Ug. Just posted my drivel to Festival. Again. http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/chat/3833445/posts?page=1510#1510
I gather youve learned nothing to cancel out what I was told about the Chinese taking Australia?
I learned of the extreme poverty of the rural regions. The stories were amazing from the one guy, a communist believer and [mao] book carrier.
Regarding cancelling out...
I see the anti-China drumbeat. Wuhan virus, previous trade deals (set up and signed by our betters to gut our country), fentanyl, payoffs to politicians... And yes, it could be they are, China, as a people, set to takeover, make war by any and all means.
I also know about the Gulf of Tonkin. And Archduke Ferdinand. And other things labelled as conspiracies, that we are not to discuss on the thread. I know the deep state clamors for war, and feeds us reasons to make it seem appropriate.
I am wary of the obvious gut response. I do not want to be played, again.
