CHINA SHOULD WAKE UP TO WHAT LITTLE JOHNNY SAYS THAT REFLECTS WHAT ADULTS MAY BE THINKING.
No faul ...
As days go by, the tension over Diaoyu-dao with Japan escalates . The war drills and the war preparations are in intense pace for both countries involved in the disputes. For over more than four decades, China has kept its submarine fleet in the background, but has recently come public with it in its TV network. Is anyone's guess behind China'smove. While China is prepared to face any external threats, China is surely ill-prepared to face any internal threats. A good example is letting its own national tabloit, the CD, in the hands of foreigners than its own, is nothing, but suicidal, to say the least. The enemy within is more fearful and lethal than those outside the gate! China should have learnt from its own past mistakes. What can happen to the caterpillar, as show below, can also be the ultimate fate of China.
Time for China to wake up and to seriously take concrete measures to detox of all the parasites from within itself!

As the caterpillar feed and feeds, it little realises it is eating not just for one but for many and not its own. Swimming inside the caterpillar’s ever more bloated body, parasites live on the blood of their host. They are growing too. These uninvited guests – larvae impregnated by a parasitiAs the caterpillar feed and feeds, it little realises it is eating not just for one but for many c wasp – will soon become masters of their unwillingly accommodating slave. Before long, their teeth will be sharp enough for them to slice their way out of the caterpillar – eating it alive from the inside out – while their host becomes a zombified bodyguard, protecting and ultimately dying for its murderous, newly hatched brood.
The caterpillar continues to feed and balloon, consuming one and a half times as much food as would one of its un-parasitized kin, with more than 30% of its body weight made up by the larvae. The burgeoning body invaders are clever, however, for while they drink their host’s blood, they are careful not harm its vital organs. They thus keep it alive while they are still steadily growing. The caterpillar’s role is not yet fulfilled. When fully mature after two weeks, the larvae are ready to break out from the protection of their surrogate womb, and their newly formed saw-like teeth are called into cutting action.
This is where it's easy to see how these critters inspired the movie Alien. To complete the next phase of their life cycle, the wasp larvae use their specialised jagged jaws to cut through the tough, thick layers of the caterpillar's skin that would otherwise present an impermeable barrier. The larvae also release chemicals that paralyse their host, rendering it powerless as they eat their way out. The castrating chemical warfare doesn’t stop here either: all along the larvae have been protected by a virus in which the eggs were coated that disabled the caterpillar’s immune system, stopping it from attacking and killing them as they grew.
Now, free at last, the larvae emerge and enter another life stage, swiftly spinning silken cocoons – the ideal environment for their final transformation. With the larvae themselves facing the risk of being impregnated by other species of parasitic wasp, the caterpillar is called upon for one last pitiful task. Through a sick twist of nature, this broken substitute parent aids its adopted brood, using the silken blanket it would normally use to make its own cocoon to cover the wasp pupae with an extra layer of protection. The then caterpillar even stays near the cocoons like some kind of brainwashed guardian.
So much is the caterpillar under control that it spends its remaining days repelling the attacks of other parasitic wasps that target the fresh C. glomerata larvae, its natural aggression exploited in a last mock-heroic stand before it finally succumbs to starvation. This bizarre corruption of the caterpillar’s behaviour is believed to be caused by the same wasp virus that infected it weeks before, and which now invades its brain.
