Internet says that Jinping Xi is having a little brain surgery. Biden style.

I like how dictators, especially commies but also some others, like to flee to capitalist or Western countries when they need serious surgery or medical treatment. Why doesn't Xi just take some more bear-paw powder, endangered rhino dust, and some plasma, or fresh organs, taken during vivisection from a Christian, Muslim, or Falung-Gong prisoner with his nice, hot live-bat soup? Like Chinese Grandma say: "Live bat soup heals all, but better take rare animal paste and human organs. Feed a cold but starve a prisoner and use their organs."

appeasing the Chinese Communist Party

This has been going on today, with NZ trying to do damage control now:

New Zealand Trade Minister advises Australia to show China more 'respect'
QuoteIn an interview discussing the deal, New Zealand's Trade Minister Damien O'Connor was asked about a suggestion from their Foreign Minister Nanaia Mahuta that the nation could mediate between Australia and China.

Mr O'Connor said New Zealand had a "mature" relationship with China and could raise issues of concern, but added it also respected its trade ties with Beijing. "If [Australia] were to follow us and show respect, I guess a little more diplomacy from time to time and be cautious with wording, they too could hopefully be in a similar situation [with China]," he said.

[...]

One Australian government source said Mr O'Connor's comments had "not gone down well" in Canberra. "What [New Zealand] has to realise is that China is intent on splitting alliances in the region, and jumping in like this plays into their hands," they said. The Federal Government expressed concerns to New Zealand after Nanaia Mahuta made the mediation offer, and the New Zealand government has since been trying to play down the significance of the suggestion.

New Zealand was conspicuously absent from a statement issued by the other Five Eyes countries â€" Australia, the US, the UK and Canada â€" condemning the arrest of democracy advocates in Hong Kong.

Hopefully Beijing has acquired some precious DNA and are working on growing a Rubini army.

Sucking up to potentially hostile nations is probably a good idea for an isolated nation with no air defense.

Other side of the world, Doc. We still have some security alliances with them but when they went "no nukes" officially no longer ANZUS with regard to mutual security, I think. Basically they wouldn't let some of our ships dock because nukes and so we said ok we don't need to protect you in the event.  I don't know where it stands now.

Of course. How silly of me but I really though that they were part of some sort of strategic alliance between other so-called Western “democracies.”

Yeah. They want out of the English speaking nations club.

Not by spiting their closest ally and neighbour.


So the President of Burma has been overthrown in a coup and arrested just now:

China has been mucking around with arming rebels there for some time now.

Something to watch in the coming days.

Canadian Embassy Worker's T-Shirt Sparks Dispute With China
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2021-02-03/china-lodges-formal-complaint-with-canada-over-a-t-shirt/13114944

QuoteThe incident arose after a T-shirt maker posted online that a staff member from the Canadian embassy had ordered T-shirts with a bat print. That appeared to reference a theory about the origin of coronavirus â€" that it spread from a bat to a human in the Chinese city of Wuhan, where infections were first reported in late 2019.
But Canadian media reported the logo was a W in homage to the New York hip hop group Wu-Tang Clan â€" not the city of Wuhan.

Ottawa had apologised for any misunderstanding, it was reported.




Chinese talking trash. Saying they can track our Ohio class SSBN's from space and kill them with some magic missile. Meanwhile they are ramping up their sub production.
