The Great Britain was indeed the SUPERPOWER in the 1800's.

in 2013 it is time for folk to question how their leaders work it is the duty of everyone to make sure that war is not entered into in their name and to call for global co operation to end poverty in the world it is the job of everyone not just a minority of leaders China is a vast nation their only fault is the leaders must not go on opposing any who question how they rule when that is unfair towards groups of folk within China or its territory.

Canada Border Services Agency data analyzed by CBC News shows China was the largest single source of drugs seized between 2007 and 2012, most of it in the form of substances often referred to as date rape drugs.

The bulk of the $1.5 billion total of drugs seized from China was from a single bust in Montreal in 2009 that intercepted a shipment of GHB, known commonly as a date rape drug, valued at $1.4 billion.

Ketamine, another hallucinogen often used as a date rape drug, also figures prominently in drug busts from China, according to analysis by CBC News Network's Power & Politics of CBSA data obtained through the Access to Information Act.

Although the number of seizures of drugs from China — 1,879 over the six years — is lower than some other countries, China is becoming a real concern, said the RCMP's Ken Cornell, who heads one of the force’s anti-drug smuggling divisions.

Top 5 drug sources

Number of seizures and total value, 2007-12:
China: 1,879,$1.5B.
Germany: 348,$1.4B.
U.S.: 12,330,$539.4M.
Pakistan: 1,160,$437.7M.
Unknown: 13,337,$277.3M.

That kind of HOSTAGE policy will never work in China, It can only work in the continents of Africa and South America. Ooooops, my bad! It didn't even work in Africa nor South America either. Get a grib and beg China to allow the Brit to be the Chinese Coolie is more like it. This is not the 16s or 17s centuries, boy. Get with the program or go HOME.

I know, right!! China should learn from the Master, the Brit, that is. Enslave the whole world, and kill those who defy it. It is good for human rights! Look how the Brit got away with it!! In 100 years, the China can preach to the world of their lack of human rights. That way, China then will smell like ROSE. Don't you agree?
