This morning's SMH runs a front page story about Chinese 'racing against time' to invest in resource-rich countries like Australia.
It seems that the rest of the capitalist world (Britain, USA and Australia) are tripping over themselves to get trade deals, foreign investment and favoured status with THE WORLDS BIGGEST COMMUNIST NATION.
Didn't we spend billions and 40 years fighting the tide of communism? Does it matter that they are communist anymore? Is it irrelevant? Was the Cold War for nothing?
Not being racist - just asking a core political question that seems to be thoroughly lost on the world now. Do we want to deal with these yellow reds? What are the alternatives? World wide seizure of the economy?
Ahhh... too many questions. I just don't want my national sovereignty to be compromised 50 years down the track because the Chinese own all Australia's mines.
