    Silly me. Indeed after finding this 'new information' that came to light - namely the egg streaming down his face - he finally decided to act.

    As a routine user of the services provided by the Egg Marketing Board, I request that you retract your scurrilous slander on eggs.
    I was told that the best things for me were to eat healthy foods, walk up hills, stop smoking cigars, and cut out drinking Scotch.
    With my record, I don't deserve the best. What's second best?

    China taking lead to ground Boeing 737 MAX 8 signals challenge to US authority in worldwide civil aviation

    When China on Monday became the first country to order all Boeing 737 MAX 8 planes grounded in the aftermath of the Ethiopian Airlines crash the previous day, its aviation regulator sent an unmistakable signal: the US Federal Aviation Administration is no longer the only authority in civil aviation worldwide.

    After China ordered a dozen carriers to ground their 96 planes – about a quarter of all 737 MAX aircraft in operation globally – authorities in Ethiopia, Indonesia, Mongolia, Morocco and Singapore quickly followed suit, along with carriers in Latin America and South Korea.

    Despite the FAA issuing a statement backing the Boeing jet’s airworthiness, the European Union grounded the model on Tuesday, as did at least 10 other countries, with authorities saying the aircraft would not be allowed to fly to or from their countries pending the investigation.

    China’s move, unprecedented for a government that once took cues from the FAA, was motivated by what Chinese officials and pilots said was months of equivocation from US officials and Boeing in response to safety inquiries from China after a 737 MAX 8 flight crashed in Indonesia in October.

    COMMENT:-

    An interesting take on the matter, eh wot?

    I mean, who do those Chinese think they are to doubt the word of the President of the United States of America, the US government, and Boeing (not necessarily in that order)?
    China saw an opening to damage an american compsny snd took it. Its not really a big mystery what they are doing.

    Exactly and that is why you support Mr. Trump in his staunch refusal to knuckle under to those so-called "reports" of so-called "aircraft crashes" supposedly resulting from some so-called "defect" in the aircraft's manufacture.

    Oh the irony, China being accused of stealing a patented USA mode of operation.

    It's easy for authoritarian states to be the first to ban something.

    Nothing really new or special.

    Yes I know, that that is why such repressive dictatorships as the EU, Canada, and the UK banned the aircraft before the US did.

    What surprises me is your rudeness when I gave you no reason to be so. I can only assume that you don't know what your talking about either and rather than admit that you chose to use that bit of condescending snark to obfuscate your own ignorance.

    A normal person would of explained their point when asked for clarification if they actually had a coherent point to make.
