TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – RED CHINA HAS NO REDEEMER

TIBET CONSCIOUSNESS – RED CHINA HAS NO REDEEMER. RED CHINA’S DESTINY IS NOT DECIDED BY RELATIVE MILITARY STRENGTHS OF CHINA AND UNITED STATES.

The proud Han Chinese people may choose to ‘love’ or ‘hate’ United States of America. The issue is not that of bilateral US – China relations. Red China would be paid back with the very weapons she used on others. Just as she destroyed Tibet, she would be destroyed. Red China is exhausting herself for nothing. She dominated Tibet but she is wearing herself out. Red China is moving toward her own logical end of self-destruction.

The Evil Red Empire is destined to be uprooted, torn down, and destroyed for Red China has not repented and her evil actions are not forgiven.

Chinese people may love or hate America. But, Red China has no choice. Red China has no Redeemer. No one can save Red China for she pursued a hazardous course of action to the brink of catastrophe. Beijing is Doomed.

HONG KONG On the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks, a major Chinese television network broadcast a documentary that investigated how Chinese people viewed not only those pivotal events but America itself. One man, referring to the slaughter of thousands of Americans, declared, What a beautiful job! Another said, They should give America more of the same. And a student standing in Tiananmen Square said he approved of the attacks because the United States was a bully and a hegemon. Later in the film, the young man in Tiananmen Square went on to describe his plans for the future. He said that he loved America and that he was about to go there to study. If I don’t have to come back, then I won’t, he said.
The Chinese view of America has not changed since this aired four years ago.

On Sept. 3, President Xi Jinping orchestrated an extravagant military parade in Beijing. An acquaintance from my schooldays was so excited by the spectacle, the disciplined troop formations, the advanced equipment that he wrote in a post on WeChat that he could hardly sleep that night. He added that his friends should guard against America because American imperialism still wants to destroy us.

Only a few months earlier, this same man had taken his daughter on a trip to Boston, where he reported enthusiastically on social media about visiting Harvard University and eating a huge lobster. He also pledged to send his daughter to America. We should help our next generation live in a place without pollution, without recycled cooking oil and poisoned milk powder, he wrote.

The young man in Tiananmen Square and my former schoolmate are hardly alone in holding contrasting, schizophrenic views of America. For many Chinese people, the depth of their admiration for the American system and way of life is matched only by their animosity toward the country.

According to a Pew Research Center survey released earlier this year, only 44 percent of Chinese people have a favorable view of America the 33rd lowest approval rating out of 40 countries surveyed, and far lower than the 84 percent reported for South Korea and the 68 percent for Japan.

The Chinese hostility to America is first and foremost the result of government propaganda. Because of censorship, many people lack a basic understanding of life outside China. And although in the past few decades the Chinese government has been careful to avoid a real clash with America, Beijing’s domestic propaganda has never ceased presenting it as the enemy. Stir in 60 years of uninterrupted anti-American schooling, and it is hardly surprising that one result is an irrational hostility toward the United States.

Another Chinese documentary, Silent Contest, from 2013, highlighted one of the major reasons for castigating America as the eternal enemy. In the film, it was said that America’s key strategic objective is to dominate and break up China. You hear a lot of this kind of talk from Chinese officials. Like most despotic governments, the Chinese leadership likes to play the part of defender of the people a role that necessitates the existence of a powerful external enemy. A strong and hostile America is an important source of the legitimacy for Communist Party rule.

But in our globalized age, where there are myriad, multilayered interactions between countries, it is impossible for our government to fully stop people from seeking to research, study and understand the United States.

American films, TV shows and products, and many other aspects of American culture remain influential in everyday Chinese life. On the Internet, Chinese netizens loudly praise America’s system of government and spontaneously rally to America’s defense in global affairs. Some people like to compare America and Russia in recent years Beijing has been cozying up to Moscow and analyze the behavior of the two countries toward China, wondering aloud if we have chosen the right friend.

Many of the same people who are suspicious of America’s intentions are the ones who harbor the most fervent hopes of going to live there. In everyday conversation these people might be ashamed of China’s human rights record and our political situation, or they may talk about how they want to buy an apartment in New York to find a secure place for their money, but when a foreign government or organization (from no matter what country) criticizes the Chinese system, they become defensive. In the case of the United States, they will often fire off a list of America’s failings, such as racism and gun violence.

A mixed view of extremes about America is not uncommon around the world, but what makes it so striking here is that many Chinese government officials and elites seem to hold these contrasting views.
Like the young man in the documentary in Tiananmen Square, the children of many high officials go to America to study, to settle down, to invest in property. For years, the children and grandchildren of the Communist Party elite have been attending America’s top universities. Perhaps most famously, President Xi Jinping’s daughter enrolled at Harvard in 2010.

Many Chinese people can’t help but notice that the elites have no problem taking advantage of what America has to offer, but when they are preaching to the public, they seem to have another view.

Government leaders can’t be relied on to deliver better bilateral relationships, especially not the Chinese government. But its encouraging that, in the shadow of censorship, some ordinary Chinese people are opening their eyes and looking more realistically at our country and its place in the world. American leaders should realize that the best hope for improved Chinese-American relations resides with these Chinese people.

Nevertheless, as long as the Chinese government pretends to be the defender of the people against the United States and persists in its negative propaganda, Chinese-American relations will have a long way to go.

RED CHINA – RED ALERT – THREAT OF SELF-DESTRUCTION FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS

RED CHINA – RED ALERT – THREAT OF SELF-DESTRUCTION FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS

RED CHINA - RED ALERT - MOVING TOWARDS SELF-DESTRUCTION FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS.
RED CHINA – RED ALERT – MOVING TOWARDS SELF-DESTRUCTION FROM TOXIC CHEMICALS.

Red China’s passionate pursuit of material wealth will bring her grief, misery, and deep sorrow. In fact, Red China is moving towards self-destruction from storing huge amounts of toxic chemicals in urban areas exposing people, and all other denizens to grave risk of unacceptable proportions. I worked for GREENPEACE USA for ten years and I commend Greenpeace China for exposing the dangers of Toxic Pollution, and in particular the unsafe storage of chemicals at Tianjin and various other places across China. At Greenpeace we consistently demand total freedom from Toxic Chemicals and they must be eliminated right at the source and we call it ‘Source Reduction’. Red China’s greed is driven by Gold, and Silver mining operations that use extremely dangerous chemicals like Sodium Cyanide. At Special Frontier Force, we recognize desire as the root cause of all human suffering.

