Several months until China hosted the Olympics, the Western world cried about China’s “invasion” of Tibet. These people came out in protests and demanded the boycott of Chinese goods and cancellation of China’s Olympics.
And a week ago when the Indian Space Agency sent a rocket to the moon, many Westerners criticized their government for not making poverty reduction the first priority.
And recently the Western world has been crying about Global Warming. Not because America was the biggest pollutant for many years (that was fine with them), but because the Chinese and Indians have started to pollute (as a result of their growth).
Question: Why is the western world against their advancements? Why can’t they just admit that China and India are the next two future powers?
Adam, China will leave Tibet once you get your troops out of the Middle-East and other foreign countries. Deal? Didn’t think so.
As far as India goes, I fully support their technological advancements. Let me say this: when Europe was advancing, most of their population wasn’t exactly rich or even “middle-class.”
China and India will be major powers in the future. Some people have a problem facing it. There’s not a thing your big bro, the United States, can do about it, let alone the EU.
Adam, I never insulted you. I attacked your argument. You complain about our invasion of Tibet? Fine. How about you get your troops out of Iraq, Afghanistan, Jordan, Kuwait, and the rest of the world before complaining about our invasion? And if you’re an American, give the land to the natives and head back to Europe. You can’t simultaneously support your aggressive wars and complain about China’s invasion of Tibet.
I have no problem with the United States or the EU becoming our competitor. Competition is good and results in many breakthroughs. But do NOT tell us what to do. You’re NOT our adviser.
Kit Fang, America does not put money before the rights of the people? Say that to the Bush Administration and read a document called the Patriotic Act.
Kit Fang, one more thing – stop torturing people in Guantanamo Bay. Stop invading. Pay for the oil like China, India, and Russia are doing.
Iraq was none of your business. It never threatened you in ANY WAY yet you chose to invade it. So how can you justify the Iraq war yet be against our invasion of Tibet? Hypocrisy at its best.
China and India are a threat to the wests status in the west, its the same as France and Spain at the start of the 17th century and Britain and Germany at the end of the 19th century and start of 20th century, the scary thing is both these resulted in the biggest wars of their time.
