Guys this article is entirely fake. Kissinger does not write in bad English!
Guys this article is entirely fake. Kissinger does not write in bad English!
I am talking about the English part. Do you honestly think that a veteran diplomat like Kissinger write such bad English? Come on!
I do not think my English is that bad. If it was, then I apologize. According to this, I wrote at a 9th grade level, which is a bit better than the average student here.

“In 2012, China is facing (weak sentence: should say "China faces") a new leadership transition. Decisions have already been made. (comment: choppy sentences and unnecessary use of passive voice) Although instability (instability of what?) is possible, this (this refers to what? ambiguous) is an unknown variable, but China's internal "software" (No idea what this means. Need reference.) determines the fate (very undiplomatic choice of words. It is too absolute) of the world and the US (In formal reports, one should always say "the United States" in full)."
Don't worry I am not criticizing your English level. I am just evaluating the writing with a professional standard.
I agree with you and I even go one step further. The original English version, which translated into the Chinese version that posted here, must be bogus. It's unlikely for Kissinger, at this stage of his life, to change course and muddles in what is China's internal affairs. This is below him.
A few days ago I also saw a thread posted in this forum about him and India. Could that be a scam too?
There are some credibilities to the article regardless of the source or whether it is written in "professional standards" or not.
When you read the article as a stand alone piece of writing, the following descriptions are actually happening in geopolitics targeting China:
"We must support separatism and instability in China's western regions. At the same time, we must gain support among our European and Asian allies to speak out against China's human rights situation and direct specific criticism towards the human rights violations in Chongqing. China's leaders think we're idiots. They think that the South China Faction (a faction made up of liberals and capitalists) and a few liberal papers like South China Morning Post can distract the US from China's reality."
Thank you Fairandunbiased for bringing the article to the fore.

You can't do anything without debt these days. He also attracted a 7 billion dollar investment from Samsung that just got transferred to Xi'an, which would've easily been made back but now Chongqing lost all that money and Acer invested to create the largest unified computer manufacture, logistics and research center in all of China in Chongqing. Damn, this guy must be so fking evil to have attracted billions in investment even as he was reducing the wealth gap. His government lost money, the people of Chongqing made money.
He must've been fking evil when he was Minister of Commerce too I mean he only presided over the greatest expansion of the Chinese economy in all of history, no big deal, he's an evil Cultural Revolution guy that's too damn dumb and evil to see the error of his ways you should get a job from the Heritage Foundation.
Know why Africa doesn't attract foreign investors except to take their resources and use their cheap labor, while Norway attracts investors even though it has very high wages? Because Norway doesn't have a Gini index of 50+ and is a fair, equitable society.
Bo Xilai wanted Chongqing to be like Norway.
The neocons want all of China to be like Africa.
So you think Shenzhen is like Africa? Shanghai is like Africa?
Chongqing is not Norway okay? Norway has vast oil and mineral production that it gets money from. What does Chongqing have? Overloading yourself with debt for no production purpose is exactly what Mao did for the "great leap forward". Do you endorse that, too? Europe's social welfare model emerged only after the Europeans working extremely hard and low wage for a long time after world war 2, and even that is not sustainable evident in light of the recent debt crisis. Look at Greece. Bo would turn Chongqing into much poorer version of Greece.
Attracting foreign investment from Samsung? Great. First he killed off all the private Chinese companies, and then brought a foreign one to save his face. This won't fool anyone. All his crimes can compile a very long list and I have no intention to post them here.
Right now I am just happy that he is gone, and hopefully along with all of his backings and cronies (and you probably know who I am talking about).
Know who put us in the most debt? Your heroes Jiang Zemin and Zhu Rongji. You know who borrowed the most money (of course, not from their own people, from the rest of the country)? Shenzhen and Shanghai.
What's wrong with Greece? Why does every nation have to be Germany? China is much bigger than the EU in both area and population. There's gonna be Greeks, and there's gonna be Italians, and there's gonna be Germans. We in the interior care about quality of life, safety and recreation, and as long as there's enough jobs and money to go around, we're fine. In the past few years, immigration away from Chongqing has decreased dramatically. People vote with their feet.
