    nia-votes-on-whether-to-cut-ties-with-france-12089582


    Im so happy to hear that. New Caledonia voted in the referendum today to stay with France. New Caledonia is a huge island in the south pacific with 250.000 people. My family owns land in central New Caledonia, in Sarramea and all my family voted for remain. The moment France would leave, China would take controle.

    New Caledonia is unique in the world with amazing nature.

    Nope, we simply outbred the Kanaks.

    But that aside, China is absolutely hated and despised in New Caledonia. So there is little danger about that. Infact China was used as the main thing why its good to stay France.

    Russia and China have slapped down America's German sock puppets in the Security Council for raising a stink
    over "humanitarian aid" to Syria. The German liars were claiming that a single access point is too restrictive
    and claimed their hearts were bleeding for the poor Syrian people. Recall that these are the same NATzO
    clowns who supported and still support the terrorists in Syria responsible for the poverty and suffering of
    Syrians. As usual, the bloody hypocrite west is trying to whitewash its image as pure as the driven snow
    humanitarians when they are actually war criminals and gross violators of human rights around the world.

    If China really was despised in NC then I would think less than 47% would want France gone...

    Exactly... and nobody cares that the US politicians are boycotting the games either... banning politicians from the west would be a good way of making them more fun and successful.

    Western politicians tend to go on about problems they can't solve... better off without them.

    I wonder if there is time for China to modify the opening and closing ceremonies of the games to highlight the plight of the indigenous communities in the US and Australia that have been so badly abused and treated these last few hundred years and how the world need to send a message to those rich arrogant countries that they need to give more attention to domestic problems instead of interfering in other countries affairs...

    Cambodian PM Hun Sen orders armed forces not to use US made military equipment as spat between two countries escalates

    Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen on Friday ordered armed forces across the country to collect all U.S. made military weapons and materials to keep in caches or to have them burned down.

    The move came after the United States on Wednesday imposed an arms embargo on Cambodia, banning the export of its military equipment to the southeast Asian nation.

    "I'd like to order all military units to immediately check the military weapons and materials that Cambodia is currently using and to collect all the U.S. military weapons and materials, if found, to keep in caches or to have them destroyed based on practical situation," he wrote on his official Facebook page.

    Hun Sen said that he has made a right decision since 1994 not to purchase the US military weapons and materials.

    "This is a warning message to the Cambodian government in the next generations that if it wants independence in the defense sector, please do not use the US made weapons," he said.

    The US government on Wednesday night (Dec 8 ) imposed an arms embargo on Cambodia, citing concerns about human rights and corruption in the southeast Asian nation as well as China's activities there, reported international medias.

    The actions taken by the State and Commerce departments will "restrict" access to "less-sensitive military items" and "defense articles and defense services" by Cambodia's military and intelligence agencies, according to a statement.

    "The United States remains fully committed to Cambodia's independence and the sovereignty of its people," Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo said.

    "We urge the Cambodian government to make meaningful progress in addressing corruption and human rights abuses, and to work to reduce the influence of the (People's Republic of China) military in Cambodia, which threatens regional and global security."

    In November, Washington sanctioned two Cambodian officials over a US-funded naval base that is increasingly being renovated for use by China, alleging corruption in the project.

    Cambodia should demand the closure of the US run concentration and execution camps in Guantanimo bay and various rendition sites around Eastern Europe and the Middle East, and that they free political prisoners like Assange and Snowden and Manning and the various whistleblowers in the CIA and NSA and other government organisations in the US government whose only crime is releasing information and evidence of war crimes and crimes against humanity by the US and other western governments.

    The democracy of Cambodia remains fully committed to supporting the USAs striving for democracy and hopes they one day manage to achieve that goal. Still a very long way to go however.

    Serial human rights abuser and corrupt toilet America accusing others of being what it truly is. But slowly reality is catching up

    US support for the Pol Pot communist regime is probably one of the best examples of how double standards apply in America. The US as a staunch anti-communist advocate (remember the McCarthy era) chose to support and fund Pol Pot's regime against Vietnam and turned a complete blind eye to the massacre that took place in Cambodia, where over a third of the male, and a quarter of the female population was murdered. It was also a shameful period in China's history.

    Note that when the egyptian military took back sovereignty of their nation the usual suspect NGOs started talking about "egyptian human rights abuses". This is a classic tactic and it is insidious. I wish my country would get rid of it's byzantine corruption and forked tongue.

    Sadly the boy who cried wolf has a lot to answer for... the irony is that all the things they claim to hold dear that are important components of a free and fair democracy they have destroyed and corrupted in their efforts to control.

    When trying to destroy a country the first thing they do is get as much of the free press on their side by buying it or infiltrating it with the CIA.

    The west does not have a free press, it is the militant arm of the propaganda wing of the government.

    Anyone in power is either turned or killed so they can try to turn their replacement... the number of peace loving human rights advocates they have murdered in third world countries is disgusting... but call them communists if they want fair wages or protection for workers and then the secret police can murder them outright... they will jump in to bed with anyone who will allow them to control them... we know the most dangerous and murderous Muslim fanatics are not the Iranian Shia types that the west demonises, but the Sunni types whose regimes the west supports in Saudi Arabia... ironically not all sunni regimes were cancerous... but the head chopping fanatics like ISIS were... allies of the US till interests changed.... but then they are used to teaming up with nutters to achieve their own goals... all the hate for Stalin in the west and yet they were happy to plot and plan the future shape of Europe together with him at Yalta... I find it amusing that eastern europe blamed the russians and stalin for their plight but the western powers happily signed off on who got what....

    Anyway it is good to see Cambodia showing some spine and standing up to the US... amusing they have more spine than all of Europe combined... but they are used to a level of comfort and clearly don't see themselves retaining their colonial powers and "income" without US say so.

    Russia has vetoed a resolution at the UN which attempted to link action on climate change to international security.
    This was a transparent attempt to weaponize global warming as a political tool. If Ireland and Niger and their
    NATzO owners care so much about global warming, then they should put their money where their mouth is and
    reduce CO2 emissions. Germany is an example, it should have kept its nuclear power plants operational instead
    of burning more coal for electricity.

    What is the opinion about Lithuania standing up to China? The President doesn't want Chinese smartphones sold in his country because of possible censorship.
