They're not very inconvenient. The US had to stand up to perhaps the worst regime in human history, the Soviet Union, without being able to actually declare a war and get it over with (because of nukes). That's not a simple or morally easy task, fighting a cold war for 50 years. There will be casualties. Tell me, would you rather have China look like Soviet Russia right now?

I thought not. Thank the US, but for its policies, you would probably have starved to death as an infant.

I am real, I can be arrogant and I am American. That has nothing to do with the issue, however. The US was engaged in a protracted, complex, high-stakes struggle with one of the most monstrous regimes (the Soviet Union) the world has ever known.

I'm certain that you don't start rushing to the barricades over dirty tricks the Chinese used to repel the Japanese or that the Qing used to keep Europeans from taking chunks rather than crumbs of Chinese territory. I also doubt you view China's entry into the Korean War against UN forces as bad, even though it had essentially the same logic of maintaining security against a perceived, imminent threat. It's just another double standard.

Dear dolphin,

You are relatively new here and I welcome you . Please don't be alarmed or angered by the likes of " interesting " aka " scribe " aka  ....... He has reincarnated himself many a time because he could never debate or survive the onslaught from fellow forumites.  He is all puffed up , huffed up but with no where to go. He chest thumps and do a Jungle Jim  " me Tarzan " imitation but delivers nothing .

He is a blinkered to blind American apologist who struggle to find something ( anything ) nice to say about this dastardly Dubya regime but he cannot .Thus the bombast and the brag. Just like a spoiled little kid in the school yard . Be amused by bemused by him , but never be angered . He is not worth it . Cheers.

So, ZG, please explain where the American interests are involved and the story is not likewise consistent with the one I've already given?

It sure looks like the standard Cold War story explains far more US actions than the self-interest model.

Actually, I've not said anything nice about Bush, nor tried. Another lie from Mengzhi, not that it is unexpected.
