    Default china arming terrorists?

    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. U.S. officials have openly criticized Iran for the arms transfers but so far there has been no mention that China is a main supplier.
    Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates said Wednesday that the flow of Iranian arms to Afghanistan is "fairly substantial" and that it is likely taking place with the help of the Iranian government.
    Defense officials are upset that Chinese weapons are being used to kill Americans. "Americans are being killed by Chinese-supplied weapons, with the full knowledge and understanding of Beijing where these weapons are going," one official said.
    The arms shipments show that the idea that China is helping the United States in the war on terrorism is "utter nonsense," the official said.

    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.

    A spokesman for the Chinese Embassy did not return telephone calls seeking comment.

    Though, almost all of the Talibans' equipment were supplied directly by the US. Back when they were the lesser evil, when compared to the Soviets. This is public record stuff: Watch Rambo 3. Rambo helps the "good" talibans fight the "evil" Soviets.

    There goes Capitalism again; we should of given MacArthur the go-ahead to use tactical nuclear missiles on China and invade it when we were in North Korea at the time. A pretty big statement to say, but this is what we got today.

    Back then in the Cold War administrations like Kennedy, Nixon, Reagen heard about this they would go to Defcom-2 and ensure full military preparations and threaten to go into Iran and all that, today the government is so iffy, if any of that is true that makes me want to scream. Challenge the damn Communists in China and have the U.N inspect every single aircraft and frigate landing in the Middle East. Back from my War Moral's thread, some whom I am in league believe Oil is what driven us to Iraq but to conclude this "theory" whether true or not about China exporting weaponry to Iraq, we would not risk trading with a Communist country, our worst enemy politically to ensure free flow of goods? Only the Corporations like the Boeing airline get the riches from their. I wanna move to Europe.

    But hey look out I remember hearing reports about Cuba could find a massive reserve of crude oil underneath its shores meaning a complete "disillusion" of embargoes we have upon it and turning it into the next Saudi Arabia but I like spanish people so go Cuba. Muchos gracias senor Fidel. Not trying to derail Guza, just sharing the attitude of our greedy government.

Cuba wasted no time, dividing the 74,000 square mile (120,000 square kilometer) area into 59 exploration blocks, and then welcoming foreign oil conglomerates with offers of production-sharing agreements.

    You would think they ran out by now, between the Soviet's and us American's. The biggest thing we gave them was lock-on missile launchers like Stinger's if I am correct to knock out the Soviet's superb attack helicopters (Hinds) that was tearing them apart in the mountains.

    Personally, I think that this 'threat' is a load of bull.

    Now when you think about it, I could believe it not real either SGI, but I have faith in the Army individuals in Iraq, but reports can become "mininterpreted" or sources could come from anywhere else, even another country but China has been known for its, absorption of countries like Tibet, wishes to absorb Taiwan and I think Vietnam as well. For such a imperialistic nation, its hard to go by your logic to.

    I'd imagine the US would have given them more than enough to last them for a while. I mean, they didn't just need to survive the soviet attack, but also be able to defend against future attacks.

    Eh, I will wait and see where this leads, which is probably to very little because of international trade interests. Big corportations put pressure on politicians just to make a buck. *sigh*
