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.

i think some people need to do a little more research on china. although their economy is growing, they still have over 700 million people living in abject poverty, another 150 million people with "jobs" that barely allow them to survive, massive amounts of air and water pollution, food supplies that have little or no oversite as to their safety.
politically, they are fighting off the element of freedom that is manifesting itself in the form of protests and anger at the centralized government. china's legal system is fueling alot of distrust and animosity toward the government, their police and local law enforcement are corrupt, and excepting bribes is a common practice. all is not so rosy in china, believe me, they are still in a precarious situation with their own internal problems.

I think about those rounded up, as they wear their winter clothes, a hand made sweater, a leather coat, standing at the walls of a grave, in full sunlight. And then I consider the bullets piercing the heads, shot by uniformed goons in stylish, wide, sunglasses. Sometimes I reach for a guitar.
In full sunlight.
Don't they know what this means?

We need some Anti-Chinese songs to get back at them!!!
Maybe, we can get Kanye and Wayne to preform a couple of their auto-tune songs featuring the Dahlia Llama next time we decide to roll into the corporate-toxic-waste-dump that is China. That sure will piss em off..

The song is a patriot tune, but it's association to that movie is merely the same way that "ride of the valkyries" is associated to apocalypse Now.
So yes, there is doubt.

we (America) have TV shows making fun of the Chinese, seems fair that they are able to criticize us as well.
