    •  The idea of China as a friend (0+ / 0-)

      is far from proven.

      Sometimes nations DO fight. I don't see too many comments indicating anyone wants that to happen.

      •  Are we enemies? (0+ / 0-)

        Or?

        There is a fair amount of jingoism on display here which is not surprising.

        One thing I have learned on Daily Kos is American Liberals are fairly polarized on the issues of China and there doesn't seem to be much middle ground because the discussion tends to escalate to demonization from one side and unqualified defense on the other.

        But the relationship of our countries is actually very close in some ways importiant to both and is certianly one of the most importiant to the world, so it would be wise to talk substance more and tone down the retoric.

        That is why I have repeatadly questioned people knowledge of actual Chinese policy and conditions in the face of some very broad and unqualified statements.

        And what I find is no substantial response from people making some of the most provocative claims.

        Well, that is the Internet. (;-)

        So, what do you think of the 12th 5 year plan released this week verses some of the issues discussed here?
