The Chinese government is from Venus, the truth is from Mars

Next time you read anything from China about China, remember this: the Chinese government says what it wants, without regard for the truth. CNN reports China acknowledges almost 10 times as many actual SARS cases than previously reported.

This is the year 2003 (by the "Western imperialist war-mongerers'" calendar). China has manufacturing facilities and engineering teams for a large assortment of communications equipment: everything from network routers to cell phones. Why, oh why, would they think that covering something up like this is a good idea?

Why indeed?
