"China will step up support for other developing countries in developing green and low-carbon energy, and will not build new coal fired projects abroad" President #Xi

What does the future hold for Pakistan's energy sector, the majority of which is on coal fired projects? #CPEC
Needless to say, it seems a little unfair to be entirely against the coal fired projects operating under #CPEC, as energy was Pakistan's dire need at the time, which would not have been fulfilled using renewable energy sources alone.
The #CPEC coal projects also reflect on diversifying Pakistan's energy generation away from fuel oil towards coal, to decrease generation cost and conserve foreign exchange.

The true horror of this prime contender for a UK V-passport would make even an Orwell gasp.

Remote scanning. geolocation & tracking. Constant monitoring of contacts. Geofencing to erect an invisible prison around you. Push notices demanding vaxx/test updates...

This leering technoloon is already in talks to help realise the #BillGates/#Rockefeller/#KlausSchwab dream of the whole global population being tagged; their faces, interactions, possessions, finances, movements intrusively monitored. #SkyNet, indeed.

#Hypothesis: Agreement to disengage in Pangong lake was reached in Sept-oct, but #CCP11 backtracked in Oct/nov on expectation of Biden win! Blinken's 6th Feb call to Yang Xi confirmed firm US policy towards China. #Xi gave approval for implantation of Pangong agreement thereafter

1. China thread -
China conducting biological tests to create super soldiers, US spy chief says theguardian.com/world/2020/dec… #Supersoldiers
2. It must be noted that the the US also makes supersoldiers under Monarch mind control programme and MK Ultra - the likes of Mengele, John Brennan, Aquino involved, but I will keep this thread on China, a mish mash of China articles, just to keep them together for research.

“Remembering the lewd chatter around the dinner table every night, I felt for the first time that the system I had long considered sacred was in fact unbearably absurd.”

“My experience with the study outline taught me that the ideas the party sanctimoniously promoted were in fact self-serving tools used to deceive the Chinese people.

I soon learned that they were also a way of making money.”

“CCP had >3.6 million grassroots organizations, each of which was expected to buy a copy of a new publication. If the book was priced at ten yuan per copy, that meant a minimum of 36 million yuan in sales revenue—equivalent to more than $5 million today.”

“even many of its supporters have been frustrated by the [World Health] organization’s secrecy, its public praise for China and its quiet concessions. Those decisions have indirectly helped Beijing to whitewash its early failures in handling the outbreak.” nytimes.com/2020/11/02/wor…

"It's the #Party #Sector, stupid" The shift 👇🏼is from autonomy of #PartyCapitalists with respect to everyday decisions & depend on self control to implement #CCP's goals, to explicit monitoring of key parameters like obedience of the #Party #Capitalist to #Xi's directives!🧐
2/cps #CCPchinaInc (2)Th freedom to decide what % of profits to take for personal use by party capitalist viz for party goals including maximization of growth &/or employment is being controlled more actively since 2014, and more desperately since collapse of growth & profits

If #Merkel doesn't touch #Nordstream arrangements it means she has the rest of Europe behind her in a Russia appeasement policy effectively establishing anything east of the Oder as a buffer zone, #Belarus being one of the countries.(2/7)
As much as the US administration has signaled that there is a "Northern EU strategy", involving the #UK, Scandinavian/Baltic countries and #Poland, a Russophile Germany would undermine supply route security, and #France's standing in life is grounded in antiamericanism. (3/7)

Opposite responses from Paris and Beijing to last week's #malicoup

underscore the risks #China accepted in the last decade

to supplant France as "most-favored" superpower in West Africa

and gain access to minerals, chemicals and metals that drive econ and military

1/
With the exception of Sierra Leone, Ghana, and Nigeria,

France has been part of the West African community for >100yrs

spreading lingua franca from Dakar to N'Djamena

and creating economies supported by the #French Franc which has proven valuable in post-colonial AF

2/
#Beijing undervalued the bonds that had developed between Paris and many West African countries following the end of colonialism

which included programs to assist members of former French colonies to apply for French citizenship.

"We will fight with what we have," can be costly in lives, when 2 land-obsessed, nuclear armed aggressors are colluding against us (for 50 yrs)! And it's difficult to indigenize when a stronger power is knocking down 1s door. We need both higher defence budget & an ally for 20yrs
2/xi The old story of the boy who cried #wolf will have to be inverted. In new story guards("experts") kept seeing wolf in distance, but didn't warn villagers, thinking its too far to worry. Villagers kept farming peacefully, till the wolf suddenly came & attacked children grp
3/Xi And we no longer have the luxury of time for gradual econ rfrm. We need #BigBang reform in FY21 to liberate a million entrepreneurs & attract Global #ValueChains to accelerate "catch-up growth". This will also generate revenues for Defence & encourage our partners'(economy)

Surely every serious national security strategist understands the distinction btwn Govts Geopolitical decisions and th military's detailed scenario planning & action program. A govt can decided on basis of expected value of outcome or worst case scenarios-the latter is paralyzing
2/ns The critical issue in China-India conflict is that,as of now (2020), #China controls the #escalatory ladder. So India's #National #Security Apparatus has to make assumptions about when and how #CCPpla will escalate, if it loses the first few steps on its escalatory ladder!
3/ns The worst case scenario for us is therefore the one in which after loosing previous escalations, #CCP China escalates to a full fledged war/attack on India, by shifting US-facing troops and highest quality equipment towards India. This has proved paralyzing for past Govts!🤔

Almost everyone expected #China to reach econ and military superpower status within our lifetime.

But this is now in serious question due to President Xi’s misjudgement and mismanagement.

My piece in the @TheNatlInterest

Short thread 1/10

nationalinterest.org/blog/buzz/how-…
Unlike previous CCP leaders, President Xi views Chinese history and future trajectory from a Han-nationalist perspective. Success is “payback” for two centuries of “humiliation”. China must not just win the global geo-political game but must “assert” itself. 2/10
EG:
1. Belt-and-Road initiative whereby China would build the trade infrastructure to serve the next century is degenerated into a crude mechanism of “debt diplomacy” complete with demands for territorial concessions. 3/10

Prove 💣 di @AP: il 14 gennaio, mentre China #CDC e @WHO dichiarano che non ci sono prove chiare di trasmissione #COVID19 da umano a umano, #Pechino lo riconosceva in una riunione interna! apnews.com/68a9e1b91de4ff… @GiulioTerzi @GlobalCRL
Lo stesso giorno in cui ChinaCDC e OMS dichiarano pubblicamente che non c’è "nessuna prova chiara" della trasmissione tra umani, documenti interni riportano una teleconferenza del governo centrale🇨🇳con istruzioni di #Xi sull'epidemia e riconoscendo la probabile trasmissione H2H.
Alcuni dettagli sono stati precedentemente riportati, ma il memo cattura le preoccupazioni "sobrie" dei funzionari centrali, riguardo ai rischi e alle considerazioni politiche interne. Parte fondamentale:
