M.A.D. Foreign Policy
Sometime in the 1960s the United States and Soviet Union both figured out how to destroy the world. There were about 20,000 nuclear weapons between the two countries and at any moment they could turn the globe into a pile of ash. Today there are 9 countries in possession of nuclear weapons of their own (there are many stored around the world in other countries, but they do not have direct control over these nuclear weapons). This “nuclear club” is made up of, in descending order of weapons, Russia, the United States, France, China, the United Kingdom, Pakistan, India, Israel*, and North Korea.

*- Israel neither confirms nor denies its nuclear program, they have an estimated 80 warheads

China Calls U.S. Warship Sailing In Taiwan Strait A “Provocative Act”

SNIPPET:

Taiwan’s Defence Ministry said the ship sailed in a northerly direction through the Strait, that its forces had monitored its passage and observed nothing out of the ordinary.

Taiwan is currently in a heightened state of alert due to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, nervous that China may try to take advantage of the situation to make a move on the island though the government has reported no unusual Chinese maneuvers.

Last year, U.S. naval ships transited the Strait roughly monthly. Saturday’s sailing was the first since November.

Agelbert NOTE: The MIC has been out of control for several decades now. What can you say about a military that thinks fying a pirate flag is "traditional"?

The Pirate Flagged USS Kidd isn't kidding. Though this is the only US Navy Ship allowed to "ceremonially" fly the Jolly Roger, this is just one more not so subtle hint about what the MIC's MO IS ALL ABOUT.

👋 Goedendag!*
Welcome to Tuesday, where Ukraine’s president calls Russian targeting of central Kharkiv a war crime, Russian troops are closing in on Kyiv and Die Welt reports from near the Russian exclave of Kaliningrad on the rising fear following Putin’s putting nuclear forces on high alert. We also look at how countries around the world are coming around to the controversial COVID policies of Sweden.

🌎  7 THINGS TO KNOW RIGHT NOW

• Zelensky denounces Kharkiv war crime, Russians bear down on Kyiv: The center of Kharkiv, Ukraine’s second biggest city, has been hit by a Russian strike which caused a massive explosion and destroyed a government building, after Russian forces bombarded Ukraine’s second-biggest city on Monday, killing at least 9 civilians. Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky denounced the bombardment as a war crime. At least 70 soldiers were also killed in an attack on a military unit in the eastern city of Okhtyrka. Meanwhile, satellite images show a massive 64-kilometer-long Russian military convoy is closing in on Kyiv.

• Next round of peace talks to be held in a few days: Officials from Ukraine and Russia ended peace talks on Monday at the Rumyantsev-Paskevich residence in Gomel, Belarus on Monday without any breakthrough or a secured ceasefire, but both sides agreed to meet again later this week to return with potential grounds for compromise.

• African refugees fleeing Ukraine say they face racism at border: As African governments scramble to help their nationals escape Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, reports are emerging of racist and unfair treatment of African citizens, as well as African and Indian students, at the border with Poland. The UN has reported that more than half a million people have fled Ukraine since the invasion started.

• Lockdown fears cause panic buying in Hong Kong: Hong Kong’s leader Carrie Lam urged calm after residents stripped supermarket shelves bare amid rumors and mixed messaging from the government about a potential city-wide lockdown. Authorities plan to test all 7.4 million residents at the end of this month as Hong Kong has reported more than 190,000 infections in the last two months, compared to just 12,000 in the past two years.

• Three-year military-led transition approved in Burkina Faso: Following a military coup last January, Burkina Faso’s junta has adopted a charter allowing a three-year transition period before the West African country heads to elections.

• Russia-Ukraine war affects sport and entertainment: Hollywood studios Warner Bros., Disney, and Sony Pictures announced they would “pause” the release of their films in Russia, including one of this year’s most anticipated movies, The Batman. Meanwhile, soccer federations FIFA and UEFA have expelled Russia from the 2022 World Cup and suspended the country’s clubs and national teams from all their competitions.

• T. rex may have been three species: Researchers studying fossils of T. rex found in lower layers of sediment have discovered that the fearsome predator  may have had two 🦖🦖 sibling tyrannosaurus species, that the scientists named Tyrannosaurus imperator (tyrant lizard emperor) and Tyrannosaurus regina (tyrant lizard queen).
