Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Warns of Increasing Pressure on North Korea

Translation as follows:

Chinese Foreign Ministry Spokesperson Geng Shuang criticised the West for putting pressure on China to solve the North Korean nuclear issue alone, when speaking in Beijing, Friday.

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "In this critical moment, UN Security Council is holding Ministerial Open Conference. All the sides should fully discuss how to relieve this tension, how to maintain peace and stability of the Korean Peninsula, how to carry the propose of denuclearization in Peninsula forward and how to finally solve the 'nuclear issue' in the Peninsula. If these talks only focus on further sanctions and stepping up pressure, I think we will lose a great opportunity and it will aggravate the opposition of different sides and ideas. It probably will break all previous efforts of promoting peace."

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "I want to emphasise once again: China is not at the centre of the North Korea's nuclear issue. China is not the pusher for further tensions in the Korean Peninsula. China doesn’t hold the key to solve North Korea's nuclear issue at present. Solving the North Korea's nuclear issue has to rely on collective intelligence and joint effort from all sides. China hopes relevant parties will play proper roles and take their responsibilities. We need to work together to maintain peace in the Korean Peninsula and Asia." 

Geng Shuang, Foreign Ministry spokesperson (Mandarin): "In North Korea's nuclear issue, China and Russia have similar standpoint. Our perspective and opinion are similar as well. I think Russia has played a positive role in solving the nuclear issue in long term. In next stage, we will increase the communication and cooperation with Russia and other relevant parties. We wish nuclear issue in north Korea will be solved via talk and negotiation in a peaceful way."

Christopher Hitchens: Answers Why He Preached Against the Theocracy Belief System

Brilliant! Mr. Hitchens just gave voice to what I sincerely believe, but couldn't verbalize.

I was raised in one of those Plymouth Brethren Christian homes, where belief in the End of Times, especially the book of Revelations in the Bible was preached daily. One can't be saved by good deeds, but by being a Born Again Christian for the coming Rapture and End of Times.


As far as I'm concerned, that belief system is no different than the WahabiMuslim belief system. They both can go to hell! Evil is right!

EFF is Suing to Get List of Best Buy's Geek Squad Informants

A Best Buy Geek Squad Volkswagen New Beetle. (Photo credit: Wikipedia) I had previously covered this here in a post earlier this past January. Now the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) has announced that they are suing the FBI for the list of informants they used at Geek Squad.
The EFF also posted to their members blog the reasons why they wish to uncover these informants.

The reasoning from EFF's post:

"Sending your computer to Best Buy for repairs shouldn’t require you to surrender your Fourth Amendment rights. But that’s apparently what’s been happening when customers send their computers to a Geek Squad repair facility in Kentucky.

We think the FBI’s use of Best Buy Geek Squad employees to search people’s computers without a warrant threatens to circumvent people’s constitutional rights. That’s why we filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit today against the FBI seeking records about the extent to which it directs and trains Best Buy employees to conduct warr…
