  1. #2 The manpads probably came from those looted in Libya.

    #4 As the worlds economy weakens China faces more and more ethnic tensions, what you have to remember about China (it isn’t often mentioned) is that China is a few modern cities surrounded by a third world country. Despite what they are saying they don’t have enough internal wealth to keep their economy going, they depend on exports and when we stop importing they stop exporting and start facing massive economic problems.

  2. #2 Yes, Richard is correct.

    #4 Screw the Chinese. Well I would like to in a political sense. I have a dog in the fight.

    G D stupid M Fers. “Be careful what you wish for” – ancient Chinese proverb.
