We Asians need to put aside our differences and form an alliance or we'll end up like the Rwandans.  Westerners love to play Divide and Rule:

Typical elements of this technique are said to involve

    * creating or encouraging divisions among the subjects in order to forestall alliances that could challenge the sovereign.
    * aiding and promoting those who are willing to cooperate with the sovereign.
    * fostering distrust and enmity between local rulers.
    * encouraging frivolous expenditures that leave little money for political and military ends.

Western countries have used the divide and conquer strategy in Africa during the colonial and post-colonial period.

    * Germany and Belgium both ruled Rwanda and Burundi in a colonial capacity. Germany used the strategy of divide and conquer by placing members of the Tutsi minority in positions of power. When Belgium took over in 1916, the Tutsi and Hutu groups were rearranged according to race rather than by occupation. Belgium defined "Tutsi" as anyone with more than ten cows or a long nose, while "Hutu" meant someone with less than ten cows and a broad nose. The socioeconomic divide between Tutsis and Hutus continued after independence and was a major factor in the Rwandan Genocide.

    * When the British Empire ruled Sudan, it restricted access between the North and the South. The British also neglected to develop southern Sudan or include southern Sudanese in governance. The disparity between the North and South helped lead to the First and Second Sudanese Civil Wars. See also History of the Anglo-Egyptian Condominium.

    * During British rule of Nigeria from 1900 to 1960 different regions were frequently reclassified for administrative purposes. The British used conflict between Igbo and Hausa as a means of consolidating their power in the region. Regional, ethnic, and religious splits remain a barrier to uniting Nigeria. [7]

The British employed "Divide and Rule" in British India as a means of preventing an uprising against the Raj. The partition of India is often attributed to these policies [2].

In his historical survey Constantine's Sword, James P. Carroll writes,

    "Typically, imperial powers depend on the inability of oppressed local populations to muster a unified resistance, and the most successful occupiers are skilled at exploiting the differences among the occupied. Certainly that was the story of the British Empire's success, and its legacy of nurtured local hatreds can be seen wherever the Union Flag flew, from Muslim-Hindu hatred in Pakistan and India, to Catholic-Protestant hatred in Ireland, to, yes, Jew-Arab, hatred in modern Israel. [Ancient] Rome was as good at encouraging internecine resentments among the occupied as Britain ever was." [3]

Good morning ladies .... !!!

.

There is an old Jewish proverb that might throw some light at the begining of this interesting thread .......

"Charity begins at home"

Ladies, make sure first .................you glue China together.... then go out there and try to solve our Asian goddamned differences.

China has worked very hard to get where she is now. There is a long way to cover ......

And my only doubt on China's success is ....... Is China going to know how to keep it's society together??

PEACE, ABUNDANCE AND PROGRESS TO THE PEOPLES OF CHINA, ASIA AND THE WORLD !!!!

If we all think alike, ... then nobody is thinking.

asians need to wake to the:

                                      AMERICA SYNDROME

There is a term called the "China Syndrome" that is used to describe a phenomenon in which a nuclear reactor core in an America Power Plant melting all the way through the Earth's center and comes out at the other side in China.  Well, it's just an anti-nuclear activists' over-stretched, fear-mongering imagination, combined with the prevailing America sentiment of China bashing, all carried to its Hollywood best.  But as facts can be stranger than fiction, a few weeks after the movie entitled "China Syndrome" opened, a core actually melted at the Three-Mile Island Nuclear Power Plant due to a panic-stroke operator's inadvertently shutting down of the cooling water.  And in the ensuing years, the whole America nuclear industry was choked to stagnation from over-regulations in response to the imagined "China Syndrome".

Just as China Syndrome is not real, America Syndrome is.  America Syndrome describes the reaction the indigenous people of a country to America's overwhelming military intrusion or threat.  It has colored the world's landscape ever since America emerged as a superpower.

The scenario starts with mob agitation within America by some politicians effort to label the target country as "evil", often times backed by religious overtones.  The Congress followed with appropriation of budget and then send troops either into the evil country or its neighbors' military bases.

Naturally this "open the door" wide, to the country's America sympathizers to seize the opportunity to "liberate" the people, often overtly or covertly under the banner of God.  These pet vultures and attacking dogs of America are like virus that leads to sickness and even death.  In the case of death, the country will surrender its identity and set up a puppet government cloned after America.  By opening market to this country, America can ensure its economic prosperity, in order to make it an showcase for Americanization, or democratization.  But when the death is not complete as in most of the cases, the countries are left in perpetual turmoils doing perpetual democratization.

Virus can kill, but also cause immunity.  Certain countries anchored deep in culture can survive.  But they first have to suffer through the America-backed sweeping purge of the insurgent resistances.  Then a strong leader of the insurgence emerges to counter- attack and purge the America's native proxy warriors.  Such counter-purge has to be thorough, extended to the slightest of the sympathizers of Americanization in order to bury all the hopes of victory for America.  So far, all such outcomes also have to be reinforced by a internal revolts in America against America's senseless and wasteful mob activities outside the country.

But such impacts of America Syndrome are no-victory for America and untold sufferings for the targeted countries.  And the cruelest cut is the forever lingering propaganda that distract the world from seeing America's unfounded aggression,  by high-lighting only the savagery of mutual slaughtering by the "evil" and godless, or wrong-god, people of the victimized countries.
