White House Demands China "Account For" Tiananmen Square Victims

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Just as the cyber-spat is off the headlines for a day... and no one from Treasury has discussed the need for the Renminbi to strengthen... The White House drops another well-timed China shot, calling on Chinese authorities to account for those killed, detained or missing in connection with the military assault on pro-democracy demonstrators at Beijing’s Tiananmen Square 25 years ago. Diplomatically, this could be a little awkward as China forbids public acknowledgment of the anniversary in the state-run media and censors the Internet to wipe away both direct and indirect references to the crackdown.

 

As LA Times reports,

The tally of dead, injured, jailed, executed and missing from the army action has been contentious for 25 years. Chinese authorities initially said the death toll was 23 students and 300 soldiers, but other estimates have ranged into the thousands. The Tiananmen Mothers advocacy group has painstakingly identified 202 victims by name.

 

A 2005 study in the Stanford Journal of East Asian Affairs concluded that at least 3,000 deaths in Beijing was a likely tally based on available sources.

 

“The United States will always speak out in support of the basic freedoms the protestors at Tiananmen Square sought, including the freedom of expression, the freedom of the press, and the freedoms of association and assembly,” the White House statement said. “These freedoms -- which are enshrined in the U.S. Constitution, the Chinese Constitution, and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights -- are values the United States champions around the world.”

 

China forbids public acknowledgment of the anniversary in the state-run media and censors the Internet to wipe away both direct and indirect references to the crackdown. Chinese leaders routinely reject criticism of the government’s human rights record by U.S. officials, calling any such reports hypocritical and offering their own counter-assessments of human rights shortcomings in the United States.

 

“The American people and government applaud China’s extraordinary social and economic progress over the past three decades and value good relations with the Chinese people and government,” the White House added Wednesday. “Even as we continue our cooperation on areas of common interest, the United States will continue to be clear about our differences, and urge the Chinese government to guarantee the universal rights and fundamental freedoms that are the birthright of all Chinese citizens.”

We await China's response... perhaps a Bergdahl reference?

I think I speak for China when I say "Fuck you, Obama."  Or maybe I'm just speaking for myself.  Who knows.  It's about nap time anyway.  Another killer-diller day of huge gains in the market for no reason.

I still haven't forgotten your epic anti-Chinaman rant.

I bought a stainless steel shower hose today. The ends screwed onto the shower head and outlet, but were smooth cylinders and had nothing to grab hold of to tighten. Consequently, it leaked.

It was, of course, made in China. I thought of you!

I've seen people here defend the Chinaman and his engineering; but in my experience, they (both the Chinaman and his loyal defenders) are clueless. I know they produce 13 Quadrillion engineers every year but I have never seen a people so lacking in engineering nous and basic common sense.

PS - before you decry me as a racist, I do like their food, their (traditional) medicine, their martial arts, and their women. So there.

It's not about where it's made, it's about why.

Things are made down to a price, not to up to a quality.

Things are made to fail so you have to buy a new one.

Keep the treadmill going.

I always try to avoid cheap crap, because mostly, it's expensive in the long run.

Good tools last a lifetime.

As another example: The goal of a Mars mission by NASA is unobtainable based on a CBO report. I guess you can't do hard science at the same time you are telling the muzzies how awesome they are.

Mars? Shit I would be happy if we could lob a guy/gal into LEO.  Or gasp, travel back to the moon 45 years after we first proved we could do so.  It would be nice to see them drive around in that moon car, play a little golf, jump, fall down, take some fantastic pictures and bring back moon rocks.  We could have another national orgasm and that would unleash that "pent up consumer demand."

He should also explain why our intelligence agencies killed MLK and RFK. And did we ever account for the missing $2.3 trillion that Rumsfeld testified to the day before 911? I know all those records were destroyed during the 911 missile attack at the pentagon, but still, there there are other ways to recontruct these records and show what happened to the money.

Washington better shut the fuck up and account for 9/11, Afghanistan, Iraq, Ukraine just to name a few. Or to take it to a domestic level, Waco, Ruby Ridge etc, etc just to name a few.  Either way Washington can fuck off.

Now that Asia's allied with Russia good commies become bad commies.

When Iran had democratic government it wanted to nationalize Anglo-Persian petrolium company (better known as BP), that was bad, so CIA went in and replaced it with a good military dictatorship.

With Ukraine right sector fighting Russia, bad Nazi's are now good Nazi's.

Well, at least our dumb president is still our good'ole dumb president. No changes there.

Obama apparently is under the common mis-belief that a panda is a big cuddly raccoon and not the 350 pound member of the Ursidae family. 

Pro-tip:  you can only poke a panda in the eye so many times before it responds.

But, then, perhaps this is the plan.

