What if China supported PR independence?

By José M. López Sierra – Puerto Rico


What would the United States (US) do if the People’s Republic of China would send a government official to Puerto Rico to support her independence? Does anyone doubt that the US would shoot down that Chinese aircraft? And, would that be worth a nuclear war?

Although the US has never complied with the United Nations’ (UN) Charter of 1945 that prohibits colonialism for being a crime against humanity, and has ignored 40 UN resolutions asking her to immediately return Puerto Rico’s sovereignty to the Puerto Ricans, she says that she supports Taiwan’s independence.

Taiwan has been a part of China for 350 years. Puerto Rico, on the other hand, had never been a part of the US, until the US government militarily invaded her 124 years ago to make her its colony.

US Congresswoman Nancy Pelosi wants to visit Taiwan against China’s wishes. In order to do so, her aircraft would have to enter China’s airspace without authorization. Should Nancy’s plane be shot down, what would be the US’ response? Should the US attack China militarily, that would only bring Russia into the conflict too. And what would all that be for?

Why doesn’t the US take care of the 99% of her own citizens that are hurting? She doesn’t, because, by engaging in military conflicts around the world, that helps the 1% get even richer. How else do you think that 8 of the 10 richest men in the world are US citizens, while the US is the epicenter of the coronavirus with over a million deaths?

If China respects the Monroe Doctrine, then the US would be wise to respect Xi’s Doctrine too. If the US doesn’t, she would be entering the dragon. And, that would be a huge mistake!

Don’t enter the dragon!

Nací en NYC. Me mudé a Puerto Rico en el 1980 donde eventualmente me convertí en independentista al ver que PR no se administra para los boricuas. Me retiré tempranamente de la pedagogía para luchar 24/7 por la descolonización de Puerto Rico a través de marchas pacíficas anuales y empujar a la ONU hacer su trabajo. Necesitaremos un tsunami de gente protestando permanentemente para obligar a USA a cumplir con la ley internacional que prohíbe el coloniaje.
