I own the Diaoyu Islands

I keep telling everybody but nobody listens: I own those islands. I bought them from a Japanese sailor in 1956. I still have his receipt. I forget what name he gave these islands but they're not very big, only as big as a garbage can, if that! So if the Chinese and the Japanese would stop to listen to me they'd understand that it's my turf they're squabbling about and it's time they shook hands and came to my place for a spot of tea.

Who would want to knock China?

China's Oz connection is valuable to China as Oz is well placed to mediate between China and the US. We Aussies who know China love China. It's as simple as that. We are in a good position to sort out differences that are largely caused by mis-perceptions and not by actuality. We love China because it is a good place full of good people. Who would want to knock China? Only the ignorant and the pathetically-natured would want to spoil things for China and its friends such as Oz.

How Pathetic is China nowadays?

I wish I were part of the perfect society as China seems to be claiming for itself. I wish I were so gifted that I would have perfection. With such perfection no other being would compare with me. I wonder why China is so stroppy. What a load of shit this kerfuffle about some spots of land that pop up in the ocean. You can't farm them; you can't live on them. What is the use other than to claim them as your own. How pathetic!

Tariq Aziz: Why should he now be killed?

This is pathetic! Indeed, what purpose? If I had been Aziz I would have resisted the Yanks to the death. For this he is being murdered? Or did he do something really bad? If he did, he still should not be put to death. The world has to begin to show kindness. Tariq Aziz must be kept alive.

JOHN HOWARD: Shoe thrown at him

I take it that the protester was figuratively telling Howard to 'shoo'? But the voters had done that to Howard a few years ago.

China's legal System is a JOKE!!!!!

I went to a lawyer in Huangshi to take an employer to court for abuse of contract law. The lawyer continued to represent me until he found out that my employer was a senior member of the Party. After that, the lawyer dropped my case. This is a legal system? Hahaha... you are joking!

No one can believe the Chinese any more

What utter crap! China has not mentioned the fact that the Chinese managers shot eleven Zambian workers. Yes, shot them! That is why Africa is getting sick of China. It's the lies. No one can believe the Chinese any more.

The Chinese managers opened fire and shot eleven Zambian workers. The workers were protesting against pay and conditions at this Chinese managed mine in Zambia. The two Chinese managers are under arrest for murder and attempted murder. This is very big news in Africa where millions are annoyed by Chinese attitudes toward dark people.

Well we saw Dutch Courage in Srebrenica when they allowed Ratko Mladic to murder 7000 Muslim boys and men. Where did the term 'Dutch Courage' emanate from if not from a history of failed bravery?

China's Farce

Now that the new China is on the road again with the Plenum's usual vague pronouncement, we may see a slight loosening of the iron grip that holds China together. Or is that asking too much? China is a country whose Premier and President have no real power. Chins seems to be governed in secret because what Liu Xiaobo wanted was a mere opening up and a sense of accountability introduced for the first time into China's politics. Oh! Hang on! That's what Wen Jiabao asked for in his CNN interview, an interview that has not been published so far in his own country. What a farce!

Will we see brutality in Beijing's streets again?

The convicted man said much the same as Wen Jiabao said during his famous interview with CNN recently. Is the Chinese Premier in jail? What is the matter with China? Has it gone mad again?
Will we revisit Tienanmen again and see brutality in Beijing streets again? Will the China Daily publish this letter? How open is Wen's China?

I nominate Premier Wen Jiabao for Nobel Peace Prize

I nominate Premier Wen Jiabao for doing more for world peace than anyone else on earth.

Mr Wen is a man of peace. I have been to China six times since 2004 and with each stay I have become more impressed by
Wen Jiabao. His touch with ordinary Chinese marks him as a special human.

I wish the world knew more of this remarkable man.

I am 6th generation Australian. I wrote my thesis on Mao Zhu Xi in 1968.

To me, Wen ranks up there with Mao.

Poor Miss Ritchie can't act

Poor Miss Ritchie can't act. She was a cute kid in Summer Bay. Then she grew up and everyone realised the cute kid can't act. She still can't act. I could see how the show was drifting, with more and more characters taking up more and more screen time and poor Miss Ritchie was just about side-lined.

The horrors of war serve to connect her with war and to soften the sense of betrayal.

Talking with strangers can be so palliatively palliative. Catholics do it with strange priests and people on planes yak sometimes to each other when the mood strikes. I have never been to a hairdresser... Been cutting my own hair for 40 years ... Yes. It certainly shows!

The horror syndrome catches up with its prey in all cases and ***** will be having her share of the horrors. They manifest themselves in both familiar and strange manner, and no one seems to have the all-encompassing method for alleviating the horrors...all we have are palliatives and maybe a few more hairdressers are what ***** may need ... at even the most ludicrous of pregnancy demanding sugar at the odd hours of the night!

I know that many soldiers retreat from civilian life... I have been in both the navy and the army and I have that awkward contempt for the way civilians fuck things up. There is a gulf that returning soldiers must jump if there is to be a connection with civilian life. It's the job of you two and *****' friends to absorb as much of her horror without being patronising. Then she can connect without that sense of betraying her fellow soldiers who remain in the field. The horrors serve to connect her with war and to soften the sense of betrayal.

Returning soldiers suffer the break from their war; it's withdrawal symptoms resemble the melancholy of the drug addict's withdrawal. They must be reassured that they have done their duty and that the nation supports them and their fellow soldiers who remain in the field. This is what civilians do not understand:

***** has undergone a double whammy of duty... To be there and to experience the results of being be at war! She has seen the tragedy at its most solemn and its impact will be indelible.

I feel for you blokes now.

We who act as whores are strays of society

What's wrong with you? KAK is absolutely right ... spot on! The way you people write, you'd think that women have no libido. Men and women are whores and there's nothing wrong with that. It's our nature. If KAK wishes to accurately describe some of us as strays then that is what we are ... strays. We stray from the path of sensible behaviour and if our whorish nature takes over then we act as strays. So be it.

NSW Police use Tasers and Capsicum Spray as 'punishment'

A recent report on police use of Tasers and capsicum spray indicated that police use these instruments as 'punishment'. I thought that punishment was the sole prerogative of the courts. So many of us ordinary blokes have witnessed police 'over-kill' where it is so obvious the police are not trained in dealing with human beings.
