Palin is an entertainer and celebrity with charisma...which is why she might just make a strong candidate for United States President.

Perhaps she is unaware that her own country is the largest stockpiler of ballistic missiles, submarines and "new-age ultramodern aircraft". But of course there are different rules for America, aren't there?

By the way, what is a "new-age" aircraft? Does it run on crystals?

China always shouting that all their weapons are for SELF DEFENCE. BULL Shhht.

US and Russia made weapons to protect an ideology. Did not tell lies like China does.

China is a real attacker after pretending as the best friend. They did it to India. They will do the same to all other Asian countires. Be aware of those greedy govt in china which give no freedom to own people.

It must be a real treat for Palin - traveling abroad, that is.

China did not force Americans to buy opium and attack it and grab its territories (not only Hong Kong but concessions in "treaty ports" like Swatow, Amoy, Shanghai, Tsingtao, Tientsin, etc. -- where extraterritorial sovereignty applied -- when it refused. Nor did its troops loot Buckingham Palace or the Louvre museum. Actually they would have to try pretty hard, for about 100 years, to treat the Western powers the way it was treated. China's been harder on its own people, particularly non-Han minorities, than it has on neighboring countries.

@Realmind China needs to do whats in its interest.And all this talk of freedom is funny because you know what if H am to compare the harm done by the west to that of the Chinese,I will say those of China are insignificant.

China will rise and rise because it did not put its bread in one basket.

Ask a Tibetan or Korean what they think about China's land grabs over the millenia. They too have suffered the wrath and vengeance normally meted out to China's own people and would be the first to echo Palin's questioning of the one party dictatorship's intentions now that it is on the cusp of challenging US hegemony.

And while you're at it, as a Mongolian, a Manchu and a Russian too. "Grab what you can" seems to be the way things worked over the millennia and China wasn't the only one that did it.

@ dtumfuo. Invation, Opium, blah , blah, same old puppet stories. These stories may work with poor chinese people who are totally blacked out by the govt.( No free Internet access, or No freedom to know the world). Spoon feeded knowledge about China, and other countries in the world. Hello Chinese cyber spies better you work for own people to get free news from ALL the world, with out govt restrictions. Whatever the way you try China will rise but IT WILL COLLAPSE on the heads of all those evil leaders.

Hey otumfuo - Germany rose economically also under the leadership of Adolf Hitler, but he was still evil and his regime finally fell. The same will happen to China. You can't put a price on human life. Chinese people deserve to live in a free and just society!

realmind: "China always shouting that all their weapons are for SELF DEFENCE. BULL Shhht."

And whom is China attacking at present with their 'new-age' weapons? I can name at least three countries the US is attacking -- with two of them involving the US pressing their 'ideals' on them.

Once again, the dolt opens her mouth and the rest of us sit back and laugh.

If one looks at history, India can win if they can have a strong defense, but ride up the economic elevator w/ the PRC. An adversarial relationship would only weaken both parties. U.S. politician Sarah Palin is advocating US Foreign Policy, as she should.

I'm amazed she could fit all of that information on her palm.

Palin, Lincoln is the absolute antithesis of that poison the Republican Party Tea Party-wing that you represent espouses. I'd like to hear one decision Lincoln made, one principle he stood for, that you can bring into a modern scenario and be on record supporting. If Lincoln were alive today, he would find no place in your party and no similarity with your aims.

I'm not so sure about that.

We the people are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts, not to overthrow the Constitution but to overthrow the men who pervert the Constitution.

Abraham Lincoln

Sounds pretty in line with the Tea Party general principals if you ask me.

We've got a cowboy as the last President, would we get a housewife ? ( nothing against housewives personally )

Netrek - So America is a free and just country ?well,as a non American I dont see it so.Do you honestly think America will be #1 forever? As you want the Chinese to fall,they also want America to fall.But with the current American economy and the current state of geo-politics ,I bet China stands to win.

@Realmind Should I also call you an American cyber spy?I am no chinese and eventhough their government may be bad in some ways,history and politics have taught me that the most evil and worst presidents have come from America. Anyway,does knowing the news put bread on the table and if there are any people uninformed about the world I will say,they are American.Ask an average American a simple question about the world and you will be surprised at the answer

Great Palin! Now, how many countries have China attacked since WWII, and how many countries have attacked other countries since that period? I believe she has diarrhea of the mouth. She's saying the US Pres should be doing more to support the Arab Protesters and at the same time she's going to meet with Netanyahu in Israel - come on - give me a break! The west controls approx 12% of the world's population regardless of its over 150 countries diplomatic ties. OMG, China is building up such a military force - how can that be on less than $1 billion dollars, while the US exceeds $500 billion dollars on its defense. The leadership in China has constantly stated it will not interfere in the internal affairs of a sovereign nation but it will defend its own region. So far, it has stayed true with its comments. I suggest those who constantly criticize China should watch the Chinese Channel in their foreign language and get a better understanding of what is taking place in China. I also believe India and China are developing better relations and hopefully with more of the Asean countries.

