If this is the way China is going to treat the Biden Administration and its various officials we are in a world of trouble.
It started back in March when Chinese Politburo member Yang Jiechi was with Secretary of State Antony Blinken and White House national security adviser Jake Sullivan in Alaska.
“So let me say here that, in front of the Chinese side, the United States does not have the qualification to say that it wants to speak to China from a position of strength,” Jiechi said to the faces of the two administration officials. “The U.S. side was not even qualified to say such things even 20 years or 30 years back, because this is not the way to deal with the Chinese people,” The Washington Examiner reported.
“And the United States has its style, United States-style democracy, and China has the Chinese-style democracy,” he said. “It is important for the United States to change its own image and to stop advancing its own democracy in the rest of the world. Many people within the United States actually have little confidence in the democracy of the United States, and they have various views regarding the government of the United States.”
Interesting, we cannot recall them speaking with such bravado when Donald Trump was in the White House.
Then, last week, it was reported by Reuters that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin cannot get a meeting with his Chinese counterparts.
U.S. Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin has so far been unable to speak with China’s top general despite multiple attempts to set up talks, U.S. defense officials said on Friday.
Relations between China and the United States have grown increasingly tense, with the world’s two largest economies clashing over everything from Taiwan and China’s human rights record to its military activity in the South China Sea.
Despite the tensions and heated rhetoric, U.S. military officials have long sought to have open lines of communication with their Chinese counterparts to be able to mitigate potential flare-ups or deal with any accidents.
A second U.S. official said there was a debate in President Joe Biden’s administration about whether Austin should speak with vice chairman of China’s Central Military Commission, Xu Qiliang, or Chinese Defense Minister Wei Fenghe.
And if China does not respect us, then the recent report that said they are preparing for a biological WWIII should make everyone concerned.
A new, bombshell, report suggests that China has been preparing for World War II and is planning on using biological weapons, like coronavirus, to win the potential war.
The paper said biological weapons will be “the core weapon for victory” in the war which discusses the perfect time to unleash the weapon and documents the impact it would have on “the enemy’s medical system,” The Daily Mail reported.
This latest evidence that Beijing considered the military potential of SARS coronaviruses from as early as 2015 has also raised fresh fears over the cause of Covid-19, with some officials still believing the virus could have escaped from a Chinese lab.
The dossier by People’s Liberation Army scientists and health officials examined the manipulation of diseases to make weapons ‘in a way never seen before’.
Senior government figures say it ‘raises major concerns’ over the intentions of those close to Chinese President Xi Jinping amid growing fears about the country’s lack of regulation over its activity in laboratories.
The authors of the document insist that a third world war ‘will be biological’, unlike the first two wars which were described as chemical and nuclear respectively.
Referencing research which suggested the two atomic bombs dropped on Japan forced them to surrender, and bringing about the end of WWII, they claim bioweapons will be ‘the core weapon for victory’ in a third world war.
The report says that the weapon should be released at dawn, dusk or during cloudy weather as sunlight, rain or snow can negatively affect the particles.
It also says that a bio attack would cause a surge at the enemy’s hospitals which would “could cause the enemy’s medical system to collapse.”
British Lt Col Thomas Georg John Tugendhat, a conservative, said “his document raises major concerns about the ambitions of some of those who advise the top party leadership. Even under the tightest controls these weapons are dangerous.”
Hamish de Bretton-Gordon, a chemical weapons expert, said “China has thwarted all attempts to regulate and police its laboratories where such experimentation may have taken place.”
The news came from a new book titled “What Really Happened in Wuhan” and was first reported this week by “The Australian.”
“Following developments in other scientific fields, there have been major advances in the delivery of biological agents,” the document, titled “New Species of Man-Made Viruses as Genetic Bioweapons” said.
“For example, the new-found ability to freeze-dry micro-organisms has made it possible to store biological agents and aerosolise them during attacks,” it said.
