Re: speaking of the pot calling the kettle "black"...

[ The guy is in a fantasyland. My diagnosis is that the root cause is his deep faith in Socialism. From this springs all his wacky out-of-touch, unrealistic world view. :lol: Pot calls kettle black.

Re: When the Tianamen comes again

That's 18 years ago. If China is going to collapse, it's taking its sweet time about it. Chang did say long term. How long is long term?

Re: The US and Vietnam are all lovey-dovey now....

In the usual anti-American scrum whenever Vietnam comes up it is often forgotten that France was actively interfering in their affairs for well over a century and directly ran the place as a combination opium den/brothel for nearly that long. Damaging though America's involvement was, I am inclined ...
