    OK so now this Drew guy that has been stirring up a lot of shit with China has just been arrested in London for threatening to bomb the Chinese embassy. But he says he didn't make the threat and the Chinese are framing him. Someone sent the bomb threat from [email protected], he says its not his email address but the London police still arrested him anyway

    Looked this up actually and there were no anti-China slogans at all, only anti-CCP. Please correct your statement.

    Yes when I say China I mean Chinese government. I thought that is obvious, like if I said Washington are dickheads then everyone knows I am talking about US politicians and not people that live in Washington. I dont think is a need to clarify.

    Not at all because for example, anti-Trump is very different to being anti-American. In the same way one can love China, but hate the CCP.

    I also find it peculiar in the battle between a young idealist activist and a one-party authoritarian dictatorship you choose the latter.

    Wait, sorry, I do NOT choose the latter. Maybe my posting style or choice of language is poor sometimes. But just to be clear, when I say this guy is stirring up shit with China, I mean:
    - Stirring up shit = Good on him. I like shit stirrers!
    - China = Chinese government. Since China only has one government without an opposition, I personally thought it was fairly clear I meant the government and not the people. Like 60 minutes in their "Taking on China" headline below.

    Apologies if I was not clear

    Sports are spineless in general. Saudi is really pushing to become a major player with FI, Football, Golf, and the Winter Games (yes, winter).

    Massively off-topic but since it's forgotten - are there any Geoexpatters who are Saudi natives. Or any from the OPEC countries - not coal but kinda curious if their local news running any headlines abt the climate change agenda or is any talk/worry abt the future and how to find alternative streams when their crude oil export revenue which will most certainly drop with eco-energy/net zero carbon/electric cars if that gets to go its way full steam..
