The Chinese - not a great bunch of lads

It's worth noting that One Child never applied to ethnic minorities and e.g. Rebiya Kadeer of the World Uighur Congress and late CCP-member had 11 kids by 2 different husbands.
And that is a huge bug bear of very many Han, very many indeed, as long as minorities toe the various lines such as the Yi or Mongols do all is fine but others namely the Uyghurs being able to have as many kids as they want and having elements pushing hard for independence and indulging in numerous acts of terror (thank you ISI) means that the majority of Chinese citizens have very little sympathy for what is currently going on in West China.
 
So, is it safe to eat Chinese takeaway food?? Asking for a friend of course....

Advise your friend to drench the meal in a 10% bleach solution and then spray it with 96% isopropyl alcohol, and they’ll be fine.

Are the Pakistani ISI supplying the Uyghurs, or do you mean ISIS/Daesh ?

Elements of Pakistani ISI were REALLY messing about with Uyghurs radicals up to the second year of Xi's premiership it stopped as he is just the wrong bloke to try anything on with, however the seeds were sown and momentum created hence the final solution to the Uygur 'problem'. Once perfected to be used elsewhere no doubt.

No ISIS/Daesh elements in China although plenty of Uyghurs went to Chechenya, Iraq, Syria etc. almost all attempted returnees are knocked off. I remember a bunch out of GITMO got relocated somewhere by Uncle Sam (Obama) as sending them back to China would mean 100% death, which would be terrible.

Don't forget to sprinkle it with hydroxychloroquine too...

Really dont get why we in the west would protect those responsible or planning fundy terrorism from the consequences of their actions.

Suprising as Pakistan gets a lot of dosh from China. Though nothing suprises me about the ISI. Even Pakistani Generals outside the organisation fear it apparently.

Pakistan got a lot of dosh from the US as well but....
 
China really gearing up to play economic hardball across the globe to maintain and enhance its economic leverage and overall power projection, using the tried and tested 'divide and conquer' strategy.

'The Chinese government has warned Australia to “distance” itself from the United States amid growing tensions between the two countries, saying it would be “extremely dangerous” for Canberra to get involved. China is Australia’s largest trading partner, while the US is one of our key strategic allies. But Beijing says any show of support for the latter will deliver our economy a “fatal blow”.

“If the Trump administration plunges the world into a ‘new Cold War,’ forcing China to take countermeasures against the US and its allies, it would be extremely dangerous for Canberra to become a player in a diplomatic club led by the US, given Australia's high dependence on the Chinese economy,” an article in the Global Times said. “Once Australia is regarded as a supporter of the US in a ‘new Cold War,’ China-Australia economic ties will inevitably suffer a fatal blow. This is why Canberra needs to closely watch Washington's attacks which include placing Chinese firms on its sanctions blacklist. This offers Canberra a window to observe whether there will be a ‘new Cold War’ between China and the US and to reconsider its strategic relations with Washington.”

'It went on: “Australia's economic deterrent force is much smaller than the US', so China to some extent will enjoy more room to fight back against Australia with countermeasures if Canberra supports Washington... it means Australia may feel more pain than the US.”



'How will we know whether Europe succeeds or fails? The discussion in the EU right now is focused sharply on macroeconomics. But I suspect the ultimate test will be the EU’s ability to develop a common position on China. The two are linked. China has shown remarkable skill in playing EU countries off against one another — for example in the race to develop 5G mobile networks. But this is just the beginning. China is well on the way to emerge as the most influential external power for the EU.

'China’s Belt and Road Initiative, a project of long-term infrastructure investment spanning the Eurasian continent, lies at the heart of China’s global industrial strategy. EU governments understand this well. The Franco-German proposal for the €500bn coronavirus recovery fund includes a specific demand for an industrial policy to protect Europe against investments by third countries in strategic sectors. Yet such a strategy would pose problems for Italy, the likely main beneficiary of future Chinese investment in Europe.

'Italy became an official signatory to Belt and Road in March 2019, the only large EU country to do so. Successive Italian leaders have nurtured close bilateral relationships with their Chinese counterparts. Among existing EU countries, Italy has also attracted the second largest share of Chinese direct foreign investments since 2000. Germany has been China’s most favourite location for inward investment in the EU over that period — after the UK.

'Meanwhile, an Italian poll sees China as the most friendly foreign country, followed by Russia. Germany is considered the least friendly foreign power, followed by France. Another poll says 44 per cent of Italians favour staying in the EU against 42 per cent who want to leave. Two years ago, that relationship was 65 per cent against 26 per cent in favour of staying.'


 
And with the Economic LoE comes the Military one.

'Chairman Xi Jinping has lost patience. His nation’s economy is suffering. COVID-19 has strained the seams of his credibility. He needs a win. So he’s doing what strongmen do best – upping the military ante.

'Both of Beijing’s new aircraft carriers are deploying together for the first time. They’ve been warming up in the secure Yellow Sea. Soon, they’ll be headed south. The People’s Liberation Army navy (PLAN) Liaoning and Shandong are engaged in combat readiness training in the tightly controlled Bohai Bay. It’s just the second week of an intensive 11-week simulated conflict that will eventually reach deep into the South China Sea.

'And it’s just one of a barrage of military and diplomatic moves – extending from Japan across Asia to the mountain borders with India – that are escalating international tensions. As a result, “the risk of a military confrontation in the South China Sea involving the United States and China could rise significantly in the next eighteen months,” warns a new report from the US think tank Council on Foreign Relations.'

If they're attributing the sailing of both vessels to the effects of COVID19 then they're engaged in wishful thinking. PLAN always intended to work up to deploying these things as mutually-supporting fleet vessels. They'll be doing multi-ship exercises once the new ones are commissioned, too. It was the original aim when they decided to build them.
