China should be utterly ashamed and apologize over the repugnant tweet, says Australian PM

Australian PM: On Monday, Australia’s PM Scott Morrison demands an apology from China over a Tweet carrying a fake photo of an Australian soldier holding the big knife over the throat of an Afghan child. 

As of late, a heightening in trade pressures between Australia and China and recommends a more souring of the overall relationship. Lately, a series of Australian businesses – from meat, grain, coal, and cotton to lobster, wine, and lumber has been the objective of anti-subsidy and against anti-dumping rules or had delayed deliveries. 

Morrison stated “It is completely outrageous and cannot be justified on any grounds… The Chinese regime should be ashamed of this tweet. It decreases them on the planet’s eyes,” Morrison stated in a press briefing. He said nations around the globe were observing how Beijing reacted to strains in Australia’s relationship with China. 

The tweet from Zhao Lijian, a representative with China’s foreign minister, seized on a report from a four-year-long official inquiry concerning the lead of Australian Special Forces soldiers in Afghanistan. Zhao composed that he was “stunned by the homicide of Afghani people and detainees by Australian soldiers” and he called for responsibility. 

The tweet was joined by an incendiary photo that seems to portray an Australian soldier slashing the throat of an Afghan kid holding a sheep, along with the caption “Don’t be afraid, we are coming to bring you peace!”

Morrison told correspondents in Canberra, “The Chinese regime should be ashamed regarding this post. It lowers them on the international eyes,” “It is a bogus picture and an awful slur on our extraordinary soldiers and the people who have served in that uniform for more than 100 years. There are without doubt pressures that exist between China and Australia, yet this isn’t how you handle them.” 

Morrison also called for the resumption of dialogue between the Chinese and Australian ministers, which have been hardened this year, after Beijing condemned the Morrison regimes for an independent inquiry concerning the handling and origin of the coronavirus pandemic.

A four-year Australian Defense Force investigation beginning this month revealed evidence of 39 homicides of Afghan citizens or detainees by 25 Australian soldiers serving in Afghanistan from 2009 to 2016. The report claimed troops would compel recruits to get their first kills by executing detainees in a training known as ‘blooding’. 

The Australian administration has established a special investigation over the charges stated in the report. Troops occupied with criminal indictments and being deprived of decorations.

Trump does not give up: “Will appeal”

Trump does not give up: “Will appeal”

Trump does not give up: A Pennsylvania federal judge rejected Donald Trump’s lawsuit to suspend the certification of millions of votes in the state. According to Judge Matthew Brann, the case, based on allegations of irregularities, is “unfounded” as no merit legal arguments and speculative accusations were presented to the court. “In the United States of America, this cannot justify depriving a single voter of the right to vote, let alone all voters in its sixth most populous state,” the judge wrote. Joe Biden in Pennsylvania has an 80,000-vote lead. Trump, however, does not give up. “Will appeal!” He tweeted, announcing he will appeal to the Pennsylvania Third Circuit Court to eventually bring the case in front the Supreme Court.

The recount in Georgia

His legal team also called for a new recount in Georgia. After the state was awarded to Biden with a lead of 12,284 votes, compared to about 14,000 votes in the first count. A possible second recount will not be manual but will take place by scanning the cards. For the past 28 years, Georgia had always gone to the Republicans, the last Democratic candidate before Biden to win it was Bill Clinton in 1992. Already on Friday, President Trump received two setbacks. The authorities of Georgia certified the subtle victory by President-elect Joe Biden, and the Michigan Republicans said after a meeting in the White House that they had found nothing to justify the reversal of the vote in their state.

The lost appeals

Trump has already lost or withdrawn about thirty appeals aimed at blocking the proclamation of the Democratic challenger after the presidential elections on November 3, but that in Pennsylvania is perhaps the most significant defeat.

The endless campaign on Twitter

Trump’s rain of tweets is dense. “Dominion-izing the vote,” he writes in bursts: part one, two, and three of conspiracy theories for a vote he does not want to accept. The social network places red labels: “Untrusted content” writes under each presidential tweet. But the discussion is underway. User comments mostly urge Trump to surrender.

 “Why is Joe Biden rapidly forming” a new administration “when my investigators have found hundreds of thousands of illegal votes sufficient to overturn” the presidential outcome “in at least four states, and thus have enough votes to win the election? ” Trump asks. Then he hopes that lawmakers and courts will have the courage to do what necessary to maintain the integrity of our elections and America. “The world is watching,” he adds. 

Trump does not intend to step aside. According to the Washington Post, he could announce his candidacy for the 2024 presidential elections by the end of the year. He would explain to his collaborators that he wanted to remain an “omnipresent force” in politics and the media. Only one president in the history of the United States has managed to get re-elected after being defeated at the end of his first term: it happened to Grover Cleveland in 1892. Except that Cleveland belonged to the Democratic Party and was a strict observer of the American Constitution.

Biden on Twitter

The president elected remains composed. He still tweeted that of election day. The others are measured, one per day, one topic at a time. Calls for the transition, peaceful, at least to begin. “Anyone who wants a Covid-19 test should be able to get one. Period.”
