Yeah, that place out 'there'. Anything not really Cambodia related should go here.

To prevent war, the best way is for other countries to unite in not buying Chinese product and stop trade with them. There are many other country that don't have expansionist ambition eg India, Vietnam, Malaysia, Thailand, Taiwan, Korea etc that can over time replace Chinese supply lines.

And now the Chinese have a vaccine and are vaccinating their military.
They probably had the vaccine before they even released the virus.
That’s their thing. Create a problem and create a solution. Be the hero.

Is it the one listed in the vaccine tracker? Stage 2 trials. I don't think the Chinese military lads get a lot of choice in the matter!

With England and Australia both openly offering short cuts to citizenship (plus others probably) for honk kong residents! it may be a "brain drain" with the best business minds and entrepreneurs leaving as quick as possible (asap) in fear of what may happen. Good luck to them; it would be a horrible situation to be in Austman
My wife said to get one of those pills that'll give me a huge hard on for hours! I brought her back some diet pills, Now I am hiding out in Cambodia for a few years until she calms down!

China passes controversial Hong Kong security law :(
China has passed a controversial security law giving it new powers over Hong Kong, deepening fears for the city's freedoms, the BBC has learned.

....
It's not quite as if the HKers did not deserve it.

On the ground they are often a nasty piece of work.

Just try to do anything besides shopping there and then rummage around in the back pages of the South China Morning Post.

China (and HK) citizens can’t have duel citizenship by law. If HKers choose to accept this UK citizenship they will not be protected by the UK embassy whilst in HK or China. (This also goes for when they accepted it in 97).

I doubt there will be many takers.
Don’t listen to Chinese whispers.
