This week President Bush gave a speech at the UN. He declared that the world’s dictatorships should give their people freedom. He mentioned many countries. However, he never once mentioned Communist China.
Communist China is one of the most oppressive dictatorships in the world. It is, in fact, just as brutal and oppressive as Myanmar. If the people of China took to the streets in protest, as they did in Tiananmen Square in 1989, where 3000 civilians were killed by their own Communist Chinese army.
Why did Bush not list China? Because the big business interests in the US would not want you to know just how brutal China’s dictatorship is. Every time you buy something made in China, think about the people you are oppressing in that brutal dictatorship.
As always, your comments are welcome.
