Seems to me that all China has to do to end up on top is wait for the US to continue its drawn out sepuku act...

That was kind of weak, justifying the betrayal of the Kurds by citing instances where others have been involved in equally despicable betrayals. I mean, the Soviet/Nazi Germany non-agression pact, is that really to what you want to compare yourselves to? It is one thing to be a patriot and quite another thing to try to justify anything and everything what one's country does.

A conversation with George Friedman and Peter Schiff would probably be the equivalent to putting a portable hole into a pocket dimension.

as a polish guy I need to say, from our perspective this sound like portion of propaganda for western media, one of my best friend is from Ukraine, he come to Poland because in one month he was making money for for week of life(east Ukraine). Before Russia attack Ukraine, he had good life, when I show him that podcast he said"i already use to Russian narration, Putin destroyed my county, because him support from ctizens in Russia was low" for me it is just sad, our neighbours suffer trought russian imperalism
