    Wonder if he was put up to it by his parents and/or the documentarist that was traveling with them. Hrrm. Also sounds like they might be missionaries or something.

    In any case, the kid has huge balls. Or a new bike as soon as his parents make it to the nearest Toys R Us.

    I wonder if they even realized how crazy they were being to do that.  The plainclothes cops probably would have beaten him to a pulp if he wasn't a foreigner.

    errr...I think a unified Korea is good, unfortunately, it's seriously against the interests of both the US and China. So, you know..

    they're jesusians; they don't care about how stupid they're being. Still, I think the idea of brainwashing the kid into doing it was so they could escape punishment.

    Hahahahaha ... this piece of news is quite sensitive itself, as it had mentioned a particular year, I wonder if anyone in China is monitoring this :)

    Why do Americans protest in Beijing if they want peace between two Koreas? Haven't they realized a key to peace is in the hands of their own government?

    "Unfortunately they won't be killed as they should"

    Uh, what? I'm gonna pretend this is a language issue - or are you condoning the execution of a couple of extremely misguided missionaries?

  • Simen Wangberg

    Do elaborate.

    Fine, so they violated some variety of Chinese law or custom with their little protest or whatever. Why do they deserve to be executed for that?

    Absolutely true, but in this case the nerd isn't giving his lunch money to the bully. Instead, the nerd is giving his lunch money to the poor creepy autistic kid who lives in the basement and never attends school. Except that kid doesn't spend the money on ramen like he should. He uses it to fund his meth lab in the nerd's basement.

    "So, coming to Beijing to show that pitiful badly handwritten panel is an act that I find extremely offensive to this country..."

    I assume from your grasp of English and profile picture that you are foreign - ? Love the sense of entitlement that some foreigners get when they've lived here for more than a year or so. Who are you to judge what's "offensive" to China? Or are you saying that you agree with their policies re: freedom of speech/religion/etc?

    China's policies are not without purpose, but that doesn't mean they're not fucked up. Not to mention, the idiot missionary family and their documentarian didn't even say anything that was necessarily offensive towards the Party. Those retards just want some kind of peace park or something.

    "...completely useless if not for having their (fuck)faces all over the medias."

    We're talking about them now, aren't we. People hold protests and wave signs all over D.C. every day. They certainly don't do it in Tian'anmen every day...

    Considering that, maybe these morons know what they're doing after all, if their objective is to get as much coverage as they can.I suspect they'll be doing interviews with Western media outlets not long after they land in the States.

    Yeah, the U.S. has more to do with the respective Koreas' policies than China does. But their protests would barely make a ripple in the U.S., while they can make waves here.

    What are you smoking? I need some. Seriously, how do you come up with this stuff?

    "...look if u wanna live here this is the way you should behave, its either you accept it with faith or you go back to where ever you like..."

    I'm not saying that foreigners should go around flouting Chinese law willy-nilly just because they disagree with it.

    But I still can't tell if what'shisnuts above is actually trying to defend China's policies or just being hyperbolic because he doesn't like missionaries or Koreans or whatever.

    China has been helping NK economically, militarily and politically--It is a fact...The probelm here is whether it is worthwhile...a few protesters, of course, don't matter too much...But the current Chinese leadership should really give some serious thoughts on what direction they should be working to...help NK transform to a more more plural and opener country or continue to support the Kim family's dictatorship in order to gain some contorl over NK's recources as well as to show a tough example of the socialist camp (if it still exists)???...

    His two cousins have already been annihilated by the bully because they don't have meth lab.
