GOOD MORNING FROM LONDON #181 7 APRIL 2021
It is a big step for the US to take and the consequences would be immense. This would be a trial of strength. Could the US summon the necessary political clout to ensure a significant worldwide boycott of China? Or would such action bring about a fundamental divide in world sports and world politics as the countries of the world made decisions For + Against?
This is not Sport. This is Geo-Politics.
The US policy is to try to damage China’s reputation with the rest of the world by presenting China as genocidal killers. See my comprehensive article dated April 2021 and titled “China and the Uyghurs” https://grahamperryonchina.
It is a big gamble by the US. Can they arm-twist enough countries to join a Boycott? Or will they fall short and have egg all over their faces?
