Posted on 07/28/2004 1:53:29 PM PDT by Tailgunner Joe
John Kerry has gained the support of the largest political party in the world. The official online news outlet for communist China, the People's Daily, endorsed the Senator from Massachusetts for President of the United States.
"Comparatively speaking, Kerry is noted for being friendly with China. He was once firmly against linking the most-favored-nation status to China with human rights," stated an article on the U.S. Presidential race posted by the official Chinese Central Communist Party news outlet. "From a long-term view, a Democratic administration, which stresses international cooperation, pursues 'multilateralism' and stands for a policy of contacts, will be better for both world peace and Sino-U.S. relations," noted the People's Daily article.
According to the communist Chinese, Kerry looks "squarely at China's position and influence in Asia and the world at large" and that the Democrat candidate opposes "containment of China and stand for contacts with the country."
"He said: We need cooperation with China and cannot push Sino-U.S. relationship back to the Cold War period," states the Chinese news site. According to the communist officials, Kerry supports the "one-China" principle and opposes "Taiwan independence."
"At a broadcasting debate held in January this year, he alarmingly expressed support for the solution of the Taiwan issue by the method of 'one country, two systems' which triggered strong repercussion. Although this maybe a remark made at the spur of the moment, it reflected that his attitude toward the Taiwan issue is different from that of Bush," noted the People's Daily.
"There are no 'neo-cons' in Kerry's campaign team, and most of his men can rationally approach the common interests and actual differences between the two countries," stated the report.
The report on the U.S. Presidential race appeared alongside another article that accused the Bush administration of disrupting world peace and seeking global dominance over "inferior" races and civilizations. "China has never done anything offensive to the United States; nor has it posed threats to America's security interest," claimed the official Chinese communist statement.
"However, what China has gained in return is U.S. bombing of the innocent Chinese Embassy in Yugoslavia, U.S. consistent sea and air reconnaissance in China's offshore areas and U.S. crash of a PLA airplane," noted the official statement.
"The U.S. government not only accuses China of its human right records every year; The Americans, like fanatic missionaries, are trying to impose American freedom, democracy and concept of value on the world's 'inferior' races and civilizations. This concept of towering above others is inevitably reflected in the American foreign policy."
Of course, the official PRC outlet failed to mention the fact that General Xiong Guankai, deputy chief of staff for PLA intelligence and second in command of all PLA forces threatened the U.S. with nuclear war.
"He wanted to turn Los Angles into radioactive glass," stated William Triplett, author of "Year of the Rat" and defense analyst. "He threatened the United States with nuclear weapons. He is not a nice guy."
The official PRC statement also neglected to quote Document 1999 65 from the PLA Office of the Central Military Commission. The document noted that the Chinese government is prepared to fight a nuclear war with the U.S. and has sent official messages to back up its threat.
"In comparison with the U.S. nuclear arsenal, our disadvantage is mainly numeric, while in real wars the qualitative gap will be reflected only as different requirements of strategic theory. In terms of deterrence, there is not any difference in practical value. So far we have built up the capability for the second and the third nuclear strikes and are fairly confident in fighting a nuclear war. The PCC has decided to pass through formal channels this message to the top leaders of the U.S.," states the official PLA document.
PRC Military Exercise
The recent official press release from the communist government comes at the same time China is conducting military exercises near Taiwan. Over 3,000 soldiers and civilians took part in a two-day weekend military exercise off the southeastern coast amid increasing tensions with Taiwan. Officers and soldiers of the People's Liberation Army (PLA), militia and paramilitary police participated in the drill, which concluded on Sunday in Zhangzhou, East China's Fujian Province.
The drill also included ships from the PLA Navy auxiliary marine civilian militia warships and the state owned shipping firm COSCO. The civilian ships performed simulated landing exercises and fired ground-to-air guided missiles.
"Receiving orders, the defense mobilization committee of the city of Zhangzhou rapidly mobilized and organized the local citizens to enter a state of war," stated the official PRC Xinhua news outlet.
While the Chinese did not name any future opponent, according to the official PRC outlet, "the PLA and the Taiwan army are now both conducting military exercises."
The Chinese military exercise focused on how to provide civilian and militia support to the PLA on the sea "when the war broke out." Lieutenant General Zhu Wenquan, commander of the Nanjing Military Region, and Lu Zhangong, governor and acting Communist Party chief of Fujian Province, attended the exercises.
"People's war is the heirloom of our Party and our army. People's war is able to help us win fights in the future. People's war can help us finish the great cause of reunification," Zhu said.
Red Info Warfare
Xinhua also reports that former Chinese President Jiang Zemin called on Chinese military forces to be equipped with information technology for the strategic goal of winning information warfare.
Jiang, who remains chairman of Central Military Commission (CMC), made the call in Beijing while meeting with delegates attending a military seminar. Current Chinese President Hu Jintao, and Defense Minister General Cao Gangchuan also attended the meeting.
"In recent years, the military forces have made remarkable progress," said Jiang, stressing that the People's Liberation Army is under the absolute leadership of the communist party.
Wow. Communist China endorses Kerry for President. Have they threatened to invade the USA if we re-elect Bush, or is that coming after the Dems convention?
Wow, I thought this was gonna be a joke
I seem to remember an Orion crew one of your 'skilled' pilots decided to treat less than well.
And I know Korea is called "The Forgotten War", but c'mon already...
I am not a really smart person , but the way I read this China seems to think electing Kerry is an open invitation for them to invade Taiwan. Kerry has stuck his neck out a mile if this is so,because he may in the future have to crap or get off the pot if China does decide to have only one China and invade the Formosan Island.
"People's War", eh? Works for them.
And yet they need to take "assault weapons" (and eventually ALL weapons) AWAY from the AMERICAN "People"?
Is there a connection here somewhere?
And how many of those rocket-firing "Commercial" Ships and fishing boats are coming in & out of US ports and cruising around right off of our coast, I wonder?
How many nukes could you lug / launch from one of those big container ships, I wonder?
Whose side will the PLA come down on when North Korea makes their jump, do you suppose? Might we expect things to get interesting in Taiwan about the same time?
Did "W" leave off a major component of the "Axis of Evil" from his list after 9/11/01?
Could that member of the axis be the Bush Family's "Most Favored Nation"?
The same one that funded a lot of Klintons' campaign in exchange for free access in and out of Los Alamos and LORAN?
How much of those million$ that Klintoon keeps raking in from his "speaking engangements" is just internationally laundered PLA payoff money?
He'll never be held accontable for selling our Country out to the "People's Republic", will he?
I'm just full of questions tonight.
Looks like old John is calling in all the markers from his post Vietnam days.
"Red China Endorses Kerry"
Rather than messing around with guidance technology like they got from Clinton, maybe they should just ask Kerry to ship them some ready-to-launch nukes, pre-targeted to American cities.
"Red China Endorses Kerry"
Well duh, if the red shoe fits John Ferrys foot.
Do bears poop in the woods?
Hehe . ..time to add the Chairman of Communist China into the picture . .
Good grief....I thought this headline was a joke! I sure hope this will be in big bold letters on the front page of every paper across the country. I know...dream on.
