"That's one small step for stolen technology, one giant leap for a communist moon"..

Where did the US get most of its early space techs from?

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.

Russia is always the bad guy but the U.S. is always the good guy, LOL.

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.

No comments because this incident didn't happen in the U.S.?

Besides the US, any article about China, especially negative ones, will also got tons of comments.

1/6 of the world lives in India. 

But China has a higher population, yet foreign female tourists/expats generally felt safer there than in India.

They are proven talented actors and actresses that I'd prefer to watch regardless of what race a role is supposed to be.

If Asian/Asian-Americans actors/actresses are not given opportunities to even play Asian/Asian-American characters, then how would they ever develop into "proven talented actors and actresses"?

Posted in: In rare bipartisan display, U.S. Democrats back Trump on China trade probe See in context

With one enormous difference. China is an authoritarian dictatorship with aspirations of military and territorial expansion and a declared intent to re-write the post WWII world order. They have openly declared an all-fronts war in which economics, trade, technology transfers, everything is all part of advancing their goal of returning China to it's ancient glory of thousands of years ago.

Doubt it. The US wasn't all that nice too when it was doing the same to Britain. Slavery, discrimination (of blacks, browns, yellows, etc), genocide (Native Americans) happened. Took quite a long while for these wrongs to be righted. It also had the Monroe Doctrine.

China has a pattern. They have been following it.

It's the same pattern the US did to Britain. Same pattern Japan did to US. Same pattern S. Korea did to Japan.

Yup...all those sick Western expats exploiting Asian domestic workers.

"Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Merry Christmas Mr Lawrence" don't come close to telling the story. An accurate production would be too violent and bloody even by today's standards.

Couldn't be as violent and/or bloody as any production of the Rape of Nanking right? Yeah, I doubt it would be.

28 wounded, none seriously. what were they shooting with, bb guns?

It was a rap concert, so they likely held their guns side grip.

The biggest problem with most Chinese copies whether they are phones, buildings, or toys is that they are putting consumers at risk all over the world.

Have ZTE and OnePlus phones. Have Lenovo laptop. All great and working nicely.

But, as they say, haters gonna hate.

Just like Chinatown, Kalais and the muslims town in the UK, places that wont integrate with the surrounding towns.

Just because there are Chinatowns, doesn't mean all Chinese immigrants live there and won't integrate. Likely most of the residents there are recent immigrants. 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc generation ones are likely well integrated and disbursed.

If he wasn't 'identified' that means he was either black, latino, or arab. If he had been white it would be in the news everywhere.

What if he was Asian (East/Southeast)?

He is just one terrorist suspect on UK's terror list of 3,000 or so. Many, many have similar stories. And as we know now, there are many dangerous Muslims who arent even on that list. So how long should that list really be?

Agree. Have not read about any Chinese, Swiss, Finish, Japanese or Singaporean terrorist making trouble in the UK.

Posted in: China overtakes Japan on S Koreans' worst countries list See in context

I have always thought Japan and South Korea have much more to gain by being closer. There is history yes but they are more similar than either are to China.

I would say all 3 have lots of similarities, as both SK and Jpn borrowed a lot from Chinese culture over the past 2000+ years.

Posted in: British police arrest seven in raids over deadly Westminster attack See in context

I guess we are just supposed to not care who actually did this, what their name is or where they are from. I have seen no update to the story since I saw a description of a 40s Asian burly guy with a beard. I wonder when we will hear how police have enough evidence to arrest 6 additional people already and what their personal details are. Guess just doesn't matter.

Hope people outside UK don't equate Asian with Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Singaporean, Taiwanese, etc.

Aren't Ukrainians and Russians pretty much exactly the same? I've met both, I didn't see any difference.

Could be said of the same about Mainland Chinese, Taiwanese & Hong Kongers.

Posted in: Diversity in tech: Lots of attention, little progress See in context

Seems like diversity only matters when only blacks are underrepresented - e.g. last year's Academy (Oscar) Award nominees. This year no uproar, as many black actors/actresses are nominated. Can't say the same for Asian-Americans ones, though.

to divert the Chinese people's attention away from the fact that their government don't know what the hell they are doing - about anything

I guess lifting the most amount of people out of poverty in the history of humankind is an example of not knowing "what the hell they are doing"? Wigga, please!

continue to push the narrative that blacks are incapable of hate crimes.

Don't tell Asian-Americans this. In cities like Philadelphia, there has been a huge surge of black on Asian crimes. Rarely any Asian on black crimes, tho.

I wonder what America's reaction would be if Syria and Russia were arming and funding militia groups in America opposed to the federal government?

Same response as if China or Russia were to sail a navy battle group in the west coast of US. Even in international waters, the it's a no-no, since only the US can sail it's warships anywhere in the world.
