Chinese singer uses the sweet sound of music to battle US missile system (VIDEO)
A Chinese singer-songwriter has taken aim at the US over the deployment of the THAAD missile defense system in South Korea using the best weapon he has — his voice.

Xie Tianming said that he felt compelled to write the powerful politically charged ballad after seeing the news on television. Realizing the potential danger posed to his homeland from the US made Terminal High Altitude Area Defence (THAAD), he wanted to make a difference.

"I want to get people's sympathy after all," stated Xie Tianming. "There is a great amount of support for China, but now I want to stop the deployment of THAAD by the US.”

“This is patriotic behavior - as a musician, I am willing to express my patriotic feeling through my voice," the singer added.

Anger has boiled over in China following the deployment of THAAD in South Korea. The Chinese have begun boycotting Japanese-Korean-owned shopping centers, Lotte, after the company reportedly agreed to a government requisition of land so the missile system could be deployed.
