China Strikes Back At US "Human Rights Violations": Slams PRISM Spying, Droning, Gun Violence, Homelessness And Unemployment

Tyler Durden's picture


Everyone knows that when it comes to abysmal human right records, China is the perpetual whipping boy - in most cases rightfully so - of the US whose own "pristine" record of human rights violations in recent years has also been exposed as mockery, courtesy almost exclusively of one NSA whistleblower. Of course, the US has been far more tacit in how it encroaches on the rights of its own civilians at home, if not so much abroad where US drone strikes have killed and continue to kill countless innocent civilians

Today, China decided to strike back at the US with its own report on US "human rights." In a nutshell, China launches a full frontal attack on the hypocrisy of the US, saying that "posing as "the world judge of human rights," the U.S. government "made arbitrary attacks and irresponsible remarks" on the human rights situation in almost 200 countries and regions again in its just-released reports, the report says. "However, the U.S. carefully concealed and avoided mentioning its own human rights problems," it adds. The report calls the U.S. tapping program, code-named PRISM, which exercises long-term and vast surveillance both at home and abroad, "a blatant violation of international law" and it "seriously infringes on human rights."

Hard to argue with that.

Full report from Xinhua:

China on Friday responded to the United States criticism and irresponsible remarks of its human rights situation by publishing its own report on the U.S. human rights issues.

The Human Rights Record of the United States in 2013 was released by the Information Office of China's State Council, or the Cabinet, in response to the Country Reports on Human Rights Practices for 2013 issued by the U.S. State Department on Thursday.

China said in the report that there were still serious human rights problems in the U.S in 2013, with the situation in many fields even deteriorating.

Posing as "the world judge of human rights," the U.S. government "made arbitrary attacks and irresponsible remarks" on the human rights situation in almost 200 countries and regions again in its just-released reports, the report says.

"However, the U.S. carefully concealed and avoided mentioning its own human rights problems," it adds.

The report calls the U.S. tapping program, code-named PRISM, which exercises long-term and vast surveillance both at home and abroad, "a blatant violation of international law" and it "seriously infringes on human rights."

The U.S. also faces rampant gun violence, according to the report. "In 2013, 137 people died in 30 mass killings, which caused four or more deaths each, in the U.S.."

The report also cites figures to show that frequent drone strikes by the U.S. in countries including Pakistan and Yemen have caused heavy civilian casualties.

The U.S. has carried out 376 drone strikes in Pakistan since 2004, causing deaths of up to 926 civilians, according to the report.

"The U.S. still faces grave employment situation with its unemployment rate remained high," the report says.

Rates of unemployment for the lowest-income families have topped 21 percent. The homeless population in the U.S. kept swelling and it had climbed 16 percent from 2011 to 2013, it added.

"There are also a large amount of child laborers in the agricultural sector in the U.S. and their physical and mental health was seriously harmed," the report says.

To date, the U.S. remains a country which has not ratified or participated in a series of core UN conventions on human rights, such as the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Convention on the Rights of the Child, and the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities, according to the report.

Back in the 'nam body count ratios were smiled upon and management cared. They cared deeply in the sandbox as well but preferred to keep that on the downlo, for their own private measurement of progress. Same deal with the dronings. That ratio requires a new metric, because it's almost a divide by zero.

"This country was founded on human rights abuses."

Playing devil's advocate (literally), you'd need to be very selective in your time frame in order for that statement to be mostly true.

Let's start with 1492 through 1838.  Not really a lot of abuse taking place, and if you disagree I'd like to read some supporting examples.  Trail of Tears is where the going got really bad.

Or does your time frame start specifically in 1781?  If so, then does it end in 1865?  A few decades later when the abuse of Native Americans ceased (at least ceased in terms of mass level and singular events)?    

