    Unproven source.

    But while reading through YouTube and the comments by hateful Americans on my Chinese ethnicity, I've seen how it transformed to hatred when people begun thinking about what would happen if China and the US went to war.

    However, just having the thought it would be nearly impossible, at least for our generation.

    Apologize if anything is wrong, Mods, you can lock whenever you feel.

    :rofl:Excellent Satire!

    Its good to know that incisive, dry, Ironic, comedy is not dead in the US just banned from the media networks.


    Its a critique of republican policies transposed to "an approrpriate" foriegn state.

    Very good:rofl:

    Moving to off topic however

    Sadly such comments are quite the norm now if you know where to look e.g. the one about China product safety issue in msnbc. But of course birds of a feather flock together; it does not represent the rest, I hope.

    I'm pretty sure that his statement was entirely ironic given the rolling eye smilie.

    But, really, satire on Americant television is nothing in comparison to the amount of social conservative rhetoric present there.

    Are people here able to tell them apart?:D Ng-N-n-no. At least not the majority. People here don't even know where China is. And I find it sad that people in town seem to think that I am from the 49ers.....

    With the current President of the United States so willing to ignore or bypass the system of checks and balances, when it does not suit him and the Congress so strangely unwilling to challenge him........(odd behavior given that the Constitution of the United States clearly sides with Congress on the major points of contention and is a legal question be a no-brainer as to who would win)

    Well let's just say that America has a better chance of adopting a more Chinese form of governmental organization in the next few years than the other way around. Yet that assumes that current trends continue. There are more than a few like the author of that video, who are most unwilling to keep silent on the issue..... fortunately George "Dubbwa's" approval ratings are "well south" of of what we would call "popular support". My own support for Bush sort of ended the day that I realized that Black Water could be used as a private army when paired with a very recent change in the disaster relief/national emergency statutes.

    Ahhh how quickly things change. In dire times like this, satire may be a most serviceable weapon in which to inform people of events, that are rather hard to swallow when plainly spoken.

    PS..... How can you ban dry incisive wit from the major newsrooms when most anchormen and women are totally incapable of it? I'm sure morticians might better off the cuff remarks than Dan Rather ever did.

    The intresting thing is that the PRC government owns and operates the former US Naval Shipyard at Long Beach CA as a port for COSCO..the Chinese state owned maritime shipping company.

    I remember having a conversation with a former Panamanian elected official about facilities sold to China by the government. "He claims the Chinese bought a facility that was in major need of refit and had not been used in years." Assuming what he said was true, it would seem to indicate that China is willing to buy worldwide access to the sea but doesn't really have cash on hand to buy ownership of world-class shore facilities. Thus China might be buying "fixer-upper's" and then gradually making improvements as revenues allow.

    My question is Popeye.... have you seen the port you're talking about and how rundown or modernized is it? I may have to drive down thier and evaluate the facility for myself if I can find some high ground nearby in which to view it.
