Cannibalism and Chinese "energy pills"
The US population sympathizes with Tibet. But the US government, while condemning China, partners with it.
The news media avoids revealing too much of what China is up to as a police state. This used to be because the government was luring them into the capitalism-trap with "most favored nation" trading status in spite of their egregious human rights abuses. (Thank you, Clinton).
The US also fears that China will turn right around and reveal American atrocities. Our national atrocities are not limited to war crimes, they are the day the day crimes involved with dealing with ethnic minorities.
America is worse for African Americans than China is for Tibetans. (Racist mass incarceration strategies mean there are now more blacks in jail or under correctional control than the number of slaves at the height of the American slave trade).
The more China sees the US getting away with police state tactics and weapons at home and abroad, the more it is emboldened to remove all bounds: rape, sex trafficking, drug dealing, pharmaceutical poison producing, chem trailing, spying, injustice assassinations... and now, mass cannibalism.
It is what capitalism leads to. It is almost too hard to believe (even after the human-marshmallow scandal). But here is ABC New reporting what Korean officials found:
We grind babies into capsules
You think we won't kill Tibetan monks?
The dried flesh of dead infants appears to be the not-so-secret ingredient in a health supplement that is reportedly being smuggled out of China.
The performance-enhancement pills, touted for increasing vitality and sex drive, have been found in the luggage of tourists and in international mail, according to South Korean authorities.
They said they had confiscated nearly 17,500 of the human flesh capsules since last August, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
South Korean authorities warned that the pills could be dangerous to human health.
"This is gross, as well as creepy," said Dr. William Schaffner, chairman of preventive medicine at Vanderbilt University Medical Center...
It is not known whether these pills made of human flesh have appeared in the United States. [But we would never eat babies for sexual function, energy, or just to try it -- because we love kids too much -- but, y'know, if they're Chinese babies and the stores run out of tiger testicles, rhino horn, or almost anything else...]
"Our experts in global health haven't heard about this subject," said Arleen Porcell, a spokesman for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
