The concluding episode in a sorry tale of unrequited hopes & a divorce without a marriage.

Happily it all ends well... for one party at least.

For the other the future looks decidedly uncertain...

After many years when China was seen as more or less as a friendly if distant neighbor she suddenly found herself under attack.

It was claimed she was too successful, had been too self-interested & it was claimed she had been unfair in what she had done.

The West turned out to be a haughty & fickle love interest ultimately.

It scorned normal relationships, was rather exploitative & grew ever more suspicious...not to say paranoid.

A fractious divorce without even the attempt at a marriage transpired.

As things stand the two sides grow ever further apart. Trump’s every move mads the situation increasingly one of permanent frostiness.

His unwilling minion @NATO acts as a kind of cynical divorce lawyer always seeking advantage over the other.

One side alone trying to patch up a relationship while the other relentlessly wrecks it is doomed to failure.

And so eventually China & Russia made new friends & started new relationships.

And the more they did so the happier & more secure they became...

A sad affair. Unrequited hope. Rejection. Abuse. Misunderstanding. Suspicion. Divorce.

But ultimately? Did they all live happily ever after?

One side is looking happier by the day.

And it is not the West...
