in terms of foreign policy, maybe its because the world knows china "protects" the khartoum regime in sudan that brutally killed 200,000 civilians and left 2.5 million homeless since 2003... Darfur Genocide anyone?
Of course, china protects sudan's govt.. because they have the biggest oil concession in Darfur.. bought/co-op it legally for nearly a decade. Before Chevron owns them and couldn't find anything. And why is this important ? you would ask.
Well, the whole mess, started in 2002, when the Rebels suddenly got well armed, trained and air supplied from Chad.. attacked the Sudanese Govt soldiers.. and won almost every battle. According to the latest UN investigation (which is truly slanted ), but they also said that the Rebels are just as guilty of crime as the Janjaweed, and that the Sudanese govt is guilty of not been able to protect it's people. what kind of charges is that ? Chad is obviously a US puppet regime, as Uganda, Ethiopia and Kenya is... For a recently oil rich but poor country such as Sudan, to try to resist a superpower proxy Regome change.. is crasy. If it wasn't for the support from China, Sudan would already been regime Changed.. and new pro-US puppet Govt would likely viod the current oil concession and gives it to US oil Firm. Of course, it is expected China to support the khartoum govt to protect her investment.
I suggest you read thru this recent declassified US Embassy (Beijing) Cable....It "attempts to set the record straight" about the events of the night of June 3-4. Contrary to earlier reports in the western media, no one was killed in the square itself.
and in terms of domestic policy, we are all familiar with the low records in terms of human rights issues
for example, june 4 of this year will be the 18th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre where hundreds if not thousands lost their lives on the evening of june 3rd and the morning of june 4th
my question is, in few months to come, will there be a public display of condolences by the ccp?
will families of those who lost their loved ones 18 years ago be allowed to gather and grieve their loss... light candles?
the chinese nation will not be able to come together in any public way to commemorate the lives that were lost on june 4. even to discuss such a thing is to risk detention and imprisonment
If anything, it should not be called 'Tiananmen Massacre', because most of the deaths associated with the crackdown occurred on Changan Avenue and other streets surrounding the square, rather than on Tiananmen Square itself. The crowd wasn't exactly.. peaceful or are angels.
