    From the purely economic viewpoint , China has handed you your arse on a platter since joining the WTO - so who's really holding onto the fantasy ? They have created more millionares , billionares and gazillianares than America , in a very short space of time.......and there's more on the way.

    Considering they've already been around for thousands of years before Christ was born , that's quite a stupid question........but stupidity is your strong point.

    So, you are making the case that China is one of these paradises?

    Yes, it is an odd juxtaposition.

    They claim to stand for the expansion of civil liberties for all, but heap praise on some of the world's most oppressive rulers.


    Then they blame the CIA when people rise up.

    Evo Morales has been attacking Bolivia’s democracy for many years. Since coming to office in 2006, the socialist president has concentrated ever more authority in his own hands, denounced the opposition in aggressive terms, and placed loyalists in key institutions, from the country’s public broadcaster to its highest court.

    Like many populists on both the left and the right, Morales claimed to wield power in the name of the people. But after weeks of mass protests in La Paz and other Bolivian cities, and the rapid crumbling of his support both within law enforcement and his own political party, it was his loss of legitimacy among the majority of his own countrymen that forced Morales to resign yesterday.


    From east to west, and south to north, the dream of Latin America’s so-called pink wave has turned into a nightmare. And the many scholars, writers, and politicians who have for years sung the praises of aspiring dictators like Maduro and Morales should not be easily forgiven for sacrificing the rights of distant people on the altar of their rigid ideology.

    It's an open secret what the CIA does.....stop pretending that you don't know.
