How the Chinese Communist Party Destroyed Evidence Linking Wuhan Institute of Virology to Covid-19 By Chris Knight

     Add this to the sins of China pile – the commo party has destroyed evidence linking the corona pandemic to their Wuhan Institute of Bad Germs:
  https://www.naturalnews.com/2020-05-13-chinese-communist-party-destroyed-evidence-linking-wuhan-institute-virology-coronavirus.html

“The fix is in to remove every last trace of evidence linking the Wuhan Institute of Virology (WIV) to the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19). And the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) appears to be doing most of the heavy lifting in covering up and destroying the proof so the world never learns the truth, or at least can’t prove it. The CCP is clearly engaged in a massive whitewashing campaign that aims to conceal the fact that the WIV had been studying animal-to-human transmission of bat coronaviruses prior to the global pandemic. Those with the pull to do so have also been altering databases, destroying virus samples, and spreading lies and propaganda to try to keep the whole thing under wraps. According to the New York Post‘s Miranda Devine, citing an intelligence analyst from the United Kingdom (UK) who supposedly discovered this via open-source methods, those at the top of the food chain at the WIV have been working overtime under the cover of darkness to distance the research facility as far away as possible from the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19), even though the cat is already out of the bag. “Days before the Wuhan wet market was bleached, whistleblowers were punished and virus samples were destroyed, someone at the high-security Wuhan Institute of Virology censored its virus database in an apparent attempt to disassociate the laboratory from a novel coronavirus outbreak that would become a global pandemic,” she writes.

The Greatest Mistake in History? By Charles Taylor

     After the shock of being told, no ordered with the threat of force to go to our pens/kennels, there is starting to be a bit of critical writing about this astonishing event. It just shows how fear controls people’s behaviour:
  https://pjmedia.com/columns/dennis-prager/2020/05/05/the-worldwide-lockdown-may-be-the-greatest-mistake-in-history-n388182

“The idea that the worldwide lockdown of virtually every country other than Sweden may have been an enormous mistake strikes many — including world leaders; most scientists, especially health officials, doctors and epidemiologists; those who work in major news media; opinion writers in those media; and the hundreds of millions, if not billions, of people who put their faith in these people — as so preposterous as to be immoral. Timothy Egan of The New York Times described Republicans who wish to enable their states to open up as “the party of death.” That’s the way it is today on planet Earth, where deceit, cowardice and immaturity now dominate almost all societies because the elites are deceitful, cowardly and immature. But for those open to reading thoughts they may differ with, here is the case for why the worldwide lockdown is not only a mistake but also, possibly, the worst mistake the world has ever made. And for those intellectually challenged by the English language and/or logic, “mistake” and “evil” are not synonyms. The lockdown is a mistake; the Holocaust, slavery, communism, fascism, etc., were evils. Massive mistakes are made by arrogant fools; massive evils are committed by evil people. The forcible prevention of Americans from doing anything except what politicians deem “essential” has led to the worst economy in American history since the Great Depression of the 1930s. It is panic and hysteria, not the coronavirus, that created this catastrophe. And the consequences in much of the world will be more horrible than in America.

Amazing What is Seen When Source Code is Examined By Brian Simpson

     Here is some amazing material doing the rounds on the internet, showing that the source code of the main computer model upon which the lockdowns were based, is deeply flawed. It has really been a case of garage in, tyranny out;

