Author Steven Mosher Explains How China Breeds Pandemics

"A major work is out now. I love these politically incorrect guides. I have learned an immense amount from them. And you have now a written when was it published just this week last week last month, the on off the presses, the publication date was this week, and so the politically incorrect guy to pandemics. I love it. There's no doubt it is now on my list to read because it's you and because it's the subject. So give me, give me some examples of a politically incorrect take on pandemics. Well, first of all, people need to know that China is the great breeding ground of pandemics, especially under the Chinese Communist Party. That back in 1958, there was something called the Asian fluid killed a million people around the world. Why? Because when it originated in South China in the province of guizhou in the southwest of China, the Chinese Communist Party covered it up. It did not see fit to notify the World Health Organization that there was a dangerous new virus on the loose, the tens of thousands of Chinese were dying. And it became a pandemic and spread around the world. Only later did genetic evidence trace it back to China. A far too late to do any good in terms of curbing the pandemic. Same thing happened again. Same playbook, 1967, 68, with what was called the Hong Kong flu. Now, Dennis, it wasn't the Hong Kong flu. It was the Mainland China flu, the people of Hong Kong were furious at being having it mislabeled. But China did the same thing. The Chinese Communist Party did not notify the World Health Organization, covered up the epidemic, let it spread around the world until over a million people died. But the real, the real troubling episode and the one that should have clued us into the danger from China as the great breeding ground of pandemics happened in 2002, 2003. This was the SARS one coronavirus epidemic. We're living through the SARS two. SARS one happened. I began in November 16th of 2002, when a snake cellar in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong became ill with a coronavirus, a snake coronavirus, in that case, not a bad coronavirus. And he died fairly quickly after that. Thousands of people died in China in the months following. And what did China do? The Chinese Communist Party hid the breakout of this deadly coronavirus. It silenced whistleblowers. It did not notify the World Health Organization, and it was only when Canadian intelligence thank God, Canadian intelligence services picked up wire transmissions in China about the spread of a dangerous new virus that the world went to China and said, what's going on and China belatedly admitted that it had an epidemic on its hands

"Then came the cultural revolution in 1966. Neighbor turned on neighbor and brother against brother. Someone remembered that my mother's brother, my uncle, had left for Hong Kong back in 1946 and became a merchant there. Having a relative in Hong Kong meant we were spies and enemies of the people. And we had to be struggled against in every way. Your poor grandmother, she couldn't take the abuse and threw herself down a well. Then some boys with hunting muskets dragged your grandfather away one day into the Woods. And he never came back. There I was, a ten year old orphan. The only relative I had in the world was my uncle in Hong Kong. I snuck away one night and climbed onto a freight train going south. Down in Guangdong province a few days later, some men caught me stealing food from a field. When they heard that I was trying to get to Hong Kong, they laughed. It's your lucky day. Our trade is to bring girls to Hong Kong. They hid me in the bottom of a truck along with other girls, and smuggled us across the border. We were taken to a basement and told to stand up and look healthy and intelligent for the buyers. Families paid the warehouse of fee and came by to look us over and select one of us to adopt. The chin family picked me to take care of their two boys. I got up every morning at four to prepare breakfast. I fed and bathed the boys. I shopped for food. I did the laundry and swept the floors. I followed the boys around and did their bidding. At night, I was locked into a cupboard in the kitchen to sleep. If I was slow or did anything wrong, I was beaten. If the boys did anything wrong, I.

"Trading is underway in a couple of key markets around the region largely buoyant today The kneecap more than 1.1% and the Cosby is up a little more than 1% The laggard the SX 200 with gains of about two tenths of a percent We have a COVID zero policies in Hong Kong and China and any movement at all would be cause for excitement And so we see reported in the South China morning post this morning that people from Hong Kong could be a lot of visit China as soon as next month without having to quarantine with movement limited to Guangdong province initially So that's a story When we get time we'll take a closer look at that And we'll also get to the markets in a moment Some other stories now top stories of the day Paul And the top story of the fade will begin tapering asset purchases at the end of the month that will reduce purchases of treasuries by $10 billion and buying of mortgage backed securities by 5 billion Regarding interest rates fed chair Jay Powell said policy will remain accommodative for now Our decision today to begin our tapering our asset purchases does not imply any direct signal regarding our interest rate policy We continue to articulate a different and more stringent test for the economic conditions that would need to be met before raising the federal funds rate Pal said it wouldn't be a good time to raise rates because he wants to see the labor market heal further He also said the fed could wrap the tapering process up by mid 2022 but the pace could change depending on the economic outlook Well Citigroup is about set to apply for an investment banking business license in China Bloomberg's nabila Ahmed tells us why and how The country opened up to the foreign banks last year This is a huge opportunity for them This is a $54 trillion financial market They're following in the footsteps of Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan They want to be able to underwrite nominated deals and also look after their private wealth clients there as well We're hearing that city will submit the application in the next couple of days They'll also apply for a futures license in the next few weeks Immigrants troubles are unlikely to constitute a systemic risk for auditing in Hong Kong and that's according to Hong Kong's accounting regulator the watchdog started an investigation last month into evergreen and its ordered at price waterhouse coopers Kelvin Wong is chairman of the financial reporting council He said the council doesn't see a single case becoming an industry wide risk but he did flag that firms with high debt levels should take extra care and calculating the health of their businesses One also declined to comment on the progress of the probe or whether it's looking into the books of other Chinese developers All right let's take a closer look at market action here particularly in the Asia Pacific Let's get to our colleague Bloomberg's Doug Kristen So things are looking pretty positive but as our guest pointed out in this last little segment if things are looking so good why are rates still so low Well as long as you have a Central Bank buying I guess that's the reason enough right There's a bit in the market You know somebody was saying earlier on one of our programs to call it a bond market really is a bit of a misnomer because it's been so distorted by Central Bank activity I mean you have very little in the way of kind of market forces actually playing out Ten year treasury was at one 60 at the end of New York trading were at one 59 in the Tokyo session We've got the kneecap pushing higher by about 1% gains here in the Japanese equity market being led by information technology and healthcare and so the cost being now rising 1.2% In this case it's consumer discretionary out in front and in Sydney the ASX 200 better by about two tenths of 1% Information tech rising So a lot of that information tech positivity is undoubtedly tied to the forecast on revenue from Qualcomm after the beld O shares popped about 7% The company is saying that the revenue for the current quarter will come in between 10,000,000,010.8 billion The street was only looking for 9.73 billion so a lot of positivity And if you look at the E mini futures for the NASDAQ 100 that contract is pushing up by about three tenths of 1% after a record setting session here in the U.S. across the board for the Dow the S&P NASDAQ even the Russell 2000 Crude oil right now has been fluctuating just above $80 a barrel We do remain weak by about 7 tenths of 1% We had indications during New York trading that the EU will be talking with Iran on a nuclear deal those conversations will resume on November 29th We also heard from Electronic Arts after the bell forecast on revenue was broadly in line with estimates This may suggest that the new game battlefield do out this month will perform better than some of the earlier reviews seem to indicate in the stock popped by more than 4% in late New York trading We'll take another look at markets in 15 minutes Paul All right thanks very much Doug 8 35 now in Hong Kong 1135 here in Sydney time for a check of global news And the U.S. Pentagon saying that China is expanding its nuclear

