Re: Understanding the US - Again

PRC may be strong but it is not so strong that it can beat the US at the moment. The only way that can happen is for the PRC to seperate Japan form US. That's not going to happen. European situation prevents them from siding with any one other than US. So unless the PRC is able to make Putin disappe...

Nothing wrong with condemning an alledged attack on a Muslim for wearing skull cap and not agreeing to shout Jai shri ram.
