New Data Point on #Chinese #aluminium

Current Monthly Run-Rate of Chinese Aluminium Production is the highest ever …. Running at 40mnt vs a self imposed name plate Capacity of 45mnt. So despite the DEMAND headwinds, they are raising production (forget abt blue skies)
IMPLYING
More Chinese Aluminium exports will hit the market

About 3mn of Capacity shut in 2021 and is coming online will continue to ramp up. Bear in mind that this is happening despite the Lockdowns

Meanwhile World ex China j continues to Decline. Taken together, it’s ONLY DOWN 1% YY
Let me clarify…
YTD… global Aluminium production is down ONLY 1.1% despite a 11% YoY in Europe.

But April 2022 Annualised, Global AL production is FLAT YoY thanks to the Middle East & China (Forget abt blue skies)

Our latest: In this essay, @Akbar_notezai & I study d recent attacks on #Chinese installments inside & outside #Balochistan & a dramatic shift in #BLA’s operational tactics with a brief profile of #ShariBaloch. Thanks, @iAdnanAamir, 4 ur insights. #CPEC

@Akbar_notezai @iAdnanAamir "The use of women suicide bombers may lead to divided opinions. Whether it proves to be a sign of BLA desperation or strength and whether the Majeed Brigade will keep employing new tactics combined with old ones to cause maximum fatalities remains to be seen."
- @Akbar_notezai's brilliant analysis! "With Pakistan’s greater economic dependence on #China as its economy is on a ventilator, a stronger military crackdown inside & outside #Balochistan could be the first move Islamabad takes 2 protect its all-weather friendship with Beijing."

2 suspected #Chinese powerboats, similar to super ‘go-fasts’ used by drug smugglers in Spain, seen 0950-1100 May 19 lurking at Nan'aokou, Taiwan. The crew on the boat are wearing hoods, no fishing behavior. Might be maritime militia? Might be smugglers #OSINT ImageImageImageImage
My first thought is car smuggling, which used to be a thing in #China. But is it still relevant?

The #communist Far Left is poised to take over the reins of power in #Russia. If you thought #RussiaUkraineWar would lead to a Russian coup by the "liberal" forces, i.e. by the likes of @navalny or Khodorkovsky, you're wrong - and I will try to explain why in this 🧵... [1]
The moment that really started the #RussiaUkraineWar happened as early as 19 January, when the Communist Party of #Russia (@kprf) sent a request to recognize the breakaway #Donbass republics (LDPRs). This move was only reported in Russian language. [2]
rbc.ru/politics/19/01…
It wasn't Putin's "United Russia" party that kicked-off the military intervention in #Ukraine, it was the Russian communists - a political descendant of the all-powerful CPSU in the Soviet Union. This was largely ignored by the Western media... [3]

1/ Could the #LME #nickel fiasco happen to the #Comex #gold and #silver market?

On my recent Twitter Spaces with @PalisadesRadio I mentioned that we may have a problem with current and future availability of gold and silver bars from the expanded refiner list.

Please retweet!
2/ Back in 2020, the #CME expanded the list of approved refineries whose bars are eligible for good delivery to the Comex. This was due to overwhelming demand for physical product and to maintain an orderly market. bullionstar.com/blogs/ronan-ma…
3/ 51 #LBMA approved gold refineries had been added to the eligible brand list for the COMEX 100 (GC 100) gold futures contract. Of the 51 refiner brands, the top countries represented are 12 refineries from China and 7 from Russia.

Some thoughts on the BLA attack in #Karachi University [Thread]

No doubt, the #Baloch insurgency has been redefining itself since 2011. What is surprising is how Baloch separatists, many of whom define themselves as secular nationalists, have now started following the same
strategy that has been used by hardcore Islamists such as #Bokoharam in Nigeria, Islamic State (#ISIS) in Iraq and Syria, Al Qaeda, and #Taliban in #Afghanistan. Use of women as suicide bombers.
This is the fifth rebellion in #Balochistan, and the current one is the longest, which broke out in early 2000. Still, it’s the first time the separatist GROUP #BLA has used a female suicide bomber to attack #Chinese nationals in #Karachi. There are many reasons.

As per some reports, a #Chinese professor is among those killed in today’s blast near Karachi university. The blast occurred outside Confucius institute, #Karachi university. Four are dead. In July 2021, 12, including 9 Chinese nationals were killed in a blast inside a mini-bus.
“It seems to be a suicide attack targeting #Chinese nationals. Apparently, a burqa clad woman carried out the suicide attack,” reports Geo news. Geo reported that the blast killed 2 foreign women and critically injured 3. #Karachi
Three #Chinese nationals killed in an “apparent” suicide bombing targeting Chinese nationals in #Karachi. Two women, and a man are among the dead.

