Roses are red violets are blue, impressed by the Shanghai tower are you.
Huge towers of concrete and steel, that is the real deal.
The greatest city is Shanghai, because the towers scrape the sky.

I think youtube has servers around the world, while Chinese video sites are targeting internet users within the country only.

The USSR and the PRC where almost enemies, and the USSR deployed lots of enemy vehicles, and ICBMs, etc. there. Its not likely that China would be Soviet. How about Communist China?
