Hi,subz and zappafan1:
Thanks for your patience reading my essay and commenting on it,but not just
taunting without trying to comprehend what I said.Maybe we can not totally agreee
each other,but the precondition of this discussion is that we are equal ,haveing
right to express and preserve own opinion,no matter wherever come from,or have
different opinions.
In fact I am quite suprised zappanfan1 regard Communitist as the tyrant and evilness.
Maybe many of you have the same points,while the people of China do not. You say you can
not believe the people of China chose to become Communist.I have to answer you that,the
people of China did choose the Communist Party in 1940s,otherwise there is no reasonale
arguement which can explain that why the Kuomintang party,the ministerial party at that
time was defeated during the civil war in China during 1945 to 1949,and retreated to Taiwan,
even the army of Kuomingtang had not also much moreq uantities but also so much more advanced
weapons than the Cummunist Party,and was supported by the USA .(Do not tell me just no reason,
or because the Communist is evil
)And now,still,most people of the China believe the Party.
And the following I want to express my different view on the Communist.
My mother tongue and major is not English,I do not know what emotion of the west people
when they mention the word "Communist",even only the origin meaning of "Communist",taring
to 1848 when Karl Marx "invented" it.
I doubted when the Capitalism came forth,what the kings and noble thought about it?Maybe
most of the persons at that time can not agreed to the Capitalism either.We also can see the
horror in the French Revolution.I am not tried to prove that the Communist is better than
the Capital,or so on.I just expressed that,most chinese people do not regard the Communist
as evil and unhuman just as you ,and you can not say:"becaouse I think it is evil,so it in
fact is evil".Am i right?I think there may be some different meaning between you said "Communist
" and I .
In my private opinions,maybe the Chinese now choose the Communist,some sense following the
tradition of centralization.The world Communist have much communicate with centralization in
chinese people's opinions.It not means everthing is determined by the government,or the tyrant,
while you can see someone is often criticizing the system without being arrested only because
criticize.It also not means everthing is owned by the goverment,while I and my family have own
lawful properties,being protected by the law.And,the life did have becoming much better,says my
grandfather,borned in 1930s.

From Zappafan1: Hello again, Corner: I, too, hope you can again make contact with this forum. I do not mean to offend you or the Chinese people. The people there might have decided to be under the rule of government, but perhaps because not that many had the ability to learn much about the "Western" countries and the freedom and liberties we have. Is America perfect, no, as I wrote earlier; it is still a work in progress. I dislike when anyone says America is a Democracy.... we are not. Communism/Socialism/Marxism cannot exist without a "democracy" in place. The Liberal/Democraticic people here want to change America to be more like the rest of the world, instead of bringing the other countries "up" to our level of Freedom and personal Liberty. Socialism/Marxism/Communism has failed every time it has been tried. The mathmatics alone prove it cannot succeed. I wish all the best for you and your people, but "Big Government" cannot succeed. History has shown this time after time.. Our economy is now being strained very much, but it is not because of the war; it is the Government give-aways that are hurting us more than anything. Welfare; Social Security and all the other Socialaist/Marxist programs are taking us further and further from the ideals this country was founded on. My good wishes to you and your family. Thank you for taking the time to respond, and for reading my post.

hi, everyone, I m from China and just want to say my opinions.

I m one of the " new generation" of china, born after Mao's death, no idea of the " culture revolution", no communist, speaking german and english while working,.

actually, like many other young people, I adopted many "western values", the whole china is lerning many things from western, not only the US today, also the achievements from the history of europa , I mean the politic system and the "human right" , which was ignored in the chinese history, think of the power that the emporer had. it is good that we have europa to learn from, after most chinese people accepted the mornachy and just want to get a better position within the system, not trying to make even smallest change.

however, I do believe that most chinese people will support the war, if it is because of the island (and if it is the only choice), it is important to all of us. some may keep away or even migrate, but I don't think people will blame the communist party, if they really choose a war, there are many things to complain about, but talking about Taiwan, it doesn't matter who is making decision.

I don't know wether it is easy for you to comprehend, chinese are, you could say, sensitive to such questions, maybe like a person who was always teased in the childhood, may perform differently. so unification is the head word there, most important.

I don't like war, peace is precious, but it is not only the communist who would trigger a war.

