China Is Very Loud About Helping Peasants/Stopping America

By Elaine Meinel Supkis

The Chinese peasants made life difficult for the Chinese rulers. It is very simple. They didn't quietly leave their pitiful farms and surrender, they fought back, hard. People were killed. The government snapped and growled. Now they grovel. One can be imprisoned in America for suggesting anyone do what Chinese peasants did. It is called "insurrection". But it worked, didn't it?

From Xinhua net:
Chinese President Hu Jintao Tuesday asked provincial and ministerial heads to attach importance and take concrete actions to boost rural development.

"Building a socialist new countryside is a major historic mission set by our Party," Hu Jintao, who is also the general secretary of the Communist Party of China (CPC) Central Committee, told a seminar on building a socialist new countryside.

He asked all CPC members and the whole nation to work jointly to make the drive "a project for the people" that truly benefits the vast number of farmers.

Members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee Wu Bangguo, Wen Jiabao, Jia Qinglin, Wu Guanzheng, Li Changchun and Luo Gan also attended the opening ceremony chaired by Zeng Qinghong, a members of the Standing Committee of the Political Bureau of the CPC Central Committee, vice Chinese president and president of the Party School of the CPC Central Committee.

Hu said that in building a well-off society in an all-round way in China, the most arduous tasks are in the countryside. To accelerate China's modernization, it is imperative to properly handle the relationships of industry and agriculture and urban and rural areas.
Maybe they will act like Republicans and weasle out of this. Maybe they won't. I know some Chinese history and I am betting they are sweating bullets (stay away from Cheney! I warned you all!) concerning the rising wave of rage building deep inside China. This can overturn them in a flash and they know it. So they are trying to co-opt this power by assauging it which is appropriate, it is better than our government which is slapping us in the face while giving Chinese money to Iraqi or Iranian corrupt cronies in the name of democracy! Gack.

Speaking of which, our bankers, the Chinese, are giving our dictator his latest marching orders and he better obey or a certain dam filled with a trillion American debts will suddenly collapse. From Xinhua net:
China has called for the international community to remain sober-minded, patient and flexible when trying to resolve the Iran nuclear issue, said the Foreign Ministry Spokesman Liu Jianchao at a regular news conference here Tuesday.

China encourages all parties to do more to increase trust and avoid any actions that may worsen the issue, Liu said.

He told reporters that China is concerned with the latest development of the Iran nuclear issue. There are still enough room to resolve the issue under the framework of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) and the international community should not abandon diplomatic efforts, he said.

Regarding the scheduled nuclear talks between Russia and Iran on Feb. 16, Liu said China hopes the talks will be held on time and achieve positive outcome.
In other words: North Korea. Remember that place? Oooh, we were so going to fix it our way! And quess who is control of that place now?


And more: we have zero control, we pissed the Chinese off who, for a small fee, arranged not only a peace treaty for us but a trade deal. Now it is a no-go with us on the outside.From Xinhua net:
"We concede that China is running a relatively big trade surplus with the United States, but they shouldn't politicize the issue," Cheng, vice-chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress, or parliament, told a China-U.S. business forum.

China revalued the yuan by 2.1 percent in July, scrapped the currency's decade-old peg against the dollar and set it free to float within tightly managed bands. To Washington's frustration, the yuan has since risen by less than 0.8 percent.

Foreign Ministry spokesman Liu Jianchao reaffirmed China's determination to continue with reform of the yuan -- code for eventually letting it float more freely -- but said Beijing would dictate the pace of change.

"China will push forward the reform according to the development of the situation and the principle that is most favorable to the international economy and China's economy," he told a regular news briefing.
Note, not for the American economy but for China's economy. Namely, we can't ask China to be Mexico for us. They are lining up with Venezuela which we attack verbally nonstop on every venue. I recently read a paper here that called the democratically elected popular government in Venezuela, "a regime" as if it were like the USA which has really no proper way of voting for President anymore, not even the fiction of one man, one vote.

I just heard Barnake say that China doesn't hold enough fiscal resources in dollars to hurt us if we decide to commit suicide and get involved in a big financial dust-up with them. He is, like everyone involved in running America off the cliff, insane. He also claims our enconomy is just great and doing great. This is also totally insane. Well, the Chinese just might laugh to death. Seems the Mulims are laughing to death.

And if we are doing so fine and dandy, why are all the programs helping peasants being cut here? What gives, guys? Either things are hunky dory and there is zero reason to cut my son's school loans or we are a sinking ship. Which is it?
