What an indictment of Socialism

Whenever a powerful earthquake strikes a communist country it is a major, major disaster. …

About 300 dead, 8,000 injured in 7.1-magnitude quake in China's Qinghai

What is it with the Chinese? They built a wall thousands of miles long, hundreds of years ago. And a lot of it is still standing.

But a quake of not that unusual intensity is likely to kill hundreds of children as it wrecks the most public of public property.

And the worst thing is that the country's rulers will go unpunished.
They might as well be Merchant Bankers and make money out of their disasters, without putting so much at risk.

  1. China is celebrating the deaths of over 2000 people today. And the government which has to be the most outstanding dance troupe organiser in the world, is blaming the earthquake in which they died.Actually the people lived in North West China, a region that celebrates murderous incompetence and dangerous working conditions.No prizes for guessing who was to blame for this act of god.Clue by four:It wasn't god.I work in the building industry. There is a loosely pejorative term for cowboys in the trade: Chancers and dancers.And it is the chancers that have built the infrastructure of China that is set to kill thousands more all over the country before the regime finally comes crashing down.And because it is an evil regime that butchers men women and children, recently builders in China buried a woman alive for protesting againt the way her home was taken from her.God knows what damage is due from the Three Gorges catastrophe. As catastrophe it will surely be.
