China UN Ambassador Orders US To Shut Up
19 Aug 2006
By The Light Of A Burning Bridge

China's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva told America on
Thursday to shut up and keep quiet on the subject of Beijing's growing
military spending.

Interviewed for a BBC radio programme on the topic, Sha Zukang also
said China would do the business and sacrifice its own people's lives if any
nation supported a declaration of independence by Taiwan.

Responding to jitters within the Bush administration about Beijing's
spiraling military budget, Sha said America itself accounts for half of the
entire world's military spending.

"The China population is six times or five times that of the United
States," he said.

"Why blame China?... It's better for the US to shut up and keep
quiet. It's much, much better."

His voice rising, Sha continued: "It's the US's sovereign right to
do whatever they deem good for them -- But don't tell us what is good for
China. Thank you very much!"