If they cease to export tow us and sell us their junk China collapses. No, No, I discreet The China Would need us to be profitable and economic and all of that, But look, they killed 60 million Chinese back under Mao and those of the same people in charge now.

Oh, yeah, That's that's five now, too, so not 98 98 people in total for all of Biden's events. Well, that includes the two people that were on stage with him during the debate. That's priceless. One of his attendees now in October. He has done a little bit better. A couple days back. He actually had 140 cars in a parking lot. Um But But maybe most of those were just going shopping. You don't know right? They could have been just going to get you Don't they were isolated, so are granted that he had 140 drivers. He had a campaign event with Harris in Phoenix, and nobody showed up. But Biden or tour came back. Obama was in Philadelphia and had five people at an event. That was perhaps the most embarrassing thing that was fried. I think off Thursday that photograph that the former president of the United States who hasn't been out of office for 20 years or 30 years, who just left of the White House four years ago, was dragged out of watching ESPN to do an event for Biden and he had six people in the audience.

I would go with him. He said nine what you too. So he basically me behind which is fine. We broke up. I started seeing somebody like not even just saying just hanging out rock climbing with someone else. And he says Oh. I was going to ask you to move here when he finds out that was just pure control he is. This was one of those things where it's like. I don't WanNa be with you. I don't want you to be with anybody else and I realized that in that moment we use at that. I said that's not fair and I hung up the phone and I got and I didn't say it as ideal that's not fair. Hung up on him. I slammed the phone down on him and I literally right after that rose by arms up to the ceilings and I said no more assholes and I was looking up the ceiling but I was looking through the ceiling. Frigging looking at God. And I'm done no more assholes and I felt those words go through my body and Natalie that was it was at when you say something and change in frequency at the same time you are changing the trajectory of your life.

We decided to buy a house together and I said you know I wasn't working at the time I was working but I was. I was stripping and said he had his money for down payment. I didn't have mine. I said I can go make mine but I I go stripping to go do that and he said this no pride. I don't have any problem with that. So okay so I started dancing again to go make It cut out until I lost you at down payment. He had his money for payment. I had mine so he has money for a down payment and I have mine but I said I can go string. I could go get it and he said Yep. No problem. Have any problem with that. I got back into the industry. I was at a week like I started dancing. We got engaged. We got married still dancing throughout this time. I am dancing with my wedding ring on. And that's when I met my second husband loom so You know he can club with a friend he got a dance came back the next day and he said to me for a dance and you said can. I take you to dinner.