When I hear libs and civil rights mouthpieces talk about "500 yrs of slavery in this country", they need to be reminded that "this country" (the United States of America) had slavery for 84 years (and parts of it for less than that).  Wanna bitch about 500 years?  Then go bitch to the Spanish, the English, and the French about the other 416 years.  Their pockets are less deep, their guilt is less cultivated, and they are more inclined to tell you to piss off with your 40 acres and a mule (or 40-oz and an Escalade).

P.S. Tiny Cuba had more slaves at one time than all of the United States did in all years combined.  Brazil might have accounted for 80% of the world's population of African slaves (and that includes the African-born who remained slaves on their own continent).  Nary a peep about that from human rights activists.

You think you have rights?




Can you own property?

Can you travel without papers?

Can you keep the results of your labor?

Ripped right from this page

You might be a slave if...

1. You hate when your alarm clock buzzes: If you don't wake up everyday with fantastic anticipation to be alive, you might be living under someone else's command. In fact, if you have to wake up at the same time every day, you're probably someone's slave.

2. You're forced to pay for causes you vehemently oppose: If you're a peaceful person but are forced to pay for wars done in your name, you might be a slave. Likewise, if you're forced to pay for corporate welfare of failed institutions while you struggle to stay healthy, you're surely a slave.

3. You expect someone else to take care of you: If someone other than yourself takes care of you, then you're likely beholden to them in countless ways. Be careful, you might be a slave if you demand that the government give you something other than freedom.

4. You must follow laws that your Master may break: If the rule of law only applies to you and your lowly peers, while the Masters get away with murder, you're clearly a slave in an unjust system.

5. You think mob rule is better than personal freedom: If you believe that majority rule is always better for you than free will, then you're most certainly a slave."Even if you are a minority of one, the truth is the truth." -- Mahatma Gandhi.

6. You condemn beliefs of others: If you're taught to hate the beliefs of others who have never harmed you, then your mind has been thoroughly confined by your Master's implanted beliefs.

7. You believe people should be caged for consuming a product: If you believe that it's okay to cage humans for consuming a product in private, then you probably love your enslavement.

8. You sit in traffic for more than one hour a day: If you waste over 360 hours a year (10,800 hours over a 30-year career, that's 450 days) commuting to a job you despise, your time and life belongs to someone else.

9. You're forced to wear a uniform: If you're forced into a dress code of any kind, including a suit and tie, you're a show clown with someone to impress in order to receive your daily bread.

10. You watch over 20 hours of TV per week: If you occupy your amazing mind in front of a glowing box in the room for 1,040 hours a year (43 days), then your unlimited creativity is impossibly chained to a lifetime of mindlessness.

Walter Williams has a nice take on this.  The populace would be less than happy if Big Bro required that you cook your poor or disabled or unemployed or underemployed neighbor's meals, teach their children, pay their heat bill, pay their cable bill, be their seamstress for them, etc etc, but thatsame populace is not so upset if their money is confiscated and given to someone else who performs those same 'duties'.  Go figure.  Next we'll outsource our outrage.

They ate up their human capital at a terrifying pace.

"ah cmon. When you see a local US municipality build a highway enclosing someone's house then maybe you can start drawing comparisons.

china is still backwards"

How's this for a DIRECT comparison.  I'm sure there are many examples like the one below, but this is is close to home so I know it intimately.

"A planned new exit ramp and road off U.S. 27 in northern Colerain Township cuts through John Langworthy’s front yard and wraps around his property, essentially plopping his rural nearly 100-year-old farm house into the middle of the highway.

Hamilton County officials plan to pay Langworthy for the front yard property of his East Miami River Road home that they will use, but he says that’s not enough. The county should buy his house because the ramp plan will destroy his family’s quality of life.

Jennifer Anglim Kreder, who teaches property law at Salmon P. Chase School of Law in Highland Heights, said it comes down to money.

“If there is a legitimate government purpose to take the property, it comes down to fair market value,” Kreder said. “But if the value of the rest of the house is impacted, the government has to pay for that, too.”

