5,000 years of history and they still can't design their own airplane? Can't produce enough food for their people?
.
Since you being a history buff, what has China given the world? other than cheap labor.

How about fireworks? The civil service. Mass production. Oh so much more than just tea.

It's a shame that US schools teach nothing at all about ancient China. It's as if nothing existed east of the Mesopotamian River. Everything I learned was after I got out of school. And it's a fascinating, rich history.

Your view of China is embarrassingly out of date. China has been feeding its people for the last forty years. Ever since Mao [whatever other problems he created] drove Chinese industrialization and self-sufficiency. Since Mao, Chinese leaders have increasingly opened to the rest of the world and their industry is highly competitive.

Ah yes fireworks, what would we do without fireworks. I have some every morning before I go to work,_:-)
.
modern day Mass Production was started by henry ford. their so called mass production was under chairman mao with his farming fuckery.
.
.
All History are fascinating depends on what facinates you.
.
For as long as China been around they are still a very backward country and only recently has started to modernized, in under
250 years of America's existance it has surpassed China's 50,000 years of existance.
.
They couldn't even defend themselves during WWII when Japan came knocking, hope you read..."Rape of Nanking", facinating stuff.
.
Flowke China and their history. Teach American kids about AMERICA and what America is all about, "Free" thinking.
.
it's the reason that we, "AMERICA" is ahead in just about everything.

They HAVE NOT.
.
Take a look at US Agriculture Exports to China, to include Meat, Why do you think China is investing Heavily in Argiculture in South America soybean production, a staple food in China.
.
Their industry is NOT highly competitive, that is FALSE, China offers HUGE incentives for Western Companies to build their factories in China, smart move by china because they have to keep their people working otherwise there will be civil unrest.
.
China is NOT what you think, they REFUSE to float their currency against the rest of the world because the game will be up for china.
.
There ISN'T ONE commodity that China sells to the WEST that WE can't do without, NOT ONE... We proved that to Japan during WWII.

China is a Godless communist ideology and close to falling. Their economy is based on lies and manipulating facts.
They are a real threat as far as military goes and we can not ignore this.

They aren't "communist" any more than Russia was. China has NEVER been anything but a dictatorship run by a meritocratic bureaucracy. Essentially Confucian in political philosophy. Mao's "little red book" was no more communist than Stalin was, even if they used the terminology.

You really need a PoliSci class in Comparative Government.

Oh I guess you know something different about Mao than the rest of us?

China is a cold hearted communist country with the standard communist corruption which you liberals ignore.

China even subscribes to killing babies because the cold cummies only allow 1 child per household . PURE communist and pure evil.

All of which has nothing what-so-ever to do with communisim. It's not that we don't know about the Soviet Union and China. It's that you don't know the proper vocabulary.

Communism is defined by "Das Capital" etc. i.e. Marxism.

What you are describing is the irony of the supposedly "communist" states. They embody precisely the very evils decried by Marx.

The Chinese have killed female babies for millennia !!! This is just the latest iteration of the phenomenon of unwanted children.
This is less common now that China is producing it's own contraceptives.

Do I know something that the "rest" don't know? Hell no.

I just know what you don't. The label is no guarantee what is in the can.

Again. take an actual Comparative Government or Political Philosophy course or two. Even the lower division undergrad classes make these distinctions clear.

You are tedious in your stubborn ignorance. REALLY tedious.

There has never been a truly communistic country. Russia and china were, at best, socialist, and really just different forms of economic totalitarianism. Americans adopted the word "communist" as a boogeyman term to describe virtually anyone who wasn't an ally or a nazi.
