      > merlin, I know little about China, I think few Americans do. Theirs seem a strange hybrid of communism and capitalism. Our politics is beginning to sort out after the election. China it seems has some problems and I have no idea how to solve them. I know they will resort to brute force and they certainly have the troops.
      As long as Obama is in charge I doubt you will see USA start a stupid war. he is about trying to redistribute the wealth here and it will probably be a peaceful business. I do not think China wants a war with us. The seem to realise our codependance.
      As to yahoo I got a strange message when I replied that said I could not respond to your post. Nothing has come up and I have said most of what I did here. I do not involve myself in your mysticism interest but your interest in international matters is of interest. You seem clear bout your ideas . As to human nature and greed that seems a part of animal life in general. Fighting for food seems universal and the competition would seem to extend to most of the earths goods. Were we infinate we might escape the curse but it is part of living. The rule of law works ,sometimes but some learn how to pervert even that. I hate jails but know that is where some need be. I try to keep my wants in check and therefore my greed seems to remain in check. marcus Araelius said covetesness comes from the site of others property. I try not to look at what others have as as I am older I probably could not wrest it from them anyway. Perhaps that is one benefit of age. I might envy your knowledge of international events but I think you would give it up if I asked the better questions. So why doesn`t Great Britain use her prestiege and democratic age to influnce world affairs to a greater measure/ I could see you as being more a shining light than a grubbing competator with the rest of us.
