devmim, you should give links to this supposed article where the US tells Taiwan to destroy the three gorge damn in China..... Where is the link?
Links, we need links...
You think that making laughing faces and not presenting any links with "actual information" as to what you are saying is going to make anyone think
you are right? Guess again....
As for the US trying to paint communism as evil...there is no need, those who have lived to see what communism does know that
Have you ever heard of an American official defecting to China? No, but there are several Chinese officials defecting to the US. I wonder why....
Also btw, i want to see a link with a statement of the US making a "direct threat to China", something like, "War with China is inevitable and we
must make sure we have the upper hand...", which we had a chinese official stating in 1999. Now in response to your asinine comment about the US
making China look evil here are a few links to refresh your memory.
" December 1999 statement of Gen. Chi Haotian, defense minister and vice-chairman of the Communist Party's Central Military Commission:
"Seen from the changes in the world situation and the hegemonic strategy of the United States to create monopolarity . . . war is inevitable. We
cannot avoid it. The issue is that the Chinese armed forces must control the initiative in this war military bloc headed by U.S. hegemonists. . . . We
must be prepared to fight for one year, two years, three years or even longer." So far as I know there has been no repudiation of the statement by
Gen. Chi, who for his role in the 1989 slaughter of defenseless.
"Since the late 1980s, Beijing has come to see the United States not as a strategic partner but as the chief obstacle to its own strategic ambitions.
It has, therefore, worked to reduce American influence in Asia, to prevent Japan and the United States from creating a "contain China" front, to
build up a military with force projection capability, and to expand its presence in the South China and East China Seas so that it controls the
region's essential sea-lanes. China's sheer size and inherent strength, its conception of itself as a center of global civilization, and its
eagerness to redeem centuries of humiliating weakness are propelling it toward Asian hegemony. Its goal is to ensure that no country in the region --
whether Japan seeking oil exploration rights in the East China Sea, Taiwan inviting the Dalai Lama for an official visit, or Thailand allowing
American naval vessels to dock in its ports -- will act without taking China's interests into prime consideration.
Influential Chinese planners like General Mi Zhenyu, vice-commandant of the Academy of Military Sciences in Beijing, on the other hand, will see it
as the next step in bringing China's strength and influence up to par with the United States. "For a relatively long time it will be absolutely
necessary that we quietly nurse our sense of vengeance," Mi wrote last year. "We must conceal our abilities and bide our time."
The below is a paper which I cannot copy here because i do not have permission from the Canadian Department of National Defence, but below is the
link. The paper was written by/par Major H.A. Hynes, a student at the Canadian Forces College. Althou it does say that it is an scholastic document,
and thus it contains facts and opinions, that it does not necessarily states the policy or opinion of any agency, or the Canadian government. It is
still a good read.
The Chinese government have seen democratic presidents as friends, since most, if not all, democratic presidents have been selling the US to the
Chinese communist government, and also to the Russians.
" "We like your president. I will give you 300,000 U.S. dollars. You can give it to the president and the Democratic Party. We hope he will be

Times, May 7, 1999) "
It was president Jimmy Carter who made a treaty to give away the Panama canal, which was built by the taxes and blood that Americans paid, and it was
finally Clinton...another democrat... who made official the transfer on December 14 of 1999. Clinton was obviously in a hurry to make this transfer
before the official December 31 transfer...
" Hutchison Whampoa, a front company for China's People's Liberation Army (PLA), has already acquired leases giving it control of the ports of
Cristobal and Balboa at each end of the Canal. Hutchison Whampoa is also in the process of taking over Rodman Naval Station and other military
facilities being abandoned by the United States. Whampoa pays Panama $22.2 million a year and makes large investments in the country's
infrastructure. This company, headed by Li Kashing, is closely tied with the China Ocean Shipping Co. (COSCO), which is controlled by the military
industrial complex of the Chinese government. COSCO is the same company that almost succeeded in gaining control of the abandoned naval station at
Long Beach, Calif. The canal is a vital component of American trade and defense capabilities. With the Chinese gaining a foothold in our backyard, we
are extremely susceptible to their ballistic missiles. "
Or if you prefer Devnim I could do what you do, just laugh my butt off and without posting any links to back up my statements, ask for everyone not to
fall for what you are saying and the lies the Chinese government is feeding to the media... Oh btw...is there freedom of speech in China? or freedom
of the press?..........
