ChiComs Shivering in the Dark with COVID

 

My glee at seeing the Communist junkhole China being laid low by COVID is greatly tempered by the fact that most Chinese don’t have much to do with Communism and in fact many hate their government.  That would make them natural allies.  I wouldn’t wish wracking illness on any anonymous foe (as opposed to the likes of singular persons such as Kim), and in general Chinese are just folks the same as we are.

Still, China the country is an implacable foe.  Its aggregate problems bring me happiness, despite taking no pleasure in individual hardship over there.  And problems they have!

China is now in the throes of a perfect storm of perfect storms — plague, famine, finance, infrastructure, energy, image, confidence — what’s not to love?

Over the last month, I’ve watched a spate of videos on China, and I’ll just drop links to some of the channels I find informative.  Things are really looking bad for China, which is good.  Yes, we will catch some collateral damage, but there has perhaps never been a better time for China to eat dirt.

China is in deep doo-doo.  Let’s see if we can resist the urge to bail these communists out.  Their Olympic plans are now menaced by (most recently) what looks like a double-whammy combined Delta and Omicron wave.  I don’t wish it on the Chinese people, but I am happy to see it wreak havoc on China.

    Considering that we should have nuked Wuhan in April 2020 even as we cut off all trade with the ChiComs, their current travails seem rather minor.

    I watched the China Uncensored video. I hadn’t been aware of any of this recent news from China, so thank you for this post.

    De nada, and my pleasure.  There’s so much going on that the MSM can’t/won’t track it.  The whole world is decoupling from China, and nobody is saying it.  I think that a lot of this has to do with pressure brought to bear by Trump.  When somebody leads, many others will follow.

    I don’t want to overstate this, but it certainly is understated right now:

    Trump may have beaten China in analog to how Reagan beat Russia. 

    Reagan poked the papier-mache, as Solzhenitsyn said, and the whole thing began to crumble.  People like to say that the whole thing tottered on the brink anyway, but even so — that’s when you push!  Revisionists try to paint Reagan (and Thatcher and Pope JP2) out of the picture, but that’s crap.

    So I’m considering that first, China may be falling, and second, Trump may be the agent of its demise.  Just waiting for collapse and confidence of collapse to work its way through various systems.

    One can hope
