"My Motherland" was called as "A Big River" (Chinese: 一条大河) by the author initially; it represented the hundreds of rivers that flowed by the homes of the Chinese people. The title was changed when it was published with movie.
Although the song was written for the movie about Korean War in 1950s, there is no mention of the war at all. It describes a soldier (or anyone who is away from home) thinking about his home and his family. Thus, this song is extremely popular even when the movie itself is almost forgotten.
propaganda pie?doesn't your government specialise in this?''all a front and a lie'' ha ha ha pissed because the Chinese are better at this than your government with the token negroe as president.

Photos Show That Chairman Hu's Welcomers Were Paid
When Chinese Chairman Hu Jintao came to Washington, his reception had been planned with great care—not only by the White House, but the Chinese Embassy too.
The embassy put the word out to its network of front groups to mobilize: thousands of students and others would descend on the capital, their transportation and food would be covered, and they would be paid between $20 and $80.
Chinese Embassy Pays Students to Welcome ‘Chairman Hu’
Students and front groups used to keep protestors out of sight.
Chinese officials do not want the welcoming ceremonies for Hu Jintao to appear like top-down directives, according to Boxun, a Chinese website based outside China. An official from the education division from the Chinese Consulate in Chicago told students at a recent meeting, according to Boxun: “If you run into journalists trying to interview you, just say you came spontaneously to do the welcome, and paid for all your own costs
AGAIN .. IF IF these stories are true .. then we all just got served up a nasty helping of propaganda pie .. Chinese style. Nothing has changed with that countrys leadership and way of doing things. It's all a front and a lie. And our tax money paid for the state visit at our end. :shk:
Oh .. one last thing .. FREE TIBET!!
There .. I said it. The Communists made sure the signs weren't seen in DC.
But I can still say it here .. (for now anyways).

Maybe Obama didn't bow low enough this time?
The man has no backbone. (Not needed second line.)

I can see where the OP is coming from, but I think this might a slight overreaction.
We display American pride at the expense of foreigners everyday. Although I am not aware of an example of the same nature as this state dinner, I would not be surprised to learn of one.

Epoch Times has a habit of making things up to make the PRC government look bad.
They were the ones saying that the 2008 Sichuan earthquake was a bomb test, and that people were dying from radiation poisoning. Among other things.
I'd retire this one to the Sorcha Fail file for now.

But china doesn't come off looking bad in this one. It's the U.S. led by an obviously naive and out of his league obama that really comes off looking bad.