Code Review of Ferguson’s Model
6 May 2020. Updated 10 May 2020.
by Sue Denim (not the author’s real name)
Imperial finally released a derivative of Ferguson’s code. I figured I’d do a review of it and send you some of the things I noticed. I don’t know your background so apologies if some of this is pitched at the wrong level.
My background. I have been writing software for 30 years. I worked at Google between 2006 and 2014, where I was a senior software engineer working on Maps, Gmail and account security. I spent the last five years at a US/UK firm where I designed the company’s database product, amongst other jobs and projects. I was also an independent consultant for a couple of years. Obviously I’m giving only my own professional opinion and not speaking for my current employer. The code. It isn’t the code Ferguson ran to produce his famous Report 9. What’s been released on GitHub is a heavily modified derivative of it, after having been upgraded for over a month by a team from Microsoft and others. This revised codebase is split into multiple files for legibility and written in C++, whereas the original program was “a single 15,000 line file that had been worked on for a decade” (this is considered extremely poor practice). A request for the original code was made 8 days ago but ignored, and it will probably take some kind of legal compulsion to make them release it.  Clearly, Imperial are too embarrassed by the state of it ever to release it of their own free will, which is unacceptable given that it was paid for by the taxpayer and belongs to them. The model.  What it’s doing is best described as “SimCity without the graphics”. It attempts to simulate households, schools, offices, people and their movements, etc. I won’t go further into the underlying assumptions, since that’s well explored elsewhere. Non-deterministic outputs. Due to bugs, the code can produce very different results given identical inputs. They routinely act as if this is unimportant. This problem makes the code unusable for scientific purposes, given that a key part of the scientific method is the ability to replicate results. Without replication, the findings might not be real at all – as the field of psychology has been finding out to its cost. Even if their original code was released, it’s apparent that the same numbers as in Report 9 might not come out of it. Non-deterministic outputs may take some explanation, as it’s not something anyone previously floated as a possibility.

Obamagate By Charles Taylor

     Well, now, at long last the mainstream media is starting to cover the scandal of this century:
  https://nypost.com/2020/05/11/looks-like-president-obama-ordered-up-phony-russiagate-scandal/

“RussiaGate is now a complete dead letter — but ObamaGate is taking its place. Just how far did the then-president go to cripple his successor? It’s now clear the Obama-Comey FBI and Justice Department never had anything more substantial than the laughable fiction of the Steele dossier to justify the “counterintelligence” investigation of the Trump campaign. Yet incessant leaks from that supposedly confidential probe wound up consuming the Trump administration’s first months in office — followed by the Bob Mueller-led special counsel investigation that proved nearly the “total witch hunt” that President Trump dubbed it. Information released as the Justice Department dropped its charges against Gen. Mike Flynn shows that President Barack Obama, in his final days in office, played a key role in fanning the flames of phony scandal. Fully briefed on the “Crossfire Hurricane” investigation, he knew the FBI had come up with nothing despite months of work starting in July 2016. Yet on Jan. 5, 2017, Obama told top officials who’d be staying on in the new administration to keep the crucial facts from Team Trump. It happened at an Oval Office meeting with Vice President Joe Biden, intel chiefs John Brennan and Jim Clapper and national security adviser Susan Rice, as well as FBI Director Jim Comey and Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates.

China Gets Ready for War By James Reed

     While the US has recently performed sabre rattling, China may be thinking about invading Taiwan, after giving the world the gift of corona. Then it will be the extra birthday gift of war, which is more than most globalist financial neo-con nihilists could possibly want, bringing all of their birthdays at once:
  https://www.theaustralian.com.au/world/the-times/coronavirus-us-deploys-bombers-in-show-of-force-to-china/news-story/e9dfc44cd100e3ae9b04e9156fa44023?utm_source=TheAustralian&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=editorial&utm_content=TATodaysHeadlinesSubPM

