To get the real story, you have to check out Incestuous Amplificiation’s pithy, perceptive and take-no-prisoners comments on the news coming out of Beijing. He manages to slash through the BS rhetoric and get to the heart of the matter. (What’s really disturbing is that apparently at the heart of the matter is a festering jealousy and resentment of the US on all sides.) Many of these comments are hilarious, especially his blasting to shreds the platitudinous soundbites dribbling from the spokespeople’s mouths.