He killed off private companies? Last I checked, private companies in Chongqing like Li Fan Motors are making record profits. It helps business when you kill off mafia bosses that shake you down for money all the time. And even if he did, why is it wrong to kill off low tech copying private companies that use the people as slaves? There is almost no innovation by private companies in China. The most high tech companies in China are all state owned, with the exception of 2: Huawei and ZTE, and even ZTE is state sponsored and was founded by the Ministry of Aerospace. He gave struggling state owned enterprises money so they could innovate and restructure, and they did. Wang Yang is also killing off low tech copying private companies in Guangdong right this minute.
Chongqing's economy grew at a record pace during his office, and that is undeniable. All the debt he incurred would've been paid back within 5 years.
60% of Shanghai is owned by the government, sorry. Its exactly like Singapore, with 4x lower wages.
And just one more thing: Bo Xilai was Minister of Commerce for 4 years. The guy that controls trade policy for the entire nation. Economic growth was up, debt was down, during his administration. He is no idiot and his track record proves it.
Typical Yank mentality! I think it would be a good idea to take their brain cells out of their casings and send them for detailed psychological analyses! We can then identify and dispose off the rogue cells in those Yanky brains so that they start thinking like ordinary peace loving humans beings!We must support separatism and instability in China's western regions.
This article is definitely from kissinger. Kissinger and zbigniew brezinski are 2 of the smartest people that understand china and Chinese history. They like china but they will never allow china to overtake American power.
The only way anyone can stop chinas rise is to collapse china from within. When china is united, it's very tough to stop china. But when china was divided for hundreds of years, foreigners exploited china.
America cannot use military force against china, china is too strong to risk military clash. America's only hope is to use NGOs and western journalist to divide china from within like how the west tried against Vladimir Putin recently.
China cannot be controlled like Japan or south Korea. So they will try to contain china and cause internal conflict.
Chinese model succeeding is a another threat to the west as most are starting to question western capitalism.
Bo xilai is a true Chinese patriot. His model was successful. He could unite people and gain support from the people.
China must get rid of foreign NGOs and western journalists out of china. They are both western tools to collapse governments around the world.
Kissinger should never be trusted. Anyone trusting foreigners are extremely gullible people.
I support Bo xilai.
Chang'an Automobile Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Note: Changan Motors alone makes up 10% of all vehicles manufactured in China. If Chang'an was a country, it would be the 13th biggest automaking nation in the world.Also known as Chana, the company is currently one of the "top 4" Chinese automakers along with Dongfeng Motor, FAW Group, and Shanghai Automotive Industry Corporation. Although this datum only allowed the company to achieve fourth place, in terms of production, Chang'an made more than 1,837,000 whole vehicles in 2011.
They attained record profits and came out with an electric vehicle during Bo Xilai's administration. So much for killing of private enterprise.
Lifan Group - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chongqing - Wikipedia, the free encyclopediaLifan Group, or Lifan Industry (Group) Company (SSE: 601777) (Chinese: 力帆实业（集团）股份有限公司) is a privately owned Chinese motorcycle and automobile manufacturer. Automobile manufacture only began in 2005, with license built microvans and a small sedan developed by Lifan themselves.
Based in Chongqing, compact sedans, microvans, and hatchbacks are among its offerings. The company was ranked the 88th largest in China in 2009. Abroad, Lifan may be best known for the small passenger cars it sells in developing overseas markets but it also makes small dirt bike engines, entry-level motorcycles, mini-vehicles, and small and large commercial trucks. Other interests include manufacture of sports shoes and winemaking.
Lifan's 2009 automobile sales were a modest 43,000, but the company still managed to place as China's third largest exporter of cars. 2010 production capacity was estimated to be near 300,000, twice what it had been in 2006. Production capacity figures may consider whole vehicles and engines as discrete.
Chongqing is China's third largest centre for motor vehicle production and the largest for motorcycles. In 2007, it had an annual output capacity of 1 million automobiles and 8.6 million motorcycles. Leading makers of cars and motor bikes includes China's fourth biggest automaker; Changan Automotive Corp and Lifan Hongda Enterprise. The municipality is also one of the nine largest iron and steel centres in China and one of the three major aluminium producers. Important manufacturers include Chongqing Iron and Steel Company and South West Aluminium which is Asia's largest aluminum plant.
Recently, there has been a drive to move up the value chain by shifting towards high technology and knowledge intensive industries resulting in new development zones such as the Chongqing New North Zone (CNNZ). Chongqing's local government is hoping through the promotion of favorable economic policies for the electronics and information technology sectors, that it can create a 400 billion RMB high technology manufacturing hub which will surpass its auto industry and account for 25% of its exports.
