    //news.cgtn.com/news/2021-03-07/Xi-joins-deliberation-of-Qinghai-delegation-at-legislative-session-Yr8zuFRR5e/index.html
    Chinese President Xi Jinping on Sunday called for efforts to advance high-quality development and improve people’s well-being throughout the country during the ongoing legislative session.

    President Xi made the remarks when taking part in a group deliberation with lawmakers from northwest China’s Qinghai Province at the fourth session of the 13th National People’s Congress, China’s top legislature.

    High-quality development is the theme of China’s economic and social development in the 14th Five-Year Plan period (2021-2025) and beyond, he said. Different regions should find paths of high-quality development suited to their conditions and take concrete actions to improve people’s livelihood, he added.

    Xi said Qinghai should prioritize ecological protection, promote high-quality development and create high-quality life for the people, calling on the province to make new achievements in protecting the ecology in the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau and advancing sustainable development.

    Purging Inconvenient Facts in Coverage of Biden’s ‘First’ Air Attacks
    GREGORY SHUPAK

    To praise Biden’s killings, corporate media pretended the US was fighting back against a bully. Max Boot of the Washington Post (2/26/21),
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2021/02/26/biden-iran-saudi-arabia-syria/
    Opinion: Biden actually has a strategy for the Middle East, not just a Twitter account
    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported that at least 17 pro-Iran fighters had been killed.

    http://www.arabnews.com/node/1816066/middle-east
    US bombs facilities in Syria used by Iran-backed militia; monitor counts 17 killed

    SOHR says all casualties were fighters of the Popular Mobilization Forces
    The strikes were in retaliation for a rocket attack in Iraq earlier this month, says US defense department
    WASHINGTON/BEIRUT: The United States launched airstrikes in Syria on Thursday, targeting facilities near the Iraqi border used by Iranian-backed militia groups.

    US defense officials announced the strikes without providing details and with no mention of casualties, saying only that they were retaliation for a rocket attack in Iraq earlier this month that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a US service member and other coalition troops.

    The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) said Friday that at least 17 pro-Iran fighters were killed in the US strikes in Syria at the Iraq border overnight.

    “The strikes destroyed three lorries carrying munitions… There were many casualties. Preliminary indications are that at least 17 fighters were killed, all members of Popular Mobilization Forces,” the director of the SOHR, Rami Abdul Rahman, told AFP, referencing the powerful coalition of pro-Iran Iraqi paramilitaries.

    The airstrike was the first military action undertaken by the Biden administration, which in its first weeks has emphasized its intent to put more focus on the challenges posed by China, even as Mideast threats persist.

    Biden’s decision to attack in Syria did not appear to signal an intention to widen US military involvement in the region but rather to demonstrate a will to defend US troops in Iraq.

    “I’m confident in the target that we went after, we know what we hit,” Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin told reporters flying with him from California to Washington.

    Speaking shortly after the airstrikes, he added, “We’re confident that that target was being used by the same Shia militants that conducted the strikes,” referring to a Feb. 15 rocket attack in northern Iraq that killed one civilian contractor and wounded a US service member and other coalition personnel.

    Austin said he recommended the action to Biden.

    “We said a number of times that we will respond on our timeline,” Austin said. “We wanted to be sure of the connectivity and we wanted to be sure that we had the right targets.”

    Earlier, Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the US action was a “proportionate military response” taken together with diplomatic measures, including consultation with coalition partners.

    “The operation sends an unambiguous message: President Biden will act to protect American and coalition personnel,” Kirby said. “At the same time, we have acted in a deliberate manner that aims to deescalate the overall situation in eastern Syria and Iraq.”
    Kirby said the US airstrikes “destroyed multiple facilities at a border control point used by a number of Iranian- backed militant groups,” including Kataib Hezbollah and Kataib Sayyid Al-Shuhada. The US has blamed Kataib Hezbollah for numerous attacks targeting US personnel and interests in Iraq in the past.

    Further details were not immediately available.

