Q: China is potential danger no. 1?
A: Potential threat no. 1, shall we say.
1998. Def Min Fernandes: there's reluctance to face the reality that China’s intentions need to be questioned..
Q: What is this reluctance due to?
A: ..primarily rooted in having to face the challenges which accepting this situation or this reality will kind of confront u with 2/ Image

Major events that led to 1962 Indo-China war(1/n)

1. In 1947, #India and Pakistan are formed. In 1949, Communist China win Civil war. Communists form People's Republic of China(PRC) - #China and Nationalists form Republic of China(ROC) - Taiwan. Image
2. Following this in 1950, Chacha rejects a permanent seat offered to India in the UN Security Council by US. It was assumed that India replacing China in UNSC would offend both PRC and USSR. India favours China. China becomes permanent UNSC member.
3. 1n 1950, China shows interest in acquiring Tibet(Led by Spiritual/Political leader, The Dalai Lama 14th). Chacha refused to think of the idea of using military force to deter the Chinese. No support given to Tibet. India sides with China.

Relatório interno da OMS indica que a #China escondeu que o #coronavírus poderia ser transmitido entre humanos por mais de duas semanas.

#Pequim decodificou o vírus em 2 de janeiro, mas só alertou sobre a transmissão no dia 20.…
O presidente dos #EUA, Donald Trump, vem apontando há meses que a OMS e a #China forneceram orientações equivocadas desde o início da pandemia do novo #coronavírus.

Confira no YouTube:
No início de abril, Trump alertou:

“A OMS realmente estragou tudo. [...] Muito centrada na China. Felizmente, rejeitei o conselho deles de manter nossas fronteiras abertas à China desde o início. Por que eles nos deram uma recomendação tão defeituosa?”…

1. The past week hasn’t been easy. “The fires of frustration and discord,” once again, “are burning in every city, North and South.” As a Hong Konger deeply disturbed by the death of #GeorgeFloyd in #Minnesota, I stand with those who march for #BlackLivesMatter.
2. Systematic racism in the U.S. is real. The present moment has deep historical roots stretching back to before the country’s founding. I can only try my best to empathize with the pain this has inflicted on so many, even as I’ll never fully understand the plight.
3. For those of us watching the events unfold, scenes of confrontation and bloodshed can be traumatic: State violence feels all too familiar ever since the anti-extradition demonstrations broke out around this time last year in #HongKong.

BTW.... this right here is exactly what these leftists want.

They aren’t hiding their intentions.
I also wonder if McMuffin has any business with #China.
China is pissed at Trump, especially after he ended their special status. He ended it because of how China was treating the Hong Kong protesters.

You can bet China’s doing all they can to stoke tensions, and maybe even pay people to riot here.

The former head of #China's grain storage facilities, Jianjun Qiao (I've also seen it written as Qiao Jianjun), was extradited to the US to face #MoneyLaundering and immigration fraud charges.
Looks like Sweden arrested him last year at the US' request.

He's also wanted in Beijing.…
While grain director from 1998 to 2011, he laundered millions of stolen money & used some of the money to buy properties in Los Angeles and laundered money through banks in China, Singapore, and Hong Kong.

THREAD about some of the #economic/#technology chatter we’re hearing from the media/public/govt while the #China-#India boundary situation has been playing out 1/
For one, there are once again calls in India to boycott Chinese products (seen these before, including during Doklam) with hashtags like #boycottmadeinchina, #boycottchina and #boycottchinesegoods. Also saw these recently when COVID-related anti-China sentiment was peaking 2/
The boycott calls have been spurred to some extent by Sonam Wangchuk (inspiration for Aamir Khan’s character in 3 Idiots), who has called for a #GrabYourWallet response by Indians. Some “influencers” have since claimed they have deleted Chinese apps 3/…

A new thread on another #hydroxychloroquine study in a major medical journal from the same study group as posted in @TheLancet and for which the data has been shown to be impossible.

This time the @NEJM

Hold on to your hats
You need to have a bit of statistics background to understand this. It's all about the variance. When you have different groups they vary. The more numbers you have in each group, the less the variance (proportionally).

Different groups would never have the same variance
Except in this study!

Not only do all these age groups have the same variance in this chart, but what *should* happen is that very small groups would have big variance (confidence intervals on this chart).

Well, it appears there are a lot of hypertensive teens with #covid19 Image

#China warning: #Britain prepares to back #Taiwan & DEFEND it against #Beijing aggression

EXCLUSIVE: DISCUSSIONS are taking place for the UK to increase its support & recognition for Taiwan as tensions mount with China

Wow, this needs confirmation.......…
The Sunday Express has learnt that ministers are considering how to support Taiwan more & could defy Beijing & formally recognise it within five years.

A source said “don’t be surprised if we end up recognising Taiwan & joining others in defending it with military assets.”
As the coronavirus fallout continues with China there is increasing anger over how the Communist regime has treated Hong Kong and is now threatening Taiwan.

Moves to support Taiwan have been welcomed by senior Tories.

