Boycott China?

Stop me if you've heard this: an oil rich Middle East country starts selling it's oil in euros. The president of the US, as well as his administration began making false claims about non-existent
weapons programs. He seeks Congressional approval before taking the matter to the UN Security council.
If you think I'm talking about Iraq, well, you know what happens next. We take our case before the Security Council seeking sanctions, and are vetoed by France because a). they have contracts with Iraq, and b). France knows that the case made is false. Then of course, the corporate media makes a big deal of it and Bush supporters start hating France more than is necessary. French Fries become freedom fries and right wing pundits such as Bill O'Reilly call for a boycott of all things French.
Well, the same thing is happening right now with Iran. Iran, which has signed the Non-Proliferation treaty, and has allowed inspections anywhere and anytime in accordance with that treaty, is building a nuclear power plant at Bushehr. So excuse me if I don't trust the Bush administration when they can't even tell the truth about a hunting accident ? With Afghanistan under the control of the warlords and Iraq in shambles do we need to start another unwinnable war of conquest? Oh yeah, that's right, 2006 is an election year and Bush needs to look tough in the War On Terror, even though, once again, we're not fighting anyone who had anything to do with 9/11.
But this time the stumbling block in the Security Council is not France, who actually supports sanctions against Iran. (Does that mean we can stop boycotting them? Even Bill O'Reilly thinks we should get out of Iraq as "fast as humanly possible".)The stumbling block is China, which has contracts for Iranian oil. They are certain to exercize their veto when the US brings this up before the Security Council. This begs the question: Will chinese checkers become "freedom checkers"? Will Chinese take-out become "freedom take-out"? Will our fine china become "fine freedom eating ware"? Will there be a boycott of China? Or, are Americans so addicted to buying poorly made crap that supports a Communist regime, that boycotting China will be out of the question?

While I agree with your assessment that by no means should we enter Iran (barring of course they attack us or an ally)

I think you are blind to the fact that without dispute Saddam HAD and WAS actively seeking additional weapons programs. The facts continue to pour out to prove is just NOONE is talking about it (meaning msm) Whether we found them or not is irrelevant. I would reccomend a book titled 'Who Moved My Cheese'

And last time I checked The President has Congress to answer to first and foremost THEN if necessary the UN, which he did.

I am also interested in how you think they lied about the hunting accident?
Or why you think Bill O'Reilly is the authoritve voice of the conservative movement, as he certainly doesnt speak for me and any regular viewer could tell he is populist wannabe that takes the position of least resistance. He is after all no more than a circus barker like most in the entertainment industry.

Now excuse me as I go smoke a joint and get freedom eyed

Arthur Fiedler said...

Donkey Makes a valid point, but please don't go into the whole WMD liberal whine, I beg you to spare us.
China's veto is not the only thing they could use against the Bush administrations hope to invade Iran. Do you realize the size of that country, and the amount of people in there army? It makes us(USA) look like a street thug with a switch blade knife. The only face to face conflict in which we (USA)could defeat them(CHN) is a naval conflict, but I can't recall a conflict won simply by the navy.
The bottom line is, China makes all our(USA) crap, and there military is stronger then ours(USA). If they(CHN) wanted to threaten military action when we(USA) invaded or otherwise attack Iran, we(USA) will have no other option but to back downand conced to there(CHN) desire.
If you wanted to point blame on anyone it would be tough. Both parties have weakened our country to this point. If North Korea rolled over the border of South Korea there would be little we could do. Our services are just not fully manned. Is Bush Senior and Clinton to blame? Yes. Is the new Bush to blame? Just as much as the other two.
So feel safe in knowing that not only are jobs leaving our(USA) country, but we can't even win a war against anyone but a weak country. A really weak country, like the two we recently occupied.

Lew Scannon said...

So now we're the thought police, invading Iraq because Saddam was thinking of a weapons program.
we have effectively blown the country to smithereens and found no trace of any weapons program, yet you insist they exist. If they had the corporate media would have been all over it like bird shot on Dick Whittington.
As for the hunting accident, the first story out was that there was no alcohol involved, then Cheney cops to having "one beer" which, considering he is using blood thinners for his heart condition, would be enough to induce inebriation.
I don't see where I ever said Bill O'Reilly is the authoritive voice of the conservative movement, however, he is a right winger who did a). support the illegal invasion of Iraq and, b). call for the boycott on everything French.
And the last time I checked, George W, Bush feels that he's not answerable to anybody, least of all the lap dog Republican controlled Congress.
But then, I can see where your thinking could be a little cloudy.

