The underlying issue facing China is the need to have checks and balances in its legal and financial systems.  The lack of accountability and morality has already taken a toll on the ordinarly folk, who have been marginalized in Chinese society as the wealthy and better-connected mooch on each other or live off special privileges.

  Entitlements and allowances meted out to the vested interests or interest groups have reached unprecedented levels  in Chinese officialdom, with more and more  youngsters jostling to take up the sinesures through back-room deals and gift-giving.

  At the same time, the definiton of nationalism has been distorted by some loopy nationalists who seem to be  trying to hornswoggle the public by telling them that the recognization of pluralism and civil liberties  is a deviation of Chinese traditional values.  Basically, the hiddden message is:  you are flouting Maoism when you embrace universal rights.

  That's where the shoe pinches. The traditionalists or right-wing conservatives still want to take China back to the old times, when Maoism was still the order of the day and the poor were weaned on such thinking . On the other hand, young people and liberals gravitate toward modernity and champion the  virtues of  globalism; some of them even call themselves world citizens.

  Taken together, there are two forces battling it out in China, and  it's still too early to tell which sides will win out in this wrangling over ideology.  What's happening in Russia and North Korea can be served as a good reminder for China.

Let me shed some light on the matter...

The Origins of the Korean War, and The Korean War: A History: the Korean war started during the American occupation of the South, and it was Rhee, with help from his American sponsors, who initiated a series of attacks that well preceded the North Korean offensive of 1950.
Generous treatment of captured enemy troops.
Death to those that choose to fight.

The US leads the world in number of nukes - 7000; they can proudly keep this dubious distinction.
The US remains the first and only country to have used nukes - something it can be proud of!
The US leads the world in sovereign debt - some 16 trillion US dollars;
The US leads the world in killing civilians - no one will ever eclipse this wonderful record;
The US leads the world in spying on others - yep, they can keep this record too.
The US leads the world towards hell - well the free world is doing something about this.
Generous treatment of captured enemy troops.
Death to those that choose to fight.
