China is Evil

I don't like China. That probably could have gone without saying.

Businesspeople love China because they're a billion person market that for a long time has been closed to outside investment but in the past decade has been opening its doors to more and more outside interests. A billion people. Even if they are all poor, a small fraction of that market is a huge amount of money to be made. (Oh, and apparently China is basically propping up the American dollar. I don't know how that works exactly, but that's what I keep hearing.)

But China is still evil. They're communist and unashamed of it. They're also unashamed about the hypocrisy involved with allowing private companies in, but that's another issue.

Anyway, the Beijing Olympics for 2008 irritates my mounting disillusionment with the Olympic Games.

That said, I have to applaud this audacious criticism in the form of a cartoon.

That's exactly what I'm talking about.

Update: I am often astonished by some people's ability to completely miss the point. I was reading through the comments on that blog and some people apparently think that it is a criticism of China's death penalty which, apparently, involves a firing squad. One person in the comments even thought it had something to do with Japan.

Granted, there really isn't much in the cartoon that would tip you off to China's well-published human rights violations, but one has to wonder why these people need it pointed out to them.

Oh, that's getting linked.

China is not only evil, it is threatening. They are using the Maoist "economic zones" to build an industrial base so they can socialize it and then use it to conquer. This is all explicitly laid out in the party doctrines. It's like Soviet Russia all over again, if you know your history, but much worse because the Chinese are patient.

And just look at all of the military developments they are racing toward - anti-satellite warfare, torpedoes that bypass ballistic-missile defenses, computer hacker attacks... all of them are aimed at destroying the US military specifically.
