Hard to keep up w/ all hotspots around the world & separate signal from noise. Few observations from last 24 hrs.

TL; DR - Turkey, Russia, Philippines, Louisiana, Texas, Georgia, Florida, Indiana, California should draw our attention.

Testing, Testing, Testing. 1/x
Turkey has grown their cases by 50% in last 48 hours. They are one of the fastest growing (#Covid19) large countries and straddle a geopolitically sensitive region. 2/x

washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/…
#Russia & the #Philippines have suddenly cropped up w/substantial growth & both look to be starting from behind in terms of testing. They are following a familiar pattern and they start out with no particular advantage. And this doesn't help matters. nypost.com/2020/03/31/rus… 3/x

#China launches new facilities in West #Philippines Sea just as world’s eyes are fixed on #coronavirus

2 research stations were recently launched on 2 of China’s man-made islands: Kagitingan (Fiery Cross) & Zamora (Subi) Reef, Xinhua reported on March 20

globalnation.inquirer.net/186253/china-l…
The research facilities, under the Integrated Research Center for Islands & Reefs of the Chinese Academy Sciences, feature a number of labs on ecology, geology & environments.

The bases are envisioned as support facilities for “interdisciplinary research of oceanographers.”
Maritime security expert Collin Koh said the launching of two new research centers by China at this time is a significant development.

“Some may think that the ongoing coronavirus pandemic would have distracted Beijing from these maritime flashpoints,” Koh said.

I would buy defense stocks while they’re cheap.

#China’s economy will suffer as exogenous demand plummets. To maintain full(er) employment, they’re likely to conscript people.

They may even offer to send soldiers to #coronavirus/#COVID19🦠 hot zones as a soft power strategy.
… understand this: #China’s Communist Party sees moments like these as opportunities.

America’s divided political leadership — inc. Congressional Republicans who, like #RushLimbaugh, are apparently smarter than world renowned epidemiologists — leaves us open to be leapfrogged…
… an example: #POTUS #Trump did the smart thing in imposing a #TravelBan on #Europe🇪🇺.

Europe, please impose one on the US, too! We *must* stop non-essential travel.

But while Europeans nursed their hurt feelings, #China promoted THIS👇 story…

1. ELECTION MEDDLING.

The US actually has a whole division of the #CIA dedicated to #ElectionMeddling.
This throws a little water on #Dems Fake outrage.
It’s called SAC or Special Activities center.
@SenSchumer knows this.

3 If that wasn’t enough, within SAC we have SOG, the Special Operations Group.
(Who makes up these names?)
Guess what they do??
Tactical paramilitary operations.

They use brute Force if needed but also Arm and Train rebels.

#Europe is the midst of its #5G decision, with all eyes currently set on Germany. But there is a second crucial theatre for 5G competition that regrettably gets very little attention: #SoutheastAsia. Thread:
Right at China’s doorstep #Huawei has a long history and market share dominance in the strategically important region. Of the ten @ASEAN countries only Singapore & Vietnam have so far opted for Huawei’s competitors. 1/7
For the less affluent #SEA states cost-benefit calculation is central & so far pretty clear: Huawei is cheap & offers leading technology. For them costs are less tangible: Some #SoutheastAsian states rely on #US security. But how will US react to UK decision? Will it at all? 2/7

“What they have agreed upon is that both countries will refrain or avoid performing aggressive, provocative acts that will trigger incidents that have [happened] before,” Panelo said.
Mr. Duterte, who is on a five-day visit here, took up in his meeting with Xi on Thursday night the 2016 ruling by the international arbitral tribunal in The Hague, which favored the Philippines in its maritime dispute with China over the West Philippine Sea.

Thread: #Vietnam shuns #Huawei as it seeks to build Southeast Asia’s first 5G network - It is an outlier in Southeast Asia, where the #Philippines, #Thailand and #Malaysia are open to deploying Huawei technology - An example to others @Aryanwarlord scmp.com/news/asia/sout…
Vietnam is quietly siding with the Trump administration, which has barred Huawei from buying US technology over national security concerns. Vietnam is intent on being the first Asean nation to provide a 5G network – without China’s tech powerhouse Huawei.
Viettel Group, Vietnam’s largest mobile carrier owned by the defence ministry, will deploy Ericsson AB’s equipment in Hanoi and Nokia Oyj’s technology in Ho Chi Minh City, said Viettel chief executive officer Le Dang Dung.

WHEN PEOPLE ARE SMARTER THAN THEIR GOVERNMENT - "Reactive. That's the #Philippines. The Philippines has a government of secretaries walking around with their pants down." JoeAm @societyofhonor wrote it the way it is.... 👍A must read👍
joeam.com/2019/08/12/whe…
You can see Twitter’s value when people know Chinese military ships are plowing through Philippine seas before the Secretary of Defense knows it. Or people realize that Chinese interests have purchased strategic islands before the newspapers pick it up.
It is rare these days to see government taking or announcing proactive steps AHEAD of breaking problems. Reactive. That is the Philippines. The Philippines has a government of secretaries walking around with their pants down.

Thread: #Philippines Carpio slams #China’s 'double standard' in warship passage near Tawi-Tawi - Although the Philippines observes China's right of innocent passage in its waters, China consistently stops Filipinos from patrolling parts of its waters rappler.com/nation/235826-…
A Chinese warship passed through Philippine territorial waters 2-3 weeks ago, said Supreme Court Justice Carpio, adding that it showed China’s "double standard" since it never allows Filipino vessels free passage in waters Beijing claims to be its territory in the WP Sea.
"I got verified information that the Chinese aircraft carrier, has passed through the Sibutu Passage, which is within our archipelagic waters, within our territorial waters,” Carpio told reporters at a forum at the University of the Philippines Diliman on Friday, July 19.

The Philippines and United States are set to review their mutual defense alliance, critically timed deliberations that will have major implications for regional security, including in the South China Sea.
Both allies face new and rising security risks from China’s militarization of the contested sea, moves that could soon tilt towards a balance of power-testing military confrontation for control of the waterway.
