#1 Although he handed over a treasure trove of intelligence, Mr. Wang was told he could not be granted asylum. He left the consulate and was taken into custody, where he has been since.

#2 I have to wonder how many walk-ins from hostile countries have been told they cannot defect by US embassy/consulate officials.

#3 Typical NY Times bullshit. Bo didn't go the US consulate to try and defect, he went there to hole up until his buddies from the central government could get there with the cavalry to save his sorry ass. The locals had the consulate surrounded and the central government had to fight its way through to rescue him.
The British guy was a dumbass, never get involved in politics. Some foreigners seem to just forget they're foreigners. Typical Chinese murder, alcohol poisoning but the man was a teetotaler, and body cremated immediately afterwards without consent from the family.

I must agree - one of the historical promises of the CCCC now CCP/CPC has been to return China to its former glory. As OWG-NWO is IMO akin to PROTO SPACE GOVT-ORDER, China could easily end up becom a GIANT VERSION OF NORTH KOREA, LOST IN THE CONFUSION OF A WORLDWIDE = GLOBAL REORGZ FOR SPACE TRAVEL + COLONIZATION.
