From 20 to 22 of November, Robert O’Brien, Assistant to the National Security Affairs of the US President, led a delegation to Vietnam. This is the second group of senior US officials to visit Vietnam in the past month.
As one of the few countries with the best control of the epidemic in the world today, Vietnam has made adequate preparations for the second visit of senior US officials in a short period of time.
It is reported that O’Brien and his party were taken to the capital Hanoi as soon as they landed. Metropolitan Hotel, then the fully equipped epidemic prevention working group carried out nucleic acid tests on them.
All food supplies of the delegation will be put in the hotel lobby by well-protected staff, and then the American staff will collect it by themselves.
At the same time, the US Air Force plane they took was also prohibited from spending the night at Hanoi Airport. They were required to transfer to Thailand, wait for the end of the visit, and then return to Hanoi to meet with the delegation. Treated as a source of infection.
It is not unreasonable for Vietnam to make such a move. The population of Vietnam is close to 100 million, and the population of the United States is 330 million, a difference of about 3.3 times.
Since the outbreak of the epidemic at the beginning of the year, Vietnam has confirmed a total of 1,331 confirmed cases, while the United States has just exceeded the 13 million cumulative confirmed case mark not long ago.
In addition to not wanting the entry of US delegations from high-risk areas to destroy Vietnam’s excellent epidemic prevention results, the lobbying policy brought about by O’Brien’s trip is also the reason why Vietnam is grieved. Similar to the purpose of Pompeo and his party, O’Brien is also trying to get Vietnam to follow in the footsteps of the United States and act as an anti-China vanguard in Southeast Asia.
In the same way as the US’s usual coercive and lure tactics, O’Brien promised Vietnam a financial aid to purchase U.S.-made weapons and equipment. At the same time, he told Vietnam to limit the total imports of Chinese goods while continuing to purchase U.S. goods.
In response to the South China Sea island reef dispute, O’Brien also asked Vietnam to continue to attack China on this issue, otherwise the White House will impose a large number of punitive tariffs on Hanoi.
As a sovereign country, few governments can tolerate other countries’ diplomats in such a rant on their own territory, or even use tariffs to force them. What’s more, there is still a US government official who is out of office just to act as a spoiler in the world.
It is undeniable that the United States, as an old-brand capitalist power, has indeed done a lot of things to maintain world peace on its way to becoming a superpower and during the period when it was firmly in the position of a superpower.
It was during the Second World War that the US Navy repelled the once-unmatchable combined Japanese navy fleet in the Pacific, bringing the dawn of peace to Southeast Asia.
When the Somali warlord Aidid committed the massacre, it was also the first American elite special forces to try to remove the cancer, and there was even a tragic encounter such as the “Black Hawk Down”.
However, when the status of the US superpower was overtaken by other forces in the world, Uncle Sam also gave up their benevolence, justice and morality, and stirred up chaos around the world, just to keep the dollar’s dominance in the world.
How can such an “America” continue to be loved by most countries in the world?
