This is a video of anti-Japanese protestors surrounding and throwing objects at the US ambassadors car in Beijing.



Eventually security guards arrive and move the protestors away.

Can you imagine the cries of indignation from the Chinese if this had happened to the Chinese ambassador in the USA?

The Chinese would be calling it an attack on their country itself and everything they stand for. I could see it.

But what is even more interesting about the situation is how fed up people are becoming with the United States. I am anti war, and I believe their is a much deeper underlying situation with all these anti-US protests than we are being told... but, I feel kind of bad for the diplomats. And diplomacy in general. Maybe it is time for the US to start pulling diplomats away from embassies in troubled areas. I almost can't believe I am saying this...

I think the US could benefit from a Chinese embargo. lots of jobs could e created. people have shown they will pay for an iPhone vs a cheap cellular competitor. or mp3 player for instance. there's lots of $50 mp3 players out there but peeps want to pay $200 for a iPod.

too bad our voice doesn't count. I bet we could craft a great country together.

I agree. what I'd like to see, is the owners and CEO's of corporations that have moved their production of goods to China, have to live over there...full time. It should be a requirement. Let's see how many would high tail it back to the States and reopen companies here.

Wishful thinking.......

Seems like being an US ambassador these days is not a very dignified job; being haunted around like a dog...
Where have all the good times gone?

Sometimes...just sometimes I wish somebody would push the button and send this world back to the stoneage.

Because then, we the survivors could focus on living again and not have to analyze every single BS incident for the simple fact that we have nothing better to do, or rather, we have the luxury to do.

This grandiose game of chess can sometimes become quite tedious on the mind, especially considering we can't truly be sure what is real, what is fabricated, what is honest, what is false...these topics and news stories are all pieces to a puzzle we are not sure what is supposed to become, and is a million pieces just to get a start.

I'm beginning to hope for the end, just so we can start over from this constant line of question and prediction process.

What is life and thought worth if we spend it on the obvious invalidity?

Where do you think the iPod is made?


Apple's iPods are made by mainly female workers who earn as little as £27 per month, according to a report in the Mail on Sunday yesterday.

The report, 'iPod City', isn't available online. It offers photographs taken from inside the factories that make Apple music players, situated in China and owned by Foxconn.


Inside Apple's iPod factories

They couldn't produce one in the US for $200.

A common misconception. The US does not have the infrastructure, the skills or the cheap labour to make such goods. If they where not made in China. They would be produced in another developing nation. If they where made in the US from start to finish you would not be able to afford to buy them...

We bombed their Embassy a couple years ago and China was kind enough to not push their nuclear button and kill us.

We've done far worse to China than they've done to us.

Do you think the Chinese forgot about what happened to their embassy 11 years ago, at the hands of NATO, more specifically the CIA?

Why isn't anyone asking why the ambassador is driving right through a protest area?

I mean it's like they put themselves into these positions on purpose just to ignite a reaction and then protract the result.

Your source says it was NATO. You make it sound like it was just the US randomly bombing a Chinese embassy. It was under Clinton too I might add, another DEMOCRAT POTUS.
