China Indignant at Nobel Peace Prize

liu-xiaobo

China is outraged at one of its citizens being awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, and has threatened Norway with diplomatic consequences for allowing the award.

The prize, worth 10 million krona ($1.5 million), was awarded to Liu Xiaobo, a 54-year-old former university professor internationally feted for his efforts to promote democracy in China, though little known in China itself due to state censorship.

Liu was jailed for 11 years in 2008 for “inciting subversion” after daring to suggest China should institute democratic reforms.

China was indignant at the award, calling Liu a “criminal” and saying the decision to award it to him “runs counter to the intent of the prize, and desecrates the peace prize.”

Showing its usual diplomatic finesse, China then threatened Norway with for allowing the prize to be awarded, saying that it “will likely cause damage to our relations with Norway.” Just what it intends to do was left unspecified.

China also summoned the Norwegian ambassador for a dressing down, in spite of the fact the prize is not awarded by the government but by an independent body (albeit one with members appointed by the Norwegian parliament).

Reporting of the award was heavily censored in China – Nobel prize reports from such broadcasters as the BBC, CNN and NHK were blacked out when they began to mention China’s unwanted triumph:

    Saving face via censorship is just retarded. It's the internet age, every Chinese netizen knows about this already, and the general consensus amongst them is that the government is making itself look like collective idiots.

    Okay let's not pull random facts out of nowhere. Firstly, he has been a prominent figure in China for almost 20 years and plenty of people respect him for what he is fighting for. And secondly, yes people know about the Nobel Prize too, the media coverage there is quite widespread. The blackout only happened AFTER he was announced as the winner.

    Yeah, I know there're many Chinese people who manage to bypass the filter, but that's not what I'm talking about. I'm talking about the fact that rural China (that is, a vast majority of the country) doesn't have Internet connections, even though they may have computers or other devices with this functionality. And on top of that there's the filtering issue.

    Yeah I agree with some posts here Artefact : it would be nice for information purpose, to say who in China you are talking about instead of saying "China did this" "China did that". It's funny and all, but 1 - those are serious subjects & 2 - China is a lot of different people.
    And I don't like how many people here seem to imagine they can understand the situation of a country they never lived in.
    It's the same pattern as how some westerners came to the misunderstanding of how japanese people wants to be caucasian.
    Some people imagine stuff and think it's reality because of how things are presented through some news that only wants to show the shocking aspect of a subject.
    I'm not against shocking news, or presenting the crunchy part of the information, that's a way to make them interesting. But missing out some important parts or formulating in certain ways leads to misunderstandings...maybe even some hasty conclusions.

    Anon, sensible and smart ppl know that the problem is the idiotic Chinese Government that is to blame. The picture up there shows Mr Liu's sympathizers and friends on a manifestation supporting him and Nobel committee's decision to give him the prize. Unfortunately, due to the heavy censorship, most Chinese didn't know what the whole thing was about.

    It doesn't matter, the Chinese Govt is being supported by the western hypocrisy so... Actually this Nobel is some fresh air to the rotten hypocrisy around the world.

    You're the one who doesn't get it.

    The Nobel prize is given by a independent non-governmental organization. Regardless of whether the prizes are justly given, Norway's government has nothing to do with it. If they were to interfere, they'd be publicly attempting against their own laws which state the rights of it's citizens.

    The Chinese government is completely out of line trying to impose it's own policies on other countries.

    There is no cherry picking, just correcting what brownbear said that Japan took the islands from China in WW2 which they did not seeing as they where allready in japanese hands since 1895 and ww2 did not happen untill 1939, or are you trying to say that WW2 happend before 1895?

    "The Senkaku islands have been in japanese hands since 1895, it was the US that took them from Japan in WW2 and then gave them back in 1972."

    Way to cherry pick your information. Taiwan and all surrounding islands (which includes Senkaku/Daiyutai) were surrendered to Japan after the first Sino-Japan war, but when American forced Japan to return all conquered territories they disputed that the island were not part of the deal. The American decision to hand the islands over to Japan was simply politics - China wasn't an ally back then and they had no reason to do what was right.

    I don't think people understand the entire situation.

    The Chinese government IS to blame for all this craziness. However, what about the regular Chinese citizens?

    If you pull from other sources that isn't Sankaku, you'll realize that Chinese netizens are actually applauding the Nobel Prize Committee for awarding Liu Xiaobo.

    I think that Sankaku complex is just feeding the hawks what it wants to hear. Unfortunately, CHINA is not equivalent to THE CHINESE GOVERNMENT. There is a big difference between the ideas of those who lead the nation, and those who simply live in it.

    Well this is exactly what happened.
    For Senkaku Islands, it seems like japan take the island during ww2, then USA defeated Godzilla and took over the island. Then b4 they left, they hand over to japan instead of back to china.

    Well...Sankaku is biased and anti-China, we know that for a long time. you do have to realize that reforming a country politically takes more than just justification and words. It is a part of tradition, just like how we are used to our ways. The release will not happen just because other countries are pressing China into it. In contrast, they will not be allowed to show weakness.

