5. Time to push all the fentanyl into USA

This translation is incorrect and misleading. Specifically, the "calls with leaders" should be "calls between the theater commanders (such as calls between the ETC of PLA and the PACOM of the US, I think)".

And it is not to end all of them. Only the first 3 military-related items are cancelled/ended. The rest are on hold.

Here is the original list announce by China:

Watching Taiwanese so-called President speech eerily sounds like it was written by and American, and for an American audience. The whole we will not provoke or fire the first shot, but we will defend our blah blah...I really think that Taiwan is working in cahoots behind the scene with the U.S. and this whole shit show reminded me of how the west pushed the Ruskies to do their invasion of Ukraine...






Just look at how the White House, with the State Department's Blinken making a speech doing his best to give an impression to the gullible idiots that it's Beijing who's been making provocative moves, even reckless move numbing the already overwhelmed American population with the usual propaganda to manufacture their consent for conflict.

John Kirby stole my line. I am wondering if he knew that the Wanwan secessionists are well known among Chinese globally as the "frog trapped in a well (井底之蛙)".

白宫官员声称解放军环台湾岛军演是“提高水温煮青蛙”​

在当天回答记者提问时,柯比引用类似于“温水煮青蛙”的说法,将解放军的此次环台湾岛军事演习形容为“提高水温煮青蛙”,即将军事强度升高并保持在一个更高的水平,以便于以后能够更频繁地、更定期地进行这种军事操作。

Probably has to do with how utterly unlikeable the western leaders are in general and how all of them could be lined up and shot and the world will be a better place for doing so. Really, it’s that bad and quite frankly since the USA has made it clear they want to have Russia and China balkanised and have the people utterly destroyed and flung into poverty due to how heartless they are, well it is both the duty of Russia and China to make sure that by the end of 2025, they must do the same if not worse to the USA, for the good of the world. It’s simply that bad right now

PARIS — France declared Friday that it was in the grip of its “most severe” drought, one that has also desiccated large areas of Europe this summer,

“This drought is the most severe recorded in our country,” Élisabeth Borne, the French prime minister,

on Friday.

Ms. Borne said France had received insufficient rainfall and had been hit in recent weeks by an “accumulation of successive heat waves,” increasing demand for water even as precious reserves evaporated in seemingly endless days of sweltering heat. She urged the French to be “very vigilant” about their water usage.

In Britain, bans on using outdoor hoses were announced in two parts of the country this week after England experienced its driest July since 1935. In Spain, towns in Andalusia have restricted water usage as well.

In Germany, environmentalists expressed worry over a growing number of lakes and rivers that have dried up in the center of the country, threatening the survival of fish and other wildlife.

And in Italy, 2022 will be remembered as the driest year since 1800, “at least until now,” said Ramona Magno, of

“The drought persists, and the situation is getting worse as months pass without rain,” she said, especially in Italy’s northwestern regions where the drought classification has fluctuated between extreme and severe, and has already affected

In northeast Italy, saltwater from the Adriatic Sea has been flowing back into the Po River, putting agriculture in the fertile Po Delta at risk.

Reality Checks in, Decisions Reversed by June

On June 7, Railbridge (based in Holland) reversed its decision referenced above and allowed operations for customers through Russia. In a

, it stated: “Despite of the unchanged situation in Ukraine we decided to re-open the Northern route for more verticals than only food, medicine and humanitarian goods.”

“We decided to re-open the Northern Route for companies who have no other option to overcome their logistics challenges,” it stated. The reasons they say publicly were the grounds for reversing the decision were companies in Europe facing diverse supply chain issues. “These issues have a negative impact on production, tradelines, companies, jobs and humans”, it correctly noted. Another important reason is that customers who used the Northern Route and rail before are now forced to choose air freight. Not only is air freight much more expensive but produces huge CO2 amounts (emissions 72 times higher than rail) which they must compensate for financially. The cost and even the travel time of air freight itself have increased, because European airlines are also banned from Russian air space, thus are forced to take longer alternative routes. Only

are using Russian air space on route to Europe, giving them a greater competitive edge.

According to another European company we spoke to, European customers, especially from the Netherlands and Germany “were begging to reopen the Northern Route”, because all their supplies were declining dramatically. They were also complaining that the sea route is now taking much longer than the usual 45-50 days. This was caused by the outbreak of COVID in Shanghai and the reduction of operations in its port and other Chinese ports. Many customers also complain about the continuous delays on the Southern Route / Middle Route.
The other reason for reopening, is that other shipping companies like Maersk never stopped using the Northern Route, according to one company’s information officer.
As a reaction to the reversal of the decision of boycott of Russian railways, some companies are now receiving many orders from customers from EU countries, especially Germany, to ship through the Northern Route. The volume is bound to increase in July and continue through the fall and winter. However, forwarders prefer to have one customer loading a whole block-train at a time, which is advantageous to large-volume customers.
