The Norwegian Nobel Committee awarded the 2010 prize to imprisoned dissident Liu Xiaobo and has repeatedly called for his freedom. He is serving an 11-year prison sentence for advocating democratic reforms and China has denounced his sympathizers as supporting a criminal.

THE "DISSIDENTS" MAIN BEEF WAS TO IMPLEMENT THE "REFORM" OF THE CHINA BANKING STRUCTURE THUS GIVING DE FACTO CONTROL TO THE WALL STREET BANKERS OF CHINA'S FINANCIAL SYSTEM.

Norwegians are being punished because a few dumb ones made a bad call. If they kowtow long enough, Beijing may be merciful and grant some of the innocent Norwegians a visa to visit China as long as they keep their noses clean and stay out of trouble.

Beijing is merely a footnote when it comes to what the Chinese will ultimately do with their government. And the wonderous changes ahead are just a matter of time. This is not to say Communism will be deleted, but revised according to the demands of Chinese Americans. Hopefully some of you younger will live enough to see this. For the process has already begun.
