There is a rising feeling of anger against China. Appearing like the symptoms of chicken pox, all over the world. I'm just posting 4 pieces of news with a common thread from different parts of the world that caught my eye. But they all do point to a common issue. Without mentioning HONG KONG.

What is China doing?? A sudden grab for world domination while the world is occupied with a virus that originated from... China?


But CCTV footage seized by police, and seen by CNN, revealed a brutal afternoon of carnage.

At midday on Sunday, May 24, three Zambian attackers with iron bars entered the grounds of a Chinese-owned textile warehouse in Lusaka. Police said they were pretending to be potential customers.
But the trio did not want to do business.

As Australian National University academic Brendan Taylor argues, the island dispute is about much more than contested rocks or their resources. It is about Washington’s place in the evolving Asian order, China’s expansion and the tensions between two of Asia’s “oldest and most inextricable” rivals.

The question is not whether China, now the target of a full-court press by America, would want to challenge Japan over the islands. The question is when, and how? This is what keeps Japanese (and American) policymakers awake at night.
