China has called for using electromagnetic attacks on U.S. warships transiting the South China Sea, according to a state-run Chinese outlet. The Communist Party-affiliated organ Global Times, quoting a military expert, said the use of nonlethal electromagnetic and laser weapons should be used by the People’s Liberation Army to expel American warships from the disputed sea. The report followed China’s potentially dangerous use of a laser against a Navy P-8A maritime patrol aircraft near Guam last month, and an earlier lasing two years ago of C-130 aircraft near China’s military base in Djibouti on the coast of Africa. The article was published Tuesday,

Comments:

How do you hide domestic inflation while waging two unnecessarily protracted wars in the Middle East while also blowing social spending into the stratosphere? Why, in a complete reversal of our successful trade embargo against the Soviet Union, you greatly expand trade with a dangerous rogue nation, knowing full well that the revenue would fund a military expansion aimed against the USA. One glaring black mark among several for Compassionate George, who I still do not miss yet.

This should be explained very clearly to China. Firing a laser at out aircraft should be great just like firing a surface to air missile, and get a cruise missile launched against the Chinese laser firer in response.

Make all the threats you want. It still does not change the fact that those same US Navy Ships have to protect Chinese merchant vessels and tankers or the Chinese economy crashes and burns.

Lets go back to an earlier name and call it the Natuna sea, Take the name away with territorial connotations. Naming it the China sea is racist

International waters means exactly what it is. If China doesn't recognize that, then they are the international problem. The rest of the world, including Europe, needs to step up.

China does not have a government that is friendly to the USA. The relationship between the USA and China is totally commercial in nature that was created by the globalist investor class in cahoots with DC UniParty politicians, including Joseph Biden, to reap as many profits as possible by way of utilizing extremely cheap labor to manufacture as many consumer items as possible, that can then be imported into the USA and other countries from China. While those policies made a lot of consumer items cheaper for Americans to purchase, they also eliminated a lot of US manufacturing factories, including very important pharmaceutical manufacturing, with huge numbers of American manufacturing jobs being transferred to China and other low wage foreign countries. If the Chinese Government were friendly to the USA they would not be talking about shooting potentially dangerous weapons at US Navy ships, or hiding the fact from the USA that there was an ongoing contagious virus infecting many thousands of Chinese people in China, subterfuge that allowed about 10,000 Chinese to keep flying to the USA every day without ever being screened for the virus, until President Trump initiated a travel ban to stop non-US Citizens from flying from China to the USA resulting in the leftist and liberal Democrats, including Biden calling Trump a racist and a xenophobe for instituting that travel ban.

It is obvious who China has chosen to support. I think they are willing to go to war to rid themselves of President Trump.

If China wants to be a member of the global community they better start acting like it. Otherwise they are a backward third world dictatorship. Politically, they are a tyrannical bully. Economically they are the equivalent of a thief and slavemaster. A plague runs rampant through their society, and they could care less. They show a total disregard for the rule of law when their government actively works to steal intellectual property. To top it all off, they run their mouths threatening a war to hide their short comings.

The damaging impact of air pollution in urban areas is likely increasing the coronavirus death rate, experts say. As COVID-19 spreads worldwide, experts have warned that people over the age of 60, along with those with preexisting health conditions—such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and chronic respiratory disease—are the most at risk. Air pollution, which has a bigger impact on lower income and non-white communities, is a major driver of the diseases mentioned above. According to one study, air pollution is responsible for an estimated 8 million early deaths per year. As a result of that health damage, respiratory infections

A drug developed over half a century ago to treat malaria is showing signs that it may also help cure COVID-19 — especially when combined with an antibiotic, a promising new study reveals. Hydroxychloroquine, sold under the brand name Plaquenil—and also used to treat arthritis and other ailments—was determined to be effective in killing the deadly bug in laboratory experiments, Forbes reported, citing findings published March 9 in the Clinical Infectious Diseases journal. “(W)e predict that the drug has a good potential to combat the disease,” the study’s authors, most from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Wuhan, wrote in a letter

Truman had just been nominated to be Roosevelt’s running mate that year, and the two men dined on the White House lawn and chatted about the upcoming campaign. Truman had not seen the president for over a year and was shocked at Roosevelt’s haggard appearance. He noticed that FDR was so ill that he couldn’t even pour cream into his coffee. Despite seeing direct evidence of Roosevelt’s poor health, Truman told reporters afterwards that Roosevelt “Looked fine...He’s as keen as a briar.” Truman was lying. Roosevelt was a dying man,
