Humiliated

Aramco of Saudi Arabia

was brought down to its knees

by a missile-drone assault

by the Houthis in Yemen.

A clamor to save face was in order

and theretofore the blame was put on Iran.

Much humiliation would it be that the

heretofore pipsqueak of an army like

what the Yemenis have coukl do such a havoc.

And thereby the united cry of

“Iran did it!” arose.

Accompanying this cry were the Americans,

who themselves were embarrassed that such an attack

escaped their radar watch.

This was a fair attack because Yemen and Saudi arabia

were virtually at war with each other.

Blaming Iran.mp4

Thereafter, efforts by the Americans

to form a coalition against Iran

failed to materialize.

The person most likely to be smiling now

would be Russia’s Foreign Minister

Sergey Lavrov!

The expression “Russia, Russia”

has ceased to be uttered.

Now the words “Iran. Iran”

has come up!

A Free Hongkong?

The protesters cry out for a free Hongkong.

They originally called for a withdrawal of the Extradition Bill.

Now they call for freedom and independence.

They should better be attentive and re-learn Beijing’s laws.

What they are calling for may be tantamount to REBELLION.

And should there be evidence of foreign interference with weapons,

it may be considered as AGGRESSION. 

Just a warning.

The Hongkong policemen have acted with incomparable restraint,

having been trained by the British, and being held back by Beijing.

Using excessive force on the protesters

will just be doing what the protesters hope for.

The Hongkong policemen and the Beijing troops will just hold on

and wait till the funds of the protesters run out,

or the pro-Beijing  people fights back.

Whatever happens, either the zeal of the protesters

or their food supply runs out.

What for the protests?

the Extradition Bill has already been withdrawn!

 

 

Message From China

Canada appoints a new Ambassador to China.

China appoints a new Ambassador to Canada.

Hongkong  withdraws the Extradition Bill.

It is presumed that Beijing ordered this.

China now iterates in more direct words

that Canada should free Meng Wangzhou.

This message from China

have been misunderstood  by Canada

even before Meng Wangzhou was arrested.

This message is now clarified as :

 

“talk to China directly and not thru America

in matters regarding trade, diplomatic relations,

or prisoner swaps. “

 

There should be no intermediaries

on just about anything

between Canada and China.

 

China has now provided a window

for better Canadian-Chinese relationship.

This is the best opportunity for Canada to clear things up.

As of now, China still holds the highest regard for Canada.

 Higher even than any other country in the world.

Hongkong Protests

These have now become disruptive

and the activities are getting out of control.

The protesters simply want the extradition bill withdrawn

(not merely suspended) and while this can be done with

an oral declaration, Carrie Lam refuses to do so.

Or, if I might say, China does not want to withdraw the bill.

China still has sovereignty over Hongkong.

Moreover, the protests are actually what China wants.

These protests dramatizes thegrave disdain that Chinese

have against extradition.

What more effective a message

can China send to Canada

than its refusal to withdraw the extradition bill.

Canada has been hammering out its conformance to the rule of law.

So now China will do likewise.

Only thing is China’s rules of law

is emphatically different from Canada’ rules of law.

Or doesn’t everybody know these?

In a nutshell,

Would China drop its extradition bill

if Canada drops its extradition of Meng?

Presently,here is no end in sight for these protests.

 

 

UK Tanker on Hit-And-Run

(You will please ignore this post if you must. Frankly I di not have the way to verify the past events. Just treat the story as a fairy tale.)

A few days ago, the UK sent another warshipto the Strait to watch over the British tankers hauling oil. Then comes a drone supposedly Iranian and downed by the Americans.

Now comes a British tanker speeding off after allegedly hitting a fishing boat. One Iranian patrol boat hails it and requests the British captain do an about face and turn back for security inspection. The British captain refused to do so claiming his ship is on international waters and may not be stopped for anything. Now what would the Iranians hope to discover after they boarded the ship?

I will guess—No receipt for the oil purchase can be shown; or the captain has no license to qualify him and the ship to ferry oil from Iran; the cargo is not oil; or the ship must be hauling the downed drone which is a British property.

Whatever the Iranians will find, the British captain must stop even if his ship is in international waters if he commits a misdemeanor such as hit-and-run or non-payment of cargo, or if he and his ship presents a security risk to just about anybody.

