When discussing the U.S.–China trade dispute, most reports or commentaries focus their attention on whether there would be a war or a deal, analyzing whether the Chinese communist regime would choose to launch counterattacks or surrender to the United States.
All these analyses are inaccurate, as they fail to address the core issue. What is certain is that the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) can neither fight nor make peace with the United States. That is, it can neither counterattack nor surrender.
There is only one choice left for the CCP—to deceive. There is simply no other option for the CCP.
