Well, think about all the american products. As soon as China gains an economic advantage, the rest of the country will follow. But this is not Just China either.

Our country is scared to death of China now. China could so easily wipe us out and it seems they have already started by poisoning everything that comes into this country.

how could china easily wipe us out? send millions of chinese over by boat to land on our shores? c'mon, that'd be like shooting ducks in a barrel.

it seems to me that you are afraid of china, not the United States. personally, I'm not afraid of anyone like most true Americans.

what are you? some ultra left wing pansy?

There is no ill intent on the part of China towards us. There is nothing to be afraid of. There can never be war between China and the US.

In my opinion, the only desire the Chinese has is that we extend to them the same respect they have toward us.

Our administration has always been and still is trying to contain China's grouth. This has proven to be futile. This had not worked. So what we need to do is to be practical. If we have always considered China as an enemy(at least, latent}, it is about time to start considering them as friends. Think of having them as partners in maintaining world peace. The paradox is that if we do not start thinking of making them as partners in maintaining world peace, they will. We, as the greatest superpower on earth will look 'very small' if we reject their invitation to be partners in maintaining world peace. Don't we need them to help us out with the North Korean and Iran issues? Yet Bush visited Mongolia with what intent? We no longer are able to impose our conditions in order to be friendly partners. They have a different political system by necessity and they will not change until they will be ready for it. If we do not understand why? Ask Henry Kissinger why they cannot change their political system as yet.

Also, what military might? China should focus on inproving the living standard of its people in a ecological friendly way. Along with building the world's best virtual(financial, education, political) and physical (transporation, communications) infrastructure. The US military will destroy itself with its wars with "rogue" states.

How about you actually read the news before you post? China not only has one of the most represive governments in the world, but they also support crap regimes such as the one in Burma. China is about the last nation on earth that is helping anyone but themselves. Hey if you don't believe me, google a human rights watch list, then you will have a clue next time before you post more drivel like you just did in that post.

well, could say the same thing for black death that was originated from China in 18th centuaries but that doesn't mean that the Chinese have bad culture or morals. Its just in rural areas people are poor, and I guess they live close with animals. All you need is to change standard of living, and Voila, problem solved!