“Emboldened by America’s apparent distraction, China has reasserted its claims over territories in the South and East China Seas by dispatching survey and coastguard ships, leading to confrontations with vessels from Vietnam, Malaysia and Japan. It also claims to have “expelled” US warships from waters around the Paracel Islands, which it claims as its own. Last week two Chinese ships scared off a Japanese fishing boat in the waters around the Senkaku islands before the Japanese coastguard arrived and ordered the Chinese vessels to leave. On Monday Beijing declared it had an “inherent right” to patrol the waters near disputed islands in the East China Sea. A growing number of social media users in China are urging Beijing to exploit America’s preoccupation with the pandemic to invade Taiwan. At the same time, an influential state media boss in China has called for an expansion of the country’s nuclear arsenal, increasing it to 1000 warheads from its stockpile of about 300. “You don’t ask for peaceful co-existence between countries, you forge it with strategic tools, especially when we are faced with the reality that we are interacting with difficulty with a United States that is becoming increasingly irrational,” wrote Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Global Times, a Communist Party newspaper. … A superpower war involving China and the US has become that much easier to imagine this year, Richard Lloyd Parry writes. The pandemic, far from bringing the world together in solidarity against a common enemy, is widening fissures into cracks, and cracks into crevasses. Having reached a cautious truce in last year’s trade war, President Trump has made China’s culpability for the outbreak a central part of his re-election strategy. The status of Taiwan has again come to the fore. China’s tactics may have become bolder but the strategy remains the same: superpower dominance achieved through an inexorable growth of economic, military and political strength; a strength that is still far from being fully realised. President Xi and his strategists in the Communist Party believe that American decline, and Chinese resurgence, are matters of long-term historical inevitability, not short-term opportunism. The spectacle of Mr Trump’s erratic presidency gives them more conviction than ever. However, they understand how much they have to lose by leaping for Taiwan too early, or by provoking outright confrontation with Japan when the balance of military power is not yet decisively in their favour.

The Movement Against a Mandatory Covid-19 Vaccine By Mrs Vera West

     It is fine for the establishment to go for “my body, my choice,” when aborting foetuses, but when it comes to that holy of holies, vaccines, the state forgets about logical consistency, and goes full utilitarian. But there is growing opposition to a mandatory Covid-19 vaccine:
  https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/over-350k-sign-petition-against-mandatory-coronavirus-vaccination

“In only the last four days, LifeSite’s petition rejecting mandatory coronavirus vaccination has exceeded 350,000 signatures. “The enormous response to this petition shows that many people around the world absolutely will not accept a mandatory vaccine for the coronavirus,” said Gualberto Garcia Jones, director of advocacy of LifeSite. Over the next couple of weeks, LifeSite will be delivering this petition to governments around the world — in person, where possible — to make sure this message is heard, loud and clear. Right now, you can help make sure the American government knows about hundreds of thousands of people objecting to mandatory vaccination by going to the White House Facebook page and posting this story as a comment under a White House post. This petition is necessary because of the rush to produce a vaccine, as well as the recent suggestions made by a variety of policy-makers and “influencers” supporting coronavirus vaccination.

The Absurdity of Open Borders Law By Richard Miller (London)

     Many utterly illogical judgments have been delivered by the Higher courts, usually motivated by politically correct ideology, thus leading to absurdity, and here is the latest:
  https://www.breitbart.com/europe/2020/05/10/open-borders-judges-supreme-court-says-criminals-cant-be-deported-if-homeland-worse-healthcare-uk/

“Britain’s Supreme Court has thrown the country’s deportation policies into chaos by ruling that a foreign criminal cannot be deported to a country with poorer free healthcare than the United Kingdom. Justices including the top court’s infamous former president, Lady Hale, and two colleagues who also serve as ad hoc members of the European Court of Human Rights, agreed with a Zimbabwean migrant who should have been deported more than a decade ago that his removal would breach Article 3 of the European Convention on Human Rights, which states that “No-one shall be subjected to torture or inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment”. The migrant’s lawyers cleverly reinterpreted this European article, understood by most to be a prohibition against physical torture and holding people in unsanitary conditions, as a right for his client to remain in Britain so long as his home country could not provide him with the same expensive, taxpayer-funded HIV medication as the British National Health Service (NHS) free of charge — and the Supreme Court concurred. The court also “ordered that no one shall publish or reveal the name or address” of the Zimbabwean, restricting the freedom of the press to provide the public with the full facts of the case — although it did reveal that he was “convicted of battery” before the government ordered his deportation and further convicted of “offences including possession of a firearm and ammunition” after the order was given but not carried out. The government, already deporting ever-fewer migrants amid ever-rising levels of illegal migration, now fears the precedent set by the judgment will jeopardise many more deportations, including that of ISIS fighter-linked gang rapist Yaqub Ahmed — who was on the verge of finally being flown out of the country in October 2018 before a mutiny by passengers, who were seemingly never punished, allowed him to stay and lodge more appeals.”

