    From every cultural study that I have read on the Chinese peoples and government, it appears that these sentiments are true. Thoughts....
    Which is why China has more than 1000 missiles pointed at Taiwan, claims the entire South China Sea and nearly all of the East China Sea as its territorial waters, uses "fishing" boats to encroach on the territorial waters of neighboring states... . yeah, do you really understand this part of the world???

China is more than happy letting the US remain "world police" and have at every step done nothing to counter this view. Even their actions in the realm of entering new markets shows this. For instance, when the US provides aid monies to other nations in exchange for trade, there are always other stipulations. China provides aid with no strings attached, simply allow us access to your market and here is the aid money. China just wants to do business, not step on the sovereignty of those it comes into contact with.
    Do you HONESTLY believe this? It has a territorial dispute with nearly ALL of its neighbors and regularly infringes on the territorial waters of its neighbors...

    Ludahai,

    They don't understand. And the fact they don't understand should tell you something about the condition of the American people.

    Yeah but they don't, which means there's more to it then that. Even if it started out that way decades ago.

    Mistrust often hampers progress.

    And we can talk about US involvement and posturing all day.

    But the fact is, one day, someone has to let bygones be bygones.

    They don't what? They don't because to this point, we have enough to make it costly for them to do it... don't think they don't want to end our way of life... they have more than a thousand missiles pointed at my country and have passed a so-called "anti-succession" (sic) law...

    You don't understand what the Chinese are up to.

    Let bygones be bygones? While they are arming to take over my country, threatening many of its neighbors, sponsoring some of the most disgusting regimes on earth and encroaching on the territorial waters of multiple neighbors?!??!

    Re: Hu says China not seeking arms race or domination

    China isn't seeking an arms race or domination. Not because of any idealistic views, but simply because it isn't a good strategy. Why start a fight when you make your country far more powerful through economic and technological expansion? Political stability is already an issue and adding more territory would make the problem worse. The most important part of avoiding a conflict with China is to make sure that rational people like Hu stay in charge. The real danger is some aggressive idiot who starts a war out of stupidity rather than self interest.

    Not seeking an arms race? Are you kidding? They are already in one, with its neighbors... they are already in an arms race with Taiwan and Japan

    You don't think they want to add more territory? Why do they claim the entirety of Taiwan as well as territory that is part of a dozen neighboring states, not to mention the entire South China and East China seas? Do you really understand what is going on in this part of the world???

    Taiwan might as well be facing the Borg. Taiwan doesn't need weapons. It needs a miracle.