AJ said...

The Donkey, although stoned, might be right.
There is reasonable reason to suspect that there were
WMD in Iraq and still are,
and I disagree with you Lew, respectfully, that the MSM would be "all over it".
Have they been all over other things of importance? Do you believe Black Ops really exist?

There are some that deduce that "they" are waiting to introduce said weapons as "proof" of an attack by Syria or Iran, thereby gaining the public trust, anger & enthusiam after several hundred/thousand of our soldiers die in a flash of light near the Iranian border, to finally have that coveted blank check all over again.

Lew Scannon said...

unfounded conspiarcy theories do not interest me. And the corporate media would be all over the WMD to silence the "liberal whine" about the deceptions of the Bush administration.
Ans as for black ops we should be more concerned about those carried out by our "allies".

That Damned Jezebel said...

I think the way we revisit these same arguments about Bush underscores the challenge both sides have with getting people to focus on the big picture which goes beyond this president, O Reilly, and a lot of the bullshit we spend so much time on. OReilly and Coulter and Malkin are entertainment, like the Enquirer and to a large extent they know this as all marketed acts know this. They no more think of themselves as real pundits than the Backstreet Boys could be confused with real musicians. Its pandering, and an annoying diversion from the real concerns which were brought up by Fiedler up there. Suspend the desire to rant redundantly about WMD's and consider some of the other questions. Whether we debate hypotheticals or realities on Saddam, we KNOW for a fact that China does have nuclear weapons capable of reaching us, and they have more than we thought. But its true, we can't afford to pick a fight with them, the fight will come when we pair up for sides in oil dodgeball. Then China will squeeze us dry, and all the assholes will cry about the prices, cry about how much it costs to heat their huge homes and fill up their tanks, and they will cry about all the symptoms of their disease but never actually hear the diagnosis. America is the fat lazy bastard that sucks down burger king and laments his aching bloated aorta, and blames the doctor for not being able to prescribe enough pills (AKA regulative shit) to keep him alive. Fuck both sides, and fuck sitting around talking about Fox. Thats the least of what we need to fear. Its not the shadow, its the damn beast, fellas.

AJ said...

"unfounded conspiracy theories do not interest me."

unfounded? Are you kidding?
I am not saying it is Gospel, I am suggesting a theory. If you take it as foolish, then say so.
Why would this be so hard to believe in the light of what is going on in our country and the world today?

Lew Scannon said...

I did not say "foolish", i said "unfounded". There has been talk since last summer of an attack, either here or overseas, directed at us, as an excuse to nuke Iran. I hardly think that the US would hold back Saddam's WMD to use as a prelude to an anticipatd Iran invasion, they have plenty of their own to use, and whatever they tell the corporate media happened will be reported with no investigation.
This is not about whether Saddam had WMD, it's about the fact that Iran, while well armed, is, according to our own intelligence, at least ten years from acquiring the technology to build atomic weapons. And if we attack Iran, which Bush is making every move towards doing, we will be taking on not only China, but Russia as well, for it's there power plant we'll be blowing up.
And Donkey, while you say we shouldn't invade Iran unless they attack us or our allies, what will happen when our "allies" attack Iran's plant at Bushehr first, which they have threatened to do (and is the most likely scenario), cuasing Iran to retaliate at either our "allies" or US soldiers in Iraq? Would you still support an invasion.

AJ said...

I was also one of those last year who said to others who laughed that we were going for Iran or Syria next.
I do not know about Russia, but China is in a precarious position in that it holds massive amounts of US treasuries, something they would be holding and would not rush in making their valuables worthless by taking quick action.
I agree that our alies will probably be the ones that attack first-Israel bombed Iraq's fascility 20 years ago, and now they've got a hard on for Iran.
But WMD can be anything-and in the scenario that I described it would probably be biological or gas attacks, supposedly set out by our enemies.

At any rate, what you are describing is exactly what Christian prophecy says will happen: a major war in the Middle East involving many countries.

Left of Center said...

How many other "bad" leaders were thinking about making/using WMD? Lets see..there is George Bush. He is actually using them in Iraq. Via contamination he is also using it against Americans. it's called depleted uranium.

tp said...