Economic Effects of Corona Freak-Out Set to Kill More than the Bug Itself! By Chris Knight

     This item comes from our New World Order friends at the UN, so you know that it must be high in salt, and steaming hot with cosmopolitan cholesterol:
  https://www.breitbart.com/health/2020/05/12/u-n-officials-coronavirus-lockdowns-could-trigger-famine-in-dozens-of-countries/
  https://www.latimes.com/world-nation/story/2020-05-11/more-than-a-billion-people-escaped-poverty-in-the-last-20-years-the-coronavirus-could-erase-those-gains

“The economic devastation the pandemic wreaks on the ultra-poor could ultimately kill more people than the virus itself. The United Nations predicts that a global recession will reverse a three-decade trend in rising living standards and plunge as many as 420 million people into extreme poverty, defined as earning less than $2 a day. As for the 734 million people already there, the economic tsunami will make it harder for them to ever climb out. “I feel like we’re watching a slow-motion train wreck as it moves through the world’s most fragile countries,” said Nancy Lindborg, president of the nonprofit U.S. Institute of Peace and former head of the Ebola task force at the U.S. Agency for International Development. Hunger is already rising in the poorest parts of the world, where lockdowns and social distancing measures have erased incomes and put even basic food items out of reach. In Guatemala, villagers are begging for food along highways by waving pieces of white cloth at passing drivers. In Colombia, the hungriest hang red flags from their homes in hope of donations. Recent phone surveys in places as disparate as Senegal and rural China suggest that large swaths of society have lost their livelihoods and, as a result, are eating less.The U.N. predicts the coronavirus could push an additional 130 million people to the brink of starvation by the end of 2020. World Vision, an international Christian aid organization, warns that 30 million children are at risk of dying.

Will This Move Sleepy Donald Duck? By Chris Knight

     Will sleepy Trump be moved to finally act on Big Tech when his ego is hit, when his beloved Twitter gets hit?
  https://edition.cnn.com/2020/05/11/tech/twitter-coronavirus-misinformation/index.html

“Twitter said Monday it plans to put labels and warning messages on some tweets that contain disputed or misleading information related to Covid-19, even if it's tweeted by President Donald Trump. Twitter (TWTR) announced in March that it would remove Covid-19 tweets that could cause a "direct risk to people's health or well-being." Starting Monday, it will use labels and warning messages "to provide additional explanations or clarifications in situations where the risks of harm associated with a Tweet are less severe but where people may still be confused or misled by the content." Trump, possibly Twitter's most prolific user, will also be subject to the rules, according to Yoel Roth, Twitter's head of site integrity. "These labels will apply to anyone sharing misleading information that meets the requirements of our policy, including world leaders," Roth wrote in a tweet Monday in response to a question about how the policy would apply to Trump and other elected officials. At a White House briefing in April, Trump dangerously suggested ingesting disinfectants could help cure coronavirus. Trump has also promoted unproven drug therapies for the virus. For Twitter, the hard part arguably isn't introducing the policy, but implementing it consistently. Twitter announced last summer that it would label tweets from world leaders that broke its rules. But a month after Twitter announced the policy, the company said tweets in which the president used racist language to attack four progressive Democratic congresswoman were not against its rules — a conclusion apparently contradicted by Twitter's written policies.”

