Highlights of Lude Media (Morning)-March 16, 2021:
• During Blinken’s first Asia trip, Kim Jong Un’s sister on Tuesday warned the Biden Administration to “refrain from causing a stink” if it wants to “sleep in peace” for the next four years.
o Communist China is employing its allies like North Korea and Iran to threaten the U.S. But Mr. Lu De believes that North Korea trusts Russia more. So far, Russia has been silent about everything, and it is possible that Russia and the U.S. have reached a consensus about the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).
o The CCP was the direct cause for the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Therefore, Russia’s Putin must not fully trust Xi Jinping and the CCP.
• Beijing’s dog warrior Zhao Lijian said on the regular press conference that the U.S. is the true empire of tapping, hacking, and theft of secrets that severely undermines and threatens the security of other countries.
• U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken and Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin called international alliances “force multipliers” for Washington, adding that working with allies is “critical” to push back against China’s aggression.
o The Biden administration is attempting to challenge the CCP’s dominance in Asia and they must have already been in discussion with South Korea and Japan in advance. The Asia trip is a mere formality.
o Communist China’s foreign ministry responds that this is all cliches of the so-called China threat theory.
• The Australian navy joined Indian, Japanese, and American warships for annual Malabar exercises that began Tuesday in the Indian Ocean.
o This is significant, and it marks the growing strategic convergence of the four countries amid rising concerns about the CCP’s assertiveness in Asia.
o The Chinese army is not an apolitical military but serves the CCP completely.
