It is not fair to make comparison between Zhengzhou and German. 552.5mm rainfall totals in the 24 hours for Zhengzhou and compare with 154mm rainfall totals within 24 hours for German. I don't think any city on earth can handle 552.5mm rainfall within 24 hours.

Large swaths of western Germany saw 24-hour rainfall totals between 100 and 150 millimeters (3.9-5.9 inches), which represent more than a month's worth of rainfall in this region, according to CNN meteorologist Brandon Miller.

Cologne, in North Rhine-Westphalia, recorded 154 millimeters (6 inches) of rainfall in the 24 hours to Thursday morning, which is nearly double its monthly average for July of 87 millimeters.

While I dont agree with the sentiments of the article, it would be helpful if we know who the next successor will be. In general, CPC convention is to groom leader 5-6 years in advance.
Do you think that we might see a potential successor in 2023?
So with Xi getting a 3rd term, a successor will be chosen and then on 2027(2028?) the successor could take a top position (e.g President), and then on 2032 (2033), Xi will step down from the other top 2 positions (e.g CMC, CPC General Secretary)

I dont think this would be a problem for Xi as, from what I have seen so far, he is more interested in the Party than his predecessors. So leave the President position(2027) to the new guy and then focus on the Party to ensure that his ideological work remains strong and that the foundations of China's political party will be healthy

To be fair. Although in Germany, they received less rainfall. It is not the rainfall itself that did the damage. It's the accumulation of the rainfall into their river system. The river systems simply couldn't cope.

I've friends living there on the Rhine, and I've been there many times . It's quite sad it's a beautiful place.

I don't know how a 19 years has a green card when both his parents reside in China. Anyway, he probably would only get a few weeks of jail time if he went back to China. Now he needs to be on the run and never return to China. MSM is making this as some kind of big deal. So much drama.