Tianjin Blast Exposes the Dangerous Proximity of Toxic Chemicals in China

 

By PATRICK BOEHLER, JOSH KELLER, K.K. REBECCA LAI, VANESSA PIAO and CRYSTAL TSE AUG. 21, 2015
The warehouse in Tianjin that exploded on August 12 was one of many buildings across China that store toxic chemicals near residential areas, in violation of safety regulations, according to a review of satellite imagery and public records.

Highways and schools all over China are located near warehouses licensed to handle hazardous substances.

According to Chinese officials, the warehouse in Tianjin, a major port city, stored at least 700 tons of one common deadly chemical, sodium cyanide, used in mining to separate gold and silver from rock.
After the deadly explosions, residents of Tianjin have been gripped by fear and uncertainty over the presence of toxic chemicals in the city’s air and water, setting off a national debate about hidden safety hazards along the supply route for sodium cyanide.

Chinese regulations forbid facilities with hazardous chemicals to operate less than one kilometer (two-thirds of a mile) from public buildings and major roads.

The consequences of an accident at such a storage site can be disastrous. The blasts in Tianjin killed over 100 people, injured hundreds more and turned its surroundings into wasteland. Experts said it was possible that some of the sodium cyanide combined with water to form toxic vapor.

Thousands of dead fish washed up on a riverbank near the site of the explosions last week. White foam filled the streets during the first rain shower after the blast. Residents and relatives of those killed have taken to the streets in protest, demanding to be told how a hazardous chemical storage site could be so close to their homes.

The sodium cyanide stored at the warehouse originated from a factory 200 miles west of Tianjin. Chinese news media reported a foul smell in the air near the factory, and local residents said they had found white foam in the groundwater. Some complained of headaches.

The company, Hebei Chengxin, is one of the largest makers of the toxic substance in Asia. Its sprawling facility is close to a primary school with up to 700 students and staff members. Company officials could not be reached for comment.

The plant’s apparent violation of minimum-distance rules reflects China’s difficulties in enforcing safety standards during a time of rapid industrialization. In May, the Ministry of Environmental Protection issued draft guidelines for improving environmental protection in industrial parks, noting that some have expanded recklessly. Such parks create serious pollution and severe environmental hazards that are affecting social harmony and stability, the guidelines warned.

On Friday, Greenpeace said it had identified warehouses for hazardous chemicals at four other major port cities: Shanghai, Guangzhou, Ningbo and Qingdao. All are close to residential areas.

The Times has found several other facilities across China that produce or store sodium cyanide and other hazardous chemicals and appear to violate safe-distance regulations, putting nearby residents at risk of toxic exposure.

Sodium cyanide was only one of the chemicals stored at the warehouse in Tianjin, owned by Rui Hai Logistics. But it is remarkably lethal: a quarter of a teaspoon, if ingested, will kill an adult in a few minutes.

Officials have not explained why the warehouse was allowed to operate just 2,000 feet from a high-rise apartment complex. Local residents said they had no idea that the warehouse posed a risk.

Satellite images show two other hazardous-goods warehouses in Tianjin less than three miles from the blast. The warehouses, managed by companies under the state-owned Sinochem Group, advertise that they can store hazardous chemicals. One is near a kindergarten; the other sits next to a major highway. Employees at both warehouses declined to comment.

The blast in Tianjin has prompted officials to conduct surveys on sites across the country that store hazardous chemicals. During one such inspection in Wuhan last week, local authorities found such a site just across the street from a residential compound.
Inspectors chastised managers at the company, Wuhan International Container, for violating basic safety standards, like failing to maintain an inventory and store chemicals separately, according to Chinese media reports last week. On Thursday, the City of Wuhan revoked the storage company’s license to store explosive chemicals. The company did not return phone calls.

Another major producer of sodium cyanide, Anhui Shuguang, appears to have a subsidiary located not only close to a residential area of Anqing in Anhui Province, but also only a few hundred feet from the Yangtze River in central China. The Times found a kindergarten and another school within 1,000 meters of the factory. The company did not respond to questions sent by email and a person who answered the phone there declined to comment.

On Thursday, safety inspectors also visited a storage site in Dongguan, in southern Guangdong Province. The facility is licensed to store sodium cyanide, according to a man who answered the phone and said he was the operating company’s legal representative. The man, who gave only his surname, Lu, declined to say whether the site was currently storing the chemical, citing client confidentiality.

Mr. Lu said the company passed the inspection. Asked about the warehouse’s proximity to the nearby village of Jinaosha, he said he was confident that the distance exceeded one kilometer. We are definitely legal, he said. I have never done wrong to the Communist Party.

DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA PREDICTS HEAVENLY STRIKE BY ASTEROID - BEIJING IS DOOMED.
DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA PREDICTS HEAVENLY STRIKE BY ASTEROID – BEIJING IS DOOMED.

At Special Frontier Force, I am known as ‘Doomsayer of Doom Dooma’ for I predict that ‘The Evil Red Empire’ will witness her own downfall because of a cataclysmic event which she cannot ward off by paying ransom. The term ‘apocalypse’ means unveiling or revelation, which depicts destruction of ‘Evil’ and triumph of good. Apocalypse often refers to a striking disclosure of something not previously realized. The term ‘prophesy’ means declaration or prediction of something by the influence of divine guidance. In Bible, the term ‘Prophet’ is used to describe persons who speaks for God as though under divine guidance, and often predicts future events.

DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA PREDICTS HEAVENLY STRIKE BY ASTEROID - BEIJING IS DOOMED.
DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA PREDICTS HEAVENLY STRIKE BY ASTEROID – BEIJING IS DOOMED.

The term ‘Doom’ means ‘what is laid down’, a decree, judgment, a sentence of condemnation, destiny, tragic fate, ruin, and to ordain as a penalty. I am ‘DOOMSAYER’ for I am a person predisposed to predicting catastrophe or disaster, calamity, or ‘The Deluge’. My predisposition is inherited at a place known as DOOM DOOMA, Assam, in Northeast India. I am not a prophet and I am not claiming that I am making a new prophetic revelation. By divine guidance, I received opportunity to read Book of Isaiah, and Book of Revelation and learned that the term ‘EVIL’ is always associated with Calamity, Disaster, Downfall, Catastrophe, Cataclysm, Trouble, and Woe for it brings punishment as a consequence. Evildoer judged, condemned, and punished for evil moves towards its own end of self-destruction.

