The news says Air China is asking Boeing for compensation.

My question is:  Why ask?  Just Demand and let a Chinese court decide on how much to be paid by Boeing for both criminal and civil damages.

That's how an American Court decided on how much the German car company Volkswagen had to pay the U.S. for falsifying pollution data, and the Germans did pay up.

Surely then the Americans had established the precedent that both the criminal and civil cases could have their trial dates set up in China and the punitive amounts decided and enforced by a Chinese judge in a Chinese court for damages to Air China and the environment hazard created by Boeing due to blatant dishonesty on their part.

There is no need to fear the Americans or be polite and all that.

Just do as they did with the Germans.  No more, no less.  it will come to billions of U.S. dollars (before another Quantitative Easing).

In this case not only Air China is the victim but everyone who potentially could have been harmed by an unsafe plane rushed into the Chinese market by an unscrupulous U.S. air firm.

No one on the Chinese side should be hesitant or soft in demanding punitive damages and other compensations.

If they don't pay after a court decision is made on our side, U.S. property should be confiscated just like they would have done on German property if the Germans hadn't paid up for the U.S. court-ordained damages.

Remember: the Volkswagen pollution case didn't kill anybody.

The two Boeing 737 MAX 8 cases in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed hundreds of passengers in horrible nosediving crash scenarios that you wouldn't have wanted to happen to your worst enemies.

So accordingly the Chinese side should do exactly as the Americans did and make DEMANDS (not ask ask ask, DEMAND) for them to stand for trial in both criminal and civil courts and pay up -- just like the way they did with the Germans in the Volkswagen case.

If we soften up now nuclear war will be upon us.

I guarantee it.

They only respond to strength.

When former U.S. Secretary of State Dulles was around, the Americans withdrew their ships when they saw PLA speed boats dared to take on the much bigger KMT ships in the Taiwan Strait.

If we didn't fight in the Korean and Vietnam Wars China wouldn't have had peace for the next seventy years.

The only reason they are threatening the Iranians with aggressive naval and marine forces today and not DPRK is because Iran has no nuclear weapons.

Com'on Air China, be brave and do not be afraid of the Americans.

Ask ask ask for what?  

DEMAND, not ask.

Sue them in a Chinese court.

Looks like the three parts won't be seeing the light of day.

But in the infinitesimal chance they may appear, a small correction: USD300 Billion a year.

Writing this stuff is more strenuous than an ILO2900 grand-master chess finale.

Cheers (and happy huaqiao is back!)

I am so sorry to hear that, mark.

Did you make a copy?

Unless they are filled with state secrets, there's no reason for holding them up.
