Given your wu mao dang mentality, I don't doubt that is the message you were immersed in.
we lived our history.
You were in Tibet in 1959?

You were around when Mao began the Great Leap Forward?

You were at Tiananmen Square?

Please regale us with that firsthand experience!
only you need a book to tell our history, and apperently, you perfer those written by losers.
No wonder you are a loser.
Aww, Hop Sing, are you mad because reality just made you look stupid again?

The CCP omits the details I mentioned because they do not want their citizens to know how vicious their leadership is.

The state censors your internet service because they don't want you to learn the things that they took pains to erase.

How's that air quality in Beijing? It must be really bad because your not very coherent.

1) Satellite photos show things differently...just like your history books.

2) The article 'an' should not be used in your second sentence. If you are a woman, the appropriate word to employ is 'a'.

3) You third sentence is missing a verb and logic. Were you trying to say, "I don't imagine there is filth in cities full of homeless people like we have here in China."?

4) I realize that you get much of your information from censored sources and our cinema. Still, it is funny that you don't know what a 'prom' queen is. Watching to much porn will do that to you, Hop Sing.

The wu mao dang are not as sharp as they once were.

I had to smile at the recent Chinese led hacking of the NY Times. China was incensed that their leaders were exposed for hiding piles of cash abroad. They chose to unleash a cyber attack as retribution for telling the truth.

Is it any wonder why they forbid the western media from seeing what is happening in Tibet?

Clear skies do not mitigate air quality, by the way. I know that your government tells you otherwise but wear a mask.

Sure you do. I have been to Beijing a dozen times in the last five years and a few dozen over my lifetime. I know better that what you purport.

I realize that your news is censored. However, last week, the NY Times was hit by a cyber attack from China. It was in response to a series of stories detailing the CCP leaders and families accumulating untold wealth and hiding it overseas.

Here is a link to the story.

Let me know if you cannot read it. I will happily copy it and paste the details so you can learn the truth.

http://www.abs-cbnnews.com/business/02/12/13/...

Japanese businessmen believe the Philippines is a top investment destination in Asia, according to a survey by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) Manila.

JETRO Manila, a semi-governmental agency that promotes business between the Philippines and Japan, said the results of the latest survey showed the Philippines is a "desirable" investment and business destination for Japanese companies as compared to other Asian countries.

The survey was conducted from October to November 2012 on Japanese-affiliated companies in Asia and Oceania.

dude why are you going over this again?
I really dont care how Filipinos live.. but when they start talking about others like blaming China for their lot in life, thats when I pipe in... thats when I start to take issue...pot calling the kettle black kind of thing
just like I really dont care what the hell you Americans are doing in Afghanistan even though 10 years after your invasion... 70% of the women in Afghan Prisons are their for moral crimes,
what the fcuk are you doing in there? especially now that you are in talks with the Taliban...
or like how your military is supporting a incursion into Mali by the French...now pretending the guys who were the good guys in the Libyan uprising are now the bad guys in the Mali uprising
I wouldnt be bringing it up... but then it is the pot calling the kettle black kind of thing
but now you are talking Tibet when the average Tibetan lived to the ripe old age of 35 and the Monks who were land owners, slave owners... and got to rape 9 year old boys...
bottom line is this... the CIA trained chieftains and sons of chieftains to go back into Tibet... to raise up the common folk for insurrection.... 90% of those men were never heard from again...
it is well documented that the Tibetans the the common folk did not rise up...probably got tired of being slaves, living to 35 and having their young boys raped
are the Chinese a better option... to me it dosent matter is is their business...
people want to stone a person to death... I say all the power to them it is their country their customs
Tibetans want to be free? they can go to India where the Dalai Lama is repressing the Dorje Shugden
practice in his religion these days....
Korean Credit Rating Agency Upgrades Outlook for Philippine Investments

http://www.mb.com.ph/articles/393760/korean-c...

Economic managers on Tuesday welcomed the upgrade on the Philippines’ rating outlook by a Korean-based credit rating agency saying that this will increase the economy’s attractiveness to foreign investors.

The credit rating agency does not see “significant” inflation pressures in the near term due to strong peso and the “stagnant global demands and decreasing food and oil prices.”

LOL every nation knows THAT China is backing up N.KORS Nuclear Testing.....common sense

CHINA is an EVIL nation like North Korea. Birds with the same feather flock together lmao.

Now u just gave another sign for the US to pivot more to ASIA. lol

You communists boast a lot. You can not even take back TAIWAN nor grab spratlys and senkakus BECAUSE of SUPER POWER AMERICA.

