What in the world?

Not really much of a loss considering 90%+ of windows copies in China are pirated.

No surprise there.

With the lack of respect we now have abroad, other countries are not scared of the big, bad US anymore and are flexing their muscles.

Back to the Carter years!!!

"Back to the Carter years!!!"

I am reminded of a post I make on the Kanye West thread where you called me out for dragging politics into it. Thank you for doing the same here.

And on another note, what the heck did that have to do with anything?

QBRanger November 20 2009 3:49 PM EST

Unfortunately this has everything to do with politics.

Did you read the article? And been keeping up with our President's recent trip to China.

China is now starting to gain a voice, a loud one. And the US will do nothing to stop it due to their now pacificist ideology.

We're currently at war

"We're currently at war "

That very much depends on whom you ask. Atty General Holder seems to believe not.

... My head hurts after reading that...

And OB your portrait is hilarious. Love it

"Did you read the article?"

Yes. It is about copyright enforcement.

Only you could use this as an excuse to go bashing liberals again.

"China is now starting to gain a voice, a loud one."

Just now? Where the heck have you been? China has been an economic force to be reckoned with for well over a decade now.

And I'm not sure what type of war you would have us enter into in order to better compete with China, economically. Should we nuke them? Apply tariffs? Disallow goods from their country?

"Might" (as you are stating, anyway) has absolutely nothing to do with it, so I'm afraid LB called you out pretty much dead-on on this one. Complete flame-bait. On Slashdot you'd be moderated so far down that the admins could barely see you.

QBRanger November 20 2009 5:20 PM EST

How better to explain.

Till now, China has been less vocal about these type activities. Vocal is the key point now.

Now, with a weak administration, they are getting more vocal in their tude. Not saying we should "nuke them".

And I could care less about Slashsomethingorother.

Lord Bob November 20 2009 5:27 PM EST

"Now, with a weak administration, they are getting more vocal in their tude."

Sounds to me like this is a reaction to us being more strict with them.

Liberal pacifism my shiny metal rear.

Lord Bob November 20 2009 5:28 PM EST

"And OB your portrait is hilarious."

Yes, it is rather excellent.

QBsutekh137 November 20 2009 6:01 PM EST

You're right, Ranger. It was much better when China just stayed off the radar on everything, including human rights atrocities and a general oppressive approach.

The fact they are more vocal now is a GOOD thing. Because that voice will reveal more than they want. If you want the US to play it "tough" and keep China shut up, you need to build a time machine and go back to the Coolidge administration. There's no place for that kind of fossilized thinking any more.
