Watching CNN, MSNBC, etc. One might believe Donald Trump's DMZ meeting with KJU was nothing but tea with Hitler; Neville Chamberlain on steroids. At least Trump is trying. If Obama had done this, the American press would be demanding a second Noble Peace Prize.

Wow! What you're suggesting is even more cynical than anything I've
written.

Actually, I really don't believe that. For Reif to be purposely
stoking hostility targeting Chinese would be at AOC-level stupidity.
It works for AOC because she's targeting an audience that's even
stupider than she is, if that's possible. But if Reif tried the same
thing in the MIT community, it would evoke a lot of backlash.

That's not to say that Reif has any idea what's going on in the world.
If you want to know how stupid people are in general, check out this
video.

How do I know that that the hostility actually exists? Reif's letter
is so extreme that I believe that he wouldn't have sent it out unless
actually hostility is a real problem. The fact that he festooned it
with left-wing ideology is there to soften the message that this
hostility actually exists.

Here's what I do know:

  • There's enormous hatred between Chinese and Japanese, and the war
    they fought 70 years ago was characterized by massive atrocities.
  • There's enormous hatred between northern and southern Chinese, and
    the war they fought 70 years ago was characterized by massive
    atrocities.
  • China has been an economic and political disaster since world war
    II.
  • Southern people fled Mao's atrocities by going through Hong Kong
    to Formosa/Taiwan.
  • Colonial Hong Kong became an economic superpower while China
    remained a poor, pathetic, backwater country.
  • Taiwan became an economic superpower while China remained a poor,
    pathetic, backwater country.
  • Japan became an economic superpower while China remained a poor,
    pathetic, backwater country.
  • South Korea became an economic superpower while China remained a
    poor, pathetic, backwater country.
  • Taiwan is becoming increasingly anti-Beijing and pro-independence,
    as younger generations gain power.
  • Hong Kong is becoming increasingly anti-Beijing and
    pro-independence, as younger generations gain power.
  • The recent Hong Kong pro-democracy riots have further infuriated
    the CCP thugs.
  • The CCP are total barbarians, committing atrocities on a daily
    basis, in Xinjiang, Tibet, and elsewhee.

Reif's letter lumps together all Chinese from southern China, northern
China, Hong Kong and Taiwan, when clearly these different groups are
quite different in motivations, with extremely high levels of hatred.
So I assume those different Chinese groups are reflected in the MIT
community, with the same kinds of hatreds. That would explain Reif's
letter.

And that's only one aspect. Reif's letter makes a point of mentioning
Lincoln Lab. If I were working on a confidential project at Lincoln
Lab, and a Chinese co-worker from Beijing came and started asking me
questions, then I would be VERY concerned. What I would do would
depend on the specific circumstances, but I can definitely see that
some level of "hostility" would be justified, given that China is
conducting constant cyberwar against the US, is weaponizing Huawei,
and the National Intelligence Law requires every Chinese citizen to
provide intelligence to the military, even when doing so is illegal,
which means that it's quite possible that this co-worker was working
for the Chinese military.

So yeah, I believe that Reif's concerns are very real, and I blame the
CCP thugs for putting a target on the back of every Chinese citizen.

Will the delay on increasing tariffs on China delay the war? How do posters view the meeting between Trump and Kim?

Trump will cave to the Norks lik he did to the Chinese today. The end.

How is Trump's agreement to not implement an extra $300 bln in tariffs on China equivalent to "caving?"

Although he did say he'd allow some U.S. manufacturers to resume its equipment sales to Huawei, this is likely only a tactic to "pump" the markets higher (or prevent them from an aggressive sell-off) ahead of 2020 presidential elections. Once he sees his victory absolutely secure, there will be no more of this mercy nonsense
