    Why would it matter? If they become a greater military might, why would it make a difference?

    They're going through a golden age of sorts, but their record on human rights and environmental issues is awful. Plus, the stuff they make is junk. Pure junk for the most part, their standards (product and production) have to increase if they're going to sustain.

    I'm all for stepping up to first-world, but that goes across the board. The US AND other first-world countries have to recognize this and hold China to these standards or otherwise alienate them. Holding the Olympics in Beijing wasn't my idea of holding these guys accountable to acceptable standards - it was rewarding them for being an oppressive, disregarding regime.

    Well ,theres the answer then. Their ,"ways", are as ancient and deep as Islams are to their world. China only went capitalist to accomplish desired goals..., the ones you mentioned.
