Just think Deng! If those Marines weren't afraid of a Cobra, what makes you think that they are afraid of a 'rice bowl pirate'-especially a 'communist/marxist rice bowl pirate'?

you think that they are afraid

WHAT IS BEING SAID IS U.S. TROOPS ARE FIGHTING FOR THE FREEDOM TO INVADE OTHER COUNTRIES AND STEAL THE LOOT AND CARRY OFF ALL THE MONEY AND GOLD, JUST LIKE IN THE OLD DAYS, 3,000 YEARS AGO

I want to thank you for your appreciation for what the United States did for the people of China when China was occupied by those Japanese fellows. BTW. Those islands don't belong to you. They belong to those Japanese folks who occupied your country for about 5 years. You Chinese folks are on your own this next time around.

Japanese folks

THAT'S NICE, THAT YOU THANK THE JAPANESE FOR BEING AN ALLY, AFTER THEY GOT AWAY WITHOUT PUNISHMENT, FOR BUTCHERING HUNDREDS OF UNITED STATES PRISONERS OF WAR ALIVE FOR MEDICAL EXPERIMENTS IN WORLD WAR TWO.

YOU ARE LIKE YOUR GOVERNMENT, AND FORGIVE JAPAN FOR THEIR CRIMES AGAINST AMERICAN TROOPS

No Deng Dong, I was thanking you for how you appreciate what my country did for the Chinese people when Japan occupied China. But see, you don't appreciate what we did for your people. I mean, you know the old Chinese saying.

"The enemy of my enemy is my friend". Or maybe that's too deep for you to deal with.

Louis Read of the 31st Infantry Regiment witnessed a killing of his fellow POW:

....a Japanese officer came up, looked us over, and selected a rather tall, good-looking soldier, who was just in front of me, out of the line. The officer, for no apparent reason, turned over this man to a group of soldiers who took him across the road, tied to a tree and used him for bayonet practice.....the Japanese soldiers pushed me aside and washed the blood off of their bayonets. YOU SOUND LIKE YOU HAVE A LOT IN COMMON WITH YOUR UNCHANGING JAPAN ALLY???

Harold Poole of Army Air Corps also remembered:

Some of the guys would just faint, they were that weak. This guy was no more than five feet away. He was lying facedown. The guard poked him and he didn’t move fast enough, so he got the bayonet right through his back….

I could hardly believe what I saw….

I wanted to jump that guard and grab his rifle and wrap it around his neck, and I could have in those days. I was still in pretty good shape and those guys were a lot smaller than us. I could have jumped up and wrapped that gun around his neck and he’d never have known what hit him. But you know, there was another guard behind him and he would have shot me and that would have been the end of me, see.[2]

Would you like me to tell you about the Chinese soldiers and the atrocities committed on American soldiers during the Korean war? Or do you just ignore what you don't want others to see about Chinese treachery?

The Chinese did not treat US POWs well. I know one who was taken prisoner when the Chinese crossed the Yellow River. He would cut your guts out for saying the Chinese treated him well. See, you parrot the party propaganda to prove a pointless point. I know a man who was there-a POW that will tell everyone what it was really like.

You are a shameful person. You are not to be respected for lying.

Chinese troops weren't acting like Japanese. They were acting like Chinese troops under the command of Democratic Peoples Republic of North Korea. The Chinese committed atrocities on American POWs. My friend knew the difference Deng the Liar.

You are a despicable, loathing liar who gets no respect-none at all. You are a shameful person and you bring shame on your family.

liar

BUT THEN WHEN AN ARMY INVADES AND COMMITS ALL SORTS OF CRIMES FOR PROFITS LIKE IN KOREA, VIETNAM, IRAQ, AFGHANISTAN, GIVE ONE REASON WHY U.S. TROOPS SHOULDN'T JUST BE PUT ON TRIAL FOR CRIMES AGAINST HUMANITY BASED ON THE LAWS OF THE FOURTH GENEVA CONVENTION, AND JUST SHOT ON THE SPOT???

ALL COUNTRIES THAT THE U.S. INVADES HAVE EVERY RIGHT TO PUT THE U.S. TROOPS ON TRIAL FOR CRIMES BASED ON THE FOURTH GENEVA CONVENTION IN 1949.

Well said.The trouble with these yanks Deng is that your dealing with a people who have been been brain-washed from an early age. Swearing an oath every school day. it's not healthy and only leads to closed minds.
Your pissing in the wind trying to educate them. The majority still think they are victims. little realising that they, The US ARE the baddies. A true, "Evil Empire".(R.Reagan). Pity them mate,pity them.
Ocupation is a crime,PERIOD. Victory to the Resistance