China is too busy turning itself into a rich industrial nation to want to bother about war right now, the real worry is Iran, they are fighting a holy war and are prepared to sacrifice everything for their aims, China on the other hand is not

Although i slightly agree with the last post on the fact that China is super industrializing right now. I can see how it would benifit them with Taiwan in their left pocket. I don't think that the Chinese will do anything until the U.S. does something or something or someone does something to it. Based on the fact that they know that things are just going to get worse for and the U.S. isn't going to stop sticking its nose into the whole worlds business. I do agree that Iran is the U.S. number one problem, the only thing i can't decide is that if Iran is going to be a scapegoat or the source. I never really thought the cold war ended. The U.S. never siezed to feed upon its greed for more power. And i believe that the ideals and motives that lie in the major super heated world politics are still underlying the principles of the cold war. The real question is when is the inevitable going to happen?

We buy products from China, Japan and Taiwan because the taxes on corporations here are way overboard, hence outsourcing and insourcing. Also, our educational system is in the crapper, and those countries will graduate 20 times the number of engineers as we will, this year alone.

With all due respect, that's one of the least thought through comments I've ever heard. Is it really worth the possible annihilation of the human species to get even with the "arrogance" of the Chinese? Is it even worth 1 life for that? What level of arrogance is demonstrated by someone willing to wipe out another civilization over the words of their self appointed leaders, and who thinks they could do so without recourse?

Nuclear war with China would be the end of mankind as we know it, not simply more expensive DVDs.

There are 40 million Party Members out of 1.3 billion population(official numbers);3% of all Chinese are Communists.The other 97% are merely "accepting the Party's leadership" as they say.
As a response to the statements made by the former Minister of Defense,Chi Hainoi(?) ,5.6 million Party members have resigned.why?Because it is stupid to announce your enemy about your attack plans ,in a little book called "the Nine Comentaries" .
The Chinese believe in harmony between men and between man and nature ,so they accept the leadership of the "sages" as long as they are not stupid and/or weak.So China accepts for now the leadership of USA in the world.
On the other hand,if we allow ourselves to look weak and stupid in their eyes,we are inviting their catastrophic attack.China occupies an area larger than Europe ,with hundreds of different peoples and languages and it was united in 200 BC by the king from the Qin dinasty(hence,the name) by force:he beheaded every enemy soldier that was captured in war.
Pres Bush called an axis of evil in 2002 and very transparently indicated that Iraq,north Korea and Iran will be attacked in a few years.Then vicepres Cheney said in an interview that US will attack Iraq.That was one year prior to war.the US forces failed to hold Afghanistan
nly Kabul is safe in that country.Iraq cannot be pacified and everyone is talking about retreat.On the other hand,China has been growing both economically and military from the past 3-4 decades.They feel that they have the right to reunite with Taiwan and that they must have a louder voice in the world.
Now that's all past,because the attack plans have already been made.Alliances have been forged with Russia,India,Iran.WE have to fight this war and win it.

This thread is the best ever, you can pick out all the scared little Americans one by one.

"That guy is staring at us lets bomb him!"

China is not the problem, nor Iran, Iraq, Korea, or whatever. The US is pushing for world war 3. Nobody else.

It is so frightning to see that you still think your army is doing a good thing out there.

Your looking down on a "communist" China but you fail to see you're living in a fascist America. As long as your tv says you're not you'll be alright I guess?

Shroomery, not every American invites this conflict. I would recommend you not put us all in the same play-pen. Its pretty common knowledge that the Gov't is failing us and doesnt speak for all of us. Please keep these comments to yourself.

We arent here to bash nationalities are we? I am sure I could find plenty of faults with where you hang your hat. There are a lot of reasons to remain proud of being an American, no matter how screwed up a lot of things have gotten. I would still rather live here. Believe it or not, some of us Yanks are still trying to institute change in our system; One of the few places where this can be done.

"Nuclear winter" theory, as much as I was a fan of the late Carl Sagan, has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese. Fallout is bad, but it's deadliest effects don't last very long - you'll notice Hiroshima is a thriving city right now, my car was built there, and it doesn't glow or anything


You think a nuke is just a big bomb dont you.

