  2. Do not despise the snake, for one day it may grow into a Mighty Dragon. These men running are bandits, outlaws, in the water margins of Xiang-Shan Po...

    The BBC has something about this on their website today (18/08/05). They make it sound like a marriage made in, well, Hong Kong.

  7. This just goes to back up what Ken Connor (of them) wrote in his book 'Ghost Force'

    In future, countries won't face each other on the battlefield, instead they will undertake a course of small stealth wars aimed at destabilising the opositions power. It's already happening and has been for years (french industrial espionage, isreali assasination squads), it's just that the Chinese are doing it on a far larger scale than anyone has before.
     
  8. As opposed to Kenneth Connor of 'Carry on tewting' fame.

  9. That's not new. It's exactly what Britain and Russia did throughout the C19th in Central Asia - the original Great Game.

  10. Goes back to the Greeks/Romans vs the Persians
     
  11. God damn pesky romans, greeks, persians and rooskis, don't they know that there is no greater power than that of these here United States of Grand America
     
  12. Well, historically, there's never been any empire as powerful as the USA is right now.
     
  13. There is no US empire. We dont have colonies. But the US is powerful and thats because the US taxpayer believes in paying for a strong national defense. Sadly most of our allies have gone the other direction.
     
  14. How dare you say that! Why if it weren't for the lack of a credible Army, Navy or Airforce Britain would wipe that smile of your face. As it is we'll just be really snide about you instead.
     
  15. We don't have an empire
    Well after the mess ya left in the Philipeanes ya dont deserve one.
