    Because China is like Pakistan, which the military will assume the top position when it is necessary.

    For example, if US nukes China, but Hu Jintao refuses to nuke back because his son lives in US, then the PLA top commanders could legitimately remove his position in the military and to push the button without acquiring his nod.

    Well, i support a lot of his father's policy, you should know that.

    Personally, i just don't like Bo's personality and ego.

    Well then stay on the politics. Yesterday's “连坐” and today's “人肉” are not sterling traditions ...

    Lowering inequality, increasing wages and reducing crime are not concrete.

    Only slogans are "concrete". Only paranoid fear of the Cultural Revolution to justify political oppression is concrete. You are just like the blacks who say "I'm never gonna get fired, 'cuz if they do I'm suin' 'em for racial discrimination."

    Wrong. There are political commissars at every level of the military whose sole job is to monitor disobedience. They are usually directly promoted from political areas so are totally isolated from the "regular" military. The top commissar is Xu Caihou who sits equally with the "real" general Guo Boxiong. The military is under very firm civilian control.

    if they weren't, they would have been able to keep their very profitable businesses in the 90's; they couldn't.

    Got replaced by Zhang Dejiang. :tdown: very sad moment.

    Correct Corruption is causing problems that leads to more sever things, Killing Corrupt Officials and Oligarchs and keeping an Iron Fist is essential.

    You are your own cause's worst enemy. With "vanguards" like you, what hope do the proles have?

    And with this level of incoherence, even with a Ferrari, I doubt ...

    I have wasted enough time.

    You help yourself to the bandwidth.

    Really? We seem to think alike in most of the issues. :azn: The thinking process is shaped way before one goes to college. I don't see any of my classmates change how he/she thinks because of Tsinghua.

    oh yeah only the corrupt oligarchs do not waste time. maybe you should make friends with the sister of one of them, i heard Xi Jinping's sister is in Canada.

    it is not because of Tsinghua itself but the type of people it attracts. i know both ppl from Tsinghua and Tsinghua hopefuls who got rejected; they think EXACTLY alike and very different from how i do. i don't want to offend anyone here.

    Thanks, this is the best post of the thread. The tuanpai are totally nonideological. They are in politics to make money.

    The most obvious is Wen. The West always praises Wen as a 'reformer' and 'liberal'. Wen is easily the favorite Chinese politician of neocon Americans and indians. If Fairandunbiased doesn't believe that, he can go google those search terms.

    Princelings are not perfect but at least they have some leftist ideology, not just straight up pragmatism, aka personal greed. Chongqing model should be encouraged.

    And yeah Hu is the tuanpai mastermind. I feel like tuanpai is China's goldman sachs.

    The most loyal Chinese leaders are the ones most warlike, because a corrupt leader will always repress internally and submit externally. Late Qing and Nationalist era are examples. Chinese leaders go to war for national interests, possibly even risking his own position of power.

    The most warlike leader is Xi Jinping. We saw how he stared down USA enemies while he was visiting there. I am really proud of him, especially after 10 years of Hu Jintao rubbish propaganda about peace and harmony at all costs.

    T-Rex, don't worry about China. Some people like Fairandunbiased don't like Xi Jinping because of his domestic politics. But there is no doubt Xi is just as warlike as Bo Xilai against Western imperialism if not more so.

    薄熙来是中共元老薄一波之子,跟习仲勋之子、国家副主席习近平一样,被视为太子党。个性张扬的薄熙来颇具政治野心,为达目的不择手段,他为了晋升政治局常委,在重庆大搞“唱红打黑”运动,尤其“打黑”被戏称为“黑打”,许多受害人或嫌疑犯遭严刑逼供或抄家,下重手的结果是将前任市委书记汪洋、贺国强的左右手打入大牢,严打29个黑帮、关押2千多名公务员,因此树敌无数。

    传私生活荒淫

    其实他备受争议的行事风格从幼年即显露端倪,文革期间,薄熙来是红卫兵组织“联动”成员,宣扬“老子英雄儿好汉,老子反动儿溷蛋”的“血统论”,常带人抄家,期间更响应造反派的“革命潮流”,声明和被打为反革命的父亲断绝关系,并带头对父亲施暴,导致薄一波三根肋骨骨折,母亲胡明则在文革期间自杀。

    关于他私生活荒淫无度的传闻也未断过,据说早年他在大连任职时,有一回大连市高官找模特儿饮酒寻欢,薄熙来与一名模特儿发生关系,由于性爱过程粗暴、激烈,他将模特儿乳头都咬烂,此事引起香港《文汇报》驻大连记者姜维平的愤慨,姜后来因揭露薄熙来在辽宁贪腐桉例,被薄下令判刑8年。

    夫妻海捞375亿

    薄熙来高调招摇,他家人也不低调。薄与前妻李丹宇育有一子李望知,与现在妻子谷开来育有一子薄瓜瓜。“红三代”薄瓜瓜目前在美国哈佛大学就读。外界咸认薄瓜瓜是花花公子。媒体曾刊登他到夜店玩乐、开红色法拉利跑车,他曾追求过中共元老陈云的孙女陈晓丹等,花边传闻不断。谷开来更被批评靠丈夫的关系四处捞钱,据传薄在调任重庆前,夫妻俩已累积了约375亿元台币财富,并将大部分移转到国外。

    Li Keqiang is also a Tuanpai member, but he is going to be submissive towards a tough guy like Xi Jinping.

    Did bo like the west?

    His son is studying in the UK. I've seen pics of his son with a bunch of white sl*ts.

    Xi jinping is pro west.

    Is there anyone that is anti-western?

    Wen jiabao is a weakling.

    In 2005, when the NPC passed the anti-Secession Law, Wen Jiabao gave a speech to Congress.

    His closing words were, "The Chinese people do not welcome war, but they are never afraid of war!"

    In 1999, Jiang Zemin, the mentor of Xi Jinping, when our embassy got bombed right after we were humiliated by US Navy in 1996, cowered in a corner talking about "reconciliation". Now that's a difference.

    Jiang is the mentor of Bo, not Xi.

    Still, Bo is not bad in everything.

    Funny you mention Goldman Sachs because Xi Jinping is personal friends with the oligarchs at Goldman Sachs. Don't believe me, Wikipedia his name. His great friend Wang Qishan is another personal friend of the US oligarchs. The princelings are in bed with Wall Street. They are the 1% and they want to make sure that they will always remain the 1%, and the 99% will never, ever even get to imagine being the 1%. If they come to power, the first thing they will do is get rid of people like you because you're too loud.

    Xi Jinping, stares down enemies :lol: he sends his daughter to stare them down perhaps :lol: and cracks a few jokes with the oligarchs. He was called "humorous" by Henry Paulson himself. Behind the scenes they're all laughing at us for being dumb animals. Warlike, lmao. Jiang got his *** bombed twice and humiliated by US navy, and he cowers in the corner. Don't forget, Jiang is personal friends with the princelings and is on their side. Don't forget "If Taiwan is independent, the whole Chinese people won't agree... but I can." Don't forget that it was Hu that sent a nuclear sub to Japanese waters, not Jiang.

    The princelings are the enemy of China. They pegged the RMB to the USD, they sold our gold reserves, and it was up to Hu to unpeg the RMB and get our gold back. Only the tuanpai cares about China's financial independence. The princelings will take away all your rights and take away all your welfare, and peg the RMB to USD so foreigners can loot the country with impunity.
