Follow us on TWITTER: Like us on FACEBOOK: With Bo Xilai' and Wang Lijun' removal, it seems Chinese Communist Party' (CCP) political drama had just begun. Overseas media reported of Zhou Yongkang's weeping self-criticism to Hu Jintao last week. However, Zhou is deemed to be the next big target after Bo and Wang, before the CCP's 18th congress in October. disclosed that last week Zhou Yongkang made a weeping self-criticism to Hu Jintao at a Politburo meeting. However, Zhou still fiercely protects Bo Xilai and shields Wang Lijun. Insiders told Boxun that Zhou had met with Bo five times in Beijing, Chongqing and Chengdu. Both plotted Bo's promotion to Head of Political and Legal Affairs Committee (PLAC) and Xi Jinping's stepping down within two years after Bo's new reign. The ploy included media's defaming and even arresting Xi Jinping with security forces when necessary. Zhou had assisted Bo and Wang in purchasing the most advanced tapping devices from Germany, and wire-tapped the nine members of Politburo's Standing Committee. Zhou also promised Bo to serve as the PLAC Secretary, and Wang to be Public Security' Minister within two years. Zhang Tianliang (Professor at George Mason University): "Bill Gertz disclosed that Bo and Zhou had made a specific plan to topple down Xi Jinping. All indications show that the ploy must be true. Otherwise, there's no need for Zhou to desperately protect Bo. But if the ploy is true, Zhou Yongkang's position must be removed." Zhang Tianliang thinks the news is quite authentic. First, Hu and Wen started to probe Wang Lijun, then traced Bo up to Zhou Yongkang, Zhang deduces. Political critic Wu Fan notes that many evidences have proved the treason of Bo and Zhou. Like their military exercises, dispatching armored vehicles around the U.S. Consulate, wire-tapping CCP's top leaders, buying weapons and so on. Wu Fan: "The simultaneous actions could cause rebound. So firstly they caught Bo Xilai, then they watch their time. They are waiting for more truth revealed and various reactions about dealing with Bo Xilai. This includes reactions of international community, China, inside the CCP and of public opinion. After collecting all this information, they will bide their time to take down Zhou Yongkang." Wu Fan predicts that Zhou Yongkang may be taken down before this July or August. Boxun also revealed that Zhou supported Bo and Wang to "control the PLAC" in order to avoid being "brought to trial." The PLAC was set up in 1980 by the CCP. In 1999 it was merged with Office 610, a structure specially set up by Jiang Zemin for the persecution of Falun Gong. Since then, the PLAC is unprecedentedly empowered with above-law authority. The PLAC officials at all levels have the power to wantonly persecute Falun Gong practitioners. This includes kidnapping, house searching, confiscation of possessions, and many others. According to evidences, they even went to the extend of harvesting organs from live Falun Gong practitioners. Incomplete data shows, 3,518 Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured to death; over 10,000 sentenced to jail; over 100,000 sent to re-education through labor' camps, and much more Falun Gong practitioners are just missing. Commentator Ren Baiming said that the Falun Gong issue is at the core of China's politics. The semi-militarization and moral decay in today's China are all linked to Jiang Zemin's persecution of Falun Gong. The "above-law authority" of CCP had fostered the creation of monsters like PLAC and the system of Office 610. PLAC's control of the armed force, which can contend with the army troops, is another trouble for Hu & Wen, says Ren. Ren Baiming: "Stopping the persecution of Falun Gong is the will of Heaven, nobody is able to resist it. So Hu and Wen should conform to Heaven's will; that will inevitably bring a good future and blessings to them." In recent years, PLAC has expanded its Falun Gong "persecution mode" to other groups in the society. Like ethnic minorities, Christian' Family Church, petitioners, human rights activists and lawyers, dissidents, etc.. 《神韵》2011世界巡演新亮点