But others if we consider 'prophecy' predict an Asian nation. There are many predictions, and many of them are plausible. Many possible routes to our eventual extinction, whether by the hand of one nation or another, no matter who starts it, we are at a point of no eturn and destruction will end it. Not diplomacy or peace, because many are not fearful of the end of the planet, they think that God will scoop them up or something.DU is an important part of the discussion but people mince words about what is a weapon, etc. DU is a crime against all of civilization.

Lew Scannon said...

Yes, it would seem that all the Bush talking points to justify the invasion of Iraq, saddam uses chemical weapons, saddam tortures his people, saddam has ties to alQaeda could actually be made towards the Bush administration.
The Iran-Syria argument has been going on between my brother and I since last year as well, with my brother certain we were going to Syria first. China has a basket of currencies to which it currently pegs the yuan, the dollar being the most abundant. And they are in a position to tkae over after the US has squandered all it's resources.

The simple one buys what he's told to buy ... to paraphrase Billy Bragg ... until the consumer is liberated from the TV ... boycott on a large scale is out of the question ... are there enough non-chinese goods around for even limited consumption by everyone to switch over?

I misread your O'Reilly point, but I stand by my evaluation of the clown. Was watching him the other night and guess I needed an outlet to unleash on him.

To answer your next question. I would support and honor any treaties that come into play, however if it is Israel involved I have a feeling we wouldnt be needed.

Arthur Fieldler said...

I fell like I'm at a ladie's social. No one( other then FOSCO)can see what is in front of them.
I'll try to paraphrase it for the liberal/stupid.

They could own our ass' easily if we went head to head, and after that you leisure bloggers would be spending your down time lugging nuts and bolts for the latest product. You think you hate your job now, well just wait.
In my world, I don't care if we(USA) invade Iran, as long as we win. The only way to do so is to insure that China and Russia(not a real worry) stay out of the way.
The good plan is to follow those who wish our(USA) country to remain strong. The bad plan is to follow those(Muslims) who wish for us to weaken.
You can make a big deal about Civil rights, Abortion, The Death Penalty, and the rest of the less important matters that we waste time and money on; but your choice of sides in this fight "brewing" might very well decide if you are even around to record the history of the event in question.
My point is this. " Shit, or get off the pot". If you want to support the enemy ( Islam) then just do it. If you want to fight for the survival of what we(USA) have grown to love, then stand there and do it.
I am calling for commitment. Choose sides, meet your team, and be prepared to fight.
The only "thought police" that matter is ours. Are we the "thought police"? Yes, we are Lew, in times of conflict we are allowed to pull up our "Tea Dresses" and occasionally do some work. I apologize in advance for any degregation of social manners that may occur in this process, but I assure you that you will still be pissed off. We sleep in peace at night because strong men stand ready to do violence on our behalf; what you need to ask yourself is whether you are willing to be one of those strong men,and stand ready to fight, or one of the ladie's wondering why there tea party has been posponed. Either way, weak or strong, you need to choose a side.

Anonymous said...

Gee, thank you arthur. America should just go around blowing the fuck out of every country that has the natural resources we need because we squandered ours. kill every body who stands in our way because our way of conspicuous consumption is more important than another country's sovereignity. We shouldn't try to change our entirely fucked up way of living, we should force our will on other nations, not because it's Constittutional, but because we've grown fat and lazy and addicted to creature comforts. It all makes sense to me now, we should kill all their leaders and force all the to people to convert to Christianity, so they can all open presents on Christmas! Oh, how blind I've been!
America should continue it's course as a debtor nation, we can pass as many bad checks as we want, as long as rule with might, no one would dare cash them in because if they tries we invent some flimsy reason for invading them and seizing control of their natural resources.We should rule the world because our way of torture and enslavement is much more desirable than theirs because our slaves are so deluded they think they are free.
It was so silly not to see that this isn't a tea party, it's a sporting event-you have to pick a team, something we've been conditioned to do all our lives. Who do you like in the super bowl, the American flagwavers or the Islamic ululaters? It doesn't matter which side you pick as long as you don't question the game.

fosco said...