    Mary Ellen O’Connell, a professor at Notre Dame Law School, criticized the US attack as a violation of international law.

    “The United Nations Charter makes absolutely clear that the use of military force on the territory of a foreign sovereign state is lawful only in response to an armed attack on the defending state for which the target state is responsible,” she said. “None of those elements is met in the Syria strike.”

    FBI Counterterrorism Official: No Firearms Recovered During Jan. 6 Capitol Breach
    BY JACK PHILLIPS March 3, 2021

    When asked by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) about whether firearms were recovered or if any suspect was charged with firearms offenses, FBI counterterrorism chief Jill Sanborn responded: “To my knowledge, none.”

    But in the hearing, Sanborn also said that before the Jan. 6 incident, “We knew they would be armed, we had intelligence that they would be coming to DC, but we did not have intelligence that they would be breaching the Capitol.”

    Johnson previously told news outlets that the term “armed insurrection” used by some Democratic officials, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), and mainstream news outlets is incorrect as no guns were recovered. The only shooting involved an officer-involved shooting that left one protester, Ashli Babbitt, dead.
    “I would say, if it’s properly termed an ‘armed insurrection,’ it was a pretty ragtag one,” Johnson said in an interview with the New York Times last week. “This didn’t seem like an armed insurrection to me. When you hear the word ‘armed,’ don’t you think of firearms? Here’s the questions I would have liked to ask: How many firearms were confiscated? How many shots were fired?” he also said.

    Johnson added: “If that was a planned armed insurrection, you really have a bunch of idiots.”

    The senator’s comments drew a rebuke from media pundits and congressional Democrats, who attempted to characterize him as someone who is sympathetic to the rioters.

    The U.S. Justice Department has charged more than 300 people with taking part in the Capitol breach. Among those arrested were members of right-wing groups such as the Oath Keepers, Three Percenters, and Proud Boys. The Oath Keepers and Three Percenters are armed militia groups.

    A coalition airbase in an illegally occupied country is surely a ‘legitimate’ target.
    US is to blame for these attacks, since the US insists on staying in Iraq even though Iraqis told them to pack up and leave. From that point on, everything that happens to US forces is their responsibility. US regime is willingly putting its own forces in harm’s way by refusing to leave.

    Last week, President Biden released a statement on the seventh anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea and said the US would “never” accept Russian sovereignty over the peninsula. He said the US “will stand with Ukraine against Russia’s aggressive acts.”

    Like the war in the Donbas, the annexation of Crimea was also sparked by the US-backed coup in Kyiv. The largely ethnic Russian populations of Crimea and Donbas rejected the nationalist post-coup government in Kyiv, and the majority of Crimeans favored joining Russia.

    Incoming Bombing, is not fun for either side.

    Inside the attack that almost sent the U.S. to war with Iran
    David Martin speaks with troops who were there as an Iranian ballistic missile attack rained down on Al Asad Airbase in Iraq, part of six days that saw the U.S. and Iran go to the brink of war.

    Alan Johnson: Knocked the wind out of me followed by the most putrid tasting ammonia tasting dust that swept through the bunker coated your teeth.

    We’re going to burn to death.

    Like a freight train going by you.

    Johnson wasn’t the only one frantically searching for cover.
    We get to the bunker and realize there’s roughly 40 people trying to stuff themselves into this bunker that’s made for about ten folks.
    Luck. The only thing I can actually come up with is that hand of God protected us. Because, really, nobody should have lived through this.
    Frank McKenzie: I’ve never been on one like this where real missiles being fired at our forces and where I thought the risks were so high.
    The Iranian attack on Al Asad was in retaliation for a stunning U.S. operation President Trump ordered six nights earlier – a drone strike which killed Iran’s most powerful general, Quasem Soleimani.
    The attack was just hours away when Major Alan Johnson got the word Iran’s most powerful weapons were aiming for Al Asad.

