The United States has accused five Chinese companies of violating sanctions against Russia by continuing to support Russia’s military, and took action this week to block them from buying American technology, the Commerce Department said. (...)

The addition of the Chinese companies to the export ban list followed a warning from Gina Raimondo, the secretary of commerce, who said in March that Chinese companies that defied U.S. restrictions against exporting to Russia could essentially be shut down. Companies that produce technology such as microchips that are made with American equipment and software can be crippled if they are added to the U.S. “entity list.”

The Chinese Embassy in Washington said on Wednesday that China and Russia were maintaining normal energy and trade cooperation and that China would take necessary measures to safeguard the rights of its companies.

“The unilateral sanctions and so-called ‘long-arm jurisdiction’ imposed by the U.S. on other countries in accordance with its domestic laws are against international law and basic norms governing international relations,” said Shao Hesong, a representative of the embassy.

Emily Feng 冯哲芸@EmilyZFengNEW: China put thousands of Uyghur kids in state boarding schools and taught Mandarin and political ideology, many of them after their parents were detained or arrested. For the first time, two children share their story from inside. With @AbduwelA.



Uyghur kids recall physical and mental torment at Chinese boarding schools in Xinjiang


ISTANBUL — In quiet, polite voices, Aysu and Lütfullah Kuçar describe the nearly 20 months they spent in state boarding schools in China's western region of Xinjiang, forcibly separated from their family.Under the watchful gaze of their father, the two ethnically Uyghur children say that their heads were shaved and that class monitors and teachers frequently hit them, locked them in dark rooms and forced them to hold stress positions as punishment for perceived transgressions.By the time they were able to return home to Turkey in December 2019, they had become malnourished and traumatized. They had also forgotten how to speak their mother tongues, Uyghur and Turkish. (The children were being raised in Turkey but got forcibly sent to boarding school during a family visit to China.)

Since 2017, authorities in Xinjiang have rounded up hundreds of thousands of Uyghurs, a largely Muslim ethnic minority group, and sent them to detention centers where they are taught Mandarin Chinese and Chinese political ideology. Camp detainees have reported being forced to work in factories during their detention or after they are released. The children of those detained or arrested areoften sent to state boarding schools, even when relatives are willing to take them in.

Experts say this is part of Chinese authorities' efforts to mold minority children into speaking and acting like the country's dominant Han ethnic group.

"This ideological impulse of trying to assimilate non-Han people corresponded with this punitive approach of putting adults in camps, and therefore lots of young children ended up in boarding kindergartens and boarding schools or orphanages," says James Millward, a professor at Georgetown University who studies Chinese and Central Asian history. "It really is an effort to try to make everyone Chinese and see themselves as Chinese and have a single cultural background."

These family separations have contributed to a slow erasure of the Uyghur language and culture in China, experts say — one of the reasons officials in the U.S., Canada, France, the Netherlands and other countries have declared that China's policies in Xinjiang amount to genocide.

China’s Weapon Test Close to a ‘Sputnik Moment,’ U.S. General Says
(...) Now, the arms race is threatening to revive. The United States has an active hypersonic program of its own, as do Russia and, among others, North Korea. But the U.S. program has run into its own technical difficulties, and the Chinese test — which appears to have not been completely successful, either — may well form the basis of a new arms race, at the very moment that President Biden has been looking for ways to avoid a proposed trillion-dollar modernization of the American nuclear forces and delivery systems.

From Wired Science Spoken Addition Podcast A must listen too story.

China is at it again with a global Swine Fever infection that have spread just outside our borders in Haiti. More than half of their pigs have been destroyed. It can be transmitted in feed, on clothing, trucks and global travel. This started in Africa 100 years ago, but has arose again in China this year, and this time it’s almost out of control. They hide all their ills form the rest of the world until it’s too late.

No vaccine or cure. No risk to humans, for now. Can travel in ham, like sandwiches, even if it is cooked or cured.

If found in the US it would shut down the meat production, devastating the economy.

So start freeing your bacon now! {#Eek}  {#Lol} 

Just kidding for now, or am I? {#Think}

This Is How Biden Can Get the Edge Over China
As a U.S. diplomat managing our relations with China, I often was asked, “What is our leverage over China?” Beijing was always either doing something we didn’t like — buying oil from Iran, building a port in Cambodia, locking up dissidents — or not doing something that we thought it should, like enforcing sanctions on North Korea or opening its market to U.S. agricultural products. We were constantly considering what sticks or carrots we might deploy to change China’s behavior. There were no easy answers; frustrations over the insufficiency of our leverage and our inability to “change China” are longstanding. But China’s growing power exacerbates the problem. And in this era of great power competition, the need to accrue and use leverage to influence Chinese actions has never been greater. President Biden himself has acknowledged that leverage when it comes to China is lacking. Soon he will meet with China’s president, Xi Jinping. So where will the requisite U.S. leverage come from?
 
It is pretty painful to watch the stratospheric levels of western hubris when it comes to dealing with China. 

"Let's stand on a platform of human rights and fairness,  oh yeah, and let's get England and its staunchest colonies to stand beside us as a bastion of all that is good in the world."

Cripes. Cringeworthy.

That said, I can't give China a free pass on its path of asserting its national interest at the expense of smaller nations' sovereign rights either. The CCP seemingly can't and won't get the idea of international diversity as being a good thing. Something they have in common with a lot of other empire builders. Empire builders are a bad bunch, the lot of em.

The daily drums of distrust...
China’s Bullying Is Becoming a Danger to the World and Itself

Friedman likes omissions too:
Dutch restrictions on exporting such machines to China, which have been enforced since 2019, haven’t had much financial impact on ASML since it has a backlog of orders from other countries. But about 15 percent of the company’s sales come from selling older systems in China.

In a final report to Congress and Mr. Biden in March, the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence proposed extending export controls to some other advanced ASML machines as well. The group, funded by Congress, seeks to limit artificial intelligence advances with military applications.

Mr. Hunt and other policy experts argued that since China was already using those machines, blocking additional sales would hurt ASML without much strategic benefit. So does the company.

“I hope common sense will prevail,” Mr. van den Brink said.
As does the NYT.
