I noticed that there has been a few people who has put up this "Love China" sign in the MSN. Fair enough I think one should be proud of their heritage and who they are. However, that does not means I have to agree with everything that the Chinese government does.
All the government over the world make use of propaganda. Does everyone remember the Iraq war and the 45-minute WMD claim? Silly me. I was so naive to believe the British Government on this. Same thing happens with Tibet - Chinese government would like you to think that Tibet has been "well-integrated" and the trouble has nothing to do with what the Chinese Government doing out there. Hm... does anyone see any parallel here?
Don't get me wrong. I am not saying I want to renounce my heritage. But do I want to associate with a country which supports Sudan and sell arms to Zimbabwe so that Robert Mugabe can whack once the bread basket of Africa? Maybe not.
So I love China because I am a Chinese and it's my heritage. However, I do not love the Chinese Communist Government.
