Tiananmen: China rebukes Pompeo on 30th anniversary of protests https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-48508202
Mr Pompeo criticised China's human rights record and called for it to reveal how many died in the crackdown.
A Chinese embassy spokesman in Washington DC said his comments were "an affront to the Chinese people".
In 1989, a large political protest in Beijing triggered a brutal clampdown by the communist authorities.

An estimated 1 million Hong Kong residents take to the streets over a new extradition law with the mainland. Now that is a protest.

As much as I agree with their protests, it'll do little for them. There's nothing HK citizens can do as they are now a part of China and have no recourse.

I did not know there was such a law......

China's intelligence law looms over EU 5G safeguards: official https://reut.rs/2Sqr7oY
BRUSSELS (Reuters) - The European Union cannot ignore China's National Intelligence Law, which requires Chinese citizens to support state information-gathering, as Brussels seeks rules for super-fast mobile networks, a senior EU official said on Friday.

They've been fighting over those rocks off and on since the 1950's. I don't know why it's such a big deal. Too many chest puffing neanderthals, I guess.

Good grief.

With what's going on in Hong Kong, and the current state of affairs of China/Taiwan, I get a feeling something terrible is brewing.

It's about to pop off.

There are reports of troops massing on the mainland at the port. I think it's a distraction for NK or NK is a distraction for this. I can't be certain with the symbiosis of the two regimes. They are exceptionally hard to read.

Plus this earlier today......

https://www.reuters.com/article/us-a...-idUSKCN1UQ1HL
BANGKOK (AP) China on Wednesday warned outside nations against any attempt to sow discord between Beijing and Southeast Asian countries by playing up disputes over the South China Sea, saying differences can be resolved peacefully between the affected parties themselves.

I believe I've mentioned on more than one occasion that the Spratly Islands are ultimately going to be the cause of WW3.

Mark my words....

I concur. And might I add, sooner rather than later. The whole place is a powder keg.
