department’s recent antagonism of India appeared on Reuters:
“We regularly engage with our Indian partners on these shared values (of human rights) and to that end, we are monitoring some recent concerning developments in India including a rise in human rights abuses by some government, police and prison officials,” Blinken said on Monday in a joint press briefing with U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin, Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar and India’s Defense Minister Rajnath Singh.