The Iranians say the stopping is not a challenge to the British tanker’s rights. This is emphasized by the Iranian patrol boat by not firing a warning shot across the bow.

 

 

Hit-And-Run.mpg

 

When will the British realize that the Galleon Trade is over eons ago and that profit by sea is not acceptable anymore.

But why was the British tanker in a hurry to get away?

Iranian Drone Downed

If my intuition still serves me right

the drone is not Iranian,

It was most probably an American drone

controlled by an American

and downed by an American  cruiser,

Another guess is that it was

a UK drone.

The  provocations to initiate conflict 

and prove that it rules the world

are bordering on the ridiculous,

turning the United States from a sanction bully

to the fake news  pest,

so much so that the rest of the world

have  started the search for both

Trump vaccines and Trump pesticides.

Let us therefore have a look-see

at what the downed drone looks like.

(it must be a drone.

they wouldn’t use a Gatling gun to down a kite!

or would they?)

Canadian Meat Imports Prohibited

China now prohibits the importation

of meat from Canada.

This is after Canola importations from Canada was stopped.

Whatever reasons we may be thinking of for these,

China is still following the Rule of Law

as regards the technical reasons for the prohibitions.

There will be more, unless…..

Big Mistake On Iran

Trump’s treatment of Iran

is making things worse of the current

adversarial situation.

He may have forgotten

that Oriental Psychology

does not work on the Persians.

This is one conflict that the Americans will not win

despite the sinister persistence of

John “Smiling Jack” Bolton.

United Sanctions of America, anyhow,

has not made any diplomatic coups lately.

Actually it is having progress

in retreating completely into its cocoon.

This will come at exactly that time

when the world has  been immunized

of the US dollar exchange.

(oh he smiles alright, but these smiles are not visible through his whiskers)

Hong Kong Extradition

China tried to pull a fast one on the residents of Hong Kong.

There is a pending bill on the autonomous government of Hong Kong

wherein criminals can be extradited to Mainland China.

Laws are different in the Mainland

and chances are when one is extradited to China

one may never be found again.

Millions of residents protested and asked for the bill

to be repealed and the Leader of the government be removed.

Good for the residents if these were completed.

This law will be tantamount to the Mainland skirting Hong Kong’s autonomy

and thereby will result to complete control of the government.

In this situation everyone in Hong Kong, including the Americans,

can be extradited to Mainland China.

 

Venezuelan Embassy Under Siege

With the failure of the US to change

the Venezuelan Government,

the action shifts to the Venezuelan Embassy

in Washington.

But this embassy is occupied by .people

under the legitimate permission of Maduro.

Taking over the embassy by force

with the American police would create a

very embarrassing international incident

for Trump’s  government.

Michele Greenstein

This one comes well-rounded

in both education

and figure.

She is also

Cute.

Canola Oil

(email sent to CBC News)

 

Canola Oil

Sending a diplomatic team to China to remedy the canola oil
import prohibition by China is useless.
We know why China is doing this
and I did put up a detailed suggestion as to how to
go about the Meng Wangzhou extradition irritant
in my website. The government just ignored it.
Well, Canada should suffer the consequences.
If I know the Chinese, this irritants have just started.
There will be more.
Come to think of it, we Canadians are the ones actually
suffering the consequences of what the United States
started. And for what?
So that the US would have the negotiating advantage
on just about everything.
It is now getting very difficult for me not to say
that we Canadians are downright stupid
for keeping up with appearances.

The Siege of Caracas

 

The Siege of Caracas

 

With his failure to achieve UN sentiments to depose Maduro,

Abrams called for the siege of Caracas,

By using the devilish method of fabricated black-out.

The effect just might be counter productive for him

because the blackouts also punishes the Guaido supporters.

While this siege demonstrates the impotence of Maduro’s

military to fire up the electric power stations

and throw the switches on to the transformers,

 it also proves that Guaido would be a sadistic President,

capable of punishing the population

to get something that America needs.

If these blackouts will not force the Venezuelans to capitulate,

Abrams may tamper with the water supply next.

This is one method that was not used on any siege of a city

Not even in the siege of Rome.

