Maybe it was not a chance missed but chance abstained - OUT OF MORAL CONVICTION?
Not having murderous imperialist designs is not a chance missed for the morally sound, it is not a chance at all. Anglo murdered their neighbors in the world, now they say Chinese missed their chance to commit the 'easy' murder first, and follow by loot and pillage. Lol THAT IS aussie (or anglo) logic. That is also the same anglo murderous logic,(not- live and let live logic), the is reason behind anglo's tremendous success.
What, China not yet the top dog of the world to claim any moral conviction arguments? Only anglo are allowed to have false moral convictions? What did ya say: we need to win the next WW to qualify?
Do you know nothing of history? Do you honestly believe that China's massive numbers of murders, rapes, wars, oppressions both personal and political are erased because you say so?

Do you honestly believe that Chinese policy is to "live and let live"? I repeat: You cannot POSSIBLY be that stupid. Or can you? Tell the truth! Do you honestly believe that Chinese policy is to "live and let live"????

You're not too flash at logic yourself if you didn't understand what I was saying, and you evidently did not. Either that or your main priority is to troll for the sake of trolling. If that's the best you can do then you're not worth communicating with. I showed you more respect than you deserved when I put together a considered answer to your question that bordered on rudeness, and you responded by screwing it up.
To put it politely I've arranged a Taxidermist appointment for you. Be there!
The logic of logic is difficult logic, best to keep things simple.

Or was it the a-duh-lady-lily-ian punny name calling that put you off?(from the logic)?

Yeah I'm trolling you got that one right. But I mean no (great) harm. It's just religious and patriotic idiots that irk me every now and then. And they are fun to push around (mentally).

Taxidermist? LOL and that was POLITE? Aussie style I guess. Your respect was aussie style too? Akin to the respect Muslims give their women? Good thing I'm blind to respect (or honor pride glory...).

Any links to support that claim of massiveness, compared to anglo deeds? My proof:- I link to the Political map of the world as it stands today. Anglo in USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, UK,(Northern Ireland?)...., and local populations missing.

Substanceless Pointless Personal attack as a desperate dive for diversion. RIDICULOUS, pathetic (Lady lilian is much better).

Wow. Really? You haven't read any history? You really think that I am going to supply you with links for things that you must already know unless you live in a cave or are completely brainwashed by your government? Read a book. Any book on Chinese history. Really. Try it. You might learn something.

And you cannot get away with your deliberate obfuscation. Do you honestly believe that Chinese government policy is to "live and let live? Do you? Answer that question honestly and I will consider responding. If you do not or cannot answer that question I will assume that you are a 10 year old child full of his parent's and his government's hatred for all things not Chinese.

The Native Americans are 'missing'? On the contrary, they number in the millions ( http://www.infoplease.com/spot/aihmcensus1.ht... )

The NZ Maori population is 'missing'? They'd be interested to hear that - there are approx. 682,200 Maoris in NZ.

Australian aboriginals are 'missing' also? According to the latest stats, they number around 520000.

Some fair points. Admittedly, the world is a naughty place. Yes, you're smart. But, you Chinese, despite being under dictatorship, should try your hardest to more critically examine your own history too. Not just the approved stories. Like we Westerners do. China, a mighty tale of war, imperialism, subjugation, repression, carnage, over millenia. Not just the good stuff. Sure, China has much to be proud of too.

North America, Australia, NZ, UK/Ireland. Quite short imperialism history. You're saying that "Anglos" killed or subjugated more people in these regions, then the Han did expanding over the large area now known as China, over millenia ? What happened to all the ancient other cultures, non-Han peoples in what's now known as modern China ? Also, you could almost argue just in the 20th Century Chinese killed more of their own than Anglos ever did innvading and settling your mentioned Western countries, since the 15th Century! Anyway, I digress.

Speaking of maps. Take a look at modern China, particularly Manchuria. Then, thank the Americans other "Anglo" Westerners (plus the Soviets), for comprehensively decimating your Japanese overlords and liberating you from Japanese occupation.

http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/20TH.HTM (20th Century democide). I'm always staggered at the huge amount of death in China across the 20th Century, from both war and internal policies.

Same. Philistines to a great extent. Utterly brainwashed.

They're here too, and in spite of having 'traveled' a bit they maintain their bizarre prejudices based on little more than misinformation.

Lol You can assume anything about me, but I do not assume, and don't care much about your person at all when it comes to the points of the debate. You could claim to be a nobel winner or a 7 year old and I couldn't care less. You made a claim (of massiveness) and I asked you to prove it. And you retorted by more personal slander-...10 year old, pick up books ...blah blah. Lady, a pic of your ass (if massive enough) would've been a better argument.

Like I said a-the-lady-lilian is way better, might even agree with some of his/her/its crap (about immigration), If I wasn't so totally (disrespectfully) trolling.

1. Taxation Without Representation
To fund its military projects, and to assert its control over an increasingly independent group of colonies, Britain began to enforce painfully high taxes and tariffs on such goods as molasses, paper, sugar, and tea. With no representation in Parliament, American colonists who felt the taxes to be excessive had no recourse other than civil disobedience.

2. No Free Trade
During the 18th century, Britain was an empire in competition, sometimes militarily and sometimes economically, with other empires. In order to prevent other nations from benefitting from the North American colonial market, Britain brought its navy to bear against U.S. attempts to purchase non-British goods. Given the prohibitively high trade tarrifs enforced by Britain (see below), this policy was for all practical purposes unenforceable.

3. Unlimited Search and Seizure
To discourage smuggling, the British government awarded Writs of Assistance to British officers in the colonies. The Writs gave officers the power to search any residence or building, without warning or supervision, and to confiscate whatever they deemed to be smuggled or otherwise improperly obtained goods. This widely abused policy would ultimately inspire the Fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

4. Destruction of Colonial Government
The governments of the colonies, unrepresented in the British system and remote from the imperial legislative process, began to create their own elected bodies. The British government did not care for this idea, and took extra measures to see to it that local elected colonial government did not achieve autonomy, even with respect to matters that did not directly affect the larger British Empire.

5. Oppression of Political Protesters
As colonial protest against British government became more common, British colonial law enforcement authorities took measures to crack down on dissent. Among the more infamous examples of this were the 1769 imprisonment of Alexander McDougall (on "libel" charges) for his work To the Betrayed Inhabitants of the City and Colony of New York, and the 1770 Boston Massacre in which British troops fired on a crowd of colonial protesters, killing five

6. Immunity for Corrupt and Abusive British Officers
The Boston Massacre trial was an interesting spectacle. Eight British soldiers were accused, but defended by the future president John Adams, who won acquittal for six of the eight and the equivalent to a dishonorable discharge for the other two. Still, British leaders were concerned enough to pass a law mandating that any British officers accused of an offense be tried in England (where witnesses would be hard to find) rather than in the colonies.

7. Direct Control of the Criminal Justice System
Over a period of decades, as distrust of colonial authorities grew, the British government began to deny jury trials and place both verdicts and punishments in the hands of judges. As time wore on, the British government also took measures to ensure that those judges would be selected, paid, and supervised by British rather than colonial authorities.

8. Guilty by Parliament
Centralized British control of the criminal justice system, with no possibility of trial by jury, may seem to suggest that colonists were at the mercy of British officers--but the truth is that they always had been. By sheer fiat (through resolutions called Bills of Attainder), Parliament could declare any person to be "tainted," imprisoning or even executing the subject and confiscating all of his/her property without trial.