"Everything that's going on a chance to check with inventors Dr Cameron Khan. He's the founder and chief executive officer Blue Dot. His background is as an infectious disease physician. I think when you get done hearing what he has achieved in how is put it together. You Re truly amazed at some of the opportunities. We traced dramatic better anticipation of management of our response to various pandemics or PEDANTIC DOT com. Thank you for joining us. Thank you for having me. What led you to become a specialist in epidemiology as a physician. I was always fascinated with the field of infectious diseases. I think also was really interested in understanding not only what's happening with my patients but how their illnesses might spill over into the population affect others. I have a big practice in Turkey for example and so understanding what happens to my patient and then when they walk out of the clinic and they're out in the community. What's happening there after? I finished my medical training at the University of Trento came down to New York and to Boston and did my infectious disease training. I'm trained as a public health permitted medicine physician and then did some of my epidemiologic training at Columbia and Harvard and then came back to Toronto in two thousand and three really have just always been fascinated by infectious diseases and wanted to have that understanding. That could bridge. What's happening with the individual and how that goes out into the broader population. I was in New York when West Nile virus made the leap over into North America. Nineteen ninety nine and was there as well in two thousand one remember after nine eleven anthrax was weaponized through the US postal system so was around these public health emergencies and then came back to Toronto. And then my experience in two thousand and three really consolidated my interest in emerging diseases and emergency response when you got back to Toronto in two thousand three it was right in the middle of the SARS outbreak. Wasn't it it was actually just before. Sars started shortly after I got here. This virus that nobody had ever heard of or seen before showed up in our hospitals in fact the actually one of my close colleagues and number of healthcare workers here in the city died in the line of duty. It overwhelmed our hospital our public health infrastructure and really crippled our city for four very very long months. I think in many ways what people are feeling around the world today with Kobe's nineteen. We're feeling the same kind of thing with just a different corona virus. The SARS grown a virus back in two thousand and three and for me at the end of it. There was a sense that we've never seen anything like this before. But this won't be the last time and now is the time to start thinking about ways we could perhaps get ourselves better. Prepared was the source of the SARS outbreak. It emerged in Guangdong Province. Probably in late. Two thousand two started to amplify you will see. There are parallels cove nineteen started to increase in activity in Guangdong province and moved over into neighbouring Hong Kong. And then of course. Hong Kong being a major global hub for transportation quickly jumped around the globe to about two dozen different countries in cities and then Toronto being one of them and we just were unfortunate and we had an outbreak. There were many imported cases around the world including in the United States. But this was one place where the virus caught fire if you will and started to trigger a few different waves of an outbreak that went on for almost four months. I happened to be in South Korea at the beginning of the krona virus epidemic and it was interesting a Koreans taken really seriously the experience of SARS and I think both Taiwan and Singapore were much more aggressive and sort of had a sense that we've been here before we know how dangerous is and they reacted very very fast and it was really somehow SARS imprinted career much deeper than it. Did the United States? Let me just first of all say. I think every other city or country that has experienced this kind of outbreak Korea had an outbreak of murders in Seoul. Like believing his back. In Two Thousand Fifteen. Hong Kong of course was hit very hard during the SARS outbreak Singapore Taiwan Toronto. Also being one of those places where we had a significant outbreak. One of my close colleagues got infected with SARS we had other frontline healthcare workers who died and I think what that did is it really sent a lot of angst through the healthcare workforce where on the front lines. And it's hard for us as clinicians to be able to have this global panoramic view of what's happening around the world there's an adage in medicine. I believe it was coined by an American physician. The nineteen forties when you hear hoof beats think of horses not zebras. And that's kind of what we're used to thinking about the things that we see day in and day out in our own backyard but our backyard has just gotten a whole lot bigger and now we have to be thinking about events happening all around the world in many ways. That was for me the inspiration to say. These diseases spread quickly. But we have the raw ingredients to actually spread information and knowledge even faster. We've got increasing access to data. We have advanced tools like artificial intelligence to make sense of these data and we can spread information through the Internet faster than any outbreak can spread. So how do we take advantage of these types of digital tools and assets that we have and use them to be better prepared and to be better coordinated? We need to be providing this type of intelligence to the frontline healthcare workers because we rely on them to protect themselves and to protect the rest of us more effective and efficient in the way that we detect these threats and respond to them. You really got involved directly in thinking about ways to do this. That I think is pretty intriguing. How you approached it. What led you to go to this kind of quantifiable approach. It did strike me. That WHO's remarkably powerful. What you've done when two thousand three. I'm a scientist. I'm a professor at the University of Toronto so what I do is like many other academics. I write grants and I start doing research. I'm interested in understanding. If there are ways that we can better anticipate how diseases spread. I become particularly fascinated with the global airline transportation network as a conduit for the global spread of infectious diseases. It's often said that we're just an airplane ride away. Can we understand this global network connecting the planet? If we can understand those we may be able to better anticipate how diseases will spread. But I think one of the key issues really is optimization of time and this is a theme that we're hearing quite a bit disgust around Kobe. Nineteen time is a non-renewable resource. You don't get it back and you've got to be using your time in the most effective and efficient way possible so in twenty thirteen. That's what I ended out. Founding Blue Dot the belief and thesis there was we have the raw ingredients to bill the Digital Global Early Warning System for infectious diseases. Let's accelerate that. Let's actually move even faster than we can. In the academic sector and draw from their various talents that are out there in machine learning and medicine and Epidemiology. And let's bring a diverse group together to tackle this problem because we know the next threat is coming. We can't tell you exactly when it's going to appear but we know that there will be threats arising and then not too distant future. I'm happy if you'd like to Kinda talk you through the pillars of this global early warning system and how they're all integrated and how they go from detection to assessment of risks to dissemination of knowledge to empower some kind of response in time action. I think he'll be helpful. Because it seems to me. You broken the code. Well thinking about a worldwide management system for anticipating in focusing on Communicable Diseases. Not just pandemics viruses. So well has through how this works. The first one is detection. We have to be able to detect outbreaks and threats early. Because that's how we give ourselves lead time what we learned during the SARS outbreak. Was that if we wait for official reports from government agencies about outbreaks. We may be waiting longer than we would like. The next is dispersion. We know that humans have become the vectors that are carrying many of these diseases around the world just to put this in perspective last year in. Twenty nineteen the world traveled over seven trillion kilometers on commercial flights. I mean we actually analyze all these data and to put that in perspective. That's over twenty thousand round trips to and from the Sun. This is a lot of movement about a trillion of that actually comes just from travel to and from the United States which is the largest and most mobile population on Earth. So we recognize that these types of diseases can leap across continents so the next pillar or the third is what we would call disruption and this is a hard one. This is one where continuing to work on now. Diseases spread around the world all the time. Now I see them in the emergency department in my hospital people with malaria ending gay fever and other types of infections. But they don't all cause outbreaks. Now what is it that actually triggers an outbreak? And this is sometimes called the Infectious Disease Triangle. That the impact from a micro really lies at the crossroads of the characteristics of the pathogen. Or the microbe itself the attributes of the population in which it exists as well as the environmental conditions where it exists so as you can imagine for every single microbe there is a different footprint the fourth one is dissemination of knowledge. This is a really important one for me. And the way that information typically flows is it typically goes about an outbreak. If there's news of an outbreak the first audience said typically learns about it is the Public Health Sector. And that's because their job is to understand what's happening in the population now. Certainly we know that. Not every government necessarily in public health agency has the appropriate resources both capital and human resources to be able to conduct this kind of surveillance but nonetheless typically find out first. Then there's kind of a trickle down effect that happens to the healthcare community. We need to be empowering governments public health agencies and other branches of government so that they actually are better able to protect their citizens..

