    Question Empire State Building goes red for Communist China, sparking protest

    Empire State Building honors China, riling critics - Yahoo! News

    NEW YORK Critics of China's communist government are protesting plans to light the top of New York's Empire State Building red and yellow to honor that nation's 60th anniversary.
    Several supporters of Tibet protested Wednesday outside the iconic building, where a lighting ceremony is planned. The building often changes its lighting colors to mark holidays and big events.
    Democratic Congressman Anthony Weiner (WEE'-nur) of New York says the lights should not be used to pay tribute to what he called "a nation with a shameful history on human rights."
    Building spokeswoman Marisa Picker had no immediate comment.
    China is marking 60 years of communist rule on Wednesday.

    It was supposed to be green last week for the Wizard of Oz anniversary. They bailed on that. Fuckers.

    The U.S. is trying to keep China from calling in all of the loans we can't pay back by 'honoring' them.

    Let's not forget that China's economy is based on selling us crappy products. Without us buying their shit, they'll have thousands of workers rioting.

    True. But China is the U.S.'s biggest creditor. And if China decides to call in those loans we're screwed.