And the hypocite-of-all-hypocrites US government is going to given an accounting of all the hundreds of thousands (and probably over one million) of Iraqis and Afghans it murdered on false pretenses when?  And now 160,000 murdered in Syria in a US-orchestrated and -supported war.

Well maybe the Chinese should compensate the jews for the Holohoax. Everyone else has. What did they do to stop it? The Maoists and Nationalists let themselves be manipulated by the japs to fight each other  -when they could have united and marched straight to berlin to stop Hitler. I think that based on that alone, they should share in the blame.

One might ask the USA to account for 2 million Vietnamese? Or several hundred thousand Iraqi civilians? Hundreds of drone attack civilians? Now this is just a quick off the cuff list, we all know about Argentina's and Chile's disappeared thousands, gone in CIA coups, families still wait. Or Central America, CIA death squads, and god knows how many dead. Now the Right Sector is shooting up city streets with ground attack aircraft on direct orders from NATO.

China has plenty of guilt, plenty of it. But it smacks of a joke for Obama to demand accountability from anyone. It sells perfectly here in the USA, people buy into it and support Obama's freedom spreading. Even much of Europe believes it, but many others are catching on to how the game is played.

Ukraine is going down as the perfect example of do as I say, not as I do. In the last two days, 8,000 women and children have poured over the borders into Rostov-on-Don and Crimea, the stories they tell are not pretty, especially for Obama and his allied coup leaders in Kiev. Obama's orders to destroy the oppostion to Kiev's coup leaders is now driving people from their homes. Obama is innocent, this is Putin's fault. That is not selling quite as well as NATO thinks.

Or maybe Obama should account for his drone murders.
"It was Yemen in December 2009 that a cruise missile launched from a nuclear submarine murdered 41 civilians in a small hamlet, 21 of them children and 12 were women."

If freedom were measured by how many citizens were kept jailed, it would be noted that the US imprisons many more of its citizens than does China, despite the great disparity in population size.

Typical pot calling the kettle black, probably zealousy as our puppet masters seem intent on taking their 'center of the world' over o Asia for the NWO startup... aka GPS-global police state... and it does seem that a return to feudalism is in the works, with or without Mother Nature's expected return in the spring. That said, compare our words with our actions, say in Syria'  where I noticed 'Anthony' posted this today from http://landdestroyer.blogspot.com/2012/05/us-brookings-wants-to-bleed-sy...

More recently, Brookings has published "Middle East Memo #21: Saving Syria: Assessing Options for Regime Change (.pdf)," which at face value betrays the narrative the West has attempted to maintain - that humanitarian concerns, not regime change, drives Western intervention in Syria. Not only does the Brookings memo admit the US would like to avoid a settlement or ceasefire that leaves Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in power, but continues on by stating the UN mission can be used as cover to establish "safe havens" and "humanitarian corridors" from which further "coercive action" can be dealt:

"An alternative is for diplomatic efforts to focus first on how to end the violence and how to gain humanitarian access, as is being done under Annan’s leadership. This may lead to the creation of safe-havens and humanitarian corridors, which would have to be backed by limited military power. This would, of course, fall short of U.S. goals for Syria and could preserve Asad in power. From that starting point, however, it is possible that a broad coalition with the appropriate international mandate could add further coercive action to its efforts." -page 4, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.

On pages 8 and 9, the memo states:

"The United States might still arm the opposition even knowing they will probably never  have  sufficient power, on their own, to dislodge the Asad network. Washington might choose to do so simply in the belief that at least providing an oppressed people with some ability to resist their oppressors is better than doing nothing at all, even if the support provided has little chance of turning defeat into victory. Alternatively, the United States might calculate that it is still worthwhile to pin down the Asad regime and bleed it, keeping a regional adversary weak, while avoiding the costs of direct intervention."  -pages 8-9, Assessing Options for Regime Change, Brookings Institution.
In other words, the US is seeking to perpetuate endless bloodshed simply to weaken Syria's geopolitical influence throughout the region - most obviously running contra to any concept of "humanitarianism" or "international law," and certainly, purposefully causing more death and carnage, not preventing it. Surely this signed confession seems worthy of airing before the UN Security Council, especially in light of recent revelations that the US and Gulf States are already arming Syria's opposition with this specific perpetuated bloodshed in mind.

The memo continues by articulating various combinations of military intervention and support to be provided to the so-called "Free Syrian Army (FSA)" - this with full knowledge that the FSA has been conducting documented widespread atrocities of their own, having direct ties to the Muslim Brotherhood, and conducting a terrorist bombing campaign targeting civilian populations carried out by militants who admit to having fought as Al Qaeda in Iraq against US troops. Again, it appears that Brookings has conspired to violate a myriad of both national and international laws, in particular, USC § 2339B: Providing material support or resources to designated foreign terrorist organizations.
