CHINA: YOU'LL PAY US BACK WITH POLICY CHANGES
China expects the U.S. to make significant concessions on sensitive military, trade and diplomatic issues as payback for last weekend's NATO bombing of China's embassy in Belgrade, the FINANCIAL TIMES is reporting on Wednesday.
China is seeking conciliatory measures from the U.S., including dismissing allegations that a Chinese spy passed U.S. nuclear secrets to China.
FT reporters James Harding and Steven Fidler quote a senior foreign policy advisor to Chinese President Jiang Zemin: "It is now up to the U.S... to take the initiative to get the relationship back to normal."
The paper outlines the said conditions.
INVESTIGATORS SUSPECT CHINA MOVED TENS OF MILLIONS OF DOLLARS THROUGH U.S. BANK TO PAY FOR SPYING OPERATIONS
Just as... the NY TIMES breaks with a fresh Page One of its own on Wednesday: Tens of millions of dollars have flowed from China into a small American bank -- and U.S. investigators suspect that it to pay for spying operations!
It is almost impossible to believe we are at this junction in our history.

Wait until the nukes start falling.