    Alan Johnson: My intelligence officer pulled me aside and basically said, “Sir, I’ve got some bad news for you.” “What’s up?” (LAUGH) “We have information that Iran is fueling 27 medium-range ballistic missiles and their intention is to level this base and we may not survive.”
    David Martin: Did the base have any defense against ballistic missiles?

    Tim Garland: No sir. It was such an unprecedented threat. I don’t think it was ever calculated, so the capability to prevent a ballistic missile attack it– it wasn’t there.

    David Martin: Did you have a plan for what to do?

    Tim Garland: We came up with a plan.

    Staci Coleman: The only real defense against a ballistic missile attack is to get out of harm’s way.
    Frank McKenzie: I think they expected to destroy a number of U.S. aircraft and to kill a number of U.S. service members.
    John Haines: I just threw the phone down and ran to my vehicle. And once that impact happened the back pressure blew our doors closed and then you just see cloud of dirt, fire.

    Staci Coleman: They call it a “shock wave” and you kind of feel that, that wave almost internally. Like, it’s almost as if you, your organs are, you know, kind of wavering around inside.

    Sgt. Kimo Keltz was outside the bunkers, manning a guard post in case the missile barrage was followed by a ground assault.

    Kimo Keltz: We got down and we protected our, our vital organs, our heads, and we waited.

    David Martin: Did it blow you around?

    Kimo Keltz: In one of the closest ones that had hit directly near us had actually lifted my body about two inches off the ground.

    Iran fired a total of 16 missiles from three locations – five missed, 11 landed at Al Asad.
    From first launch to last impact was 80 minutes. Somehow no one was killed. When the sun came up, the survivors surveyed the damage.

    Tim Garland: Shells of a building, you know, skeletal frames left with nothing else. Craters about a room size deep into the ground. Concrete barriers blown across a field or a street.

    John Haines: It looked like a scene from a movie where everything is destroyed around you, but yet, no one was killed.

    Staci Coleman: I still have no idea understanding other than, you know, God being on our side, that no one was seriously injured and there were no, you know, no, no fatalities.
    Alan Johnson: There are people throwing up, everybody had headaches.

    Kimo Keltz: I had a concussion for two weeks.

    David Martin: What’d it feel like?

    Kimo Keltz: Someone hitting me over the head with a hammer over and over and over.

    Alan Johnson: Finally, you know, hours later we realized, “We have a mass casualty event here of traumatic brain injury.”

    Military doctors diagnosed more than 100 cases of traumatic brain injury. Major Alan Johnson and 28 other soldiers received purple hearts.

    David Martin: Do you have any lingering effects today?

    Alan Johnson: Headaches every day, horrible tinnitus or ringing in the ears. PTSD. You know, I’ll be willing to admit that. I still have nightmares.
    Iran was on alert for a possible U.S. strike and hours later mistakenly shot down a Ukrainian airliner, thinking it was an American bomber. 176 entirely innocent people died.

    Biden Says US Will ‘Never’ Accept Russia’s Annexation of Crimea


    Biden Says US Will ‘Never’ Accept Russia’s Annexation of Crimea
    Statement released around the seventh anniversary of the annexation
    Dave DeCamp Posted onFebruary 26, 2021
    President Biden released a statement on Friday marking the seventh anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea where he said the US will “never” accept Russian sovereignty over the peninsula.

    “The United States continues to stand with Ukraine and its allies and partners today, as it has from the beginning of this conflict,” Biden said. “The United States does not and will never recognize Russia’s purported annexation of the peninsula, and we will stand with Ukraine against Russia’s aggressive acts.”

    Left out of Biden’s statement was the reason for the Russian annexation. In 2014, the US-orchestrated a coup in Ukraine. The largely ethnic Russian population of Crimea rejected the new nationalist anti-Russian government in Kyiv that even had neo-nazis in its midst. Polls after the annexation show the majority of Crimeans were in favor of joining Russia.

    The Biden family benefited greatly from the coup. Shortly after the change in government, President Biden’s son Hunter landed a high-paying job on the board of Burisma, a Ukrainian natural gas company.

