So look, basically, the US collapsed its own economy on purpose for some reason and now they’re instigating riots against themselves for some reason.
China is now the de facto center of global power, and there’s some question as to how much the US is going to be able to keep threatening them.
China has already started making moves to clean up the stupid mess created by the US State Department in Hong Kong, and it is likely you’re going to see them make a bunch of quick moves in rapid succession to clean house on the homefront before establishing themselves as the dominant world power.
China said Friday they’re thinking about just sending the military in to put down the 70 years long rebellion in Taiwan.
China will attack Taiwan if there is no other way of stopping it from becoming independent, one of the country’s most senior generals said on Friday, in a rhetorical escalation from China aimed at the democratic island Beijing claims as its own.
Speaking at Beijing’s Great Hall of the People on the 15th anniversary of the Anti-Secession Law, Li Zuocheng, chief of the Joint Staff Department and member of the Central Military Commission, left the door open to using force.
The 2005 law gives the country the legal basis for military action against Taiwan if it secedes or seems about to, making the narrow Taiwan Strait a potential military flashpoint.
“If the possibility for peaceful reunification is lost, the people’s armed forces will, with the whole nation, including the people of Taiwan, take all necessary steps to resolutely smash any separatist plots or actions,” Li said.
“We do not promise to abandon the use of force, and reserve the option to take all necessary measures, to stabilise and control the situation in the Taiwan Strait,” he added.
Then in the last 24 hours we’ve seen US planes doing whatever over there.
Two B-1B bombers and two support tankers were spotted flying from Guam and nearing northeast Taiwan on Sunday (May 31).
On Sunday (May 31), Twitter user Golf9, who specializes in airband monitoring, radar spotting, and aircraft spotting, reported that two B-1B Lancers and two Boeing KC-135 Stratotankers had taken off from Andersen Air Force Base in Guam and flown into the East China Sea near the northeast corner of Taiwan. Taiwanese and Chinese authorities have yet to issue an official response to the patrol.
After refueling the bombers, the two tankers headed back to base in Guam. Meanwhile, the two Lancers turned northeast, flying over the Northern Pacific on a flightpath bound for Alaska.
The flights were the first since President Trump announced Friday (May 29) that the U.S. is ending Hong Kong’s special trade status in response to China’s new draconian security law directed at the territory. He also announced the U.S. withdrawal from the WHO, new restrictions on Chinese nationals affiliated with the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) studying in the U.S., and an investigation into Chinese companies listed on U.S. financial markets.
Trump gave a stupid speech last week about how he supports the Antifa rioters in Hong Kong and how he’ll punish China if they stop them from burning everything down.
But that doesn’t really seem to have done anything.
Hong Kong stocks are on pace for their best day since March as investors shrug off the Trump administration’s intention to end a special economic and trading relationship with the Asian financial hub. There are also signs in the region that China’s economy is continuing to recover from the worst of the coronavirus pandemic — though activity elsewhere in Asia remains grim.
Hong Kong’s Hang Seng Index (HSI) rose more than 3%. It was the first opportunity investors there had to react to US President Donald Trump’s announcement last week that Washington would “begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment” from mainland China.
Trump’s response marked an escalation in tensions between the United States and China — the President blasted Beijing for approving a national security law that fundamentally undermines Hong Kong’s autonomy.
Finally, China is moving weapons to the border of India and bragging about it.
China’s People’s Liberation Army (PLA) has expanded its specialised high-altitude arsenal of weapons since the 2017 Doklam standoff with India to prepare for future conflicts, a piece in China’s state run Global Times said.
The article posted on Sunday listed an advanced list of weaponry including tanks, helicopters and drones, which it said “should give China the advantage in high-altitude conflicts should they arise.”
The timing of the article is interesting given that tensions have been running high between the two countries because of border skirmishes along undemarcated Line of Actual Control (LAC) in the high-altitude Ladakh region.
“Since the Doklam standoff with India in 2017, the Chinese military has expanded its arsenal with weapons like the Type 15 tank, Z-20 helicopter and GJ-2 drone that should give China the advantage in high-altitude conflicts should they arise,” the Global Times article said.
I don’t think they’re going to have a war with India. They might just give them a black eye so they understand who’s boss.
These are very rapid changes in the global landscape, emerging from the decision by the US government to completely collapse its economy in the name of a flu hoax.
It kind of just is what it is, which is whatever.
In theory, the world would be a lot more peaceful if it was run by China instead of the Zionist Jews that control the US foreign policy machine.
However, I don’t really know if I believe that we’ve seen the last of those Jews. I think it is very likely that the US is going to start a war with China in the coming months.
