  • Is China building a new aircraft carrier?

  • The US-China Trade War Heats up

  • And PUBG gets shot in China.

  • That and more on this week's China news headlines.

  • This is China Uncensored.

  • I'm Chris Chappell.

  • This week's China news headlines:

  • Last year, at the request of the US government,

  • Canada arrested Meng Wanzhou,

  • the CFO of Huawei.

  • Huawei is the Chinese telecom company

  • the US has been warning everyone

  • is a national security threat.

  • Meng is accused of violating US sanctions on Iran.

  • And now, after months of waiting,

  • we finally have an update.

  • Meng's extradition trial is set to begin...

  • in January 2020.

  • And it could go for any length of time.

  • That's so unfair!

  • If only the Canadian legal system

  • were more like the Chinese legal system,

  • where a foreigner can be sentenced to death after a quick trial.

  • Satellite photos of a shipyard outside Shanghai

  • show China is building a mysteriously large ship.

  • This photo was published by the Washington-based think tank

  • the Center for Strategic and International Studies, or CSIS.

  • You know what?

  • I can look at satellite photos and comment about them too.

  • Doesn't mean I give myself some fancy pants name

  • like the Center for Strategic looking at stuff.

  • Here, let me give it a go.

  • Here's a photo from the Gobi Desert.

  • It's...a bunch of lines.

  • Which could be a secret...thing.

  • Fine.

  • Here's one from the middle of Kazakhstan.

  • I know what it is.

  • It's a giant pentagram!

  • I have no idea what to make of it, though.

  • Okay, this is harder than it looks.

  • According to CSIS,

  • parts of the ship's hull are over 130 feet wide.

  • Experts said while it was difficult to be sure,

  • the size and scale of the new vessel

  • strongly suggested China's much-anticipated new aircraft carrier,

  • referred to as Type 002.”

  • And Chinese state-run media has been hinting at it as well.

  • Okay, that's a bit more than a hint.

  • The Chinese Communist Party has been

  • rapidly trying to build up its navy.

  • According to US government reports,

  • in two years the People's Liberation Army Navy added 32 ships.

  • Hopefully China's new aircraft carrier

  • will be better than its last one.

  • I'm just kidding.

  • Hopefully the new one will be a piece of junk, too.

  • More on the latest developments in the US-China trade war.

  • This Reuters report suggests China may not have been

  • that serious about making reforms.

  • In each of the seven chapters of the draft trade deal,

  • China had deleted its commitments to change laws

  • to resolve core complaints that caused the United States

  • to launch a trade war:

  • Theft of U.S. intellectual property and trade secrets;

  • forced technology transfers;

  • competition policy;

  • access to financial services;

  • and currency manipulation.”

  • I know, we're all shocked.

  • Try to breathe.

  • Of course, the Reuters report cites anonymous sources,

  • so we don't know if that's all true.

  • But there have been signs that

  • maybe the trade deal isn't going as planned.

  • That's okay though,

  • because the Chinese economy is full of resilience,

  • according to state run media.

  • Yes, the Chinese economy is just chock full of resilience.

  • People are practically tripping over the resilience.

  • And that's good,

  • because as of Friday,

  • the Trump administration went ahead

  • and increased tariffs on

  • 200 billion dollars worth of Chinese goods.

  • It cameafter a pivotal round of trade talks

  • in Washington on Thursday

  • night failed to produce a [trade] agreement.”

  • So what will the Chinese Communist Party do now?

  • Well, obviously they're upset.

  • And they've vowed to take necessary countermeasures.

  • What exactly those countermeasures are,

  • is not clear.

  • Hopefully it's deep introspection,

  • culminating in the realization that it's morally wrong

  • to steal other people's intellectual property.

  • But I won't hold my breath.

  • There's one part of China that's getting

  • a lot of love from the US government:

  • Taiwan.