Why is the Liberal press so fascinated by Sarah Palin? How about a story on Dennis Kucinich?

Palin: "Too often, Republicans, I don't know, they kind of have the fighting instinct of sheep."

Har!

Reporters who had been assured access were barred at the last minute.

Wow; big surprise there! She can't handle the pressure. She will never be able to answer questions on the fly.

Good question. Let me think. India, Russia, South Korea. Tibet, which it has illegally occupied. Thats not counting all the border disputes where it has committed acts of armed aggression. Against Vietnam for example. Much less the threat hanging over Taiwan. No, China isn't exactly a model of tolerance and pacifism.

Wow; big surprise there! She can't handle the pressure. She will never be able to answer questions on the fly.

Hmm, Obama has done this how often? Ah wait, bad analogy, Obama's incompetent, probably shouldn't use him for comparison.

China's great leap in military spending was definately 'JUSTIFIED' and needed URGENTLY. America is the nation that possessing great hostility agianst China and Chinese people, they have been waging nuclear wars against China since 1951, remember then US general Douglas MacArthur claimed, he wants to dump 50 nuclear warheads all over China after his defeated in North Korea! America was a nation always holding 'prejudices' against chinese, since 1882-1942, the United States has a law known as the 'Chinese exclusion Act' which was 'ethnically discriminating' Chinese people entering America, this act was a law that means it was a state's policy! At present the US has deployed B-2 stealth bombers in Guam that has an objective to throw out nuclear attacks over Chinese cities and their navy vessels frequently visting Hong Kong as a part of their'gunboat policy',America has never apology for the EP3 incident that killed a Chinese pilot over south China sea...etc. Why did China's increase spending was not 'justified'? Is only for those who against and jealous China's recent suceess only, is that simple!

Obama never assured reporters access then barred them at the last minute. As usual Molenir does not know what the hell he is talking about. As far as Obama being incompetent; well look at the source once again.

Chinese citizens and Indian citizens ,have to make more people to people contact ,with each other. China and India,need each other more than ever.

Chinese huge goodies productions have also helped,India's high economic growth.

China needs Indian Market,for its Sales. Indian people have expertise,in various fields which Chinese-Indian Joint Ventures can implement.

China financing can go a long way to develop economic sucess of India.

Economic Sucess of India and China,is now creating a dynamic economy of 15 trillions in the 2 Nations. This is huge sucess for both Nations in 2010s. The can double this 30 trillion,in coming decades,if they work at it.

Chinese are now learning english rapidly,they can join in with Indians who speak english,to make economic progress and build bridges to prosperity .

Nobody is listening to Palin except the news media. She is already out of the group as potential candidates for president. Good show, but no solutions.

I doubt KUCINICH sells papers as much as PALIN brilliantly does.

0 ( +0 / -0 )

Mrs PALIN's speech was more focused on energy security than Chinese military build-up. Naturally, newspapers would prefer to quote what sells.

From Hot Air blog:

Ms. Palin’s speech at a conference organized by the media group India Today touched on many subjects, including her sympathy with the people of Japan and their “humble cooperative spirit,” the dangers of a green-energy policy and her children texting her news of a moose in the yard of her Alaska home. Ms. Palin made numerous references to America’s entrepreneurial and pioneering spirit, and India’s unlocking of the same to become a vibrant global giant. Together, she said, the two countries will lead the world in the 21st century. “There is no natural limit for United States and India relations,” she said. India is the second-fastest growing major economy in the world after China, but is still hobbled by extreme poverty, inefficient infrastructure and political corruption. … A “secure, stable supply of fuel is key to a prosperous America,” she said. “My vision of a free and prosperous America has much to do with energy.” But that won’t come from green energy, she said, which has destroyed thousands of jobs in Scotland and England and helped create a massive debt in Spain. America should “capitalize on our own resources right there on our doorsteps,” she said, by tapping into billions of barrels of oil that are “warehoused” in Alaska.

And from India she goes to Israel.This woman is stealing President Obama's thunder.I wish HIllary Clinton were not jumping the floundering ship of state.Among Democrats she is about the only one with enough charisma to take on The Quitter.
