Liar! Liar! Pants on fire!

March 25, 2009

A video has been released today reputedly showing Chinese security personnel beating on Tibetan protesters – who happen to be helplessly handcuffed. The video was supposedly released by the Tibetan Government in exile and showed scenes from last years violent protesters where according to Chinese officials – monks took to the streets and violently protested for Tibetan independance – or at least a degree of such.

The Chinese Government has dismissed the video calling it a lie. They claim the audio has been patched together from outside sources and the wounds on display are in fact fake.

Whether it is real or fake I somehow think the Chinese Government would deny it regardless. Oh how easy it must be to deny anything pinned on you, playing the fake card whilst at the same time playing the very same hand against your own people, painting for them a happy positive picture whilst ignoring the negative.

Ah China – I really do feel sorry for the Chinese people. While the Government has done wonders for the country, it’s also hurting it in equal amounts.

Click here to watch the video and make up your own mind as to its validity.
