If true, the Taliban will die from lead poisoning. The Chinese are doing God's work.

The Taliban’s China Connection

September 3rd, 2007 by whymrhymer
Adding to our world-wide web of worries: Iraq, Afghanistan and Iran — not to mention North Korea; China has now added to our already large pile of China-related concerns.
It’s not bad enough that China’s manufacturing industry is out of control and trying to poison our children with toxic toys (and who knows what else will turn up); we now learn that they are supplying weapons to the Taliban. It may or not be a Chinese government sponsored effort but we learn now through a BBC report that the Taliban has, for some time now, been using “surface-to-air missiles, anti-aircraft guns, landmines, rocket-propelled grenades and components for roadside bombs” — all made in China.
That BBC report quoted an Afghan government official who explained (or was perhaps attempting to justify China’s involvement in the Middle-east) that “China is worried about the presence of the US in the region”.
Now why would that be? What do you suppose is China’s big interest in Middle-Eastern conflicts? Could it be because the British and American presence in the area is threatening to interfere with their sales of arms to Iran (who is, in turn, supplying those same sophisticated and deadly toys to the Taliban and others)? Or perhaps China’s concern is about that favorite rallying cry of the American Left — oil! According to The China Institute China’s interest in Middle-Eastern oil is intense and growing. China has financial interests in Iranian oil fields, the Middle-eastern state of Bahrain has business interests in China tied to its oil industry and Syria and China are also in the ‘oil bed’ together.
You could gather from all this that China, at least from the U.S. and British points-of-view, can’t be trusted; but that’s not even close to being news. Realistically, when ‘push comes to shove,’ not even our closest allies can be trusted. Every nation, with very few exceptions (such as the U.S.), will look first to its own interests and we should expect nothing more or less. Britain is our ally the vast majority of the time because, at least in most cases, what’s good for the U.S. is also good for Britain — the Middle-eastern conflict and the common-interest of squashing terrorism is a perfect case in point.
What then should be done about China? Whatever we do it has to be done diplomatically — and very carefully. China, from all evidence, may be a ‘bomb’ that is ready to explode.

We should think of China's roll in killing our soldiers in Afghanistan when we are considering buying any of the Chinese junk that is flooding through outlets like Wal-Mart

China's weapons are probably as reliable as the crap we import from them. Enjoy Taliban.

I freely admit that I really have no factual data on the munitions trade, but I thought the whole of the third world was "awash" in weaponry.
I seem to remember seeing an article that said in Africa there was a rifle (ak47?) for every 4 or 5 adults.
Canada and the US are by no means blameless as both contries are in the international munitions game big time.
China and Russia are famous for flogging cheap(and not so cheap) weapons to the highest bidder.
There is boatloads of that stuff floating around in the worlds weapons bazaar's.
Even if it is Chinese it could be recycled and have come from anywhere.
At least we are not being shot and blown up by weapons that WE made.
That would suck.
The weapons racket is a rotten rotten business that should be shut down.

Unfortuantely, they seldom did in the 'nam ... and you don't usually go from blood poisoning if you're shot with a lead-based bullet.

It dosne,t does it. Perhaps there,s hope for us afterall. If we can put aside our differences and work together on a worthwhile project (killing capitalists) then just maybe there will be a bright tomorrow.

Don't know about killing them - unless that happens to be the end result when they can't live out of somebody else's pocket - then blame the "welfare people".

China is doing what war profiteers have done for centuries. It's just so wrong when the money isn't greasing the complainers' palms.

The end result will be the final solution for the religions of the world, once we have eliminated the capitalist pig dogs we will eliminate the adherants of the holy dripping in blood baby jhesus followed by all the other retarded and semi retarded religiously afflicted parrisites. Of course it goes without question that I don,t advocate violence or illeagle (sick bird) activitys. Elimination as in bowel movement or natural selection caused by evolution.

You're not very efficient at it though. You seem to do better when killing your own.

WTF are you talking about concerning Ford Trucks?

As for China, if they were directly caught supplying the Taliban then they should be held accountable, but it's more than likely it's private Chinese Arms Dealers who are supplying the Taliban..

Also, Chairman Lantos of the US senate said that the USA troops [and generals] had neglected to protect Saddam's old ammo dumps, and the 'insurgents' had gotten hold of those weapons and used them against the USA troops. So, its not just IRAN, it is stupidity too.

Canada exports plenty of weapons.... when is Canada going to be held accountable for the deaths that those weapons have caused? Or does Canada only export weapons for "peaceful purposes". Hypocrites.... think before yapping about how evil China is.
