As for any possible Chinese military intervention in Canada, keep dreaming. Not only will the US remain the world's only military superpower for at least a few generations (and regardless of the US, Britain and France together are more capable militarily than China, and Russia and India are close) yet, but the chances are greater that China itself will collapse, economically and politically. THE ONLY REASON China has seen the kind of economic growth it has in recent years is becuase it's a totalitarian state, with a planned economy (read both the USSR and Germany in the 1930's...phenomenal growth) and even that growth has been superficial and fueled by western interests. Totalitarianism and advanced economies are not capable of co-existing for long (of course China is FAR off from being an advanced economy). There have beeb an estimated 200,000 riots in China this year (most unreported). Your Party is starting to lose its grip! And before you put the rose-coloured glasses on, China is a long way off from being capable of a peaceful transformation to a western style liberal democracy. History repeats itself, read 1940's China. Do you know why Taiwan is not part of the People's Republic?
Na the Chinese are already projected to have the strongest military by 2030

but militarily it wont matter..as the USA is a waning power...

China needs to just get strong enough to deter the USA from attacking it in a last ditch effort to keep from going under...

btw its a catch 22 China is transitioning into a service based economy

you should take off your rose colored glasses because 4 years ago China was highly dependent on that investment and exporting...

4 years ago most expected China to go under... the USA wiping out the world economy... crashing its own...

China highly dependent on the USA for trade having to shutter 100 thousand factories and watching 20 million go out of work...

yet you still got those rose colored glasses on...as China continues to have trade surpluses... even as it transitions into a service based economy...

retards like you keep talking about how China is going to crash...

while pretending the USA can just continue to do what it does...

well then dummy nothing changes...

China will continue to export, while it slowly transitions over to a service based economy...

because the USA will continue to do what it does and thats overspend and borrow money

China steps carefully with protesting middle class
By GILLIAN WONG | Associated Press – Mon, Oct 29, 2012

NINGBO, China (AP)— A victory by protesters against the expansion of a chemical plant proves the new rule in China: The authoritarian government is scared of middle-class rebellion and will give in if the demonstrators' aims are limited and not openly political.

It's far from a revolution. China's nascent middle class, the product of the past decade's economic boom, is looking for better government, not a different one. They're especially concerned about issues like health, education and property values and often resist the growth-at-all-costs model Beijing has pushed.

whats there to be delusional about...

if nothing is going to happen to the USA... then it will continue to buy Chinese goods and China will continue to export them...

allowing China the luxury to transition over...plus all they really need is 5 years of the same old same old...

and their wealth doubles...

with the election of Obama... nothing changes for the next 4 years..

not that Romney would have been able to do anything anyways

Obama was and still is your best chance to make the changes the USA needs... but he has been useless in being elected

Well, you might want to elaborate on that a bit. You see, trade and prosperity depend on the rule of law, a mechanism to resolve disputes without violence. security from foreign invasion and stability. Where there are opportunities, settlers will go.
This is what the British brought to Singapore and Hong Kong, the French to Vietnam, the Dutch to the East Indies. Ask a Ugandan Indian what happened after independence.
Whites went abroad to dominate under the pretense of trade.

India may be a match for Pakistan.

But against China, India is a joke. Remember 1962?

Canadian govt. approved the sale of Nexen to a Chinese state owned oil and gas company.

Like it or not, Canada can no longer bank on the US alone for trade and economic growth.

whites I idea of domination is to put bases in a country...

or send big multinational corporations over... but when the economy of the country goes to hell or the locals get too much to handle they pull up stakes and run away...

Chinese domination comes from their Ethnic migrants... who do so well in school and economically...

a economic decline war or even civil war... gives these Ethnic Chinese even more opportunity to dominate...which they gladly adapt and take on the challenge...

where whites look at it as a sign to give up...

I think this is where "Dunning–Kruger effect" takes front stage...

any sign of adversity the whites pack their bags and give up...

East Asians looks at it as a sign to try even harder

i agree with Rick. There are hundreds of thousands of lower mainlanders who agree with his comments. There are many who are afraid to be vocal and say this out loud pubicly for fear of being politically incorrect or accused of racism. Fact is: these pan faced monkees are greedy, rude and value money above all else. A huge percentage of the population is disgusted with them and their actions...and you will see a huge backlash against them where they will be put in their place and made to be unwanted here.It's not anti-Asian...it's anti Chinese. Nobody has a problem with the japanese, korean, vietnamese or filipino citizens living in the lower mainland...only with the Chinese maggots.
