Sounds like the u.s is trying to put pressure on bdesh to join the western axis.
Even if your assumption is current ,still it's not gonna happen I believe . If we must join any bloc , it must be Chinese!
Dr. Yunus has friends in Democrats, Clinton’s chief among them
Tbh , the days are long gone when you can successfully change govt in Bangladesh by lobbying in capitol hill.

Dhaka has protested against US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s remarks linking attacks in Bangladesh to terrorist group al-Qaeda.



Pompeo in a recent statement “falsely” apprehended similar terrorist attacks in future, the foreign ministry said in a statement on Wednesday.
“Such irresponsible comment by a senior leader is very unfortunate and unacceptable,” the ministry statement said.
“Bangladesh strongly rejects this kind of baseless remarks and falsification. There is no evidence of any presence of al-Qaeda in Bangladesh,” it added.
Under the “bold” leadership of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, Bangladesh maintains a “Zero Tolerance” policy against all forms of terrorism and violent extremism, the statement said.
The country has been undertaking “all possible measures” to address the menace.
“Our track record in countering terrorism has earned us global appreciation. In line with our commitment to countering terrorism, we have become a party to all fourteen international counter-terrorism conventions and are actively involved with international ‘preventive’ initiatives to counter terrorism.
“Bangladesh considers that the US Secretary of State’s referring to Bangladesh as a possible location for al-Qaeda operations, is indeed unfounded and offers no evidence,” the foreign ministry said.
If any such claim could be substantiated with evidence, the ministry said, the government would be “happy” to take necessary measures against such activities.
“However, if such a statement is made out of speculation, Bangladesh considers it very unfortunate, especially in the context of the ever-growing bilateral ties between the two friendly countries based on shared values, peace and common goals,” it added.
Bangladesh suffered a series of attacks, including the one on Holey Artisan bakery that left 17 foreign diners and five others killed, in the past few years.
Middle East-based radical groups Islamic State and al-Qaeda claimed responsibilities for some of the attacks.
The law-enforcing agencies and the government have always denied the claims and blamed the attacks on home-grown militant groups, such as Neo-JMB and Ansarullah Bangla Team.

extremist groups are involved .

Well you are partly correct I think. But about US sanction ?

I think soon China is going to replace as super power.

And we all know the fate of Pakistan who was the trusted ally of USA against Soviet Union.

On the other hand China Pakistan alliance is stronger than ever as if I am not wrong it started since 1962 ( or even before?) .

So yes I want us to remain neutral , but what if we have no other way but to join any side ?

Then I want to join Chinese side instead of USA .

Western liberalism is nothing but eye washing. At least China won't play such dirty I believe.

Eh both will play dirty lol , China doesn't have freedom of speech and it controls it's own people by force. America has freedom of speech but in the end doesn't care about anyone else.

Both are superpowers that play dirty , both doesn't care about Bangladesh only care about money and influence.

That's true , and that's the reason I would say China is very careful now. If they betray
like USA betrayed Pakistan ( and other Muslim nation as well ) ,then their ( Chinese) consequence will be the same . In the end for their own interest ,they won't betray us.

Exactly , and we also don't care of they care us or not .

Bangladesh is strategically in very important position for both China and USA during the clash between the two super powers ( same Pakistan was in a good place when USA opponent was Soviet ) , and if we have no other option but to choose one side , then it must be China , as in order to counter Indian aggression , China shall always remain a better option than west, and in order to counter India China also need us .

So in the end , Bangladesh will always play an important role for China if they need to counter India .

And since India is expansionist , so no neighbors can have better relationship with India , you saw even Nepal and Bhutan ( protectorate state of India ) are now in a problematic situation with India .

It's simply because the expansionist nature of India.

And unfortunately Bharat is based on the expansionism , you must know the fate of Hyderabad state and Kashmir.

If Kashmir belong to Pakistan , then only Hyderabad annexation become legitimate , otherwise not. So India can't give up it's expansionist nature , so they can never have good relationship with neighborhood.

And this is the key point , if you choose China , China won't let you down because we ( Indian neighbors) have same interest. ;)
