The fact? Your so called friend saying Chinese now are lying flat becomes a fact? can anything be more funny than this? Did " your friend‘’ tell you how hard Chinese people work everywhere, everyday?The fact that you admitted to it and tried to downplay it -- is the real joke.
China can beat you hands down without any reforms, your fast decline alone can do this job for us.Yeah...The US 'lost' in Afghanistan. Now we will just wait for the PLA to reform itself similar to the Taliban.
