Chinese Protesters Chant "Down With US Imperialists", Attack Car Of US Ambassador In Beijing

Tyler Durden's picture


Anti-Japan protests may have quieted down on the day after the anniversary of Japan's invasion of China (which is not saying much: after disappearing for two weeks, perhaps in some Las Vegas strip club, the Chinese leader-in-waiting Xi Jinping denounced Japan's decision to buy disputed islands "as a farce" on Wednesday and said Tokyo should "rein in its behavior"), but that does not mean anything has been resolved, and the Chinese 1000 boat armada is still supposedly on its way to the Senkakus. Elsewhere, the US foreign department may have to promptly find an anti-Buddhist hate tape made in the US, because otherwise the attack of the US ambassador Gary Locke's car in Beijing may have to be explained using good old fashioned simmering hatred and anti-American sentiment without an actual inflamatory event. LA Times reports: "The car of the U.S. ambassador to China was surrounded by a small group of demonstrators on Tuesday, who damaged the vehicle and briefly prevented it from entering the U.S. Embassy compound in Beijing. A YouTube video of the incident showed the protesters chanting slogans such as “down with the U.S. imperialists” and, in an apparent reference to the Chinese government’s purchase of U.S. government debt, “return the money!

The five-minute video shows a black car approaching the embassy and attempting to turn into the gate. As the demonstrators surrounded the vehicle, several dozen Chinese police and uniformed guards rushed to the scene. Several water bottles were thrown at the car and one man could be seen banging on the hood of the vehicle.


The security forces quickly surrounded the automobile and pushed the demonstrators away from it.


A State Department spokesperson said Ambassador Gary Locke’s car sustained minor damage but the ambassador was unharmed. The spokesperson said the U.S. had “registered our concern” with China’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


The U.S. Embassy is located near the Japanese Embassy, which has been targeted by thousands of Chinese protesters in recent days voicing complaints over the Japanese government’s move to purchase islands in the East China Sea that are also claimed by China.

Finally, it appears someone gets it:

In an apparent reference to that dispute and the United States’ security treaty with Japan, some of the demonstrators chanted: “The U.S. government is the mastermind.”

Yesterday China already suggested dumping Japanese bonds as retaliation, following our earlier hypothetical of just who is more likely to dump US paper, should America pick the wrong side to support: recall that both China and Japan now hold over $1.1 trillion in US debt. Things are increasingly looking like China may be it, further explaining why the BOJ .

There is a rumor based on a Lindsey Williams interview (dont laugh) that China started selling oil for yuan on Sept. 6

It's interesting that the dollar starting taking a shit right after that, and before QE-Infinity announcement

Does anyone know if there is an official source for this information?

Very interesting read of the tea leaves, Truth Hunter.

I know this, my caucasian sister and brother-in-law are moving back stateside from Shanghai today and, before leaving, they made a similar comment.

The "economic miracle" that was China during the past decade may be on the verge of collapsing from within, so what better an action in the moment than to solidify power and simultaneously take pent up frustration out of the equation by agressively moving on a long-standing enemy...the empire of Japan !

WW3 may not be too far off, should China also tie itself to Iran to ensure energy delivery in times of turbulence.

Time to dust off the Monroe Doctrine again and give NAFTA some teeth. The US neighbors in Mexico would appreciate that... people whine about the Chinese taking US jobs... when NAFTA was enacted, however, jobs actually did a transfer from US into Mexico (which was the whole point... stabilize Mexico with better employment opportunities). They didn't end up in China until the Chinese undercut Mexican labor rates. The nanosecond the US observed that happening is when the trade barriers should have gone up.

Even so, all I see above is the usual list of wanna-be pillow biters and their typical passive-aggressive economic approach to US world dominance. Even with all the mistakes made NAFTA and Eurozone are the biggest producers in the world. That's not going to change anytime soon and those arrangements are wholly owned by the petro-dollar.

not so sure those maquiladoras just over the imaginary line between nationstates were about stabilizing Mexico's employment opportunities

given that as soon as more Special Economic Zones were opened up in nationstates that allowed for even "cheaper labour" costs, those "multi-national" corporations bailed repeatedly - camping in exotic Asian locales, resulting in FoxxConn, and enforced volunteer student internships for no pay, months of fourteen hour, seven day weeks for zero pay, just to get those i-gadgets into amrka's dirty little paws. . .

by the way, those Special Economic Zones are up for consideration in the Homeland now, ask Idaho, Ohio and Michigan all about the details. . .

The only reason they would use Yuan to buy oil is so they can buy from Iran directly.  Due to sanctions they need to be sneeky about it, using printed yuan or as the rumor goes, gold.

To be honest, it is foolish.  They have $1T in a vault, why would they not continue to buy oil with that money?  What good does a stacks of money in vault have?  Geithner must have a compromising pic of the premier. Or, China is desperate to keepp the dollar "strong" so they can continue to ship crap and keep their "economy" running.

Every time nations move to sell commodities in currencies other than USD, bad things happen. Does anyone else see a pattern here? Iraq first and then Libya were quickly villified after announcing they would sell oil for gold. On Sept. 6 China announced that the foundation was in place to bypass the US dollar and conduct trade in Yuan. Suddenly China is the big, bad villain in a dispute over some obscure islands. To me, this whole island thing smells.

Death to Tyler?

If he was a real person, with a real agenda (tagline is waiting for everyone to die - mission statement?) who actually held real assets do you still think anyone could kill him?

If Tyler could be killed do you not think all that he exposes, criticizes and makes fun of would be behind such an effort?

So please tell me how this spinelessjellyfish of what is being tagged as a human being is not the same source of leeching dishonest money that he publishes about.

Used to think that several contributors write under the name Tyler Durden. Now I figure that Tyler is just one real person. You can't find two people writing in the same style. The whole paragraph consists of one sentence and 20 clauses and sub-clauses. Was he writing COBOL code for shearson Lehman brothers before he became a trader?