"You'll hear about blue dot later in the episode, but I wanted to ask Dr Khan about the SARS epidemic as a physician specializing in infectious disease with extensive training in Public Health Dr Khan was on the front line of this. Public Health Emergency. Going perhaps back to two thousand two, and and to the the SARS outbreak if you could tell us a little bit more about what happened. And what were some of the controversies in terms of you know the response to it, and you know things that we learned that perhaps might have formed blue dot, and might inform response to pandemics going forward well, if we just you know kind of compare and contrast a little bit of where we are today, and what happened with SARS. SARS started to circulate. It's believed in Guangdong Province in sometime in late, two, thousand and two. I think a key difference from what we are experiencing today is that the world really didn't have a clue as to what was going on in Guangdong Province until that epidemic started to amplify. It ultimately reached Hong Kong which of course is one of the largest airports in the world, and then quickly dispersed to these vast geographic locations around the world. Toronto being one of them. I think in terms of the things that what I saw which was pretty profound was. That this virus that nobody'd ever seen or heard before showed up in our hospitals before we knew it was a thing. and you know as an infectious disease specialist who's also trained in public health? You know if I didn't know this was going on, you know. No one really would know this is going on. This was really directly related to my specialty training, and so forth I think one of the things that I learned is when a healthcare worker gets infected. It can have a profound effect. On the broader healthcare workforce, you know people are passionate about what they do, but they wanna feel that they can come to work in an environment that is safe where they're not going to get infected themselves or you don't take a disease back home to their family, and so I think as we saw some of our peers in healthcare get infected. That was a pretty profound moment, and and you can imagine if things got bad enough and healthcare workers. Thought twice about whether they should come to work you really in a very difficult situation. If you're trying to control an outbreak so for me, that was kind of the realization that we need. Better ways to anticipate infectious disease risk not to react you know we all know how to call the Fire Department. But how do we build better smoke detectors?.

Bat Soup, Anyone? How Viruses Transfer From Animals To Humans - Yahoo News

"Let's get back to the interview. Fresh air's Dave Davies recorded yesterday with science writer. David common about the new Corona Rona virus epidemic which broke out in Wuhan China. Kwame ince's the corona virus is just the latest example of how were increasingly contracting dangerous. Viral infections since from animals in his book spillover published in Twenty twelve kwame attractive viruses spilled over from animals to infect humans with HIV West S. Nile fever anthrax. Bola and another from the corona virus family SARS severe acute respiratory syndrome which also emerged in China China. You know you're right. That as scientists tried to track down the source of the SARS virus back in two thousand three and four. They focused on this practice in southern China of eating and in some cases raising wild animals. Not kind of things that you typically think of as food or or where we don't want to just explain this trend and how it figured you're into this yes There is a vogue. There has been a vogue for eating wildlife wild animals when I was in Southern China researching searching the book only briefly. I got to see some of these markets. Where all form of wild animal were on sale A lot of the trade by the time I got there had gone underground because it was suppressed after the SARS outbreak but then it gradually came back and it had been allowed to continue in you again and proliferate win this new virus began but if you go into a live market and you see cages containing bats stacked upon cages containing porcupines stacked upon cages containing palm civics stacked upon cages containing chickens and hygiene is not great and and the animals are defecating on one. Another it's just a natural mixing bowl situation for viruses. It's very very dangerous situation and and one of the things that it allows. Dave is something that we haven't mentioned. I think so far and that is the occurrence of of amplifying hosts hosts that are not the reservoir host the permanent hiding ground of a new virus but represent intermediates between the reservoir of our host and the human population for instance those horses in Australia. From the point of view of a horse they were ultimate hosts and they were being killed by this virus but from the human point of view they were amplifier hosts the virus got into them it multiplied abundantly it caused them to froth and Chauque and bleed through their nostrils veterinarians and trainers. Were trying to take care of them. They amplified the virus. So that One trainer in one stable form and got very sick from that virus in the case of this new corona virus. One of the questions is was there. An amplifier host in that wet market where these cages are stacked are called wet markets white wire called wet markets. Well assume they're called wet markets because the animals are alive alive rather than butchered and in dead and refrigerated They're also wet. Because there's there's water flowing everywhere. They usually have seafood as well as as wild mammals and birds As I said hygiene isn't great. Animals are being butchered on plywood. Boards blood is flowing down into the gutters in the water and there is just a great Liquidity Mix in these markets at at their worst now when scientists were trying to track down the origin of the SARS virus Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome which was associated with the virus in in the early two thousands. They eventually focused focused on something called the civic cat What is that? That's right the civic cat is not really a cat. It's more accurately called the palm palm civic the civic type of mammal that belongs to the to the family of Mongooses But it's a it's a medium sized animal and and it is both captured from the wild for food and captive bred and raised for food And it was the first big eggs suspect of In the SARS outbreak It was found that some of the people who got sick very early on had eaten a butchered civic and so in the civic head though the the antibody for this this virus right and they and they tested him civics and they found they found evidence of the virus. They found antibodies. Antibodies or fragments of DNA A. R. N. A.. In these civics suggesting that they had been infected with the virus and That didn't prove they were the reservoir host but it made them the number one suspect until a couple of Chinese scientists did further work and they established that in fact virus was not living permanently in the civic population in the wild or in captivity. It was it had a different reservoir host it was living in bats and it had passed presumably market somewhere it had passed from a bat into one or more sits and they became the amplifier host. Right and the the Chinese government I think decreed that all sits in captivity would be slaughtered. Right that's right. Thousands of sits in captivity were butchered an an electric electrocuted and and smothered and drowned In this I panicked blind reaction in China to the SARS outbreak. Now when you were looking at you actually went to China with and spent some time in the field with people who were investigating this right. Tell us tell us about that experience. I I went. I went with a fellow named Alexi. Kamara was working as a researcher for a group. That's called ECO health alliance based in New York A group of disease scientists who study see these emerging viruses these emerging pathogens in animals around the world. They generally have cross training in Virology Veterinary Medicine Ecology combinations nations of skills so Alexi was one of them Alexi and a number of Chinese colleagues and I flew to a city called Gua Lynn In the province of Guangdong southern China and we went out climbing into into caves that caves in the karst mountains the limestone stone mountains and hills outside of the city of Gwynn Looking to trap Various different kinds of small bats insectivores bats not giant fruit bats Small bats at lived in these caves including Horseshoe bats which is a particular group of bats so that Alexi and his colleagues could draw draw blood samples and test those for Looking for the SAR SARS virus that point or or any other virus that suspect unit. Just describe a little bit of what what it felt like to be trapping bats and these caves well. It was a little bit claustrophobic. It's not for everybody. Had Castle Castro. We climbed through. We climbed on our bellies through a very low hole to get into one of these caves. We had we had to squirm down and then and up through this whole to get into the cave and then the cave opened out and Alexi and his Chinese colleagues had essentially pillowcases and butterfly nets. And that's how we caught these bats. The Bat started flying around and they would catch them in butterfly nets and they were wearing gloves and and they would untangle a bat from a butterfly net and then Drop it into one of these cloth bags that were like pillowcases. And in this case as I recall they they would tire tied the knot often then handed to me and I would go over and and hanging on sort of a clothesline. So that the bad dangle and we were doing this I don't know if we were in there for a couple of hours oddly enough. We were not wearing masks of any sort we were not wearing with the called. Personal Protective Equipment has met suits or anything and and described this in the book. I asked Alexi. Why the hell

