Troll or not (and he is bloody annoying), the matter of US hegemony is a point worth raising.

After all, it's difficult to defend the double standards under which something in China or Iran is worthy of condemnation but the same thing in Saudi Arabia is "a matter of concern" and in Israel "they have a right to defend themselves".

It would be a different matter if we were treated like adults and told "we're concerned about China's economic power and we're trying to stay on top so here are some measures we're taking" (although WTO rules might get somewhat on the way).
