Iran Conducts Joint Naval Drills With China and Russia In Gulf Of Oman

Holding its own against periodic USG, British, and Israeli invasion threats, Iran has begun conducting joing naval exercises with Russia and China in the Gulf of Oman (archived, archived). After a series of tit for tat ship captures that resolved in Iran's favor, USG threats of the sort that lead to Dubya's Iraq misadventure and Hussein Bahamas' collected "Spring" misadventures appear increasingly empty when it comes to Iran.

Chile Cancels APEC Summit Over Transit Fare Rebellion

Chile has canceled the APEC summit they were scheduled to host after persistent riots erupted following a transit fare hike (archived). APEC is not to be confused with ASEAN, a reliable source of lulz during the Hussein Bahamas administration. China was tentatively scheduled to undertake some sort of negotiation with the USG at the canceled summit.

China Condemns "Foreign" Backed "Color Revolutions" Around The World

Chinese defense minister Wei Fenghe, while declining to explicitly name the USG, condemned the USG's instigation of "color revolutions" and unrest around the world (archived).

Wanton interference in other countries’ affairs will never win. Interfering in other countries’ domestic affairs, instigating a color revolution or even attempts to subvert the legitimate governments of other countries are the real causes of wars and unrest in different regions

As the USG's once servicable capacity to conduct military interventions has collapsed, formenting unrest through the US State Department has become the last remaining threat in the USG regime change toolkit. It hasn't been working very well.

Former Danzhou Mayor Relieved Of 13.5 Tons Of Gold and 268 Billion Yuan After Anti-Corruption Investigation

Ongoing anti-corruption investigations in China have apparently lead to the arrest of former Danzou mayor and former Communist Party secretary Zhang Qi (archived, archived). Investigators reportedly found 13.5 tons of gold and a cash stash summing to 268 billion yuan in a concealed basement at the communist's home. At presently advertised exchange rates, these holdings put the recently seized fortune above 38 billion USD and would place Zhang Qi at 19th place on the Forbes rich list above Alibaba's Jack Ma and Tencent's Ma Huateng.

Google Bans Political Discussions Among Employees As It Supports Apparent USG Color Revolution In Hong Kong

USG surveillance contractor and social engineering organ Google has banned politcal discussion among employees just as the firm is throwing its support behind an apparent USG backed "color revolution" in Hong Kong (archived, archived). The substantial language and cultural differences between the Mandarin speaking mainland and Cantonese speaking former British rent-a-port have been a reliable source of tensions between the two while the structural barriers between the Chinese languages and European languages make any publication claiming to outline the substance of the disputes fueling Hong Kong's present unrest for you suspect.

Then again, if one looks at the trends and compares the incredible development the mainland is experiencing versus the relative stagnation of Hong Kong's modern democracy with the "One Country, Two Systems" experiment, one could suspect some jealousy or resentment are at play.

Harley-Davidson Partners With China’s Qianjiang Motorcycle Amid Shrinking US Market

Harley-Davidson announced they are working with China’s Qianjiang Motorcycle in order to build smaller displacement bikes (archived). Harley has seen a substantial decline in sales as the US market continues getting poorer and older (archived). At the same time their product line centered around the peculiarities of American recreational riding is failing to gain traction in the international market which favors useful bikes capable of agile urban navigation. The first announced product from this partnership will still have a displacement of 338 cc, well above the 125 to 250 cc range favored by most riders worldwide.

China Preparing To Enable Extraditions From Hong Kong To Mainland

The Chinese government is weighing a measure that would enable courts in Hong Kong to extradite suspects to mainland China for trial (archived). This move would represent a small step towards greater integration between Cantonese speaking Hong Kong and the Mandarin speaking mainland which share a common national identity under different systems of government. USG affiliated outlets are presenting the measure as a "grave violation" of the agreement that transitioned colonial stewardship of the territory from British to Chinese hands though the decision to extradite or not would still be undertaken in the Hong Kong courts system.

The Anglophone outrage highlights the always interesting problem of enforcement. What fleet and shipyards can the Anglophones act out their rage? What sanctions can the deindustrialized Anglophone economies apply to the economy that appears to have won manufacturing?

Sorry for your loss.

Chinese Ministries Issue Advisories Cautioning Against Travel To US Over Crime And Law Enforcement Hazards To Chinese Citizens

The Chinese foreign ministry and ministry of culture and tourism have issued travel advisories for Chinese citizens considering visits to the US (archived, archived, archived). Both advisories list many of the normal reasons other countries advise caution when traveling to the US including dangers presented by defects of culture and high urban crime rates. The culture and tourism ministry's advisory however goes further in highlighting the hazards posed by US "law enforcement" including the arbitrary application of laws.