Cernobal rusian incident, it has passed over 20 years nothing grows there
no one lives in proximity to the area, it has passed a while and still nothing.
How does a nuke act.
1 Once it's detonated first impact will desintegrate everithing on a large radius.
2 Radiation, gamma radiation is the most penetrating radiation, this type of radiation will stay along hundred of years if a large pay load of nukes are detonated, gamma radiation will penetrate led hard metals, it will be in the food you eat in the water you drink.
3 Radiation storms, of course after the impact you will have rain, storms with radiation clouds, think how it would be if it would be raining acid on you but much worse in intensity, winds containg the radiation, the way the wind blows depends on who dies.
4 Here comes the winter, if there is something bad it's the nuclear winter.
If anithing hapens to survive from over 20000 nukes or more from all over the world, the nuclear winter will spear us all of sufering, not only if we make it in the winter we would be sick already with all kind of defects, the winter would level us all, strong winds snow mixed with radiation will have you glow like a cristmass tree, the wind blowing would cary radiation from place to place you would perish just by inhailng air.



And yes, the Chinese do think they are better equipped than us to survive a nuclear conflict - with good reason, they have an active civil defense program, with lots of fallout shelters in every major population center. We are so enamored with a false sense of our own omnipotence & invulnerability, we don't even bother. Pride goeth before the fall...

They cant survive a nuclear conflict of thoulsands of nukes no one can and no one wins.
Nukes where they hit you will think a asteroid struk there, it levels everything, the wave is just too strong .
Second the earth would not be hospitable for man for at least 500 years.
Gamma radiation go's hard away, you cant wash it with anithing.
Hirosima 1 bomb and they still got above high radiation levels today, and that was 1 lame bomb comared to whats now a nuclear bomb.

Just want to correct some minor mistakes:
1.By the end of 2005, there are 70 million CPP members in China, around 6% of the population. I never heard any CCP member in China mainland resigned. Of course maybe some oversea CCP members did that, but who cares about them?

2. If U.S gov and U.S people really believe what FLG or Nine Comentaries told them are true, then I guess U.S will have an absolute wrong strategy for China.

Btw, China is not as red as most western people think . It is already 50% comunism and 50% capitalism.

Never!

We will and must fight for freedom everywhere. We do not negotiate freedom.

Let them launch a nuke, and let's see what happens!

China could take us in conventional war, but has absolutely zero chance in a nuclear exchange.

But, if the conflict over taiwan happens, then I will move the heck out of this big city...

Hopefully China realizes the consequences and let's that little rock go...

Who is threatening who here?????????? I read the article, China intents to invade Taiwan, which was created because communists put the run on the old imperial class. Now China decides they want Taiwan even though it is not bothering them. Taiwan is an ally of the US. China is the bully on the block and constantly making threats now like North Korea (China's communist client state hand puppet Lil' Kim...), was making threats a few years ago.

While we are at it, what happened to Lil' Kim btw, did he get paid off or something? Haven't heard from him in awhile?

Well apparantly everyone in this thread is in the same playpen. Everyone acts like they're being attacked!? Hello? Reality check? You should be happy the entire world didn't turn on you yet.

Truth is, nobody knows who's ruling that country so to me "Americans" will do just fine.

Go protest if you don't like it. But don't try to spin it as if I am generalizing. I'm not gonna point out exactly who I mean just so I don't step on any toes.

Taiwan is still a part of China. Some proofs:
1.On Taiwanese's passport, it is still printed as "Republic of China"(中华民国) . In China mainland the passport shows "People's republic of China"(中华人民共和国)
Even you don't know how to read chinese, you can tell that the characters of PRC inclues the ROC.

2. Taiwan just abandomed their re-unificaion(or counterattack?) plan last week which means Taiwan wanted to get China mainland back during the last 50 years. So we can say China mainland and Taiwan are still in the civil war status because both PRC(CCP)/ROC never declared or sign anything to stop the civil war.

"Invade" always refers to one country attacking another one.
No country including U.S has the right to interfere other country's interior affair.

Shroom, I would also like to point out that those same idiots are the ones with terribly grammer, sentence structure, and spelling. They are probably 17 year old kids that have nothing better to do during their school day but post anonymously on a message board pretending to be political scientists.

Bash us all if you want, but I will take the higher road. I am pretty sure the board was started with better ideas in mind.

I like China. I have a couple Chinease friends and they are great people. They are given a bad rap by their gov't. You can see why a liberal yank would relate to that, huh?

And where are you living at present? I am not gonna roast you...I dont really care. I am just curious just how many corners of this planet your anti-american sentiments have spread.

Could be, but I'm afraid the majority are "adults" who are so dumbed down that we get the impression they never completed elementary school.

And let me repeat again, I don't have a problem with american citizens. The truth is a MINORITY hijacked that country. That doesn't mean I'm gonna stop from calling this an American problem, cause it is.

I'm from Belgium btw.
