Issue about CHINA

Adept Kung  "Is there any one word that could guide a person throughout life?"
       
    "How about 'shu' [reciprocity]: never impose on others what you would not choose for yourself?" ------  CONFUCIUS ( The GOLDEN RULE )

"Just as you want others to do for you, do the same for them."
                                                        ---- JESUS CHRIST

They were able to produced the most expensive games ever. They were able to showcased the most spectacular Olympics Opening Ceremony ever produced.They were able to display CHINA as a newest world's super power. But all the glory of CHINA was easily stained and replaced with controversies, and issues about CHEATING.From the Computer Generated Fireworks Display of the opening ceremony,the  Chinese Girl  "Lin Miaoke" who lip-synched Yang Peiyi's voice because Lin Miaoke is more photogenic, to the most controversial issue, the alleged cheating of China's Women's Gymnastics Team (speculations of forging the team members passports, the deletion of team member's information on Chinese websites, and team member's interview posted on the internet in the recent years) . 

And now China is facing another problem: the Milk scandal where milk products from China had been adulterated with melamine, (which I think is another form of cheating).Melamine appeared to have been added to milk in order to cause it to appear to have a higher protein content and to pass quality tests. The effect of this form of cheating affected other countries as well having products containing adulterated milk from China. In China alone, thousands caught ill with the use of this contaminated milk, and four innocent babies were the fatalities caused by kidney stones and other renal failure. Here's the catch, according to the reports, the Milk scandal came to international awareness a month after the Olmypics( with the help of New Zealand-based dairy company Fonterra ), but according to Chinese  State Council investigation revealed that Sanlu began receiving complaints about sick infants as far back as December 2007, but did no tests until June 2008. How come that this milk contaminated reports only surfaced a month after the Olympics? according to Reuters, China has said the city government in Shijiazhuang, home to the Sanlu Group whose contaminated milk powder sparked the scare, sat on a report from the company about the tainting for more than a month, while Beijing hosted the Olympic Games.

The family is the smallest unit of the society but it is the most important building block of the society. I believe that a good COUNTRY comprises of value oriented family.   

You can't just cover  up the stench of a rotten thing  with a perfume. When a basket of fruit is placed with a single rotten fruit, all other fruits in that basket will be affected. The only way to prevent this is to remove that rotten fruit. The only way to make our government clean is to remove officials with corrupt minds that corrupting the society.The best way, go back to the basic; Always follow the GOLDEN RULE!
