Re: Can the US be Defeated by Russia or China?...

We need to get down to the basics here. The US will not, nor shall it in the foreseeable future, launch a land invasion anywhere in Eurasia. Why should it? All speculation on that is idle twaddle. Because unless it does it, it will never be able to stop Russia and China being capable of stopping US...

Re: The Ultimate Insult - Hongkee protestors waved British flag

Only in the last three years before transfer of power to China were some vaguely democratic changes introduced in this system. I doubt the people of Hong Kong would like to go back to such undemocratic rule. Technically true, but so what! No, they may not want to go back to that but I suspect that ...

Re: the home turf comes first.

Ensuring the safety of...

Re: The Ultimate Insult - Hongkee protestors waved British flag

Leftist University professors see the west as the source of evil. They find it difficult to acknowledge this. It does not fit into the narrative they are indoctrinating their students. "Leftist university professors" do not see the West as the source of evil. The capitalist system is the source of ...

Re: The Ultimate Insult - Hongkee protestors waved British flag

So, the Honkers ;) are now finally telling the World that there is a positive side to having been subjected to over a century of British colonial rule in the form of a legacy of respect for civil rights and freedoms protected by rule of law.

Re: Make Hong Kong Great Again

Congratulations, neverfail. We only have to see the cases of innocent people in the US being condemned to long sentences, a...
