“American Secretary of State, Anthony Blinken demands China release Canadian Businessman Convicted of Spying”
Danny just heard the news about Mr Blinken’s demands….but this is all far from funny.
So, let us just get this straight. Sorry, this is going to be a long sentence….but here goes,
The Government of the United States, in Washington, is “demanding” that another nation’s government, China, release a convicted spy, who isn’t American but a citizen of a third nation, Canada, all whilst, Canada, had previously apprehended – on possibly dubious legal grounds – a highly prominent Chinese business lady who had broken no Canadian laws, but was apprehended simply because the United States asked Canada to do so, on the grounds that the Chinese business lady is alleged by the United States government to have undertaken normal business dealings – again, not involving America – and breaking no laws of Canada or China, with yet a fourth nation, Iran – who America doesn’t like – dealings through a Hong Kong bank, and where she wasn’t breaking any laws of Iran or Hong Kong either, and all whilst the American government is refusing to drop its charges against the citizen of a fifth (or is it sixth?) nation, Australia, who is also not American, and who is being held in solitary confinement conditions commonly described as torture, by a sixth (or seventh) nation, Britain, for reasons most people would classify as bogus due to the captive being a genuine whistleblower and therefore protected by legal rights?
Phew – that took some effort.
It is beyond the ability of language to describe these events. Which is actually the subject of another post coming shortly.
In the meantime, all we can do is to share these arrogant atrocities carried out in the name of democracy and freedom, with as many people as we can to highlight the events transpiring out of a dieing empire’s struggle to see itself, and its own horrors, in the mirror.
We can only hope and pray that this dieing empire – America – doesn’t take us all with it.
