    I'm not sure you know what "enemy" means.

    Are you familiar with PLA doctrine?
    That was not why he was dismissed. In fact, the Joint Chiefs authorized nuclear strikes on China in the event airstrikes were launched from the country. McArthur was relieved of his command because he kept lambasting the policies of his superiors in the media.

    You haven't noticed how difficult the Chinese make it for American-made products to penetrate their domestic market? Part of their neo-mercantilist economic strategy.

    If you knew what mercantilism was, you'd know it wouldn't mean becoming one of the largest trading nations in the world. So by "neo-mercantilism" I'm guessing you mean the exact opposite of mercantilism.

    It's sad that they can produce goods and ship them halfway around the planet for far cheaper than we can produce those goods. That's global wealth disparity for ya.

    More example that you can't just "give the world a big hug" like Obama and his minions believe, and everything will be okay.

    China isn't interested in friendship. They are having a huge rofl episode over this back in the homeland.

    Obama in their eyes is a pathetic pussy of a man.

    I hope you are holding every President accountable for this from Nixon forward.

    I think the episode was probably just purely funny. They do have the internet in china you know. Is it possible they themselves consider the tune silly at this point in time? Probably. Unfortunately... its... A PROPAGANDA TUNE OE NOE! Unfortunately, thats why it was funny. If the chinese cried tears of patriotism I'd be a little more worried. It seems alot of right wing internet news is running away with this. But these are also the type of sites that have full screen popups that I've won an ipad.

    How pianist Lang Lang stirred up trouble for US and China at a White House State dinner - CSMonitor.com

    ^It seems that right wingers in the states and in China are frothing at the mouth at eachother everyone else probably had a good time.
