In America, we use a form of expression called "sarcasm" ... you may wish to check that in your English dictionary. I was not advocating that China should attack India, rather, I was pointing out the absurdity and futility of a scenario that normally takes its course in nature when there is overpopulation or madness.

By the way, unlike Russia and the former Soviet Union, we have not had purges of millions of our people by our own leaders ... not yet, at least ... but there are "Country Joes" everywhere, so we need to be vigilant.

Still Kenhunt who is professor of English and an American also haven't understood your sarcasm (scroll back and read)- it gives me reason to believe that you was not able to communicate your point....also your naive perseption that I am not aware about purges shows a lot...

LOL. The person I was replying to posted from the Netherlands, so it was that country I was referring to.

But the USA has helped China in more than two ways. Off the top of my balding head, I can think of the defeat of Japan in WWII, which ended their terrible activities in China; US funding of China's purchases of war materiel in WWII and the famed Burma Road efforts; if one counts Taiwan as Chinese, we helped it. US cooperation with China in anti-terrorism activities have been useful.

But it would be shallow to think of the US's contributions to China as merely military. If you'd like, I can list maybe numerous scientific, medical, governmental, charitable, industrial, and agricultural contributions. If your inquiring mind needs help with that, just ask.

I scrolled back and can't find the comment you mention. What is its number? I am pretty good at sarcasm, but I do miss the point from time to time.

You could be right.

China could replace the USA and replace the USA by economic might alone, without ressorting to military superiority.

So far, the indications are that China is on its way to become the workshop of the world and its bank too.

China has show no desire to extend its military footprint beyond its immediate borders and demonstrated very little interest in interfering in other countries affairs.

A very pragmatic approach, and well in contrast to previous imperialist powers.

Americans always think they 'helped' all the nations of the world.

Other people have a different perception and know fully well that their 'help' is often part of an ulterior motive: take position on the ground, capture a new market, find a new customer to sell arms, install a compliant government, obtain a diplomatic ally, interfere in the economy, create military bases, extend their influence, etc...

There is no such thing as US benevolent help ...

World's Idiot: Here is an example of America's contribution. This guy saw the starvation, in this case in Mexico, and came back determined to find a solution. Because of his solution, about a billion people are alive today.

"American Nobel Prize Laureate Norman Borlaug was probably the most important human of the 21st century, yet most people have never heard of him. He developed the high-yield, disease-resistant strain of wheat that sparked the "Green Revolution" that is credited with saving 1 billion people in the 3rd world from starvation.

Borlaug died in Texas at the age of 95."

Actually, the poor in China are not even that poor anymore. And their numbers are shrinking every year, as more join the middle class.

You can sit on your German butt and do nothing, yet make wishes for a better future with China, Russia, and India, three countries which cannot even feed their own populations? Some super race you are! I've got it: adopt several Indian babies before they starve to death (6000 a day do), raise them as Germans and when they are adults they can sit on their German asses and wish for a better future!
Actually, not only is China self-sufficient in food supply and is a net food exporter today.

Unlike your Finland, U.S., or most European countries, China has NO troops in Afghanistan or Iraq.

These days, China and India cooperate and trade.

Not all of them. But you are right. In China there is a huge gap between rich and poor.
And there is a huge gap between the rich and poor in the U.S. China only surpassed the U.S. in Gini Index just recently. U.S. was recently 45, while China 47. When the post "Great Recession" figures are known, the U.S. ones will certainly rise, due to the increase in the number of poor, as the middle class shrinks.

Of course the world will be more peaceful then. First, you don't see Chinese troops in Afghanistan or Iraq. Second, China has not fought a minor war since 1979 or 30 years ago. And the last major war China fought in was the Korean War 56 years ago.
