    I don't really see what Chinese people's "happiness" has to do with Taiwan either. But, you brought it up.

    It sounds as though you are changing your tone?

    Before you were convinced China blocked vaccines to Taiwan.

    Now you are "concerned" that China "might have" blocked vaccines to Taiwan.

    It won't be long before the whole meme is exposed for the China-hating garbage that it is.

    A country of 1.4 billion people, who is as strong as they say they are, doesn't need to play victim

    The article I posted was from February. It suggests Taiwan have been trying to buy Pfizer vaccines for a very long time.

    There's definitely some hypocrisy in western reporting about China, but I'm curious, are you saying China did NOT block vaccine distribution to Taiwan? I believe this is pretty widely documented. China itself is pretty open about keeping Taiwan out of organizations so that any health decisions have to be made by Shanghai (if I remember correctly). Taiwan is part of China and all, right?

    I guess my question is then, are you saying that this isn't true, or just that you don't like that it's true? Or that it's true but normal/good? Just clarifying.

    I don't know if it is true, and I will withhold judgement until there is solid evidence either way.

    But like many other China rumours (lab leaks, weaponised viruses etc...) I *strongly suspect* it is nonsense that certain credulous foreigners are slightly too quick to parrot.

    Charisma Man strikes again.

    Do you have nothing better to do with your time in Japan than spout invectives on a Hong Kong expat forum?
