So they just didn't put up the trailer in the beginning saying not all fireworks shown would be live? I would expect CGI in the movies not at a "live" event. Isn't that why they call it "live"?
I know Austrailian and american business men here in the business service industry, they have told me face to face they would rather deal with anyone rather than Chinese business men who rarely keep their word. And until you have stood in my shoes and seen over here first hand what the Chinese can do to people who live hand to mouth you have no right to call me a bigot.
You are either a hopeless bigot and not knowledgeable about Indonesia's history with Chinese. The problem in Indonesia is rampant corruption by the government officials. Were you in Jarkarta, Indonesia during May to July of 1998? Do you know what happen during that time? This is recent history.
Many Chinese Indonesian citizens were abused, tortured and killed. Their houses and stores were looted and burnt.
Hundreds of Chinese Indonesian girls and women (aged from 10 to 55) were sexually harassed and gang raped brutally. Some victims were even raped in front of their family members or in front of inhuman cheering crowd.
Some of them were thrown into the fire and burnt to death after being raped.
Yet, not many actions seem to have been taken to investigate all this or to help the victims. And not very many people seem to know or care about what happened.
I had 3 Chinese Indonesian sisters as neighbors a few years ago, their parents sent them to the States. Most of the Chinese in Indonesia are Christians and the Churches here were lobbying the Congress and Clinton administration to do something. U.S. navy was willing to work with the China if things gets worst real fast. The reason this was not the first time it happen.
The first massacre that I know of is in 1965-1966 - Indonesia
500,000 killed in anti-communist violence, many were
local Chinese suspected of communist activities, others
were those who joined the PKI (Parti Kommunis Indonesia)
ignorant of the ideology but attracted by it's stance for
defending worker rights, while many others were innocent
victims caught in the frenzied bloodletting of racial
jealousy and animosity.
