Speculation grows on mr. Nguyen Phu Trong as he misses mr. Anh's funeral. Ah, and mr. Anh got Guardian, Telegraph, BBC, WaPo obits...

Rumor-mongering article on the health of Trong, who might not make it to the next National Congress in 2021:

Former U.S. diplomat Joseph C. Wilson who gained international attention with his 2003 op-ed piece in the New York Times, 'What I Didn't Find in Africa.'  dead at 69 years.

The piece detailed his trip to Niger, in which he investigated claims that Saddam Hussein had attempted to purchase yellowcake uranium with the intention of developing nuclear weapons.

In 2004, he published the memoir The Politics of Truth, in which he heavily criticized the administration of George W. Bush and the events which led to the outing of his CIA operative wife.

He was portrayed by actor Sean Penn in the biographical drama Fair Game, released in 2010.

On October 1st 2019 there will be the 70th anniversary of People's Republic of China founding. Besides the remaining founding fathers of PRC, which are four, only two of whom (Jiao Ruoyu and Wan Haifeng) are indeed notable, it will be interesting to see which cadres show up. Zhu Rongji, Wen Jiabao, Hu Jintao have not taken part to Li Peng's funeral, still are being advertised for this event. Reportedly Jiang Zemin and Song Ping are too sick to be there. Song Ping was also recently widowed, I'd be surprised if he sees the year out.

 

Jiang Zemin turned up.

Yes, even Song Ping was there. The only notable absence was Zhu Rongji.

Hmm, that's the end of his campaign...a 78-year old man with heart problems. Sometimes it's as simple as this.

I mean, I'm still pretty sue Biden is losing his marbles (and Trrump has none at all), but it hasn't stopped either one of them yet...

 

IMO, there needs to be a max age limit for running for President - I'd say 70 - but that'll never happen, so this sort of news will continue to happen.

A letter was published to prove Zhu Rongji is still alive. Theories are he did not take part to celebration to express his dissent about what's happening in Hong Kong. Jiao Ruoyu couldn't make it either.