My fifth paper for @GI_TOC has just gone live!

Over eight months, we catalogued 425 weapons and over 3,200 rounds of ammunition in 13 illicit markets across #Somalia.

(thread)

globalinitiative.net/analysis/somal…
The research showed that assault rifles were priced approx. $90 higher in southern Somalia than in the north.

The pricing data constitutes tentative corroborating evidence of a north-south illicit supply chain, with weapons becoming more expensive the further south they travel. Image
Over 60% of documented weapons were of apparent #Chinese manufacture, with an additional ~20% manufactured in #Russia (Soviet Union). Image

*How #SriLanka got ruined*

Lankans voted for #Rajapakshas knowing very well what they did in the past, including corruption, selling out national assets to #China, #dynastic politics and all.

They still voted for them because Rajapakshas promised things they could not refuse.
1. Their #GST, called VAT Tax, on all products was reduced to 8%, thus making everything cheaper in one stroke. (It also killed the govt revenue). People loved things getting cheaper.
2. The minimum #incometax threshold was changed from 5 Lakhs per annum to 30 Lakhs! Very few earned more than 30L!
A very large part of the population became #tax exempt. This was very popular among the salaried class.

#china proposes
1) #India China Civilizational dialogue .
2) #India #China trade & investment forum
3) India China film forum .
#Chinese want #NarendraModi to visit #Beijing for BRICS in 2022 alongwith a trilateral between #XiJinping #Putin & #ModiJi

indianexpress.com/article/india/…
Imho while Civilizational dialogue, investment & film forums can proceed #narendramodiji should only share space with #XiJinping after Chinese pull back forces beyond finger 8 & return to status quo ante as in 2019.
That should be our minimum condition .
The Chinese foreign policy towards India has hitherto always been conceptualized ,finalised & implemented not by the Beijing MOFA but the PLA. We have a unique situation now with #XiJinping being the first president to directly command the PLA since #MaoZedong .

The "Integrated country strategy" with #SriLanka will likely be our template for #BharatVarsh as a union of #Indic civilization.
Interesting to note that instead of imposing ourselves we've let the #SriLanka govt outline the details of the integration process on their terms.
A detailed description of what they're looking at below . In essence seems to be much like a federation of union of states .Better for the people of both nations .
Russia went straight to Dand .
We try to stay between Saam & Daam use Bhedh if necessary as a measure of Dand .

🔴 LIVE: Our panel on 🇨🇳 #China's role in the #Russia-#Ukraine war + implications for #Taiwan is now underway. Sr. Fellow Jeremy Paltiel @cu_polisci on the current crisis: "The Chinese position has been to remain even-handed, with a tilt—not a lean—towards #Russia." 1/x 🧵
Jeremy Paltiel @cu_polisci: "It's an awkward moment because the five principles of peaceful co-existence... those have been a cornerstone of #Chinese diplomacy basically since its founding and towards the Global South... equivocation on basic principles may have some cost." 2/x
On Sino-Russian military cooperation, @lylegoldstein @defpriorities says China's armed forces have "very critical Russian roots in every respect" that continue today. "I would not be shocked if help [on #Ukraine] would be forthcoming" to get a foot in the Russian arms market. 3/x

The #US side said it's in full compliance with its obligations under the Chemical Weapons Convention and the Biological Weapons Convention and does not develop or possess such weapons.
Then why has it single-handedly impeded the conclusion of a #BWC verification protocol for 20 years? Why has it remained silent at the calls to open its bio-labs around the world and #FortDerrick to independent international investigations? What's the secret they are hiding?
As a #Chinese saying goes, "the more concealed, the more conspicuous". The #US should give the world a very clear, honest and straightforward answer.

This was me years ago when I was traveling in India, notice the "save Tibet" shirt with snow lion flag? I got it in Bylakuppe which is the second largest exile-Tibetan settlement in India. Yeah, I used to be a anti-CCP lib who stood up against CCP's "oppression" in #Tibet.😂 &1 ImageImage
In short, I was brainwashed by anti-#China media and "overseas #Chinese democracy activists". I had exposed to tons of videos, articles about Tiananmen square protests and "human rights abuses in Tibet". I had also read Dalai Lama's biographies and firmly believed that Tibet &2
should've been freed from the CCP. Although I had been to Tibet, I had seen people's living conditions were relatively well and I had seen the extraordinary Qinghai-Tibet railway. That said, another voice in mind constantly reminded me that "they need freedom and democracy". &3
