China targets Home Affairs secretary Mike Pezzullo - ‘irresponsible’, a ‘troublemaker’, 'outrageous' and 'crazy'.
Here's the full question and answer in context:
Note the question comes from China's official government newspaper, the Global Times.
Global Times: Amid growing tensions between China and the US over Taiwan, Australian Home Affairs Department Secretary Mike Pezzullo highlighted the "protection afforded to Australia" by its military alliance with the US and New Zealand. He said, "Today, as free nations again hear the beating drums... let us continue to search unceasingly for the chance for peace while bracing again, yet again, for the curse of war". Australia must be prepared "to send off, yet again, our warriors to fight", he added. His remarks are believed by many local media outlets to be aimed at China. Does China have any comment on this?
Zhao Lijian: Some individual politicians in Australia, out of their selfish interests, are keen to make statements that incite confrontation and hype up threat of war, which is extremely irresponsible and will find no audience. These people are the real troublemakers. I have noticed that many people in Australia have expressed disapproval on social media, saying that such inflammatory language are outrageous and extremely crazy.
China has been a promoter of world peace, a contributor to global development and a defender of international order. China's development means opportunities for the world. As a country long benefited from cooperation with China, Australia is being untruthful and immoral with its false allegation of "China threat theory". This will only end up hurting its own interests. We urge certain individuals in Australia to shake off the Cold War mentality, stop making irresponsible remarks and act in ways that are conducive to regional peace and stability.
China is full-on playing the man!
For context, here's Mike Pezzullo's Anzac Day note to Home Affairs staff, published in full here:

Men claim more in tax deductions than women so is it time for standard deductions?A woman earning more than $100,000 a year claims less in deductions on average than a man earning the same income. Here's why and one way to stop it.abc.net.au
If you’d like to waste half a day, have a read through these 33 pages of self congratulatory bullshit from the ABC.
They have an entire unit of staff who quite seriously count the number of men and women who appear in TV, radio and internet articles - aiming for 50:50.
It’s no longer about what you say or how relevant you are - it’s about gender.
ABC staff (mostly the men) get a kick up the behind if they don’t gender balance - but of course, there’s no penalty for editorial imbalance.
So here’s the trick and how they cook up a fix to “the problem”.
If there’s a story about a crime and only male police officers and witnesses - dimwit news managers at the ABC order staff to go get meaningless vox pops from people to “gender balance the story”.
Or they’ll have a list of irrelevant academics to interview - just in case ...always women of course.
Meanwhile the ABC had the lowest rating TV news of the big TV outfits just about every night.
Sticking women in - just for the sake of it.
This is taxpayer TV under the watch of Ita Buttrose and virtue signalling so-called executives like Gaven Morris and John Lyons - both are an in-house laughing stock.
And you’re paying for this crap.