Has China lost Taiwan?

"Taiwan's president secured secured a second term over the weekend started scenes of the woman who stood up to China because China always believe China. Taiwan's recent election is widely seen as a watershed moment a referendum between Wayne. Two very different choices saw in win. She's the president since two thousand sixteen. She promised to protect Taiwan's freedoms from an increasingly assertive. He said he's an autocratic Beijing or the nationalist combing Tung came to the opposition which stressed causes ties with Beijing. The result a landslide two cy and her ruling independence leading Democratic Progressive Party. It was her warnings about China that hit home. We've voters this threat Israel with these respect from China situation has changed you. You cannot exclude the possibility of a war. And it's high invading. Taiwan is something that is going to be very costly fled China Taiwan's president saw in win on the basis now. She scored move odds than any other presidential candidate since Taiwan hi one began holding democratic elections in Nineteen ninety-six. So why has Beijing's efforts to control. Taiwan was it backfired and we'll China Now back off from what it sees as a renegade province remember most nations including the United States and Australia. We adhere to the one China policy which means we formally acknowledge Beijing's claims over Taiwan but what can Washington and camera do to help this vibrant democracy of twenty ninety four million in the face of arising China. Natasha Qassam is research fellow at the Lowy Institute for International Policy where she directs the annual Lowy Institute suit poll. She's a former Australian diplomat. And he wants is emeritus professor of Strategic Studies at the Australian National University and author of how to defend Australia. He's a former deputy defense secretary. Natasha Hugh Welcome to Iran. To be with you thanks for having is time now Natasha. Why has China lost the battle for public opinion in Taiwan? Look I do think there's a real question as to whether China ever had a chance in this respect. You've got a longstanding up position in Taiwan to unification with China. You've got a long standing position to one country. Two Systems the model that China developed in the eighties Fulbari Taiwan and Hong Kong. And of course we see the problematic way that's playing out in Hong Kong today but the most important issue here I think has been the emergence of a unique Taiwanese identity entity. This is what has really changed over the last decade the majority of Taiwanese people they see themselves as Taiwanese and in part this is in opposition to a growing authoritarian -tarian reach from China but in pilots a product of Taiwan's transition to democracy. It's unique history in terms of its different periods of colonization and indigenous peoples. I think today we can say that. This far more that divides Taiwan and China then unites them. Is that growing sense of independence in Taiwan. And Natasha you mentioned Hong Kong and how that was supposed to be the roadmap for China's One Country Two Systems policy the clearly rebuked in these elections hugh. How does Beijing you all these? Well I think they must be very gloomy very concerned and I think getting pretty angry because I completely agree with Tushar I think the elections very significant because it confirms assumes absolutely that the prospect of an eventual consensual reunification of Taiwan agreeing to be absorbed or reabsorbed helped by the mainland looks more and more remark and the problem for everyone including for Taiwan is that Beijing is very unlikely to accept except that Beijing for Beijing reunification as I sit bringing Taiwan back into China is an essential part of their agenda of Xi. Jinping's agenda to for the rejuvenation as he calls it off of China overcoming of that century of humiliation which which began with the opium wars lower back in the forties and which she has set himself to overcome overturn. I think for him getting Taiwan back as he I would say it is. There is nothing more important to him. Nothing more important to the Communist Party and so we have The seats of a real tragedy because as Natasha says it's clear and clear that the Taiwanese don't want to be part of China and it says clearest safe obtain the Chinese determined to make it part of I hear you say Washington Santon. Sorry Beijing won't accept Taiwan's growing assertiveness but hasn't by aging conduct here been counterproductive. I think of John is if it's to intensify military not exercises around the Taiwan Strait. If it's to US light diplomatically. A Taiwan a hasn't that just stiffened the resolve of the tonys. ESO expected. Has I think I think that's been effector I think is Natasha. Says I think what's happened in. Hong Kong has has disabused anyone in Taiwan of any illusions about what one-country-two-systems three two systems would really mean. If it was applied to talk to Taiwan I think the growing authoritarian nature of the Chinese Communist Party ruled in China itself under under Shuzhen Ping Has Added to that. Boils I think as Natasha says again. That that the the the long term development of Taiwan itself Tallinn's entity that the the evolution of a very vibrant democracy there Meant that perhaps. Whatever Beijing done even if Beijing it'd be much less frightening that it has been it still would have been unlikely that Taiwan would move voluntarily to do what Beijing once and it's actually is hugh why wrought out here and he's not alone? We've had on this program over the last few years Professor Jon Meacham from the University of Chicago. The argument here is that not only will China be much more powerful awful than it is today but it will also remain deeply committed to making Taiwan part of China. I think she's deadline. Is this attender of the Communist revolution. Which would be a twenty four nine in other words? Tom Is on China. Saad your response. I disagree that Taiwan is really significant priority for Xi Jinping's China. But I think it's important when we think about what their highest priority is and for me that is always the domestic legitimacy of the potty state and and so by Beijing's policies primarily directed at that domestic audience. They might be failing in Taiwan but suddenly what they ought designed to do is to demonstrate two people in China that Beijing holds all the cards that they have a able to exit military pressure on Taiwan that they can exclude Taiwan from international organizations and that is the highest priority and under Xi Jinping's China. I think the hotline inflexible policies will just continue for godless. The effect that they have in Taiwan. But at the same time I do think it's a self fulfilling prophecy to argue that China will become so powerful so we should roll over and do nothing