But it's not the public who's causing the ruckus. I wonder if the Australian government will give into China's demands or just quietly try to find other markets?

Hi Kyokai. Long time no see. Glad to see you are in the land of the healthy, not so easy to be these days.

No it's not the public that's causing the hassle. I mean to say that it would look weak for Australia to concede on any of the demands and weak on China's part if they retracted any demand. Best option for both of them is to let it blow over, that way neither of them concede and they both look strong. Then they can quietly resume trade or whatever. The only other option is escalation from here.

Unfortunately "finding other markets" is easier said than done. Most markets just aren't interested in as much of our coal as China does. One of our biggest exports is education believe it or not (foreigners paying to study at Australian universities). Although we have a lot of international students from around the world, Chinese students make up a significant portion and to replace them should China boycott Australia's universities (which they have threatened to do in the past) would be almost impossible. Trust me, Australia's been scrambling to 'find other buyers' for a while now haha

Ah yes, the perils of globalization and chest thumping. I can understand that it would be hard to find a market for coal since many countries are trying to phase it out, including the U. S., Trump's blather notwithstanding. I think the U. S. is also in the ed business with the unis, public and private, complaining bitterly because corona and its associated quarantines are cutting into the foreign student revenue stream.

Welcome to United Nations, Union Of Northern Federative Republics. Glad you dropped in. Hope you enjoy your stay in our fair region. Please help yourself to drinks and cookies, masks and sanitizing gel, which you'll find in the hospitality suite. \_/ (::)(::)

Even if I wanted to go back over there, I think my place in their roleplay has been taken, and the constraints of life would prevent me from re-establishing myself. Also, current events are crazy, aren't they? This year has been a nightmare- I can't wait for the widespread distribution of the vaccine.

I suppose it's all the same, I've been gone for such a long amount of time that I honestly can't remember where I left off. How are you, Blab?

It has been crazy, hasn't it? I'm in the land of the healthy, so, although I'm a bit bored, I count myself as very lucky. Been trying to get the WA classification, Capitalizt and so far, no success, so if anyone has any tips I'm all ears.

Welcome to United Nations, New istenia. Glad you stopped by. Hope you enjoy your stay in our fair region. Please help yourself to drinks and cookies, masks and sanitizing gel, which you'll find in the hospitality suite. \_/ (::)(::)

thanks for the hospitality

Maybe some of you might find this interesting...

A few days ago the Australian Department of Defence released a report which was the result of four-years worth of investigation into alleged war crimes in Afghanistan. It found that 39 non-combatants had been killed by a number of Australian special forces across the time that we were in Afghanistan.

Upon the release of the report, Russia and China criticised us (as they have every right to do). A Chinese spokesman for their foreign ministry tweeted a heavily doctored image which hasn't gone down well to say the least. Take a look: https://www.theguardian.com/australia-news/2020/nov/30/australia-china-pm-scott-morrison-demands-apology-fake-chinese-tweet-adf-soldier
