Ce que le communiqué de l’EHESS occulte, c’est d’où viennent ces menaces et pressions qui semblent pourtant très explicites. Ne pas nommer les malfaisants, c’est déjà leur céder.

3) the whole thing if it moves forward with huge promises for purchases as reported - absolutely not WTO compliant - will anger every other trade partner of China. This agreement at the expense of third parties is the worst case scenario coming true?

2) But the US will be in a position to cancel the commitment and leave the treaty at any time, while China will say its commitments were general, not specific. Unpredictability suits Trump and China has to settle for it.

1) Explanation: Trump is right on MoUs. China signs MoUs all the time (such as BRI MoUs) and they are hardly binding. But a « trade agreement » carries an air of finality. It seems China might concede this (after all it signed on to WTO with a lot of empty promises).

L’inoubliable historien du Grand Bond et de la Révolution Culturelle dont il était contemporain a montré qu’on pouvait voir à travers les idéologies malgré la rareté des sources et sans recourir à la sinologue classique.

What’s unusual is the frankness, and the complete contradiction with recent Huawei statements that it does not follow the state. There is something called lying to our faces.

2) Still, this alleged citation from Huawei founder Ren Zhengfei is worth pondering: “In China, state that Huawei strongly supports the Communist Party of China. Outside China, stress that Huawei always follows key international trends.”

1) This story from repentant foreign advisers to Huawei (as if they had not known what they were getting into...) also shows how far Western business and political elites can go to make a buck How Huawei lost its PR battle in the west via

Oui. Intensifier la police sémantique, sera immédiatement saisi par ceux qui veulent confondre la lutte contre l’Islam politique imposé avec l’islamophobie. L’antisémitisme donne assez de travail. Et l’hypocrisie de certains anti sionistes, c’est un hommage du vice à la vertu.

La précaution idéologique de cette première phrase est indigne d’un homme d’Etat. On se fiche de ce que pense des idées de Finkielkraut. Un citoyen se fait menacer par une meute de fascistes et vous chipotez pour ne pas choquer vos électeurs, M.Hamon? Pas brillant.

Il est temps de sévir contre la violence, et la violence de ces hurlements antisémites à visage découvert est trop le signe que leurs auteurs se croient assurés de l’impunité.
