    I wouldn't worry too much. The Chinese don't want to be our cruel overlords, but just their bureaucrats.
    You just recited the plot of "The Event" lol.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    You have a nation that practices pure communism within its borders and the purest of capitalism outside its borders. It's like General Electric with an employee base of 10-year-olds with no rights working for free.

    They're not ready yet, but they have an unlimited supply of free labor, and everybody owes them money, which can be converted into information and know-how (Clinton already helped them out considerably).

    This should concern you greatly down the road.

    I don't know where you've been learning your history/political science or if you actually read the news, but nothing could be further from the truth.

    The internet is buzzing with theories about what their purpose is, with suggestions ranging from giant QR readers to practise targets for military satellites.

    To add to the intrigue, they are located on the borders of Gansu province and Xinjiang in northwestern China - an area that the superpower uses to build military, space and nuclear equipment.[/QUOTE]




    Sooner or later, the world is headed for a very dark place, and China will probably be the one to start it.

    Nah. Elvis Presley will start it.

    I don't know about that, because I was going to suggest that it is a super-secret death ray they have in space that is being use to draw those lines on the ground.
