WE WILL TRAIN OUR BLUE-EYED MEN (via Kevin Whited):

China sets up riot police units (BBC, 8/18/05)

China is setting up special police units in 36 cities to put down riots and counter what the authorities call the threat of terrorism.

Chinese state media said one of the first such forces, comprising 500 officers, had just been set up in Zhengzhou in central Henan province.

Correspondents say unrest has become more frequent in China, often due to land disputes or economic inequality.

There has also been increased coverage of such events in the Chinese press.


When China goes bung you'll get a free tank of gas with every NFL glass you purchase.

Don't those NFL glasses have "Made in China" stamped on the bottom?

Nice Clash reference, although how many Chinese people do you know with blue eyes?
