China Arming Terrorists

New intelligence reveals China is covertly supplying large quantities of small arms and weapons to insurgents in Iraq and the Taliban militia in Afghanistan, through Iran.

U.S. government appeals to China to check some of the arms shipments in advance were met with stonewalling by Beijing, which insisted it knew nothing about the shipments and asked for additional intelligence on the transfers. The ploy has been used in the past by China to hide its arms-proliferation activities from the United States, according to U.S. officials with access to the intelligence reports.

Some arms were sent by aircraft directly from Chinese factories to Afghanistan and included large-caliber sniper rifles, millions of rounds of ammunition, rocket-propelled grenades and components for roadside bombs, as well as other small arms.

The Washington Times reported June 5 that Chinese-made HN-5 anti-aircraft missiles were being used by the Taliban.

According to the officials, the Iranians, in buying the arms, asked Chinese state-run suppliers to expedite the transfers and to remove serial numbers to prevent tracing their origin. China, for its part, offered to transport the weapons in order to prevent the weapons from being interdicted.

The weapons were described as "late-model" arms that have not been seen in the field before and were not left over from Saddam Hussein's rule in Iraq.

U.S. Army specialists suspect the weapons were transferred within the past three months.

The Bush administration has been trying to hide or downplay the intelligence reports to protect its pro-business policies toward China, and to continue to claim that China is helping the United States in the war on terrorism.

John Tkacik, a former State Department official now with the Heritage Foundation, said the Chinese arms influx "continues 10 years of willful blindness in both Republican and Democrat administrations to China's contribution to severe instability in the Middle East and South Asia."
Mr. Tkacik said the administration should be candid with the American people about China's arms shipments, including Beijing's provision of man-portable air-defense missiles through Iran and Syria to warring factions in Lebanon and Gaza.

Wild Thing's comment...........

Notice that Iran's strongest allies are all Communist dictatorships (Russia, Venezuela, North Korea). And to think, Komrade Herr Klintoon traded them military technology for campaign funds. And the Bushies apologized to China after they shot down our plane. Shouldn’t it be vice versa? (And we never got the plane back, either.) And they have allowed Chinese military officials to board U.S. naval ships.

They have nuclear warheads pointed at the West Coast.

Now they’re trying to poison us with knockoff toothpaste.

Red China is our enemy, and their support for terrroists, while not at all surprising, is just one more reason we should keep their corrupt goods out of our country.

Hey, don't forget Vermont! They don't even want to be part of the US anymore!
And that's really sad.
We're losing our way and none of our elected officials are doing one damn thing about it.
Time for us Pro-Americans to step up to the plate and make our voices heard.
