    African countries prefer the Chinese by far to the Americans and Europeans. This is because China doesn't have the bad tradition of colonial mastery, plus the Chinese credit and business terms are much more friendly to local corruption practices. The Chinese are worse for the people though there.

    When I was in Masaru, capital of Lesotho, I went up to the new parliament building which was nearly finished. The Chinese were working on it. This is a country whose lowest HIV/AIDS region has a 19% rate. The capital estimates that 50% of child bearing aged women have the disease.

    And the Chinese go and build a new parliament building.

    They're going to control the world soon.

    China also doesn't tell people off about Human Rights. China wants something, you can slaughter half your population, China doesn't care.

    It’s amusing and exposes the left for the hypocrites they are that when the US gets involved in another country, they yell “Interventionist! Colonialist!” But when we pull out they yell “Isolationist”.

    You frauds hate peoples who know history.

    British culture is just fine

    Our ability to spread our culture and values around the globe is crippled

    Maybe that is the right way of thinking though. High ideals kill more people than profiteering and greed.

    Most Left wing fools say we have no culture. That is what Sweden said. Look where they are. And to deny Britain is caving to Islam is ridiculous and you know it.

    Well.... people seem to want to kill no matter what their claim to think.

    I'm not sure if the high ideals of the US have killed more people than the Nazis or the Soviets etc. Though, the US is no saint even though it claims to promote Human Rights.
