Foreigners are thin on the ground in China

Foreigners are thin on the ground in China these days. Just look at poor Element Fresh: For years, the Western restaurant chain, known for Caesar salads and surprisingly potent cocktails, was a haven for homesick expats; now, it’s gone out of business. But it’s not just middle-of-the-road eateries that are suffering: the mass exodus of China’s international residents is being felt by businesses across the economy. This week, Sixth Tone does a deep dive on the growing “foreigner shortage,” what’s causing it, and how it’s sparking some interesting developments in the Chinese labor market. — Dominic Morgan, editor

Putin’s battle plans & Ukraine invasion maps as (un)-covered by Western media

‘Russian invasion’ scenarios imagined, complete with detailed maps and phases of the incursion

The same US “intelligence community” that brought us ‘weapons of mass destruction in Iraq’ and ‘Trump-Russia collusion’ claimed in November that Moscow is preparing to invade Ukraine any day now. 

The harder Moscow denied it as ‘fake news’, the louder – and more vivid – the allegations became. Things went into overdrive after high-level security talks between Russia and the US appeared to end in failure, with Washington rejecting Moscow’s ‘red lines’ out of hand.

Daily Mail draws maps of ‘full-scale invasion’

“Moscow [has] moved as many as 100,000 troops, as well as tanks and missiles, close to the border” with Ukraine, the Daily Mail claimed on Wednesday. Variations on this line have been reported by just about every major outlet – and many minor ones – in NATO countries over the past six weeks.

The tabloid published multiple maps of how the fantasy ‘invasion’ would unfold.

RT

At least the Mail admitted the claim comes from Kiev, and attributed the estimate that Russia has “a further 3,000 military personnel” backing 35,000 “rebels” within Ukraine to the same source.

RT

The Daily Mail further raised a hue and cry on Wednesday over several Russian ships sailing through the Baltic Sea that “might” be headed to Ukraine, even as planeloads of British missiles were en route to Kiev.

RT

The paper also quoted anonymous senior officials at the UK Defence Ministry, saying they “strongly believe [Russian President Vladimir Putin’s] preference is for a full invasion rather than a limited offensive.” 

The Sun predicts Russia is ‘sleepwalking into Vietnam’

Russia could “sleepwalk into ‘Vietnam War’ in Ukraine invasion facing kill zones, guerrillas & US special forces,” The Sun proclaimed on Wednesday, quoting a former US colonel who fought in Afghanistan. They also cited someone from the Henry Jackson Society lobby group who said that the CIA will be funding a guerrilla war in Ukraine, with “American forces on the ground assisting the Ukrainians though not actually fighting.”

Reuters evokes specter of WWII Battle of Berlin

Columnist Peter Apps on Wednesday conjured the imagery of “the largest combined arms military operation undertaken by Russia since the Battle of Berlin in 1945” for Reuters, citing the US think tank Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). The organization was also behind the map of how the ‘Russian invasion’ might unfold.https://platform.twitter.com/embed/Tweet.html?creatorScreenName=RT_com&dnt=false&embedId=twitter-widget-0&features=eyJ0ZndfZXhwZXJpbWVudHNfY29va2llX2V4cGlyYXRpb24iOnsiYnVja2V0IjoxMjA5NjAwLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X2hvcml6b25fdHdlZXRfZW1iZWRfOTU1NSI6eyJidWNrZXQiOiJodGUiLCJ2ZXJzaW9uIjpudWxsfSwidGZ3X3NwYWNlX2NhcmQiOnsiYnVja2V0Ijoib2ZmIiwidmVyc2lvbiI6bnVsbH19&frame=false&hideCard=false&hideThread=false&id=1483876730406322177&lang=en&origin=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.rt.com%2Frussia%2F546575-putins-plans-ukraine-invasion-msm%2F&sessionId=f3138c401a54385c0a138fba3ef9776289bc9f35&siteScreenName=RT_com&theme=light&widgetsVersion=75b3351%3A1642573356397&width=550px

Crimea Bridge ‘bomber’ posts Paint job

Washington Examiner columnist Tom Rogan, of ‘Ukraine should bomb Putin’s Crimea bridge’ infamy, also reached for the map for his analysis on Monday – a homemade one

Washington Post enlists Bolton to unveil Putin’s strategy

Major US outlets also fortified the ‘Russian invasion’ narrative. Sunday’s Washington Post ran an opinion piece by neoconservative war hawk John Bolton, who claimed he knew Putin’s strategy for Ukraine and that the US needed one to counter it. 

“The United States and NATO should surge shipment of lethal military assistance to Ukraine (and possibly Georgia and others) and redeploy substantial additional forces there — not to fight, but to train and exercise with Ukrainian counterparts. Let Russian generals, looking through their field glasses, see American flags in Ukraine and wonder what it means,” Bolton wrote.

Economist’s sage advice

The UK-based Economist subtitled its coverage of the hypothetical conflict “The guns of January” on Monday, 

before laying out three scenarios for potential Russian interventions, all of which “would necessitate a big war.”READ MORE: Is an all-out Russia-Ukraine war about to break out?

“The odds have now increased that there will be some kind of dramatic but limited military operation in Ukraine,” The Economist quoted a British Russia-watcher now working for a think tank in Estonia.

A retired US general who served as a military attaché in Moscow claimed that “The Ukrainians will fight and inflict major losses on the Russians.”

Spanish Police join the Resistance

Spanish Police Declare Resistance To Covid Tyranny and Corruption

January 19, 2022

ER Editor: This report is based on a tweeted video of a Spanish police officer speaking at a rally. It seems to be Sonia Vascovacci and her activist police group that we have reported on before.

Readers may be interested in this piece (Google will translate it into English if the link takes you to a Spanish version), Cops for Freedom, the deniers within law enforcement led by a quantum healer. It’s worth reading for the more sophisticated way they trash this group of police, labelling them as essentially a dangerous cult. One of them is, gasp!, a quantum healer. As we are moving into a quantum system of just about everything, including finance and medicine, this guy might very well be ahead of his time.

We’re read enough from independent-minded cops and police organisations in France to know that they clearly recognize and resent being used to oppress a citizenry they were sworn to protect. Check out the work of Mark Sexton on this site, a former UK cop, who is bringing a criminal action against UK government ministers, officials and top media bosses before the International Criminal Court with the help of Dr. Mike Yeadon and other high profile people. There have been recent stories showing police in Roumania marching with protestors, as well as stories of police and military dissatisfaction in Italy. See The Draghi Regime Is In Disarray
