Chilling warning from #China's State Media to BOMB #Australia with long-range missiles should Canberra support #US military action in #Taiwan

#Beijing has been ramping up efforts for Taiwan 'reunification' under 'One China'…
2) Hu Xijin, the editor-in-chief of The Global Times, which is seen as Beijing's mouthpiece on foreign policy to the world, said China should retaliate with 'long-range strikes' if Australia gets involved in a potential military conflict over Taiwan.
3) He warned Australia 'they must know what disasters they would cause to their country' if they were 'bold enough to coordinate with the US to militarily interfere in the Taiwan question'.
4) Mr Hu said it would be important for the Chinese government to send a strong message about the plan for retaliatory military action 'to deter the extreme forces of Australia' from 'committing irresponsible actions'. 😲🤦😲

Tiny #Palau in not-so-pacific middle of #US & #China

There is a “high-stakes rivalry going on” between China & US.…

Biowarfare history of #China's Sinopharm vaccine maker raises questions

Suspicions among biowarfare experts, the #US government & #Taiwan's military over whether it continues to serve as a dual-use biological warfare (BW) facility for the #PLA.
2) In 1993 and again in 1995, China declared the Wuhan Institute of Biological Products (WIBP), the hub of Sinopharm's COVID-19 vaccine development, to be one of eight dual-use BW research facilities under its "national defensive biological warfare R&D program."
3) Although China denied having an "offensive" biological warfare program since signing the Biological & Toxin Weapons Convention, in 1984, the US in 2005 alleged that "China maintains some elements of an offensive biological weapon capability in violation of BTWC obligations"

THREAD: Origin of Covid — Following the Clues

Did people or nature open Pandora’s box at Wuhan?

Nicholas Wade sorted through the scientific facts, which hold many clues as to what happened & provide readers with the evidence to make their own judgments.…
2) Neither the natural emergence nor the lab escape hypothesis can yet be ruled out. There is still no direct evidence for either. So no definitive conclusion can be reached.
3) That said, the available evidence leans further in one direction than the other. Readers will form their own opinion. But it seems that proponents of lab escape can explain all the available facts about SARS2 considerably more easily than can those favoring natural emergence.

#Tesla Ready to Exit #China?

Tesla recently repaid in full a $614 million loan for the construction of its Gigafactory 3, a super factory in #Shanghai.

After the news broke, the rumor that Tesla may be preparing to leave the #Chinese market spread fast.…
2) Tesla Suppressed After Huawei’s IPO

Last month, China’s state media claimed that Huawei is the only Chinese company that is capable of competing with Tesla. Huawei’s first smart luxury all-electric car was launched in Shanghai on April 17.
3) The CCP atracts foreign firms using deception. When it grows stronger, it gets rid of them.

Taiwanese & Japanese firms have known this for a long time.

Now the CCP has thrusted the knife into Tesla, because it already learned to make electric cars & no longer needs Tesla.

#Australia needs to ‘do more’ to shore up defence of country’s north

Australia’s defences are in a worrying state as the threat of future conflict with #China grows. It’s so bad the #US is taking matters into its own hands.…
2) Air bases that can only be accessed by dirt roads, naval facilities not fit for the future & special forces stationed thousands of kilometres away – Australia’s sparsely populated north is lacking the military muscle needed in a world of increasingly “unpredictable” conflicts.
3) That’s the view of a leading defence watcher who has said the Government needs to immediately beef-up its military capability and manpower in the country’s north given its own advisers have said war could be less than a decade away.
