Trust the communist rulers of China to come out with either statements or actions that make them look like asses. Just a few pointers in the past 1 month or so.
1. China threatens to dump all the dollars it holds as foriegn exchange and switch to some other currency (Euro, Yen, Pound etc). China is not going to dump the more than 1 trillion USD it holds into the garbage dump for sure. When it will exchange it for some other currency, someone is buying it up. So where does the question arise of the US economy collapsing due to the dollar dumping? Also does China believe that 1 trillion dollars is enough to condemn the whole US economy? There are the Japanese, Arabs, European countries who will be gladly willing to mop up the excess dollar liquidity in the market. Surely the Europeans would not want the dumping to make the dollar cheaper and hence their products costlier in the market. So, to pre-empt, they will will simply buy all the excess dollars in the market.
2. The Indian navy will have joint maritime exercise with USA, Japan, Australia, Singapore in the Indian Ocean. Now China objects to the fact that all democratic countries are ganging up against them. A few questions. Is Indian Ocean, the Chinese govt’s father’s property? Or should a sovereign country like India ask for permission from a tin pot dictatorial country like China for naval exercises? Or is it a crime to be a democratic country? The writ of the Indian navy runs in the Indian Ocean. Every country realises that which is why they like to have joint exercises with the Indians.
3. Its the familiar story again. China has banned another movie. This time, the movie of its favourite son “Jackie Chan”. They say, the movie speaks about Chinese mafia. You mean, there is no Chinese mafia? Does the Chinese tin pot commies want us to believe that its all peace and happiness in China? There is no crime? Its a fuckin movie for Gods sake, you morons.
Other Oscar winning performance of the Chinese govt include
Putting a blanket ban on any news that will be reported in the Chinese media about the thousands of toys that have been recalled by Mattel. After cardboard buns, poisoned pet food, poisoned food, medicines, SARS, Bird flu…. Trust China to come out with a variety of diseases every year to keep the global pharma industry profitable.
Manhandling the reporters from RSF (Reporters Sans Frontiers) who held a silent protest about the thousands of civil liberties, human rights and journalists imprisoned in the chinese prisons.
