China's spacewalk astronauts return as heroes

BEIJING (Reuters) - Three Chinese astronauts landed safely back on earth on Sunday after a 68-hour voyage and space walk that showcased the country's technological mastery and were hailed as a major victory by its leaders.

Their Shenzhou ("sacred vessel") spacecraft parachuted down to the steppes of northern Inner Mongolia region at dusk. Doctors rushed to open the capsule and check the men as they readjusted to gravity and recovered from the punishing re-entry.

Premier Wen Jiabao told the nation minutes later that the three were heroes for their efforts, which put China in an elite club of three nations that have managed a space walk.

Well, well.

China is now a 1st world country and America is fast becomming a 2nd world failed nation state.

The international bankers have sucked the U.S. dry and have now moved onto thier new host.

China now has all of America's industry and technilogical know how. Including a budding space program. And our sorry ass leaders can't think of anything else except how to save themsleves and keep this funny money charade alive for a few weeks longer.

I imagine India will be next. Although I'm not sure that they like India as much. Probably something to do with thier attitudes.
