 Do you believe China is a threat or a menace? ;)

Well, look what humans have done ever since history began:  ran around
raping and killing and stealing and taking over other countries.  Who
hasn't done it?  Only the powerless.  Every country, Britain, USA, FRance,
Netherlands, etc. has done these things, enslaving people if they need
hands.  Why should China be any different?  Of course they are a threat to
take over.  I just hope they don't go running around the world starting
stupid wars like we have done. (A lot of what they have done is helping
people, like building bridges for countries in Africa - long term thinking,

 Do you know that Baghdad still doesn't have full electricity because of
the 'shock and awe' done when we invaded?  We just leave a mess behind for
someone else to deal with, as we are moving on to other stupid engagements
and piling up more debt from military actions.  Just what have we gained
from the wars since before Vietnam?  Debt, mostly.  No friends, though some
have forgiven us and now we trade with them.
