We agree with Nigel Farage, that while this is most definitely a step in the right direction, it doesn’t go nearly far, or fast, enough. Huawei is entirely owned and controlled by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), and their Army. And, it is a vehicle through which they spy on the U.S., UK, and our other allies in order to advance their agenda of global conquest, which of course is a threat to the U.S., the UK and other western deomcracies. The Brits historically are notorious for being suckers. Hello..Neville Chamberlain? To be clear, even a great guy like PM Boris Johnson wouldn’t have done this without some behind the scenes pressure from President Trump. Regardless, we’re glad they made this decision and hope they implement it quicker and more broadly. This the kind of pressure ALL of the so-called “Five Eyes” intelligence-sharing partners (i.e. Australia, New Zealand, Canada, the UK, and the United States) need to be exerting on China now more than ever.
We wish the Queen a very Happy 94th Birthday!! To see the pic of her with William and Kate, click on the text above. To see the video of her as a child mentioned above, here is the link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=heL6Ef70fdo 🙂
We like PM Boris Johnson. But, President Trump was right to tear into him over this. Huawei is entirely controlled by the Chinese government, and uses their technologies to spy on the U.S. and our allies. We’ve proven that to the UK and others on several occasions. So, if they want to sell their soul for 5G, then we need to not allow our intelligence assets to be compromised, and step back from coordinating our efforts with our British friends. That’s only smart. Hopefully those parliamentarians will scuttle the Huawei deal.
Seems as if Russia is continuing to test the boundaries, and patience, of our NATO allies. Not good! If one of these Russian jets should actually enter UK airspace, then the UK should blow it/them out of the sky. It is time to stop this dance, and put our foot down with respect to Moscow’s global bullying. Japan should absolutely do the same thing, and we should stand WITH them if they take that sort of action. In the meantime, here at The Daily Buzz, we’ve been calling on the Obama Administration to take some very specific proactive military steps to thwart Russia’s aggression. We’ve outlined these measures on many occasions over the last 10+ months. They include, but are not limited to: 1) Rebuiding the missile defense shield in Poland that Obama so foolishly had dismantled in order to appease Vlad. And, look how good that worked for us. Rebuilding that would send a message to Poland that we stand with them. Currently they feel a little abandoned. It’s time repair that relationship. That would also send a clear message to Vlad, and his fellow thugs, that we stand WITH Poland. 2) Parking an entire U.S. Navy Carrier Strike Group (CSG), not just some random destroyer, in the Baltic. Parking a major U.S. military power projection platform in mother Russia’s backyard like that would send a crystal clear message to Moscow; that we can protect our eastern European allies in the region and can react VERY quickly to ANY military threat in that region. Those are just a couple of the many military proactive measures we’ve been advocating here at The Daily Buzz for almost year. It’s time for the Obama Administration to step things up. Russia, so far, hasn’t been impressed.
This was the expected outcome.. Its the smart move for both Scotland, the UK, NATO, and our relationship with the UK. Its a also a huge bullet dodge for PM David Cameron. Anyway, seems like the majority of Scots, especially older/wiser ones, pulled back and decided that they were stronger as part of the UK (which they’ve been for over 3 centuries; longer than our country has even existed!), than as a separate nation.