OR:

Abrams may call for the assassination of Guaido.

This method was used lots of times before.

Maduro may now be forced to clamp Guaido in jail

for his own protection and to prevent more riots.

And for reasons involving his calls to overthrow the government

Whatever happens, the problem now can be solved

by an airlift of oil lamps, kerosene stoves, and portable electric generators.

FYI, Japan, China, and the Southeastern Pacific countries have these.

Hanoi Meeting A Dud

No agreement was reached

in the Kim Jong Un-Trump meeting

in Hanoi.

I half-expected this,

knowing Trump

and the company he keeps.

The meeting was meant to only entice the

North Korean Leader to come,

so as to find out what he will agree on,

and what is the most important thing he needs,

and what he will give to get it.

Trump wanted more

and if I know his cohorts, he would give a hint

to Kim Jong Un

that North Korean elections are necessary.

That should break the chopsticks

on Bulgoki’s back.

And if I know Koreans

they don’t just fight back

they bite back

 probably targeting Trump’s hump.

Kim Jong Un is most probably busy now

uncovering a couple of missiles

to get it ready to fire at Guam.

These missiles would be short-fueled

so as not to land on Guam

but are pointed at Guam, anyway.

After all, these missiles were the ones

that got Trump to the negotiating table.

If and when that happens again,

it will be a longer table this time,

or one that will not allow handshakes.

North Korea should better just wait

for the Russian railway to get through.

This one will not be called the Orient Express.

It will be called the Katyusha Rocket.

Or whatever it means.

(remember that Vietnam is now progressive because the Americans lost the war and they had to leave the Vietnamese to develop on their own)

Caracas Airlift

Has the Caracas Airlift started yet?

If so, Maduro should envigorate the Venezuela Red Cross

to organize deliveries.

The Catholic Charities should be activated.

The military transports should be engaged.

Distribution stations should be set like plazas,

parking stalls of churches and grocery stores.

This government needs a Financial Czar

to manage international currencies, banks and government reserves.

Also a Financial Whiz to create and allocate budget expenditures

for the coming oil enterprise.

Also a transportation Minister to manage shipping, and trains, and ports

and temporary flexible pipelines.

There is no hunger in this country.

This is the reason why the Venezuelans do not rush to receive

the “humanitarian aid”  at the border.

OIL  TANKERS are most specially needed today!

Regime Changers Cry For Help

With their untoward project

of ousting President Maduro

grinding to a halt,

the United States and company

sends for help to the UN

Security Council to look into

the Venezuelan crisis

that the US started.

It gives the impression

that the US is actually giving up.

But what else is new.

the Americans are known to give up

on just about anything that they do not comprehend.

They bite more than they can chew.

For hereafter, they have to answer the question

what would the Venezuelans need that

Maduro cannot provide aside from

nail clippers and hair restorers?

They have also to prove that Maduro

is not a democratic President.

Funny it is that Maduro actually

wants the UN to come in and intervene

since nobody appears to accept the dialogues

that he offers.

Viva Latinos!

Venezuela’s Oil

The American oil companies now makes a beeline

for Venezuela’s very large oil reserves.

To get control pf this, however,

requires a regime change,

which is actually as ripe as the Americans could.

The foreign trade and commerce of Venezuela

has been blocked for years. resulting in

a much broken economy, so much so that

the starving Venezuelans could do no less

but cry for change.

Comes now the Americans with their scripted

regime change procedure which should include

Maidan-like snipers to accentuate the turmoil.

The purpose allegedly is to bring the country

back to Democracy.

Needless to say Venezuela IS A DEMOCRACY.

It has an elected National Assembly, a Supreme Court,

and a legitimately elected President.

Much more it has all freedom guaranteed.

Even freedom to protest.

Venezuela has a democratic government,

or more specifically,

a strangled democratic government.

Regime Change

The American squad,

using the scripted procedure for regime change,

should take their filthy hands off Venezuela.

McCallum Fired

And so a good Canadian Diplomat

with that ability to make good and friendly negotiations

by deftly parrying hostile remarks

is fired by an overbearing Prime Minister.

McCallum was talking to a Chinese audience,

and as such, he talks in the language that they

understand and are susceptible to.

