What - no riot?

I think we always knew that the cartoon riots were about a lot more than silly pictures. They were part of a general anti-West cultural Mau-Mau'ing.

Case in point - look at cartoon on the 4th part of CNN's bit on Pandaman's creator Remon Wang.



No one seems to be attacking the Chinese embassy, eh? I'll let you figure it out on your own.

Hat tip Dan.

I bet the response from the Chinese Embassy would be according to rule 7,62x39 - and that is exact reason why there is no riot.

Of course nobody riots about China.

China isn't an imperialist power with troops in Tibet, Sudan, Zimbabwe, and threatening a country founded by those who fled the Communists. It isn't as if Communist China violates human rights or has a record of viciousness.
