2. China: Following a call for a “Jasmine Revolution” in China, several gatherings took place in different Chinese cities Feb. 20, including Beijing and Shanghai. It is important not to look at the China gatherings only through the lens of a Tunisia- or Egypt-style “revolution.” Where did the call originate? Why were there no organizers present at the announced rally sites? Why were the 13 targeted cities chosen, but others left off the list? Why distribute a call for a popular protest in China over websites and blogs commonly blocked or monitored in China. Was there external involvement? Is this a one-off incident, or does it portend further attempts or the potential for a wider movement of activism across China?
Honestly do you think this will work? I am not so sure, and such a tactic will back fire, if it has not for him already!
As for the currency manipulation, well are they not doing the same as the banks, additionally with the massive trade surplus, I would be afraid of what would happen if they let it loose on the FOREX full and live.

Interesting times, especially as just the other night Donald Trump goes on CNN spouting how he might run for President, and if elected he is gonna face down those Chinese, becuase(sic) he has worked with them, and knows them, and considers them "The ENEMY"
Really he said that, on CNN, repeatedly in fact, then bragged ab out how much he knew them from many business deals.
Well guess what Mr Trump. I think that statement there was the PRC just saying, actually Donny, now you won't be!!!
As for whatever else they may be referring too. It's probably true and the US is scared as it will be overtaken economically very soon by the PRC, and there is not a damn thing they can do to stop it, bar covert war. as they know that actual war with China would be suicide!!
