An Awakening Message by Duo-Liang Lin

An Awakening Message Enough is enough, there is limit on everything.  Watch out, the last straw on the camel's back could be imminent ...........  China should thanks Osama bin Laden for giving her some breathing space. If the WTC twin towers were not toppled, CIA will be busy financing, training and arming the Sinkiang muslim terrorist and the Tibetian rebels to destabalise China and slow down the the economic development.
In response to "Fair Assessment--- China is not a Superpower---Not Yet" by Helen Wang (from the US), perhaps you should read the following poem "An Awakening Message" by D.L. Lin (also from the US), dated April 2008.AN AWAKENING MESSAGE(A Poem Published by the Washington Post)
When we were the Sick Man of Asia , We were called The Yellow Peril.
When we are billed to be the next Superpower, we are called The Threat.
When we closed our doors, you smuggled opium to open markets.
When we embrace Free Trade, You blame us for taking away your jobs.
When we were falling apart, You marched in your troops & wanted your fair share.

When we tried to put the broken pieces back together again, Free Tibet you screamed, It Was an Invasion!

When we tried Communism, you hated us for being Communist.

When we embrace Capitalism, you hate us for being Capitalist.

When we have a billion people, you said we were destroying the planet.

When we tried limiting our numbers,you said we abused human rights.

When we were poor, you thought we were dogs.

When we loan you cash, you blame us for your national debts.

When we build our industries,you call us Polluters.

When we sell you goods, you blame us for global warming.

When we buy oil, you call it exploitation and genocide.

But when you go to war for oil, you call it liberation.

When we were lost in chaos and rampage, you demanded rules of law.

When we uphold law and order against violence, you call it violating human rights.

When we were silent, you said you wanted us to have free speech.

When we are silent no more, you say we are brainwashed-xenophobics.

Why do you hate us so much, we asked.

No, you answered, we don't hate you.

We don't hate you either,

But, do you understand us?

Of course we do, you said, We have AFP, CNN and BBC's...

What do you really want from us?

Think hard first, then answer...
Because you only get so many chances.
Enough is Enough, Enough Hypocrisy for This One World.
We want One World, One Dream, and Peace on Earth.
This Big Blue Earth is Big Enough for all of Us.

当我们是东亚病夫,

我们被称为黄祸。

当我们被宣传为下一个超级大国时,

我们被称为威胁。

当我们关上我们的大门,

你们走私鸦片来打开市场。

当我们拥抱自由贸易时,

你们责骂我们夺走了你们的工作。

当我们四分五裂的时候,

你走在你的部队和要求公平分赃。
当我们试图把碎片重新结合在一起,

免费你们叫嚣“西藏独立”,这是侵略!
当我们尝试共产主义,

你们恨我们是共产主义。
当我们拥抱资本主义,

你们恨我们是资本家。
当我们有十亿人民时,

你们说我们正在摧毁这个星球。
当我们试图限制我们的数字,

你们说我们滥用人权。
当我们贫穷时,

你们认为我们是狗。
当我们借给你们现金时,

你们骂我们使你们的国家债务。
当我们建设我们的工业时,

你们称我们是污染者。
当我们卖给你们商品时,

你们责备我们助长全球变暖。
当我们购买石油,

你称是剥削和种族灭绝。
但是,当你们为石油而战,

你们说是解放。
当我们迷失在混乱和狂躁,

你要求的法律规则。
当我们维护法律和秩序,反对暴力,

你说这侵犯了人权。
当我们沉默时,

你说你希望我们有言论自由。
当我们不再沉默时,

你说我们是被洗脑的仇外。
你为什么这么恨我们,我们问。
你的回答,不,我们不恨你。
我们不恨你们。
但是,你们了解我们吗?
当然,我们这样做,你说,
我们有媒体AFP,CNN和英国广播公司(BBC)的“...
你真的想从我们这里吗?
仔细想想,再回答......
因为你只能得到这么多的机会。

够了,够了,

够虚伪,这同一个世界。

我们希望同一个世界,

同一个梦想,和地球上的和平。

这个蓝色大地球大得足以容纳我们所有人。

An Awakening Message by Duo-Liang Lin.

