Reply #46 To Mr. Spielberg

If you are concerned about the Darfur region you should apply your Worldly possesions to the cause renounce violence of all kinds and proceed to live the rest of your life with those you protect, I can not tell you to do this as the restraints are for Saints and since unlike Ghandi you show no spirit to actually move people other than leaving a letter your answer is that you will be denied.

Exit Spielberg, stage left

Mr. Spielberg is not the first, and will not be the last one, to try to make China responsible for the Darfur crisis. The ones who orchestrate this miserable farce don’t want to accept China’s incredible success and try to mislead the public with the power of their propaganda machine, in which Mr. Spielberg is but one tool. I think he is not well informed about China’s policies not only in Darfur (see China's decisive role in the Six Party Talks), otherwise he wouldn't have taken this step which is more embarrassing for him than for China.

We may be sure more political blackmails and ridiculous demands will come as the Olympics approaching.

Newspaper admits mistake over IOC chief signing Darfur letter

LONDON (AFP) - A newspaper admitted Thursday having mistakenly included Olympic chief Jacques Rogge's name in a list of signatories of a letter urging China to do more to end the conflict in Darfur.

The Independent made the admission shortly after the International Olympic Committee (IOC) denied that Rogge had signed the appeal, as reported in the paper.

"It was an error that his signature was included," news editor Julian Coman told AFP, explaining that the IOC official's name was wrongly included in the list of signatories due to an editing error.

His name was included in the first edition of the newspaper, but withdrawn from subsequent editions.

The letter was originally released to international media in Britain on February 12 by the campaigning group Crisis Action, calling on China to pressure Khartoum on atrocities committed in Darfur, as attention turns to the Olympic Games this summer in Beijing.

At the time, the letter's 80 signatories included eight Nobel peace prize winners, several Olympians, politicians and celebrities, but not Rogge.

In the Independent, however Rogge's name appeared at the end of the list of signatories as: "Jacques Rogge, International Olympic Committee".

"It's completely false," Rogge's spokeswoman Emmanuelle Moreau told AFP earlier from the IOC headquarters in Lausanne, Switzerland.

China speaks out to Spielberg

BEIJING (AFP) - China expressed regret Thursday over US film-maker Steven Spielberg's decision to cut ties with the Beijing Olympics, saying it was unacceptable to link politics to the sporting extravaganza.


Responding to what has become a public relations disaster ahead of the Games, authorities also defended China's involvement with Sudan, which led to Spielberg pulling out as an artistic adviser over the Darfur crisis.

"We feel regret about his remarks," foreign ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao said, after Spielberg called on Tuesday for China to do more to urge the Sudanese government to resolve the problems in Darfur.

"Some people are attempting to link the Darfur issue with Chinese government policies in Sudan, even with the organisation of the Olympics," Liu said without mentioning the US producer by name.

"If they don't know the Chinese policy, I can understand. But if they have got some objectives, especially political objectives, we cannot accept that."

True, Some people in the West, the Independent, hates China and chinese ppl

"it's (not only) completely false", by adding the name of Olympic chief Jacques Rogge's name in the black-list, it is done with political objectives.   

The Independent, the British newspaper, like Spielberg, wants to defame China and Chinese people.
