#1 The Chinese really despise those that offer them "useful fealty".

To them, it means the barbarians are saying first that they think China is weak, second, that they, the barbarians, think that they have something that the Chinese need, and third, that they think themselves peers of the Chinese. It sounds weasely and insulting.

The typical Chinese response to this is to put on an elaborate show for the barbarian to impress them, and behaving all sweetness and light.

If, however, the Chinese respect or fear a barbarian, they are very taciturn and businesslike, and the last thing they will do is show their hand.

#2 Hokay; sounds like Pakland doesn't need any updated weaponry from us - except for those dropped in Waziristan in anger. Gloves off!

#3 The timing is obvious. President Bush goes to India to do nukie; PakiWacki go to ChiComs to do boogie.

I suspect more "hot pursuits" will ensue.
