What muscles ? China may talk the talk , but they cant walk the walk . They gotta get out of the crawling stage first.

"The Art of War" by Sun Tzu (a chinese guy), has been read by damn near every military leader on the planet and is still used as a reference book to this day.

There is no greater danger than underestimating your opponent.” ~ Lao Tzu (another chinese guy)

Me thinks you underestimate the warrior philosophies and skillsets of the chinese people... they've had 3000+ years to perfect it down to a science.



The supreme art of war is to subdue the enemy without fighting.” ~ Sun Tzu



Food for thought.

You didnt agree then, it was a very big statue? You keep mentioning war, and although yes it is called 'the god of war statue' the op was more about the creative beauty and awe along with the massive. Artwork at it's finest.

I added the muscle flexing because of what's playing out right now in the media, and found it fitting as i mentioned on the other page, as to it's name.

Have you ? I have. Also, Rommel's books on armored warfare are a lot more popular in military circles.

Wow that looks fabulous. It reminds me of the Vasco de Gama discoveries statue on the shore in Lisbon, Portugal, which is about 52m high.

I haven't read the whole thread so sorry if this has already been touched on BUT. Guan Yu was a general early in Chinese history. For some now he is revered as a diety but in no way is he a "God Of War" ina reply to: awareness10

Thank you for that. There isn't much I know about Chinese generals bar the more well known Sun Tzu.

Yes, Thankyou. That was the title of the article so.. I believe he was called 'The God of War' sometime later but not officially.

It's cool and all but really? "Glued strips of bronze"? How long is that thing going to last?

My money would be on Lady Liberty in a fight. Isn't she welded?

And it doesn't say if you can walk up inside it either?
