Jimmy5IA: At the end of the day you can´t trust any government bullshit from any country, get yourself a few tinnys and a sheila and live in the bush forever


Yep, agreed. Stories like China being urged to seek revenge is bullshit. Being married to a Chinese lady and watching their news, 99.99999% of it is the same sort of stuff that we have. Terrorism, boosting their economy, weather events, their military spending and the economy/affordability of living. They even cover in more detail things that happen here that get 'glossed over' by our own American focussed media.

Funding for OBOR initiative currently at US$240b

Funding for the One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, China’s game-changing development plan to link the country with the African, Asian and European continents, has gained some traction with accumulated pledges of about US$240bil to date.



India And Japan Join Forces To Counter China And Build Their Own New Silk Road

India and Japan are at the forefront of this movement, devising a mutual vision which could be labeled the ‘other’ New Silk Road.

Just days after Xi Jinping’s epic Belt and Road Forum in May, India’s Prime Minister Modi unveiled a vision to counter the international ambitions of China at a meeting of the African Development Bank (AfDB) in Gujarat.

India, Russia, and Iran are busy at work putting together the North-South Transport Corridor, a multimodal route that goes from the west coast of India all the way to St.Petersburg, Russia.



China's Belt and Road Comes to Nepal
The Belt and Road could help Nepal reduce its economic dependence on India.

Thanks to a recently signed memorandum of understanding between Nepal and China, Beijing’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been discussed as a possible alternative gateway for Nepali access to China, Central Asia, and Eastern Europe. Nepal, so far connected to world trade through the southern route and India, has not been able to fully utilize its potential due to infrastructural clogs across the border, including lack of road, rail, and port facilities.




In May 1995, Chinese occupying forces abducted six year-old Panchen Lama (Gedhun Choekyi Nyima) from his home in Tibet.
The child has not been seen or heard from since.

Gedhun Choekyi Nyima is recognised by the Dalai Lama as the reincarnation of the Panchen Lama, one of the highest-ranking spiritual leaders in Tibet.

Since his disappearance, China has repeatedly ignored demands to confirm his safety and wellbeing.

And tonight Trump has something to say about North Korea in the United Nations

United Nations acted with bias and in breach of its own charter when it took sides with the US and deployed in 1950. It seems out of order for United Nations to mediate in dispute with North Korea because:

League of Nations, the forerunner of the United Nations was established in 1919 “to promote international cooperation and to achieve peace and security.” However, after failing to prevent the Second World War, the League of Nations was disbanded. ... The UN came into existence on 24 October 1945, in order to prevent another such conflict. Tonight there is a possibility world could be driven by flunky's using UN platform to start WW3. Clearly because UN in first instance acted against NK Russia and China it cannot be said to be impartial promoting peace and security by starting WW3.

The name "United Nations", was coined by United States President Franklin D. Roosevelt was first used in the Declaration by United Nations of 1 January 1942, during the Second World War, when representatives of 26 nations pledged their Governments to continue fighting together against the Axis Powers. Its purpose was to insure there wouldn't be another World War.

However the United Nations Forces in the Korean War. Following an invasion of South Korea by North Korea, the then twenty-one member nations of the United Nations (UN) committed themselves to support South Korea which was not then even a member nation of the UN. A clear bias and combatant in the ensuring conflict.

June 25, 1950, the Korean War began when North Korea, supported by the Soviet Union and China, invaded South Korea. Kim II Sung went to see Mao Tse Tung, the leader of China, to get his support.
The trigger for the war was when, in 1950, Syngman Rhee boasted that he was going to attack North Korea. It was a good enough excuse – the North Koreans invaded South Korea, Syngman Rhee was a South Korean politician, Syngman Rhee was South Korea’s first president in 1948.Dr. Syngman Rhee (1875–1965) was an American-educated Korean exile who returned to his country to become the first President of South Korea in 1948.

