Chinese Media: ‘Crush’ Tibet Protests

March 22nd, 2008 . by TexasFred

BEIJING (AP) - The flagship newspaper of China’s ruling Communist Party called Saturday for efforts to “resolutely crush” anti-government demonstrations by Tibetans, while Beijing urged people to turn in those on a “Most Wanted” list of 21 protesters.

As Chinese troops smothered Tibetan-heavy areas to avert additional unrest, U.S. presidential hopeful John McCain, a Republican, and House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, joined a growing international chorus of criticism against the crackdown.

The protests, which started in Lhasa on the March 10 anniversary of a failed uprising against Chinese rule, turned violent four days later and touched off demonstrations among Tibetans in three other provinces.

The movement has become the largest challenge to China’s control of Tibet since the 1959 uprising. It also has threatened Beijing’s attempts to project an image of unity and prosperity ahead of the Aug. 8-24 Olympics.

Chinese Media: ‘Crush’ Tibet Protests

China is once again showing the world how they deal with those that refuse to walk in lockstep with their communist regime, run over them with tanks, shoot them, whatever it takes, communism must rule…

And as much as the world tries to encourage the Chinese government to act otherwise, the Chinese refuse, and will continue to refuse until such time as they are forced to do otherwise, much like radical Islam…

And we support China, all of us, you, me, every American, we buy their tainted products, we buy anything they make and are willing to ship to our markets, and we do it because they, the Chinese, make massive amounts of whatever they make and they do it cheaply, forced labor works like that, and the Chinese government gets richer every day, not the Chinese people, the Chinese government, and by giving them the money to build a massive Olympics facility and stage the games, perhaps that facility, and the coming Olympics can be used as a weapon against the Chinese government itself…

Also in todays news, China may ban live Olympics broadcasts, so, why don’t we, the USA, completely boycott the Chinese Olympic games?? Our president is so concerned with freedom and political correctness, wouldn’t that be a way to lodge a strong protest, with some serious teeth in it, and give the Chinese government a reason to rethink their moods and attitudes??

And if The Bush were to encourage ALL free nations to do likewise, well, the possibilities are endless when you think of what a boycott like that could bring about, and if we, the American people, refused to buy the cheap and plentiful, albeit poisonous products of a nation that murders anyone that has the gall to stand against it, wouldn’t that be a real stand against human oppression and a blow FOR human rights on our part??

China is consumed with a morbid fear that the world will see them for what they really are, and it’s happening as we speak, but they can, and most likely will ban anything LIVE from leaving China as the killings in Tibet and any other place of protest continue…

All we have to do now is get the world, but most particularly the USA, over it’s apathy and break our Made in China addiction as we send a powerful message to the Chinese, if you cut off the money the Chinese receive from the citizens of the USA, their political and military economy falls into serious jeopardy…

As my good friend Bloviating Zeppelin says about the politics of the Republican party, “Hit em where it hurts, hit em in the wallet and get their attention, send money to ‘good’ causes, charities and so forth…”, the same applies to the Chinese government, take the money away and the power wanes, once that happens, if the Chinese people don’t have the will and/or desire to throw off the bonds of their oppressors, screw em, they aren’t worth saving anyway…

    I kinda figure that the Chinese government is more fascist than communist these days but in any event they damn sure are not a free people.

    But there are ways of putting the pressure on the Chinese government via economics…not enough to bring them to war but just enough to get them to realize that they need the exports as much as the reast of the world needs to import from them.

    China is undergoing some growing pains inherent with a switch from a communistic society to a capitalist society..and by the way fascist have nothing against capitalism provided they can maintain control…

    Problem is that the Chinese public sees the advantage of capitalism and are demanding more of it..including those in Tibet. Now seeing as how there are a couple of billion Chinese and a Chinese military of millions one would think that if the Chinese public wanted more freedom they could demand it and get it..we’ll see I reckon.

    The Chinese are afraid to change. A billion little army ants who enjoy having some one tell them what to do and what to say (or what not to say). I guess that makes them free to be captives…

    Guyk, I totally agree with you!

    I really think it is the moment to boycott China government… This cold-war situation is no more acceptable to me!

    We have two chineese people working with us one permanent and the other is here learning our product. Me being sort of a person who sees nothing wrong with asking a quetion asked them how they feel about what is going on back in China. Both said oh things are growing and everyone is happy. I asked about the government and neither one would say anything about it. One is a permanent resident, but has relatives still liveing in China. They are both from mainladn China. The biggest here there is Yao Ming of the Houston Rockets. Close WalMart China goes out of business. But then where would us common working class people shop

    First, thanks for the link. Second, somehow we’d have to bring textile manuacturing (and SO many other types of manufacturing) back to the US. We’ve lost so much of what I call “institutional memory” that I wonder if we can. The devil is in the details and the details include unions. Adding a union to any work element = MORE $$ — paid to the workers, costs to the business and transferred to the consumers. WOULD the U.S. consumer pay $45 for a new cotton button-down long sleeved shirt if it were made in the U.S., vs the same shirt available at Mervyn’s for $19.95 but made in China, Taiwan or Bangladesh?

    BZ, people flock to Starbucks several times a day to pay 6 or 7 bucks for a crappy cup of stuff that passes for coffee, it’s ALL about perspective I think…

    This has given me pause; perhaps its time for a post on the matter on my blog. CAN we take our industrial power back?

    BZ, I think it’s a topic that’s right up your alley… :D

  9. comment number 9 by: GUYK

    yeah BZ, we can but I have my doubts the American public has the balls to do it because it will mean some sacrifice on their part and god knows the public doesn’t want a nasty old business making a profit.

    The best thing that could happen is to elect a government that will realize that labor is part of the cost of doing business and pass a nation wide right to work law..one would think that the rest of the nation would take a look at the areas where business has moved and taken hold and is actually showing a profit..such as Florida and other states that have a right to work law..

    As it is now law is stacked against business in favor of labor..and if government would at least if government would even the playing field it would give business a chance for success. As it is now the big manufacturers are losing money because of labor costs and regulations and having to move off shore just to stay in business..
