dont be so thick! Chinese soldiers queueing up in public to put on robes, use your head!
picture is ridiculously out of context. Yes, china is engaged in human rights abuses. No, this picture doesnt show it.
circulating this sort of twaddle only makes you look stupid.

I feel you have embarrassed yourself with this comment. If you read the post, firstly, when the picture had been passed to the SLLU, I placed it on the blog saying it "seemingly" showed the army with etc...

Yep - they were. This photo was passed around various web 2.0 networks. It has been proved to be false. It was of a film shoot from a few years previous to the events it was being said to portray.
