The title of a recently released Al-Jazeera article is “Tiananmen provokes fresh China-US SPAT” (Web-site/URL: http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia-pacific/2013/06/20136245838554707.html). There are TWO things to note right off thebat. First CHINA is “provoked” by MANY things and secondly, “spat” = ARGUMENT which is an ANGRY reaction.
“US call to fully account for those killed, detained or missing in (the) 1989 crackdown draws ANGRY response from Beijing” AS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). The CHINESE “government” is “angry” about MANY things..
“The Chinese government has ACCUSED the United States of “ political prejudice ” and “ignoring facts” for its recent comments on Tiananmen Square, Xinhua news agency has reported”, as if CHINA DOESN’T “ignore facts” and as if there ISN’T “political prejudice” in CHINA. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. On top of this, “accused” is also the latest example of “Blaming and criticizing” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u-AJviZ8Itk).
“The US State Department had on Friday (May 31, 2013) called on the Chinese government to FULLY account for those killed, detained or missing in the 1989 military crackdown on protesters in Tiananmen Square”. Again, of course, as we know all too well, this WON’T happen because there is still NO “accountability” in China.
“But in response, Hong Lei, China’s foreign ministry spokesperson,on Saturday (June 1, 2013) urged the US ”to DISCARD POLITICAL PREJUDICE and CORRECTLY TREAT China’s DEVELOPMENT (?)” There are TWO things to note here. First, CHINA is calling on the US ”to discard political prejudice?” THIS IS A JOKE, because “political prejudice” is everywhere in China. On top of this, China HASN’T ”developed” AT ALL as far as HUMAN RIGHTS and FREEDOM OF SPEECH are concerned. The ridiculous INTERNET CENSORSHIP is a clear example of this, with many SOCIAL NETWORKING sites banned (Web-site/URL: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_websites_blocked_in_the_People’s_Republic_of_China) and people can still be thrown into “Black Jails” and held without charge INDEFINITELY (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NsN4-A1G5zc).
According to Xinhua, citing Hong, “A CLEAR CONCLUSION has already been made concerning THE POLITICAL TURMOIL that happened in the late 1980s” and this “clear conclusion” is that the government DID NOTHING WRONG/HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH this “political turmoil?” Again, of course, as we know, NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH.
”State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki had said (that) the US was remembering the “TRAGIC loss of innocent lives” ahead of the 24th anniversary on June 4 of the VIOLENT CRUSHING of student-led pro-democracy protests”. THIS WAS “tragic” for every country except CHINA and other countries with weak or no human rights (e.g. SYRIA & NORTH KOREA). On top of this “violent crush” is the latest/another example of the “force and pain technique” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). “We renew our call for China to PROTECT THE UNIVERSAL RIGHTS OF ALL CITIZENS, RELEASE THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN WRONGFULLY DETAINED, PROSECUTED, INCARCERATED, FORCIBLY DISAPPEARED, or PLACED UNDER HOUSE ARREST and END THE ONGOING HARASSMENT OF HUMAN RIGHTS ACTIVISTS AND THEIR FAMILIES“. Again, this WON’T happen because “human rights” in China is still either EXTREMELY WEAK or (more likely) NON-EXISTENT.
“But the Chinese government said the US “releases similar statements year after year, IGNORING FACTS and making groundless accusations againstthe Chinese government,” which is a “RUDE INTERFERENCE in China’s INTERNAL affairs,” Xinhua reported”. Again every human rights violation (e.g. a parent’s right to beat a child in public) seems to be “internal”, which, again, is A DISGRACE.
Finally, “The Chinese government has never fully disclosed what happened when the military crushed the protests, which it branded a “counterrevolutionary riot”. EVERYTHING that people in China do seems to be “counterrevolutionary”. Secondly, once again, “crushed” is the latest/yet another example of the “force and pain technique” (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI). On top of this, once again Xinhua is the CHINESE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT’S MOUTHPIECE, SPITTING OUT GOVERNMENT PROPAGANDA.
To conclude, “Tiananmen provokes fresh China-US SPAT“ AS EXPECTED (Web-site/URL: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NgnAY_eXYbI) and it WON’T be the last “spat” because China is also still furious at the United States for the United States’ support of JAPAN in the SENKAKU Islands dispute and that will surely flare up again in the not-too-distant future
