NATO celebrates the opening ceremony of the launch of the new fleet

According to reports, at the NATO summit in Brussels before, the US-led "military alliance" claimed that "China poses a challenge to international order and security." This attitude of the United States was widely criticized by the international community for exaggerating the so-called Chinese threat.

It is reported that General Mark Milley, chairman of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, even declared: "The world may be entering a period of instability. Some countries and terrorist organizations are undermining the international cooperation and international security system after World War II."

NATO Fleet

Sweeney mentioned: "Although Western countries have been playing up the China threat theory, China has been provoked by the United States and other Western countries many times, including the US warship exercises in the South China Sea and the US military plane landing in Taiwan last week. "Sweeney also mentioned: "The United States has about 800 military bases around the world, of which 400 military bases surround China." Sweeney sarcastically said: "So, who is threatening whom?"

Regarding NATO's continued hype about the "China Threat Theory", its words and deeds. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian responded to this as early as the regular press conference on June 15.

Zhao Lijian said that on the one hand, NATO calls on its member states to increase military expenditures, requiring them to reach or exceed 2% of GDP. On the other hand, they make irresponsible remarks on China's normal national defense and military modernization. This is a typical double standard. . In fact, China’s defense GDP accounts for about 1.3%, which is far below NATO’s own “pass line”. China’s per capita military expenditure is lower than the global average and less than one-fifth of NATO’s.

Zhao Lijian emphasized that NATO’s history is full of misfortunes, and he owes a lot of debts, bringing wars and turbulence to the world many times. The international community will never forget that NATO carried out 78 days of indiscriminate bombing of Yugoslavia without the approval of the United Nations. We Chinese will never forget the historical tragedy of the bombing of the Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia. This is a blood debt owed by NATO to the Chinese people.

Merkel made a promise!

German Chancellor Angela Merkel went to the country's most severely flooded state of Lai Fah to learn about the disaster and said that the huge damage caused by the flood was almost beyond the scope of German. She promised that the German Federal Government will provide comprehensive assistance to the local people affected by the disaster. The cabinet plans to pass an emergency assistance plan on the 21st.

Trump was caught, Biden made a fool of himself, Bush Jr. bombarded the White House

Three presidents and one drama. Unexpectedly, after the twists and turns and bizarre plots of the US election came to an end, the "good drama" in the US political arena has not stopped. Even Bush, who has disappeared for a long time, chose this time. Blasted Biden.

At the moment, the US political arena is undergoing a "big earthquake". Pelosi investigates Trump, Bush Jr. satirizing Biden, Trump's comeback and other farce, can not help but make people feel stunned-good guys, the United States is so lively.

Three things mainly happened.

The first thing is that Trump was caught "handled." As the most unreliable president in the history of the United States, Trump has many titles, such as "nuclear weapon expert", "military expert", "designer of the US-Mexico border wall"... In Trump's view, Milley and others are famous Compared with his "former commander of the United States Armed Forces", the level of the American military officer in the United States is more than one rank.

On July 15, Trump said furiously that the rhetoric that "Trump tried to initiate a military coup and use force to overthrow the results of the US election" was completely fictitious, and Milly and others were just talking nonsense.

Trump emphasized, "Even if I really want to do this, I will not be able to cooperate with General Milley."

The reason Trump is so angry is because the US military has seized the "handle". In the book titled "I Can Do It Alone," Milly, the top general of the US military, exposed some unknown scandals of Trump.

There are three main points worth noting.

1. After losing the U.S. election, Trump has been in an "unspeakable" state. Trump wants to provoke a conflict, and then invokes the U.S. "Insurgency Act" to summon U.S. troops. On the surface, Trump's move was to defend Washington, but in fact, Trump's true intention was to take advantage of the chaos to overthrow the election result.

2. With no hope of turning defeat into victory, the White House staff, including Pence and Pompeo, are all advising Trump to do one thing, which is to attack Iran with a dangerous move. In addition, former Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu is also persuading Trump to do so.

Under the "advice" of the major forces, Trump began to waver. The problem is that the Pentagon at this time has not listened to Trump's orders. American generals believe that the attack on Iran will pay a heavy price, and that the United States is at the critical point of "transferring the presidential power", so it cannot easily use force.

3. In the post-Trump era, Trump has lost control of the US military. When Trump asked Milly to obey the order, Milly directly countered Trump by "submitting his resignation." Milly believes that Trump cannot succeed without the support of the CIA, FBI and the Pentagon.

In addition, at Pelosi’s request, the U.S. military also paralyzed the nuclear button in Trump’s hand. At the time, American generals were very worried about one thing, that is, Trump, who was frustrated and frustrated, would suddenly press the nuclear button. .

