When We were called Sick man of Asia, We were called The Peril.

When We are billed to be the next Superpower, We are called The threat.

When We closed our doors, You smuggled Drugs to Open Markets.

When We Embrace Freed Trade, You blamed us for Taking away your jobs.

When We were falling apart, You marched in your troops and wanted your fair share.

When We were putting the broken pieces together again, Free Tibet you screamed, it was an invasion!

So, We Tried Communism, You hated us for being Communists.

When We embrace Capitalism, You hate us for being Capitalist.

When We have a Billion People, you said we were destroying the planet.

When We tried to limit our numbers, you said It was human rights abuse.

When We were Poor, You think we are dogs.

When We Loan you cash, You blame us for your debts.

When We build our industries, You called us Polluters.

When we sell you goods, You blame us for global warming.

When We buy oil, You called that exploitation and Genocide.

When You fight for oil, You called that Liberation.

When We were lost in Chaos and rampage, You wanted Rules of Law for us.

When We uphold law and order against Violence, You called that Violating Human Rights.

When We were silent, You said you want us to have Free Speech.

When We were silent no more, You say we were Brainwashed Xenophobics.

Why do you hate us so much? We asked.

No, You Answered, We dont hate You.

We dont Hate You either, But Do you understand us?

Of course We do, You said, We have AFP, CNN and BBC

When you are billed to be the next Superpower, you are called The threat because your lack of democracy. We´ve seen it before in Japan, Soviet and Germany and don't want to see another strong dictatorship again.

When you Embrace Freed Trade, we did not blame you for Taking away our jobs. We still blame you for not embracing free trade by using the wrong exchange rates.

When you were putting the broken pieces together again, Free Tibet we screamed, it was an invasion! And it still is. Putting the pieces together is not ok by invasion. Hitler did the same thing when he invaded germanspeaking parts of Europe that they lost during WWI. It was not ok then and is not ok today.

So, you Tried Communism, we hated us for being Communists. Or, actually we didn't. But we do hate dictatorship and even chinese must hate Mao for all the failures he did. Especially the great leap forward.

When you embrace Capitalism, we do not hate you for being Capitalist. In fact we encourage you to be more capitalist. So go ahead and lose the red flag and the communist icons in it. We salute that.

When you have a Billion People, we did not say you were destroying the planet.

When you were Poor, we had great empathy for the chinese people but not for the regime.

When you Loan us cash, we do not blame you for our debts.

When you build industries, we call you Polluters as too few of the heavy industries are cleaning the exhaust. If you did that no one would call you polluters.

When you sell us goods, we blame us for global warming as you pollute more than western industries.

When you buy oil, we call it exploitation and Genocide. By supporting the genocides in Darfur there can't be anything else said about it. As late as the other day evidence were shown by the BBC that china is supporting the genocide by selling arms to a country the world have decided to put an embargo against.

When we fight for oil, some parts of our crappy government called that Liberation. If nothing else it shows that no one is perfect. Maybe that is why you hate us and students were singing and dancing ath Beijing University on 9/11?

When We were lost in Chaos and rampage, You wanted Rules of Law for us. Don't even understand what you mean.

When you uphold law and order against Violence by putting innocent people and critics to the regime in prison, or even worse and executing them, we call that Violating Human Rights.

When you were silent, we said you want us to have Free Speech and we still do.

When you were silent no more, no one of us say you are Brainwashed Xenophobics. But the way you are writing I'm quite worried that you are one.

Why do we hate you so much? you asked.

No, we Answered, We dont hate You.

But the way your are writing I'm afraid you do hate us but if you say you dont Hate us either, I guess I have to take your word for it. But I do not understand you.

What we really want from you is to live up to human rights resolutions.

