SMH - great that the boys bought the stuff, but this wasn't charity for China, yet they're flying their flag on the (Irish) plane like they actually did something good. Evil bastards.

The powers that be in China are evil bastards.

Chinese people, on the other hand, are people. Some really terrific folks, some average, some bastards. I've known some really great people from China. Probably U2 do as well. My feelings for the CCP don't extend to China as a whole.

South Korea sourced the gear, President Moon did so at Bono's request. Nice of the CCP to remind Ireland of that.
The Edge: “[Eno] would love to see us making albums a bit more like [Zooropa]. Where we go, ‘You know what? We’re not going to second-guess any of this. Let’s just go for it.’”

U2 Fans: We'd all love to see that, Edge.
