China's Mass Slaughter Begins Again

The Enemy Press AP posts a story at azcentral.com about a mass killing of dogs in Shanghai in response to outbreaks of rabies. (And you thought I was talking about people didn't you???)

It seems the government doesn't know how to control the outbreak, and as good commies do, they immediately turn to brutality to achieve their goals. "Last week, a county in southwestern Yunnan province killed 50,000 dogs, many of them beaten to death in front of their owners, after three people died of rabies." Hmmm, the same tactics they use against people.

Anyway, the usual suspects raised an outcry against the acts. "People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals called such killings a 'hideously cruel response,' in a statement on its Web site. After last week's slaughter, the group canceled about $300,000 orders for merchandise made in China and called for a boycott of Chinese-made products to protest what it calls widespread cruelty to animals in the country." No response to human cruelty from anyone, however.

In other China news, at least 500 new restaurants opened yesterday in Shanghai....
