BTW, what your people called the Chinese investment in Africa again? New colonialism? Shall we say "a liar never trust others"?

Thats it. Don't assume. Its just a statement and nothing else.



it just seems disgusting to me to think that some "force" is moving plates in the earth in order to kill over 15,000 people because they have a crappy government. your suggestion connects dots between events -- akin to people suggesting that Hurricane Katrina hits New Orleans, and we all know that the most "sinful" town in the south is NoLA -- is genuinely offensive.

it seems to me that all the tornadoes that hit the US are concentrated around the Bible Belt. perhaps Allah is punishing the infidels?

are you honestly defending the rights of the Junta to deny aid to their citizens, causing tens of thousands more to die, because they are worried that foreign aid is a threat to their sovereignty?

Of course, there is also a 1 in 100,000 chance that a passing star will disturb our orbit around the Sun before that ever happens and eject us into the oblivion of space. Perhaps a good moment for that will be when the Andromeda Galaxy merges with the Milky Way Galaxy in 3 billion years?


You just fucking blew my mind.

I was planning on staying alive for the next 5 billion years.

My plans have now changed.

This is about countless numbers of people buried or missing. The discussion about "values" can probably wait.

Except besides discuss the "value", I doubt there would be anything that your guys would like to do. So I guess it's okay to use the value discussion to pass some boring time.

Different country, in Germany one doesn't have to wait for the government of the day to approve of public demonstrations.

Please go to check the law in Germany before you post.

If you want to do the demonstration all by yourself, you probably don't have to apply, but for more than hundred, you need to get approved by both the government, and the police.

The demonstration hold in Berlin, got approved by the government, but the police forced them to change the route, to stay away from the parliament building.

Do you feel that the state would ban a protest on the basis of the political message?

Would they stop a demonstration if it wasn't as nationalistic as they like?

Could the same be said in mainland China? How far does freedom of assembly and freedom of speech extend?

What really interesting is the pro-Tibet demonstration got passed.

Of course they were not promoting nationalistic political message, if you believe.
