The previous day, a suspiciously well-written polemic blast at Wang's article was posted on the S&M website; it was entitled "Some of our Intellectual Elites Advocate Selling North Korea Down the River" . It said the United States is China's traditional enemy, North Korea is China's friend, and anyone that suggests otherwise is "even more corrupt that the Qing government of over a century ago".
The second article (from the Washington Post) adds some more detail to the controversy and hints that the offending journal may be closed down for good.
Thanks to Matt for the links. Happy reading!
