Sep 2020 : The Victory
Two years back Xi Jinping took a virus victory lap. He handed out awards and medals to mark China’s success against the covid. Millions were tested in response to small outbreaks. Lockdowns and mass testing became China’s main weapons in the fight against the pandemic Chinese infections were well below many other countries. Xi Jinping extolled the Communist Party’s “superiority” as well as tenacious leadership as he proclaimed China’s “resounding success” in the epic struggle against Covid-19. “China is the first major economy to have recuperated from the crisis and achieved economic recovery, a testimony to its resilience and vibrancy… China has emerged stronger and its people are more confident and patriotic than ever,” said Xi, to a thunder of applause from the audience. Xi also jabbed “certain countries” for seeking to “besmirch China’s efforts and goodwill and shift the blame of their own undoing in fighting Covid.” He argued that China had been “transparent all along” in sharing pandemic information with the world, which “helped save tens of millions of lives around the world.”
That was then….till it turned into Defeat….
Please go through the headlines of all these articles which have been published by the South China Morning Post in just the past one week…in fact it appears that China under Xi Jinping is like a headless chicken in amaze…no vaccines…no medicines..scared of infections…no insurance…no clear picture of what to do next…hospital shortage….staff shortage…confusion confounded!
Just think. All these articles are from Chinese media which subsidise the truth heavily. If your mainline media news platform comes with such headlines in your country what would you think is happening in your country?. Add to this the security situation in the Chinese vicinity is going south as pointed in my article yesterday @ https://gunnersshot.com/2022/12/17/a-peek-into-everyday-china-the-crowded-indo-pacific/. The economic situation is also not so great. The larger picture which comes out is that there is panic in China. If ever you want to analyse a case of ‘Victory into Defeat’…this is it….
