Have you heard? There's been a coup in China! Tanks have been spotted on the streets of Beijing and other cities! Shots were fired near the Communist Party's leadership compound!
OK, before you get too agitated, there is no coup. To be more exact, as far as we know there has been no attempted coup.
To be completely correct we should say we do not know what's going on. The fact is there is no evidence of a coup. But it is a subject that has obsessed many in China this week.
Welcome to the weird and wonderful world of reporting on China in the past few days. Coup rumours ricocheted back and forth, most over the internet, but some were picked up by western newspapers. China's microblogs were awash with speculation. Hard facts were non-existent.

We can only hope and pray for this to happen. There are so many good people in China, and many Christians too, and their persecution is of Biblical proportions.
The whole Chinese economy is a house of cards. I think that folks there are starting to feel it and are beginning to think what the endgame will be. The lavish wealth of the cities while the farmers live in dirt huts in the country probably is upsetting some there.
ChinaAmerica are now so cynical about the level of censorshipMSM BS that they will not believe what comes from the Democrat party's mouthpieces (MSM) even if it is true
The chinese people have never know real freedom.. EVER..
AS have the Russian people... and the Indians and most of this planet..
Strange that Americans having known FREEDOM count it like bull squirt..
and are willing to give it away to federal givernment..
Could be the American people are as corrupt as their givernment is..
Occams law suggests it could be no other way..
Americans seem to like corrupt politicians that lie to them.. and are Union stooges..
If they didn’t they wouldn’t elect them.. but they do..
That's pretty much the case every day for people outside the Party and especially foreigners.
There is no coup. Anyone caught speaking of the coup that is not happening will be summarily executed. Carry on.
no reason to think a coup in china is in any way going to be good for the US.
Nothing on the news here (Taiwan) about this...and it would hit the air ASAP if there was a hint of truth to it.
There, that's the completed statement.
I think that would depend.
IF the media moguls and the government thought that it would complicate things with the Mainland too much,
they’d keep it off the media . . . perhaps even at all costs.
It might leak out in the fringe media areas and the opposition . . . but perhaps not even then.
Taiwan’s media is freer than historically . . . but there’s not really much totally free media anywhere . . . except the net . . . sort of, mostly.