I do agree on China, but do not view "Islam' as the enemy. I think religion and government each screw around with things entirely too much, but that doesn't really enter into THIS discussion for the sake of clarity. I don't think choosing sides means choose the 'US against Islam'. A nation and a religion are not comparable, there are Muslims right here. There are Muslims in the military. Muslims that died on 9-11. It serves the interests of our government to overplay the war on terror but minimize the other issues. 9-11 was terrible no matter who you blame, but World War Three because of it? Such debt? They really ARE bringing down America! With some guys trained on monkey bars. Think about what they have done here, our spending.I don't see where turning it into a global religious war is the point here. Some feel it is that way already, but their extremist don't represent the majority of their members any more than Pat Robertson speaks for most Christians. Just as OReilly doesn't speak for REAL conservatives.

Just suppose, it didn't have to be about sides? Suppose we understand that in the world there will always be people who have an extreme response to our way of life or someone else's, and that in the world we will continue to have violence. But we don't have to become obsessed with one evil out of a palette. When terrorists permit people to decide things based on irrational fears, we are giving up too much control. What side? You mean the side that nukes first? OR the side that nukes second? What side do you mean?

Left of Center said...

Arthur Fieldler sounds like the average NASCAR fan, all blood and guts, killem' all and let God sort em' out. Well Arthur, I bet deep down your a real pussy, and have never put your money where your mouth is. Many of us “Liberal/ Stupid” people have been talking tough about China for along time. Unlike the lockstep, Brown Shirt Bush supporters. We all have a lot of different opinions. There are a lot of weak, sniveling lefties, and they make me as sick as you do. Sometimes being tough means being able to take a punch, as well as give one. If I have to take a hit for supporting civil rights in the face of danger, then I will do so. Personally I think as far as religions go that Islam is a nasty piece of work. I have studied it, and have read the entire Koran. It doesn't take much twisting of what is written in the Koran to justify many atrocities. So I agree with you to the extent that Islam itself is part of the problem. I could go on and on about the practice of modern Christianity as well, but that's another time. As you may tell, I don't fit your Liberal mold. As far as sleeping peacefully, I would sleep better knowing that our foreign policy made us loved in the world, not hated. I would sleep better knowing we didn't have a brain damaged narcissist in the Oval Office. Arthur, thank you for your time, you may now go back to tuning your banjo.

"Islam is a nasty piece of work. I have studied it, and have read the entire Koran."

My wife is Islamic, and actually, without realizing it, you know her views pretty well. She is quite committed to peace organizing, and eradicating some of the myths about Islam that many people believe. She converted, and has been to Mecca and raises our children in the Islamic faith. But understandably has a hard time revealing in these forums that she is Islamic.I don't think that Islam is without its baggage, but please consider such statements and perhaps give more details about what you mean to say on this. I ask not to be divisive but perhaps I can convince her to speak to some of your points. regards, Ben

Lew Scannon said...

There is good and bad in any religion, and to say that all Muslims are the same is the same as saying that all Christians are as narrow minded and hate filled as Jerry Falwell and Pat Robertson.
It's the religious leaders who twist the words of any religion to serve their private agendas that make the world a dangerous place.

Left of Center said...

I said I beleive believe that about Islam, I did not say all it's practitioners are bad. There is a book you should perhaps read, it spells out alot about Islam, that many people refuse to believe, or are to afraid to think about. It's called The Politicaly Incorrect Guide to Islam (and the Crusades) by Robert Spencer. An example: Jesus said: "Blessed are you when men revile you, and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejioce and be glad. For your reward is in heaven." The Qur'an says: ..and slay them wherever ye find them, and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter." All enduring religions hold some universal truths, however I don't have to believe that all religion are created equal just to be politicaly correct

RE: While I agree with your assessment that by no means should we enter Iran (barring of course they attack us or an ally)

Well, we agree on that much. Sadly I think there may be people out there who are secretly HOPING for an incdient so that we can invade Iran. It won't be a picnic. No need to expect the quick, initial success that we had in Iraq. Their society is actually ordered and more disciplined than Iraq was. Did they not attack in suicide waves during the Iran Iraq War?

I'm a little curious as to how we would actually WIN a conflict with China. I think military history shows us that you can't win a war through bombing campaigns. That said, China is a rising superpower, not the paper tiger some people think it is.

I just don't see a successful military solution to the China problem. If anyone has one please share it with us, because I'm more than curious as to what is going through some people's minds out there.

fosco said...

The solution to China is to keep letting them buy our economy to dissuade them from wanting to destroy it.

Left of Center said...

