News of the Day (February 28)

Beijing Surrender Syndrome spread to U.S policy on Iran: It appears the United States is embracing talks with Communist China's lead ally in the Middle East (i.e., the mullahcracy of Iran) over its attempt to turn Iraq into its satellite state. This comes despite recent reports of "New York Police Department concerns that Iranian agents may already have targeted the city for terror attacks" (Newsweek). David Frum (National Review Online) responded with perfect deadpan: "Well, I guess those North Korean negotiations went so well and all." However, Enlightened Comment of the Day honors goes to Frank Gaffney for his NRO column on this (emphasis added): "Like bullies everywhere, the Iranian leaders and their enablers in Russia, China, North Korea, and Venezuela, will take America’s submissive behavior as an invitation to become even more assertive at our expense and that of our allies. The world, in short, will become a far more dangerous place." Exactly.

Speaking of the Beijing Surrender, One Free Korea lists the "working groups" that are to come from the deal. Guess who leads the denuclearization one? Why, its the Stalinists' colonial masters: Communist China. OFK also has some Administration double-speak on the uranium issue, while Daily NK gives the agreement a well- deserved rhetorical double-barrel. Finally, the Stalinists have sent their emissary here for talks on one of their long sought prizes - diplomatic recognition from the United States (Washington Times).

More on the Communists' Korean colony: A Stalinist cadre is caught running "a large scale drug dealing enterprise " (Daily NK). The head of America's Defense Intelligence Agency comments on Stalinist North Korea's ability to build a missile that can hit the United States and says SNK is pretty close (Agence France Presse via Breitbart). A Japanese abduction victims support group plans a leaflet drop in SNK (OFK).

On occupied East Turkestan: Martin Wayne's piece on Communist China's occupation (which would have run away with Ignorant Comment of the Day had I been able to get a decent URL before my response to it yesterday afternoon) was shredded by Davesgonechina at Mutant Palm.

Australia's attempt to deport Falun Gong practitioner blocked by fellow detainees: A Falun Gong practitioner was nearly sent back to Communist China today, until fellow detainees formed a human shield around him "to stop guards from putting him on the flight" (Sydney Morning Herald via Between Heaven and Earth). The stand off follows numerous attempts by Communist China to get around Australian asylum procedures in order to snatch back refugees (Epoch Times).
