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.

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.

You're on to one of the main tricks of the CIA's Wikipedia - The biased and misleading citations

Sometimes the citations even say the opposite of what is on Wikipedia but they know most people don't check ... and people who complain about CIA-sponsored lies are ignored ... you try to 'edit' the CIA disinfo and the lies pop right back ... try it a few times and they block your IP from changing Wiki

They 'select' the citations footnotes to back the CIA-Mossad positions ... they know people will believe most any lie appearing to be backed by 'footnotes'

The main trick is that 90% of Wiki is fake neutral because it is topics they don't care about

They even talk about past crimes of CIA and Mossad ... it helps terrorise people, and adds credibility to Wikimedia lies about current CIA - Mossad targets of dis-info

Wiki provides full anonymity for Mossad, CIA, NSA and related agents planting false information there ... the ruling Wikimedia hive politburo has been shown to be a criminal group who send e-mails from CIA contractor e-mail addresses.

The fraudster and murderer Jimmy Wales, posing as 'founder' of Wikipedia is so high up and important with Mossad he is one of the deluxe invitees at birthday parties of the President of Israel

In the 1990s the mafia pornography king Jimmy Wales, having proved his criminal ruthlessness, his willingness to harm children and tell endless lies and destroy innocent people, Jimbo Wales was 'persuaded' to opt for a life of future wealth, committing international fraud and murder and spreading hoaxes while posing as the head of the US-CIA's Wikipedia ...

The CIA loves how they even get dissidents and ZeroHedge readers, to link to Wiki and thus help spread their CIA and Mossad hoaxes

chinamen see American spies everywhere..Japan is just a running dog of Imperialist America. the bond wars are coming no not james bond, but US gov bonds ..why not bring the head running dog down without  a shooting war?

if china was planning this any old issue will be the spark, but china would protect itself with gold buying before it happens..hmmmm

Oh yea! The Chinese people are STARTING to pick up on that. I was wondering how long it would take before they got sick of being lumbered with our debt and crappy dollars.

That's what I was wondering.  If they dump it on the market, who's going to buy it, and at what price?  And if they dump it all, they will crash the market and destroy their own holdings.  They are in a paper jail cell of their own making. 


There seems to be a lot of squawking on this page with very little knowledge of how it all works.

They buy bonds. Then the Bernank prints like there's not tomorrow, making them worth less and less. Grrrrr. THEN we have the nerve to tell them how to run their country. That's the issue. I'm just sayin they have a right to be pissed off.

If you hear squaking, it is from your own mouth.  Why do you think China has been madly and mostly secretly accumulating gold over the last few years?  What do you think will happen to the value of their gold when treasuries become practically worthless?

China will divert the world's purchasing power from dollars into gold AFTER they have most of the gold.  From these moves, they are likely very close to being done.

Further, the first to dump gets the most wealth for their paper.  This won't be nearly as much as those who already have gold, but it will be a significant effect, allowing them to preserve a significant percentage of the value of their "investments".

Extort a payoff from the Federal Reserve then have the price of gold manipulated down and use the payoff to buy real assets.

But how exactly do they "extort a payoff" without crashing the bond market and making their holdings worthless?  The Gothic General pretty much summed it up.  It's M.A.D. of the 21st century.

An unscheduled war with 2.25 million screaming Chinese?  You are right, but I can imagine the Chinese will not loose on the investment they have made without a heavy toll, if they are burned.  So all roads lead to war or paid off with assets to kick the can until the war has been scripted and reparations to the "winners" can be put in a contract.  Hostel takeovers are a bitch to manage.

You know, land grabbers can oppose other land grabbers, but never on the ground of opposing land grabbing.

The more Chinese learn about 'americans', the more they adopt 'americanism', the more they will know that land grabbing was a founding act for many 'american' nations.

Tibet is peanuts compared to land grabbing as performed by more experienced 'americans' and it is not going to be possible to convince 'american' chinese they do not have to do more to prove themselves as 'americans'...

My working hypothesis on the lexicon of AnAnonymousAsshole:

"Americans" = Everyone that AnAnonymousAsshole hates, for whatever reason

"Americanism" = Everything that AnAnonymousAsshole hates, for whatever reason


I challenge the Chinese troll, or anyone, to find any evidence in the vast mass of his gibberish which refutes this hypothesis.

You remind me of an insane mother who drowned her own children then demanded that her neighbors "return" her children to her.

Regulation destroyed our manufacturing base.  China lifted their regulations and they built up their own manufacturing base, something that was more or less coincident with the fall of US manufacturing (Japan and Korea picked up the first part of that fall).  They can no more "return" "our" factories than the madwoman's neighbors can "return" "her" children.  And they wouldn't want to anyways, as she would simply drown them again, because the bitch is insane.
