China Threatens Australia Over Corona Investigation
China has recently been trying to keep it's head down and act like everything is ok. This is a big change from their earlier actions where they were pointing a finger in our direction claiming the United States was somehow responsible for this pandemic. But it appears Australia has awoken the Red Nation when they demanded a private investigation into how this pandemic started. The Chinese were less than thrilled. They answered Australia's request for an investigation by threatening the land down under.
"In the interview, Chinese Ambassador to Australia Cheng Jingye admitted that China’s response to the pandemic has not been “perfect.”
On the matter of Australia siding with the U.S. on wanting an investigation into China, Cheng said, “It’s a kind of pandering to the assertions that are made by some forces in Washington. Over a certain period of time, some guys are attempting to blame China for their problems and deflect the attention.”
“So what is being done by the Australia side?” Cheng continued. “The proposition is a kind of teaming up with those forces in Washington and to launch a kind of political campaign against China.”
“The Chinese public is frustrated, dismayed and disappointed with what Australia is doing now,” Cheng continued. “I think in the long term… if the mood is going from bad to worse, people would think ‘Why should we go to such a country that is not so friendly to China?’ The tourists may have second thoughts."
“It is up to the people to decide. Maybe the ordinary people will say ‘Why should we drink Australian wine? Eat Australian beef?'"
China has been lying to their people left and right about who is responsible for this pandemic. They were recently claiming their latest outbreaks were because of Russians crossing into China. And that very well could be possible since Russia is also lying about their Corona numbers. The proposed investigation would likely cause the Chinese public to doubt their leaders if it were to get out that they in fact caused it and that's the last thing a dictator wants.
