East Timor Calls Chinese Warships “Gucci Knockoffs” Then Buys them

Posted by wtdevflnt on June 23, 2010

Well this story has been causing quite a buzz in the netshpere here in China. Many posters are commenting on how foolish it is for China to brag about a country using their horrible weapons, or at least accusing them of being “knock offs” of legitimate western weapons.

The chicoms have since shut down the posting area for that article. No one can say a thing about it. That is the scary thing in China, the government has total and absolute control and will do anything so they do not lose face or appear stupid. My question is why they run the article to begin with.

I should be careful, the chicoms are probably plotting my eviction as we speak.