DOOMSAYER OF DOOM DOOMA PREDICTS HEAVENLY STRIKE BY ASTEROID - BEIJING IS DOOMED. RED CHINA'S FATE IS SEALED. THE DOWNFALL OF "EVIL RED EMPIRE" IS DESTINED. RED DRAGON IS CONDEMNED IN ITS OWN SELF-DESTRUCTION.

The Evil Red Empire, Red Dragon, Red China has embraced its own end of self-destruction for her ‘evil’ actions. For that reason, I pronounce Beijing is Doomed. I am not predicting a random, spontaneous, purposeless strike or impact by an asteroid. I am predicting a heavenly strike that is precise, selective, guided, and purposeful for it delivers Justice while destroying Evil.

The probability of it striking Earth one day stands at 1 in 63,000, and even those odds are fading fast as scientists find out more about the asteroid. It will most likely swing past our planet again in 2032, according to NASA.

Asteroid 2012 DA14 made a record-close pass — 17,100 miles — by Earth on February 15, 2013. Most asteroids are made of rocks, but some are metal. They orbit mostly between Jupiter and Mars in the main asteroid belt. Scientists estimate there are tens of thousands of asteroids and when they get close to our planet, they are called near-Earth objects.

Another asteroid, Apophis, got a lot of attention from space scientists and the media when initial calculations indicated a small chance it could hit Earth in 2029 or 2036. NASA scientists have since ruled out an impact, but on April 13, 2029, Apophis, which is about the size of 3½ football fields, will make a close visit — flying about 19,400 miles (31,300 kilometers) above Earth’s surface. The images above were taken by the European Space Agency’s Herschel Space Observatory in January 2013.

The first asteroid to be identified, 1 Ceres, was discovered January 1, 1801, by Giuseppe Piazzi in Palermo, Sicily. But is Ceres just another asteroid? Observations by NASA’s Hubble Space Telescope show that Ceres has a lot in common with planets like Earth. It’s almost round and it may have a lot of pure water ice beneath its surface. Ceres is about 606 by 565 miles (975 by 909 kilometers) in size and scientists say it may be more accurate to call it a mini-planet. NASA’s Dawn spacecraft is on its way to Ceres to investigate. The spacecraft is 35 million miles (57 million kilometers) from Ceres and 179 million miles (288 million kilometers) from Earth.

One of the top asteroid-tracking scientists is Don Yeomans at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, which is managed by the California Institute of Technology. Yeomans says every day, “Earth is pummeled by more than 100 tons of material that spewed off asteroids and comets.” Fortunately, most of the asteroid trash is tiny and it burns up when it hits the atmosphere, creating meteors, or shooting stars. Yeomans says it’s very rare for big chunks of space litter to hit Earth’s surface. Those chunks are called meteorites.

Story highlights

An asteroid isn’t going to cause the end of the world in September, NASA says The rumors are fueled by end-times conspiracists

(CNN)Dear Earthlings, stop worrying about an asteroid collision in September.

That’s the message from NASA, which countered a viral rumor Wednesday with a news release.

The headline was blunt: “NASA: There is No Asteroid Threatening Earth.”

“There is no scientific basis — not one shred of evidence — that an asteroid or any other celestial object will impact Earth” on the rumored dates, said NASA’s Paul Chodas, manager at NASA’s Near-Earth Object office. The Near-Earth Object office is based at Pasadena, California’s, Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Moreover, said Chodas, the chances of an asteroid striking in the next century are minuscule.

“Not a single one of the known objects has any credible chance of hitting our planet over the next century,” he said. The chances of a “Potentially Hazardous Asteroid” — as they are known — striking our little blue planet? Less than 0.01%.

That’s not nothing, but it’s not terrible, either, As astronomer Phil alai observed in a 2014 Slate article, the odds of dying in an asteroid impact are 1 in 700,000. You have more of a chance of being struck by lightning in your lifetime (1 in 3,000) or finding a pearl in an oyster (1 in 12,000).

But that hasn’t stopped panic from engulfing the Great Panic-making Machine, also known as the Internet. The rumor maintains that an area around Puerto Rico will be struck by an asteroid between September 15 and September 28. Depending on where you got the word, the coming destruction is related to the Bible Code, a letter from a self-proclaimed prophet or theories from end-times conspiracists.

As NASA noted in responses from its @AsteroidWatch Twitter account, they’re hoaxes.

 

“Completely fake story,” @AsteroidWatch said to one poster. “No worries.”

 

 

Of course, objects hit Earth all the time, usually to little or no effect.

“The Earth gets hit by about 100 tons of material every day,” wrote Plait — mostly small pebbles that we see as shooting stars. On rare occasions, such as the CHELYABINSK FIREBALL of February 2013, the space rocks are big enough to cause damage.

NASA has a desktop application to help amateur astronomers find asteroids, and a group of sky-watchers (including Queen guitarist Brian May, who’s also an astrophysicist) created “ASTEROID DAY,”which was held June 30, 2015 for the first time.

But world-ending catastrophe? You have to go back millions of years to find asteroids that caused that kind of damage. It’s happened, of course –it could be the reason dinosaurs now exist only as fossils — but unlikely.

So if you’re worried about cataclysmic asteroids coming next month, back away from the computer … unless you’re following @AsteroidWatch or scouting for threats.

TIBET AWARENESS – TIBET’S QUEST FOR FULL INDEPENDENCE

TIBET AWARENESS – TIBET’S QUEST FOR FULL INDEPENDENCE

TIBET AWARENESS - TIBET'S QUEST FOR FULL INDEPENDENCE. THE INSTITUTION OF DALAI LAMA, GANDEN PHODRANG GOVERNMENT OF TIBET BEGAN IN 1642.
TIBET AWARENESS – TIBET’S QUEST FOR FULL INDEPENDENCE. THE INSTITUTION OF DALAI LAMA, GANDEN PHODRANG GOVERNMENT OF TIBET BEGAN IN 1642.