That is, he calmed them down by going 

to the other side of the fence.

By now the Chinese are susceptible, softened

 to what he is going to say.

After making such good incursions to the Chinese

McCallum was set to go to China,

a trip which the PM considered bad for Canada.

and he was fired.

As a consequence,

there will be more Canadians detained in China.

And this,

for the simple reason that Canada is unmoving

and worse,

Canada is adversarial to Chinese diplomacy.

Even if Meng Wangzhou is not extradited,

and she goes back to China,

China will not release any of the detained Canadians,

before Canada changes its tune in the talks with China.

(it should start singing la donna e mobile*)

Canadian Diplomacy

McCallum.mpg

Canadian Ambassador to China,

John McCallum opines

that Meng Wangzhou has a strong case

on her extradition case.

This is just his opinion

and is not what we can call interference

with the extradition trial.

But some particular noise-makers in Canada

are up in arms calling  McCallum’s opinion

an intervention.

My gosh!

Believe you me.

It is now getting difficult not to call these people

stupid journalists.

(Ooops! Sorry. Pardon me.

Mea Culpa.

I did not mean to say “journalists”.

Slip of the pen, sorry.)

Personally,

this is the first instance within this government

that I have heard something that profuses

with tact and diplomacy.

This John McCallum

is up and starting to be

the accomplished diplomat!

Go, John, damn the torpedoes

Full speed ahead.

You will  get the Canadians out of China yet.

After all

they have yet to pinpoint where

Kim’s nuclear devices were moved to.

And John’s opinion

is precisely according to mine.

Bless his soul!

 

The Huawei Who We?

As if Canada realized that it has been beaten in the game,

it now sounds out the trumpet to call on its big brothers.

A very unwise decision.

This will make matters worse.

What could the others do to influence China?

Impose sanctions on Huawei?

These would easily be countermanded.

Or that company be re-structured and modified.

Canada again does not realize what it is up against.

It has yet to realize

that the US is using Canada as a cannon fodder.

And that efforts to release those Canadians

under Chinese detention are useless.

There is no cause for Meng Wangzhou to be extradited.

They should have known that by now.

But there are valid reasons

why the Canadians should be detained in China.

And if my guess is right,

these reasons are related

to the complete denuclearization of Korea

as was promised by Kim Jong Un.

Perhaps the Canadian News media should stop spinning

and start listening to some other comments.

They don’t put their brains on the noise they make.

(Use Your Heads, think till it hurts)

 

 

The Huawei Test case Continues

And so the Meng Wanzhou case continues

with explicable consequences

like a new intelligence gathering by abductions.

Canada detains Meng without possession of

valid American extradition papers,

China detains two Canadian citizens,

and Russia enters the scene by abducting Whalen.

These abductions would be more pleasant

should they intend to use vodka, or rice wine, or cognac

instead of water for boarding; in which case the confessions

would be more sufferable and confounded merely

by a few hiccups here and there.

But all kidding aside, this is a test of

how effective the much-vaunted American sanctions can go.

now, it thus appear that American sanctions are effective only

if the countries cooperate in ganging up on the sanctioned party.

Otherwise, like in this instance, only Canada will cooperate in applying

American sanctions.

This is but natural for Canada to cooperate because this is one

country that keeps its word as regards agreements

and treaties which someone we know just breaks with a whim.

American sanctions are not punishable by detentions

and the rest of the world know this.

it is , however, open season for Canadian citizens for abductions.

Sad it is but this is true.

This country knows no enemies.

As a consequence, it has now become a whipping boy

for the rest of the world.

The ugly part of it is that Canada does not fight back.

It has even deferred itself from building

military grade weapons for its own defense.

But iof Canada really wants to end this test case

it should force the Americans to provide papers

to start the extradition trial of Meng Wangzhou.

Remember also that the more the extradition trial is delayed

the more money the lawyers concerned earn in fees

and this for just doing nothing but wait on their haunches.

How much more problems will the Justice Ministry

subject the country to?

Even the Federal Courts are troublesome!

And grandstanding, too.

I give you my first quotable quip—

You take-a my toy top,

I take-a your toy yoyo.

You give me back my toy top,

I think of giving your toy yoyo.
