LOL, as if you guys don't address yoursef to be the leader of the "West".

You can have all those Christianists and I say good riddance.

Now, if a billion Chinese are driving their own cars, just like the Americans, instead of taking the highspeed railway, those western bashers will complain there are way too many polluting cars in China.

How come whenever a Chinese person supports his/her own country, it is necessarily because of nationalism?
I agree with you, high-speed rail is needed in China. I never said it wasn't. But there is other nationalism going off in here. And if it is I'm going to address it. I'm just pointing out that westerns will defend their countries as Chinese defend theirs.

You should get a clue that some provinces in China have way more population than California which has only 37 million. If most Chinese drive there own cars, they would need way more 10-lanes highways than they have now. Highspeed railways occupy a smaller footprint than 10-lane highways and are more energy efficient than cars.

A USofAmerican who supports his country is a patriot, a Chinese doing the same is a nationalist. That's how bigotry works.

Well personally I don't share that view as others do, the US and Canada were founded to get away from Europe. So by definition the two sides should be classified separately.

Don't tell me this, tell this to your media and your politicians.

One man can not change it alone, only the President has the power to change that sort of relationship. For that reason, I will be running for President as soon as I'm old enough to do so.

Good luck!

BTW, how would you call the USofA then? China is the Middle Kingdom, Europe is the "West". Are you going to be the "new" East?

Don't know, I have more than a decade to think about it still. But I'll make sure to make this one of the major purposed policy changes of my campaign. "Redefining the Relationship with the West"

No, no, I could do that all. But my strategy is to take the world by storm, you can't do everything in a day. The university speeches will come, don't worry. I'll be on the news....get my name on a plaque or something too. You'll see. I'm writing my first book as we speak.

Make sure to tell us the title of your book so that the whole SSC would buy one copy. That would certainly boost your reputation and last but not least, makes inflates your wallet a bit.

In my experience Siemens Velaro is noticeably worse that CRH2c (Kawasaki model) it's noisier, vibrates more and lacks that well though through touches of Japanese design. This is particularly apparent in 2nd class.

At least, the CHR's interior looks better than most of the japanese shinkansen, with the exception of the Tsubame 800.

Shinkansen 500 series interior(ugly):


Shinkansen 800 series(Tsubame)(nice, but the seats look cheap):

They look cheap. But I like the colors, better than the darker ones of the 500 series, it looks dirt or rusty...