This guy's house was literally turned into an island in the middle of US Hwy 27 per the plans, and Little Brother didn't want to pay for his home (the value of which was nil at that point except for the scrap value).  The local gov't said we're gonna screw you because we can.

"Government is the problem, not the solution."  Regurgitate much?  Sounds like a nice election punchline.

Actually, if put our thinking caps on (for those who have them), we'll find that it is Government being "compromised" and re-routed from its founding principles that is the problem.  And the cause of the 're-routing' and compromise is... Politicians, Voters and Financiers. 

Each is doing (or not doing) their part:  The financiers back their candidates, and the public is willfully incompetent in their voting.  I say "willfully incompetent", because most are too damn lazy or 'comfortable' to be properly informed, and most are too damn lazy or scared to make a fuss and hold their elected and unelected leaders accountable.

As Kirk has said before: "Democracy is not for the uninformed, the lazy, the dumb or gullible, the cowardly or the disorganized".

And here's a new one: "The voters can find the problem and the solution in one place:  The mirror."

As long as the economy was ok and China was our favored trading partner the U.S. was largely silent about their human rights abuses. China is right we have our own abuses so it's more than barking and the U.S. has recently ramped up it's criticism of China citing things the U.S. itself does.

You bring up a good point though about the Bear .  In the U.S. as in China/Russia/Iran, etc. the leaders really see the people as useless eaters (Kissinger) so we are all expendable in the leaders eyes. Who is the 4th Beast in Daniel 7:23 - could it be the NWO?

Print the shit out of the Yuan? You realize that the Yuan is pegged to the USD? That means that every USD that gets printed by the FED increases the supply of Yuan. It's called exporting inflation.

So you are right, they are printing the shit out of the Yuan, but let's face it, they've got help there. The whole mess really is a global conspiracy.

Anyways, as someone is fond of saying ( I forget who), long sharecropping and a loyal tribe.

More embarrassment for PAx Americana and its leaders.  The Emperor of West without his clothes.

Not only does the US not observe its own avowed values in its Machiavellian plays all over the world since the CIA was created and "cold war" became its Crusader Cry; but it also considers itself not bound to the rules of the Nuremberg trial which inspired the Hague international war crimes court; a convention to which the US IS NOT A SIGNATORY, making itself de facto above the law that it applies post Dayton agreement to Milosevic and consorts.

Now that the Snowden file has exposed the US to being the worst propagator of Stasi type snooping it always decried;  especially and icnonically when Reagan cried "Bring that wall down Mr Gorbatchev" on his visit to Berlin.

Yes; after Agent Orange, and Napalm, after low radiation bombing in Iraq and selling Anthrax to spear carrier Saddam (who had to be eliminated 'cos he bucked Pax Americana subsequently), we now have the NSA virtual wall that encircles the world and "Yes we scan" becomes the Mantra of USA uber-alles.

Very embarrassing to have that hanging around your neck like a hangman's noose when you wear your Nobel to the Black Tie receptions of the world arena.

@ oak, appreciate yr links but please add up some info about them :)

Some just have brief contents so can be posted here in its entirety.


I'll say that the two new Chinese national days are the long overdue ones! Yet better late than never...


China ratifies national days on anti-Japanese victory, Nanjing Massacre |


China's top legislature on Thursday approved two new national days, one to mark victory in the anti-Japanese war and the other to commemorate Nanjing Massacre victims and all those killed during Japanese aggression against China.

September 3 is ratified as "Victory Day of the Chinese People's War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression" and December 13 the "National Memorial Day for Nanjing Massacre Victims," according to two decisions passed by the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress (NPC), whose bi-monthly session ended on Thursday.

The country will hold national memorial activities on September 3 and December 13 every year, according to the decisions.



China wants explanation of Japan nuclear stockpile |


A Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman said on Friday that China still wants Japan to explain its nuclear stockpile to the world.

