Another Slap in China's Face


Japan says no to Chinese torch guards

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japan will not allow the squad of Chinese flame guards to intervene with the Beijing Olympic torch's progress when it arrives in a Japanese city this month, the national police head was quoted as saying on Friday.


"We should not violate the principle that the Japanese police will firmly maintain security," Kyodo news agency quoted Shinya Izumi, head of the National Public Safety Commission, as saying.


...

Australian Prime Minister Kevin Rudd has said Australia, not China, would be the one to provide security for the flame when it comes to his country. (More...)



This unprecedented "flame protection squad" consisting of some 70 members of China's People's Armed Police, is described as "a phalanx of large and physically fit Chinese men in blue-and-white track suits...trotting besides the torch along its ambitious global torch route and turned off the flame several times in Paris earlier this week".


So this is the way China answers to the global protests toward its poor human rights record and its violent crackdown on Tibet. Money has been poured into this Chinese Olympic propaganda but the world is not fooled. Japan and Australia have stood up to China's ridiculous scheme of "flame protection squad". This is the start of a global movement in accord against China's violation of human rights: the violent crackdown on Tibet, the brutal persecution of Fa lung Gong members, and the bloody slaughter of students on the Tienanmen Square. China government has blood all over their hands and the world is demanding China to stop!

So this blog is no longer about Nepal any more?

It seems odd that on the day that the elections are held in Nepal -Blogdai is writing about Tibet. Is this because of the embarrassing truth that your prediction that the CA election wouldn't happen has proved to be resoundingly incorrect?

Seems like Blogdai has given up on Nepal and has moved onto a new cause -disappointing because it is just another nail in this blog's coffin.

What Slap!

The west completely failed.
The anti-chinese protest has united all chinese in the world and all the people in china.

Who cares what the world think. This is probably the first time in history that Chinese all over the world are more united.

By being biased in the reporting of the tibet issue the foreign media has created a sense of anti-chinese sentiment hurting all chinese in the world. They now feel that they are being aggressed.

Note that I am an overseas chinese. Like millions of us in the west, we are still racially abused and do not enjoy same employment rights as people in our country of adoption.

United Chinese? Hardly. maybe they're getting to gether to circle the wagons, but united is not the word I'd use.

big time for the chinese. People are "uniting" to realize that their state run media hasn't given them all the correct answers and simply aping the hyper-defensive party line has not served to stem the growing tide of world condemnation.

Blogdai you have completely lost the plot.

Not only are you jumping on the western media bandwagon; you have changed direction at precisely the time visitors to your blog would be expecting you to be commenting on the Nepali elections.

Anon 11:59pm is right. The media reporting on the issue is completely biased towards the Dalai Lama. They love nothing more than a David vs Goliath clash. The fact is, there are two sides to the story and you really ought to know better than to be sucked into the political fashions of the day.

If you are, as you seem to claim -Nepali -why the fuck are you ignoring the most important event off the last 10 years? Is it because you would have to admit that your predictions were incorrect?

Indeed you have underestimated the Maoist power base. Now, they look like they are on their way to forming the first elected government for a decade.

I fully support the Tibetan issue as I believe it to be an occupied country but why the sudden change of direction?

I often enjoyed reading your critical analysis of the Nepali situation but the last few months have seen you descend further and further into dogmatic posturing and mediocre analysis.

You need to get back to what you do best and not be so fucking whimsical or just give up.

And June? Get the hell out of here with your righteous bull shit -makes me feel like vomiting.

The President of Nepal.

Anon at 6:53 am, in case you made your way back from vomiting (I wouldn't miss a bit if you didn't). I will explain once and for all. June is fully responsible for her comments. June's opinions are not a reflection of blogdai's opinions in anyway. Her comments being righteous bullsh*t or not, you are entitled to your opinion, but she doesn't give a rat's behind about it. She posts whenever she wants to and whatever she feels like saying. And your fully supportive position of the Tibetan issue doesn't seem to come through with your telling me to get the h*ll out. Let's see, this is blogdai's house, I am a named guest and you are an anonymous visitor. It is obvious you should get the h*ll out, not me.

