China’s Secret Military Base Near Afghanistan | China Uncensored

Chinese troops knock on Afghanistan’s doorstep China wants to build a power station in space And, why are Chinese netizens calling this
woman ugly? That and more on this week’s China news
headlines. This is China Uncensored. I’m Chris Chappell. Subscribe to our YouTube channel for the latest China news, and click the notification bell so you get an alert each time we publish a
new episode. This week’s China news headlines. “Remember, you never saw us here.” That’s what this Chinese soldier told a Washington Post reporter in Tajikistan. I’m guessing that soldier has never met
a reporter before. The soldier was shopping in a small bazaar in southeastern Tajikistan, near the borders with China and Afghanistan. It’s about 85 miles from a secret Chinese
military outpost. I mean, not so secret that you can’t see
it from satellite photos. Or in this photo taken by the Washington Post
reporter. Or from the reports of nearby villagers who
say they’ve seen dozens, possibly hundreds, of Chinese troops over the past three years. But other than that, nobody knows about China’s secret military base in Tajikistan! Unless you watch China Uncensored. Or read the Washington Post. China has invested heavily in Tajikistan as part of the Belt and Road Initiative. That’s Chinese leader Xi Jinping’s trillion
dollar global infrastructure investment plan. Basically, the Chinese regime gives huge loans to poor countries. The poor countries then use those loans to
pay Chinese state-run companies to come build
stuff for them— like roads and shipping ports. And if they can’t pay the loans off, Chinese officials might write off the debt in exchange for some of the country’s resources and/or infrastructure. Hmm. China has built coal plants, hospitals, schools, roads, railways, and tunnels in Tajikistan. In fact, “China, through a single state
bank, held more than half of Tajikistan’s external
debt as of 2016, up from none in 2006.” The base in Tajikistan joins a variety of
other Chinese ports and military installations throughout the region. Wow, India looks surrounded. According to the Washington Post, the Chinese soldiers in Tajikistan might be technically paramilitary troops. The Washington Post also says that US officials are aware of the Chinese base, but aren’t particularly concerned. In fact they might feel it provides greater security to the region. But either way, this is a big deal. China is putting troops on the border of Afghanistan right at a time when the United States is considering withdrawing troops from the
region. But I say, let ’em! The Brits had their turn. The Soviets had theirs. We Americans had ours. It’s time… to let China fail in Afghanistan,
too. It looks like China has added a new locale to the Belt and Road Initiative: space! China is now looking at building a solar power station in orbit. Of course when I say China, I mean the Chinese military, since that’s who runs China’s space program. Construction of an experimental base has already
begun. And according to China’s state-backed Science and Technology Daily, “Chinese scientists plan to build and launch small power stations into the stratosphere between 2021 and 2025.” Those will then be upgraded into larger, more powerful stations between 2030 and 2050. Presumably by which point we’ll finally
get those flying cars we were promised. Now a solar power station in space makes a
lot of sense. The China Academy of Space Technology claims
that, by orbiting above most of the atmosphere, the solar array will be 6 times as efficient. I assume that’s…once they figure out a
way to beam all that power back down to Earth. Plus, then China can claim that the stratosphere has been Chinese territory since ancient times. This is Ren Zhengfei, the founder of Chinese telecom maker Huawei. He recently gave an interview with the BBC. And he’s not happy with the US. “There’s no way the US can crush us.” That was his response to the global reaction
against Huawei because of national security concerns. Following the US’s lead, a lot of countries are banning Huawei from
government contracts and from building national 5G networks. Many intelligence agencies are concerned that Huawei’s phones and other telecommunications
equipment could be used to spy on people. But in response to that, the Huawei founder
said, “The Chinese government has already clearly
said that it won’t install any backdoors. And we won’t install backdoors either.” Well the word of a Chinese Communist Party
member is good enough for me. Incidentally, he also did confirm that Huawei has a Communist Party committee, but you shouldn’t worry because all companies in China have one. I don’t know why the Communist Party infiltrating every company should make me *less* worried. But anyway, you may recall that the US had asked Canada to arrest his daughter, current Huawei CFO Meng Wanzhou. She’s accused of violating US sanctions
on Iran. But daddy says that’s just nonsense. “I object to what the US has done. This kind of politically motivated act is
not acceptable.” Yes, it was politically motivated. And definitely not because Meng was charged
with 13 specific counts from the State of New York, including bank fraud, money laundering, and conspiracy to obstruct justice. No, no! It’s politically motivated! That mean old Uncle Sam is jealous of a Chinese company’s success, and is trying to keep it down. But you know who really gets it? Former New Zealand Prime Minister Jenny Shipley. She told Chinese state-run media we need to listen to China. She praised China’s great progress. And that Belt and Road Initiative? That’s “one of the greatest ideas we’ve
ever heard globally”. Yeah, it’s a way better idea than the rest of the dumb ideas of the 21st century, like smart phones. Or blockchain. Or Netflix. Needless to say, the former PM’s article caused a bit of backlash in New Zealand. New Zealand is currently reeling under the
revelation of a widespread campaign of influence waged by the Chinese Communist Party. That includes a well placed parliament member who used to train Chinese spies, and a well-known New Zealand scholar whose home was broken into by likely Chinese
agents. You can see why some folks might be a bit upset by what Jenny Shipley wrote for the People’s Daily. But, in her defense, she said the article— which has her by-line— well, she never actually wrote it. Apparently, People’s Daily just took a previous interview with her and turned it into an opinion piece. So she didn’t write it, but she did say
those things. Sounds like Shipley and the People’s Daily were made for each other. Speaking of listening to China, did you know who the world’s biggest victim
of hacking is, according to Chinese authorities? It’s China. Which is why China is hitting back against
Australia for claiming China was behind a recent cyber
attack on Australian political parties. It’s just like Huawei. A victim of a western powers. What’s that Shelley? Oh, Australia’s cybersecurity chief actually
said they weren’t sure which country was behind
it? Ahh, I see. Australia merely said, “Some unknown country hacked us,” and China’s response was, “Well we didn’t do it! How dare you accuse us?! We get hacked all the time. You’re crazy.” Well, that sounds like a very normal and completely not guilty reaction. Speaking of aboveboard Chinese technology, a Chinese tech company called SenseNets apparently left sensitive personal information
of its clients in an an open database that could be accessed
by anyone. Now normally, that’s an unbelievably stupid lapse in data
security. But in this case, it turned out to be partly a good thing. Why? Well, the people in SenseNets’ database were actually the Uighur people of Xinjiang. And the leak showed that the Communist Party has been keeping very close tabs on them. The records tracked everything from a person’s
ID number, birthday, address, ethnicity, employer… as well as updated GPS coordinates that could tell if, for instance, this particular person was visiting a mosque. As one online security expert put it, “Who in their right mind runs a database which is completely open and gives any visitors full administrative
rights so then those database records can be manipulated by anyone with an internet connection?” No wonder China is the world’s biggest victim
of hacking. Also, a victim of Neptune, god of the Sea. Because “a storm in the English Channel damaged S-400 anti-aircraft missiles that Russia was shipping to China” Which makes me wonder, what was a Russian ship doing in the English
Channel? Anyway, the cargo contained these kind of S-400 Russian anti-aircraft
missiles. They’re a Chinese favorite. In fact, China is under US sanctions for buying weapons just like this from Russia. But I wouldn’t want you to worry that the accident means China won’t have enough anti-aircraft missiles. Two other Russian shipments did make it through. And Russia has said it will replace the damaged
weapons by 2020. That’s the kind of customer service Russia
has become known for. And finally, this is 25-year-old Jing Wen, a Chinese model who’s worked for Chanel
and Prada. And this is a recent ad by Zara featuring
her. She is a disgusting insult to China. That’s apparently what Netizens in China
are calling her. Like, literally, they’re using the hashtag
“insult to China.” You see in Asia, and particularly China, they really like white skin. I’m not being racist! This is a real thing. It’s not because they want to look like
caucasians. It’s because historically whiter skin meant you weren’t a peasant working out in the
sun all day. But Zara’s decision to showcase Jing Wen’s
freckles seems to have really riled up a lot of people. Or at least a very vocal minority. One person wrote that showing Jing’s Wen’s
freckles was imposing Western beauty standards on Asian
women, and “For those women to be called the most
beautiful in Asia feels like discrimination to the rest of us.” Now while this might seem totally bonkers
to you, it gets weirder. State-run media actually wrote a reasonable
response, saying people who were complaining were being way too sensitive. “Their [complaints] show over-sensitivity and a lack of cultural confidence. It shows they are so afraid of being hurt that they tend to take a defense gesture against any move they do not understand.” Okay hold on, that’s not just reasonable for Chinese state-run
media. That’s the most reasonable thing I’ve
ever heard said in any media in the last couple years. If only they felt the same way when a Chinese dissident speaks out. And before you go, it’s time when I answer a question from a fan of the show who supports China Uncensored on the crowd funding website Patreon. BlueFox asks, “Chris, with both China and Russia claiming they have these weapons like those space lasers. Do you think that the US is taking there claims seriously or not?” In case you don’t know, Blue Fox is referring to this recent Pentagon
report. The report says “China and Russia, in particular, are developing a variety of means to exploit perceived US reliance on space-based systems and challenge the US position in space.” So it’s more than just lasers. Is the US taking this seriously? I’d say it is. It seems the general consensus is that the US has fallen behind China and Russia in terms of space defense. This is something defense and security agencies have been saying for a while now. And it’s one of the main reasons President
Trump wants to create a Space Force. Because whether we like it or not, space warfare is already here. And yet, still no flying cars! Thanks for your question, Blue Fox. So why am I answering questions on the show? It’s because a lot of advertisers don’t dare to work with a show that criticizes the Chinese Communist Party. So we rely on support from viewers like you on the crowdfunding website Patreon. Answering your questions on the show is one of my ways of saying thank you. So head over to to find out how you can keep China, uncensored. Thanks for watching. Once again I’m your host Chris Chappell. See you next time.

