Mr. Lee and then Dragon
Mr. Lee, a pragmatic perspective, much truth to be found within it. Thanks for the balance.|
"Why the Blacks?
Why bully the Mexicans?
What has Arabs done to Amerikans to become so bullied?
Why the blackmouthing of the British Commonwealth?
What was the reason of the Monroe doctrine>?"
Why the blacks "what"? Why as a people are they doing better than they ever have before. Why as a race do they have higher living standards in the United States, considering their large size, than in any other country on earth where they reside with such large numbers, not sure. Why is it still an issue? Psychology, my boy. Psychology.
Why bully the Mexicans? Bully how? Please do describe. Are we talking about previous wars where they were run by Austrian nobleman. Well, enough said. If current situation, the reality is they come and are, by and large doing better than most other minorities in the states. Most exploitation by my experience is within the group. One who has been here a long time receiving contracts for doing work and paying the others that he hires a pittance, often not at all.
What have Arabs done to Americans? Good question, from a philosophically and ethically grounded standpoint little. See Mr Lee's post above. What have the lower Mekong River inhabitants done to China to potentially stand to have their lifeblood ruined by oil spills on the Mekong. China see's it energy security dependent upon it. What have the Burmese done to have China support a junta that enforces slavery, mass deportation, and injustice upon its people? See, yet again, China's need for energy security and the fact it lacks the capability to secure its transport of oil throught the Malaca Straits. America supports Arab despots as the world economic system built from the rubble of WWII has benefited from the stability. Not just American economy, the world's.
Hmmmm....perhaps because European balance of power intrigue has created so many intractable problems as yet to be worked out to the desire of so many ethnicities wanting justice. Dissolution of Ottoman Empire, arbitrary creation of countries and borders. But, overall as far as leaving colonies in fair shape they did a much better job than the French. However, Euro politics/interests always prevailed leaving nagging problems for the worlds peoples today especially when consdiering issues such as sovreignty.
Ideological. Weakening power of Spanish Empire. Let them know that we were not interested in Euro nobility playing out further intrigues in the Western hemisphere as Spanish power waned. One would think that many in China would understand. Funny, I have a friend in Vietnam who is married to a Thai. They lived in China for a while. When in China people would get very angry at her for not answering questions. They thought she was being rude. She tried to explain that she was Thai and that she did not speak Chinese. But people wouldn't believe her as they explained everyone was Chinese in Asia but for the Japanese and Indians. Obivously the Thai lady was being stuck up. I suspect China, currently employing an interesting diplomatic discourse will find itself more Monroe minded when it feels it has the room to. Just ask the Cambodians and Vietnamese downriver of the coming pollution whose lives rest upon the mighty Mekong, as does 2% of the worlds daily catch in fish. Better would China build the fleet to secure the Straits against pirates but shows the largesse o great powers.