America Comes to the Rescue! By James Reed

     When weak little Aussie wanted to find out what China got up to regarding corona, the Chinese panda snapped back, threatening sacred trade. But, the US is coming to the rescue of this ageing, damsel in distress:
  https://www.smh.com.au/world/north-america/we-back-our-aussie-mates-us-congress-members-slam-china-threats-20200511-p54rrx.html

“A bipartisan group of US Congress members has blasted China for threatening economic retaliation against Australia, following the Morrison government's call for an independent investigation into the origins of the coronavirus pandemic. In a letter to Australia's US Ambassador Arthur Sinodinos, the 27 senators and House of Representatives members said that China had made "deeply disturbing" threats to punish Australia for seeking an international inquiry into the origins of COVID-19. "This incident is part of a broader and concerning pattern from the Chinese government," the politicians said in the letter. "As we continue to confront this deadly disease and its consequences, we will be faced with many tough decisions, including those that may arise from the Chinese government’s continued lack of cooperation and transparency. "No matter the external pressure or coercion, we will always have Australia’s back, just as Australia has always had ours."

Riots and No Go Zones By Richard Miller

     They said that there were no no-go areas in France, as diversity and multiculturalism were so beautiful. Now there are riots there, corona lockdown riots:
  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/15977/france-no-go-zones-riots

“A few months ago, a police officer, Noam Anouar, who infiltrated Islamist circles... stated that no-go zones in France are now foreign enclaves on French territory. "The gangs operating there," he wrote, "have formed a parallel economy based on drug trafficking. They consider themselves at war with France and with Western civilization. They act in cooperation with Islamist organizations, and define acts of predation and rampage as raids against infidels". He noted that reclaiming these areas today would be complicated, costly, and involve calling in the army. For years, successive French governments have chosen a policy of "willful blindness": they simply behave as if they do not see what is going on. They do not even try to find solutions. Saturday, April 18, 11 pm. Villeneuve-la-Garenne, a small town in the northern suburbs of Paris. A young man rides a motorcycle at high speed and hits the door of a police car. He breaks his leg. He is sent to the hospital. He does not have a driver's license but does have a long criminal history. He was sentenced several times by the courts for drug trafficking, robbery with violence and sexual assault. As soon as news of the accident is released, hostile messages about the police circulate on social media; and in a dozen cities in France, riots break out. The riots are continue for five days in a row. A police station in Strasbourg is attacked and set on fire. A school is nearly destroyed a few miles from Villeneuve-la-Garenne.

Dying Now in Lockdown By Richard Miller

     It seems that many people, or at least a sizeable number, are dying in lockdown:
  https://summit.news/2020/05/11/thousands-of-people-are-dying-at-home-due-to-the-lockdown/

“A Guardian analysis has found that there have been thousands of excess deaths of people at home in the UK due to the lockdown. “The data shows 8,196 more deaths at home in England, Wales and Scotland compared with the five-year average for this time of year, including 6,546 non-Covid deaths,” reports the newspaper. “It also indicates a drop in non-Covid deaths in hospital, however, leading experts to conclude that many who would ordinarily have been admitted to a ward and died there are instead dying at home.” According to Jason Oke, a statistician with the Nuffield Department of Primary Care Health Sciences at the University of Oxford, one explanation for the numbers is that, “People are dying of other causes that would not have happened under normal conditions – and are collateral damage of the lockdown.” Another analysis suggests there could have already been around 10,000 excess deaths in the UK compared with previous years.”

