Apparently their reforms have been a great success.

If Tawian was to provoke China by claiming Independence, the U.S. has an Obligation NOT to defend it.

In other words, maintain the status quo, Right?
Taiwan is a US strategic outpost right on the Chinese coast line. Thats the only reason the US are giving it the time of day.

He had communist intentions all along

True but he defeated Chiang and we weren't going to support that.

I think it depends on the country in question and how big the wealth gap is. I don't like communism either but it maybe a necessary evil in certain countries to correct an imbalance. Each country is evolving differently with diferent cultures history etc. Interesting how countrys such as China are now embracing capitalism but keeping the one party state

Sorry I don't agree, as far as I'm concerned Communism is wrong in any way possible. And they may be embracing aspects of capitalism but that one party still leads the world in human rights violations.


No I wasn't thinking of Israel. More like the Saudi Arabia which my country supply also and if thats not an oil deal of mega proportions I don't know what is! We give them Jet fighters and they give us oil.

Eh... you know what though? Half of them don't even know how to use the equipment lol.


Talking shop?

One word.... useless...

Capitalism isn't pefect either. Its responsible for extreme greed in your country and here to, to a lesser degree. Marxism is actually a civilised goal. Only problem is it doesn't work because it goes against human nature. But to pretend that Capitalism alone has all the answers is to deceive yourself in a major way!
Just so you know, I'm not a socialist either. But I do very much believe that there is a balance to be struck in any society. Otherwise you end up with civil unrest. As your Father found out!

I believe the US is in no state to start another offensive anywhere in the world, primarily because the war in iraq has and is still taking up most of the american resources, secondarily because the world in general is starting to get fed up with wars sparked by america and if another of such wars will occur americas supporters will be only those she has direct influenece on (israel and taiwan amongst them) and to finish any war in the east and china will eneter the conflict, now their navy and air force might not be top noch but russia will found them no doubt, and the chinese have a most fluorishing economy so theyll be able to afford the unaffordable, not to mention their enormus manpower and any aggresion on iran or syria will turn the whole muslim world against america, even the gulf states will lose interest, also an aggression on iran would theortically paralized a lot of countries and this whole load of countries will not like that, so i think american offensives are out of the question in the near future.

There will not be another war at all in the Balkan. Where is you evidence of this. Maybe you like NATO to blow your country up as well. Asks Serbs if it was nice for them
