Li cannot sue anyone for defamation. There has been none.

They are now saying Chinese toys contain ecstasy-like drug.  Look at this Guardian piece:



This is going to continue if Li Chan-jiang does not start suing Mattel for defamation.

Hire a U.S ...



Germany's leading anti China propaganda magazine, 'DER SPIEGEL'  reported this yesterday as well. This news magazine reported that 3 kids in Australia and 2 in the US fell ill already. Everywhere contradictory stories. The whole affair seems to have been fabricated. Strange enough after only 3 hours the story disappeared from the 'Spiegel online' headlines. What can be said for sure is that most Western media are looking for the smallest mistakes and then blow them out of proportion. They try to convince their readers that everything Chinese is bad, evil and hazardous. Their aim is to stop China's ascent and to damage the reputation of the country. Their hatred knows no limits. There will be more phony stories coming up before the Beijing Olympic games. Just watch and see.

North,

Actually, it's quite true that China's pollution has had global impact; there's nothing false here.

Boys, stop foaming at the mouth

You really can't be taken seriously if you can't admit when to call a foul ball a foul ball. The complete inability to be even a bit objective is why you are destined to remain you.

1. Mattel retracted and said that they should have been more specific in the exact paint to be used. (As if a toy manufacturer should be using lead paint anyway).

2. The Bindeez/Aquadots manufacturers changed the plastic used. Why?
Oh...HUGE difference in the price per ton. Look it up.

The toys were supposed to use 1,5-pentanediol, a nontoxic compound found in glue, but instead contained the harmful 1,4-butanediol, which is widely used in cleaners and plastics.

The Food and Drug Administration in 1999 declared the chemical a Class I Health Hazard, meaning it can cause life-threatening harm.

Both chemicals are manufactured in China and elsewhere, including by major multinational companies, and are also marketed over the Internet.

It's not clear why 1,4-butanediol was substituted. However, there is a significant difference in price between the two chemicals. The Chinese online trading platform ChemNet China lists the price of 1,4 butanediol at between about $1,350-$2,800 per metric ton, while the price for 1,5-pentanediol is about $9,700 per metric ton.

There's your answer.
