Does anyone else here think China's reaction to jailed dissident Liu Xiaobo's being named the recipient of the 2010 Nobel Peace Prize appears an awful lot like what we might expect from N. Korea?

I mean, seriously! Here in the U.S. we don't jail dissidents, so that fact alone is laughable. I find their reaction to Liu's winning the prize for his long-term peaceful efforts to help improve his country's government just absurd. If anything, China's reaction is bona-fide evidence of the reasons why China government is in serious need of improvement, as well as why Liu won the prize in the first place.

Agree? Disagree?

I chose "Nothing wrong with it. Different country, different rules. ".

For "It's wrong, and highlights a need for reform.", we are just dreaming. Even if there can be a such reform, the consequences can be quite ugly.

I hate biased polls.

What do you mean "biased?" It's about as unbiased as polls can get.

If you think nothing is wrong with it because the US should be more like China there is no answer available for you

I just figured a step further, if the questions are loaded the poll is biased.

Tell you what - let's please stick with the OP and let us know how you feel about China's reaction rather than what you think about the poll.

Thanks.

Thanks.

But the poll is about China's reaction. It's part of the OP.
