The @FBI published a wanted poster and an indictment of 4 “Chinese military-backed hackers” for their alleged roles in the 2017 #Cyberattack against credit company @Equifax.

Article by @JoshJPhilipp | (Thread👇)…
The @FBI described the breach as “the largest known theft of personally identifiable information ever carried out by state-sponsored actors.”

Yet, despite the rare exposé of Chinese soldiers, little has been said about the #Hacker unit they were allegedly part of.
The case that most closely resembles this is the May 19, 2014, indictment of 5 Chinese #Military hackers for multiple alleged #Cybercrime acts committed between 2006 and 2014.

They were identified as being part of the #Chinese military, the People’s Liberation Army.

Epidemic impact will be like a #China mini-recession

The #Wuhan virus could spark China’s first recession-like experience. With quarantines depressing consumption, whole industries are at risk of severe hits…
The People’s Republic has weathered emergencies before, including the SARS epidemic in 2002 and the 2008 global financial crisis. In both cases, the country was able to outgrow the impact using state-driven investment.
As Beijing now confronts the coronavirus, its economy is more mature, more indebted and thus more vulnerable. Consumption, not exports, account for the bulk of GDP growth, while yields from infrastructure investment have naturally diminished.

#Canada: #Chinese researcher with ties to #China was escorted from infectious disease lab amid RCMP investigation

Article from last year, but relevant

Dr. Xiangguo Qiu, her husband Keding Cheng and an unknown number of her students from China were removed from Canada's only level-4 lab on July 5, CBC News has learned.
A Level 4 virology facility is a lab equipped to work with the most serious and deadly human and animal diseases. That makes the Arlington Street lab one of only a handful in North America capable of handling pathogens requiring the highest level of containment, such as Ebola.

“The criteria for declaring a public health emergency of international concern have been met,” said Yanzhong Huang, a fellow for global health at the Council on Foreign Relations.

But “not all WHO decisions are made based on the developments in the biological world,” he added.
Under Chinese pressure, WHO also excluded the self-ruled island of Taiwan from the World Health Assembly, and from receiving global health advice for the last three years.

She added that she believed the WHO will come to "deeply regret" the decision not to declare a crisis.

Thread: Virus-hit #Wuhan has 2 laboratories linked to #Chinese bio-warfare program

#coronavirus maybe originated in a Wuhan laboratory linked to #China’s covert biological weapons program, says an #Israeli biological warfare expert 😲😲😲…
The laboratory in Wuhan is the only declared site in China capable of working with deadly viruses.

Dany Shoham, a former Israeli military intelligence officer who has studied Chinese bio warfare, said the institute is linked to Beijing’s covert biological weapons program.
“Certain laboratories in the institute have probably been engaged, in terms of research and development, in Chinese biological weapons, at least collaterally, yet not as a principal facility of the Chinese BW alignment,” Mr. Shoham told The Washington Times.

The @USCensusBureau chose to publicize the upcoming #2020Census to the Asian community by mostly choosing media outlets under the influence of the #Chinese regime, including one that is a registered foreign agent. (Thread👇)…
The Bureau has also chosen not to use two independent #Chinese-language outlets that have been critical of the Chinese regime, even though these outlets have much greater digital reach than those the Bureau has chosen and took part in the advertising of the #2010Census.
China Global Television Network (@CGTNOfficial) was selected as one of the paid media outlets of the #2020Census.

CGTN’s original name was China Central Television (@CCTV), the Chinese #Communist regime’s mouthpiece in television broadcasting. It was re-branded as CGTN in 2016.

1: Some people think these agreements for the #China-#Myanmar Economic Corridor & the deep seaport mean a #Chinese naval base it's coming.

