China is mad at us for daring to ask for accountability over the whole corona bug episode, and we have not even gone to the level of Donny Trump and talked about engineered bioweapons and all that great conspiracy stuff that everyone loves, or almost everyone. We are just at the “please explain” stage, and swat, we get wacked. That economies have been destroyed is just to be accepted. If not, we will shut off the trade, no, we are shutting off the trade. A Chinese student I know who comes to the community centre for his one hour of internet, because the university has so many blockages, just passed by, stopped and read what I wrote above and agreed, saying that you Australians do not know the level that China will go to put you in your place, as they see you as subservient, but disobedient. He said he hated the communists as much as anyone, but they are to be feared. He said Hong Kong is going to be a show case, and he is scared, as pain is coming our way, and he fears that the Aussies will turn on good guys like him. I told him that I would not let them. He knows that I am crazy.
Here is the Chinese press threatening us in full glorious black ink, that my Chinese paranoid friend found for me, with the click of a few keys:
“The US Department of Commerce on Friday added 33 Chinese companies and institutions to an economic sanctions blacklist, a clear signal that the US intends to intensify efforts to decouple from China. The move comes as China-US relations are worsening over a wide range of issues such as the coronavirus, economic decoupling and Hong Kong. While China has been trying to avoid escalating its tension with the US, such restraint on its part has not prevented bilateral relations from sliding to the lowest point in decades. On Sunday, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said that political forces in the US are taking US-China relations hostage and pushing the two countries to the brink of a "new Cold War." If the Trump administration plunges the world into a "new Cold War," forcing China to take countermeasures against the US and its allies, it would be extremely dangerous for Canberra to become a player in a diplomatic club led by the US, given Australia's high dependence on the Chinese economy. Once Australia is regarded as a supporter of the US in a "new Cold War," China-Australia economic ties will inevitably suffer a fatal blow. This is why Canberra needs to closely watch Washington's attacks which include placing Chinese firms on its sanctions backlist. This offers Canberra a window to observe whether there will be a "new Cold War" between China and the US and to reconsider its strategic relations with Washington.
