Gregory Copley, International Strategic Studies Association; in re: Reports that China will not assume its previous position, as the CCP [faces] having to accept some of the responsibility for the virus. No indication that China has ever stopped or ever will stop stealing intellectual property, esp military, on which it depends. Xi never had anyone to blame, but now he’s got the virus and also the world’s hostility to blame. China uses saber-rattling. The CCP is in turmoil, and Xi is looking for an external threat to save his own position. The BND warned.