The Roots of #Antifa:

The extremist anarchist-communist group was initially part of the #SovietUnion’s front operations to bring about #Communist dictatorship in #Germany, and it worked to label all rival parties as “fascist.” (Thread👇)…

#USA #China #HongKong #riots2020 #GeorgeFloydProtests #HongKongProtests

In the dispute over the future of Hong Kong, Chinese state media used the riots in the USA to criticize Washington at the weekend. "The head of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi,
once described the violent protests in Hong Kong as a" beautiful sight "- now US politicians can enjoy this sight from their own windows," wrote the editor-in-chief of the Chinese state-run tabloid "Global." Times, "Hu Xijin. (Source…)
It is as if "the radical rioters had somehow sneaked into the US and created a mess like last year," wrote Hu, referring to the protesters in Hong Kong who have been fighting against the influence in the Chinese Special Administrative Region since June last year

Relação 🇧🇷🇨🇳

O Governo Bolsonaro é marcado por diversos conflitos com parceiros importantes para o país, entretanto o alvo mais constante é a China.
Para entender mais sobre a histórica relação do nosso país com a 2ª maior economia do planeta, siga o🧶 Image
Para entender essa relação, precisamos voltar ao ano de 1942, ano em que o Brasil e a China iniciaram suas relações diplomáticas. Entretanto, já em 1949, o país rompe relações com o gigante asiático em virtude da Revolução Chinesa, que implementou o Comunismo na China continental
Em um contexto já de Guerra Fria, o Brasil, alinhado aos EUA, passa a reconhecer o governo deposto refugiado em Taiwan mantendo então relações com a China insular (capitalista). Inclusive, há uma abertura de embaixada brasileira em Taiwan Image

Some of the electronic devices were temporarily detained by law enforcement officers for further inspection. Please take the flight personnel to understand the US entry and exit regulations and improve self-protection awareness to avoid inconvenience"

#Chinese troops asphalting a track in disputed ‘finger’ area in #Ladakh amid border tensions

The fresh Chinese construction activity is happening in Finger 4 in Pangong lake area. China also blocked the route of Indian patrols there

This isn't good......…
Chinese soldiers are busy blacktopping (asphalting) a track in the disputed ‘finger’ area of Pangong lake in Ladakh after blocking the path of Indian patrols with a new bunker, 2 bulldozers & a moat-like construction.

Blacktopping is the final stage of building a motorable road.
The 134 km of Pangong lake’s northern bank juts out like a palm & the various protrusions are identified as “fingers” to demarcate territory. While India asserts that the LAC (Line of Actual Control) starts at Finger 8, China claims it starts at Finger 2, which India dominates.

Modern politicians match Talleyrand’s jibe that “The Bourbons have forgotten nothing and learned nothing”
Having needlessly crashed the economy, they now presume to rescue it with New Deals, Bridges-to-Nowhere, #Green boondoggles & ‘shovel-ready’ jobs.
So, let’s repeat the errors of the 30s; let’s kowtow to the #Climate lobby; let’s ignore #Japan’s three decades of ‘infrastructure’ failure (#China’s more recent efforts, too); and, risibly, let’s echo #Obama’s corrupted & ineffective ‘shovel-ready’ nonsense of 2008.
If the word’s “collective effort” do not strike fear into your heart and the bland appeal to a “post-#COVID” world do not dismay you, you are sleep-walking through the camp gates - behind whose thin overlay of mock-Pugin wallpaper lies the usual tangle of barbed wire.

Has #IndianArmy Chief Gen MM Naravane able to contain #PLA on first stage of 'War Zone Campaign Doctrine' of #China ie dominance-cum-deterence by mirror-deployment, a research paper he had written in 'Scholar-Warrior' journal in 2012 as faculty-member of War-College, Mhow
Second stage of this Chinese doctrine 'Gaining Initiatives by Striking First' seems havnt arrived as India's large mechanised forces already deployed at #LadakhBorder

Third stage, 'Quick Battle, Quick Resolution' also wont come due to cold-start doctrine Indian soldiers are always battle-ready be in high-altitudes or cold-deserts, so there has been murmuring of talks to resolve bilateral issues

#THREAD: #Taiwan Wants Land-Based Harpoon Anti-Ship Missiles To Counter Growing #Chinese Naval Power

The announcement comes as both of #China's aircraft carriers may be preparing to work together in a first-of-its-kind exercise.…
Taiwanese authorities say that they are looking to buy ground-launched Harpoon anti-ship missiles & mobile launchers to augment the island's coastal defenses.

Defense Minister Chang Che Ping informed lawmakers about the plans during a committee meeting on May 28, 2020.
Chang did not say what type of Harpoons the Taiwanese military was looking to buy for the coastal defense role. Previous reports had indicated that the missiles would likely be Block II variants.

Taiwan's Air Force already has air-launched Block II AGM-84L Harpoons

Here's the most important part of @realDonaldTrump speech on #HongKong and #China:

"China claims it is protecting national security. But the truth is Hong Kong was secrure and prosperous as a free society. Beijing decision reverses all of that.
It extends the reach of Chinas invasive state secutiry apparatus into what was formerly a bastion of liberty. Chinas latest incursion along with other recent developments that degraded the territories freedoms makes clear that HK is no longer sufficiently autonomous to warrant...
the special freedoms that we have afforded the territory since the handover. China has replaced its promised formula of 1C2S to 1C1S. Therefore I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give HK different and special treatments.
