    This shows how though China is a closed society politically, there are intrigues afoot.

    Maybe our Chinese posters could throw more light in what is going on and what is being said on the internet in China.

    One wonder is Mr Wang is dead or alive!

    What did he tell the US consulate people?

    What is meant that Mr Wang was a pawn?

    What was the big game he was a pawn about?

    Maybe our Chinese posters would help understand what is and was going on in Chinese politics.

    Stephen Harper is the Canadian PM.

    Canada wants "mutual respect" from China on trade

    CHONGQING, China (Reuters) - Some Canadian resource firms are being treated unfairly in China and Beijing must deal with the problem if it wants a proper trading relationship with energy-rich Canada, a top official told Reuters on Saturday.

    China is keen to one day import Canadian crude to help fuel its rapidly-expanding economy.

    Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver, speaking during a trade mission designed in large part to sell oil to China, said some Canadian companies were having trouble obtaining permits to develop sites.

    "If we want to build a long-term strategic relationship with China, which we do, and which the Chinese have said they want to build with us, it has to be based on mutual respect, reciprocity and equality," Oliver told Reuters in an interview.

    "So we would like to see Canadian companies treated as well as Chinese companies are treated in Canada. And that's the issue and I think it's a serious issue ... it's one of the issues that needs to be addressed as we move to the next step in our relationship."

    Mr. Wang must have been a CIA agent working for US and hence his swift disappearance and probable death after his visit to US consulate..

    Was he trying to defect?

    Did the US get cold feet and hand him over to the Chinese?

    Or is a part of a Chinese high level plot and internal political intrigue?

    What is “Vacation-style medical treatment”?

    Appears to be some high level political intrigue and jockeying for power!

    Interesting points are raised by this article from China Post throwing more light on this mystery.

    Why did Wang seek asylum in the US embassy. Either he was a CIA agent or he had much to leak about the power struggle that was afoot in China before the selection for the Politburo!

    This has naturally given rise to the egenral belief that all is not well with the CCP, no matter now much China wants to show that it is an united monolith that responds to national aspirations alone and beyond personal ambitions!

    Indeed Wang is now on a 'healing vacation'. In other words, being given the hiding of his life!

    This part of the report indicates the usual manner of China to hide the truth and instead obfuscate or cover with falsehood and which are Chinese posters also emulate.

    Imagine a hale and hearty man, who has done so much good, all of a sudden has fallen ill as result of “long-term stress and overwork.

    What tommy rot!

    Who are they trying to fool?