This crap is the reason conflict may become inevitable between the East and the West. Democracy is not the end-all, be-all in governmental institutions and like any other form of government, it has its pros and cons. The real reason the West despises China is because the Chinese have found a way to excel without playing by the 'western rules.' The Chinese people have a right to be proud of their history, culture and heritage, and if that includes a Communist goverment, then they have a right to be proud of that also.
If you people continue to deomonize China, it will be the greatest lost opportunity for the West.

I agree with the last entry. After watching this year's Olympics, I am convinced China is a force to be reckoned with..and a country to be feared. Their people are disciplined while us in the West are getting fat and lazy.

Well said by Matt and Jon. I'd like to add to their point by saying: The white man (americans and europeans) have had a long history of "empire". Throughout their history, the have invaded, occupied and "ruled" over indigenous people all over the world. For God's sake, the USA as we know it was conquered by killing is displacing native americans, mexicans, etc.

The white man's "ideal" is to rule the world while the black, brown, yellow people bow down to their authority.

They feel very uncomfortable and "threatened" when China is growing Economically, Politically, and Militarily. I believe however, that China has no intentions of "empire" the same way the west has done.

the Question is: Why can't Westerners bomb China ?

Answers:
1. China can fight back
2. USA wants to borrow more
3. USA needs China for cheap labor
4. USA is now owned by China
5. USA can not mess with a sleeping Giant

I fully agree. I would hate to be in a communist country and I think a communist country is the best most humane form of government on paper (but too easy to mess up in reality). Then again, Democracy seems to be the best most humane on paper.... well never mind. Point proven again! Anyway, I think there are faults in every country and in this case its a battle for the best. Is that wrong!? I commend china for their greatness and I commend ours for ours. I am saddened and angered by chinas weaknesses, but again I am of ours. Go USA! Go China!

I think there is just a lot of misinformation on both sides. Besides, China invested a lot of money into U.S... same goes for other countries like Saudi Arabia. If U.S. fails economically, then alot of foreign investors will loose money too.. so I think they will keep U.S. afloat no matter what. If Americans what to be world players again, they should really invest in their public education system and monitor budget wisely.. too much money is being thrown away.

Do not lose sight that Chinese businesses and government systematically steal intellectual property, just take a look at the new Chinese cell phone mini-presentation-projector and you will see Apple iPhone icons in use copied without license.
Look in the airport kiosk and you can by SolidWorks CAD, ProEngineer CAD, Altium Electronics Designer CAD, Windows XP (all with key-generators), and other computer applications for sale for a few dollars; condoned by the Chinese govenrment.
This causes billions of dollars in lost revenue to businesses in the US and Europe.
And after all the illegitimate windows XP installations in China can no longer get security updates due to stricter authentification, China sues Microsoft for antitrust... honorable and fair trade?
When will the US and European governments address the IP theft problem?

I am through expecting anything of China. Let us have our nuclear exchange and be done with this. You idiots comparing economies or olympic medals don't see the real picture. This is life or death. I don't see it any other way. The world is better off dead than ruled by China. Think about the reality for a second. There isn't enough resources in the world for all the Chinese and Indians to have standards of living equal to 300 million Americans. There isn't even enough resources for 300 million Americans!
Beyond that impossible dream---
China supports bad regimes. Darfur, Zimbawae and Burma.
Why would anyone want to clap their hands for such an evil country?
Wake up, the world is headed for an environmental meltdown if not a nuclear war ...
And I am ready for both. Are you?

Mr. "W f W W 3": how do you explain this consistent favoring of China over Russia by the "western ruling elites"? Read recent issues of Newsweek. Listen to that pontificating hawk McCain or Cheney, compare what they say about russia to anything they utter over china. In 2000 China joined WTO. 2001 -9 -11 we know what happened. Now seven years into this war on terror, China is the single greatest benefactor of all. And now the guns of Georgia, a new cold war against russia in the offing. By the time we are done with that round, China will own 80% of USA. Keep in mind also that McCain's advisor is a lobbyist for Sakashvili, whose army was supplied and wholy trained by the Israeli's, who remained conspicuously silent in the recent broohahas.