The Great Fifth Dalai Lama founded the ‘Ganden Phodrang’ Government of Tibet in 1642. The successive Dalai Lamas have headed Tibetan State for nearly four centuries without any disruption despite Mongol conquest of Tibet in 1279. During the reign of Seventh Dalai Lama(1708-57), Tibet came under nominal protection of Ch’ing or Manchu Dynasty(1644 – 1912) of China while Tibetans enjoyed their natural freedom and independence. At no time in history, the Chinese Emperor required Tibet to pay taxes or tribute. Qing, Ch’ing, or Manchu China made no attempt to directly rule or govern Tibet. Manchu China’s influence in Tibet was almost nonexistent. “The Great Game” of rivalry between the empires of Czarist Russia and Queen Victoria’s Great Britain to control Asia changed the fortunes of Tibet forever.

During the reign of Thirteenth Dalai Lama, who ascended the throne at Potala Palace in 1895, Tibet repeatedly rebuffed overtures from Great Britain who at first saw Tibet as a trade route to Manchu China and later as countenancing Czarist Russian advances that might endanger British India. Eventually, in 1903, after failure to get Manchu China to control Tibet, Great Britain dispatched a political mission to Lhasa from British India to secure understanding on frontier and trade relations. When Tibet resisted, Great Britain sent a military expedition in 1904 forcing the Dalai Lama to seek shelter in Mongolia in June 1904. The British Expedition in 1905 imposed a treaty that made Tibet a protectorate of Britain without Chinese adherence. After declaring Tibet as her Protectorate, Great Britain lost interest in keeping that commitment, went ahead and achieved a treaty with Qing China without Tibetan participation. In this treaty of 1906, Great Britain conceded to Qing China’s suzerainty over Tibet as Britain was only interested in blocking Czarist Russia’s expansion of power from Central Asia. In 1906, the 13th Dalai Lama returned to Kumbun monastery in southern Tibet and stayed there for over a year. Qing China in an attempt to control Tibet dispatched a military force that launched a brutal attack on Kham killing several Tibetans including monks. In his quest for Tibetan Independence, the 13th Dalai Lama visited Peking during September 1908 to initiate direct diplomatic efforts with Qing Court and other foreign missions in Peking. However, the 13th Dalai Lama could not find any success in Peking, returned to Lhasa at the end of 1909. This success in keeping Britain away from Tibet emboldened Qing China to seek direct control of Tibet by using force against the Tibetans for the first time in 10 centuries. Soon after the 13th Dalai Lama’s arrival in Lhasa, in early 1910, Chinese General Zhao Erfeng marched into Tibet. Great Britain was unwilling to take any role in the dispute between China and Tibet. He had narrowly escaped getting captured by the Chinese and fled to India reaching there on February 21, 1910. The British allowed him to live in Darjeeling, and Kalimpong. The situation in Lhasa changed suddenly in 1911, when the Xinhai Revolution overthrew the Qing Dynasty and established the Republic of China. Taking advantage of the fall of Qing China, the 13th Dalai Lama directed operations from Sikkim defeating the Chinese occupying force in 1912. Tibet expelled all Chinese nationals including diplomats living in Lhasa. He returned to Lhasa in January 1913 and made public the “five-point” statement fully asserting Tibet’s Independence on February 13, 1913.

That dying burst of military aggression by the Qing or Manchu Dynasty converted Tibetan indifference into enmity.  From 1913, Tibet functioned as an independent government and defended its frontier against China in occasional fighting as late as 1931. The Great 13th Dalai Lama died on December 17, 1933 while Tibet existed as a fully independent nation. In 1949, Red China, the Evil Empire founded by China’s Communist Party Chairman Mao Zedong, heralded “Liberation” of Tibet. In 1950, Red Army invaded eastern Tibet, overwhelming the poorly equipped Tibetan troops. An appeal by the Fourteenth Dalai Lama to the United Nations was denied as support from Republic of India, and Great Britain was not forthcoming. A Tibetan delegation summoned to Peking in 1951 had to sign a treaty dictated by the Communist conquerors. Red China, a Liar, a Jackal, used deception, and trickery while she promised to guarantee Tibetan autonomy in exchange for keeping her civil and military headquarters at Lhasa. This story of enmity between Tibet and China that began with Manchu China’s military invasion of Tibet in 1910 continues to survive and majority of Tibetans seek full independence and not a meaningful autonomy to which the 14th Dalai Lama has agreed to find a ‘Middle Way’ to placate Red China. As Doomsayer of Doom Dooma, I predict the downfall of Red China and Tibet’s destiny to regain full Independence.

THE 13th DALAI LAMA’S DIPLOMATIC PARLEYS IN PEKING IN 1908

 

August 19, 2015 11:54 pm

The Thirteenth Dalai Lama, Thupten Gyatso

The Thirteenth Dalai Lama, Thupten Gyatso

This article appeared in the March-April 2015 edition of Tibetan Review.

Matteo Miele

Matteo Miele* examines the diplomatic activities of the 13th Dalai Lama in Beijing during his escape there in the aftermath of the British invasion of Tibet in 1903-04, which explains why he made the 1912 declaration of Tibet’s independence: that whereas Tibet viewed itself as an independent country forced to remain subservient to the wishes of its powerful neighbour, China not only considered Tibet a part of its empire but also looked to fully integrate it in ways unprecedented in history and which the communist Chinese eventually carried out in 1959.

The western diplomats

The thirteenth Dalai Lama Thubten Gyatsho (Thub-bstan-rgya-mtsho) arrived in Peking on September 28, 1908[1]. He reached the city by train, at two in the afternoon, greeted by representatives of the Wai-wu pu[2], Li-fan yüan[3] and of the imperial family[4].
Among the conditions for the audience that the Emperor Kuang-hsü and the Empress Dowager Tz’u-hsi would have granted the Dalai Lama there was the k’ou-tou[5], or the act of prostration before the emperor. The reason for the different treatment given to the thirteenth Dalai Lama, in comparison to the one of the visit in the seventeenth century by the Great Fifth, was the intervention of Chang Yin-t’ang who had advised the government on the procedure to follow with the spiritual leader of the Gelug-pa[6]. Thubten Gyatsho had made no secret of his opposition to such a gesture, which would have been therefore replaced by a simple kneel[7]. The successor of Thubten Gyatsho, the fourteenth and current Dalai Lama Tenzin Gyatsho (Bstan-’dzin-rgya-mtsho), gave a purely religious interpretation to that genuflection: Tibetans considered the emperor as the body of manifestation of the bodhisattva Mañjuśrī (tib. ’Jam-dpal-dbyangs) and therefore Thubten Gyatsho knelt to the sprul-sku and not to the political leader of the Empire[8]. The audience, originally scheduled for October 6, also because of ceremonial matters, was then fixed for October 14, 1908[9].
While in Peking, Thubten Gyatsho had the opportunity to have direct or indirect contacts with several Western representatives: an envoy had gone to the British, Russian, German, American and French legations and Ministers of Washington and Paris had a private audience with the Dalai Lama. This created a certain discomfort with the Government of China[10]. For this reason, on October 8, 1908, the Wai-wu pu informed the Doyen of Diplomatic Body the days and times at which the foreign delegates could meet with the Dalai Lama, and only after they have been received and presented by a Chinese officer[11]. Just two days before, on October 6, the Dalai Lama met with William Woodville Rockhill, the US ambassador[12]. At the meeting there were no Chinese, and the American diplomat found Thubten Gyatsho “in a much less happy frame of mind than when I had seen him last; he was evidently irritable, preoccupied, and uncommunicative”[13]. A couple of weeks later, Dorjiev, who was in Peking with the Dalai Lama, shared the latter’s worries with Rockhill: Thubten Gyatsho saw his temporal power over Tibet threatened: after less than two centuries of substantial autonomy within the Manchu imperial system, Ch’ing Dynasty was rethinking the political and administrative status of Tibet[14]. The country, to be divided into administrative districts «as in China proper», would have been then hit by a series of reforms, to regulate the military, the infrastructures, monetary system, education and agriculture[15].