  • I mean, the Chinese Communist Party

  • considers Taiwan a part of China,

  • so it should be very happy about the new pro-Taiwan bill.

  • Okay, obviously the Chinese regime is freaking out.

  • In the past,

  • similar bills have brought the threat of war.

  • And I mean, you know, the Chinese Communist Party

  • could soon have an entire fleet of three aircraft carriers,

  • some of which might even work properly,

  • so...watch out.

  • But here's the real shocker to this story.

  • This bill supporting Taiwan was passed unanimously

  • in the US House of Representatives.

  • As in 414 to 0.

  • I didn't think that many Democrats and Republican

  • could ever agree on anything.

  • As I always like to say,

  • the Chinese Communist Party is really bringing America together.

  • But if this bill does spark war, be warned

  • the People's Liberation Army fears nothing.

  • That's according to this recent video

  • by state-run People's Daily.

  • Here they are, heroically...

  • jumping neck deep into a hole filled with muddy water.

  • Jumping into a hole filled with muddy water?

  • Well, at least they'll be ready for a career in politics.

  • Do you like the Chinese style model of mass surveillance?

  • Who doesn't?

  • Certainly not the city of Darwin, Australia.

  • They're bringing it home!

  • Inspired by the Chinese model,

  • they'll be setting up polesfitted with speakers,

  • cameras and Wi-Fi.”

  • This will allow the Darwin city council

  • to gain data on how many people walk on what footpaths

  • and where they use certain websites and apps in the city.”

  • It's what the residents there have always wanted:

  • A mass surveillance tool in the hands of the government.

  • And finally, are you a fan of the South Korean-made game

  • PlayerUnknown's Battlegrounds, a.k.a. PUBG?

  • I mean, pretending to kill people,

  • what could be more fun?

  • But if you like PUBG,

  • I hope you're not in China.

  • Because it's been pulled in favor of a more patriotic game.

  • That more patriotic game is called Elite Force for Peace,

  • or Game for Peace.

  • An expert speaking to Reuters said,

  • It's almost exactly the same.

  • The game play,

  • the background,

  • the graphic design and the characters,

  • they're almost the same.”

  • Almost.

  • The new game is apparently moresocialist

  • and focuses on China's air force fighting terrorists.

  • The important part is,

  • you're still running around killing people.

  • But in Elite Force for Peace,

  • when you shoot people,

  • they don't bleed,

  • and the dead get up and wave goodbye!”

  • Yes, that's what peace is all about.

  • And it just goes to show:

  • There's no foreign intellectual property

  • Chinese companies won't rip off

  • and make into a slightly stupider version.

  • This all happened because Tencent,

  • he Chinese mega company that licensed PUBG,

  • did not get a license renewal from Chinese censors

  • to continue to publish the game.

  • Tencent got angry and tried shooting the censors,

  • but the censors just got back up and waved.

  • So what do you think?

  • Leave your comments below.

  • And now it's time for me to answer

  • a question from one of you

  • a fan who support China Uncensored

  • with a dollar or more per episode,

  • by contributing through Patreon.

  • Jeppe Christensen asks,

  • Chris, when can we expect to see you

  • on the top 10 most wanted by the CCP

  • or do you aim for top 3?”

  • Oh my gosh,

  • that would be a dream come true.

  • Unless of course the CCP really tries to go after me.

  • Like, arrest me in Hong Kong level kind of thing.

  • Hmm, you know what?

  • The more I think about this,

  • the more creeped out I am.

  • I mean, if they're even using

  • Chinese inspired surveillance in parts of Australia,

  • I might start to have some problems.

  • I think I'll stick to flying under the radar.

  • Thanks for your question.

  • And thanks to everyone watching!

  • We could make this show without your support.

  • Whether it's Patreon or just watching

  • and sharing the show with your friends and family.

  • So thank you from me and everyone

  • on the China Uncensored team.

  • Once again I'm Chris Chappell,

  • see you next time.