Lets all hope something positive some how comes out of the corrupt United Nation talk feast tonight, lets hope Donald J Trump has enough grey matter in his attic to offer aid instead of war to NKdoh

From Pakistan interesting story: -
The new bloc may comprise Russia, China, India, Brazil, South Africa, Pakistan, Iran, the Central Asian States, Afghanistan, Syria, Turkey, Cuba, Venezuela, Indonesia, Malaysia and Iraq. A number of other states may also join it. The question is: will such a bloc work? The answer is in the affirmative. The bloc has the two largest markets of the world – India and China. Militarily, it will have four nuclear states – Pakistan, India, China and Russia. And the Chinese army is the largest in the world while India, Pakistan, Russia, Turkey and Iran are also militarily powerful states. Some of the largest countries by territory are also part of this proposed new bloc. The states of this new bloc are also rich in natural resources.

This thread was created Thu Aug 4, 2016 5:42 AM AEST at a time when a Chinese newspaper urges country to declare WAR on Australia

Today (lightly edited) finally Turnbull says Australia will 'stand up' to China as foreign influence row heats up and finally Turnbull started standing his ground on Saturday, using strong language to reject criticism and maintain now there was evidence of foreign interference. Turnbull said Labor senator Sam Dastyari – who has twice stepped down from the Senate over China-related controversies – was a “classic case”.
Today's bla bla also included:
Switching between Mandarin and English, Turnbull then said: “Modern China was founded in 1949 with these words: ‘The Chinese people have stood up’. It was an assertion of sovereignty, it was an assertion of pride.”

“And we stand up and so we say, the Australian people stand up.”

Like today in my opinion he is actually stopping undermining Australian Defence, which the whole time myself and others have been saying he has been doing,

Today he also has some clown making falsh, dishonest statements covering up Australia's support directed towards creating a WW3. Turnbul I beleive along with many other politicians, have actively been undermining Australia's defence and now he attempts to cover up his long standing support for Chinese government,

You only need to read the posts in this thread to see what he is trying to pull off today. In my opinion he is a lying prick and should be aware what he is trying to pull off.

We are facing increased global disorder characterized by decline in the long standing rules based international order
creating a security environment more complex and volatile than any we have experienced in recent memory



Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Friday that America is facing "growing threats" from China and Russia, and warned that the US military's advantages have eroded in recent years.
"We face growing threats from revisionist powers as different as China and Russia, nations that seek to create a world consistent with their authoritarian models," Mattis said.

"Our military is still strong, yet our competitive edge has eroded in every domain of warfare - air, land, sea, space and cyberspace - and is continually eroding," he added.

Republican Senator John McCain, who chairs the powerful Senate Armed Services Committee that helps oversee the Pentagon, welcomed Mattis's strategy for getting "the big decisions right."

"A new era of great power competition has emerged, and this strategy prioritizes that reality," he said in a statement.



On Friday, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis outlined a new national defense strategy. Moving beyond the rambling, soft-power utopianism of the Obama administration's defense strategies, Mattis declared that "we are emerging from a period of strategic atrophy" and must "pursue urgent change at significant scale."

The new strategy is an excellent one: precise, intellectually robust and centered in the single-minded pursuit of greater lethality. Yet Mattis' was no warmonger's speech.

"We expect European allies to fulfill their commitments to increase defense and modernization spending to bolster the alliance in face of our shared security concerns." To this end, Mattis wants U.S. allies to embrace greater defense spending and modernization commitments (the modernization reference refers to the U.S. concern that foreign allies don't simply inflate their defense budgets with wasteful spending on ever-more personnel).

That said, this new strategy also puts meat on the bones of warfighting preparedness.

Recognizing a rising China's 1930s style imperialism in the South and East China Seas, Mattis called for strengthening U.S. capability sharing with Indo-Pacific partners (think Australia, India, and Japan as the three keys here). And linking Russia to China's threat complexion; describing the two nations as "revisionist powers", the strategy describes the revisionists' intent to gain "veto authority over other nations' economic, diplomatic, and security decisions." That is unacceptable, Mattis says, because it fundamentally undercuts the foundation of U.S.-led democratic order.