The US ambassador, however, although he was a connoisseur of historical and cultural issues of Asia, could not avoid comparing the Ch’ing Empire with a federal state and about this he wrote to President :
If these were really the reforms contemplated, I could not see what objections the Dalai Lama could have to them. Furthermore, military questions, relations with foreign States, educational questions (in some countries) were all Imperial matters which could not be left to the various States to deal with independently[16].
The Dalai Lama was concerned about a marginalization of Dge-lugs school and asked to continue to exercise the right to submit memorials to the emperor, after consultation with the Amban in Lhasa, without being obliged to go through the Viceroy of Ssu-ch’uan and the Li-fan yüan, a right that had been denied to him during his stay in Peking by the Li-fan yüan itself[17].

Before any meeting with the Dalai Lama, the British Ambassador to China Sir John Jordan consulted with his Russian counterpart Korostovetz, agreeing on a «purely ceremonial visit», to be made after the audience of the Dalai Lama to the court, and in any case informing the Wai-wu pu[18]
The problem was the political nature that the Dalai Lama seemed intent on giving to these contacts with Western diplomats. In fact, the envoy of the Dalai Lama had spoken to Korostovetz about the contrariety of Thubten Gyatsho about the k’ou-tou and reiterated the claims on the temporal power of Tibet[19].
Shortly after, the meetings with the Russians and the British were held[20]. The visit of Jordan took place on October 20, 1908[21]. After passing the entrance, controlled by two Tibetan soldiers with Russian rifles, the English delegates found themselves in front of the thirteenth Dalai Lama who «was seated cross-legged on yellow satin cushions placed on an altar-like table about 4 feet high, which stood in a recess or alcove»[22]. To his left, five seats for the delegation, to his right, the abbot of Drepung (’Bras-spungs) and the Tibetan-Chinese interpreter, a lama from the bordering area with Ssu-ch’uan[23]. The only Chinese in the room was a young interpreter of the Wai-wu pu, translating into English the Chinese and vice versa[24]. It was a very formal meeting, which lasted about eight minutes[25]. The Dalai Lama expressed his desire to erase the conflicts of the past, wishing a happy new course in relations between Tibet and the Raj and Jordan agreed to his request of handing his message of friendship to Edward VII[26].

The meeting with the Prince of Sikkim

On 25 November 1908, the Dalai Lama also met with Sidkeong Tulku Namgyel (Srid-skyong-sprul-sku-rnam-rgyal), Prince of Sikkim («Maharaj Kumar»)[27]. The young man had arrived at the Yellow Temple[28] around two in the afternoon, and stayed with the Dalai Lama for over two hours[29]. The two talked about their experiences abroad, the Prince in England and Europe, while the Dalai Lama of his travels after the escape from Lhasa and during which he had the opportunity to learn the Mongolian and Chinese languages[30]. In particular, during his stay in Mongolia, the Dalai Lama had been able to meet the Buddhist Mongols and receive affection and respect from them and hoped «to strengthen this influence and to extend it still further over other Buddhist countries in course of time»[31]. The Dalai Lama did not have a good impression of the Jetsun Dampa (Rje-btsun dam-pa)[32]. With regard to the relations with China, the Sikkimese Prince became aware that Thubten Gyatsho had little sympathy towards the Empire, with which he had to continue a forced coexistence[33]. At the same time the Dalai Lama had shown himself well-disposed towards the British and the Raj[34]. In this regard he was interested in the visit of the Panchen Lama in India and the very good hospitality that he had received from the British authorities[35]. Furthermore the Dalai Lama «said that he had been told that the English were the most honest amongst all the nations, and was that so? The Kumar replied in the affirmative, and added that they were the most powerful as well»[36]. The Dalai Lama had the intention, after his return to the Potala, to send some Tibetan students to the Raj to study medicine and other scientific subjects[37]. Another topic of conversation was the project to return the control to the Buddhists of the shrine of Bodh Gaya (at the time controlled by the Hindus), the place where Siddhārtha attained enlightenment[38]. The Dalai Lama would have participated actively in the project, at the request of the Prince, as «joint President» (together with the Panchen Lama) of the company that had to bring the issue forward and of which the Prince would have been the vice-president[39].

Going back to Lhasa

On November 14, 1908, the Emperor Kuang-hsü died, probably poisoned on the orders of Tz’u-hsi[40]. The Empress Dowager died the following day. The Celestial Empire was in the hands of a two-year old child, P’u-i. The thirteenth Dalai Lama left Peking on the morning of December 21, 1908[41]. He headed towards the monastery of Kumbum (Sku-’bum byams-pa gling), in Amdo (A-mdo), waiting “until he receives an Imperial letter, when he will be free to proceed to Lhassa”[42]. While the Dalai Lama was travelling, Sir Jordan received in
Peking, on January 4, 1909, a letter from the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Sir Edward Grey informing him of the response of a grateful Edward VII to the Dalai Lama[43]. Of course, at the time, it was not possible to deliver the message directly to Thubten Gyatsho and Jordan was not enthusiastic of the idea to go through the Wai-wu pu[44]. The alternative, suggested by Jordan, was to inform him through the Government of India on his arrival in Lhasa[45].

