    China struggles to contain wave of defiance in Tibet
    23 Mar.`12 - Since January, demonstrations have erupted across the Tibetan areas of China. For more than a year now, Tibetans have been setting themselves on fire as a form of protest against Chinese rule, the latest being a father of three. A warning, this report from our International editor Lindsey Hilsum does contain very distressing images.

    It appears to me that this kind of technology - like all technology - can be used for good and for evil purposes. I don't really see the problem here.

    I assume you are using a computer to post here? How dare you support Foxcon and its evil product line along with Chinese enslavement. I hope you don't have a cell phone...

    Stop the fake outrage at a blind investment and the actions of a company Romney has absolutely nothing to do with any more.

    There is no bad techology.

    There ARE people who use techology to do bad things.

    Glad I could be there to solve this mystery for you, kid.

    YEAH!
    Those jobs USED TO BE IN THE USA!

    Now they go to chinese communists and conservatives here go YEAH! NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS! Huzzah for Bain capitalism!

    I'd pay more for a product made in the USA. Because I know it wouldn't be a piece of shit.

    I used to work making printed circuit boards. Now I troubleshoot motherboards for a living.
    Guess what I found caused a short in one of FoxConn's boards? A bit of algae. Yes. They wash their printed circuit boards IN THEIR RIVERS. You know how TOXIC making printed circuit boards is? Is uses hydrogen peroxide for just one step. Pour some of THAT on your d**k sometime.

    Isn't it true that the more the Tibetians self-immolate in protest, the fewer Tibetians there are to protest?

    I use my purchasing power as much as I can to make a statement. Wouldn't buy anything made by a union. I'd rather buy Chinese or Indonesian.
