Toxic China, Molten Iron Death and Nukes

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 6, 2011

China had another boo boo where molten lead spilled from its cauldron- how the fk does this happen? Eleven Chinese lost their lives in the accident. China will not care, however as it means one fewer person to fight for a space on the subway with.
My question is if they cannot eve make iron then how the fk can we trust them with nuclear materials?

China Upset with Burma Respecting the Wishes of Her People- Burma Stops Dam

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 6, 2011

China is testy that Burma is actually doing the unthinkable- respecting the wishes of her people. As such, China is talking to the Burmese government about the fact that they have suspended work on a dam project with the Chinese. According to this site, the leader of Burma was bowing to the will of the people, a thing the Chinese government cannot fathom.
Apparently China does not care about the ecology.

Alright. Chinese construction techniques are a tad bit different than my home country of America’s was of building things. Roads, sidewalks, etc are all flat and level. Well, in China they are to.. kind of. So what happens is that mostly they have sink holes of uneven surfaces that then pool water when it rains. Which when a car drives through it nails people with water.

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 6, 2011

From the author of Death By China

China’s Looming Crisis

Posted by w_thames_the_d on October 6, 2011

Chinese businessmen and those doing business in China have had it too goo for too long. they’ve grown accustomed to wasting too much , squandering too much on expenses like KTV hookers , money and bribes. The result is that they do not know how to cut costs, other than salaries in their sweatshops. Too bad for them that the party is over as they are learning in Wenzhou where people are going broke by the tons and no relief is forthcoming…
from here:
“As the eurozone debt crisis makes its presence known worldwide, a potential “usurious loan crisis,” created by businesspeople in Wenzhou taking on more private debts than they can repay, could spin out of control at any moment. Deciding who to save first has begun to test the priorities of China’s authorities.
Lin Bai, an economist with the international trade and economic cooperation institute under China’s Ministry of Commerce, wrote in an article on Chinavalue.net that the answer to the question was obvious: A US$10 billion rescue fund could help Wenzhou restore its suspended capital chain”
