So much of the world has been kept down by the US. And the intention re China is clear from all the MIC backed 'think tanks' (tanks to control your mind). With Danny HaiPhong ... US puppet states (slaves) = the 'free world'. China's rising economy is about to 'collapse' (has been for for decades, they say).

The US wants world dominion (and has for decades); while China seeks world development. Hopefully the slave nations are beginning to see the light on why they have been crushed for so long and will choose wisely. The world needs win-win. With Cyrus Janssen and Reportify Media ...
