Which regime?

Which regime...
  • ...spread lies about its opponents in order to keep a grip on power?
  • ...manipulated and controlled the media so that the people were deceived?
  • ...used torture as a means of gaining important information?
  • ...spied on its own citizens?
  • ...had links with the world of business and used those links for mutual benefit?
  • ...perpetrated human-rights abuses while remaining immensely popular with the nation?
Well... there are actually two answers to this query, and both are right.

Either the Howard government and the Bush Administration or the Bush Adminstration and the Chinese.
