As a American I think that would be great if our countries became strong allies some day. I know People in China just want whats best for their people just like every other country. Our two countries already have very strong economic ties. If anything that a good starting point to a good relationship. Its not good business to go to war with such a major trading partner.

Personally I like asian culture and history a great deal both Japanese and Chinese. The art covering everything from painting to sword making stands out as a favorite of mine. Our cultures may be very different but thats a good thing in my opinion as we can learn new things from each other.

China is going to become a Super power and be a driving force in the world and I think we have to learn to work together for the whole of mankind. We dont need another cold war like we had with Russia from that we gain nothing and stand to lose so much. If The US and China ever went to war it would be a bad day for people every where on the planet no matter what country you lived in.

If two major powers like the US and China work together would could accomplish some amazing things in the world.

If China and Usa have chance to make friend...



I am from USA and am living in Chengdu, Sichuan. I have been here for 3 years.

I understand much of the Chinese mentality about the nations relationship with the USA but I ask you, as a Chinese Expatriot...why don't you think they are friends already?

Do you think they are not working together already and that the propaganda in media reports is to mislead us away from their covert cooperation?

Or am I wrong?

I'm sure the door for friendship will always be open given our democratic nature but it more than reasonable to remain vigilant. We are on a path to conflict or co-operation - the US has shown its hand.

PS - why exclude the Indians from this post - is your kind nature selective or just artificial in the first place?

Indeed...
Why keep the Indians out?..
Lets just all be friends aye??


Or does this guy expect indians on ATS to go...

"nooooooooooooo ..never!!!! china and the US can never be friends!!..
That spoils India's plans for world domination!!!"




EDIT: I think this guy got ticked off by that "cheap chinese copies" thread which was (he seems to have noted) started by an Indian..

Well Mr. Paranoid if you'd read that thread carefully, then you'd see that the majority of the China bashing that took place there was originating from US posters..
I infact myself ( being indian) posted saying that and i quote:


"this thread is not in good taste for this forum"..


and why bash the Soviet Union at the same time?..
Are you implying that the soviets are worthy of american ire??
A student you may be, but seriously, how old are you peacworld?

A rather loaded thread to mark your entry into ATS I must say!!
Nonetheless I welcome you and wish you all the best..
(and along with that I wish you some broadening of perspective)
Sorry to have posted on your exclusively non-indian thread..


But seriously friendship between countries in the true sense of the word is a utopian concept..

"Friends and enemies are never permanent, only national interests are"

Any country using that as a motto cannot falter..

For why China and America isn't great buddies yet is because of the American foreign policy and its attitude toward the world especially in the area of Taiwan.

Taiwan is a part of China, no doubt about that but because of the civil war that basically did not end, nationalists still exists and occupies Taiwan. America signed an act with Taiwan for weapons and possible defence if PLA decides to take over the island. China hated America for that, still do. But if the Taiwan issue was to disappear, I can't see much reason how China and America shouldn't be friends like in the 80's.

Another thing is America's attitude toward foreign countries. Starting a new war every two, three years and attacking countries that had basically no way to strikeback (bullying, internationally by my opinion). With actions like that, every country, even America most valuable allies must keep one eye opened at all times.

As an American, I think that America and China are trading and importing a lot of stuff form each other, and I don't think that eth of them want to ruin that. However I think if China attacks Taiwan then the U.S. will have to back up its words or it will come out looking like a duck. However if the Taiwan situation is resolved then I don't see why we couldn't get along.

The U.S would want to be friends with China if...


* China felt Taiwan alone

* China improved it's human rights

* China didn't try and steal our weapons technology (see bipartisan Congressional Cox report from the 1990's)


These are the three main things.

i insist on that if you want to discuss china you should do a lot working at research chinese
history,then,you will found what we'll do and what is we want.taiwan is apart of china,you known
that?and why we should felt taiwan alone?that's just like some country told USA "you should let
NEW YORK alone"!that's funny.and my puzzle is that why we can't solve taiwan problem by unpeaceful
resort,taiwan is belong to china,but america could warring in Iraq?if the war in iraq's purpose is
protect the american's safe,but what is the reason you warring in taiwan?protect the people in taiwan?
they are chinese too.the taiwan problem is chinese problem,it's our problem,not your,you didn't have the
right and qualification in the question.be american mybe you'll never known what's attitude every chinese
have on the integrity of territory.be a commen chinese,i can tell you,if one day my county need me and
even my life,i'll never scruple.and how many american want pay their life on another county's problem,
the whole thing is off the mark of american.we pay whatever we have.for thousands years,we have the same
attitude in these problem.please trust me.
as for the human rights,i want to ask you if you have been to china?you real known the situation we live
in.i can tell you,we have enough human rights,and every year the human rights is improving.i didn't want to
say more in these problem,we choose the diffent way,is complex to say.the fundamentality problem in china is
economic problem,when the economic developed the other problems are solved too.i think america goverment known
this,but why they adopt the policy keep within limits china?i doubt the purpose of america goverment,they really
want to inprove the human rights in china.
about steal you weapons technology,is hard to say,no one have the certitude attestation."li wen he"you known,who
working in a nucleus laboratory,the thing what has happend in him proved that some american fake in "china steal
usa's weapons technology" for some propose,that's only my opinion.you needn'd so angry in this problem,anycountry

I am a Chinese student study in UK. Sorry to waste your time if you have seen this post since I have posted it on one other thread.

