    The asian men‘s bronze medal match will decide the last quota to WCH by ranking. The quota competition is between China and Ukraine. After watching the ACH I think the current world ranking system is quite controversial. The 5th team gained a lot of points through winning two consecutive 5-8 ranking matches while the 4th team will lose many points by losing 2 consecutive matches after reaching semifinals. To be clear I think Qatar received many undeserved points and qualified to WCH as 5th but 4th will not qualify for sure.
     
    Also the system made Australia lost many points by attending VNL while China escaped from losing points by withdrawal. I have to admit we also sometimes benefit from this controversial system.

    Beijing2022 motto is Together for a Shared Future,  in Chinese 一起向未来. It’s as generic as the Tokyo one and apparently no resource putting on it.

    So does it mean that North Korea is banned to participate Beijing 2022? Actually many North Korean live in Beijing and they don't have to travel or quarantine, some of them can participate if granted wild card.

    Chinese media quoted BBC reporting that Beijing2022 is expected with full capacity of spectators. Let me put this clear, if authority wants to promote something with controversy then mainstream media will firstly report them quoting from foreign media. If it finds that people support the decision then it will do it. If if finds people oppose it then it will said it's rumor from overseas. Chinese national games will be held from 15th Sep. to 28th Sep. with at least 50% spectators and I bought tickets already. It's also a major test event to decide if spectators will be allowed for WOG.

    What US and some its value sharing allies don’t understand is that in poor countries with poverty what people urgently need is not freedom or democracy. They may even never think about that. What they need is food and clean water. The next step is meat, shelter and land. The next next step is money, education and healthcare. The final is step is dignity, recognition, freedom and democracy. But the west just skip all this and tell them democracy cures all and you should fight and die for it.

    The process of naturalization is almost finished and there is almost no public hearings or interviews. Most Chinese fans are not aware of it at all so I don't know general opinion. For me, Chinese blood players are never with problems, East and Middle Asian players are not big problems since they also partially live in China. For typical non-Asian players, I personally don't encourage the naturalization but still acceptable if the amount is not too many in the team and 3 people is still reasonable for me. Below is the Kunlun Red Star team list with nationality showed. I presumed those with Chinese nationality will participate WOG.

    Trump doing U-turns is just a typical reflection of 2-party political system in US. I mean it's not a personal Trump stuff, it may apply to every GOP member. What else you may expect him to say like "Thanks my successor to fulfill my to-do list and take the blame I deserved"? Hell no. GOP will only take advantage of this chaos as an opportunity to affect midterm elections. It's just very pure politics.

    Look back what I said in June 23rd. From that time on, Chinese government kept urging all citizens leaving Afghanistan and offering help to book commercial flight tickets. It even warned that everyone chose to stay should bare all responsibility so zero evacuation flights from China after the takeover. Even what US predicted is right that ex-Afghan government could persist another 90 days, it didn't necessarily mean that Western citizens and at-risk Afghans should be evacuated at last 15-30 days. Given August 31st deadline is set, all civilian evacuation should be prior of that. The withdrawal is inevitable but could be much more decent and well-ordered.
