Let’s see, they had the Wuhan Flu, have another strain currently going around that has caused a full military type lock down response and have been feuding back and forth with Trump and getting their asses handed to them economically. Speaking of economics, they have been manipulating their currency for decades and over the last year or so their economy has taken a nose dive. Let’s not forget the corporate espionage and the rampant theft of intellectual property they have been accused of for decades now either.
They have been buying Africa wholesale for farmland because they can’t feed their own people even though they have a huge country physically.
Then there is another subject you are just starting to hear about, the Chinese actually control some of our elected officials. Mainly ones who have a big D behind their names.
They have been playing the bully down in the South China Sea for several years now trying to expand their military holdings and because there are some disputed oil deposits there they want. A side effect of that has resulted in the pushing around of Viet Nam and the Philippines and now they have decided to take on their nuclear weapons owning Super Power neighbor India, who has about the same population numbers.
I’m sure there are a couple of things I missed but hey, I’m no Chinese expert, this is all right off the top of my head.
Things are heating up on that last front.
Three Indian soldiers have been killed in a clash with Chinese forces in Ladakh in the disputed Kashmir region.
The Indian army said “senior military officials of the two sides are meeting to defuse the situation”, adding that both sides suffered casualties.
China responded by calling on India not take unilateral actions or stir up trouble, the Reuters agency reported.
China has also accused India of crossing the border and attacking Chinese soldiers, the AFP agency said.
Chinese foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian was quoted as saying that India had crossed the border, “provoking and attacking Chinese personnel, resulting in serious physical confrontation between border forces on the two sides”.
Beijing has not announced any Chinese casualties.
The clash comes amid rising tensions between the two countries. India has accused China of sending thousands of troops into Ladakh’s Galwan valley.
The deaths are believed to be the first in decades in a confrontation between the two powers. They have fought only one war so far, in 1962, when India suffered a humiliating defeat.
India accuses China of occupying 38,000 sq km of its territory. Several rounds of talks in the last three decades have failed to resolve the boundary disputes.
In may, dozens of Indian and Chinese soldiers exchanged physical blows in a clash on the border in the northeastern state of Sikkim. And in 2017, the two countries clashed in the region after China tried to extend a border road through a disputed plateau.
The Indian army is expected to address reporters shortly to provide more information about the incident.
So at this point, anyone who has been paying even the slightest attention to all of this must be asking themselves this question right about now,
Is China truly capable of sustaining a multi front war?
Because that is exactly what they are trying to do, you just won’t see any mention of it from the Main Stream Media in this country.
If you have to ask why that is, you haven’t been paying attention.
