BEIJING -- Police and security officials displayed a massive show of force here and in other Chinese cities Sunday, trying to snuff out any hint of protests modeled on the uprisings in the Middle East. In Shanghai, several hundred people trying to gather were dispersed with a water truck.

The article is interesting. Of course, we all expect some dissatisfaction with the government by the people of China. Also, we expect the pre-emptive crackdown on any such public arranging.

What I didn't expect was the government to pre-emptively agree to eliminate corruption in the gov.

Check it out.

Take this with a grain of salt. Washington post has a history of stretching the truth a bit. (Doesn't every media outlet?)

As a liberal media source their agenda is to overthrow the current capitalist system here in America, and the only way to do that is to make people think that everyone else in the world is protesting their governments. They hope these types of stories will make it seem like its the norm to protest the government....SO even the slightest rebellion in another country will be blown completely out of proportion by liberal media bias.

ERRRrrrr, WHAT "capitalist system here in America"???


Capitalism has been dead since the FED was legalized in 1913.

Cheap counterfeit fiat currency ALWAYS chases out capitalism. What we have in the USA is a sophisticated Con game designed to siphon money out of the sheeples pocket into that of the banksters. When ever anyone protests it is blamed on the "EVIL capitalists" The Bankers of course LOVE socialism and Wars because they prime the pump by having the government "borrow" printed on the spot "money" which the tax payer must pay back WITH INTEREST from his labor.

The bankers have OWNED the media since 1917:

U.S. Congressional Record February 9, 1917: J.P. Morgan interests bought 25 of America's leading newspapers, and inserted their own editors, in order to control the media. www.mindfully.org...

JP Morgan: Our next big media player? (April 13, 2010) JP Morgan controls 54 U.S. daily newspapers,and owns 31 television stations. www.newsandtech.com...



I am surprised the Chinese people actually got up the courage to protest since the Chinese government is usually pretty brutal in squashing any dissent.

BEIJING — Violence erupted Friday morning in a busy market area of the Tibetan capital, Lhasa, as Buddhist monks and other ethnic Tibetans brawled with Chinese security forces in bloody clashes.

....In the past China has not hesitated to crush major protests in Tibet or to jail disobedient monks. President Hu Jintao, who is also the general secretary of the Communist Party, served as party boss in Tibet during a violent crackdown in 1989. His support for the bloody suppression of unrest that year earned him the good will of Deng Xiaoping, then the paramount leader, and led directly to his elevation to the Politburo Standing Committee and eventually to China’s top leadership posts.... www.nytimes.com...


It makes Americans look like well mannered wimps.

from wikipedia...

Capitalism is an economic system in which the means of production are privately owned and operated for a private profit; decisions regarding supply, demand, price, distribution, and investments are made by private actors in the free market; profit is sent to owners who invest in businesses, and wages are paid to workers employed by businesses and companies.


but i do agree with what you said here

Yes, in the end the rich get richer, but in the mean time I get to run my business and earn capital for a private profit.