and therefore it will allow be allowed to become even more all powerful in military and economic times. I think this is almost a given Alpha China. But it's not a given in terms of China's power. China's power has been restricted in the region winslow in many ways many countries including Australia do not recognize the ages over the as traders say. China hasn't succeeded in achieving. Its goals in the South China Sea. It hasn't succeeded in closing bases in Japan. There's that in South Korea in numerous ways. I wouldn't say that time is on China side if anything I I think. China as a rational actor recognizes the cost of a protracted war a much higher than the cost of their patients on that knowledge has as Shea Jingping pink overreach. The embroiled other countries led by the US but including Australia to a newly skeptical view of Chana. I look clearly Thomas. China's Powell grows as system becomes more authoritarian as the way it seeks to exhibit influence throughout the region becomes to put it politely a more assertive a lot of countries. You Niger and beyond becoming more and more worried about what. China's power and hatch on is going to use its power mains over the next few decades but that I think we'd be too optimistic to imagine that China is somehow becoming a self limiting problem. I do think Jonah's power has grown. I think it's influences growing there. It's I still true. Of course. There's Natasha is that there are lots of things at China would like it. It hasn't yet got but I'm more pessimistic than she is that about China's capacity not to get its way increasingly as time goes on and it's worth bearing in mind all the things that China does get that yes Not everyone accepts what China wants to do in the just south China Sea but Australia. Itself hasn't undertaken serious remove navigation operations Australia and self does not acknowledge China as a strategic rival. The United States does Japan treating China increasingly cool. She asleep as it becomes less and less confident about Donald Trump's America. And we'll push you. It's Responsibilities towards Japan onto the treaty. So I think actually China is doing pretty well. I think we've made a big mistake. To underestimate raced tonight. But China's resolve in its capacity to use. Its Influence to get what it wants. I guess. Hugh Watt for my new and Tasha Qassam from from lowy and we're talking about Taiwan and China in the wake of the all in democracies election widely seen as a rebuke to Beijing. The TASHA you say Beijing's going to weaken Taiwan's democracy house. Oh look I think I said that it was going to try and I think it is trying in many ways. It's trying through disinformation Ryan and bypassing more media outlets in Taiwan and then controlling the narrative in that way it is certainly trying to infiltrate grassroots organizations like temple organizations sations and farmers and fisheries groups. The thing is that Beijing is very much moving away. I think from trying to support. Just one side of politics. The Guangdong Minggong which has always been seen as more friendly towards Beijing insofar as has been unsuccessful because the dog is not able to as. We've all of the reasons since we've already outlined. They are not able to deliver Taiwan in any way because of the way of public opinion against China. So now I believe that Beijing is trying to undermine undermine the democracy itself to undermine people's faith in institutions trying to essentially mess it up I think the best expression I've had tended into Crimea so that you have a government paralyzed a government that people do not trust and in that way the system would be much weaker. You Natasha to agree that Beijing is going to try awaken Taiwan's democracy and certainly badging will increase the pressure to open talks on reunification. I suppose the question here is wise. China so sensitive about Taiwan one. I mean think about it Taiwan or Formosa as it was earlier known. It's only been part of China for something like four out of the past one hundred twenty twenty five years since Japanese colonization nineteen ninety-five four out of one hundred twenty five and those four years when the nationalists who fled to Taiwan. They were running the mainland alien so why the sensitivity. He what. We'll Tom Because one hundred and twenty five years is not very long time in the way of China's paypal and the Chinese government see themselves CBS and has precisely one hundred and twenty five years that I see correctly in some ways as being a very black period in the history and that the the great mission of the Communist Party has been to bring China out of that as I said before the rejuvenation of the Chinese people. It's hard to underestimate. Overestimate the the emotional power Al behind this idea of China returning to its previous position and Taiwan has become a and the Chinese Communist Party has made Taiwan into a a symbol of everything bad that happened to China before and everything that Diane resolved to fix and the way in which they they put Hong Kong back into into the fold the YM which have grown their economy the way in which they have reasserted China's military power and have trying at least to reassert itself the parish cultural pass at a speak. All of that is part of the deal but Taiwan is in a sense that the jewel in the crown for them and so I think the the political political and to a certain extent the emotional fright that the Taiwan issue carries does make it absolutely central to the Communist. Party's not just its own sense of itself but it's confidence that it can continue command. The loyalty and achieved legitimacy in the eyes of the Chinese people as what Communist Party delivers not just in terms of prosperity but in terms of China's dignity and position in the world symbolized by Taiwan that is so central to its legitimacy as the government of China Anna. And does that mean Natasha Qassam. That is now a very real danger that the listen Beijing takes from size relection. Is that the only way. Taiwan will ever a unify with mainland China. As at the end of a gun. Look that's entirely possible but I have to say I'm not convinced that as an argument mainly because we like to think think of China's military palate in terms of it being this very quick victory. RV Taiwan because they are coming late outgunned in that sense but none nothing about this would be. It would be very difficult to take Taiwan in terms of its geography and even an invasion is really just the beginning. When you have twenty four a million people who don't want to be a part of your country you have? Refugees flocking to other countries in the region including Australia. You'll have resistance in the streets. You'll have disruption to global supply chains at which Taiwan lies at. Its hot this is not an easy proposition. It is laden with

