是中国人都要听

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

中国驻日内瓦联合国大使,针对美国批评中国扩张军备,近日接受了BBC的专访。在节目中,沙大使义正词严,豪情盖天,对美国人怒吼了一句:Shut up!

这在中国外交官中是不多见的。中国外交人员平常给人的印象是温良恭俭让、王顾左右而言他,但是沙大使毫不隐瞒对美国人的鄙视,让美国人闭嘴、收声,写下了了新政时期实力外交的新篇章。

这段录音是我从2006年8月17日BBC的节目中剪辑制作出来的,现在免费放到网上。所有懂英语的中国人,都应当听;不懂英语的中国人,学会英语也要听;所有国际友人,尤其是喜读江选的友人,更应该听!

所有博客管理者,都应当把本录音上首页;所有BBS斑竹,都应当把本录音置顶!

China’s economy is expanding fast, but its militay expanding is going faster.

Robert Captlin, who teaches at the US Navy Acedemy , says it is going to change the balance of power in Asia.

“China is re-emerging totally legitimately as a great economic power and throughout history when large countries emerged as great economic powers, military might follow. ”

And that’s got the Pentagon worried while the White House is upset with the war on terror. US Defence Secrect Donald Ramsfield says that China spends a lot on arms secretly. He believes it is now the world’s biggest military spender after US and Russia. Robert Captlin again.

” The Chinses defence budget has been growing in double digits relative to the total economy for years now. That in all of itself shows dramatic rises in defence spending that are not across the board are extremly well-targeted by not just diesel but nuclear power, submarines, make investements in missile technology that can hit moving targets it sees”.

“It’s better for you to shut up and keep quiet. it’s much much better .”

Rebus language from one of China’s most senior diplomats Sha Zukang, China ambassor to the UN in Geneva. In a far from inscrutable interview for the BBC, he said he is tired of lectures on defence spending, expecially lectures from Washington.

“What I want to tell you is that are you the number one? Is it true that you have almost 50% of the world’s military budget? And China’s population is six times or five times that of the United States. Why blame China? No! Forget it. It’s high time to shut up! It’s US sovereign right to do whatever they think good for them. But don’t tell us what is good for China. Thank you very much.”

So, why is China spending so much on its military,particularily, its navy? Analysis’ say the reason is tied up with the central-formed policy preoccupation–Taiwan.

“Taiwan prepares its defences, China’s exercises off the coast have begun.”

10 years ago China launched a huge military excercise in a spat over Taiwanese move towards independence. President Clinton sent two aircraft carriers to warn the Chinese off. Robert Captlin says that incident focused the minds of Chinese military planners, that’s changing the rules of the game for America.

“In Iraq, we’ve seen the low end of ancient method of warfare. The Chinese are about to teach us many lessons in the coming decade in the high end. Remember, the United States’ navy has been used to going completely unchallenged. That is gonna change, because the Chinese are investing heavily in submarines and missile technology that can essentially lock the United States out of the Taiwan straits.”

That won’t mean the Chinese navy could defeat the Americans, but they could constrain them.

Ambassdor Sha’s unequivocal that it’s a cause for which China will go to the war.
“The moment of taiwan’s declaire of independence supported by whoever,China will have no choice. We will do the business through whatever means available to my government. Nobody should have illusion on that. We will do the business at any cost, ”

“So high price to pay…

“You are right, you are right. You know, I said at any cost. It’s not a matter of how big taiwan is,but for China,one inch of the territory is more valuable than the life of our people.We will never concealed that.”

铅笔

Thursday, July 6th, 2006

pencil

本来已经弃笔多年,以前只有三种场合能用到笔。1、领汇款或寄包裹,在邮局的柜台上,用栓着小绳的圆珠笔,这种笔非常紧俏,而且往往不下水。2、开会,拿个笔记本,拿个签字笔,领导讲话的时候装模作样地写两笔。3、刷卡之后签字。

此外基本上跟笔绝缘了。然而,阿甘他妈说的,生活就像吃杏仁,不知道那一颗是苦的。半年前偶然的机会,我背起书包,重返校园。

我要把适度的赞美献给伊丽莎白第二女王,在她的治下,英国有了贝克汉姆,有了BBC网站,也有了雅思考试。

雅思考试是剑桥大学和英国文化处的超级印钞机(Money-spinning machine),每个考生费用是1470人民币,合100镑,在一百多个国家,每周都有一次考试。以杭州为例,半月考一次,我参加的是5月27日的考试,当时考生有240名,一年算下来就是26 * 240 * 100 = 624 000镑。扩大到全国、全世界,这笔钱是一个很大的数目。

雅思考试答卷全部用铅笔完成,包括作文也是如此。铅笔,转笔刀,文具盒,这些小学时代的玩意,又被我们重新拾起来。

粗算一下,半年时间我一共用了26只铅笔。用铅笔我很挑剔, 中华我是不用的,因为班上其他人都用这个。自动铅笔我从小就鄙视,觉得那属懒汉与文盲专用。我用一种“德国-辉柏嘉”牌子的木质铅笔,顶端带橡皮。在超市里买的,一买一包,一包10支,还送一把转笔刀。

用铅笔书写的感觉真好!铅笔与其他笔相比有几大优势。一、可擦可改,随心书写;二、写的时候要时不时停下来削一削,怡情悦性,放松神经;三、用铅笔画过的书本、材料,可以传给后人,后来者可以把答案擦掉,循环使用。

铅笔还有一大功能,它能让人变得智慧。我们知道,铅笔写的文字不会保存太久,纸张的摩擦,字迹不久就会模糊。这里面一定隐藏着神秘的哲学。一切记录都是不可靠的,一切文字都会消失,一切都只是一个过程,一切都会随着时间淡去……就像雅思试题,做完之后,再看它一眼不知要什么时候;就像英语笔记,密密匝匝,厚厚叠叠,但很快就会跟记忆一起淡出。尘归尘,土归土,一切都会消逝得无踪无迹。

铅笔对我来说不仅仅是一种工具,它是扑朔迷离的生活,它是万籁无声的叹息,它是沧海茫茫的彼岸,它是支离破碎的记忆。
