Are people trying to rewrite history by claiming that the opium trade may never had happened?
Who is making these false claim?

A heartfelt thank you to whampoa who bothered to list and quoted my replies to the question of the " Opium Wars ". If this does not convince the bleaters that they are wrong, nothing will ...


You’re most welcome, Mengzhi.

I am just doing a bit of CD community work here, which I enjoy very much.

I will be waiting for Bulldog's response to my post #60

I will also be waiting for Mencius's response to my post #61

..... after the two came with all the excitement to “talk” to me.

I wonder where are they now?

So tmphgt says attentive readers will know that he never justified the Opium Wars?

So then why did he call into doubt the immorality of the Opium Wars by calling that an "opinion"?

Alas, another person who feels the urge to lash out as soon as he feels the ground underneath him/her is falling away.  He is losing creditability... assuming he had some to start off with.


Since you ARE an American I would have hoped that your comprehension skills would be quite good.

Observe your own "lashing" out with cheap insults - where is your great debate?

You know full well that I was dissecting your suitably sensationalised opening statement. You have refused to elaborate on your "opinion" so I dug around for some links - if you have any then you could have easily posted them too. Of course, if you think that sweeping statements cannot be questioned or examined then you will struggle in the big wide World.

Of course, your answer to all of this is the typical pathetic little insults and attacks favoured by the likes of whampy, mengzhi and jetsam. Go on, try to rise above their little games ..... unless you really want to be associated with their breed of hatred and xenophobia.

Of course not chang and I really hope you can see that.

If someone opens a thread with their own opinion - do you think others have a right to ask for more or to dig a bit deeper?

Your threads usually have links - I commend that approach. It enables others to do some background reading: certainly more educational than the "opinions" of whampy, mengzhi and jetsam. Who do you want your history lessons from: those with a myopic hatred or someone with a balanced view?