British Girl Finds Christmas Card Message From Shanghai Prisoner

"A six year old girl in south London was writing Christmas cards to the kids in her class when she found a bizarre message written inside one of the cards it said in part we are our foreign prisoners forced to work against our will. Please help us. The card was made in China and the message appeared to be written by a factory worker. NPR's Frank Langfitt is watching all of this from London. He frank the high well. So what do we know about what happened here. Well the the girl names Florence Whitaker. My believe was opening up to to write to a friend and Inside the note also said it was it was written I think in caps it said please. He's notify Human Rights Organization. And please contact. Peter Humphry now Peter Humphrey lives in In Greater London he's a he was a corporate fraud investigator. Who served serve time in this exact prison ching-kuo Shanghai suburb now? Humphry was eventually released in two thousand fifteen and the family reached out to Humphry Who wrote about in the Sunday Times of Humphries to be a Reuters reporter The cord was sold by the British supermarket. Chain TESCO TESCO has said they're suspending any orders on on these cards And are investigating so in the meantime the Chinese Foreign Ministry says this is a hoax. They say it's just not true. Are they offering any evidence. Install not yet that I've seen but the Chinese company that made the cards is emphatic. That it never contracted with this prison. Outside of Shanghai and saying the charge of using forced labor is completely fabricated. Now the the Foreign Ministry. Actually this is very curious. Noel actually blames Humphry. Personally don't says that that he's suggests that he's behind all of this. Now there's a there's a past year. The Chinese government said Humphry was imprisoned for illegally collecting citizens information. I've talked to Humphrey Humphry on the phone. He says that Charles Bogus. It was never heard in court and he actually says he recognizes the handwriting of the card as a prisoner that he he knew when he was in the prison and now I asked him about the foreign ministry's claim that he's behind this and Humphry says this is just a typical kind of response that the government uses to any accusations about human rights abuses. This is the kind of opposite you get you get a lie. You get a complete lie in response. The one thing about this message is is a little bit different. Maybe it's very. He's very personal attack on me accusing Fabricating Story But you know. I didn't invent a little girl in south London than her father who have never known in my life and I didn't invent the message handed to me So it's absolutely ridiculous. Okay that was. Peter Humphry Frank. You were based in Shanghai for five years. Did you ever come across stories like this. Yeah it's actually not all that uncommon. These sorts of messages tend to surface in Chinese products. Every few years There back in two thousand twelve. There's a woman in Oregon who discovered an account of torture in Halloween decorations. That were made in China Back in two thousand fourteen. I interviewed on American sociology. Professor is named Stuart Foster. He'd served time for theft and I talked him after he got out From prison from jail actually and he said he'd been forced to assemble Christmas. slights in a jail in Guangdong Province. His quota was three thousand lights. I think a day and he said the prisoners who didn't meet quotas were beaten. This is what he told me. There was one one particular leader during the month of July that was particularly sadistic braided. A few of the Christmas light cores together and e would come up behind inmates that were working slow and slash them across the back. Now now foster told me that he remembered one inmate being whipped and this this inmate was mentally slow foster thought he could actually see the welts warm on his his back after he was struck. And after I did that story no L. I I've been I've received messages on facebook and elsewhere from other former inmates saying that they've made Christmas ornaments and things like that in Chinese prisons. All sounds outrageous. What did human rights groups say about? What's going on and on there? They say that this is kind of standard operating procedure. We're in a lot of prisons. In China. Prison business is prison. Manufacturing and and sort of providing labor is big business. You can find advertisements online's online for this and Human Rights Watch resume estimates. There could need millions working at this. I was talking to your Chiro Wong. She's a research with human rights. Watch and this is how she put according adding to Chinese law that prisoners as long as you have ability to labor. You'll have to labor so you know. Forced Labor is given imprisoned in China in the couple of seconds we have left their labor. Lots in China. Right there are but what a Yoyo says. The prison system is opaque and they don't follow

