The Chinese are just trying to tlick us into herping the lebers.

Because of the abdication of a whoring US Congress,
busy fleecing the American public through their
“Laws” made for OTHERS,
WW3 is developing as the Free World + Russia and China
vs the USA and al Qaeda.
Will they blame it on "old maps".
Nice and our government is arming the rebels.
How is this so? Isn’t the official Chinese position to support the Syrian government? How does his trashing the rebels put him in any bad position?
The rebels are already having a hard time, do they really want to bring the Chinese into this?
I don’t think the rebels really want to bring the Chinese into this conflict. Mao subsidized Communist insurgencies around the world to the tune of tens of billions (back when a Mickey D’s burger was 20 cents) at a time when Chinese were dying of starvation in the tens of millions, and Chinese GDP per capita was as low as or lower than the least developed African countries. With its present GDP per capita in the upper half of the table, and a total GDP greater than all of the Muslim countries put together, China could keep Assad afloat and in guns and ammo for as long as he needs to push all the Sunni Arabs out of Syria.
I have had some discussions with PRC nationals about this kind of stuff.
They are as naive as most US liberals and don’t think that any of these nations would ever hurt them, especially after all they’ve done for them.
Hong Kongers are the worst about this. They will glibly take a tour into a really dangerous area because, and they’ve told me this, “We’re not Americans, nobody hates us”
China is about to find out in the next few years that part of the job description of a Super Power is being hated
Our future allies at work.
Destroying Christian villages, beheading opponents, shooting POWs, trying to assassinate diplomats....a busy bunch, aren’t they?
China state-owned firms have projects and personnel in Syria. If their interests are at risk, the response will not be unbelievably small.
