As was pointed out by the PM, UK war budget has been increased so they can go looking for trouble and keep the arms trade buoyant. Usual lazy economics, just needs a big enough enemy.
UK is not even a province of Guangdong size, too small to even create trouble. It's small like Corgi but bark like a big dog. After Brexit, they would be doggies of Europe.
They can send the Royal Navy if they want, which i think is currently about 10 active ships, give or take. Rebuilding those would be a job program post Covid. I like the Tweet about the (old) Summer Palace (Yuanming Yuan). It was said the most beautiful Palace in all of China before it was burned down by the Brits. Most Brits don't know, but the Chinese do. Not that far from the ruins of that marvel is another small palace or temple which name i have forgotten, it has a plaque informing its visitors about it's history. Apparently when the Brits arrived there to burn that one down too, a Russian General and its men send them packing, hence the thing is still standing. Stuff like that isn't lost on the Chinese.
As an edit, stuff like that isn't lost on foreign visitors either. The French did some burning in that palace too. It had a wooden archway around the lake which was burnt down by the French. When i visited their, a had a very loud group of French infront of me which of course refused to speak anything but French going awfully quiet all of a sudden when they passed the commemorative plaque.
The place is kept as it was burnt down afterwards, till this day. You can visit it sometime if you ever get to travel to China. Just recently there was a discussion (again) about whether we can start rebuilding the palace. And the people decided not to.
Never forget the darkest page of Chinese history.
lol send your entire british navy, we'll recycle them for you.
If one believes in the testing and positivity rate, then one must believe the evidence that this was spreading in Italy, Spain and the US long before Chinese labs Identified it! The old bloodwork from cancer patients does not lie. The water samples from Italy cannot lie! The evidence is clear and one must look at the Vaping desease the US couldn't explain aside from "homemade extracts" when it was more likely lung damage from covid! To put this on China you would have to put the Spanish Flu on (KANSAS US) and HIV/AIDS on US because they identified the illness!
Perhaps they should send all the Chinese people in Britain back to China. ?
Perhaps all the white people from western Europe should leave Native America, leave Pacific islands, leave aborigine Australia, and stop trying to explosively liberate and regime change other nations for natural resources and cheap labor?
Also, the British government actually said it wanted dissidents or violent protesters from Hong Kong. Haha.
Now here's a Brit who lives in the past..my my my...how quaint!
现在这儿有个活在过去的英国佬。.mymy my ...好奇葩的化石！
