Too bad China does not have the same interest of her own peoples well being as she does for technological acheivement. The people of China are China. What good is high tech if it comes at the cost of killing the streams, rivers, people, animals, and earth of Chinese people? What is more important, a temporary technology or centuries of pollution and death?

The best thing for China in your opinion is to stay backward, poor, uneducated, militarily weak, factional and regional fighting like in the old days.

It's all made from INTEL and other components. Not really Chinese at all...a Nokia cellphone made in a factory in China is not Chinese by design.

Yes, and the best periord was the Romance of the 3 Kingdom. I used to play that computer a lot too. I always played as Liu Bei, you know the one with the two sworn brothers Guan Yu and Zhang Fei.

My most favorite general in that period was Zhao Yue, the one that rescued Liu Bei's child. He fought through the sea of Cao-Cao's army, cutting through like butter. One hand he held the child and shield him. The other hand he held a long spear fighting off and killed the enemies.

That was so heoric and legendary. Although he did had a lot of help from Cao-Cao. Cao-Cao saw the beginning of the fight and wanted to capture Zhao Yue alive, so he forbid his troops to shoot or directly killed Zhao Yue. He ordered the troops to capture the guy alive. That's a very hard task, thus they failed.

The legend completed the act with the description that Zhao Yue, the horse and the baby were completely covered in blood as he slaughtered so may enemies during the fight (and the escape). He killed a couple dozen enemies Generals/Commanders as well as a few hundred troops.

But look at now day, Chinese dudes are just a bunch of craps, small, wimpy and stupid. I call them wimp-lo. So sad, for the once proud people. The best were long gone, and killed off.
