    This is quite scary, if this ends up being a full scale war on the Korean Peninsula the U.S. will most likely be dragged into a second Korean War, but this time instead of Communist Russia backing the North it will be the Chinese that practically own us and since we already are in two wars I dont think we would be able to win this and China could see this as a way to take us down for good economically and possibly through force given the chance and depending on if this escalates to full scale war. This could in the long run and if it escalates be the beginning of the end of America......just my two cents.

    It deals generally with the ownership of private property. Communism tends to be against it, while Facism tends to rather protect it.

    China has gone from being a country with almost no private ownership of property to a huge amount of private property, the number of billionaries, millionaries and overall wealth of many Chinese is growing at a fast rate. The number of privately owned homes has increased dramatically, along with privately owned business small and large. It still is a dictatorship of course and one that bends both the private sector and still considerable public sector to do the states wish`s


    It truely resembles the system of Chile under Pinochet then any communist country

    Last time, it was the Chinese who attacked us as we approached their border, not the Russians. The Koreans were a buffer for both sides, and that buffer balance was upset by the DPRK when they attacked South Korea. Todays scenario is completely different. China will not, for at least a decade, confront the U.S. openly, because then we don't owe them any money, and we get a chance to destroy their factories, and kill their people. It is against their interests to support the DPRK militarily.

    You're sorta right. While Communism is about government ownership of all property, Facism allows the ownership of property, but the government dictates what you do with that property. Ultimately, there isn't mucha difference. Personally, I prefer full-blown, unbridled capitalism and entrepreneurship.

    I seem to remember a certain U.S. general saying the exact same thing back in 1950.
