"Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the #SouthChinaSea. We are making clear: #Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them."
"In the #SouthChinaSea, we seek to preserve peace and stability, uphold #freedom of the #seas in a manner consistent with international #law, maintain the unimpeded flow of #commerce, and oppose any attempt to use coercion or force to settle disputes."

Risks & uncertainty are mounting for #HongKongers.

Beijing has adopted, & is already implementing, a popularly-opposed #NationalSecurityLaw that effectively invalidates core #1C2S-promised protections.

#NatSecLaw negates #SAR’s judiciary & freedoms

#HongKong’s long-deteriorating situation has come to a head.

Today, just b/f #July1, Beijing imposed a popularly-opposed #NationalSecurityLaw negating the Special Autonomous Region’s judiciary & freedoms.

andrewerickson.com/2020/06/china-…

Dissidents are vulnerable; everyone is at risk.
#Beijing has abruptly abandoned binding commitments & reassurances, which underwrote #HongKong’s handover from Britain in 1997, & its subsequent special treatment by the United States & other nations.

Now, sadly, Hong Kong’s identity & status lies damaged & altered irrevocably.

1. Recently, some people talk of supporting #Taiwan participating in the World Health Assembly (#WHA) or even the @WHO. #China’s position has been consistent and clear. @SKinnock
2. There is only one #China in the world; the #Taiwan region is an inalienable part of #China’s territory. This is the consensus of the international community.
3. In October 1971, the United Nations General Assembly adopted at its 26th session Resolution 2758, recognizing the People's Republic of China (#PRC) as the sole legitimate government representing the whole of #China.

.@MikePillsbury says Chinese hardliners fear that #SteveBannon & the #CPDC (Committee on the Present Danger: #China) “want to bring China to its knees and destroy it.”

Nobody wants that. People just want to see the end of the #CCP (Chinese Communist Party). Those who… (1/3)
… naïvely think that a #TradeDeal will somehow lead to “reform” in #China are mistaken, and I question whether “reform” is even a wise goal, as that implies a continuation of the #CCP.

Should our goal not be an implosion of the #PRC/#CCP Party-State, à la the #USSR/#CPSU? (2/3)
… As #Aristotle states in his Nicomachean Ethics, “evil destroys even itself, and if it is complete, becomes unbearable.”

Perhaps it‘s better then for us to pump the brakes on “reform” & instead allow #China’s Communist Party to live out its own nature… & destroy itself. (3/3)

Bueno, pues aquí viene mi comentario acodado en la barra (bueno, en mi escritorio) de las elecciones de ayer. #10N
Abro hilo ⬇
Primero, la participación.
Ha bajado de media en todo el estado con respecto a abril algo menos de 2 puntos.
1.835.000 votos menos
¿Esto ha beneficiado a la derecha o a la izquierda?
La izquierda ha perdido, sumando las pérdidas del PSOE y UP (y sumando los votos de Más País), 859.000 votos.

La derecha ha perdido, sumando subidas de PP y Vox y restandole la de Cs, 806.000 votos.

Parece que la abstención no influido más a ninguno de los bloques. #10N

People stepping on the “Road of #XiJinping”, quite a number of them even stopped and jumped on it. Ahead of Chinese National Day, focus of #HongKong protest is shifted to discontent to CCP. #HongKongProtests
This is how #HongKong protesters appeal to mainland Chinese ahead of 1st Oct national day - Lyrics of Chinese National Anthem “March of the volunteers” are presented with pictures of democratic movement & CCP’s repression. #China70years #HongKongProtest
How #HongKong protesters appeal to mainland Chinese - Lyrics of #PRC National Anthem are presented under the context of 1989 democratic movement.
>#LiuXiaobo spoke at Tiananmen Square

Occam's Razor perspective indicates that such complexity is doubtful.

My 1st Master's degree focused on Chinese Intel & Military Ops under a spook & a now-retired general. I researched & wrote on Huawei intensively.

US MIC & #DeepState r in a death-struggle w/ #PRC #CCP #PLA &
despite all of the puffery of the strength of our military, the PRC is gaining more rapidly in power than the US. #DeepState & US MIC are in a pretty tough fight.

We also have to worry about Russia (and Iran) siding with China should a conflict develop between US & PRC
I wrote this back in August of 2016, regarding the danger of a China-Iran-Russia, tripartite military alliance.

The 340 page dissertation I did for my Ph.D. focused on Chinese military and industrial operations.

Buenos días followers. Hoy toca comentar el resacón electoral de ayer.
Resacón porque con 3 recuentos se alargó hasta bastante tarde y también por algunos resultados para la izquierda... Coged un café que empezamos! #Elecciones #26M
Para empezar, un vistazo general:
En las municipales, el PSOE primera fuerza en muchas localidades, desbancando al PP. Se repetirá en las autonómicas.
Difícil saber por dónde empezar con tanto resultado!
Vamos primero a #Galicia a ver qué nos cuentan! #Galiza #Elecciones #26M
La capital de #Galicia, #Santiago de #Compostela, estaba gobernada hasta ahora por una marea municipal, Compostela Aberta. Los votantes no parecen haber refrendado al alcalde, que pierde muchos votos y pasa de 10 concejales a 5. La alcaldía pasará al PSOE.

1/8 My favorite #quote by #JosephStalin, which explains the scientific, #DialecticalMaterialist explanation of true freedom in material reality, not just as an abstract ideal. #StalinIsBack #StalinLives #JVStalin #Stalin #StalinQuote #StalinQuotes #Truth #MELS #MarxismLeninism
2/8 Having an #objective, #rational, #ScientificSocialist, #Dialectical, & #Materialist viewpoint allows us to accurately see & evaluate & analyze #Truth & #Reality as they truly materially exist in this universe.
3/8 An idealistic, dogmatic viewpoint, which capitalists have, however, makes one irrational enough to 'see' freedom where freedom stays trapped on a piece of paper while people are oppressed in their actual lived lives.
