Here's the trouble.

Chinese embassy in Japan tweeted then deleted. The tweet, in Japanese, reads "when the US brings democracy this is what happens"

I fully agree with the tweet AND also know it is anti-US propaganda to deflect attention away from China's own atrocities.

Both are true, it's funny about putting a swastika on the Chinese, they left that special Cigar room only star off the first one.

Star of David is on the first pic, on the scythe.

As for the swastika, probably just amuses the Chinese as that symbol both clockwise and counterclockwise are found all over east asia in buddhist temples. Not as much in mainland, cuz they destroyed many of them.

Campbell: US will coordinate with Japan on Taiwan

The US government's top coordinator on Asian policy has noted that China is stepping up pressure on Taiwan, and indicated that his country will work with Japan to maintain the status quo across the Taiwan Strait.
The US policy coordinator for Indo-Pacific affairs, Kurt Campbell, took part in an online event hosted by the Financial Times on Tuesday.
Campbell noted that China is ramping up provocations such as flying fighter aircraft near Taiwan.
He said the US has to be clear in its public statements that it is focused on the matter and will be prepared to sustain peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait.
Campbell noted the significance of Japanese Prime Minister Suga Yoshihide and US President Joe Biden's reference to Taiwan in their post-summit statement last month, the first such reference in over 50 years.
He said it was designed to send a very clear message to Taiwan and Beijing about their determination to enhance deterrence, and to make clear their desire to ensure that Taiwan can live in peace.
Campbell added that he believes the US will take appropriate steps with Japan on a host of efforts.
He was asked about the US position on the Senkaku Islands in the East China Sea. Japan controls the islands. China and Taiwan claim them.
The Japanese government maintains the islands are an inherent part of Japan's territory, in terms of history and international law. It says there is no issue of sovereignty to be resolved over them.
Campbell said the US has been clear that it believes Japan exerts effective administrative control over the islands and that any challenge to them would be interpreted within the context of the US-Japan security treaty.
He said the Biden administration has reasserted that at the highest level.