  33. You dont "INSTALL" a backdoor. Its an administrative password thats designed with the firmware to allow the manufacturer to refurbish the hardware if the customer returns it broken and complains of a defective product. So saying "you wont install" any backdoors. Insults American intelligence. Because you HAVE TO put in a backdoor to make just about anything. Only here in America, for PCs, you can hand pick components and build your own PC and root opensourced google mobile software known as Android (if you use Apple, China knows when you poo). Which negates a systems ability to be accessed from a backdoor. Its why you dont see HP making just motherboards. Data mining on you Backdoors are a designers access to the device period. Saying they wont put one in is a LIE.

  34. Here's the WaPo article in case anyone's wondering.

  35. Summer guy finds interesting is why China is carrying out genocide and not being challenged by the world's governments perhaps it's because many of the key politicians are receiving large sums of money and the media owned by these people who receiving the the large amounts of money ask him about the iPhone factory with people jumping to their deaths because conditions are so bad add ask him about the re-education camps where the people who work there and Dawn to Dusk only get a bowl full of cabbage soup to eat and the brutality of the state to the people or I know this will never get on to the mainstream Media or or will go past the censorship of YouTube because after all a big percentage of their people leaving the new world order and don't believe in the freedom of speech Liberty or democracy the most ungodly has people on the planet and now undermining the freedom of speech liberty and democracy I hate the people they are meant to serve
