    I wonder if China would take all attempt to overturn their verdicts as hallmarks to freedom of speech and thought.

    The Chinese philosophy revolves around stability and harmony even if it is ruthlessly enforced.

    They would sure take this to be interference in their domestic affairs and they will surely retaliate in words and action.

    One wonders what will be the Chinese modus operandi to take this on.

    Personally I think arresting and harrassing reporters is counter productive, think about Vaclac Havel, Andrei Saharov... the oppressor always loses. If I was Chinese leader, I would start Glasnost like openness in China, open up slowly reform to multi party state. China is now economically very strong, Gorbatchevs Russia was very weak and that is why reforms failed.

    China should take bold leap to this direction, open up and become even stronger than it already is.

    What you state makes sense, but not to the Chinese.

    They do not allow any dissent.
