China muffled people’s applause to Kim

Kim in

The attitude of Chinese people to Kim Jong-il has been turned 180 degrees from dislike to like in the past several months, although Chinese government tries to hide this fact to the world.

On May 7, 2010, China’s media reported China’s President Hu Jintao met with North Korea top leader Kim Jong-il. Only two hours after the news were published on Chinese portal sites and, near 2000 domestic Chinese had commented on the two sites for their welcomes to Kim. Some comments said they admire Kim because no one in the world has the guts like Kim who dares to say NO to U.S.

Worrying these comments may bring unhappy responses from the other side of the world, China let its media censors take quick actions. They deleted these web comment pages full of Chinese readers’ appreciations and welcomes to Kim and erased the web links on these relevant news pages for people to comment. Chinese people’s voices are turned off again as usual in China. Why did Chinese people totally change their attitude to Kim in the past several months is because:

First, they believe U.S. and its friendly countries are trying to ruin China’s economy by urging China to raise RMB exchange rate.

Second, they believe U.S. and NATO have contained China geographically by setting up military bases around China.

Third, they see U.S., NATO, even Russia are supporting China’s surrounding countries by arm sales to them, and these countries are using or going to use these weapons to claim resources and territories from China. Since 1989, China has been arms-embargoed by U.S. and Europe for more than 20 years.

Forth, they believe U.S. and Japan are using Taiwan issue, the Dalai Lama, and Rabiye Qadir to against China.

Fifth, they feel China is so lonely in the world, and North Korea is China’s only strategic buffer and a country can be called a little brother.

Not long ago, Chinese people did not like Kim due to his country’s hereditary on the position of the state head, but now they think national security and not so lonely in the world are more important.
