The US Secretary of State says his nation could "simply disconnect" from Australia if Victoria's trade deal with Beijing affects US telecommunications, warning the infrastructure partnership increases China's ability to do "harm".

Call his bluff. Remind him of this:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Valeriepieris_circle

The Valeriepieris circle[1][2][3] is a circular region on the world map centred in the South China Sea that is about 4,000 km in radius and contains more than half the world’s population.[1] It was named after the Reddit username of Ken Myers, a Texas ESL teacher, who first drew attention to the phenomenon in 2013. The map became a meme and was featured in numerous forms of media.[4][5][6]

In 2015, the circle was tested by Danny Quah, who verified the claim but moved the circle slightly to exclude most of Japan and used a different map projection as well as more specific calculations. He calculated that, as of 2015, half the world's population lived within a 2,050-mile radius of the city Mong Khet in Myanmar.[2]

Addressing a growing trade dispute between Canberra and Beijing, Chinese Commerce Minister Zhong Shan accuses Australia of being the source of tensions, saying it has launched more than 100 trade investigations against China since the two countries established diplomatic relations in 1972.

BM is on your side if you want to be aggressive and untrusting to your trade partners.

Both China and the US are battling for supremacy , the US will do all it can to retain its position as the Global Supremo and the Chinese will do all it can to hinder the US .

Historically all Empires used their stranglehold on monopolies of commodities and backed this up with military force , the British were proponents in defending their commercial assets no matter where they were .

Nigeria as an example produced palm oil and palm kernels so the British decided to colonise the country (duh) but other examples such as rice , sugar , cotton , tobacco (there is a very long list) .

Another example of U.S. playing the bully.

Both the US and China are flexing their muscles.

This is all following a familiar pattern from the 1930's.

Global economic depression, trade wars, world war...

Every major power in the history of Man has attempted to protect their commercial interest 

Why be fixated on China or the US , any state with clout does the same
