    Many technological companies invested a large sum of money in the election of Joe Biden, and his new technological budget is in order to produce large amount of chips in the USA, it is just a competition among capitalist to monopolize the market of electronics, even more, many car lots are empty because they can not produce automobiles without chips, the old days of mechanicals car are gone, and with the emerge of electoral and hybrid car they are going to need more chips

    So it looks like we are heading for WW3, and China won’t fail Russia over Ukraine, because it requires Russia as an ally in the coming conflagration.

    I’m not so sure China is 100% behind Russia.

    It appears to be qualified support and it shows a lot of adherence to the UN economic sanctions against Russia by China, at least in public.

    The China South Sea and Taiwan appear to be the trigger issues, not Ukraine. The longer the war, the more China may benefit from Russia’s discounted oil.

    But any reading of the build-up to war between Japan and the USA cannot avoid the embargo on key raw materials to Japan by USA.

    It doesn’t seem real right now, that soon we will be dying horribly and everything about us destroyed. I still watch old movies on TV, I still read, I still function at home. It is the weather I like: sunny and crisp.

    I seem to have buried in the back of my mind my biggest fear. Yet it comes to the fore a few minutes after waking up in the morning, and every time the news sounds more menacing. Then I have to stop reading and go to bed.

    But still it doesn’t seem real.

    If it happens I want it instant and without warning. I don’t want a govt announcement or text. I don’t want to be regimented or made to take anti-radiation medicine, be forced to leave my home and my cats and be herded by police and soldiers.

    I was making a parallel with WW2, on how the USA provoked a war with Japan.

    “I don’t want to be regimented or made to take anti-radiation medicine, be forced to leave my home and my cats and be herded by police and soldiers.”

    No chance the cats will be herded 🙂

    Australia says it will continue to provide military training, conduct joint exercises and export weapons to Indonesia despite increased violence and allegations of human rights abuses in West Papua.

    US-funded upgrade of Tindal airbase in Northern Territory will allow it to house up to six B-52s.

    The new aircraft parking apron was one of many capital infrastructure works aiming to support US force posture initiatives, alongside upgrades to airfields, fuel storage facilities, accommodation and training areas.

    US President Joe Biden told reporters on Monday he didn’t see China “invading” Taiwan any time soon, after he had a “direct and straightforward” meeting with Chinese leader Xi Jinping. The two leaders met face to face in Bali, Indonesia, on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

    “I do not think there’s any imminent attempt [on the part] of China to invade Taiwan,” Biden said at a short press conference afterward, adding, “We want cross-strait issues to be resolved.”

    The US leader had brought up Beijing’s “coercive and increasingly aggressive actions” towards Taipei but told Xi the US policy towards Taiwan had not changed, according to the White House readout of the meeting. According to US media, however, Congress has been preparing to apply to Taiwan the same mechanisms Washington has used to arm Ukraine over the past year.

    During their meeting in Indonesia on Monday, US President Joe Biden and Chinese leader Xi Jinping said the two countries should cooperate better to meet the world’s expectations and agreed that nuclear war should never be fought, according to the White House.

    In brief remarks before the bilateral discussion, Biden said the two countries needed to show the world they can manage their differences and “find ways to work together on urgent global issues,” including climate change and “food insecurity.”

    “History is the best textbook. We should take it as a mirror and let it guide the future,” Xi said, adding that current relations between the US and China are “not in the fundamental interests of our two countries and peoples,” and that the international community expects both leaders to improve that.

    “A statesman should think about and know where to lead his country. He should also think about and know how to get along with other countries and the wider world,” Xi said.

    The Chinese capitalist like good ‘prostitute” will continue selling cheap commodities to the USA and buying cheap petroleum from Russia, and they are not going to risk their huge market for a junior partner
