    Default Communist China: ‘Private Ownership Of Guns’ In U.S. ‘Serious Problem,’ Must ‘Change’


    Communist China: ‘Private Ownership Of Guns’ In U.S. ‘Serious Problem,’ Must ‘Change’

    December 31, 2019

    Communist China, which currently has millions of people locked away in concentration camps, said in state-controlled media this week that the Second Amendment is a “serious problem” and that there needs to be “change” in how the American public views “private ownership of guns.”

    The Global Times, which is Chinese state-run media, published the op-ed after a good guy with a gun in Texas stopped a shooting in a church.

    China mocked the United States, saying that “shootings are shocking in a US allegedly governed by law”:

    Private gun ownership is a tradition from the early days at the founding of the US. In a modern society, the problems created by this tradition have already exceeded the benefits. …

    American society has already seen serious problems caused by the private ownership of guns, but their massive number has contributed to an enormous inertia. Many interest groups have benefited from it and some ordinary people have truly gained a sense of safety. To change this habit which has lasted hundreds of years, tremendous political courage and a rearrangement of interests is required.

    Facts have proved that the US system is unable to handle the intricacies of countless issues around guns including politics, economics, law and order and public psychology. The country can neither manage the safe storage and use of so many guns owned by ordinary people, nor can it establish a new national system that bans or strictly restricts guns. It cannot even form an overwhelming opinion regarding gun issues.

    China’s attack on the Second Amendment comes after Hong Kong protesters have requested to have their own Second Amendment so they can defend themselves from the oppressive communist Chinese government.

    The Wall Street Journal reported on Saturday that Chinese dictator Xi Jinping had received a title that was normally reserved for Communist China’s founder Mao Zedong, who is the most prolific mass murderer in human history:

    During a two-day meeting that ended Friday, chaired by Mr. Xi, the party’s 25-member Politburo hailed his policies as visionary and described him as the renmin lingxiu, or “people’s leader,” a designation that directly echoes an accolade most closely associated with Communist China’s founder Mao Zedong.

    Sen. Ben Sasse (R-NE) fired back at Xi in a statement that highlighted just a few of the horrifying human rights abuses that communist China is inflicting on its citizens. Sasse wrote:

    If Chairman Xi is the “people’s leader,” who are the people? When Chairman Xi talks about “the people,” he doesn’t mean the Uyghurs in torture camps. When Chairman Xi talks about “the people,’ he doesn’t mean the Falun Gong prisoners whose organs are harvested. When Chairman Xi talks about “the people,” he doesn’t mean the baby girls who were left to die under China’s one-child policy. When Chairman Xi talks about “the people,” he means what every communist hack before him has meant: not the people but the communist party.

    As The Daily Wire has highlighted, “China has been under intense scrutiny as the communist nation has millions of Muslims locked in concentration camps, is harvesting organs from detainees, and has created a massive surveillance state that it is reportedly exporting to countries around the world.”

    Flashbacks:
    U.N. peacekeepers can shorten civil wars, but it takes lots of troops

    United Nations peacekeeping operations can shorten civil wars, but need robust troop deployments to move parties toward negotiated settlements such as ceasefires and peace agreements, researchers say.

    While most research on PKOs measure their influence on maintaining postwar peace, a new study instead addresses the UN peacekeeping operations’ ability to increase the likelihood of a peaceful conflict resolution.

    “Since the end of the Cold War, UN troops have been entering active conflicts, often peacemaking, not peacekeeping,” says Michelle Benson, an associate professor in the political science department at the University at Buffalo. “And not all of these operations are created the same in their ability to facilitate faster negotiated settlements.
    “The UN is not only able to improve the conflict situation. It’s able to bring conflicts to a conclusion in a peaceful manner.”
    “Peacekeeping forces in the range of approximately 10,000 troops significantly improve the likelihood of ending hostilities. Failing to meet those numbers will make the effort much less effective.”

    Benson and coauthor Jacob Kathman, associate professor of political science, used fine-grained monthly data sets built from Kathman’s UN peacekeeping troop data and the Peace Research Institute Oslo’s Uppsala Conflict Data Program. The findings appear in the Journal of Conflict Resolution.

    Civil wars can end in a number of ways, Benson says. One side can emerge victorious. Violence can subside without a clear victor, but with the underlying cause of the conflict remaining unresolved. Then there are peace agreements and other official ways to end the fighting, such as ceasefires.

    “That’s what we look at in this study: How do you get to a peaceful negotiated settlement and are peacekeepers able to facilitate that,” says Benson. “We found that the presence of a sufficient number of peacekeepers decreased the time to a peaceful negotiated settlement.”

    The UN deploys peacekeeping operations when the permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, the Russian Federation, the United Kingdom, and the United States) authorize troop funding, which is then subject to General Assembly approval. The UN has no standing army. Member states provide troops for the operation on a voluntary basis.

    For the study, Kathman and Benson build on previous research on how the UN affects civil war. They say their paper has important policy implications that help validate the effectiveness of PKOs and supports the idea that the UN should outfit peacekeeping efforts with sufficient troop numbers required to reduce the hostility and intractability of civil conflicts.

    “From prior research on the UN, we know that UN peacekeepers are able to reduce civilian deaths and casualties and sometimes able to reduce the number of battlefield fatalities,” Benson says. “But what happens if these troops dampen the active fighting to the point that a low-level conflict remains, what’s called a ‘hurting stalemate’?”

    In the absence of a peaceful resolution, the “hurting stalemate” could mean a reduction in the immediate number of deaths, but the enduring balance of forces might eventually translate to a high number of deaths in the long term. “That’s what we wanted to determine,” Benson says.

    The researchers theorize that facilitating a security guarantee and separating combatants are among the mechanisms that troops use to facilitate a settlement.

    With substantial troop deployments, the UN can help separate the combatants, assist with disarmament, and provide a clear path for the unobstructed flow of information between sides, allowing the warring parties to move more quickly toward settlements.

    “The UN is not only able to improve the conflict situation,” says Benson. “It’s able to bring conflicts to a conclusion in a peaceful manner.”

    “Considered in its broader context, these are important findings,” says Kathman. “The UN’s reputation amongst the American public is one of relative impotence, but our findings contribute to a growing consensus of rigorous analyses that UN peacekeeping works.

    “In many cases, if peacekeeping operations hadn’t been deployed, those conflicts would likely have been much more violent and protracted.”
