China's WeChat social media platform blocked a message by Australia Prime Minister Scott Morrison amid a dispute between Canberra and Beijing over the doctored tweeted image of an Australian soldier. China rebuffed Morrison's calls for an apology after its foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian posted the picture of an Australian soldier holding a bloodied knife to the throat of an Afghan child on Monday. The United States called China's use of the digitally manipulated image a "new low" in disinformation. Morrison took to WeChat on Tuesday to criticize the "false image", while offering praise to Australia's Chinese community. China's embassy has said the "rage and roar" from Australian politicians and media over the soldier image was an overreaction.

President-elect Joe Biden is facing escalating pressure from competing factions within his own party as he finalizes his choice for secretary of defense. Nearly 100 House Democrats belong to the Progressive Caucus, which may wield significant influence over Biden's policy agenda as Democrats cling to their narrowest House majority in a century. But soon after Biden's victory, her stock seemed to slip as others, including Austin and Johnson, came into consideration. Biden, then vice president, greets US Air Force personnel at an airbase in Romania, May 20, 2014. "If he chooses the path of deal-making with Mitch McConnell, those divides within the Democratic Party will become much more apparent."

The US Marine Corps' first F-35C squadron has achieved initial operational capability, meaning it is ready to deploy. The first Marine Corps F-35 squadron established to fight from Navy aircraft carriers is officially ready to deploy. The "Black Knights" are the first Marine Corps F-35C squadron. With the addition of the F-35C to the Marine Corps' arsenal, the service will also be able to fight from Navy aircraft carriers. VMFA-314, which is based out of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in California, received the Marine Corps' first F-35Cs in January.

The US Air Force's F-22, widely seen as the world's most capable air superiority fighter, was nearly joined by a sister platform modified specifically for the Navy. Had the YF-23 won out, it would have been the defacto choice for a Navy fighter variant for consideration. In theory, this agreement would allow the Air Force to leverage Navy R&D for their new bomber, while the Navy leveraged the Air Force's for their new fighter.

KABUL (Reuters) - Afghan government and Taliban representatives said on Wednesday they had reached a preliminary deal to press on with peace talks, their first written agreement in 19 years of war welcomed by the United Nations and Washington. The agreement lays out the way forward for further discussion and is considered a breakthrough because it will allow negotiators to move on to more substantive issues, including talks on a ceasefire. In Afghanistan, the two sides are still at war, with Taliban attacks on government forces continuing unabated.

The agreement comes after months of talks in Doha, the capital of Qatar, encouraged by the United States, despite the ongoing violence. A ceasefire remains the most urgent demand of international capitals and Kabul, even after the Taliban refused one during the preliminary stages of talks. “(The agreement) is a step forward towards beginning the negotiations on the main issues, including a comprehensive ceasefire as the key demand of the Afghan people,” Afghan President Ashraf Ghani’s spokesman, Sediq Sediqqi, said on Twitter, quoting the Afghan leader.

The number of social media followers of the artist, who calls himself Wuheqilin, has since risen to 1 million, with some hailing the image as a new chapter in Chinese propaganda artwork. “Wuheqilin” in Chinese translates to “a qilin amid the masses,” referring to the one-horned mythical beast. Wuheqilin also proclaims himself as a “wolf warrior” artist, after two popular Chinese movies in which the action hero prevails over evil U.S. mercenaries. Wuheqilin has long supported Chinese propaganda artwork, but it was only last summer when he infused political themes into his images as Hong Kong was rocked by street protests, according to interviews with Chinese media. THRILLEDOn social media, Wuheqilin said he was thrilled foreign ministry spokesman Zhao Lijian tweeted his work.

SYDNEY (Reuters) - The United States has called China’s use of a digitally manipulated image of an Australian soldier a “new low”, weighing in on the dispute between Canberra and Beijing over the tweet. State Department deputy spokesman Cale Brown said the fabricated image of the soldier was “a new low, even for the Chinese Communist Party”. China on Friday imposed dumping tariffs of up to 200% on Australian wine imports, effectively shutting off the largest export market for the Australian wine industry, amid a worsening diplomatic dispute that has seen a serious of trade reprisals imposed by China. A group of parliamentarians from 19 countries that has lobbied against China’s actions in Hong Kong and Xinjiang campaigned on social media for the public to drink Australian wine. Taiwan’s foreign ministry said on Twitter it would serve Australian wine.

President-elect Joe Biden has pledged to "end forever wars," but human rights groups are concerned by a lack of specifics behind this vow. Biden has been fairly silent on topics like drone strikes and air strikes, and hasn't outlined how he'd work to prevent civilian casualties. American service members are also scattered across Africa and involved in counterterrorism operations, including drone strikes, throughout the continent. "One of Biden's first steps should be to bar the CIA from carrying out drone strikes and other targeted killings. "We saw a huge increase in air strikes during the Trump administration, and a corresponding huge increase in civilians killed and injured from those air strikes," Eviatar said, noting that Amnesty documented 1,600 civilians killed from a four-month campaign in Syria alone.

Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said Wednesday that the US has achieved a "modicum of success" after nearly two decades "of consistent effort" in Afghanistan.

US observers welcomed Sullivan's message as a departure from Trump's attitude toward allies but said Biden needs to follow-through on it after taking office. Sullivan's message avoided mentioning China, which has steadily escalated a confrontation with Australia since earlier this year. After Canberra called for an independent investigation into the origins of the coronavirus, Beijing called Australia "a giant kangaroo that serves as a dog to the US." "There are undoubtedly tensions that exist between China and Australia, but this is not how you deal with them."

REUTERS/Carlos Garcia RawlinsAustralia’s Prime Minister Scott Morrison on Monday called the tweet posted by China’s foreign ministry spokesman, Zhao Lijian, “truly repugnant”, and called for an apology. On Tuesday the tweet was pinned to the top of Zhao’s social media account, and China’s Global Times newspaper, known for nationalistic views, interviewed the Chinese artist who created the image. Australia was seeking to “stoke domestic nationalism”, and “deflect public attention from the horrible atrocities by certain Australian soldiers”, it said. Australia has said there looks to be a pattern of Chinese trade sanctions against Australian products this year, linked to Beijing’s diplomatic grievances over Australia’s national security, human rights and foreign policy decisions.

He said this year donors gave a record $17 billion to fund humanitarian operations and data showed that aid reached 70% of the people targeted.

The climate-controlled chambers at Shenzhen's international airport will soon be filled with Chinese-made coronavirus vaccines. In the coming months, China will be sending hundreds of millions of doses of coronavirus vaccines to countries that have conducted last-stage trials for its leading candidates. The project, known as COVAX, is designed to discourage governments from hoarding coronavirus vaccines and instead focus on vaccinating high-risk groups in every country. Beijing has also offered a $1 billion loan to Latin America and the Caribbean for access to its coronavirus vaccines. Cainiao is also in partnership with Ethiopian Airlines, which will be sending the Chinese vaccines to the Middle East and then Africa.

In a press conference on Monday, Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying bluntly rejected Australian PM Morrison's call for an apology.
