Can you imagine American liberals saying this,
"WE NEED TO BOOST OUR DEFENSE"?

Instead, liberals are yelling,
WE NEED NO MILITARY
WE NEED NO POLICE FORCES
WE WANT MORE ILLEGAL MEXICANS, MORE MUSLIMS
WE WANT EVERYONE HOMOSEXUALIZED, FEMINIZED
WE NEED TO INCREASE WELFARE BENEFITS
WE NEED MORE CRIME
WE NEED TO TAKE FROM THE WORKING CLASS AND GIVE IT TO THE LAZY

Our military installations have been cut by 70%+ since Clinton.
Hussein Obama is making it 85%.

While this muslim terrorist in the White House is slashing our defenses, N.K., China, and Iran are boosting theirs.
They have the U.S.A. in their crosshairs.

Hussein is homosexualizing, feminizing and de-balling our military.

Hussein is the Enemy Within.

The US should urge its South Korean ally to reduce tension in the Korean peninsula by stopping military provocations.Only will this prevent brickering inter-Korean tensions for the past 1 year.

Domestic problems faced by the current South president Lee cannot be used as a pretext to provoke confontation with the North to win sympathy support. This applies to the North as well. Sucession issues are not viable reason for any conflict that only harmed the Korean people.

The US,South Korea and Japan should heed China's call to resume 6 party talks.Any refusal to heed China's advises is tantamount to continue escalation in the conflict becuase the US and Japan cannot solve this problem among themselves. China as a neighbour next to both Koreas are genuinely concerned and care for Korean people than the US who control the situation for its own strategic considerations.Japan the colonial power who ruled and mistreat the Korean people are no exception and the Korean people on both sides knew very well.

Hopefully there will be everlasting peace to the Korean peninusla where the Korean people can live happily with one another.

china and n korea are both a menace to the free world. If these two backward nations would join the peaceful free world we wouldn't be having this discussion. Instead they piss away huge proportions of their nations and ours wealth perpetuating this nonsense. they have no electricity, no gas, no cars and no hope. The UN is completely useless and must be abolished and replaced with an organization of free democracies.

Your views are flawed. In fact, China is a responsible member of the international community who represents peace,combats poverty and fights for human dignity in every country.In major international conference, China is always the country speaking up for peace as contrast to the United States who are always militarily menacing.Thus China held the moral high ground in contrast to the US.

China has uses her influence to seek a peaceful solution to the Korean conflict. China is genuinely concerned for the well-being of all Koreans on both sides as ultimately any war only bring deaths and destruction to Korean people themselves. This contrast deeply to some who incite provocations for their own benefits but to the detrimental of the Korean people themselves.

China should play an pro-active role in guiding America towards the road of peace and understanding. The US is now facing hardship economically as a result of wasting huge chunks of unnecessary expenditure perpetuating wars overseas.Such expenditures should be better spent on providing jobs for the American people.

The UN cannot be considered useless but it needs urgent revamp and change. It should have better independent power to stop conflicts rather than just lukewarm responses. The US invasion of Iraq despite opposition from members in the UN is a clear example that the UN should have more independent power to prevent wars from happening.

S. Korea Censured for Confrontation and War Moves
Pyongyang, January 4 (KCNA)--

Recently the Defense Ministry of south Korea issued a "whitepaper on defence" in which it stipulated that the "government and army in the north are the enemy of the south". Meanwhile the military bellicose forces conducted provocative naval firing exercises again in 23 spots of the East, West and South Seas of Korea with huge armed forces involved at the end of last year.

Commenting on the facts, a news analyst of Rodong Sinmun, a major newspaper of the DPRK, Tuesday says:

They are an open denial to the improvement of north-south relations and a vivid expression of the south Korean authorities' persistent design for invasion of the DPRK.

They are still running toward confrontation and war despite the protest of people at home and abroad. This is not a demonstration of the strong but a last-ditch effort of the weak.

Such behaviors show that they have already gone out of their mind and are preoccupied utterly by persecution mania.

The reality goes to prove that the south Korean bellicose forces are a dangerous group of traitors who might unhesitatingly provoke a war against the DPRK in a bid to prolong their remaining days.

They are advised to behave themselves, mindful that confrontation and war will bring earlier their own doom.

They will be held entirely accountable for the consequences to be entailed by their moves against the trend of times toward the improved north-south relations, peace and reunification.

Get serious. china is totally over-rated. I agree she's grown dramatically in recent years, but to say she is a a leader in the world to be emulated by America is laughable. The people in china save a lot of money because they expect the revolution to come anyday now. They buy US bonds because the people don't trust their own govt, and their govt own companies do it to keep their currency cheap in violation of international monetary law. china is a rogue nation that enables terrorists like iran and north korea.

Yes, everyone is serious on this. You conceded that China has grown dramatically and this show that you still have some sanity in your mind.

Seriously, China has contributed to the world in dramatic terms. It lead the world in combating poverty, invested in social infastructure in various countries and assist the US in combating terorism.She is the only power urging for peace in the Korean conflict when the US and her allies are inciting for war.The only differences China has with the US is her opposition to military violence to settle differences which is laudable. That is why China hold the moral high ground as compare to the US and China naturally should be a role model for the US govt to follow.

