Well, that's what happens when you think. Stop it immediately, it's bad for you.
Seriously though, you assumed that I was Japanese or in Taiwan because I said bad things about the CCP? Wow
, you need to get your head out of
the sand. Deriding a country's current government doesn't mean you're saying bad things about the country itself. Any government is transitory, the
CCP included. The CCP is not
China. 56 years is a piece of pidgeon poop compared to the history of China. I criticise the Australian
government, whether Labour or Liberal. Does that mean I don't like Australia, or that I couldn't be Australian?
I've also criticized the
Japanese government and Taiwan's DPP, so I guess you must be a little confused by now. Seems you only skimmed for the parts where I criticized the
CCP, displayed by your comment of "please don't use my thread to attack China", when I was attacking the CCP, not
China. Hope this clears
things up a little.
Yeah, of course I know what you mean by biased Western media. We in the West point at Al Jazeera and Xin Hua and cry "bias!", "propaganda!",
"brainwashing!", all the while blinded to the exact same elements in our own, often state-funded or state-funding
, media. One man's
terrorist is another man's freedom fighter. One man's warmonger is another man's righteous warrior. It's all in the perspective.

However, the suspension followed a report on BBC World about the banned spiritual group Falun Gong that was broadcast repeatedly on June 30 and July
Here's a list of websites blocked in China as of Nov 2002, maintained by Harvard Uni's Internet Law dept.
Here's an article by the same dept. on the issue.
Basically, say anything bad about the CCP, human rights in China, or show strong opposition to CCP policy and you get the axe. I wonder how long ATS
will be up...?
