#1 Beijing's ruthless leaders subjugate armies of foreign workers with opium, plunder resources across the globe - and now they've got Britain in their sights

China, opium, Britain. A certain historical karma there.

#3 China, opium, Britain. A certain historical karma there.

They also blame the United States. they believe there's plenty of bad karma to make all of us pay for.

And ignore and/or censor their role as pushers to non-Han populations (for example, Tibet, Yunnan, and Sichuan). They did it in the 19th century while they were simultaneously complaining about British predations.

#4 China, opium, Britain. A certain historical karma there.

That opium thing wasn't some kind of British original sin. Opium had been consumed in China since the Tang dynasty in the 9th century. The reason the Chinese government tried to ban imports was because it affected the Chinese trade balance negatively. Within a few decades of the Anglo-Chinese Wars, China was growing all of its own opium, using the improved breeds previously imported as end product from India. Opium wasn't even banned in the West until roughly the time of Prohibition, so it's not like Britain saw it as some kind of poison during the wars with China.
