Ever thought about writing for the western media press.

You might even reach a stage where you would be almost mediocre at it .............

And therefore, eminently suitable.

I mean it would not be like writing for educated people.


The way you introduce a sad case and personalize the details is very compelling.

Reminds me of the sad stories of Bosnia, Iraq and Afghanistan which sold war to the western alliances populations.


Far better for 500,000 people to die on the rabble side ...............

And avenge the justice of the one.


Having said that I think our friend you mentioned would have been better off getting on with his studies.

Unfortunately, as you have pointed out in other threads, study is a waste of time for the Chinese.


We will just have to accept the fact that this poor chap was doomed from the start.

I take it you will send him regular food parcels to show your solidarity ? ................

I love how the Han chauvinists get their knickers in a twist because the government ignores these fringe lunatics like amnysty international. What is the point of getting angry and attacking them?  ...

................................................................

A very good example of these western philanthropists is Cuba .................

It has its own legitimate government and is not a threat to the US.

But they sanction the island and say it will stay that way till there is regime change .......... ?   

I mean, what is all that about?


On top of that they hold Guantanamo on a legal technicality and will not return it ......


Honesty, truth, fairness and integrity ...................

Reply #8 Kbay's post

Kbay, you can never influence western minds using western media and western languages.    There is no such thing as "public relations" in international politics.  There is only one thing:  US hegemony, including US media power and the sum total of all its "allied" media power.

Ignore them and do not give them too much attention.  Only deal with them at the government to government level.

And keep winning friends all over the world.  And they will vote for China in the UN.  That's good enough.

As for the Westerners, keep up the trade and earn money.   Nothing else is necessary.

When will US be transparent?

Diego_Garcia

Prison site allegation
Human rights groups claim that the military base is used by the U.S. government for the controversial extraordinary rendition of prisoners. This claim was supported by the Council of Europe in June 2007.[24] The British Foreign Secretary Jack Straw stated in Parliament that U.S. authorities have repeatedly assured him that no detainees have passed in transit through Diego Garcia or have disembarked there.[25] In October 2007 the all-party Foreign Affairs Committee of the British Parliament announced that it would launch an investigation of the claims, which it is reported were twice confirmed by General Barry McCaffrey.[26]

On October 19, 2007 The Guardian reported: "The all-party foreign affairs committee is to examine long-standing suspicions that the agency has operated one of its so-called "black site" prisons on Diego Garcia..."[26] The Guardian quoted British MP Andrew Tyrie, "Time and time again the UK government has relied on US assurances on this issue, refusing to examine the truth of these allegations for themselves. It is high time our government took its head out of the sand and looked into these allegations."

On July 31, 2008 Time Magazine reported that a former White House official stated that the U.S. had imprisoned and interrogated at least one suspect on Diego Garcia during 2002 and possibly 2003.[27]

Manfred Nowak, the United Nations' special rapporteur on torture, says that credible evidence exists supporting allegations about the use of Diego Garcia as a prison black site for alleged terrorists. Furthermore, Clara Gutteridge, an investigator with human rights group Reprieve, stated that US-operated ships moored outside the territorial waters of Diego Garcia were used to incarcerate and torture detainees.[28]

[edit] Rendition admission
On February 21, 2008, British Foreign Secretary David Miliband admitted that two US extraordinary rendition flights refuelled on Diego Garcia in 2002.[29] Further, it has been implied that these actions constituted a direct breach of the treaty between the US and the UK concerning Diego Garcia.[30][6]

[edit] Arrests
On 12 March 2008, The Guardian reported that two British protesters had been arrested for illegally entering the waters of Diego Garcia.[31]
