Posted in: China sanctions Boeing, two U.S. defense contractors for Taiwan arms sales See in context

Pointless and completely ineffectual, nobody at Boeing or the defense contractors will be losing any sleep over this.

It’s reciprocity not designed to hurt Boeing. China will do what the U.S. does to China. That’s why there’ll never be war. Someone has to attack China first and the U.S. won’t. It just hope the Philippines will or Taiwan by way of declaring independence. It bc won’t be the US. Result peace in Asia.

China is growing at double the rate of the US, runs a thumping trade surplus and has cornered the market in solar panels and other green-tech products. 

The military-industrial complex, the intelligence agencies, the Pentagon, Boeing’s Defense, Space & Security unit, General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, and General Dynamics Land Systems and their supporters in Congress - want to preserve the American hegemony but in reality Russia is a powerful, technologically sophisticated country. China is also a very powerful, very technologically sophisticated country.

The U.S. has no choice but to accept that.

The CCP, the only party legally allowed to exist in China, choose their leaders themselves. The populace has no say.

The populace has no elections?

This is good news. Xi is way too patient with the U.S. Reciprocity works well and sends a message peacefully.

This is good. Shows how strong the Chinese EV industry is. They’re going through Mexico and NAFTA.

China dumped $53 billion worth of treasuries, the record high in the first quarter. Let Biden prop up the economy.

can resort to a false claim of domestic violence, which can easily be done in Japan, where no evidence is required to file a domestic violence claim and enter a government-run shelter for several weeks.

Evidence may not be required to apply to enter a shelter due to domestic violence but we cannot assume evidence is not required under single custody filings as well.

Posted in: Honda revs up on EVs, aiming for lucrative U.S., China markets See in context

The average prices of EV are still relatively high comparing to their ICE or hybrid counterparts. Also not everyone is lucky enough to have a spot to park the EV and recharge it at night. There is still too many problems with fast charging at those charge stations.

They are only about $11,000.

Posted in: Xi lauds China-Russia ties as he meets with Putin See in context

Xi is prepared to go to war over Taiwan.

No he is not. UNLESS the US is reckless enough to put US bases and missiles there. In which case all bets are off.

The US used to have bases and missiles in Taiwan until Mao told them to remove them completely. The U.S. obeyed him.

This one hurts the most. I’m sure they regret it every day.

Don’t believe that. That’s war propaganda by the West and is also Xi’s lip service to the PLA. Unless of course you’re wanting to push the propaganda. The Chinese vice is money.

For now China backs Russia. But a time will come when China will make Russia pay for their support today.

Another comment out of touch that’s way out there.

It is actually…But a time will come when the PLA will make Japan pay. The PLA is salivating at Japan giving China the chance to retaliate overTaiwan (all US bases in Japan would be fair game.)

Xi is not interested in war. It’s the BRI. We should be glad Xi is not a hothead.

Russia is an ally. China knows how to play 三国志

China Russia Japan

But the U.S. keeps buying from China. China has a 21,000 acre car factory in Mexico. Some 18 of 33 Chinese auto part makers in Mexico export to the U.S. from Mexico. Tariffs Sheriffs.

The U.S. won’t cancel NAFTA. And the clueless say China is no longer our number one trading partner….Mexico is.

China wins.

“ But obviously not "disappointed" or "concerned" enough to pull out of totalitarian China, so your words mean nothing.

Any company that does business in China is helping the CCP oppress the people of not only China, but the world. Alphabet et al are part of the problem. “

This is typical Western oppositional thinking.

It is what Blinken said: "If you're not at the table, you're on the menu". It's shows a lack of strength to take on the enemy alone or just with your allies and is a form of authoritarian mindset. You just obey us. If you’re not for us then you’re against us.

China's approach to diplomacy is clear: non-alignment: we're not for Russia, we're not against Ukraine.

Russia, as the world's second largest military power, does not need the support of any country.

It is absurd for China to be seen as supporting Russia simply because it has not complied with the US sanctions policy against Russia.

China simply wants to continue doing business with Russia, and China is ready to continue doing business with Ukraine.

It’s perfectly fine to play the field. Japan does the same with the U.S. and China. The Tatemae is with the US but the money is coming from China.

Any company that does business in China is helping the CCP oppress the people of not only China, but the world. Alphabet et al are part of the problem. “

YouTube is not pro -CCP. Pure nonsense.

China sends navy ships and warplanes into the strait and other areas around the island almost daily to wear down Taiwan’s defenses and seek to intimidate its 23 million people, who firmly back their de facto independence.

Posted in: U.S. forges new 'battery belt' in hopes of electric future See in context

Where I live out in the middle of nowhere an battery electric EV doesn't offer enough range between charges to make leaving the local area for out of town shopping practical unless I want to waste 45 minutes to fully recharge the car.

A twenty minute charge goes 300 plus miles. I don’t know where you live though.

10 years plus 3,000,000jpy for each victim is more than enough to discourage others from doing it.

3,000,000 jpy per victim is too light. I believe it should be at least 8,000,000 for each victim.

They must also contend with insufficient skilled workers in manufacturing.

This is where China has the advantage over the U.S. of A: skilled workers who are willing to work and not boycott or strike.

16 out of 20 of the world’s best-selling EVs are Chinese.

These "protestors".....are they on the CCP's payroll?

No that’s the old ineffective US playbook and this shows the familiarity with funding separatists and terrorists as proxies to fight your wars in the West.

"Globally, we also know that we don't need more electric cars," she said, adding that what was required was a totally different way of thinking about mobility.

As soon as eco-terrorists and their companies gain market share of EV’s, we will “need more electric cars.” This is the equivalent of flipping the checkers board and throwing a tantrum when you’ve lost to the competition.
