La Cina è vicina.

#Cina, navi da guerra di #Pechino in #Africa

La Cina è vicina.

L'inaspettato volto umano della #Cina che sta "colonizzando" l'#Africa.
#Pechino non è solo il primo investitore nel Continente africano. Sono un centinaio le #Ong impegnate nel sociale.

La #Cina è vicina.

L'#Africa è già una colonia cinese.
Le multinazionali di #Pechino proseguono indisturbate la conquista del continente nero. Con un piano di investimenti da oltre 60 miliardi di dollari. E scarso rispetto per i diritti dei lavoratori

In his rush to let @JaredKushner, @StevenMnuchin1, & @Larry_Kudlow make a deal w/ #China’s #CCP, I fear that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump may not fully understand the existential downside risks that he’s facing. A deal w/ #Beijing will lose #Trump many, many friends & allies…
… and not simply in terms of individuals, but in terms of nation-states. Countries like #Japan, #India, & #Taiwan will suddenly find themselves on their back foot if #Trump kowtows to his friend, Chairman #XiJinping, & I shudder to think how they’ll respond. But beyond…
… sophisticated & capable actors like #Tokyo, #NewDelhi, & #Taipei, @POTUS @realDonaldTrump can expect draw the ire of an even wider circle: persons from #Tibet, #EastTurkistan, #Nepal, & elsewhere will view such a “deal” as hostile to their interests. Moreover, it doesn’t…

"I want to warn the world about an unprecedented danger that’s threatening the very survival of open societies.

…I’ll focus on #China, where President #XiJinping wants a one-party state to reign supreme."

"Xi is trying to consolidate all the available info about a person into a centralized database to create a 'social credit system'..people will be evaluated by algorithms that will determine whether they pose a threat to the 1-party state. People will then be treated accordingly."
"#China is not the only #authoritarian regime in the world, but it is undoubtedly the #wealthiest, #strongest & most developed in machine learning & #AI.

This makes #Xi the #most #dangerous #opponent of those who believe in the concept of #OpenSociety."

Faced w/ an economy on the brink of implosion, #China’s #XiJinping‘ll probably have no choice but to switch to belligerency to rally domestic support. I fear even luminaries like @MikePillsbury misunderstand the situation. #Beijing’s empty trade promises are a stalling tactic…
… to give the #PLA time to prep for a new #ColdWar. The correct COA right now is to aggressively pursue a strongpoint containment strategy vs. #China while giving support to the people of #Tibet, #EastTurkistan, #InnerMongolia, #Manchuria, #HongKong, & #Taiwan, & while seeking…
… détente &, eventually, rapprochement (w/in limits) w/ #Russia (provided that #Moscow addresses certain high-ticket items, like its #INFTreaty violations). This misguided 3-month #TradeWar “truce” is a reprieve #China‘s using to strengthen & ready itself. A strategic mistake.

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

#Abdication
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.

THREAD: I promised I'd try my abest to #FactcheckChina at today's #ChinaUPR. But I find that's rather hard when the delegation statement isn't available online...

But as they say, a picture is worth a thousand words. Here are a few choice selections from the China PR campaign.
The whole point of protecting #HumanRights is to ensure equality for those who are NOT "the overwhelming majority". But it appear that #XiJinping Thought would have it otherwise.

A colourful photo of streetlife in #Xinjiang. Which also happens to have seen a massive expansion of camps/detention facilities since 2016, where one might be locked up arbitrarily for simple religious expression. #FactcheckChina

A complicated situation on the ground: Writers face opaque and ever-shifting rules on banned subjects. Most self-censor to some degree to avoid repercussions that could end their careers. But many are also unwilling to avoid sensitive subjects. pen.org/forbidden-feed…
Despite many frustrations, there is still relatively more freedom of expression in online publishing, compared to traditional print. The prominent role of #socialmedia in #China has made creative fields more democratic as consumers have more ways to support creators.
As online censorship restrictions tighten, a deleted post is the least of some users’ worries. Writers and organizations have to contend with the possibility
that their social media accounts will get shut down entirely, or that administrators will get arrested.

We will be at war with NKorea before #Christmas!
#Trump is putting the final pieces in place before he goes for all out War 1/
2/ I have said previously that whatever #China & #Russia's response to a #USA attack on #NKorea, it would be unified. That why he's in #Asia
3/ He's making the rounds, laying the ground work. First stop #Japan & promises of protection from #Nkorea's nukes.