I say NO WAY, the Myanmar people & its military are fiercely opposed to Chinese influence or CN military use there.
2: Myanmar needs economic investments from China due to its isolation from the western world due to the Rohingya conflict, but the Myanmar military (the real power there) is extremely nationalistic & opposed to Chinese designs; they know CN arms the rebel groups.
3: The military had actually opened up in the past & ended the military dictatorship because of increasing Chinese influence. Now they had to step back a bit because of the western induced isolation, but that's all. Other than China, only Japan, India & Thailand invest there,

A thread about how well #China is playing the international game to become the most prominent economy in this decade, by @swardley.
@swardley Some key points about #China's long-run #strategy:

- For the #CPC (Communist Party of China) the #market is only a tool to leverage the power of the Chinese people, culture, and state, and not the holy sacred truth, as most western liberals believe. See @swardley's explanation.
@swardley - #China, through its CPC, acts as the #world's #biggest #buyer of goods & services, and hence, is able to impose its conditions (read law, prices, access to intellectual property, etc) to all multinationals that want to access the Chinese market, no matter how big they are.

.@Mar_Ex & .@BoycottHegemony what my analysis says that the expanding footprint of #CCPChina has progressively made inroads into a maritime area which is beyond not only #Chinese territorial waters but also its EEZ, largely for the two reasons Below :-

.@IndoPac_Info First, the country's rising energy requirements demand that it diversifies its source & the water of #SouthChinaSea are rich in hydrocarbons, oil n gases and much of this is still unexplored along with a sea bed in natural resources. (2/6)
.@Mar_Ex @BoycottHegemony
A greater political reach over this area would enable #CCPChina to draw on the reserves it requires. Second, one of the world's busiest shipping routes, the east-west route, passes through this area. Trade being essential for an economy like #Chinazi #China (3/6)

Qassem Soleimani was killed in an air strike by the #US in #Baghdad. Equivalent to Jiang Zemin in #China, Soleimani was a dominant figure in the military, politics and oil industry of #Iran. Most of his family reside in #HongKong, #Shanghai and #Beijing.
#China’s Bank of Kunlun was established by Soleimani family in collaboration with the #CCP. The actual #Chinese main shareholders are Jiang Zemin, Wang Qishan, Meng Jianzhu (and Zhou Yongkang before jailed). Its asset has increased from $17 billion to $28 billion.

#Hongkonger ‘missing’ after crossing #Chinese checkpoint on mega bridge to #Macau

The man, surnamed Chan, was travelling by bus on Friday from Hong Kong to Macau, his son said.
“His last message said ‘I got arrested’,” the son said.…
The disappearance first emerged on Saturday when the man’s son told local media his father had texted to say he was being detained while passing through an artificial island manned by Chinese police on his way to the semi-autonomous city of Macau.
The artificial island in the middle of the Pearl River Delta lies in Chinese mainland waters.

Mainland police set up a new checkpoint there last week with X-ray machines and facial recognition checks ahead of an upcoming visit to Macau by President Xi Jinping.

#US #China tech war’s new battleground: undersea internet cables

The ambitions of #Chinese tech giants like #Huawei, which have laid thousands of kilometres of cable, are of increasing concern to Washington…
While the US has been upping the pressure on its allies not to include equipment made by Huawei and ZTE in their 5G systems, Chinese companies have gained a foothold in some of the world’s most essential communications infrastructure, undersea internet cables
Almost all global data communications flow through cables under the ocean – just one per cent travels by satellite – and Chinese companies have quietly been eroding US, European and Japanese dominance over the backbone of the internet, the undersea cable market.

#China wants to make protest-free #Macau its next #HongKong - A new stock exchange will be set up there

The push to develop financial infrastructure in Macau is to compensate for market disruptions in Hong Kong that could affect #Chinese businesses…
The idea is not for Macau to replace Hong Kong but for China to have a contingency plan in case the situation in Hong Kong worsens. Two officials who helped develop the Shanghai stock exchange moved to the territory this year to help establish a yuan-based stock exchange.
Macau's new exchange will initially be focused on bond trading to encourage local and Chinese companies to issue debt in the city, according to a Chinese official familiar with the matter.