However, within the ceremonial dimension, the new friendship between the head of Tibet and the British was now clear. The meetings with foreign diplomats and the audience at court were the prelude to a radical reversal of the geopolitical map in which Tibet was inserted. Those that between 1903 and 1904 had invaded the Land of Snows would become, in early 1910, the new protectors of the Dalai Lama, again fleeing from Lhasa, but this time running away from a Manchu imperial power that will show its most cruel face in its last months of life.

DOOMSAYER – RED CHINA’S MELT DOWN -BEIJING IS DOOMED : RED CHINA’S ECONOMIC MELT DOWN IS REFLECTED BY THIS IMAGE OF LABOR ACTIONS SUCH AS STRIKES AND PROTESTS DURING 2015 AS COMPANIES FAIL TO PAY WAGES TO WORKERS. THE SIZE OF CIRCLES IS ACCORDING TO THE NUMBER OF LABOR ACTIONS PRIMARILY AT COMPANIES THAT CATER TO EXPORT MARKET.

At Special Frontier Force, I am known as ‘Doomsayer of Doom Dooma’ for I share a prophetic vision that predicts Red China’s “Doom” which means what is laid down, decree, judgment, a sentence of condemnation, destiny, tragic fate, ruin, and a penalty ordained by a Divine Force.

‘Melt Down’ is a situation in which a rapid rise in the power level of a nuclear reactor, as from a defect in the cooling system, results in the melting of fuel rods and release of dangerous radiation which may cause the core to sink into earth. Melt down refers to a sudden decline or breakdown in a situation or condition. In recent months, Red China is facing increasing economic woes and she is struggling to cope with this situation by turning to risky devaluation of her currency.

For I say, “Beijing Is Doomed,” no one can save Red China. “Pride goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.”(Book of Proverbs, 16:18)

China Turned to Risky Devaluation as Export Machine Stalled

BY KEITH BRADSHER AUGUST 17, 2015

HONG KONG — When Prime Minister Li Keqiang convened the Chinese cabinet last month, the troubled economy was the main topic on the agenda.
The stock market had stumbled after a yearlong boom. Money was flooding out of the country. Most ominously, China’s export machine had stalled, prompting labor strikes.
In a little-noted advisory to government agencies, the cabinet said it was essential to fix the export problem, and the currency had to be part of the solution.

With the government keeping a tight grip on the value of the renminbi, Chinese goods were more expensive than rivals’ products overseas. The currencies of other emerging markets had fallen, and China’s exporters could not easily compete.

Soon after, the Communist Party leaders issued a statement also urging action on exports.
It all set the stage for the currency devaluation last week that resulted in the biggest drop in the renminbi since 1994.

The cabinet’s call to action: The country needed to give the currency more flexibility and to reinvigorate exports. If officials did not act, China risked deeper turmoil at home, threatening the stability of the government.

HOW CHINA IS TRYING TO STABILIZE ITS ECONOMY

China’s devaluation of the renminbi was the latest in a series of moves over the past two months to help boost the slowing Chinese economy

But the sharp focus on the domestic agenda also complicates China’s global ambitions. By devaluing the currency, the authorities, who have been pushing a big expansion of global investments, are eroding some of the country’s buying power overseas.

China appears willing to make those trade-offs. Manufacturing, the core engine of growth in the world’s second-largest economy, is just too critical. And the pressures have been mounting, with exports last month plunging 8 percent compared with 2014.

The weakness is creating problems elsewhere in an economy already rattled by a real estate slump. Across the country, millions of workers and thousands of companies are feeling the pain, as sales slip and incomes drop.

Zhang Wei, a carpenter at a construction materials market in Guangzhou, says customers’ orders are plunging. Hu Sheng, a seller of metal siding, had to cut prices to the bone, and even then his sales dropped by a third.

At a covered market in Guangzhou, Zhang Xiaojun sat dejectedly behind a counter where half a dozen gutted, plucked chicken carcasses lay. “I was selling 30 to 40 chickens a day last year,†he said. “Now at best I sell only 10 chickens in a day, and I can’t make a living.â€

After the top-level meetings in July, officials moved quickly. On Aug. 11, the central bank announced a new policy for determining the value of the renminbi, saying it would allow market forces to play a greater role.

Although the central bank denied the decision was motivated by the export issue, officials were assured a quick, economic benefit. Once market forces were unleashed, they resulted in the sharp and swift decline of the currency, which dropped by 4.4 percent last week.

But the devaluation creates uncertainty, potentially undermining confidence in what had been the world’s steadiest and most enduring economy. It will also test President Xi Jinping and the leadership, as they try to balance their domestic needs and global expansion. A deteriorating economy could force them to pick between the two agendas.

“For Xi Jinping, domestic stability is the top priority,†said Willy Lam, a specialist in Beijing politics at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. “It’s going to be a higher priority than China’s international responsibilities.â€

A Shaky Foundation

The biggest casualties of the economic woes are the workers.

Zhou Ping, 23, moved from central China to Guangzhou in Guangdong Province three years ago and got hired cutting fabric at a garment factory. He lost his job three months ago and has been unable to find any work.

Labor unrest in China has increased as the country’s economy has faltered, especially in the provinces that produce goods for export. One focus now is on unpaid wages, a sign of struggling businesses in a troubled economy. Previous labor actions were largely about pay increases, reflecting a strong job market.Growing Unrest

“Competition is too intense; there are so many people fighting for each job,†he said. “However, I have no plans to return to my home province just yet. My friend is letting me take turns in his bunk bed.â€

While China lacks reliable unemployment statistics, the labor market is under significant pressure. Pay is barely climbing faster than consumer prices. Millions of Chinese are looking for work.

It is a sensitive issue. The leadership has indicated that slower economic growth is acceptable, provided the labor market remains strong. Any instability could prompt an internal debate about whether the government can manage a slowdown and still meet its global goals.
If President Xi cannot deliver rising living standards, “that will undermine the long-term sustainability of the regime,†said Li Daokui, an economist at Tsinghua University in Beijing.

When Deng Xiaoping began opening the country’s economy to capitalism and foreign investment in 1979, he started in a series of duck-farming villages in southeastern China’s Guangdong Province, next to Hong Kong. His successors subsequently built on the plan, turning the experiment into the world’s biggest hub of light industry manufacturing, producing items like microwave ovens and laptop computers.