Not withstanding my earlier unpopular comment.. China has a couple big problems, that would come up during a war. 1. They have little or no domestic energy resources, 2. Even though they are a large country, they have little land to farm in ratio to the number of people they need to feed. 3. Their navy would be crippled very early in the war leaving them unable to import fuel and resources. 4. Our anti signal technology would cripple their communications. China for the time being is a paper tiger, but that could change rapidly.. keep buying at Walmart.

tp said...

Hey LOC, could you say more about the anti-signal technology? I heard mixed information, and admit I am not technically inclined.

Its not that its unpopular, but like all religions- there are good aspects and bad. And I think they all have some bad. Maybe they have some good. I am not very religious. But I am tolerant and acceot that some people feel differently about their faith. I can deal with that. You can pull out wacky texts though and demonize it all I suspect. No wonder so many wars are fought about it.look, man, you're just giving your opinion/view. Its not about popularity. If I say my wife is against abortion, does it mean we shouldn't exchange views about choice? I don;t think any of us are about saying what is popular. There are different views here. Most of us would be unpopular in a crowd I think.

Left of Center said...

Our military uses information management to win wars. that means keeping our communications up, as well as taking the enemies down. There are many types of communications but here are several ways we do it. 1. Thea easiest is to take out wired communications. This is done by bombing telecommunication centers and using special forces to disable other means within the target country. 2. Internet blocking, misdirection, and hacking. You may not know it but we are in a cyber war right now with China, and middle eastern entities. 3. focused microwave,laser and radio technology to disrupt field radio communications. 4. and finally electro magnetic bombs. These when set off will fry any electronic device in a large area.

tp said...

I just wonder about the ways the students learn things here then leave, or the ways multinational technology firms answer to security issues. Things like that. I knew many people from China in technology programs here or who worked for software companies. The more global these companies are the harder it will be to stop people from getting their hands on information. Even some of these supposed'terrorist' countries, have students that come here for college and are in high demand in some cases and even work for the military on projects. Wonder about all that.

Well, Nixon went to China first right? Then Clinton did some stuff and the right howled like it was the end of the earth. Then Bush borrowed billions of dollars from them , and let them trade with us for a pitance. We all shop at Walmart, we all want cheap shit to fill our homes. We're all to blame. it's estimated that China executes about 10,000 people per year. Mostly in fields with bullets to the backs of their heads. But they make inexpensive toasters, so keep shopping!

Lily said...

You're right, LOC, we are all to blame. Like Kvatch's post on the mortgage industry too, at Blognonymous. Yes, predatory lenders exploit people. But people also like to live beyond their means and buy what they cannot afford. If they see a way to get more 'instant gratification' they will. Same with cheap stuff, people need not think about where it comes from. People only consider getting more crap for less money. Then everyone needs a bigger house for it all. (Even more oil dependency to heat them)Personally, I find junk to be a burden- more to move around, organize, store.. and more to end up in a landfill because its such junk. I won't say I have never stepped foot in a Wal Mart but it is very rare (like if it was the only thing open and I needed a kitten cookie jar or pencils with flamingo heads) I avoid it if possible. I like small stores and things that last a while. Not plastic sneakers and itchy linens. They can keep that stuff. I would rather see some of their employees make a little more. A few posts back the Wal mart issue was bandied so I won't rehash it all again!

I think any country that wants to develop WMD should ask our permission first. Now if you are a country we like like Israel we'll rubbers stamp the deal. If you are a country like India which was doing most of its business with Russia and some of the European countries we'll initially oppose it and then smile upon you when we decide to like you again. The fact that you have tensions with your neighbor and could get into a war, no biggie. Oh yeah, Pakistan, we'll treat you like India. Oh hey, yeah don't worry about the technology and parts you were spreading around to other countries. Just be mindful that is our gig and don't tread so heavily in this proliferation gig. That's ours too. And you miscreant nations. Axis of evil doers....

Many eyebrows would be raised when we talk of a Muslim Jihad against China. When did that happen, we never hear about Muslim rule in China. Yes there was a Muslim invasion of China. As there was of Persia, India, Byzantium, Spain, Balkans, etc. None of these countries had ever attacked a Muslim nation to bring about a retaliatory Muslim invasion. They has all been invaded by Muslims to compel the inhabitants to embrace Islam. The Dawat-ul-Islam (Invitation to embrace Islam) was sent out to the king of the neighboring country, and if they did not submit to one of the two conditions viz: “Embrace Islam or Pay the Jaziya or face a Muslim invasion,, then they had to face a Muslim jihadi onslaught. China was one of those counties who had been sent an invitation by the founder of Islam himself Mohammed-ibn-Abadullah to embrace Islam. This invitation had also been sent to three other kings of Zoroastrian Persia, of Christian Byzantine and to a king of Hindu Kerala in India. The Chinese emperor did not quite understand the meaning of the ultimatum and thought that these were messengers from a far away land bringing a spiritual message. The Chinese had to come face to face with the real danger of Islam a century later when in the year 751, they had to march to the borders of their empire in Eastern China to check an Arab invasion launched from Persia.