When Japan was economically successful,  it was Japan bashing .  Now it's China bashing when China is getting a bit successful.  If you haven't heard of China bashing before,  the above poem pretty much summarised it. In the following paragraphs, I'll  try to clarify some of the facts and mindsets about China, hoping they can help some people to understand.  The West ( US & formerly Europe & Britain) practice hegemony and don't seem to care what the third world  feel  at all.  Third world countries have a right to grow, be strong and be successful too!  
Inspite of the last 30 years of advance in city infrastructure and other hardwares, China is still  a very poor country of  1.3 billion including a  poverty-stricken farming population of 650 million, and  a corrupt /backward government.  Anyone who  have been to China can see that.   We in HK are so close to China that we probably know it better than anyone else.  But the West blows the whole thing out of proportion, calling China a Superpower, and a threat, which is simply not the case.   Author Helen Wang rightly pointed out in her book,  saying........ China is in many ways, too backward to qualify as a superpower........it has a long way to go.  However what she should realise  is that the West is using the rise of a Superpower as  a covenient pretext  to blame and bash China for their own economic woes and diplomatic failures.  Yet business is business.  Trade still go on as long as there is a profit.
As far as I can see,  China has a lot of catching up to do.  China has more internal problems than it can handle.  China is more involved in solving its own problems, such as feeding its millions, providing them with  jobs, keep the rich/poor gap narrowed down, fighting corruption & inflation, and give people a decent living .....etc etc.  So far the progress made are stained with blood, sweat and tears.  Every time one uses an INTEL, HP or Apple, there are many parts inside that are made in China's sweat shops. This is just one example which is all over the news in recent days.  Cheap products from China actually kept US inflation down for years!  Sounds like a win/win situation.  However what does the average worker gets for assembling the IC chips..........a mere US$120/m.  They work very hard, but very very  sad.  I have stories to tell........much later.
It's really a conspiracy of the West to contain China from expansion, just like containing the Soviet Union from expansion in the Cold War days.  Why is  there  a European Union and  NATO, SEATO and other alliances?   It's the post -WWII  Western strategy to contain the two communist giants, a strategy which is still in force today,  but rather out-dated, since Russia and China are no longer communists.  Why does the US has over one thousand military bases around the world and seven fleets patrolling the seas? ( China has none.) Because the politicians in the West have  to justify their  governments' expenditure on the military.  Because the arms dealers and manufacturers have to lobby the politicians to sell their weapons.  Because the Western nations want to perpetuate a Western dominant world.  Fair assessment?
200 years ago, after fallen behind the West, China was attacked by Britain first, then plundered, looted, colonised by a league of 8 nations,  even conquered by Japan.  The next  100 years, China  suffered 2 revolutions, 2 World Wars,  plus Civil War and internal struggle,  China, as a nation,  is flatout, downtrodden, and experiencing total collapse . All it wants now is to rebuild a country from its pieces, to give its people food, shelter,  clothing,  a decent life and restore some dignity to a "sick" nation.  What can be more noble and humanistic than that?    Many people do think China's leaders deserve to be awarded a Nobel Peace Price for their contribution to lead  a quarter of mankind out of poverty and starvation!  President Gorbachev received a Nobel Peace Price for liberating the Soviet Union in 1989, a huge political change for  Eastern Europe.  I think China's achievement is more internal, but economical change is just as great if not greater.   Why the West are so negative about China !  Fair assessment or not?
What about the arms race?  The US and Russia  have enough nuclear arsenal to destroy the world ten  times over.  But China can hardly defend itself against the real Superpowers.  China just want to stand on its own two feet, and not being bullied  by any other powers. If one should understand the Chinese mindset, our culture of Confucius, Mencius, Laotze, Chuangtze and Buddha, all teaches harmony among men, harmony between  men and nature.........what 5000 years of history has taught us that wars and killings will not solve any problems, but will create more problems.  That's why China's leaders keep stressing China's position is not to seek the first  strike in any conflict,  a sharp contrast to some other country's "pre-emptive strike" mindset.  China has not invaded any country in the last 200 years. China has not one soldier  combating abroad today.  It seems that China  may not want to be a Superpower now.  Its Economics 101 ......guns or butter?   The answer is clear.

Guess I spoke enough.........not in defence or accusation, but to help international understanding.

It is getting boring.

The same refrain has been posted here, slightly altered, several times.

For a start, Truth is never boring. Only a Fake and a Hypocrite like you can't face the bluntness of the TRUTH!

There you lie and distort the TRUTH again with your twisted statement  that ........

The original post is not about "truth" either; it is a whiney person's belief that the West has always persecuted little China.

Historical facts don't lie!

Why do Chinese not understand why other races view them as a threat? Surely Chinese realise that by rapidly building their military, while engaged with several countries in bitter territory disputes, causes some concern amongst its neighbours and their allies.

That poem is typical of the victim mentality of some Chinese people. Other countries were colonised, others suffered at the hands of Imperial Japanese, others had civil wars and revolutions etc. Vietnam suffered 1000 years of Chinese rule, then 100 years of French rule, then multiple wars for Independence and unification which killed millions, then economic isolation, but you never hear them whine like some Chinese do.
I may disagree with what you say, but I'll defend to the death your right to say it - Voltaire

The secret of freedom lies in educating people, whereas the secret of tyranny is in keeping them

Writer's real name is Lau Guan Kim.  lau_guan_kim is for commentary and analysis. He writes also under another alter ego jinseng. I will respond to good reasoned debate. Mudslingers shall be ignored. What I do not like are ignorance, stupidity, chauvinism and bigotry. The other party has as much right as I have until it resorts to insults and nuisance.
