Beijing officials on business will now have simple buffets, rather than banquets.

Chinese all you can eat buffet?

The should introduce a cheap, highly bioavailable form of cocaine to the unwanted ethnic groups.  That seems to work well.

Doesn't matter what you call the stuff, somebody there will still go peepee in it.

Good, that needs to happen. A civil war in China would be horrible.

Well given China's past I imagine this will be used as cover to settle some political scores.

This is just the BBC's ongoing effort to play down the evils of communism. They admit some level of fault on the part of Chinese govt, but understate it every time. Consistency is the name of the game here, not hyperbole. BBC is state funded and they have plenty of time to indoctrinate viewers/readers bit by bit. They rarely go far enough to enable people to prove that they are being partial - when that does happen they wail and screech about how hard it is to be impartial, hoping to drown out the truth with noise.

While this article doesn't say China is a bowl of cherries, you do not feel you are reading about a country that still controls the speech of its inhabitants, and their information and much of their lives. A country that flattens entire villages on a whim of some fat government has never been elected. That still has police who do pretty much whatever they want with young women they find on the streets on the pretext that her papers weren't in order. That still has not apologised for Tiannenmen square. That helps keep North Korea afloat. That allows companies like Apple to treat it's people like slaves. And that is ruthlessly exploiting Africa and Africans for resources, most notably in Sudan, where they funded a genocide between 2002 and 2008.

In fact the BBC rarely report any of this. Same goes for North Korea (in another article, BBC suggested NK is going to get better under the new leader. They offer no basis for this suggestion, and there is no basis for it.). BBC relentlessly push a kind of socialism disguised as cultural wisdom day in day out, and it does affect people. BBC is like the opposite of the Daily Mail: DM exaggerates evils it opposes in order to mislead people, while BBC underplays evils it is OK with in order to mislead people.

You and I should not be OK with a mandatedly impartial state broadcaster that allows the genocide of hundreds of thousands of people to pass in the 21st century, only referring to it in passing as a "crisis" and never mentioning which government is funding it: China.

2.  a system of or group living in which there is no private property

3.  a stage of society in Marxist theory transitional between capitalism and communism and distinguished by unequal distribution of goods and pay according to work done


Now don't you feel smarter?

Is this the same Xi Jinping whose family is reportedly worth "hundreds of millions" and whose daughter studies at Harvard?

Was the non sequitur second sentence of this headline meant for a different article? There's nothing in this article about the U.S. or ethnic tensions in either nation.

If the sentence was meant as a joke of some sort, I still don't see how it's supposed to work. It's really out of left field.

Just checked your profile, here's one more to add:

In China, 40 million forcibly starved to death under Mao's "great leap forward".
In America, nothing remotely resembling that

Your efforts to portray some sort of moral equivalence are spurious nonsense. Get real.