    And if you ever take look at other sources, you will realize that Liu's ideas are small and insignificant that he doesn't even deserve the Nobel. This decision was clearly aimed at China, the timing is too perfect, it is to be expected for them to be angry. But i have to admit that China making Norway Gov't take the blame is clearly wrong.

    i personally don't believe you should be considered alive till you are out of the womb, but i can scale that back to 3 months prior to birth, and i don't think you are human until you can say a word.

    i mean person kills someone who is 1 month pregnant, and they treat it as to people died?

    fuck that

    but if he kills them within 3 months of delivery, till there first word, it should be treated as though he killed the person who could cure cancer or aids.

    Chernobyl happens because russians tried to make a nuclear power plant during a time when they forgot how t fucking farm, this wasn't hay day space race russia, this was inbred alabama stupid russia.

    and we have a save method of disposal. there is a hole we dug, forgot the name, into a mountain, where we can easily dump the material and it will not effect shit. and the method of transport is safe enough that even any bomb a terrorist could get there hands on couldn't crack it, and even if, god forbid, the train derails into another train, the material inside is safe, but because of pussies who fear nuclear power so much, the hole we dug, and the method to transport aren't used ever.

    now, todays nuclear tech is MILES ahead of what it was when we build them. its safer than mining coal, and here, lets never build any kind of infrastructure if we have to be constantly afraid of terrorists. seriously, grow some balls, if you want to be afraid of terrorists, than live somewhere where terrorism happens and and not in some place where it only really happed once. unless you think they will get away with hijacking a plane again, and make it to a power plant, without being gunned down, which is irrational.

    @alidan

    You don't know shit about nuclear power technology. The processes required to mine, refine and transport uranium, and also the enormous effort required to permanently store the depleted fuel elements classes nuclear power plants about the same as the newest generation of coal power plants in terms of carbon footprint. Highly concentrated uranium ore is needed to actually get a positive energy balance out of the whole process, and as suitable deposits become increasingly difficult to mine, the carbon footprint keeps getting even worse.

    While everyone with even half a bit of knowledge about the technology knows that modern nuclear power plants are extremely secure and that it's more likely to get your head chopped off by renegade wind power wheels during a storm than a 2nd Chernobyl happening, we have to take terrorism into account these days. A bombed nuclear power plant would almost be as bad as actually getting nuked.

    Regardless of CO2 and terrorism, the lack of a reasonable solution for disposing of depleted fuel elements remains the biggest issue, and also the best reason to stay away from nuclear power until fusion plants eventually become economically viable.

    coal needs to die as a resource, at least in power.

    a nuke power plant is safer and provides more power and less pollution, once the fagots who appose nuke power die, coal will too.

    Tibet has little coal, oil and natural gas. The country generates most of it's energy through hydroelectric plants.
    It wouldn't be economically viable for China to invade Tibet for resources.

    @alidan

    Yes, but nuclear plants are much more complex, costly, dangerous and time-consuming to build. China is a developing country, and it needs to rapidly increase its energy output so as not to fall behind demand. They sit on a large amount of coal. Coal is cheap to mine and process, and easy to extract energy from.

    @Talifag Tibet has only a little coal, oil and gas?

    "In 1999 more than 1000 researchers divided into 24 separate regiments and fanned out across the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau, geologically mapping an area the size of California, Texas and Montana for the first time ever. Their findings: 16 major new deposits of copper, iron, lead, zinc and other minerals worth an estimated $128 billion, according to articles published last week on the website of the China Tibet Information Center, a government-run portal.
    According to the Geological Survey's hopeful Zhang, "super-large" crude oil and gas reserves in Tibet's far-western Qiangtang Basin, as well as large quantities of oil shale deposits in areas west of the new train line."

    That was only one big research expedition. There are huge amounts of ressources in Tibet. See here:

    No, because China import most of their oil from Venezuela and the UAE.
    It's cheaper for them to import it than to mine it themselves.

    Coal mostly. I know there are 4 oil fields in China already - it wouldn't surprise me if they discovered other bodies of oil buried under the landscape.

    China just invades other countries like Tibet or (if they dare) Senkaku to gain ressources. That's why they need to be stopped.

    ..nope.avi
    The Chinese invaded Tibet because they believe that Tibet is technically a province of China, and that the populace were in rebellion.

    Fuck knows what they were doing on the Senkaku Islands though.

    @Schrobby

    That expedition you stated was carried out in 1999. China "annexed" Tibet in the 1700s during the Qing Dynasty, lost control of the area for a period in the 1900s, and then regained it in the 1950s via the Communists.

    Similarly, the Senkaku/Diaoyu islands were a part of China for a much, much larger period of history than Japan, and only fell to the latter through underhanded post-war agreements made after the first Sino-Japanese war.

    I'm not saying resources wouldn't factor into this, as it's typically the reason for any acquisition of land. However,to assume it's the only reason - regardless of how lowly you view the PRC - demonstrates a very narrow viewpoint.

    Not really, Venezuela's faggot president would give away the oil for free (like he's already doing) on the excuse that it's to help them fight capitalism.

    *Sniff* it brings a tear to my eye to see China grow up and show that they learned so much from us. Also don't have to throw on some politically correct bull shit and pretend we give a SHIT about europe and the rest of them like we do, lucky bastards.

    I love the irony of such pathetic remarks.