Your distorted view of China is a reflection of your lack of understanding of China and Asia in general. You must be fed with censored media with a bias attitude towards China and Asia in general.America , suffering from some mental illness always need a bogeyman to attack and so have to come up with national campaigns of "rogue nations, Axis of evil, cold war,.. that is why she always goes around invading countries and caused untold sufferings to people.

China on the other hand always seeks peaceful settlement. A Christian friend aptly sum up the diction.." China is God and the US is Satan."

Frankly no one disagreed.

Actions speak louder than your lies. The nobel peace prize winner couldn't accept because the communists have him under arrest. Ask the dalai lama if the chi coms spread peace. I read history and know America went to war with japan to save china, and our generousity was repaid with decades of war and deceit in korea, vietnam and now in commerce. No free press, religion, speech or elections. Sadly you won't agree china has grown because the world's largest consumer market is open to it, but china's disgusting manipulation of it's currency in direct violation of international monetary laws are necessary for their inferior workers to compete with Americans.

Yes..actions speaks louder than words and this is not more true than the different actions between the US and China. The US is a belligerent state always attacking other countries to settle differences while china settles differences through peaceful dialogues. This can be clearly seen by the contrasting actions between the 2 powers in the recent Korean conflict.China and North Korea for peace for all Korean people and the US and Japan for war and for Koreans to fight among themselves.

I cannot speaks on behalf of China on the issues you mentioned. It is very subjective as an angel seen by the US is not similarily shared by China. For eg, Christianity is seen as a force for peace and love by the US but not China who see it as a belligerent force for colonialism,conquest ,superstitions and brainwashing. So there is this stark differing opinions.

Yes, the US has fought Japan but to say the US fought Japan to "save' China is hilarious. Japan bombed the US's Pearl Harbour without provocations and killed American innocent civilians. The Japanese also killed British and Asians such as Koreans and Chinese in the most brutal manner.As such, the US cooperated with China to defeat the Japanese and as a result, the region was devoid of Japanese militarism and brutality.

Your views on the lack of reciprocality is flawed. Korea, Vietnam are colonial countries that fought for self-determination.China support the Vietnamese and Koreans to unify their own countries is morally courageous. It is only with the intrusion of the US that countries like Korea cannot be united.Vietnam fough the US to unify their countries with million of civilian casualties on their side.Who is belligerent? China support every country to self-determination while the US fought and divided up their country.

Yes. religion, freedom and democrcay are good human values and should be promoted.But each countries have to see which is the one that suited the most to their countries. The Israelies often violates human rights and killed innocent palestianians with US blessing and understanding.I have read the civilians casualties in Iraq and Afganhistan at the hands of US forces and so the US is not as benign as she likes to be.So there are some areas of circumstances that even the US did not put into practice like racial discrimination ,complete press freedom and expression.

Your views of Chinese as inferior also smacks of racism. Why are you so confident that the Chinese are inferior? I suspect you also feel the Koreans and other Asians as inferior too. Just because Asians does not followed the religion, cultures and political freedom of the US so they are inferior? The North Koreans, South Koreans, Chinese, Vietnamese,Japanese are just as efficient as the US workers.We have Samsung, Haier,Sony..so stop your racist blabbling here.

Asia have deep respect for the US. The Chinese have deep respect for the US too.But cultural differences meant a differing opinions of many issues. So there must be a genuine understanding of each other views and not forced it on others. There must be no evangelism of political values or racist attiyude towards Asians.

The Chinese have a wisdom from Confucius.

You need to read a history book. The US embargoed oil and other raw materials to japan after the rape of nanking. This and the fact that the europeans were embroiled with hitler was the reason japan attacked the US at Pearl Harbor. china is a slave state.

Yes, history has shown the US supported Japan and didn't mentioned anything about human rights when Japan went around murdering the Chinese and Korean people. It was only Japan attacked Pearl Harbour that the US started a war with Japan.It became the first country in this earth to use nuclear weapons against the Japanese in 1945.

Then she started to worry(using communism as an excuse) when Asian countries became independent like China while Korea sought to reunify their country. She pardon the war criminals in Japan and fought against Asian countries against their right to self-determination. The Korean war, Vietnam war were all consequences of this US actions.

The US always have a slavery state against others.

If this is the crap asians are learning in school, then war is imminent. America liberates countries. Here's a short list. Cuba, Phillipines, France(twice), Belgium (x2), Holland(x2), Italy, Poland(x2), Japan, S Korea, Taiwan, Kuwait, Iran, Grenada, etc.. We have only annexed parts of mexico after we beat her in a war she started. china on the other hand is conquering tibet, and is a menace to the entire world. Please provide a specific example of American imperialism before talking out of both sides of you wu mao-uth.

If this the crap people like you are learning in schools, then i pity you. American colonialism and agressions in Mexico,Philippines, Cuba,Japan and now Iraq and afghanistan contrast with a peaceful China which never invade and colonialised any country in the world. So Korea United is right to say china held the moral high ground compared to a very belligerent USA.Please provide a foreign country where China has colonised and ruled until today before you open up your chee bye mouth.

And this is not racist forum for you to run down all Asian people.

Then you need to look up the word imperialism in a dictionary you dunce. If we were imperialists those people in the countries you mention would not be free today. As a matter of fact those people are more free than the chi com people are. lol. I already mentioned Tibet, but I'll add vietnam, and Taiwan.
