I confess that my point was, I am not sure of your politics and maybe, you not mine.


I'm not sure of my politics either.  

My suggestion is for China to continue to be "wise as a fox gentle as a dove.'  There is something to be said for being so damn naive everyone becomes baffled.....telling the truth constantly really does free up your mind for other things. Or, if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all.

This may not address your point, but it's finally above 65F here and sunny for the first time in 3 weeks and it's time to frolic .....

wiseoldlady

Well it has reached the heady heights of 0 degrees here in Beijing.

And this week I will go back down to Guangzhou where it will be exceedingly summery.

Maybe 10 degrees.


Yip, yip, coyote.

Mind you even 10 sounds a lot less than 65.

The western world.

Truly a marvellous place.

'wiseoldlady', makes the point that in war people need some hope or 'good news' for inspiration.

It is a good point and I understand that.

A psychological boost and I think that back in WWII when it was good against evil, it was 'fair dinkum'.


But it is not WWII and the US is at war, and the reasons are strange and almost obscure.

Esoturdsky cries 911, as he sits by his spring surrounded by nature and justifies the mayhem and pain being inflicted on innocent people in other countries who were already destitute.

But can 20 terrorists justify the incursion into 2 sovereign nations and the carnage inflicted on their peoples.

Theses 20 were not and never were representative of the governments of those countries.

The only gain in this horror is US business and military suppliers.

Just as in Vietnam, Cambodia, Laos when war provided unnecessary death to innocent people who probably didn't even understand the word communist.


This article is the result of a depraved and corrupt regime trying to deflect their vile bigotry from the profits of killing and hegemony.

"God Bless America".


I just hope that God does not exist.

If only to keep the myopic US citizens from Hell.

US government faked Bush news reports

The Guardian
Tuesday 16 March 2004 14.27 GMT

TV news reports in America that showed President George Bush getting a standing ovation from potential voters have been exposed as fake, it has emerged.

The US government admitted it paid actors to pose as journalists in video news releases sent to TV stations intending to convey support for new laws about health benefits.

Investigators are examining the film segments, in which actors pretending to be journalists praise the benefits of the new law passed last year by President Bush, to see if they could be construed as propaganda.

Two of the films are signed off by "Karen Ryan", who was an actor hired to read a script prepared by the government, according to production company Home Front Communications.

Another video, intended for Hispanic viewers, shows a government official being interviewed in Spanish by a actor posing as a reporter with the name "Alberto Garcia".

One segment shows a pharmacist telling an elderly customer the new law "helps you better afford your medications".
"It sounds like a good idea," the customer says, to which the pharmacist replies, "A very good idea."

And in some scenes President Bush is shown receiving a standing ovation from a crowd cheering him as he signed the Medicare law, which is designed to help elderly people with prescriptions.

The government also prepared scripts to be used by news anchors. "In December, President Bush signed into law the first-ever prescription drug benefit for people with Medicare," the script reads.
