Asskicker. Would it break three bones, twist an ankle and slaughter six goats to spell "what"?

but back on topic.
China's record is very poor, but worst of all, it's always covered up.

well, if u look from 5000 years of history,
it is nothing to kill a few students in Tiananmen

but if u look at the past 200 years of history, i have to say Chinese government is kind of crapy, but there is a reason to cover it up, not because we r just bunch of SOBs, but cuz we dont want any unrest in our own country, a 1.3 billion ppl one,
perhaps in the future, there will be less and less cover up (i can see the improvments now)

but again, every country is not that good, U.S is not that pure either,

Well... the last 50 years is what's important I think. More so the last 30 years.
If you go back to pre-World War II, only some things are important but the world's changed so much it's hardly relevent anymore

agree,
but 50 years is really a small phase in the whole history right?

china is changing now, for ex, the new leaders first time admit their mistkaees to cover up SARS, very brave to risk the unrest in china,

It's a small phase in history from the start but it's VERY important if you consider the world today.
Usually the further back you go, the less it has directly to do with our current situations. And even then, probably those involved aren't even around anymore. Like the Ottomans. lol

Yeah, but if we're dealing with specific incidents in the present, the Roman Empire may have something to do with it, but hardly provides anything close to a solution or the immidiate cause of it.

China today is in a time of transition,
there is a sort of cycle in the politic of china
from centralization to decentralization,from war to unifiction stuff

china has just been unified, it needs more time to get stronger and freer
