The Australian Department of Defence accused China of firing a laser at one of its spy planes this week, condemning it as a “serious safety incident” that had the potential to “endanger lives.”
In a Saturday statement, the Australian military claimed one of its P-8A Poseidon spy planes “detected a laser illuminating the aircraft while in flight over Australia’s northern approaches.”
“The laser was detected as emanating from a People’s Liberation Army – Navy (PLA-N) vessel,” the statement alleged, calling the “illumination of the aircraft by the Chinese vessel” a “serious safety incident.”
The Chinese vessel was allegedly sailing east through the Arafura Sea, between Papua New Guinea and Australia, at the time of the incident.

The head of UK domestic intelligence service MI5, Ken McCallum, has advised MPs to beware of China and Russia’s “interference alerts,” which he believes will occur increasingly often as these two countries are allegedly aiming for international supremacy.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, McCallum said that since the January spy scandal in parliament involving Chinese ‘agent’ Christine Lee, several MPs have raised concerns over the suspect approach. According to the MI5 chief, Russia and China are also trying to access advisers in order to be informed on the prime minister’s activities.
“It will always be the case that those that are seeking to exert influence on our political life will want to influence those advisers in order that their point of view can be heard. Those advisers themselves are typically very aware of these risks,” McCallum said.

The 2022 Winter Olympics have begun in Beijing, China, amid the backdrop of the Chinese Communist Party’s religious persecution, human rights abuses, environmental pollution, and ensuing diplomatic boycotts. From the opening ceremony to reporters being pulled off the air by authorities, to defecting athletes, to horrific quarantine conditions, China’s communist system has far more ironies beneath the bright LED screens they use as smoke and mirrors.

Hunter Biden tried to broker a $120million oil deal between Chinese energy firm now under US sanctions...
The move triggered UK Foreign Minister Liz Truss who tweeted, “The Falklands are part of the British family, and we will defend their right to self-determination.”
Truss’ outrage drew scorn from Chinese state-affiliated reporters, with Chen Weihua saying via Twitter “It’s okay for UK to challenge China’s sovereignty in the South China Sea by sending navy vessels?”
The State Dept. approved the sale, saying it was requested by Taiwan's de-facto embassy in Washington, with Raytheon Technologies and Lockheed Martin to fulfill the contract.
America has been warned consistently by China over its support for the island, and now Beijing has told the US to cancel the new deal.
Does Washington have a different idea of stability?

New documents show that the ‘poverty alleviation’ scheme aims to thin out minority populations.
Labor transfers within the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) and to other parts of China meet the definition of forced labor and could be classified as crimes against humanity in an international court of law, according to a new report by German researcher Adrian Zenz.
Entitled “Coercive Labor and Forced Displacement in Xinjiang’s Cross-Regional Labor Transfer Program,” the report published Tuesday by the Washington-based Jamestown Foundation cited new evidence from Chinese sources as showing that the scheme not only serves economic purposes but is intended to “forcibly displace ethnic minority populations from their heartlands.”
