A new Chinese military white paper promises war with Taiwan, criticism of the Trump Administration, and more cooperation with Russia and its military, while Chinese and Russian nuclear bombers fly over Japan and South Korea. FBI director Christopher Wray says China is stealing the US blind.
China threatens to send the military into Hong Kong as triads attack protesters. Yes, China is also on the warpath pretty much everywhere. This week retired Chinese Communist Party official Li Peng died on Monday night. Li Peng was known for killing a lot of people – you might know him as the butcher of Beijing one of the masterminds behind the Tiananmen Square massacre or as state-run Xinhua News describes him, an excellent party member.
The Tiananmen Square massacre is on everyone’s mind for another reason Hong Kong Chinese authorities are maybe possibly considering sending in the People’s Liberation Army if the Hong Kong government asks nicely The chief spokesman for the Ministry of National Defense senior colonel Wu Chin said the behavior of some radical protesters challenges the central government’s authority that absolutely cannot be tolerated, so you know, protestors splash black paint on the national emblem, we get to crush you with tanks – fair’s fair…
Colonel Wu went on to reference a law that allows the People’s Liberation Army to intervene when requested by Hong Kong’s leaders to maintain order or assistant in cases of natural disasters. In completely unrelated news the People’s Liberation Army is running anti-riot drills in Guangdong province according to their Weibo account, but would Hong Kong’s chief executive Carrie Lam actually call in the PLA? Well she may not have much choice if she’s requested to by Beijing, but at the end of the day the Chinese Communist Party knows who’s really to blame for the protests. It’s the fundamental incompatibility between China’s authoritarian party state and Hong Kong’s cherished freedoms.
It’s the black hands of the hostile foreign forces leading things on the ground which is why the Chinese regime is calling on the US to remove its black hands from Hong Kong. Of course that’s ridiculous, we left Hong Kong weeks ago but even without the Chinese military in Hong Kong, things are already getting violent after weeks of clashes between demonstrators and police – the spotlight has shifted to the territory’s shadowy criminal network. Some opposition lawmakers say the men in white were triad gangsters, yes, the infamous Hong Kong triads and they’re on the side of the Chinese Communist Party! I mean they do have a lot in common. At least 45 people were injured on Sunday after men in white t-shirts attacked protesters as well as bystanders, like this guy who was just trying to get home. Fortunately, despite the conflicts between police and protesters over the past month, police were quick to stop the violence. One lawmaker said it took police more than an hour to show up after he called them. Some of the footage was pretty graphic, but we can’t show that to you because the last time we showed footage of a violent police response to a protest in the Chinese city of Wuhan, YouTube age-restricted the video, so hardly anyone saw it It’s important to protect people from facts…
So far police have arrested several men with triad links related to the attack but the police have also banned a planned protests against mob violence. Well I’m sure that no one would dare protest now but there might be a few hundred thousand people who show up on Saturday to hold a religious gathering because they’re really really sad Li Peng died. That’s why, but I wouldn’t want you to think that Chinese Communist Party is on the warpath with Hong Kong. There are plenty of other countries / regions where the Chinese Communist Party is also on the warpath. In a newly released Chinese military white paper the party says if Taiwan ever moves towards formal independence, the Chinese Communist Party will go to war. This comes in the same month the u.s. announced a two billion dollar weapons deal with Taiwan, so this should be fun.
Defense Ministry spokesman Moo Ch Ian said we must firmly point out that seeking Taiwan independence is a dead end, after which he chuckled a bit before saying seriously we will invade Taiwan and kill anyone who resists. China’s new military white paper also took aim at the Trump administration for standing up to the Chinese Communist Party. It claimed hegemony is on the rise, to which Trump responded gotta catch’em all hegemon, but I wouldn’t want you to think that Chinese Communist Party is on the warpath with only Hong Kong, Taiwan and the United States. The white paper also is promising more military cooperation with Russia to which South Korea responded, oh really we hadn’t noticed.
