Japan, Taiwan on ALERT After Chinese Fleet Approaches

May 7, 2022

Japan and Taiwan were on high alert after a fleet of Chinese navy ships passed through the first islands chain on their way to the Pacific. An Australian citizen was attacked in his own country for criticizing Chinese leader Xi Jinping and was told he could face charges. And Alibaba's stocks plummeted after a man surnamed "Ma" was arrested. Watch this episode of China Uncensored for that and more of this week's China news headlines.

Again.
You might actually be rejoicing at the objectivity of this Falun Gong-funded channel.

I don't have time to check all of them now.

I had no idea it was Falun Gong-funded
You are a very good researcher.

Aren't Japan and Taiwan always on high alert?

I would have thought Japan is more frightened of Kaiju

Correction:
I made a mistake: they were not "funded" by Falun Gong.
They are the "practitioners" of Falun Gong.

China Uncensored is a YouTube commentary channel that focuses on sensitive political issues in China with elements of humor and irony. The show opposes the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). Chris Chappell is the host of the series. Until 2020, the YouTube show was compiled into longer 30-minute episodes aired by New York-based New Tang Dynasty Television, which is affiliated with Falun Gong, a new religious movement persecuted in China. NTD added Chinese subtitles to these longer episodes and broadcast them into mainland China.

Chinese warship sailing close to WA an ‘act of aggression’: Dutton

Pinned post – 2.23PM – May 13, 2022
Dutton says Chinese warship off WA coast ‘an act of aggression’

Peter Dutton has been asked how he characterises the movements of a Chinese navy vessel which has been travelling “unusually” close to the coast of Western Australia.

“I think it is an act of aggression. I think particularly because it has come so far south,” he says.

“To come so far south of Exmouth is unprecedented, and to hug coastline the way it has ... We don’t know whether it deviates and goes directly north, but at the moment it is heading in a north-easterly direction.”

Dutton says he doesn’t want to see China “continue down the path of aggression”.

“I want to normalise our relationship with China, like anyone,” he says.

“If we believe that by saying nothing or pretending that nothing is happening that somehow the problem will resolve itself, I just don’t think people have learnt any of the lessons of history.”

The time when "Neptune" was close to Australian waters was only a few days before the Australian election.

The Chinese Communist Party's Global Times accused Australia's "politicians of trickery", hyping up the "China threat theory" before the general election, and showing toughness toward China in order to win votes.

Dutton and the current Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison belong to the Liberal Party and will fight for re-election in the May 21 general election, and revitalizing the economy and defense are the party's main campaign cards.

But Dutton denied at the press conference that his criticism of China's "provocation" at this time had anything to do with the election.

The Australian Ministry of Defence said it respects the rights of all countries to exercise freedom of navigation and overflight in international waters and airspace, and it is considered that the subtext is "not illegal".

International legal scholars also believe that the activities of Chinese spy ships in Australia's exclusive economic zone are in line with international practice.

It is also worth mentioning that China and Solomon just signed a security agreement in April. Australia, New Zealand and the United States have all expressed concern about this, as leaked terms revealed it would allow Chinese warships to dock in the Solomon Islands.