For much of the early 700s, the Chinese Empire, under the T'ang dynasty, was successful in its foreign affairs. They recovered crucial lands they had previously lost and stabilized the Tibetan frontier. They secured trade routes through central Asia and contained threats from the Khitan and Hsi peoples. In the late 740s, Chinese troops claimed lordship over Kabul and Kashmir of India. But their string of victorious campaigns could not last forever, as China discovered at Talas River in 751.

Islam's widespread aggression through Persia and Central Asia came into collusion with China's Westward expansion into Central Asia. This led to the meeting of the two expansionist powers in Central Asia which finally erupted into pen warfare at the Battle at Talas River, the only battle between Arab Muslim forces and the army of the Chinese Empire. The Chinese troops were led by Kao Hsien-chih, who had been successful in battles in Gilgit and in the Farghana region. The Muslims were led by Ziyad ibn Salih, who was deputy to Abu Muslim (a Persian convert to Islam), with a band of 40,000 Ghazis (warriors crazed by Islam’s promise of wealth, women or martyrdom in heaven where the ghazis would be served by the many houris that the Terrorist Manifesto – the Quran). These Ghazis came to China to wage a Jihad on the Chinese. When the Arab army marched from the south towards Talas. River, the Chinese general Kao (of Korean origin), decided to resist the Muslim invasion and marched towards Aulie-Ata on the Talas river with 100,000 Chinese troops in cavalry and infantry divisions.

In the Battle of the Talas river, the Qarluq Betrayal led to the defeat of the Chinese at Arab hands

On July 10th 751 AD the Arab and Chinese armies took to the field in Aulie-Ata on the backs of the Talas river. The Chinese cavalry seemed to initially overwhelm the Arab cavalry, but the Arabs had worked out a deal with one of the many Turkish contingents of the Chinese army viz., the Qarluq Turks, by promising them wealth and freedom in return for embracing Islam and betraying their Chinese masters. The Qarluqs who held a grudge against the Chinese for having reduced them to vassalage, viewed this as an opportunity to throw off the Chinese yoke by using the Arabs and had planned to later throwing off the Arab yoke as well and regaining their freedom from both the Chinese and the Arabs. The Qarluqs later played the main role in converting other Turkish tribes notably the Seljuks to Islam.

At the Battle of the Talas river, the Qarluqs betrayed their own people the Chinese and went over to the Arabs

At the battle of the Talas river where the Arab and the Chinese armies clashed, the Qarluqs who were a part of the Chinese army, opened a breach in their own ranks and allowed the Arabs to ford the river and helped them to encircle a part of the Chinese infantry butchering it to man. The Qarluq archers then surrounded their paymaster the general of the Chinese army Kao and shot him down. Now the Arabs followed their heinous practice of sticking the d\severe head of an enemy and parading it before the enemy army. The Chinese not being used to such grisly war tactics, fell into confusion and disarray, not knowing who had betrayed them, and their General Kao. They broke ranks and fell into confusion, shaking the Chinese center, which was rapidly assaulted by the Arab heavy cavalry and destroyed. Thus due to Muslim subterfuge and savagery the infallible Chinese war machine gave way under combined assault of the Arabs and the traitor Qarluqs, and they faced a heavy rout. From behind the treacherous Qarluqs fell upon the Chinese animals, baggage trains and supplies carrying away all they could and receded back into the steppe.

The Arabs rounded up tens of thousands of Chinese and their non-Qarluq Turk allies and took them to Samarqand from where Abu Muslim sent them to Baghdad and Damascus to be sold as slaves, each worth a dirham. One Chinese survivor mentions being kept as cattle in the Arab prison camps. Abu Muslim and Ziyad made huge financial gains out of this slave trade and used it to pay their armies. More importantly the Arabs forced the Turk and Chinese prisoners to teach them the art of making siege trains and catapult machines, which the Islamized Turks were to use successfully in their attacks on the Byzantine cities.