A few days before the white paper release two Russian bombers and two Chinese warplanes, both capable of dropping nuclear weapons entered South Korea’s air defense identification zone, which was shortly followed by another Russian aircraft, and then South Korea scrambled 18 fighter jets which fired machine-gun rounds and released flares, but I wouldn’t want you to think that Chinese commies party is on the warpath with only Hong Kong, Taiwan, the United States and South Korea. Japan said the Chinese and Russian aircraft also flew over disputed Japanese territory which is great news.
Don’t worry though, Taiwan, South Korea and Japan are not the real problems. It’s the United States that’s to blame for destabilizing the world, the military white paper, besides highlighting all the places China is willing to go to war over, singled out the US for undermining global strategic stability and China resolutely opposes the wrong practices and provocative activities of the US. For example, last week President Trump met with victims of religious persecution from around the world, including four people from China, a Tibetan Buddhist, a Uigar Muslim, a Christian and a Falun Gong practitioner, thank you very much.
My favorite Chinese foreign ministry spokesman and Mortal Kombat character Liu Kang was furious. He said there is no so-called religious persecution in China at all. The Chinese citizens enjoy freedom of religious belief in accordance with law! Oh Liu Kang just pulled off a fatality on facts speaking of the US as provocative activities. here’s FBI director Christopher Rea clearly antagonizing the Communist Party, so China is fighting a generational fight here, and when I say China, I want to be clear this is not about the Chinese people as a whole, and it’s certainly not about Chinese Americans in this country. What it is about though, is about a country that is in a variety of ways, through the Chinese government, the Chinese Communist Party, using not just government officials but private-sector entities to steal their way up the economic ladder, at our expense. Okay sure Christopher Wray is making it very clear this is not about Chinese people as a whole, but when people have criticized the Communist Party before, that hasn’t ever stopped the Communist Party from crying racism. Anyway after all Liu Kang is mister fact fatality but the accusation that China was stealing their way up the economic ladder was echoed by Brigadier General Deanna Burt of the US Space Command. She recently said China was stealing the US Space Command blind, which I can only assume means China has stolen Geordi’s visor, but China’s space program may be having some problems. A senior official there is under investigation for corruption, which have you been paying any attention, in China is censored you know. What it means when an official is charged with corruption. Chinese leader Xi Jinping has made the military a particular focus of his so-called anti-corruption campaign and while in most cases the officials really are corrupt, the corrupt ones Xi Jinping goes after also tend to be tied to his political rivals, which is why there’s a saying in China: shoot for the moon even if you miss, dying in the vacuum of space is still better than what the Communist Party will do to you.
And finally the China Russia cooperation doesn’t stop at the military. It’s also hitting the big screen – the Jackie Chan Arnold Schwarzenegger movie was directed by a Russian and filmed in Beijing. It’s called the mystery of the dragon seal journey to China It’s a chance to recapture all that childhood magic and then throw that magic on the ground and stomp on it. After you realize your childhood heroes have been tarnished forever.
Just ask the Tibetan Buddhists, but beyond the Tibetans, Buddhism, Taoism and Confucianism have also been heavily persecuted, especially during the Cultural Revolution when their ancient religious iconography got smashed under Mao. There was even a specific campaign to criticize Confucius, but once Buddhist, Taoist and Confucians were brought to heel, the Chinese Communist Party set up the state administration for religious affairs, so religion could flourish as a well controlled part of the officially atheist Chinese Communist Party. Each of the five major religions in China has been controlled by the party under this organization but in 2018 Xi Jinping said the State Administration for Religious Affairs would be dissolved and religion would come directly under the control of the United Front work department, because remember, as Liu Kang said, there is no so-called religious persecution in China at all – the Chinese citizens enjoy freedom of religious belief in accordance with law and Liu Kang is an expert at sending people to the afterlife…
