Very advanced satellite, in fact the most adcanced of its kind in the world. How did the Chinese advanced so fast, according to Western sources, China is not supposed to have things like for another thirty years?

"NASA is mapping out a strategy to return bits of rock and soil from the Martian surface to Earth, but the most intriguing Red Planet samples lie in underground caverns, some scientists say.
The space agency's next steps at Mars are geared toward mounting a sample-return mission, which is widely viewed as the best way to look for signs of Red Planet life. "

Mars.......Now a US territory.

That may be true but one of their Test Rockets last year failed and when it Crushed in a City the entired City was BURNED DOWN and DESTROYED with the people on it. The Chinese Government has Arrested and Killed anyone who tried to Film or take a Photo of the City that Dissappeared of the Map. This year someone was able to Secretely drive on a road on his car and used a Mobile Phone to Film the former City with 5 to 10 floors high Buildings all Totally destroyed and burned down just like a War Zone. The Chinese does not care a damn if a City and the people on it are EVAPORATED on their Progress to take over the Moon like they said this year that they want the Moon. The funny thing is that the Moon is not located in East Asia but they do not care they just want the Moon just like the Japanese wanted to Rule the World. If China does not Stop their Sick Dreams of trying to Rule Space too the Nukes are going to FALL on their countries where they Kill their own people to Sell thier body parts. F**K with China Government.

Roses are red
Violets are blue
Sugar is sweet
And so are you

But now the roses are wilting
The violets are dead
The sugar bowl's empty
Just like your head

The Chinese then hid the city in the basement of the communist party so Google Earth would not put it on the net for everyone to see. Where the city once stood the put a large sign which reads;
...
"A new Pizza Hut is being built here".

God you people love to display you ignorance at thee real world! Do your homework, eat you greens, always kiss your mum "good night" and go to bed early. Come back when your balls drop. It is an embarrassment to be from the west when I read this crap. Have you ever wondered why China is leaving the rest of the world behind?

Yes, it is in some ways isn't it? The kids behave the way we did in the 50s. You don't get swore at and accosted in the street by a bunch of 10 year olds here. Perhaps because there are still some family values. Not as advanced as the family values in America, just cheap Chinese family values! Kids can ride their bike to school. You can catch a bus in the town and a train for long trips. You don't need a car at all. Just like when I was a kid in the 50s. We should be so grateful we left all that behind. I don't know how long it will be however before the first crack house opens, before the buses and trains aren't safe to ride, if they still exist of course. Kids here might get so smart they start shooting each other too. Some of the joys of the place is exactly what you say. It is still like the 50s. Problem is they don't understand the value of it and want to be like America! Yes, just like you!

True, Chinese want to be like Americans.

The ability of the Chinese to indulge in weepy nostalgia is limited, however.

While Senile old ozzies were sneaking cigarettes behind the soda fountain/drug store safe in that magical idyll, the Chinese were being repeatedly brutalized by the CCP's various anti-landlord, anti-rightist, anti-Chinese, anti-reactionary, anti-business, anti-intellectual, etc., campaigns.

Talk frankly to older Chinese who lived through those years, and you will be appalled.

After the horrors of the last sixty years, it is only sensible that the Chinese wish for a life like Americans have.
