I just ran across an old comment on a closed thread by thankopam
"The Wowzers Ai Weiwei threeds is akin to supporting threads for the Al Qaeda group in the CNN forum."


Looking around this forum at some of the reactions here, it doesn't look like he is alone in his thoughts here.

But do you see at all how this looks to an outsider?  (not saying you have to care)

I mean really.....an artist is the same as al qaeda?

What kind of sheltered world do you live in where an artist is seen as enemy number #1?

The rest of the word have REAL issues to deal with like REAL attacks that cause REAL casualties.

It's like you guys are living in some fairy tale land if the worst you can see is an artist and a monk.

If that is your worst - send me a ticket to china please.

There is obviously no security issues there at all.  Nothing to worry about.  

Don't you think almost anyone in the world would trade you for your 'enemies' for theirs?

It's like the difference between bunnies and wolves.

I just can't for the life of me understand why any of you cry over this?  You should be celebrating if that is all you have to worry about!!!

Get some perspective for christ's sake!

Oh ........ !

So, you have no idea about what America is or does then ......  ?

How it changes regimes to suit its own policies and not necessarily for the nicest guys  ........

How they meddle and interfere in internal politics of others using human right as the excuse  ......

Yet support some of the worst regimes in the world  ........

My they have done a good job on you ...........

What does any of that have to do with what I posted?

Are you saying it makes a difference to the american citizens?

If I am being made a target because of my government, that doesn't help me sleep easier.

But you all, on the other hand....

Seem to have absolutely NO WORRIES at all.  That is my point.

What the hell are you whining about if your biggest threat is an artist or a monk?

I'll trade you 'enemies' - give you something to whine about.

And expatter.....ok, let's put it this way then, since you can only view the US as the worlds' biggest evil.

Don't you think the afghans would LOVE to have a freakin artist as their public enemy number one?

Instead of worrying about attacks and tribal wars, US hegemony, etc.....don't you think they would welcome an artist as their biggest fear and threat to their security?

The world laughs at you an this obsession over an artist of all people.

I bet India would love to trade your artist for their security concerns.

Who wouldn't?

It's almost a 'let them eat cake' thing.
