No, there was no coup in China this past week, as several news sites claimed there had been. Chinese authorities arrested six people and silenced numerous websites for reporting the rumor that military vehicles were seen on the streets of Beijing. —ARK

BBC:

The State Internet Information Office said the rumours had a “very bad influence on the public”.

The office said 16 websites had been closed down for carrying the posts.

A spokesman for the office told state news agency Xinhua that a number of other people had been “admonished or educated”.

No.  Wrong again.  And another sly little method to make a personal attack against me.

You don’t even know the basic difference between different parts of English speech, do you?

Moreover, you have never posted ANYTHING on this site that was NOT a personal attack.

Don’t whine and pule and use obscene language when you get some of your own dumdum bullets back.  That’s just pathetic.

so, by your criteria,  .....I could say that you are a goat-fucker and it would be a
“description of your behavior ... not a personal attack.”


you can take your idiot claim of puppetry and ask the site admin about it…just
more of your goat-humping lunacy.

1.  Nosepicking is a description of your behavior here—it is not a personal attack.

2.  Sock-puppet is a euphemism for folks like you who violate internet site policy by posting under more than one nombre de guerra on the same threads.

Stop being oversenstive—if you don’t like being busted, don’t post here.

you’re doing.

actually, balkas, the American people long considered themselves friends and
champions of the Chinese and our opposition to China started and ended with
Mao and the excesses of the Communist revolution.

these days our relations with China aren’t much worse then when we were worried
that Japan was going to supplant us as the world’s dominant economic power.

hetero,
no, i don’t know what chinese communist party is trying to do anent
the structures of governance or society.
but it is telling that all or most countries that are ruled by THE
TWENTY PERCENT are very mad at chinese one percent [or is it
TWENTY PERCENT?] which may be supported in whatever it wants to
achieve by probably only 70% of chinese citizens.
u may recall that i said that because 99%  of americans so strongly
supported own ONE OR TWENTY PERCENT, it was horribly easy, until
very recently, for american ogrish IT to rule own ‘less-valued’ people.
however, the IT got overly rambunctious, hotty, careless, stupid since
bush came to power [or poor guy thought he did—or i wonder what
the hell he was thinking-doing, anyway] and america is changing, but
cannot tell whether for worse or better
and for whom better and for whom worse.

balkas—- if you are laboring under the idea that the
Chinese are working toward a classless, egalitarian
society, then you’re headed for a rude awakening.

china now is the game to go hunting for. for if chinese are building a
communist society for the 99%—a la the banksters-army echelons-
judiciary-congress-MSM-et al is building for self, is it any wonder, then,
that that unholy alliance for evil doing against the best people among us
[sorry, i, myself, am not in that select group; i am often a basket case]
quite antsy about building communism for over 6.8 billion lazy,
uneducated, beerguzzling, pornloving peasants.
also sprechen alle weisen. heilige sieg zu lenin und mao!!
btw, ficken sie neulich was gutes?

Apparently it is coup rumor week.

China, then Syria.

because Chavez hopped a plane for La Habana for another round of radiation treatment, I suppose that means coup rumors regarding Venezuela….

Meanwhile, here in Mexico they are working up to a coup—of the same type as Fuijmori’s autocoup in Peru.  We are overdue I guess, as the last one was in February of 1913, and as usual was coordinated by the US Embassy.

The same US Embassy that ran the 2006 Mexican PAN party presidential campaign and lost, but imposed the spurious demented dwarf boozer anyway.  More than 75,000 dead Mexicans, but lots of bucks to gringo arms folks and lots of money to launder for Bank of America and its compinches.

Amazing how all those billions of mexican cartel dollars can’t keep those incompetent gringo banks solvent—they have to whine for more of YOUR tax dollars.

Voting is for suckers.
