Your conspiracy theories are entertaining, but they are bordering on spam…

The Chinese regime will never reform. The only true reform would require them to step down, and what sort of government would reform itself out of existence?

All we can hope for is for the incoming regime to drop the dangerous expansionism, but I think that is grasping at straws.

Response: As you know, comrade, Communists were born with just one conspiracy…the “historical necessity” for the defeat of the West. If you are unaware of that fact, then you shouldn’t be commenting in areas that you aren’t qualified on.

Of course, when the “collapse” of the Chinese Communist government takes place in several years or so, and Taiwan is politically stymied from not joining the mainland, we all will know the truth. Won’t we, comrade?

Response: the USSR and East Bloc inexplicably and fraudulently “reformed” itself out of existence over twenty years ago, which is what I’ve been alerting readers here at Reuters about. You contradicted yourself in the space of two comments, proving you’re either a Communist agent or someone in need of an editor!

It is not true that the number 1 historical goal for all Communist nations is the defeat of the West, with all other priorities rescinded. China certainly has no such goal. Moreover, look carefully and you will see little difference between the governments of China and Japan. The world has moved on from the Cold War. Things are not so simple these days.

Any proof for this, or is just a… conspiracy theory?

Do you really not know the difference between reform and collapse?

Response: As you know comrade, first came the “reforms” in Russia, then the “collapse”. Have you forgotten Gorbachev’s “Perestroika”?
