    CCP: The West is a basket case... (or How To Turn Existential Threat Into An Opportunity...)


    Global Times: #COVID19 is exposing all the structural flaws and weaknesses accumulated by the West. The exhaustion of the driving force of Western globalization is increasingly evident. A clear constructive force of globalization with Chinese characteristics is emerging.

    In other news, even the friggin tories are disengaging from the CCP these days.



    (I suppose David Cameron is still contractually bound to flogging CCP's business interests in the UK though...?)

    And one more fun thread:

    More CCP soft power overreach backfiring. The Chinese consulate asked Wisconsin state senate president @SenatorRoth
    to pass a resolution that they wrote praising China's response to the coronavirus. Instead he wrote one to push back on CCP disinformation.

    By threatening to deny flyover rights the CCP could, with apparent ease, make the once-celebrated Cathay Pacific to bow, replace leadership with characters of their choosing and force the entire staff to cower under new authoritarian rules.

    Now they've gone and actually denied entry to airspace to a Polish / European Union airliner (cargo being life-saving humanitarian gear no less) simply on the basis of some long outdated dictatorial dogma.

    Considering Poland's collective trauma under another expansionist communist dictatorship, how does the CCP reckon this will play out? That the Europeans have already forgotten why they're desperately seeking this gear to stop their people from dying...?

    Polish cargo plane forbidden to fly over China: this Polish Airlines cargo plane flew to Taiwan especially carry back to the facemasks donated by Taiwan a few days ago. Of the 10 million masks donated by Taiwan, Poland received 500,000 pieces. China forbid it to fly over CN...
