… Yes, because appealing to the party doulogy solves this issue… so damn well…
I mean politics would never analyze an issue superficially, nooooo way…
Because that would tell you what they’re doing.
They are not crazy, they are not irrational. They’re behaving in a very calculated manner to get what they want.
What they want, clearly isn’t nuclear war, as their regime wouldn’t survive that, so you should think a little more on what it is they could possibly be after.
Here’s hint: think about how China has changed over the past 30 years. Think about what allowed for that change.
Also think about the state of their military. Think about the existence of weapons like these. Think about the downfall of regimes like Qaddafi.
Speech is a tool, and they’re using this bit like an internet troll would; get a rise out of people they can switch around to give themselves a moral high ground.
So do you get what they’re doing now, CT?
