    They have a plan 2025... What do you think of that plan???

    It's certainly true that the Chinese are morally guilty of faking brands- but I don't know that that equates to being legally guilty as I don't know enough about patents etc. under international law. I've got a Chinese guitar, for example, clearly branded ' Fender ' although it's a knock-off. It's very, very nearly as good as the real thing, mind- although it was more than ten times cheaper.
    So- as a consumer I ask ' Has Fender been overcharging ? How can the Chinese produce the same product at a tenth of the cost ? '
    And then I look at the legal aspect and I think ' What hypocrisy that we should cite international patent agreements to the Chinese when we flagrantly piss on international law with regard to supporting Izraeli fascism ? ' So- in all honesty- I cannot condemn the Chinese for sharp trade practices - stealing- when our own practices bring about the death and displacement of thousands of people. Which is the greater crime here ?

    Seems pretty clear to me,



    So you seem fine w/ the Chinese breaking the laws when it suits you..

    What country/countries in the middle east should the USA be friends w/??

    Great crime-is always about who you ask, is it not?? Is the crime in Palestine greater than the one in Tibet?? the Spratly Islands, to the Hui, Uyghur & other minorities in China??

    It is really sad that some in our country have more trust & respect for foreign adversarial leaders than our own loyal opposition.

    Biden has done well to speak out. Republicans should either back him or speak out themselves.

    I said that I don't know enough about international patents law to know if China is acting illegally or not.
    I also said that it would be the height of hypocrisy for the US to attempt to use international law when it is one of the world's worst abusers of international law.

    Great crime-is always about who you ask, is it not?? Is the crime in Palestine greater than the one in Tibet?? the Spratly Islands, to the Hui, Uyghur & other minorities in China??
    The crime against the Palestinians is greatest to my mind. That's why I concentrate on it. If others think there are greater crimes elsewhere then they should concentrate on those.

    You mouth that inane nonsense- but in my 16,000-odd posts you'll never find anything to support it.
    How do you account for that ?
    Could it be because you're a prosemitic loser ?

    Being prosemitic means I support the best nation in the ME and not wanting to see the Jews killed.

    If you are happy to see Arabs killed in order to gratify your prosemitism then you're a racist criminal appeaser. Izrael is acting illegally. Those that support such Jewish privilege are complicit in Izraeli crimes.


    None of which even hints at me ' hating Jews '. You should apologize before you fuck off.

    All the Arabs have to do is abandon Islam. Then I might be more inclined to take a neutral position.

    And you do hate the Jews.
