China is a Threat, Not a Partner

Many in this country are under the mistaken impression that China is somehow reforming. It’s not, and I will beat this drum until my arms fall off.

China’s Hu tightens party’s grip on power

Chinese President Hu Jintao is emerging as an unyielding leader determined to preserve the Communist Party's monopoly on power and willing to impose new limits on speech and other civil liberties to do it

Hu has placed particular emphasis on tightening the party's control over public opinion, presiding over a crackdown to restore discipline to state media and intimidate dissident intellectuals.

In a recent comment often cited as a clue to his thinking, Hu wrote in an instruction to propaganda officials that though the economic policies of communist allies Cuba and North Korea were flawed, their political policies were correct.

Check out what the official media mouthpiece of the Chinese Communist Party has to say about America and it's allies.

America's three doors...

The pets' door, facing the Chinese mainland across the Taiwan Strait, is guarded by the Taidus under the Lee-Chen-Lu lackeys, who most inexplicably are paying exorbitant sums of money to protect their master.

Chinese protesters' egg-throwing defiance has already been spinned into mob violence in the Western and Japanese press. Who knows for certain if a Japanese spy is not amongst the demonstrators throwing firebombs? That's why the Chinese government took pains to control the crowds so that they would not be manipulated or misguided by agents with ulterior motives.

Propaganda at its finest. I’m sure our government, and other governments in the world will continue to stick their heads in the sand, but I won’t. Even though this small site can’t really make much difference, at least I will be able to look back and use my four favorite words; I told you so.
