The China Syndrome Revisited

While we're here let's talk a bit about past history. Let's talk about where we are, where we were and where we want to be. Let's start with the dramatic arrest of Meng Wanzhou. I always thought she was the CEO of Huawei. Turns out she was the CFO. Her father Ren Zhengfei was the founder and CEO. That makes it even worse. Her arrest was part of a trade war.

The rival cell phone company she was involved with was accused of selling cell phones to Iran. So? Who cares? Well the United States placed Iran under sanctions. So? Who cares? The US has the authority and the jurisdiction to place any country they want under sanctions but they have no authority or jurisdiction to force any other country to obey those sanctions.

The sanctions were themselves completely hypocritical as was the arrest of Meng Wanzhou. Remember the US had just gone through a regime change. They went from Obama to Donald Trump. Obama and England signed an agreement to sell Iran nuclear reactors which would have given them the technology and the materials to make nuclear weapons. That was batsh*t crazy.

Donald Trump gets elected and says hell no. He immediately pulls out of the deal but the agreement had already been signed. After the US pulled out, England proceeded without them. So while the US is freaking out about China selling Iran cell phones, England is at that same moment planning to sell Iran nuclear reactors. That clearly showed the arrest of Meng Wanzhou was a trade war. Nothing more, nothing less. Now we see the WEF's Five Eyes demonizing China because of their Belt and Road Initiative. This is another trade war fueled with lies.

Is China capable of lying? Of course they are. That's why we have to fact check everyone.
