    ULAANBAATAR (Reuters) - Tens of thousands of Mongolians took to the streets on Thursday to protest against corruption in the top echelons of politics, braving temperatures that dropped below minus 20 degrees Celsius in the capital, Ulaanbaatar.

    Default China’s People’s Armed Police: reorganised and refocused

    An IISS Military Balance blog article that opens with:
    Now with a more centralised command structure and enhanced use of new technology like uninhabited air vehicles, China’s People’s Armed Police is being transformed into a more reliable and effective force focused on three core missions – internal security, maritime security and supporting the People’s Liberation Army in times of war....(soon after)...Thirty years after the events of Tiananmen, the internal security mission remains of central importance to the Chinese government. However, it is the People’s Armed Police (PAP) and not the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) that now has primary responsibility for this task, and it is a force – like the PLA – undergoing significant change.

    Default China's Spin Machine

    In China's never ending crusade to control the narrative, they are portraying the protests in Hong Kong against the communist party and a perceived violation of the one-country, two-system agreement, as protests against America, or demonstrations in support of China. Amazing that this type of propaganda survives in the 21st Century, but it does due to China's Orwellian social controls.
