Taiwan air force drill simulates war scenario; Walmart arm denies removing Xinjiang goods​



China tells Walmart to respect the feelings of the Chinese people after the retailer apparently removed Xinjiang-related goods from its stores. A bleeding woman was eight months pregnant, but a Chinese hospital refused to take her in in time, due to lockdown restrictions. Beijing takes another step to control Chinese cyberspace. Now it seems mobile apps that may "influence public opinion" will require a security review. Taiwan’s air force shows off its combat readiness amid heightened tensions with China. Military jets screamed into the sky, as they practiced a drill simulating a war scenario. Last year was a year of record losses for China's tech tycoons. Because of the pandemic, Beijing’s clampdowns, and U.S. sanctions, almost a quarter of China's tech wealth was wiped away.

Taiwan’s army simulates urban warfare confrontation; Indonesia bans coal exports, China to suffer​



On the second day of a military drill, the Taiwanese army is simulating a scenario where its cities are under attack amid ongoing concerns of a Chinese invasion. Democracies in the Indo-Pacific region are coming together. Australia and Japan sign a historic defense deal in face of the Chinese communist regime’s threat. A Chinese real estate company has defaulted on loans—and it’s not Evergrande. Property developer Shimao Group missed a $100 million payment. Four people in California died of opioid overdose within an hour. Police suspect fentanyl is to blame, a drug primarily sourced from China. Another pregnant woman has lost her unborn baby after hospitals in one Chinese city turned her away. That’s as humanitarian concerns circle the city’s strict lockdown.

Taiwan bolsters defense with minelaying ship; Could the US lose all its flights to China?​



Could the U.S. lose all its flights to China? The country has enacted strict travel restrictions due to a surge of virus cases. While Hong Kong’s status as a transit point for international flight passengers may be a thing of the past. Taiwan ramps up its defense. Now the island’s navy is equipped with new vessels installed with automated mine-deploying systems. Over 100 people who practice Falun Gong died in China last year, including an 80-year old man. Beijing’s persecution of the peaceful meditation system is now coming into its 23rd year. A sudden lockdown order leaves one woman stuck in a stranger’s home after a blind date. A string of social media posts detail the days-long date. And a promotional campaign from KFC in China is a little too successful. The American fast food chain is now facing a state-backed clampdown.

Chinese officer teases nuclear war with US; China, Russia, Iran hold military drills |China in Focus​



U.S. aircraft carriers gather in the Indo-Pacific region on a scale not seen since World War II. Would the United States defend Taiwan if China launches an attack? A Chinese officer floats the prospect of #NuclearWar. Chinese aggression is now a hot topic for Japan. In response, the nation is teaming up with allies like the United States and France. No Chinese app, no Winter Olympics—that’s what Beijing has to say for athletes arriving for the Games. They’re required to upload health details to the software–but reports say the platform poses security risks. Another nation labels Beijing’s treatment of Uyghurs in Xinjiang as genocide. The move follows similar declarations from the United States, the UK, Canada, and the Netherlands.