The Qarluq Turks aimed at playing the Chinese and the Muslims against each other to gain their own independence

The Qarluq Turks wanted independence from the Chinese so they made a pretence of embracing Islam to obtain Arab support to defeat the Chinese. The Qarluqs had planned to later throw off the Arab yoke as well by repudiating Islam and regaining their freedom from both the Chinese and the Arabs. But little did the Qarluqs realize that in working out a deal with the Arabs, while they would succeed in throwing off the Chinese yoke, they would have to bring themselves into the fold of Islam, from which there was no escape. The Qarluqs were forced to remain Muslim and whenever any of them reneged their Islamic faith, they were put to death while the luckier among them were enslaved by the Arabs and Persian Muslims.

The later history of the Qarluqs was as Muslims who resigned themselves to remaining as satellites of the Arabs after having thrown off the Chinese yoke and with it also the only possibility of liberating themselves from the grip of Islam. It was this devious conversion of the Quarluqs that was actually a pretense to throw off the Chinese yoke on the Turks, that led to the conversion of the greater Turkish nation to Islam in the next three centuries from 750 to 1050.

The Turks who had retained aggressively their freedom from their neighbors the Chinese, and the Zoroastrian Persians for more than a millennium, finally began succumbing to Islam due to a tactical pretense of the Qarluqs, one of their important clans to pretend to embrace Islam for securing Arabs support and throwing off Chinese suzerainty. A deal that proved costly for Turkish independence that was now permanently enslaved into the prison of Islam.

B>The fallout of the Battle of the Talas river

While the battle in itself was of minor importance, its ramifications on the future were very significant. The Arabs lost out on an opportunity to extend their Islamic influence throughout China and make China a Muslim country. On the other hand the T'ang (in China) lost a good amount of power and their westward advance was halted. But the Muslim success at the Talas river did not carry over, although the Muslim armies were victorious. But the more significant fallout was the arousal of the Turko-Mongols against the Muslims. The gradual bitterness that was planted among the Mongoloid peoples (Turks, Mongols and Chinese), since the fist Muslim attacks on Turkish lands from the middle of the seventh century, and which were taken to the border of China proper in 751 at the Battle of the Talas river, provoked a violent backlash of the Mongols against the Muslims. After the victory at the Talas river, the Muslims faced increasing resistance from the Chinese and their Turko-Mongol allies. So the Muslims decided to concentrate on consolidating their position in Central Asia and converting the Turks to Islam. Hence they postponed their eastward invasion into China proper. This decision of the Arabs in 751, was to save China from Islam, as in the following centuries, they Mongol who belonged to the wider Chinese (Mongoloid) nation gathered sufficient strength to launch a counter attack against the Muslims from 1200 onwards that culminated in the sack and destruction of Baghdad, by Hulagu Khan, the leader of the Mongols.

But the Muslim victory on the Talas river had its fallout in the conversion of the Chinese border population to Islam, the Qarluq Turks were followed by the Ughirs and the Hui Chinese (an branch of the Han Chinese) into accepting the faith imposed on them by the Arabs. The Chinese who converted to Islam gradually gave up their rich Chinese heritage and became Arabized, although they continued to look Mongoloid like the Chinese. Today the descendants of the Hui, Ughirs, and Qarluq populate the Westernmost Chinese province of Xinjiang and are agitating for a separate Islamic state called Eastern Turkestan. Many of them are sympathetic to the Al Qaeda and their attempts to secede from China have been so far successfully resisted by the Chinese.

No comment. Read a Chinese blog in Chinese, something to do with Martin Lee, something to do with Sam Rainsy of Cambodia, something to do with the very issues in this blog comment column. It's a worth-it thing to do. Talk to your friends sometime, not your enemies. Blogs like 'Lose the Noose' have a lot of counterparts in China and Asia. Let me put it this way: If an Asian person arrived in the US, would one actually want them to get lost in CIA documentation, to get lost watching Fox News as they tried and struggled to deal with the right, or wouldn't it make more sense to get right down to brass tacks with blogs like this one? Wouldn't it be sensible to skip the propaganda and 'get with the program'? In English, in this hypothetical case? Or in Chinese, in this actual case?

Totally agree with what you're saying, actually.

Arthur Fiedler:

the only thing I can say to you sir, is just exactly how would China get this massive army of theirs over here? that's not what scares me about China, why in the world would they want to destroy their meal ticket? and why would we want to destroy them? we can't seem to do without the cheap crap that they make.

fosco said...

