From your resident China "hater": The State Department has identified the eight Chinese companies and two men it punished with economic sanctions last week for selling arms to Iran. They include: •Jiangsu Yongli Chemicals and Technology Import and Export •China Machinery and Equipment Import Export •China National Machinery and Equipment Import Export •CMEC Machinery and Electric Equipment Import and Export •CMEC Machinery and Electrical Import Export •China Machinery and Electric Equipment Import and Export •Wha Cheong Tai •China Shipbuilding Trading [url]http://www.washtimes.com/national/20020726-31740576.htm[/url]

Oh yeah, I really wish the Chinese would do away with actually calling these entities "companies." More like offcial apparati (plural of "apparatus" please?) of the People's Republic.

And now for what could be the ultimate irony for the Chi-Coms: "Scores of Islamic separatists from China's northwestern Xinjiang province were sponsored and trained by Osama bin Laden's al Qaeda network, China's state-owned television reported. Many Uighurs, the Turkic-speaking, Muslim native people of the region, want to break away from predominantly Han China. [b]Beijing has traditionally kept quiet about the decade-old movement, and some international observers interpret the recent display of attention as an effort to entice U.S. support for moves against Uighur separatists while the war against terrorism is in progress.[/b]" Seems that their support of the Islamists may ultimately bite them in the ass. Turns out radical Islam is as much a threat to totalitarian control as it is to freedom in the U.S.! "Isn't it ironic," sings Alannis!

I trust the little yellow devils. They wouldn't do anything to jeopardize US interests!

woa, what the language there. I think it's safe to conclude that radical Islam is a threat to everyone that's not a radical muslim. It seems that everyone is having a radical muslim problem, the Russians have it, the Chinese have it, and now, we have it. Hehe, sounds like a disease to me.

Just wondering, what are the requirements for arms export? I mean can a US company export arms to say militia in Congo? What about paramilitary groups and governments not recognized by the united states?

Instead of getting bogged down fighting the Muslims of the world, why not just sick them on the chinese like with the Russians. Those Muslims hate those godless commies as much as we used too. We could finance them and give them proper weapons and logistics, it would be a win win for everyone and would retard the chinese communists from becoming a super power, a place they are poised too be in a decade or so. And if you think we live in tough times now, wait until those MF"ers are a real power and see the return to the dark ages and an end too freedom of any kind.
