After the fallout from U.S. troops’ withdrawal from Afghanistan the UK parliament held President Biden in contempt. Now, Biden is facing disapproval from across the pond, and within his own American people. The British Parliament has censured Biden in contempt over Afghanistan, both Tory and Labour are united against him. 

Tom Tugenhat, Tonbridge and Malling MP blasted Biden for claiming that the “Afghan forces are not willing to fight for themselves.” He is a veteran himself, who saw many Afghan soldiers die for their cause.

“To see their commander in chief call into question the courage of men that I fought with, to claim that they ran, is shameful,” Tugenhat said on the parliament floor Wednesday. “Those who have never fought for the colors they fly should be careful about criticizing those who have.” According to Tugenhat, armies don’t win wars, nations do.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson echoed that sentiment Friday, tweeting his appreciation for the troops. “We owe the brave people who worked side-by-side with us in Afghanistan a debt of gratitude,” Johnson wrote. Now the country is working to evacuate people.

Meanwhile, as all this was going on, despite their shared missions, Biden screened calls from Minister Johnson for 36 hours. According to a report from the Daily Telegraph, Biden didn’t contact Johnson until 5 PM EST Tuesday. For Johnson, it was 10 PM his time. So Biden addressed the nation before he called the prime minister back.

Much of the world is getting on with life and attempting to recover any of the horrendous damage caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic. However, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) has just imposed even more Covid-19 lockdowns sparking unrest.

Chinese citizens are banning together to protest yet another round of strict covid protocols and lockdowns suffocating their freedom.

In Shanghai, citizens chanted against President Xi Jinping’s rule, according to CNN. Chants “Xi Jinping, step down” and “Communist party, step down” were chanted. Some protesters held up blank sheets of paper to symbolize resistance against the Chinese government.

One social media user explained the black sheets of paper: “We don’t need to write anything on it. It is a symbol of the revolution of the people.”

An apartment fire in Urumqi, the capital of the far western region of Xinjiang, killed ten people and injured nine last week. The incident triggered “the most recent wave of unrest” because “it was believed that the mobility restrictions in the area either trapped the residents or slowed the dispatch of emergency services” reports National Review.

Various universities including in Shanghai, Beijing, and Nanjing, saw huge crowds of students who honored the victims and denounced China’s zero-Covid-19 policy and strict control measures.