The area is a crucial backbone of China’s economic story. Guangdong’s main cities — Shenzhen, Dongguan and Guangzhou — developed into a vast urban sprawl, each with a population the size of Los Angeles.

As exports surged, the country produced double-digit growth for decades. The newfound wealth prompted China to find opportunities overseas, which helped expand its international influence and support its domestic needs.

But the export business is now suffering.

Sales have slumped for furniture makers, for example, as demand overseas has flagged, particularly in Europe. Chinese families are also buying less, as sagging home sales and real estate prices mean fewer people need to decorate new apartments.

“Many furniture factories in the Guangzhou area have closed over the past year,†said Rachel Wang, the sales manager at Hongyuan Furniture Manufacturing, a Guangzhou maker of home saunas. Hongyuan Furniture has helped offset a slowdown in Europe by expanding to Australia.

Charles M. Hubbs, the owner of Premier Guard, which makes medical equipment in Guangdong Province, said the devaluation would help, estimating the currency drop would add $300,000 a year in profit. But it’s not enough, he said, to make the company more competitive.

Despite the problems in the job market, monthly factory wages, which have increased tenfold at Premier Guard over the last decade, remain high and eat into profit. Mr. Hubbs is considering moving part of his manufacturing operation to Texas, as a way to reduce freight costs and to avoid American import taxes.

Even if the currency drops by 8 to 9 percent, it is “not going to bring any business back to China,†he said. “Nobody’s going to come back to China,†for fear the renminbi might strengthen later.

As sales fall and factories close, strikes and other labor actions have been increasing, to nearly 200 a month, according to the China Labor Bulletin, a nonprofit group based in Hong Kong that calls for collective bargaining rights. Four years ago, it was around a dozen a month.

At the Zhanheng Toys Electronics Company in Dongguan, 700 workers raucously demonstrated on Aug. 4, demanding back wages. Management had suddenly left and stopped paying workers.

Such disappearances are common in China. If they stick around, managers of failed companies may be detained by the police, who search for signs of embezzlement and try to force executives to dig into their savings to pay creditors.

“The Hong Kong boss ran away,†said a security guard at Zhanheng’s front gate on Thursday afternoon who declined to give his name. No managers were left to answer questions, the guard added. The local government ended up paying the back wages a day later. It is a routine practice after business failures in China, where local governments are responsible for maintaining social stability.

Wu Yukan, a plastics distributor who is also the vice chairman of the local chamber of commerce, came to the factory gate in a black Audi with two aides.

“This factory owes me hundreds of thousands of renminbi for raw materials,†he said. “The economy is not doing well. I have other clients who also owe me a lot of money, and from whom I have not been able to collect as well.â€

Balancing Needs

Over a thousand miles away from the turmoil in Guangdong, at a monolithic building in Beijing, Zhou Xiaochuan, the governor of the People’s Bank of China, has the task of guiding the currency at a complicated time, at home and abroad.

Tall, cerebral and urbane, he has written a series of books and long academic articles in Chinese on economics. He taught himself English. He has been steeped in Communist Party politics from childhood. His father, a deputy minister in the early 1960s, mentored a young Jiang Zemin, who later served as China’s leader for a decade.

Mr. Zhou needs those economic and political strengths, as the country tries to rev up exports and keep its international expansion on track.
While he needs to let the renminbi respond to the market, he must also maintain control over the currency. Mr. Zhou also wants to convince the world that the renminbi deserves a place among the elite group of global reserve currencies, which includes the dollar, euro, yen and pound.

the-yen-won-and-renminbi-a-triangular-guide-to-the-east-asian-currency-wars-1439515037176-master180.jpg

 


In March, Mr. Zhou welcomed Christine Lagarde, the managing director of the International Monetary Fund, to a conference in Beijing. He told Ms. Lagarde and top global bankers that he would dismantle the many currency restrictions.

“A set of pilot policies and regulations will be released this year, to basically achieve the requirements for a currency that can be used more easily,†he said.

Mr. Zhou was making the case that China could meet the I.M.F. requirements for joining the basket of global reserve currencies known as the special drawing rights. The biggest test was whether the renminbi was considered “freely usable.â€

For years, China set an initial price for the renminbi in dollars each morning and then allowed the currency to trade in a narrow band. The initial price was somewhat arbitrary. A week before the devaluation, an I.M.F. report expressed concerns, suggesting a more market-oriented approach.

Starting last Tuesday, the central bank said it would give the market more sway, basing the initial level on the previous closing price. The I.M.F. gave its cautious approval, saying it “appears a welcome step.†But the execution, the fund said, would be critical.
Mr. Zhou faces a delicate task.

the-world-according-to-china-investment-maps-1436222568352-master180.png

 


THE WORLD ACCORDING TO CHINA

He used to be able to set monetary policy without worrying that money would rush out of the country if interest rates were too low or the currency too high. With the loosening of controls on moving large sums of money, he must now navigate the pressures of the market.
He also has to appease many constituencies.

The commerce ministry has long lobbied for a weak renminbi to help the country’s exporters. But Mr. Zhou can’t let the currency drop too much, lest he antagonize the Chinese companies investing abroad and the Chinese families sending students overseas.
“You see it as more than 100 million Chinese travel abroad, and there are more than 800,000 Chinese students studying overseas,†said Yu Yongding, a former member of the central bank’s monetary policy committee. “They want a strong renminbi.â€

Erica Law, a 27-year-old Chinese investment banker, sat in a Starbucks in Guangzhou on Thursday, talking about her plans to buy an apartment in Europe.
As a student, Ms. Law studied and traveled in Europe. She has since returned on vacations, maintaining a love affair with a continent that, with its clean air and well-preserved historic monuments, still seems so different from China.

The exchange rate now factors into her plans.
“The recent days of renminbi devaluation are not of that much concern,†she said. “However, if the devaluation trend continues and reaches for example 10 to 20 percent, then it will really affect my travel and investment decisions — perhaps at that time, I will consider more vacation and investing options closer to home.â€

DOOMSAYER – BEIJING IS DOOMED – TIANJIN EXPLOSION

doomsayer tianjin explosion great misery
doomsayer Tianjin explosion great misery

At Special Frontier Force, I have identified myself as ‘Doomsayer of Doom Dooma’ and I predicted tragic fate, ruin, destiny of Red China when I claimed ‘Beijing is Doomed’. However, I express my sense of great sorrow for the sudden, unexpected, enormous explosion at a warehouse in Tianjin on August 13, 2015. This is a calamity that brings deep trouble, great misery, and great loss. This disaster is extremely unfortunate for it caused great damage resulting in loss of human lives, and property bringing deep distress to people involved in this happening. This extreme misfortune generates great feelings of compassion, the same feelings that I use to uplift deep sorrow experienced by Tibetans living under brutal oppression.

THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA – DOOMSDAY PROPHECY

Posted on Updated on

THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA – DOOMSDAY PROPHECY

THE EVIL RED EMPIRE - RED CHINA - DOOMSDAY PROPHECY FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT BOOK "REVELATION" CHAPTER 18.
THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA – DOOMSDAY PROPHECY FROM THE NEW TESTAMENT BOOK “REVELATION” CHAPTER 18.

The New Testament Book “REVELATION” shared a prophecy predicting sudden, unexpected, fall of an evil empire using coded name “BABYLON.” Planet Earth has already witnessed several impacts by heavenly bodies called asteroids, or meteorites with known or unknown consequences to life on Earth. The most significant asteroid impact event may have happened 65 million years ago which wiped out a huge variety of animals collectively known as ‘Dinosaurs’ and surprisingly, life thrived on Earth with emergence of new species that populate Earth in present times. Without any human initiative, without any human intervention, Earth may be hit by a very large stone that would result in the downfall of an evil empire while sparing rest of the humanity. I am asking my readers to contemplate on Doomsday Prophecy found in ‘Revelation’ Chapter 18 and compare its scenario with some of Earth’s recorded asteroid/meteorite impact events:

Doomsayer of Doom Dooma: Qaraqul crater, Black Lake, Pamir mountains, Tajikistan.

1. Qaraqul crater, Palmir mountains, located between Tajikistan and Afghanistan. The impact happened 10 million years ago, created Black Lake which is 45 kilometers wide.

6. Chicxulub crater, Yucatan Peninsula, Gulf of Mexico. A very significant, dangerous asteroid impact event that may have caused extinction of entire Dinosaur species 65 million years ago. Asteroid could be 10 and 20 kilometers in diameter and caused 70 kilometers wide crater.

7. Arizona’s Menlo Park crater near Flagstaff, Arizona. Impact event 49,000 years old. Crater is 1186 meters in diameter.

As Doomsayer of Doom Dooma, I am predicting an impact event that would cause demise of Evil Power ruling Beijing. However, the actual impact may affect Shanghai, Red China’s largest City without causing loss of human lives as people get a warning and given chance to run away from impending danger.

THE EVIL RED EMPIRE – RED CHINA – DOOMSDAY PROPHECY.

REVELATION 18 NEW INTERNATIONAL VERSION(NIV)

LAMENT OVER FALLEN BABYLON
18 After this I saw another angel coming down from heaven. He had great
authority, and the earth was illuminated by his splendor.

2 With a mighty voice he shouted:

“‘Fallen! Fallen is Babylon the Great!’[a]
She has become a dwelling for demons
and a haunt for every impure spirit,
a haunt for every unclean bird,
a haunt for every unclean and detestable animal.
3 For all the nations have drunk
the maddening wine of her adulteries.
The kings of the earth committed adultery with her,
and the merchants of the earth grew rich from her excessive luxuries.”

WARNING TO ESCAPE BABYLON’S JUDGMENT

4 Then I heard another voice from heaven say:

“‘Come out of her, my people,’[b]
so that you will not share in her sins,
so that you will not receive any of her plagues;
5 for her sins are piled up to heaven,
and God has remembered her crimes.
6 Give back to her as she has given;
pay her back double for what she has done.
Pour her a double portion from her own cup.
7 Give her as much torment and grief
as the glory and luxury she gave herself.
In her heart she boasts,
‘I sit enthroned as queen.
I am not a widow;[c]
I will never mourn.’
8 Therefore in one day her plagues will overtake her:
death, mourning and famine.
She will be consumed by fire,
for mighty is the Lord God who judges her.

THREEFOLD WOE OVER BABYLON’S FALL

9 “When the kings of the earth who committed adultery with her and shared
her luxury see the smoke of her burning, they will weep and mourn over her.
10 Terrified at her torment, they will stand far off and cry:

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
you mighty city of Babylon!
In one hour your doom has come!’

11 “The merchants of the earth will weep and mourn over her because no one
buys their cargoes anymore—

12 cargoes of gold, silver, precious stones and
pearls; fine linen, purple, silk and scarlet cloth; every sort of citron
wood, and articles of every kind made of ivory, costly wood, bronze, iron
and marble;

13 cargoes of cinnamon and spice, of incense, myrrh and
frankincense, of wine and olive oil, of fine flour and wheat; cattle and
sheep; horses and carriages; and human beings sold as slaves.

14 “They will say, ‘The fruit you longed for is gone from you. All your

luxury and splendor have vanished, never to be recovered.’

15 The merchants who sold these things and gained their wealth from her will stand far off,
terrified at her torment. They will weep and mourn

16 and cry out:

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
dressed in fine linen, purple and scarlet,
and glittering with gold, precious stones and pearls!
17 In one hour such great wealth has been brought to ruin!’
“Every sea captain, and all who travel by ship, the sailors, and all who
earn their living from the sea, will stand far off. 18 When they see the
smoke of her burning, they will exclaim, ‘Was there ever a city like this
great city?’

19 They will throw dust on their heads, and with weeping and
mourning cry out:

“‘Woe! Woe to you, great city,
where all who had ships on the sea
became rich through her wealth!
In one hour she has been brought to ruin!’

20 “Rejoice over her, you heavens!
Rejoice, you people of God!
Rejoice, apostles and prophets!
For God has judged her
with the judgment she imposed on you.”

THE FINALITY OF BABYLON’S DOOM
21 Then a mighty angel picked up a boulder the size of a large millstone and
threw it into the sea, and said:

“With such violence
the great city of Babylon will be thrown down,
never to be found again.
22 The music of harpists and musicians, pipers and trumpeters,
will never be heard in you again.
No worker of any trade
will ever be found in you again.
The sound of a millstone
will never be heard in you again.
23 The light of a lamp
will never shine in you again.
The voice of bridegroom and bride
will never be heard in you again.
Your merchants were the world’s important people.
By your magic spell all the nations were led astray.
24 In her was found the blood of prophets and of God’s holy people,
of all who have been slaughtered on the earth.”
