Berlusconi is a total whack job. Next he will be saying the communists almost ran over protesting students with tanks in the national capital.

Along time ago before communism existed, in times of famine it was usual for old Chinese who could not support themselves to volunteer to be butchered and be used as food for their families.
The logic was that their families took care of them in their old age, so it was their natural duty to do what they could to pay back the debit.

If their families were not willing to do the deed, the elderly would commit suicide with instructions for the families to make good use of the food.

The article doesn't say if the babies were boiled alive or not, but if they were already dead, it would be totally within the norm for Chinese culture/tradition.

IMHO not a matter for non Chinese to judge on at all.

Or maybe claiming that communists "purge" people that say things like that.

Hell, Uncle Joe Stalin LOVED Trotsky. (Stuffed Trotsky, grilled Trotsky, Trotsky flambe, Iced Trotsky...)

Yoda are you? You speak in Yoda speak..... I have to put you in my Star Wars Yoda filter to understand your syntax. However, keep it up. You are more entertaining than Ms. Cleo and Dionne Warwick put together.