What about Wuhan? By Brian Simpson

     Is this bug thing ever going to end? Maybe not. There has been a rapid rise in Covid-19 cases in the home of the Wuhan flu, Wuhan, in the last few days, but the commo authorities are doing what they do best; keeping relatively tight-lipped about the problem. It sounds familiar. And, lockdown measures are back:

European Style National Suicide By Richard Miller

     This sums up Europe in a nutshell; native Europeans rot in lockdown, while illegal migrants do what illegal migrants do:
  https://www.gatestoneinstitute.org/16013/european-lockdown-illegal-immigrants

“While Europe is experiencing an economic shock without precedent, and tens of millions of Europeans have lost their livelihoods, migrants in Europe illegally are being showered with free housing and healthcare. The actual number of illegal immigrants in France is unknown but was estimated to be between 300,000 and 400,000 in 2017, according to the Pew Research Center. Considering the waves of mass migration since then, the number is probably well above a half-million. Britain has up to 1.2 million illegal immigrants, a quarter of all those that have unlawfully entered Europe, according to the Pew Research Center.... The UK's leniency appears to have sparked another wave of illegal immigration. Since the coronavirus lockdown began on March 23, nearly 900 people have illegally crossed the English Channel from France, according to Migration Watch UK. "There is great discontent among the [German] population because everyone who arrives here immediately has many or even higher rights and rights to benefits or medical care than someone who has worked here for their entire life." — Interior Minister of Saarland, Klaus Bouillon (CDU), interview with Die Welt. "Muslim countries currently have 300 million males under the age of 15. This is not a forecast, but already a reality. Scientists like Gunnar Heinsohn assume that a maximum of 100 million can obtain a position in the society of their home country. The remaining 200 million will try to emigrate or otherwise fight for their place." — Anabel Schunke, political commentator, German blog Die Achse des Guten.

Jobless Until 2024, Then Replaced by Migrants By James Reed

     The joys of Centrelink … like mother’s milk …in Bangladesh, or wherever it is now that people are starving … maybe Australia … soon …
  https://au.finance.yahoo.com/news/unemployment-hangover-2024-013804603.html

“Some forecasts of the unemployment rate have reached as high as 15.1 per cent – but getting this figure down to pre-coronavirus level won’t be in reach for another four years, a Deloitte economist has said. According to Deloitte Access Economics partner Chris Richardson, Australia will have to “champion a new round of much-needed economic reforms” if it is to address the major shortfall in national income even after the virus crisis is over. Deloitte estimates the federal government’s budget deficit will hit $143.1 billion in the 2019-20 financial year, well undercutting the government’s own forecast of a $5 billion surplus from its December mid-year review. But fixing the budget won’t lie in raising taxes: it will be on boosting the economy. “Our defence against the coronavirus has been world-leading. But just beating back the virus isn’t enough,” Richardson said. Prime Minister Scott Morrison recently said that flattening the unemployment curve would be Australia’s next priority. The jobless rate is expected to hit 10 per cent or even higher under forecasts by both the Grattan Institute and the governor of the Reserve Bank. But unemployment goes down much faster than it comes back up, Richardson pointed out. “The ‘mission accomplished’ signs can’t be put up until unemployment is back at 5%. On our forecasts, that doesn’t happen until late 2024. “We’re years away from returning unemployment to the 5 per cent rate it was at when this crisis hit.”

China and WHO Cover Up; Trust us, We are Global Authorities! By Brian Simpson

     This information should be used against all those who have blind faith in the wonders of the World Health Organization:
  https://www.taiwannews.com.tw/en/news/3931126
  https://www.breitbart.com/health/2020/05/10/report-china-pressured-who-to-cover-up-coronavirus-outbreak/

“The World Health Organization has dismissed as “false allegations” a media report that it withheld information about the new coronavirus following pressure from China. The U.N. agency said in a statement late Saturday that a German magazine’s report about a telephone conversation between WHO chief Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus and Chinese President Xi Jinping on Jan. 21 was “unfounded and untrue.” Weekly Der Spiegel reported that Xi asked Tedros during the call to hold back information about human-to-human transmission of the virus and delay declaring a pandemic. The magazine quoted Germany’s foreign intelligence agency, BND, which declined to comment Sunday. Der Spiegel also claimed that the BND concluded up to six weeks of time to fight the outbreak had been lost due to China’s information policy. The U.N. agency said Tedros and Xi “have never spoken by phone” and added that “such inaccurate reports distract and detract from WHO’s and the world’s efforts to end the COVID-19 pandemic.” It said that China confirmed human-to-human transmission of the new coronavirus on Jan. 20. WHO officials issued a statement two days later saying there was evidence of human-to-human transmission in Wuhan, but more investigation was necessary. The global body declared COVID-19 a pandemic on Feb. 11. U.S. President Donald Trump has been among the strongest critics of WHO’s handling of the pandemic, accusing it of deference to China and ceasing payments to the agency.”

