Not only is China suffering under Xi's policies Mother Nature is doing her bit as well.

Extreme China heatwave could lead to global chaos and food shortages.

Xi will be accusing other countries for steeling his rain soon. LOL

China rocked by ‘catastrophic’ heatwave with hottest October day on record.

So manufacturing and hydro power industries will remain hamstrung for some time yet and others may freeze to death in the forthcoming winter.

They could buy some water from us here as we have more than we want ATM. :-D

Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen says Taiwan Won't 'Depend on Others' for Defense, but will need help to break a blockade as they draw their red lines against Chinese incursions.

Loses for China are wins for others.

Big tech companies are moving production out of China over geostrategic concerns.

Ouch! China's tech industry crashes as semiconductor sanctions come into effect.

China’s semiconductor industry rocked by US export controls.

It doesn't bode well for Xi's next 5yrs.

It looks like Xi will continue with his economy damaging policy as many other countries move on.

China vows to continue with 'dynamic-clearing' COVID strategy.

Now this is going to make Xi happy, not.

Violent unrest in Chinese city of Guangzhou over strict Covid restrictions.

The people are growing restless.

China might be phasing out of its COVID-zero era, but experts warn 'there is no playbook or exit strategy'.
