US sanctions Chinese companies out of spite

It's no coincidence that during Ahmedinejad's latest trip to China for an SCO meeting the US imposed sanctions on four Chinese companies for "supplying Iran with missile-related parts and items that could contribute to weapons of mass destruction."

Not surprisingly, China did not hesitate to express its displeasure.
China lashed out at the United States for freezing the U.S. assets of four Chinese companies and not allowing them to conduct transactions with Americans.

Chinese Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Jiang Yu says Washington imposed the sanctions without showing evidence of wrongdoing.

"The U.S. wrong practice severely undermines our non- proliferation cooperation and will not benefit the development of bilateral relations," she said. "We require the U.S. side to change their practice and abandon completely the wrong practice of sanction and pressure."
So, the US - an avowed champion of globalization and human rights - not only detains suspects without charge or trial, it sanctions foreign companies without showing evidence of wrongdoing. To make matters worse, it couldn't be more clear that they did it out of spite.

This week, Iran's president is in China for meetings of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which has indicated it will invite Iran to formally join the group of Central Asian nations, Russia, and China.

U.S. officials have criticized the SCO invitation to Iran. Last week Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said it was strange for an organization that is supposed to fight terrorism to invite, what he called, one of the leading "terrorist nations" to its meeting.

Let's not forget that one man's terrorist is another man's freedom fighter.

This latest development will not help to further US interests in the international arena. If anything, it may trigger a string of economic retaliation by disaffected countries.

Qrswave Underestimates UN Conspiracy, Overrates "Spite" Diversion
(Mighty Thor, 15 Jun 06)

Good points made, qrswave, but I disagree Bush II regime really does anything primarily out of "spite." For Bush II follows instructions of Council on Foreign Relations (CFR--see TheNewAmerican.com), the plan being deconstruction of USA in favor of United Nations (UN). Orwellian "perpetual warfare" is integral step and measure in that direction towards world empire of UN. See James Perloff, "The Shadows of Power," and other works by astute Birchers (JBS.org).

Of course then Bush II is frontman who puts "spin" on things, and thus it may seem some things are done in spite. The "outing" of Valerie Plame seems to be one such instance of spite over-stepping--but it was minor in regard to CFR.

So far qrswave, I must say u've been somewhat strangely silent on the matter of UN and CFR, just more Judeo-oligarchal instrumentalities of conspiracy.

For I think it's most important to keep eye on most fundamental substance and not to be distracted by chimera of "spite." "Spite" is mere exterior masking, styling. The large conspiratorial machinery grinds ever onwards, actually quite methodically, especially the UN world dictatorship-conspiracy which entails Jews and Israel, Israel playing a kind of "bad-cop" role in the large charade. Honest elections and death to the Fed. Thor

"U.S. officials have criticized the SCO invitation to Iran. Last week Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld said it was strange for an organization that is supposed to fight terrorism to invite, what he called, one of the leading "terrorist nations" to its meeting."


In 2002, two american teachers were way laid and murdered in indon occupied west papua new guinea. the army blamed the "terrorists" but the local police believed it was a frame up, a us styled black op. even the yanks admitted as much, "It's no longer a question of who did it," a senior U.S. official familiar with the investigation, told AP. "It's only a question of how high up this went within the chain of command," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity."

Rummy has got a problem, he has a grand plan to ring china whith hostile regimes and Indonesia is considered a vital piece of this steel ring. Like hell he is gonna let two dead yanks get in his way. So here come the us humanrights czar john asshcroft, no less, who browbeat the indons police to frame a rebel leader for the crime. With this minor obstacle removed, uncle sham get to rekindle his love affair with his old frame, the tni

Now I am not saying the Chinese are angels on earth, hell not by a long shot.
But for someone with such a , track record (this is neither up to date nor exhaustive, not to mention the covert support for various death squads all over the world), who has no qualm huffing up the murder of two us citizens in order to get in bed with the murderer again, the accusation that the Chinese are cozying up to some "terrorist state" sounds a bit rich to me. As for whether iran is a "leading terrorist state", since unlike uncle sham I am not privy to "top secret cia information" [sic] I have to reserve my judgement, but one thing I am sure is this -- anything coming out of uncle sham should be taken with a huge grain of salt.

wow, Denk. That's some tid-bit of information.

You never hear about these things in the MSM.

Denk, that is a very interesting piece of information. People in the US are racist idiots, and all you have to do is say a non-white person did it, and they buy the crap.

Qrswave, citisucks

Did you folks notice this gem, “Any U.S. finding against the military, however, could jeopardize the Bush administration's desire to restore U.S.-Indonesian military ties, which were suspended after army atrocities in East Timor in 1999”

Hmmm, Does it ring a bell?
“Exxon argues that the suit would have an influence because the judge "would be forced to judge the conduct of the Indonesian government, an ally with whom America's relationship has never been more important”

so we have the self appointed humanrights champion of the world who doesn’t hesitate to bomb the hell out of any third world country in a “humanitarian intervention”, but when it comes to a buddy, our champion of humanrights has to be dragged kicking and screaming to the crime scene, hell he doesn’t want to jeopardize his friendship with the likes of suharto, etc, whom Clinton called “our kind of guys” !! [sic]

denk, welcome aboard! It's nice to have a new "member" come on board, especially someone who can think for themselves.

I personally hope you come back and give us your thoughts (and links)... About 500-2000 people read each article and the accompanying comments --- so you are making a difference. Educating some of us, we can all help each other understand this world a little better!

I'll be frequenting this website, and hopefully I'll be able to read more of your thoughts!

Concerned citizen of the world.

Well, it is good to have both a new miss r and denk too. It is good to see the popularity of this blog increasing.

Bu$h will do whatever it takes to defend his friends the corporate terrorists. Bu$h and his corporate terrorist friends don't just kill with bombs though. They also kill with lies and by tricking people into having to pay them huge amounts of interest. They kill by stealing resources from those who need them the most. The corporate terrorists and Bu$h have probably killed more people through starvation and lack of health care than bombs. The direct murders are just the tip of the iceberg.

By the way new Miss R., if you want a good laugh you should note that the old Miss R, who cites "freedom of speech" as the reason she supports the racist Danish cartoons, ironically (and hypocritally in the style of SUV Democrap liberalism)deleted my comments from her blog.
