Tyrants of a Feather: Zimbabwe & China Story dated 08 May 2005
Apparently, the People's Republic of China has a tyrant outreach program. The aim of the program is to provide aid and support to tyrannies that are less well off. In this case, the tyrants of Beijing are using their information suppression/information gathering expertise to make the regime of Zimbabwe's Robert "the Terrible" Mugabe more efficient at repressing the people of that land. "Sophisticated Chinese bugging equipment is being installed clandestinely in homes, offices, restaurants and even lavatories. Chinese technicians handed it over to the Central Intelligence Organisation earlier this year in an effort to block the circulation of what Mugabe calls "hostile propaganda"." Such "hostile propaganda," if in the form of a radio broadcast originating from outside the country, is subject to jamming.
But don't worry. You're in America. What China does doesn't concern you, right? I mean, what could a nation with around 2 billion people, a huge army, and newly acquired advanced nuclear delivery systems do to us, anyway? You go back to reading your news stories about what celebrity is dating what other celebrity. Don't worry about a thing. . . _____________________________________________
