Gwadar Hotel Attack Was About OBOR!

Separatist Insurgence Vow To Target More Chinese Investments

With economic corridor’s viability on the line, Beijing searches for an answer to Pakistan terrorism

@MischaEDM⁩ ⁦@DTinLosAngeles@Avery1776…
5 Pakistanis were killed on May 11 when gunmen stormed the Zaver Pearl Continental Hotel.

Last month, 14 People were killed by terrorists while heading from Gwadar along the Makran Coastal Highway.

Both attacks were claimed to be the work of the Baloch Liberation Army.
The group’s official spokesman threatened “even harsher” attacks & demanded China withdraw from projects in Balochistan, where insurgents have fought for years for independence & control of resources.

1/ The President of the United States is systematically dismantling all the institutions we built after WWII to maintain the world order we created.

2/ #NATO, the UN, the WTO, the IMF, World Bank, and our trade agreements are mechanisms for us to have a say in what other countries do. They are tools of our power but they come at a cost.

We cannot just do whatever we want without consulting others and in some cases it costs $
3/ Our modern #empire is dependent upon the US Dollar and US military power. First let's talk about the $USD.

By FAR our most powerful tool, it is based on our political and economic stability. While even DJT can't destroy our economy, he is straining our political stability.

Silhouette Louis XV Di Tangan Sang Pencatat Pajak, Etienne

Kuburan Air pun simpan Siluet

Sebab Kapal Singa ditumpang Pencatat Pajak Benteng Penyerbuan Utara di Babel

Siluet Babel di-Ajal

Penggalian Kubur Air pun Kunci Api di Atas Air

Sebab Air dan Api tidak Naif


Kapal Singa

Seperti Kapal Malaya yang ditumpang Gerombol Pembobol Firewall dari Negeri Pembangun Great Wall

Perjalanan pulang ke Utara kandas di Sabit 7 bagian Barat Negeri Kangguru

Siluet Kapal Malaya di-Ajal

Sebab Air dan Api tidak Naif…


Benteng Penyerbuan Utara ke Ibukota

Itulah sebab Kedua Pengibar Bendera berebut Menara Babel

Dan Burung tidak mengajar Qabil berkubur Air melainkan Tanah

Sebab Burung Makhluk Angkasa, tidak menukik ke bawah tanpa Tujuan

Burung Menukik,

Pembuka Api di Atas Air

Reminder: While U.S. is arresting adults and abusing kids from Central America, China is pledging to invest $38 Billion to rebuild SA power grid, incl new #solar, #wind generation - #climatechange
Money quote: "We can install a (transmission line) that can send (#solar and #wind power) where it needs to go. We could even send it all the way to the U.S." - #renewables
Ironically, this was precisely the strategy of "Connect the Americas 2022" program launched by Secy State @HillaryClinton under @BarackObama in 2012 - - #climatechange #RenewableEnergy

Harini saya nak story sikit tntg sejarah, koleksi & kontroversi wang Malaysia kita iaitu Ringgit.

PS : boleh jadi rujukan kpd Newbies Numis.
Sebelum mula ini sikit Fast Fact.

Numismatic ialah orang yg suka kumpul duit. Tak kisah duit lama atau baru, dalam atau luar negara asalkan duit. Menabung duit bukan dikira Numis.

Philatelic pula ialah orang suka kumpul setem. Jika setem hasil tak tahu apa status.

Nama Ringgit maksud "bergerigi" iaitu sisi bergerigi yang terdapat pada wang perak dolar Sepanyol yang digunakan secara meluas pd zaman penjajahan Portugis sekitar abad ke-16 & ke-17.
Ada juga kata bila koin tu dipecah 8 ia bergerigi. Sbb tu dipanggil Piece of Eight (8)

Folks, I don’t have time to write an article, so here’s my two-cents on the upcoming #ModiXisummit (informal) in Wuhan. I’m seeing a lot of brouhaha being played by the Indian media, think-tankies regarding the “reset”, “thaw” in relations.
1)The meeting draws on the similar format of reset and informal meets organised by Xi for Obama in 2013 and the Mar-a-lago summit hosted for Xi by Trump last year. Both have failed to bring any kind of reset. Instead there is a trade war looming between China and USA now
2)no formal/informal talks can belie the deep distrust both India and China have for each other, deeply drilled through history and contemporary strategic realities. The summit, while attempting “reset” after Doklam might at best be talking shop, garden walks and photo-ops
