CHINESE SENTENCE JOURNALIST TO 15 YEARS FOR TALKING TO THE WEST-DOES IT MATTER, DOES IT FUCK.
A Chinese court in the troubled western province of Xinjiang has sentenced an ethnic Uighur journalist to 15 years in prison for "endangering state security" by speaking to foreign reporters. Niyaz, 51, gave an interview to a Hong Kong newspaper one month after riots broke out in Xinjiang, leaving at least 197 people dead and 1,600 injured.
Should this matter to us in the West? Yes, in my opinion. Should we be doing business with such a brutal gang? No, in my opinion. Will our leaders care? No, in my opinion. Will it stop them doing business? Definitely not, in my opinion. My conclusion? We live in a World with a bunch of pricks as Leaders.
Does it matter? Does it fuck! BUT IT SHOULD.
