Tink, I don't get it...it sounds like they are putting static into the music, then? Is it maybe they are not after the music specifically, maybe the Chinese don't want you to hear anything from Taiwan, VOA, BBC etc?

No, I think the music is the jamming signal, which drowns out the spoken programs the CCP doesn't want its population to hear.

Are you really surprised? Those damn chinks will do just about anything to suppress their people and keep them under control. 

Not very hard to jam those signals and I can't see why they would but I'll never understand commie regimes much.

Not surprised at all, Rooster... totalitarian regimes can only stay in control by force, and that means (among many other things) controlling information. We are unfortunately moving in that very direction here in the US. with the unholy alliance of Big Tech, the MSM and the Democrats.

Which leads me to a thought about just that and North Korea.  Have you ever wondered why, by this point, some member of the military with nothing to lose hasn't double-tapped Fat Bastard and his line of succession?  I'm serious.  

If you'd ever read Edwin Hoyt's excellent book "Japan's War" it would absolutely shock you just how tumultuous Japan was regarding it's warring classes------the bushido code, political assassinations, army vs. navy.....it covers the period from the early 1850's when Commodore Perry first appears at Japan's shoreline onward and ably demonstrates in it's pages class warfare and those who attempted overthrows feeling that sacrifice was it's own reward.  

So again, when you look at the chasm that exists between the elite and the peasants in North Korea, and just how totally that peasant class continues to suffer so cruelly, I'm surprised someone hasn't tried to take him out.  They should.  I understand the fear factor, but with a cyanide capsule under the tongue in case of capture, might anyone become emboldened?  I often wonder.

It's not easy to kill an absolute dictator.  There were at least six unsuccessful attempts to assassinate Hitler. No wonder he thought he bore a charmed life.
