So the official statement of the white house is that it doesnt want to "contain" a country actively engaging in systematic genocide? Home of the brave, indeed.

Quran, Sura Rum, 40:
It is Allah Who created you, then bestowed upon you your sustenance, and He will cause you to die and then will bring you back to life. Can any of those whom you associate with Allah in His Divinity! do any such thing? Glory be to Him and exalted be He above whatever they associate with Allah in His Divinity.

China have 5000 years civilization. How many years civilization, US have? Do not use your rules control other nation's. US should only represent Amercians value.

If any nation's did not follow Amercian way, they call them aggressively. I get that Mr. Amercians government. Lol. 99times of 100, this guy keep talking about China than Amercian internal affairs right now. He should understand push down others will not make US great again. You have to work hard and gain better life than others by your skill and ability. This is a Common sense. Okay?