The pride of the PLA

"That's not every day you get to go on a Chinese warship, but for China. Correspondent Bill Birtles the rare opportunity came up during a naval fleet. Review off the port city of ching Tao, and, despite terrible, weather, and heavy handed media management. He says it was a day out like no other. Several kilometers out to sea of China's east coast, watching the pride of the Palay nineties flight go by, at close range from my vantage point on a training ship. Chidi Guang, China's first aircraft carrier. The Liaoning is just one hundred meters away, and yet I can barely see it. It's almost completely lost in the heavy fog and constant rain. The reason I was on a Chinese navy, ship in the middle of a massive international fleet review was because of diplomacy. This actually wasn't my first time on a Chinese warship my very first assignment for the IB see and China was to cover joint drills between the astride Sean's and Chinese off the coast of Guangdong province back ban. I managed to get on a Chinese ship in the port, but this time was different. We were. Being taken out to witness more than thirty Chinese submarines destroyers and the carrier go by president Xi Jinping was on Jason ship observing the review that they were also seventeen foreign ships, including HMO Melvin, which is why we were invited. Astrid was in good company. The Japanese South Koreans Vietnamese and Indians were among the nations that sent ships like Astrid area, all of them had their differences with China yet, this was a goodwill parade. The city of ching, Dow was in lockdown for the event, I asked one tourist retiree if he was excited about watching the naval parade from the shore, he told me he was disappointed that police had blocked all the roads to ching Dow's Haba. So we couldn't walk down and see all the ships himself. He wasn't happy about it. But as I was. Talking to him a couple came over and corrected him sighing the heavy handed security misses a normal and other countries do the same. They were Cain to assure me. It wasn't security. Overkill, Justin necessary safety measure. Of course. If the strategy indefens- falls gathered more than fifty ships in sight. Sydney Haba for a parade and then blocked all the access to the harvest side. I suspect people would not be too happy, but this is China and extreme security is the norm here. So then it was time for what when Cam for the fleet review with my cameraman Steve Young. We convened at the hotel with other invited journalists and began the first of many security checks. All our equipment was meticulously sqauad. We were. Then boss to the port where we went through to lots of airports styles security to get onto the ship. It took ages. But once on board, we will take into a lodge, dining room where we were served a box lunch vacuum packed bheith assaulted Koenig, some cake, and fruit. And then now ship again. Chugging out to see all this was fairly smooth, but there was one very obvious problem. We've come to ching now to get amazing shots of dozens of warships lined up fighter jets in formation flying above us. The might of China's rapidly growing navy on full display and yet the weather was atrocious. Thick fog and constant rain meant we could barely see more than one hundred meters in front of us when it was time for the parade to begin. We couldn't see more than one ship at a time Justice, the Ryan new intensified further, the announcing declared the Liaoning aircraft carrier was going by this was the mine event after all, and yet everyone on day was staring into the grave wondering where the heck it was. West for us is the moment when the astride Ian ships, sail by Steve long couldn't see HMAS Melvin even with the maximum zoom on his camera, you couldn't take a worse style for Nival fleet review and with it over, we scrambled to a pace to camera on dick. This is awesome flexing a celebration. I tonight Melvin from Friday or is here. I thought my summarize something senior Chinese official had said at a function, the night before that the parade, according to China wasn't about muscle flexing. And yet, one of my military minders listening in took umbrage at that as the ship chopped back to poor. He warned us that we must delete that he's the camera or risk access to the navy in future. Such threads and not uncommon in China. But it seemed to me it was a bit light to be threatening us given that all the filming was done in the story pretty much finished the pace the cameras stayed in our report as Dido all ou- shots of the warships lost in the fog. Visually stunning naval parade. It wasn't but a Diana's, see with China's navy is not something you forget easily. The frustrations of correspondence life, Bill Birtles, there reporting from Beijing or ching Tao, more accurately.

Tencent Will Sell Switch in China

"Authorities in the southern Chinese province of Guangdong have given approval to ten cent to begin selling the Nintendo. Switch console with a test version of Super Mario brothers in their sources tell Reuters that approval in Guangdong were tencent is registered opens the door to sell the console nationwide. So won't be just in a limited area in China. If you didn't realize the ministry of culture and tourism has oversight over video game hardware. That's why they needed that ministry's approval to sell it. However video games themselves need to be approved by China's state administration of press publication, although test versions of games don't need licenses as long as they're giving away for free. That's why they can bundle in Super Mario brothers. The man there is a backlog because they put a pause on approving new video games last year and tencent is actually one of the companies turning from this because they've started approving them again. But there's a huge backlog so bringing a new game. The market in China right now is problematic because they're still approving games. From last summer. I can't believe that. We're still talking about anything. That's like it's news when China allow something in after all these years is as a business savvy as the Chinese government seems to be I would think that they would like, you know, what this stuff makes money for folks. Let's let it in. Let's figure out ways to make money off of it. And you know, and it's almost as if like they're creating this line just to create the line. So that it's still yell seems kind of the unicorn thing, oh, we'll let you win. It just doesn't make any sense to have this much resistance to stuff like this. Also interested how you know. Okay. So the Nintendo switch pardon me being available in the country for anybody. Who's I dunno it in China or knows a lot about what what folks are are clamoring for is this going to be a big seller?
