Not to be an apologist for the CCP, but at least they're being up-front about it, unlike other countries that claim to not monitor or censor the internet but do it anyway...

So now we must revise Susan Sonntag's phrase. Communism has become fascism with a cartoon face.

Reminds me of US Army using violent video game as recruiting tool.

Thomas Winwood

While I don't wish to start a war over the idea, I'd like to remind Bobby to please refrain from politically-charged statements like "violent video game". It's only really "violent" to those who have trouble separating fantasy from reality.

Additionally, the version of the game the Army actually uses is substantially different from the released game - the physics are modified to make the gameplay more exciting, while the recruiting tool is significantly more realistic at the expense of gameplay. The game in its strictest sense is not the recruiting tool.

Jim Hansen

No matter how China may open to the world it is still a closed society. Foreigners are not welcomed and their extra-territorial ideas can not be acceptable to this truly ancient mind-set. Jingjing and his buddy could just as well be Boris and Natasha of the Bull-Winkle fame, they represent to the West a weird mindset and unfortunately probably our next world war enemy.

TOMMI HARIANTO
