Tyler Durden's picture


The US may be celebrating the HFT-rigged, Fed-manipulated S&P500 hitting Goldman's year end target of 1900 8 months early, but China has other concerns. Such as this photo series, courtesy of NYT's Chris Buckley, showing police in Shenzhen in full riot gear, training for what many say is inevitable: a working-class insurrection, or as calls, it "emergency disposal operations."

Chinese SWAT:  "Wait, so, we are working FOR the gov't, trying to SUPPRESS dissent and reform?"

Reminds one of the Vietcong stories, working for the US in the day, but by night...

The Chinese should visit the USSA and really learn how to suppress insurrections. Our DHS has plenty of experience abusing working class people.

Say you’ve got, oh,, 50 or 100 million cops and military against 1.200 million or so PO’d people many of which are relatives…

Chicoms should understand that they kind of let the freedom cat out of the bag a while ago.

The riot squads aren't the only ones being trained there. The secret police, playing the role of "insurrects", are receiving training as agents provocateurs.

I think at this point we can certainly say with certainity that all the world IS a stage TFS.

Everything else is illusion and projected desires, individual and collective.

Most of those guys behind the plexiglass have families at home.  When the crowd decides to take their issues to these guys' wives and kids, the plexiglass SWAT mob will disperse in a flash.

Maybe Chincom needs to see the movie "world war Z". 1.2 billions hungry zombies can not be stopped.
Beside how long can the formation last, a few hours at most, while the hungry zombie can loiter around for days, swarming gorging on human flesh. And what will these cops do when they see their loved ones being attacked right in front of them, break formation.
Anyway, Tibet will soon be freed.

i was with you until you said tibet will be freed. 


no, when push comes to shove the communist party with arm all the han chinese and unleash them to exterminate the rest of the tibetan natives. 

tibetan culture and written and eventually spoken language will be wiped off the face of the earth. 

why is this?


have you looked at a map? tibet is one of the most strategically significant set of mountain fortresses in the world. 

once you conquer tibet, you don't give it up. it is the high ground of ALL CENTRAL ASIA. 

yes yes, please tell me about how air superiority and space superiority have changed historical warfare strategy. 

i know this. but still, when you own the best fortress, one caontianing vast water and mineral resources , on the border of the soon to be most populated country on the planet (india) ------then you don't just 'give it up'. 


the dali lama so much as admits to being and agent of the west. prior to world war 2 the british were trying to make inroads into influenceing tibet and succesfully negotiated some treaties for control of land. 

the very existence of disputed 'areas' between india and china north or bangladesh have their roots in these british line drawing efforts. 


i'm not 'defending china' per se. just pointing out that your perceptions of their behavior are totally framed by the prio colonialist attitudes towards those areas. 


china and inda have proven themselves self sufficient in so far as they have nukes and have stable governments. they do not care for dealing with hypocrytical western empire cultural judgement. they don't need to pay it any attention anymore for much of the yolk of western domination has been lifted, though not all.

You know that 1st picture has the "attackers" wielding clubs with beards. They are also a whole lot whiter than the typical Chinese. Are these mercs, CIA or Russian secret service?

I'm sure they won't break formation when a russian cocktail lands on top of that formation.

From that earlier mob slaughter of those other cops, this is not going to end well.

These types of forces work well for people who want to hurl rocks and burn tires.  Typical riot stuff.

Not sure how well it will work out when the riot police are the target.

Or, the rioters could construct some kind of chariot to ram the the police.  I don't know where they would find horses since I think they sold most of them to Europe as hamburger.  Maybe technology will provide an alternative very heavy fast moving vehicle that can deal with stone age shield walls.

The old 'Scythed Chariot' should work nicely.

Of course, explosives and cannon were invented to break up tight formations like that, never mind vehicles.

Much clear understanding on resources available the local with diligence yields perceptively.

Telephone pole lashed to trailer with wheels give motion and steer prosperously. Crowd push hardly the vigour. Could have charm.

Why confront the riot police at all when sabotage, assassination and t e r r o r i s m against your foes would be be safer for the insurrectionists and probably more effective? Don't do what they want and expect and have prepared for; work like the resistance in France, in small, independent and completely separate cells, where no one knows the identities of those in the other cells or how many cells there are so that the capture of one cannot bring down all. Let the cops know you know where they live, where their children go to school, where their wives shop, what bar they like to frequent.

"All right then, bananas. We haven't done them, have we? Right. Bananas. How to defend yourself against a man armed with a banana. Now you, come at me with this banana. Catch! Now, it's quite simple to defend yourself against a man armed with a banana. First of all you force him to drop the banana; then, second, you eat the banana, thus disarming him. You have now rendered him 'elpless."

Training for 'Working Class Insurrection'  ?


WTF ?  


Wasnt 'Mao's Revolution' supposed to be for the proletariat ?

and Wasn't the American Revolution supposed to be for We The People ?


It seems that people around the planet have been robbed & lied to.

'isms' are bullshit.  Theft is real.

Yes, and the guys in yellow are his fine feathered finks.

The yellow feathering is a bit too fine (one could even call it sparse) because somehow they were all molting that day.

THX, those at the top don't know squat, if you'll permit an abusive paraphrasing of Hayek. Those 2 billion rounds of hollow point (not cheaper training rounds) are not going to fire themselves. Some percentage of police and military would follow such orders but not nearly enough.
