As you know, Yeltsin is currently in China, a trip he undertook against the public advice of his doctors..... This trip is part of the development of what Russia and China call a strategic relationship.
* There is clearly a congruence of views between the two countries on a number of issues – including resistance to outside interference on what the two countries call strictly internal affairs, which for Russia means its brutal campaign in Chechnya and for China its repression of the Falun Gong.
* We expect a glowing report on the development of the relationship.
* But we do not see the emergence of a full blown alliance with coordinated positions and actions on all issues.

can't say for sure that they didn't, but well, if they did, it's not something the mainstream american knows about.
I can relate to your misquito problem though, we have misquitos here also, only they're called telemarketers and sometimes bill collectors. they have your phone ringing off the hook, trying to sell you a wide range of useless crap, or asking you to just give your money away. now days, many of these calls are being made by people with such poor english skills I have no idea really what they want. maybe you should petition the government to set up a "do not call list" like they have here? ain't saying it will help much, we're on one, and we still get the stupid calls, but well, then you can threaten to report them.
seriously.....though. there are betters ways your government can address this one than to try to send an entire group of people to slave camps to exploit. and if they don't develope those other means, like measures against false advertising, telemarketing, fair trade practices, labor laws, pollution controls, ect. the capitalists will be much more irratating and intrusive than this group will be.
Zhangai, 'circle' is the shape of a wheel. As in 'circle of life'.
Now what's a bingy? Lower abdomen area of the body? The guy died trying to cut the wheel out of his bingy? yeowsers
As an outsider looking in, communism is supposed to be all about the People. What it seems though, is the leaders have always gotten the spoils while the people get what they can scrape together. The leaders play by capitalists rules, while the people pull together and still get the short end of the stick.
This is why I will always support Taiwan over mainland China, and their fight to remain a democratic nation.
Anyway, here's the stitch, The United States and its 230 year history, with what...600 million people or so?
China - 5000+ years of history, population 1 billion?
I think Americans should leave this up to the Chinese.
I also don't feel we have a right to interrogate the Chinese government on Tienanmen Square as the US government has 'rudely' demanded.
There are a lot of people (not enough) in this country who realize that we can love our country and still disagree with our government and its cultural politics.
It sickens me to see what this country is doing to the rest of the world.
I hate knowing that many Asian women are cutting up their beautiful eyes to look more western.
I hate that babies are losing their childhoods making Nikes.
I hate that there are women selling their children as sex slaves because western men have created a market for it and they desperate for food.
Japan is facing obesity issues because they have adopted western eating habits.
Look around, do we LOOK like we know how to eat??
Don't get me started on western religion, but, where's the logic in teaching the 1+1 to a bunch of mathematicians?
We boast democracy in a country where 1% of the population owns 99% of the wealth!
I say, let China audit the United States, remove those in office who are detrimental to the growth of this country.
We do it all the time!
I'm just saying..
Don't let the western world euro-nate all over your precious culture.
And would you please teach us a thing or two about humility?
Since its public introduction in May 1992, Falun Dafa has attracted over 100 million practitioners worldwide in just ten years. Falun Dafa cultivation emphasizes that one should conduct oneself according to the principle of "Truth-Compassion-Tolerance". Regardless of gender and age, regardless of nationality and race, every practitioner who persistently cultivates his/her heart and practices the exercises has benefited tremendously. Constant diligent cultivation has brought significant changes to many practitioners in both physical conditions and moral values. At the same time, Falun Dafa is gaining worldwide understanding and appreciation, especially in Asia, Australia, Europe, and North America.
