Where did I say trade war shenanigans were a "covert op?"

You put the term "covert-op" in there yourself to create a strawman which shows you don't even know what the word blowback means.

Just because the CIA coined the word, which is in reference to an unintended reaction or consequence to a policy, doesn't mean it refers only to covert-ops. There can be blowback to any govt policy or operation.
Definition of blowback
: an unforeseen and unwanted effect, result, or set of repercussions

You have to be blind to not see that Russia, China and Iran are being pushed toward working things out on their own on trade in response to the economic warfare we've been waging. It could be damaging to us unless something else happens. China has been building relationships including in Africa and their One Belt One Road initiative across Asia where there are traders all along that route. They're not going around the globe blocking trade through sanctions.
