A lull before the storm

If Chinese leaders like Xi Jinping opines that they can overshadow the freedom of ethnic & religious minorities within or outside China either by suppression, expansion, imperialism or their debt laden BRI initiatives in poor nations, then better they should prepare and pack up for retreat rather.

China’s attempts to surpass the threshold of tolerance are now turning counter productive outside China and even voices of discontent are all time high within China. Thresholds are always powerful so better never test it or feel its consequences as being felt in Srilanka, Bangladesh, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Cambodia, Indonesia, Philipines, Malaysia, Burma and Australia. People across the globe now have no ambiguity about China’s hidden motives and corrupt mindset.

“China’s Cyber Pirates” although a new venture has sneaked into civil and defence apparatus of almost all countries even into Israel and Iran recently. There is a word of caution “Chinese is always a Chinese, whether he lives in Shanghai or New York or whether he is employee or student or practice any profession, espionage is their compulsion and national duty”.

China had given birth to Corona Virus in their lab in Wuhan followed by production and sales of ineffective vaccines across the globe as business strategy. But this too proved counter productive as a result many countries have phased out Sinovac and Sinopharam and now opting for Western or Indian vaccines being more effective.

Recently, China has welcomed Taliban regime in Afghanistan perhaps to overcome her own insecurities in the Wakhan region bordering Xinjiang. For Taliban, Islam and Sharia is paramount not Belt & Road Initiatives (BRI) as they have been accustomed to survive under harsh conditions. Let us see whether Taliban embraces Uyghurs finally or choose Chinese trap. Approximately 30,000 Uyghur Guerrillas of Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP) are camping near Wakhan to welcome Chinese.

Pressure is building up within China and is heading towards a suicidal situation. Disintegration although seems little far but reachable.
