The guy in the video you posted did say the Philippines could be a diversionary tactic to drag forces south.

It's not hard to see how someone could get killed in a situation like that - in fact i think that will be the next ratchet up.

There's a lot of talk in the media about China's economy crashing but i think it's either (a) overblown or (b) missing the point that if China's economy goes south then so will the rest of the world's.

One article i read with a 'China economy crashing' headline actually said, when you got to the detail, that their exports had fallen from a ridiculously high growth to just good growth. Their economy is still growing at over 5% per year.

Meanwhile, hardly a week goes by in Aus without a building company collapsing, so the shit from Covid spending is starting to hit the fan. Not sure why building companies are going under - there seems to be plenty of demand - must be due to supply chain issues & a rise in the price of materials.
