Qoute: "Still, I'm curious about what the Chinese are going achieve" WAB
I think since our President has admonished the Chinese and banned Huawei, the Chinese are using a show of force to illustrate that they can put 5G on top of the world. I have read many times that the actual top of Mount Everest is the size of a truck, so these photos are interesting.
As I understood from the accompanying text, they did not put these towers at the top itself, but somewhere near or relatively close to it. I think that having a good connection in this place will be of great benefit to everyone, no matter who did it. Of course, if the owner doesn't make inflated and overstated claims.
The President also condemns the Chinese for building small military islands in their own front yard, perhaps the Chinese are showing the U.S. and everyone else exactly where their backyard is, even if this subject is politically incorrect. Or maybe the Chinese are mad because our President blamed them for a virus that has its origins from Mrs. Gates lovely alma mater at Chapel Hill and the lovely Canadian town of Winnipeg. IMHO
I don't know all the details and I don't want to talk about politics here, but if the country itself is doing something on its territory, should it be a subject for instruction from other countries? I think that many threats in the world are very much overstated. Usually that's what they point out when they want to get some benefits for themselves. Very often they want to take advantage of it at the expense of others.
As for the virus, very little is known yet. Many very important virus scientists consider it to have happened naturally. It was created by mutations.
Our scientist Ivan Michurin (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Vladimirovich_Michurin
) said that: "We don't have wait grace from nature..." (c) After him, some of our humorists added: "...after what we did to her..." (c)
although Michurin spoke further about plant breeding...
So it's too early to draw conclusions and blame someone. Time will put everything in its place.
If I remember correctly, Colin Powell at the UN showed a test tube with an alleged "bacteriological weapon" accused Saddam Hussein of it. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bush%E2%80%93Blair_2003_Iraq_memo
.The war in Iraq has killed more than 1 million citizens
, and the information about this weapon has turned out to be a fake.
PS. Unfortunately, I won't be able to write here for some time. I'll give you all the answers later.
