'allo, 'allo, 'allo . . . woz all this then?
Been watching ‘Der News’ . . .
A lot the footage of violent protest being ‘violently quelled’ by the Chinese in Tibet, is of protests taking place in Nepal and India, neither of which are controlled by the Chinese authorities. It appears Der Sheep-Herders™® don’t have the required footage of what they like to call ‘violent suppression of dissent’, to back up their claims. I’m not saying it’s not happening just that there doesn’t appear to be much evidence that it is happening to the extent Der Sheep-Herders™® would have us believe.

In fact, the picture shows security forces in Nepal, a neighboring country of China, RTL said in an online statement.
"The image was taken on March 17 in the capital city of Kathmandu, where Nepalese security forces were confronting demonstrators with batons," it said.
"We have accidentally created the impression that it is a scene of the unrest in Tibet with Chinese security forces involved. We regret this error," the statement added.
In a world where many phones now have cameras (even in Tibet they have mobile phones, definitely in the urban areas, which is where the rioting is taking place apparently) I’m astonished that Der Sheep-herders™®have not managed to obtain much footage of what they assure us is widespread.
But then these are the same people that deliberately lied to us about Saddam’s non-existent ‘Weapons of Mass Distraction’ so I don’t hold out much hope that what they are reporting reflects the reality of what is happening in Tibet. Constantly telling me about violence in Tibet while showing video of violence in Nepal and India (ie: violence in NOT-Tibet), makes me a little suspicious.
All in all this seems suspiciously similar to the various 'colour revolutions' the EU and the US are soooooo fond of, so long as they happen in countries whose governments are hostile to western Corporate interests. Were Europeans or US citizens to try the same tactics in their own countries I think the Western 'leaders' might take a very dim view of such 'democracy in action' at home.
A few days ago I blogged about these 'colour revolutions' and Globalisation, and their support from some decidedly murky proponents in an organisation known as The Albert Einstein Institute, See:Golden Straitjacket ? . . . more like Golden Steak-knife . . . . through the ribs
Absent from Friedman’s advertisement [of Globalisation] was any in-depth discussion of military action in order to cause ‘regime change’ in favour of ‘the herd’. Of Course military action is not the only weapon in the Pentagon/Globalists arsenal these days. Due to the work of one Gene Sharp, who is partly responsible for the so-called 'colour revolutions' we've heard so much of over the last few years, non-compliant governments can by removed by a combination of repetition of phrases such as 'The current Gov't are a bunch of election thieves' and organising student riots in favour of whatever political party offers the best deal for the predatory corporations.
