1. #NixonMao #rapprochement 50th ANNIVERSARY: SOME FACTS & LESSONS.
In only 50 years, everything changes. Strategic interests of two great powers aligned then as much as they clash today.
I hate threads but my blog is not out yet: here some disorderly thoughts.
2. In 1972, China needed to avert a terrestrial invasion from #USSR. The #UnitedStates was keen to gain a heavy-weight partner to checkmate #Moscow; but the long-term objective was to bring the most populous country into a rising US-led global economic order for the US to profit
3. In the following decades, the relationship was not void of tensions. However, strategic interests were important enough to save it from #TaiwanRelationsAct, #Reagan anti #communism and support for #Taiwan; #TiananmenSquare; #StraitCrisis 1995-1996; #Belgrade bombing

This is sickening. Waiting for #trump supporters who claim to support #USMilitary to explain how they can continue to support a man who hates our #troops. @JoeBiden’s son #Beau served in #Iraq. @DrBiden has supported #militaryfamilies for years. #USMC #USN #USAF #BidenHarris2020
#Trump referred to former President #GeorgeHWBush as a “loser” for being shot down by the Japanese as a Navy pilot in #WorldWarII. #Bush flew 58 combat missions in the Pacific. He enlisted at 18. Trump enlisted never.… #SupportOurTroops #VoteBidenHarris
When #JohnMcCain died in 2018, #Trump became furious when he saw flags lowered to half-staff. “What the fuck are we doing that for? Guy was a fucking loser.” McCain was taken prisoner after flying his 23rd bombing mission over N.Vietnam. #Trump has flown a mission never.

As @fred_burton remembers #Bush41, one event sticks out in his mind.

A thread ⬇️
"One cold November night in 1981, I reported for midnight duty protecting #Bush41 and his family at their residence on the grounds of the U.S. Naval Observatory in Washington, D.C.
That night, the #intelligence division of the @SecretService passed out a photocopy of a warning that a hit team backed by #Libya had been reported headed for the #UnitedStates as part of a plot to attack senior U.S. government officials.

1/ Look, no need to be cruel or overly shitty about it, but all this #GeorgeHWBush hagiography is nonsense. It is only bc of the current grifter-in-chief that he looks decent by comparison. Yes, he was no doubt a better human being than Trump...
2/...but this is a guy who orchestrated a drug buy, by having cops entrap a young dealer across from the WH, just to prop up the racist war on drugs...
3/ ...and a guy who replaced Thurgood Marshall with Clarence Thomas, and the guy who gave us Gulf War I, on bullshit pretense. Putting aside what that war did to Iraqis, on a purely self-interested level, does anyone still believe it made the U.S. anything but LESS safe?...

George H.W. Bush was a white supremacist war criminal-as VP to Reagan, he was key in flooding inner-cities w drugs, part of a genocide on Black/Latino pple He funded death squads, trained torturers & waged brutal imperialist wars. The crimes are too many to count

The US Invasion of Panama 1989-1990

The First Iraq War 1991, Operation Desert Storm: Mass Murder From A Safe Distance

The US coalition dropped 88,000 tons of bombs, equivalent to over 7 Hiroshimas. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqi people, civilians as well as soldiers, were killed or injured.…

George HW Bush was the personification of public service, having enlisted in WW2, served in Congress, CIA director, as an ambassador, RNC chair, Vice President and President - he was a man of dignity, grace and integrity #GeorgeHWBush
George HW Bush was a great friend to Australia, especially close to Bob Hawke and Paul Keating, who visited Australia in 1991-92, and Keating invited him to stay at Kirribilli House on a 1994 visit #GeorgeHWBush
This is the most remarkable thing you’ll read today: George Bush’s letter to Bill Clinton on handing over the presidency: “Your success now is our country’s success. I am rooting hard for you. Good luck.” #GeorgeHWBush