Does the size of their army matter when they can hit us with nukes? We didn't bring massive ground troops into japan, did we? So why would we retro back and expect something like Normandy? Population matters when it comes to a willingness to sacrifice a few k citizens in an expected retaliatory response. But consider the financial impact of a nuke on New York? LA? DC? Now I don't think it will come to that because we will both want to protect our interests. And we DO buy their crap. BUT: consider our economy when we feel the crunch of dwindling oil, inflation, and our bad economic choices. When our spending comes back truly to bite us in the ass. What happens when we are NOT financially able to continue buying their products with the trade deficit the way it is? When foreign owned notes come in for collection?People forget that the depression rattled our country and it was not that long ago relatively speaking, then we were an industrial giant. Now, we are a giant but it is increasingly based on hubris and smokescreens. We actually make very little now domestically compared to imports and even technology and service sectors are going elsewhere. We don't want isolationism but we don't want to remain competitive either, that would have required interference with corporate America, something we say we do not want here, thats for communists. Hey, outsourcing is all part of the capitalism we love. So, you make your bed you must lie in it. These models are applied inconsistently, and they do not consider the global nature of modern economies.

Lew Scannon said...

Arthur fielder,
Of course in your listing of all the horrible crimes committed by Muslims, you negelct to list the horrible crimes committed by Christians against their own. Things like chopping off their babies arms, or stabbing their children to death because they think the world is coming to an end, or drownong them one by one in the bathtub....these are the acts of Christian fanatics.

lily said...

No Lew, these are the acts of psychotic people with often severe mental illness, or perhaps in some cases people using that as a defense. Psychotic and delusional thinking often revolve around prominent cultural themes, of which religion is one.Years ago when I worked at one of the old style psychiatric facilities (once housing over 50,000 patients) it was very common to see fixations with Jesus, Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, sin, satan,Presidents, Manson, Hitler, etc.
One woman thought that her feces were drowning messiahs, placed in her by God, and she had to save them. This is not the same kind of behavior, is all I am saying.

My point is that we cannot confuse delusional behaviors rooted in pathology with the teachings of religion. These people did not commit these acts in the name of Christianity, categorially, many of the horrific crimes you refer to are perpetrated by people who are/were psychotic, but of course thats a case by case question. I don't think you can use these as examples of religion as the causal basis. Now a person who is taught that killing an abortion provider is good because it will mean lives saved for the unborn IS using a religious basis to rationally justify a murderous act in the name of faith. This does not mean all people of that faith would agree the rationale has been appropriately applied, but the crimes you mentioned were not of the same nature.

Mr Accountable said...

To reiterate, no comment.

The Margaret Cho Metaphor:

Supposing megastar Margaret Cho had decided to spend all day wrassling with Bertha Buttner on Fox News instead of getting right into the culture and becoming a megastar? So beloved by her fans. There wouldn't be a Margaret Cho, that's what.

Raised in America on Dylan and Parliament Funkadelic, Americans have an easy time dealing with the American Right. One would have to have been raised on Hound Dog and Yellow Magic Orchestra to be able to deal with the Japanese Right, in this example.

Do you get what I'm saying? In an nutshell, where are these Asian liberal blogs that match up to this one and the others? It would take a spoon ful of sugar to make the medicine go down, as it were, and one doesn't see the sugar. So the criticism comes across as slightly - gasp - racist, despite the various bloggists and commentators best sincere efforts.

If its worth bringing up as a boycott issue its worth getting in touch with people in Asia whose parents were the Studs Terkels, Norman Mailers and Bella Abzugs of their day, just like the liberal scene here.

Its just slightly skewed and unsupported and boycott talk risks alienation of liberal Asian friends. McTrixie is actually a little worried about this.

Still agree with what you're saying and doing, 100%.


fosco said...

Do you think Lew was being a little bit sarcastic with the boycott notion, likening it to the French Freedom Fries? I took it that way but I could be wrong. Like most assumptions that come in here on a daily basis, you assume nobody here has ever had contact with Asian people. The blog issue is hard to follow, I cannot read Chinese for example and further, there are variations- my one friend speaks Cantonese. We are racists because we may or may not read blogs by liberal counterparts in Asia? Do you read blogs by everyone all over the world? The Chomsky-children of Gaza? I think I missed your criticism big time.
