China taking a tough stand against terrorism


A new anti terrorism law has been passed by the highest legislature in China, the Standing Committee of the National People’s Congress. This timely and necessary law is well received by countries around the world that are also facing the threats of terrorism. Unfortunately and expectedly, the USA is at their worst behavior again, attacking and criticizing China on everything, even this law against terrorism.
What are the real issues or non issues that the Americans are raising? The points being flagged by the Americans are, one, technology firms are required to help to decrypt information on terrorism if demanded by the Chinese authority. Two, there is a provision to limit the media from making reports related to terrorist attacks that are cruel or inhuman.

Why are these two provisions so difficult to the Americans that they have to react so negatively and totally dismissed the spirit and intent of the anti terrorist law?  The first objection to require technology firms to decipher information suspected of terrorist related activities is only proper and necessary. The Chinese authority is not demanding that the technology firms revealed their encryption codes but to produce the decrypted information. Why is this so difficult to comply? If the technology firms are not involved with unlawful or espionage activities they have nothing to fear. And it is only right that such demands be handled professionally. The US govt would similarly make such demands to any technology firms operating in the USA.

No foreign firm operating in any country is allowed to operate freely and not to cooperate with the local govt to tackle terrorist activities and threats.  How is this law more compromising than the sweeping American law to monitor and eavesdrop on the communications and phone conversations of its citizens and leaders, including foreign leaders?

The second objection is even more baseless. It is only decent for the mass media not to air inhuman or cruel terrorist acts and risks them being imitated or copied by other potential terrorists. The Americans themselves have banned reports or references to how they dealt with terrorists and the activities in Guantanamo Bay Detention Camp.


It is time the Americans act and behave more responsibly in this war against terrorism and cooperate with other nations and not to pull the rug off the feet of countries fighting the terrorists. The American’s attack on China’s anti terrorist law is bizarre and shameful and speaks poorly on America as a world leader.

PS. I want to preempt Veritas from going tangentially off course and stick to the issue of terrorism.

RB

Because they are Americans mah.

And for the same reasons what the opposition said or proposed, especially if it comes from Chee Soon Juan, is so difficult to the PAP that they have to react so negatively and totally dismissed the spirit and intent of what the opposition said or proposed, especially during election time. And vice versa.

The criticism of decryption requirement is real, as it help facilitate censorship. China Great Internet Firewall is not used against terrorist but against blocking information.

Everyone in business trip in China knows how choking it is when one cannot access BBC, and can only access waterdown-Google. Any search string like "Xi Jinping mistress", few years agao, "Jiang Zemin and Song Zuying sex" were automatically block.

The China Great Wall in a way fuel tyranny, and worse, ignorant stupidity, bigotry, hate, Chinese-Nazism and even Chinese-jingoist-gangsterism.

But China concern of USA color-revolution propaganda is real.

But that's not an issue, if China can still become a global economic power.

And the strong criticism of PAP is also not an issue, if PAP can still win 70% of votes in a general election.

Hence the focus should be on what really matters, as the rest are secondary.

#1 is Illegal Demand that opposes Protection Law (such as PDP/ IP). Asking technology firm to break the encrypted code is the same offence as ordering authorised person (with secret passwords) to misuse/ abuse the sensitive code.

#2 is Unrealistic Demand that opposes (respectful) Freedom of Speech. The media is already restricted with mechanism (against terrorism) like content moderation/ blockage n Internet Law.

" If you believe more gun control by your government is going to save lives, you are being naïve.
The champion of all the mass killings in this world is always a tyrannical government.

Where I came from, China had killed thousands of the students by its own government during the massacre of Tian An Men square in 1989.
I surely wish my fellow Chinese citizens back then had guns like this one I am holding in the picture.

I am a Chinese immigrant and an American citizen by choice. I once was a slave before and I will never be one again.

I will always stand with my AR, no matter what my President signs with his pen. "

Wait till the Americans reinvoke the Chinese Exclusion Act then you know.

Everyone by now will already know that ISIS was created by us to be used against russia. Unfortunately, us is well known for not able to execute ideas into proper actions and thus the beast is getting out of hand. The result will be leading to more violence and thus everyone (ie all common people) loses.

