There were more pro-Chinese supporters (there are not protestors) than pro-Tibet (western instigated) protestors on the streets but the Western media choose to provide wide coverage of the protests from these anti-groups with pro-tibet comments that were clearly one sided. The report mentioned that 5 violent Tibetans were arrested but there were rarely charged.
On the shoe throwing incident. the Cambridge’s Vice-Chancellor summed it appropriately by stating that the university is a place for considered argument and debate and not for shoe throwing. The shouting and the cursing by the Caucasian man reflects a low point in western so called civilized behavior and should be condemned to the fullest. This is not a human right. This is a disturbance of peace in a progressive society and it is only slightly better than during Europe’s medieval times when the diners shouted at each other across the table.
Mr.Wen biggest problem is to ensure that the unemployment situation in China is stabilized and that there would not result in a chaotic situation, which would not be good for the 1.3 billion residents. The financial crisis has affected every nation in the world, regardless of its size and the degree of openness in the economy.
Sino-Britain discussion in London focused more on implementing coordinated efforts and actions which might help to avert a global economic disaster and also, to weather the fallout of the crisis from each other country. This is more important than the Tibet or human right issue in China.
In Baghdad, the person throwing the shoe is an Iraqi (a resident) who has undoubtedly possesses an interest in the running of the country but. in Cambridge the trouble maker is a white Caucasian who does not even has a stake in the country. He is merely a Western human right proponent who narrowly looks at the issue and is out to create trouble or to garner fame for notoriety. What a shame!