“We Don’t Ever Want Everywhere to be the Same.” Elon Musk and Anti-Globalism By James Reed

     Elon’s grammar needs a bit of work, but his heart is in the right place, expressing his understanding of the anti-globalist philosophy:
  https://summit.news/2020/05/08/elon-musk-says-he-sympathizes-with-anti-globalist-movement/

“During his appearance on the Joe Rogan podcast, Elon Musk said he sympathized with the anti-globalization movement because “we don’t ever want everywhere to be the same.” The context of the conversation was how civilizations rise and fall and are negatively affected by hive mind thinking, a concept Musk referred to as the “mind virus.” “I do think that the globalization that we have at the memesphere – there’s not enough isolation between countries or regions. If there’s a mind virus, that mind virus can infect too much of the world,” said Musk. “I actually sort of sympathize with the anti-globalization people because we don’t ever want everywhere to be the same for sure and we need some kind of mind viral immunity,” he remarked, adding, “That’s a bit concerning.” The Tesla founder clarified that he was talking about a concept that “happens right now” and not in the future, suggesting he may have been referring to the coronavirus panic. “When I’m talking about the mind virus, I’m talking about a concept that infects people’s minds,” said Musk, describing it as a “wrongheaded idea that goes viral in an idea sense.” As we previously highlighted, Musk has become a target of the establishment after he called for the coronavirus lockdown to be lifted. The Tesla founder asserted at the beginning of March that the panic behind COVID-19 was “dumb.” He briefly discussed the issue elsewhere in the Rogan interview, asserting that the mortality rate of coronavirus turned out to be vastly lower than health authorities initially claimed.”

Settling Wars by Fist Fights and Stone Throwing By John Steele

     I very much like the idea of the voluntary abandonment of modern weapons and for soldiers to resort to fist fights and throwing huge rocks at each other. For one thing, it is cheap, and second, nothing brings home the satisfaction of defeating an opponent in hand to hand combat … witness the September 2021 boxing match to be held between Halfthor and Eddie Hall to settle differences. We see it in movies, but it really is the manly thing to do: go primal:
  https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/indian-and-chinese-troops-clash-fistfight-disputed-border

“Dozens of Indian and Chinese soldiers were injured in a cross-border clash involving fistfights and stone-throwing at a remote but strategically important mountain pass near Tibet, the Indian Army said Sunday according to the Straits Times and BBC. There have been long-running border tensions between the nuclear-armed neighbours, with a bitter war fought over India's north-eastern-most state of Arunachal Pradesh in 1962. The two countries have competing claims over their shared 3,400 kilometre (2,100 mile) border. Sometimes stand-offs involve chest-bumping, pushing and shoving, and throwing stones at each other, BBC South Asia Editor Anbarasan Ethirajan reports. The latest tense face-off took place near the Naku La sector in Sikkim, more than 5,000 meters (16,400ft) above sea level in the Himalayas. "Aggressive behaviour by the two sides resulted in minor injuries to troops. It was stone-throwing and arguments that ended in a fistfight," Indian Army Eastern Command spokesman Mandeep Hooda told AFP. The "stand-off" on Saturday at Naku La sector near the 4,572m Nathu La crossing in the north-eastern state of Sikkim - which borders Bhutan, Nepal and China - was later resolved after "dialogue and interaction" at a local level, Hooda said. "Temporary and short duration face-offs between border-guarding troops do occur as boundaries are not resolved," he added.
