    I think that you are all missing the point. The Chinese intend to compete with every advanced nation in every field. And they are training far more engineers and scientists than about anybody else.

    You read what the Chinese are trying to do in the realms of engineering and education, it makes you weep.

    US School math, computing, engineering and related schools are mostly turning out foreign students. US students can't be bothered. The halls and cafeteria of the school I go to are full of varios shades reading texts on calculus, trigonometry, electrical engineering etc. All the palefaces are playing farm ville or Mafia wars.