China has been surrounded from S. Korea to Singapore.

S. Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and Big ASEAN 6 (Phil, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore) lands are natural BARRIERS to CHINA'S Navy.

Their NAVY plus India, Australia, and New Zealands' will help US and NATO lot in RESTRAINING CHINA.

Your FIRST ISLAND CHAIN goal WILL NOT BE MET.

The US and its ALLIES in the Region + NATO will surely CONTAIN CHINA

The ASEAN BIG 6 are becoming ECONOMIC POWERS. THAT MEANS HIGHER DEFENSE BUDGET.

ASEAN BIG 6 will be a great threat to CHINA in the FUTURE together with Japan,S.Kor, INDIA, Australia, New Zealand, US and NATO as i've mentioned earlier.

For Japanese companies, PH is 'most profitable' in Asia
ABS-CBNnews.com
Posted at 02/12/2013 5:48 PM | Updated as of 02/13/2013
MANILA, Philippines - Japanese businessmen believe the Philippines is a top investment destination in Asia, according to a survey by the Japan External Trade Organization (JETRO) Manila.
JETRO Manila, a semi-governmental agency that promotes business between the Philippines and Japan, said the results of the latest survey showed the Philippines is a "desirable" investment and business destination for Japanese companies as compared to other Asian countries.
The survey was conducted from October to November 2012 on Japanese-affiliated companies in Asia and Oceania.
Japanese companies see the Philippines and Indonesia as the "most profitable", according to the survey. Philippines and Indonesia beat competitors in all industries with 71.9% and 74.4% profitability, respectively.
"This result came about specifically because of the very promising performance of the Philippines in export oriented business with a 72.4% profit as oppose to China in 5th place with a 54.6% profit and India at last with 55.3% revenue," JETRO Manila said.
When it comes to good management, the survey showed the Philippines had the least difficulty when it comes to recruiting general staff, with a 4.3% rating. This was followed by Indonesia with 6.8% and Vietnam at third with 13.8%.
China was seen as the most difficult with a 35.5% rating, due to the strict working environment compared to other countries.
The Philippines also had the least number of strikes and lockouts, with only 2 in 2011. This is compared to Vietnam with 857, and India with 389 in the same year.
The same survey showed most Japanese firms found Thailand to be the least troublesome when it comes to customs and administrative procedures. Surprisingly, the Philippines came in second.
"PEZA on the other hand, has played a vital role in providing assistance and smooth procedure in doing business resulting to the good ratings by the Japanese respondent companies in the Philippines," JETRO Manila said.
Cheap labor
JETRO Manila noted the survey highlights the Philippines' competitiveness when it comes to salaries. The Philippines' annual salary of $4,581 for manufacturing staff is neither too low or too high compared to Asian neighbors. China had the highest with $6,734, while Vietnam had the lowest with$2,602.
However, manufacturing engineers and managers in the Philippines and Vietnam get the lowest salaries in the region.
Manufacturing engineers in the, Philippines and Vietnam receive an annual salary of $7,636 and $5,441 respectively. Manufacturing managers in the Philippines and Vietnam get $17,498 and $12,245 respectively. Malaysia had the highest salary for both engineer and manager with $14,451 and $30,083 respectively.
For non-manufacturing managers, Philippines and Vietnam also had the lowest annual salaries with $20,169 and $16,422 respectively.
Challenges
According to the survey, Japanese businessmen see the Philippines with the least challenges.
But that doesn't mean there are no challenges. One of the biggest challenges for Japanese firms is the difficulty in local procurement of raw materials and parts. Another challenge is the Filipinos' perception of going abroad to work than stay in the Philippines.
"This still is a good performance for the Philippines as Japanese businesses in other countries had to deal with a lot more challenges such as wage increase and time consuming administrative procedures," JETRO Manila said.
PH ranks last?
Despite citing the advantages of the Philippines, Japanese businessmen still ranked the country last for its expansion plans.

continuation-

"Philippines landed on the last rank with 48.2% rating for expansion plan, while India, Indonesia, and Vietnam emerges as the target domestic markets with 83.6%, 77.3% and 65.9% respectively," JETRO Manila said.
Many Japanese businessmen are looking to expand abroad due to difficulties in operating in Japan. Among the factors cited were the strong yen, high rate of corporate tax and shortage of electricity.

The Philippines is not competing to any country. It is a small country, however, its economy is booming, surpassing some MUCH BIGGER nations.