Spokesman Qin Gang was commenting on media reports that Japan will comply with a US request to return plutonium provided for research during the Cold War, but refuses to clarify the issue of highly enriched and weapons-grade uranium.

Qin said that highly enriched and weapons-grade uranium, as well as plutonium are sensitive nuclear materials. Any supply-demand imbalance of such sensitive materials is a nuclear security and proliferation risk.

China maintains that the Japanese government should answer the question of how much uranium of concern there is in Japan, the government should then explain the use and supply-demand situation.

"We continue to urge the Japanese government to take a responsible attitude and explain itself to international community," Qin said.


China says no deal on sovereignty and territory |


China said on Friday that it will never trade off its sovereignty and territory.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang made the comment while dismissing a Philippines media report that by promising to provide certain benefits, China had tried to persuade the Philippines not to submit the South China Sea dispute to the international court of justice.

"The report is totally groundless," Qin said at a daily news briefing.

The Chinese government's determination to safeguard territorial sovereignty and maritime interests is unswerving, Qin said.

He added that China firmly opposes and will never accept the Philippines filing the South China Sea dispute for international arbitration.

China expects to solve the dispute bilaterally.

Even without Snowden's leaks, the US "human rights" record was an abomination. It's hard to say which of the particular crimes against humanity is the worst. Indefinite (permanent) detention without charge or trial is pretty significant, but so are flying murder robots, use of depleted uranium, and the constant destabilization black ops going on in practically every country on the planet.

A Timeline of CIA Atrocities

By Steve Kangas


The following timeline describes just a few of the hundreds of atrocities and crimes committed by the CIA.

CIA operations follow the same recurring script. First, American business interests abroad are threatened by a popular or democratically elected leader. The people support their leader because he intends to conduct land reform, strengthen unions, redistribute wealth, nationalize foreign-owned industry, and regulate business to protect workers, consumers and the environment. So, on behalf of American business, and often with their help, the CIA mobilizes the opposition. First it identifies right-wing groups within the country (usually the military), and offers them a deal: "We'll put you in power if you maintain a favorable business climate for us." The Agency then hires, trains and works with them to overthrow the existing government (usually a democracy). It uses every trick in the book: propaganda, stuffed ballot boxes, purchased elections, extortion, blackmail, sexual intrigue, false stories about opponents in the local media, infiltration and disruption of opposing political parties, kidnapping, beating, torture, intimidation, economic sabotage, death squads and even assassination. These efforts culminate in a military coup, which installs a right-wing dictator. The CIA trains the dictator’s security apparatus to crack down on the traditional enemies of big business, using interrogation, torture and murder. The victims are said to be "communists," but almost always they are just peasants, liberals, moderates, labor union leaders, political opponents and advocates of free speech and democracy. Widespread human rights abuses follow.

This scenario has been repeated so many times that the CIA actually teaches it in a special school, the notorious "School of the Americas." (It opened in Panama but later moved to Fort Benning, Georgia.) Critics have nicknamed it the "School of the Dictators" and "School of the Assassins." Here, the CIA trains Latin American military officers how to conduct coups, including the use of interrogation, torture and murder.


It's worth of one's reading!

I went outside of my wonderful abode here in the US, took in a deep cleansing breath of fresh spring air, and then shouted "FUCK YOU, OBAMA!" at the top of my lungs...

I didn't choke on smog, no cops arrived to haul me away to a camp and/or harvest my organs for profit... yeah, pretty much nothing but fresh air and some stress relief and no harm done...

replace Obama with Mao and try that in China, bitchez... fucking China has been living in a glass house for decades, they should put their stones down and take care of their own problems, starting with their recent fetish for "glorious bloodshed for progress"

Neo-Feudalismis the umbrela policy for all the -ism's. I don't think mankind has evolved to make true Capitalism work. No one seems to want to compete in an open market where prices are determined by markets free of manipulation. Unfortunately, mankind has this animal brain that wants to dominate and control other people, and that is not expected to change.
