News of the Day (February 21)

Enlightened Comment of the Day: Today's winner is Qing Ya (Epoch Times) form reminding readers that Hu Jintao's factional battles with Jiang Zemin and Zeng Qinghong do not make him a nicer Communist.

More on matters inside Communist China: Gary Feuerberg (Epoch Times) examines the fur industry in Communist China, and its animal victims. Coming a close second is the editors of the Washington Post for warning about Pakistani strongman Pervez Musharraf, the Communist Chinese ally who "has tempered his action against Islamic extremists and suppressed Pakistan's pro-Western democratic parties" (regarding to the former, the editors were referring to this, this, this, this, this, this, and this).

Li Ka-Shing eyeing Canadian port terminal: The pro-Communist Hong Kong tycoon's firm Hutchison Port Holdings "is one of the international terminal operators that has shown interest" in Roberts Bank Terminal 2 (Vancouver Sun). Li's firm already controls two container ports on the Panama Canal.

Communist China's Korean colony has enough material for at least four nuclear warheads: According to the Institute for Science and International Security, the Stalinist regime "had between 101 and 141 pounds of plutonium, of which between 62 and 110 pounds is estimated to be usable for weapons - enough to make four to eight crude warheads" (Newsmax). The Stalinists need not give up or destroy this material as part of the Beijing Surrender.

More criticism of the Beijing Surrender came from Harvard University Professor Sung-Yoon Lee, who noted what the "agreement" actually means "that North Korea will never completely give up its nuclear weapons program" (Daily NK). Further in that vein, Jeong Jae Sung (Daily NK) notes that the "agreement" makes no reference to the Stalinists' uranium weaponization program.
