Old Chinese proverb said" if there are water, there will be fish. If there are land, there will be Chinese", especially in S,. E Asia. These ethnic Chinese escaped China for business opportunity and freedom from homeland long ago. Sometime, they were called the Jews of Asia. They tend to keep their identities, cultural heritages, and support communist China at the same time. They have both "Chinese Buddha" and " Mao Tse Tong" pictures on the wall. Beijing has no problem in supporting dictators across the globe, including Burma and would exploit these ethnic Chinese for their own advantages.
