My dear friend, I have found the two articles in nine seconds. Do I need to inform you about such trivial things beforehand? I won't tell you something that is not interesting. Instead, I choose to tell you things that are more interesting. Have Eisenhower and his successors made full use of the interstate highway system to "conquer the world" like China, as claimed by the poster of this thread? From the alarm raised in this thread over China's OBOR, the answer is definitely "No". It looks like China's OBOR is an improved version of America's interstate highway system. Instead of building an interstate highway, China and the participating states in the project are building an interstate railway. N.B. By the way, America cannot sue China for patent infringement because Eisenhower did not register the global patent for his interstate highway system. What's the problem with China's OBOR after all? Let's use this analogy. Suppose you find your neighbour suddenly set aside a few hours daily for powerlifting training, why should you be alarmed and worried that he will not only become stronger than you but may also become the strongest man in the neighbourhood. Of course, there is no reason for you to be alarmed or worried. Because you can also go for the same daily muscle-building routine to become as strong as your neighbour, if not stronger. Similarly, there is no reason why any country including the US should be alarmed by China's OBOR. The US has all the freedom in the world to outperform China's OBOR. Nobody can prevent the US from "conquering the world" with its own version of OBOR or any other means. That's why I propose a version of OBOR for Uncle Sam called OTOT (One Tie, One Trail) to counter China's OBOR (One Belt, One Road). Let's see any wise US presidential candidate will adopt my idea in the future. Instead of trying to outperform China with its version of OBOR, Uncle Sam chooses to withdraw into his own shell. Worst of all, instead of going out for more sunshine and fresh air, Uncle Sam is imprisoning himself by building a great wall.
