Here’s a level of analysis few will be interested in, but #MagnitskyAct sanctions on #Russia have benefitted #China’s strategic interests the most. No doubt, @MFA_Russia @RusEmbUSA are probably only starting to realize that #HSBC — the #HongKong-#Shanghai Banking Corp. — is/was…
… the epicenter of the movement to sanction #Russia. Today, the architect of the #MagnitskyAct sanctions, @BillBrowder (former employer of the late accountant Sergei #Magnitsky), is only beginning to weakly endorse the idea of sanctioning #China, and the reason is incredibly…
… transparent: the institutional custodian of #BillBrowder’s sprawling #HermitageCapital empire — #HSBC — is too “captured” by #China’s markets for him to lobby loudly for sanctions on #Beijing’s despots. Does #Russia remember how quiet #CCP officials were during the passage…

Playing with #DigitalFire:

1/7: In martial arts, one of the best moves is to take an attacker's weapon and turn it back on them. In 2016, that's just what #Beijing did – in #cyberspace:

2/7: After #American operatives used a particular bit of code to attack #Chinese computer systems, Chinese hackers took it, repurposed it, and used it to attack a bunch of US allies.
3/7: The Chinese simply seem to have spotted a #US #cyberintrusion and snatched the code, often developed at huge expense to #American taxpayers.

With #US sanctions on #Iran, this is the time for #Pakistan to squeeze #Tehran on #IRGC's destabilization inside Pak+alliance with #India in #Afghanistan+#Chabahar. #Islamabad should leverage IRGC's use of Pakistani markets/ports for smuggling and evading
#US sanctions. #Pakistan should not look away this time as it did during #Iran-#Iraq war in 80s when #IRGC used Pak facilities to dodge sanctions. Let's remember how the Pasdaran, who are #India's allies in Iran, bluntly threw Dr AQ Khan under the bus in 2003 creating the biggest
crisis for #Pakistan's nuclear program, and how #Iran joined #India diplomats in openly lobbying #China to end #CPEC part of #BRI bcz "#Balochistan is not safe" while sponsoring terrorism to ensure #Beijing changes its mind. This is the moment to isolate

Why‘s @KimDotcom so pro-#China? Why‘s @Snowden not critical of #Beijing? There seems to be a red thread tying both to #HongKong. Of that clique, only @WikiLeaks#Assange has been vocally anti-#CCP. Now, after #INAPapers show @Lenin was bribed by China’s #Sinohidro, he’s gagged.
… another oddity at the nexus of the #Ecuador/#UK/#Assange standoff: #Manafort was lobbying on behalf of #China’s efforts to “invest” in Ecuador’s grid & “trade” Assange. Now we find out from #INAPapers that Presidenté #Moreno was bribed by #Sinohydro. 🤔
… is it possible that #China’s man, #Manafort, was working a multipartite deal — b/t #China/#Ecuador/#UK/#USA — to trade #WikiLeaks#Assange, possibly working bilaterally so as to keep each of the counterparties in the dark about the “full deal?”

“Win-win-win-win” cooperation?

So, #SundarPichai sells off a bunch #Google stock for BIG $$ last week just prior to his congressional testimony, offer sketchy answers RE: project w/#China, then a fire break out in their #Beijing office.

Considering all the moving parts here...it's clear that more is afoot than the players would like us to know about. The CEO of GOOG was selling off boatloads of stock just days before testifying before Congress - that's undeniable.
