A one-time school project gone terribly, terribly wrong.

25 March 2009

Protesters? Nah--They're ... Extreme Fighters! Yeah, Yeah, That's It!

From the BBC:
China says video footage that purportedly shows Chinese security personnel violently beating Tibetans last year is "a lie".

The video apparently shows protesters being beaten with sticks, and kicked and choked by China's security forces.

The Tibetan government-in-exile says the footage shows China's "brutality".

But a Chinese government official said many of the images and voices in the video had been pieced together from different sources.
Shorter China: "Who says those images of our security forces beating people came from Tibet? Those images of our security forces beating people could have come from anywhere in China!"

Glad we've cleared that up.

Why does China simply lie bald-facedly to the world every single time they're caught out doing what they do?

Because there are so many people in China they don't value them. Not that my country has anything to brag about. After all, we don't torture, but waterboarding is OK.

You know those images are fake. Especially the one with all the fake blood under one of the protesters. Because if it was real, that would mean one of the extreme fighter bled out right there. (Tongue in cheek.)
