Whenever I read a story about China, I really feel the need to post. China is an enemy to both the United States and to mankind. I just read a report that you can read here in which there is evidence to abuse of Chinese citizens.
To give you a quick summary, China is outgrowing its power output so to try and relieve the burden, they intend on damming the Yangtze river. This of course will cost over 1.2 million citizens their homes. Now, the government has promised to pay a fair value to each resident but the government is coming through on their end of the deal. Well, most in China know to not speak out against the government but of course, some do. In this case, Fu Xiancai, a resident near the Yangtze spoke out to a German news outlet and was immediately taken into custody. Shortly after his release, he was beaten by 'assailants' who actually paralyzed him.
This obviously isn't the first accusation of assault. China has been known for silencing reporters, farmers, and any 'dissidents.' The worst part is, our country isn't acting out. Bush has recently renewed* China with their status of MFN (most favored nation) in regards to all trading relations. This must be severed and we must implore ethical treatments of citizens. Not only is China abusing its citizens, its building an arsenal to silence anyone who speaks out against these atrocities.
