Border agent says China ordered his prosecution
WorldNetDaily ^ | 27 JULY 2007 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 07/27/2007 4:42:24 AM PDT by radar101

He says the agents disregarded their oaths by pursuing a politically motivated prosecution against him to appease their superiors, who allegedly were seeking to do what communist China wanted.

"I was involved in a political prosecution that our government began at the demand of the government of communist China," Rhodes told WND. "The prosecution was promised to China by then-Secretary of State Colin Powell and then-Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Tom Ridge."

His lawyer, Steven Cohen, concurs.

If true, this is outrageous to the extreme and I hope he wins his lawsuits.

I see a pattern of abuse here. Iraqi terrorists complain about our troops doing their jobs — Haditha prosecution. China and Mexico complain about our soldiers doing their jobs — border patrol agents are prosecuted. WTF does the federal government do for the American people besides rob us for taxes?!

Besides corporations spending on behalf of the Chi-Coms there's garden variety influence -- very, very lucrative for some of America's anointed ones.

"'The China lobby is among the most sophisticated in Washington,' the report continued. 'Those who help advance China's interest include former Secretaries of State Henry Kissinger, George Schultz, Alexander Haig, Lawrence Eagleburger and Cyrus Vance. . .'"

Traitors all.

China’s goal is to become the world’s preeminent superpower, which obviously would occur at our expense.

If the U.S. doesn’t flat-out surrender to them by 2015-2040 (which the aforementioned “lobbyists” are busily trying to arrange), they will wage a hot war against us where 3,000 casualties won’t be the total of four years’ losses as they have been for us in Iraq, but four hours’ losses . . . and that will be on a good day.

Not only do the Chinese place little value upon human life (something we see them demonstrate almost daily), it has an overabundance of young males, which has proven troublesome in nearly every society where it has occurred. Not only would the ChiComs gladly incur hundreds of thousands of casualties to achieve a strategic goal, some of their leaders would consider it socially beneficial even if it advanced no other strategic objective.

It ain’t gonna be pretty when the ChiComs remind us how real wars are fought . . . brutally, viciously, remorselessly, and ruthlessly with no regard for human life or suffering.

I remember Red China from day one.

Since Red China first got the bomb the Chi-Coms routinely ask us, "We can afford to lose [insert current population of U.S. here] how many can you lose?"

More from the article:
Colin Powell and Tom Ridge...

“In Rhodes’ case, the record shows that Powell and Ridge both apologized to China over the incident and promised to investigate the border agents involved.”

“Instead, the Consulate emphasized that Powell apologized because the U.S. is an “open society” that welcomes visitors. “Our goal is to ensure that visitors from around the world have a safe and enjoyable stay in the United States,” the Consulate quoted Powell as saying. “The United States will continue to work that incidents such as this one do not occur again.”

I doubt the Chinamen you're referring to take their own lives into account when asking that particuarly question. And in a hot (nuclear) war, they darn well should. As of last year the estimate of the total number of warheads in their arsenal is around 150 (and if our ABM technology keeps developing on schedule taking down only 150 wouldn't be much of a problem).

The U.S., of course, has several thousands of nuke warheads deployed on far more accurate delivery systems. In less than an hour we could kill half their population using only a fraction of our arsenal, and every one of their leaders would be among the dead. Chinese leaders may not care about their surplus population, but you can be sure they're not on a suicide mission.

The Chinks aren't even confident enough to take on an island (Taiwan) right off their coast let alone the most powerful nation in the history of the world.

China didn’t have to order the prosecution, they just expressed their ‘deep dismay’. Powell or Ridge ‘suggested’ that it would be a good idea to investigate and the butt kissing system stepped up to the plate.

That would be great but for two things.

They are continually, and rapidly, adding to their arsenal. (For this we can thank Bill Clinton and Loral, among others.) We, on the other hand, are not.

They will launch first, which means the U.S. will likely sustain heavy casualties.

Will our so-called "leaders" have the cojones to launch a retaliatory strike? Or they will bend to the legions of lobbyists, their colleagues, bought and paid for by the ChiComs, urging our surrender after we sustain those heavy causalties from their pre-emptive strike?

If not for us (U.S.)...

A countrified coworker of mine saw an oriental woman having difficulty at our business and didn't know how to address her. "Pardon me, ma'am; are you a chink, a gook or a slope? I ask because I don't want to use a politically incorrect term that might offend you."

Santa's going to leave dip juice in his stocking.

Good scenario. YEt if Hillary Clinton, the esteemed leader, is in power China won’t have to attack. They will be invited in. Why else would both Clintons deliver our top missile technology and other defense information to the Chinese while they were in their first reign of power??? Hillary would simply surrender before any conflict started, as long as she gets a high position in the new Chinamerica politburo.