Anonymous said...

Not true. The US knows exactly what they are doing. The beast was let out to create instability everywhere to increase demand for American weapons and also to destabilise countries. As long as homeland America is safe, the most messy the world is, the better it is for the Americans to dominate and control them. Let everyone be fighting each other, and the Americans would be there to be the sheriff, and also sell more weapons.

You are sadly mistaken.
The Americans love Lily Tang.
(Look at all her Twitter comments)

Americans love and support freedom fighters who will protect their own self interest.
They despise slaves who blindly serve Chinese emperors.

similar Tienanmen square massacre going to happen in Oregon

US media call them as "domestic terrorist " despite they are allow to possess gun.

No single US media had portrayed them as "freedom fighter" or encourage more people to support their cause,unlike their critical coverage on June 4.

Anonymous said...

veritas,
you are using internet to search for such "rubbish " topics.

China is doing right thing to block those searches. (unproductive works)
it encourage endless rumors , gossip and it is very bad for creating a society with
"critical thinking"

look at the taiwan news ( their focus always on "silly" angle )

China try to encourage more people to search for more constructive topics.

Most terrorist are using social media and encryption system to hide their terror plots.

Otherwise, why would US regime demand similar treatment from US company?

Veritas, what do you think about the latest case - missing HK bookseller?

What if i told you that the Hk bookseller had been caught for visiting prostitute , would you believe it?

Majority of people would say NO.
The reality say otherwise.

People are grown up adults and they have the right to access to 99% of the rubbish. The only sanitize place is North Korea whereby the government tries hard to protect people against Rubbish.

I hope you and your family are born there and come to me shouting Kim is God, like a fucking clowns and asshole.

Modern civilisations, those living today and the millenia, must believe in themselves and their knowledge of the world and civilisations. Thousands of years of new knowledge and new truths have made many of the ancient sayings rather foolish. Civilisations should progress, move forward with new knowledge. Only the unthinking and backward minds would seek to believe in the make beliefs of yesteryears that have been proven awfully wrong and stubbornly refusing to think otherwise.

Use the knowledge you have learnt and your own wisdom to separate the truth from the chaff. Do not cheat yourself of a new life. Seek the truth and be free from beliefs that are just beliefs.

Believe me, your education and the knowledge you have accumulated would make you a super genius if you were to live among the ancients 1000 or 2000 years ago. They will kneel down to pray to you as Gods for what you know and can teach them. You are masters of knowledge, not them. You want illiterates or semi illiterates to be your masters and dictate how you should live your life?

Anonymous said...

Agree with RB. This is why the Americans and Europeans are progressing so rapidly in science and technology while the rest are still dabbling in witchcraft and primitive ways of life, living a backward lifestyle.

The West are looking into the future, the rest are looking into the past.

What is visiting prostitutes got to do with anything?
Freedom loving patriots fuck whoever they want as long as it is consensual.

Slaves marry and fuck ugly women chosen for them by their emperors.

There are still emperors in your life! You are so pitiful.
Keep living in the past. Keep reading your holy book and you will end up in heaven and live happily ever after.
No need to work hard, no need to progress. Going backward is progress to you.

Better go to IMH to have a check up. This kind of obsession is a very serious mental condition.

veritas, people are grown up adult?

they are still busy killing each other over trivial issue - ideological difference.
men cant control their sexual urge - peeping, stalking and molesting women

men still rape women as punishment.

if women cheat with another guy, the faults still goes to women. They killed those women rather than respecting her free choice .

Govt need to regulate their behavior to protect security of wider society.

Hell is pave with good intentions. All society have criminals and government is there for law enforcement. That does not mean that government can fuck women and people do not have right to know.

Everyone in China know Jiang zemin fuck Song zuying and Ling Jihua, Zhou Yongkang like to fuck also.

People have the right to know.

Also people have the right to know Mao zedong fuck Zhang yufeng, Sun Weishi and Dr Sun Yatsen is a fucking pedophille.

We do not need a fucker to tell us what we cannot know.

Government just need to lay down a law to punish criminals.