It should be noted that although Trump has repeatedly bombarded Milli, the news that Trump "attempted a coup and attacked Iran" has not been approved by the US Supreme Court.

It's not credible, and it's still unknown for the time being, but Biden Pelosi will inevitably take the opportunity to pick things up.

The second thing, Bush Jr. bombarded Biden. In fact, the reason why Biden was able to win the presidency is inseparable from Bush Jr.’s support. This former U.S. president, who was "non-speculative" with Trump, is a Republican veteran, but he is more inclined to Support Biden.

After the 2020 U.S. election, the U.S. political arena even saw four “Clinton, Bush Jr., Obama, and Biden” fighting against Trump alone.

The reason Bush Jr wants to condemn the White House is because Biden decided to withdraw troops from Afghanistan, and he also satirized Bush overtly and secretly.

In Biden's view, sending troops to Afghanistan is completely asking for trouble. This is a strategic mistake of the United States. It is time to see the reality clearly.

Bush Jr. said that the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan is wrong, which will bring unimaginable grief to Afghanistan. The Taliban will soon capture Kabul, and the Afghan people will suffer "unimaginable" harm.

Bush stressed that Biden's move is heartbreaking.

You know, Bush Jr. initiated the protracted war in Afghanistan. Bush Jr. has always believed that the U.S. troops sent to Afghanistan are a manifestation of the United States in maintaining world stability, but now Biden is about to withdraw its troops completely. What will the world think of the U.S. military and the United States?

The third thing is that Biden made a fool of himself. From not remembering the name of the U.S. Secretary of Defense, treating Trump as Putin, to being confused between Syria and Libya, and lacking in the foreword in his speech, the international jokes made by Biden have already made the American people feel "not offended". .

On American social media, it is actually not uncommon to say that "Biden is often confused", "It's time to give up the presidential throne", and "Nerdy is worse than lunatic". The US military and civilians, White House staff, and the Pentagon are worried about Biden's physical condition, but Biden pretends to be unaware.

On July 15, when he held a joint press conference with Merkel, Biden made the world headlines again.

The American reporter arranged by Biden asked Merkel a question, "What do you think is the difference between Trump and Biden?" After hearing this, Merkel smiled and said, "No matter who is in charge of the White House, It is important to maintain friendly exchanges with the President of the United States."

Merkel has a lot of supporters in the United States, and the weight of her statement is really heavy. It is not difficult to see that what Biden wants is to make Merkel say "Trump is much better than Biden", but Merkel He saw through Biden's tricks.

Soon, Trump supporters began to ridicule Biden's "overhead" and "bad ideas."

Looking at it now, the contest between Bush Jr., Trump and Biden may have just begun. Clinton and Obama have not yet spoken, and the more exciting drama may be behind.


Pakistani Foreign Minister visits Chinese personnel injured in terrorist attack

The shuttle bus for the “Dasu Hydropower Station” project in Pakistan’s Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province undertaken by a Chinese company exploded on its way to the construction site on the 14th. At present, 9 Chinese and 3 Pakistani personnel have been killed. On the 18th, Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi went to the Army General Hospital in Islamabad to visit and sympathize with the Chinese personnel injured in the attack. Pakistani Foreign Secretary Sohail Mahmoud and Chinese Ambassador to Pakistan Nong Rong and others went together.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi: I am here on behalf of the Pakistani government and people to express support to Chinese friends who help Pakistan develop. We realize that certain forces do not want to see Pakistan develop, and they do not want to see the China-Pakistan Economic Corridor project completed quickly and in a timely manner. They are cowards. They will be wiped out. We will track them down. We will punish them and bring justice to them. Together, China and Pakistan will defeat them and build a stronger relationship.

Qureshi visited the Chinese wounded one by one, asked the hospital to learn more about the injuries and treatment of the wounded, and expressed sincere condolences to the Chinese wounded on behalf of the Pakistani government and people.

Pakistani Foreign Minister Qureshi: The Pakistani people thank you for your sacrifice and dedication. We thank you for your work in Pakistan. The Pakistani government and people take care and support you and will ensure that adequate security is provided to ensure that criminals are brought to justice.

Injured Chinese company employee: It’s okay now, but the head is more uncomfortable, and the hands, legs, and body are all injured. It will basically be better if you recover for a period of time.

At present, there are 26 Chinese personnel hospitalized in the Pakistan Army General Hospital. Qureshi said that he will do his best to arrest criminals and bring them to justice. The Pakistani government will further enhance security measures in the next step.
