This craven, useless assault is insulting and ridiculous on its face. But more
than that, it betrays the socialist/liberal/nazi drive to filter, control and
squelch the free flow of information. Kill the messenger. Suppress the
truth. Stifle discussion.
Typical liberal. Knapphack has performed his unintended assignment. ThanQ!
I haven't contacted idiot rags like Washington Times or
Washington Weekly, because I hope they do lose revenue
with Nalty posting their stuff daily to their presumed
mainline, slavering audience for free.
Are you saying that there's no controlling legal
It's nice to see Little Joey Knapp defend the owners of the
corporate media, even if he doesn't know who owns what.

China Military May Accept Foreign Money
By JOE McDONALD Associated Press Writer
BEIJING (AP)--China's military industries plan
to open up to foreign investment and hold a trade
fair next year to improve their electronics technology,
a government newspaper reported Sunday.
The Business Weekly of the China Daily newspaper
did not say what sectors of the industry would
be open to foreign participation or what form that
participation was expected to take.
China has spent heavily since 1988 to improve its
rudimentary military industries, buying Russian
technology to build supersonic jet fighters and
pursuing electronics expertise from other countries.
That modernization drive has unsettled Taiwan and
other Chinese neighbors and caused frictions with
the United States over the possible diversion to
military use of computers and technology bought
by civilian firms.
But despite progress in missiles and other areas,
analysts say Chinese military technology is so
far behind Russia and the West that the country
cannot catch up on its own.
Complicating its modernization efforts, Beijing
has been cut off by the United States and other
Western arms producers since its military crushed
the Chinese pro-democracy movement in 1989.
China is expected to spend $120 billion on military
electronics and high-tech equipment by 2000, according
to the Business Weekly.
U.S. Defense Secretary William Perry said earlier
this year that in a confidence-building move, Chinese
military officials had agreed to brief their American
counterparts on their spending plans.
Critics of China contend it is using civilian front
companies to evade limits on sales of military
China has denied accusations that it is using a
U.S.-made supercomputer for military research,
in violation of a purchase agreement that said
it would be devoted to civilian research.
The four-day military trade fair planned by the
People's Liberation Army next May is to include
displays of radar, communications and intelligence
systems; military computers; microwave components
and other equipment, the Business Weekly said.
Foreign suppliers will be invited.

Listen, Reyne, stay on subject don't let these trolls get us down...
We're here to get to the truth and exchange information. Don't let
these people with other agendas control the flow.
Knapp has proven himself to be a lightweight - just look at my exchange
Not all Democrats are evil, please don't be a troll ...

No, I'm saying "So What?"
You remember that, don't you?
Tell Carville when he's in the pen that I'll be
stopping by for a hello on visiting day.
Sheila Katko retorted,
: Gee, I guess a mistake was made....that should make it all go away, right?
Oh, absolutely. But also, the 1834 law is so *antiquated*, and it's
almost *never* enforced, so why start now? Hey, they didn't even *have*
the Internet in 1834. In fact, I don't think they even had computers! ;)
So how could that ancient law have been intended to apply to copyright
violations *on the Internet*?
Smiling at the pro-Clinton absurdities all the way.... --s
