And yet nothing for China, Russia, NK, or Iran. The silence is deafening.

Why the US need all those hundreds of military bases all around the globe?

About the only things that differentiate them is that Vietnam fears China considering them to be an adversary and Vietnam...

The most important differences are: 1) US doesn't consider Vietnam a threat to its global hegemony and 2) US can use Vietnam as a tool (like Japan, S. Korea, Australia, etc) against China.

Oh really? Which "large country with supposedly invincible armed forces" took on "Vietnam" and "didn't fare too well"? Cambodia under Pol Pot?

I think he was referring to USA! USA! USA!

I'm all for these countries tackling the pollutants they are poisoning themselves with (note the poor air quality in China's big cities)...

Not to be nit-picky, but why you failed to mention India when talking about poor air quality? It's way worse than China's.

Use your noodle.

Read my 2nd paragraph. You're basically agreeing with me. I was arguing against the post that said China shouldn't have existed.

That's comedy gold right there. So the protestors are fighting against democracy. Sure. Chinese democracy, where your 'elected' leader appoints himself president-for-life. That's not much of a democracy...

Someone need some reading comprehension lesson.

No, because the Internet wasn't widely available to the public then.

Never said did you posted online.

Why not give them the freedom to vote for leaders of their choice?

Did you also posted this question during all those years of British rule (aka Hong Kongers weren't allowed to vote for their governors)?

China is an appalling country, the world would be so much better if they didn't exist.

This comment ranks right up there in dumbness. I hope you mean the CCP and not China (a civilization having a few thousand years of history). If China didn't exists, almost all of the people populating present day HK, Taiwan, Macau, Singapore, etc wouldn't exist. Same for ethnic Chinese people in Thailand, Philippines, Vietnam, Peru, US, Indonesia, etc.

I have only one statement which is from New Hampshire's state motto and I really like this, "Live free or die".

@Cliffy - I highly doubt if you and your loved ones were given the choice: Live in China (Vietnam, Cuba, etc) or die, that you would choose death for all.

It's much easier to be a keyboard warrior.

Another day, another shooting in the United States of America ... when will this madness end?

That's like asking how many licks does it take to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop? Answer: The world may never know.

China has never claimed any of these islands that ate many thousands of miles from mainland US. All these have been claimed by the US!

Agree. good point. You'll get down-voted by the usual group of US cheerleaders here, tho.

Shocking photos show police in riot gear tackling protesters to the ground amid mass demonstrations in the city. Some protestors were smashed on the head with police batons.

You should see the violence done to Yellow Vest protesters in France. The HK police acted mildly by comparison.

Singapore does not have free speech. Why don't these tech companies slag off China, which is far worse?

Or Russia? But anyway, China doesn't pretend or say they're a democracy, tho?

So China's only how many decades late to the party?

At least they're at the party, right? About 99% of other countries are beyond late.

It would be interesting to read about accidents had by Chinese and Russian navies for comparison. But given both nations are run by totalitarian regimes that control their media it's probably impossible to get accurate - and honest - information.

Also, would be interesting to read about accidents had by Angolan, Zimbabwean, Gabonese armed forces for further comparison.

So you're looking forward to a time when the world's supreme economic leader is a -- Communist dictatorship? Well, I'm not. I guess I'm strange that way.

Probably would be less hostilities than now. I think the US has been involved in more wars, regime changes, invasions, etc in the past 100 yrs or so than any other country.

The money can go back and rebuild Africa 

Can any amount of money bring that continent in line with the other continents? About 60-70 years ago, South Korea & Singapore were poorer than most African countries. Both SK & SGP has progressed tremendously, since then.