    President Biden tapped an architect of the Ukraine coup for a high-level position in the State Department. Victoria Nuland, the wife of neoconservative Robert Kagan, is the nominee to be the under secretary of state for political affairs.

    A recording of a phone call between Nuland and then-US Ambassador to Ukraine Geoffrey Pyatt was leaked and released on YouTube on February 4th, 2014. In the call, Nuland and Pyatt discussed who should replace the government of former Ukrainian Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych, who was forced to step down on February 22nd, 2014.

    Johnson & Johnson one-shot Covid vaccine gets nod from FDA advisory panel
    Jessica Glenza
    Fri 26 Feb 2021 22.06 GMT

    1. Like the Moderna vaccine, Johnson & Johnson’s product will only be available to people 18 and older. Pfizer’s vaccine is available to teenagers older than 16.
    (The reproducing generations will not have their DNA affected by the vaccines)

    2. Johnson & Johnson’s vaccine uses different technology from the two vaccines currently available in the US. The new vaccine uses “viral vector” technology, which introduces the body to the genetic code for the spike protein covering the outside of the coronavirus. This code is transmitted by a second, weakened virus called an adenovirus. Immunity is provoked when the body’s immune system then recognizes the coronavirus by this key structure.
    Vaccines developed by Pfizer and Moderna also prompt the body to recognize spike proteins on the outside of the coronavirus, but deliver the genetic code through lipid nanoparticles, or tiny molecules of fatty acids.

    3. Currently, dozens of low- and middle-income countries do not expect to begin broadly distributing vaccine doses until 2022.
    ( As of now, these countries, (ie. India), seem to have herd immunity and don’t need the vaccine.)

    4. Activists, many of whom also worked to expand access to Aids medications, have described this as “vaccine apartheid”, and a threat to the “project of global population immunity”.
    ( Population control by using the vaccine could backfire)

    Association of SARS-CoV-2 Seropositive Antibody Test With Risk of Future Infection
    Raymond A. Harvey, MPH1; Jeremy A. Rassen, ScD1; Carly A. Kabelac, BS1; et al
    JAMA Intern Med. Published online February 24, 2021.

    Conclusions and Relevance
    In this cohort study, patients with positive antibody test results were initially more likely to have positive NAAT results, consistent with prolonged RNA shedding, but became markedly less likely to have positive NAAT results over time, suggesting that seropositivity is associated with protection from infection. The duration of protection is unknown, and protection may wane over time.

    limited research has shown that the majority of patients who clear their infections develop serum antibodies against the virus that last for at least several months1-6 but may decline over time.7 Although it has been speculated that the development of antibodies may be associated with a decreased risk of reinfection, the evidence for this hypothesis is limited and often anecdotal.8,9 Furthermore, documented reports of reinfection in patients with SARS-CoV-2 antibodies have raised the possibility that seropositivity might be associated with limited protection against different viral strains.10-14 Individuals infected with SARS-CoV-2 may also shed viral RNA without producing live virus for 12 weeks or more after resolution of symptoms,15-20 making it challenging to distinguish reinfection from prolonged RNA shedding.

    Massive expansion of human gut bacteriophage diversity

    Bacteriophages drive evolutionary change in bacterial communities by creating gene flow networks that fuel ecological adaptions. However, the extent of viral diversity and its prevalence in the human gut remains largely unknown.
    Here, we introduce the Gut Phage Database (GPD), a highly curated database containing 142,809 non-redundant phage genomes derived from the analysis of 28,060 globally distributed metagenomic samples. Importantly, the GPD includes over 40,000 high-quality genomes with a median size of 47.68 kb. We use GPD to gain insight into the biology, host range, and global epidemiology of human gut phages. We uncover 280 globally distributed viral clusters, including 1 viral clade (Gubaphage) with reminiscent features to p-crAssphage. Given the high quality of the reference genomes, the database size, and the sequence diversity harbored by the GPD, this resource will greatly improve the characterization of individual human gut bacteriophages at a global or local scale.
