China tries to scupper UN talk on plight of Uyghurs

"China is trying to convince UN member states to boycott an event"

--- Trying to convince sounds so polite, truly the Chinese way of doing things. So, how does politeness with PRC characeristics look like?

"We request your mission NOT to participate in this anti-China event."

--- Well, at least they didn't demand. So, there is that. & why did the CCP request non-participation?

"The aim of the event is to “discuss how the UN system, member states and civil society can support and advocate for the human rights of members of ethnic Turkic communities in Xinjiang”"

--- Ah, yes, of course. Human rights are so anti-China.


The Chinese policy that makes Uyghurs feel like hostages in their own homes

"Under the home stay policy, cadres are sent to live, work and sleep with families in Xinjiang for several days at a time, every one or two months"

--- Not much new in this article, but a good reminder of what is actually going on in Xinjiang.

"Hanging lanterns for the Chinese New Year is not something that most Uyghurs participate in. But then this entire town people had to decorate the inside of their houses along Han Chinese traditions"

--- No wonder, Han traditions are so much more civilised than barbarian Uighur ones. Isn't it logical that Uighurs then emulate that superior culture of their intru... er ... guests ... er ... relatives?

"Communist Youth league cadres from Tekes county live with relatives in the warm room, taking a selfie before sleep"

--- Isn't it wonderful if commie cadres come into your home & even sleep in the same bed with you? That truly shows how much the CCP loves you.


China Is Building Entire Villages in Another Country’s Territory

"Today all of the Menchuma Valley and most of the Beyul are controlled by China. Both are being settled. Together, they constitute 1 percent of Bhutan’s territory; if it were to lose them, it would be comparable to the United States losing Maine or Kentucky."

--- Only 1%! The benevolence of emperor Xi knows no bounds. All of Bhutan is obviously Chinese territory since ancient times.

"Menchuma Valley were shown as parts of Bhutan on official Chinese maps until at least the 1980s. They still appeared as parts of Bhutan on official Chinese tourist maps and gazetteers published in the late 1990s."

--- Clearly a criminal mistake by the publishers. They will be punished severely.

"China has offered to give up its claim to 495 square kilometers (191 square miles) of the Beyul if Thimphu will give China 269 square kilometers (104 square miles) in western Bhutan"

--- Oh, the benevolence! They want to give up territory they don't own for other territory they don't have. Logic with Chinese characteristics.

"Official rhetoric requires their residents to make “every village a fortress and every household a watchpost” and terms their residents “soldiers without uniforms”—their primary task is to guard China’s borders."

--- The CCP uses similar strategies used in the South China Sea also on its land borders. It's time for countries in the region to wake up & work together to stop Chinese encroachment.


Chinese scientists discussed weaponising SARS coronaviruses in 2015: Report

"The document revealed that Chinese military scientists were discussing the weaponisation of SARS coronaviruses five years before the Covid-19 pandemic.
[...] It begins to firm up the possibility that what we have here is the accidental release of a pathogen for military use"

--- Simply a totally hypothetical discussion. The CCP & its scientists would clearly never ever actually try to develop bio weapons. As we all know, the CCP is much too philanthropic to even think about WMD's.


NASA criticizes China's handling of rocket re-entry as debris lands near Maldives

"China is failing to meet responsible standards regarding their space debris
landing just west of the Maldives.
It was unclear if any debris had landed on the atoll nation. "

--- But nothing happened! So we were right all along. Chabuduo.

Tesla Faces Backlash in China from Viral Video

"Yu said China lures a foreign enterprise “into China with initial preferential tax and regulatory treatments. Once you are hooked in China, and have gained initial success, the CCP would not hesitate to use your investments in China as a leverage to force you to comply with a whole list of demands, outright or subtle, including sharing proprietary technologies and knowledge, prohibiting transfer of funds out of China, curtailing your market share inside China and possibly divulging critical national security secrets in your company’s other operations with the U.S. government such as the SpaceX project.”"

--- & some companies never learn.

Raketentrümmer in Ozean gestürzt

"Die Befürchtungen waren offenbar unbegründet: Trümmer einer chinesischen Trägerrakete sind nach dem Wiedereintritt in den Indischen Ozean gestürzt, ohne Schäden zu verursachen."

--- ARD-Logik der chinesischen Art? Es ist nichts passiert, also konnte eigentlich auch nichts passieren.


China warnt UN-Staaten vor geplanter Veranstaltung zum Umgang mit Uiguren

"China hat die Mitgliedsstaaten der Vereinten Nationen aufgefordert, nicht an der von Deutschland (EU), den USA und Großbritannien geplanten virtuellen Veranstaltung zum Thema der unterdrückten Minderheit der Uiguren in Xinjiang teilzunehmen"

--- Geht ja auch nicht, daß bei der UN für die KPCh unangenehme Themen angesprochen werden. Nur Lobhudelei ist erlaubt.


Hier baut Ägypten in Rekordzeit eine neue Hauptstadt – mit kräftiger Hilfe aus China

"ein Stadtpark, der dreimal so groß werden soll wie New Yorks Central Park"

--- Sicher eine gute Idee, einen Riesenpark in einem Wüstenstaat mit permanentem Wassermangel zu bauen.

"Federführend ist Chinas State Construction Engineering Corporation, die hunderte chinesische Arbeiter nach Ägypten geschickt hat, um das schmucke Business-Viertel in Rekordzeit hochzuziehen."

--- Wie überraschend. Chinesisches Geld geht an chinesische Firmen, die mit chinesischen Arbeitern Projekte im Ausland erledigen. Alles natürlich nur, um diesen armen, unterentwickelten Ländern zu helfen.