Please don't look our govement like north korean, we are totally different... If we are still follow the political and economic policies of the USSR, we won't get any better in any of our situations, we either will end up like USSR with the poor economic or even worse than north korean. You should know it's not easy to solve the food problem for a county of over 1 billion population with very limited plantable land with the weston pressure after half century of civil war and foreign invasive war. Russian didn't help us, korean didn't help. We can only rely on ourself and we solevd it much better.

Yes, we are socialism. But wht's whrong with socialism, we are not some kind of extremism socialism and deny every thing of capitalism. But we paid a lot of attentions to learn from capitalism.I have to mention the intention of socialism is A social system in which the means of producing and distributing goods are owned collectively and political power is exercised by the whole community. Can you say it's a bad a intention. but from the collapse of many socialism countries, we know we need our own kind of socialism system. we call it the socialism with Chinese characteristic which comband the advantages of socialism and the advantages of capitalism.

You may always think all the chinese people have been brainwashed. Their govement is autocratic. They have no freedom to speech, ........ There are over 2 millions of chinese oversea students all over the world. Most of them speak English read the weston media news. If the govement is autocratic like you may think. Then the govement should be very worried about their autocratic regime. Better don't let students go aborad to know what the real weston world democracy is. since govement know they are different in some way but there is no much differnces and they getting similar in nowadays, So they are not worrying too much....

I have been UK for 7 years since my A levels. I am going back next year after my Master degree. Because the situation there is not like what you may think. I see more development opportunities there than UK. human rights is not actually like weston always said. we do have free speech, we can protest as long as you don't go to violence, we can taunt our govener anywhere..If you go to the Chinese formal govement newgent XINHUA news forum website, you will see lots of the criticized debate about current govenment policies and goveners all over the country, which also is the forum what our prime minister often visit to see the real voice from people......

Someone may criticise about Falun gong, Go to some most popular chinese oversea or indigenous student websiite forum....See How people say about Falun gong, 99.9999999% chinese students whereever they are, they know Falun gong is just kind of swindler, they aim to the uneducated people in china. there have been so many extremist suicide cos believe they can go to paradise.

And a real Example, my uncle had encephalomyelitis five years ago, but his situation was not that bad by taking medical treatment at that time. but he insist not to take any treatment after he start to Falun gong as what Falun gong told people not to take any medical treatment and Falun will cure any sickness if you believe it. He died after 1 year he pratice the idot Falun and stop his medical treatment... I am really shame and sick to see the Fanlun people protest anywhere in UK.

Every country got their own problems, Especially, for a big country with 1.3 billion populations have 56 different minority groups. So the democracy has to be gradually and very carefully in a big nation, not at once. We don't want to be second russia( no offensive to russian, I mean govement policies). We will have fully democracy it's just factor of time cos what i can see is democracy is getting better and better everyday and the situation now it's not bad at all.........We don't want fully copy of american democracy because it just won't suit us fully cos we have different culture and ideology.


We don't hate american. Our relations between US are getting better and better. We hope to be friend not enemy but please don't create your enemy by yourself. Our culture determined we were and wil never a aggressive nation even in our age of richest and strongest nation in the world(Ming dynasty and Tang dynasty)

Please open your mind my friends to understand and respect the differences of nation's culture, history, religion and beliefs.

thanks you reply!for my poor english i can't expression me integrity,and i am very agree with you,i think every chinese have the same opinion with you,at least 99.99999%.china and america have different culture,we need
more communion to understand each other,and you'll find we have so much
common ground in extensive domain.and i believe that chinese know more
america than american know our.

China and the US are already friends, though they fight over certain issues and the US is wary of growing chinese power because they could knock them off their perch. Taiwan will be the big sticking issue, because if the US backs down that'll be the end of their time as the worlds bully. Also American pride is an issue, they dont want to appear weak.

peacwold, it's not right to group all people in a particular way. Most Indians i know are very nice.

If you wanted to speak to Americans then just say that you want to speak to Americans.

Oh yeah, also put some empty lines "\n" between your paragraphs, makes them easier to read.

Finally, it's nice to hear from someone in Beijing.

P.S I'am an Australian with a Chinese background.

The CCP today is very different from the old school Stalin communism. They have changed a LOT since first establishment in 1949. The biggest change is during the reforms of '80 - '88. They have now become more democratic, more socialist (away from communist), and less extreme than they were before. All I have to say about the CCP is that it should continue in the direction it was heading since the reforms. The cause of the 1989 Tian An Meng massacre was because the CCP slowed down the reform and people don't like that. Ever since then the CCP has learned a big lesson about human rights because many foreign countries stopped helping, supporting, having good relations with them. Remember, the CCP is a relatively young government, only in power for ~50 years. It started off as a huge band of mostly peasants who knew nothing about politics, so to see it advance so much since then, it's actually not bad.

The reason the CCP was very extreme in the 50s was because the country before that was a COMPLETE MESS. Parts were conquered by foreign powers, there was mass civil disorder, and there was a civil war. China was once a world's leading kingdom in the Feudal eras, so to see it all messed up since the latter Qing dynasty (the last dynasty before monarchy government is overthrown) was very sad for the Chinese people. The majority then decided to stand up for the ruined country and regroup. Well that was what the CCP was about.

Today, the country was close to reunited (except GMD which fought the CCP but lost then fled to Taiwan). In addition, China recovered dramatically and is even catching up with the West. As long as they keep it up, they will do very nicely in the future.

No, i don't really see a showdown.

Frankly, China couldn't care less if the U.S remained the lone superpower in the World. China will never seek the number 1 or 2 position in the World, it is not in China's nature, that is why China has survived all these years.

The only thing that could trigger conflict is Taiwan, and it will be a limited conflict at worst.