And no, Anon at 11:59 pm, Chinese are not united. Chinese are humiliated in horror. Chinese are watching in disbelief how the CCTV reports, "The world is so happy to see our torch being relayed...look at the Frech people...they are so happy for the event that they put out the flame of the torch..." and the video shows the chaos. So exactly how stupid do you think Chinese are? The Chinese I know are outraged. The Chinese I know want a better life for all Chinese, overseas or within China. You complain about being discriminated against with your employment, could it be your academic ability? Your English speaking and writing ability? Your biased, bitter attitude toward life? You are so discriminated against by the Westerners, why are you here whining? How about going back to the wonderful China and watch the government controlled CCTV, read the official propaganda from XinHua News Agency, and enjoy no discrimination at all since you are a Han Chinese, not a Tibetan?

You know all the answers. You know the Tienanmen Square slaughter. You know the Fa Lung Gong persecution. You are still barking for that bogus government. Shame on you! Shame on you for having a better life, and not lending a helping hand, to your own people, and to your brother, the Tibetans. It is Chinese like you that's in denial and that's holding back the possible democratic progress of China. You are doing the Chinese people and the Chinese history a dis-service by pushing the government's propaganda. How do you sleep at night with your hypocracy?

June, who cares what you think?

I was addressing my comments to Blogdai and not Blogbahini. The fact that you address yourself in the third persion goes to show your level of pretentious bull shit.

This blog has descended into utter shite now.

RIP Blogdai

Anon at 3:09 pm, who cares what you think? I address myself in the third person because you seemed to have difficulty deciphering who is who and I was being helpful. Your telling blogdai to RIP in your most recent comment again shows that you are barking at the wrong tree. Read the postings, did blogdai say a word yet since your last insult? And if you had been a reader as you claimed, you should know that blogdai already said before that he couldn't really RIP if you guys continued posting these RIP messages to try to get his attention.

Well it's being fun, Anon. June is going back to posting whenever she wants to on whatever topic she likes to discuss. Maybe even on the Tibetan issue that you "fully support" yet yelling at June to get out of. You are a contradictory nameless faceless poster. You have had my attention but sorry no more. What you really need is to RIP yourself as you suggested blogdai to do.

June,

Have I introduced you to our mob of "hungry little boys?" Lots of repetitive junk with no real sense of direction.

Thankfully, real people with real human rights issues are giving us all an example of courage under fire. I applaud your Tibetan coverage. Keep it up.

How important is this Nepali election? More important than Tibetans fighting for their lives and culture? So important that none of you cared a lick about holding election for the last 10 years, right? Oh, I see, you were waiting for powerful international pressure before you could assert your right to independent self determination through elections, eh?

Ah censorship!!!

My post deleted for upsetting the egos of a couple of chums.

Wonderfully Chinese of you!

Your comment was deleted because it was repetitive and off message. How many time can you say goodbye? It's always "RIP" blogdai, yet, here you are again...

I'll give you my full support on this item, it'll give you something constructive to do. If you truly feel this blog has "gone downhill," get a bunch of friends together and alert all the blogs. Tell them that "blogdai censors inane repetitive comments, shame!" Tell them I will personally attest to the fact that, without your grand intellect, this blog has really suffered and gone down hill. Better yet, form an anti-blogdai blog so everyone can join in! I bet you get 10,000 hits per month, like me!

Truthfully, I only get 2 hits per day and those are from my mother and sister. I swear!

Start a petition. Make sure everyone knows I'm a bully, elitist, rightist, leftist, populist Monarchist. I am anti Nepal and pro North Korea. Once, I did not pay a fair price for a taxi cab in Kathmandu if that helps.



blogdai is trying to save your life here. You do nothing but repeat yourself and offer un-sourced critical opinions. If you actually do these things, I'll give you a column of your own on this blog so you can repeat yourself as much as you want! I'll even give you 1000 rupees.

Lots of things are happening in the world and in your own backyard, but really, between you and me, isn't it easier and more fun to just be self-centered and badger others?

Anyway, it's time for you take over, OK? blogdai is dead and gone, RIP blogdai your column is going down hill.

"blogdai is trying to save your life here."

How? By making us aware of the dangers of interesting blogs?
