The article reads, “Bo, once widely considered a contender for top office, was expelled from the party this year and faces possible charges of corruption and abuse of power. His wife was jailed for murdering a British businessman in a scandal that has shaken the country and raised unsettling questions about the party’s leadership.”

In fact, the murder was ordered by Beijing, and Gu Kailai, the wife of Bo Xilai, did NOT kill British businessman Neil Heywood. If she had, we wouldn’t know about it, for someone else would have been framed for the murder, naturally!

Purpose for this Communist Party operation? Simple, another of the many news stories to come out of China painting a picture of corruption and other crimes in high political Communist circles, the purpose for such “exposes” to convince the West that the upcoming “collapse” of the Chinese Communist government will be well deserved:

“Since at least the early 1970s, the Communist party of China has been poised to create a spectacular but controlled “democratization” at any appropriate time. The party had by then spent two decades consolidating its power, building a network of informants and agents that permeate every aspect of Chinese life, both in the cities and in the countryside. Government control is now so complete that it will not be seriously disturbed by free speech and democratic elections; power can now be exerted through the all-pervasive but largely invisible infrastructure of control. A transition to an apparently new system, using dialectical tactics, is now starting to occur.” — Playing the China Card (The New American, Jan. 1, 1991).
