I can discern red and pink pretty well. I also am smart enough to realize that the colors of a watermelon very much parallel the enviro movement -- green on the outside, red on the inside.

Yep, all America's fault. The rallying cry of the America hater...Don't forget that we give billions of our taxpayer dollars to international welfare, billions through Christian charities, export free medicines, teach the world how to feed themselves, and protect and liberate oppressed people throughout the world...Your types would rather us be another third world, ruled by a dictator, with mass starvation and the socialist result of massive wealth unequality.

As far I understand, China does not lack "environmental regulations".

But those "environmental regulations" applies mostly to factories owned by foreigners.
Chinese factories owners have other ways to handle the "environmental regulations" or actually any kind of regulations.

This "way" can be called "direct local taxes" but is best known in other countries as "local officals bribery".

To say it franckly, the central gouvernement in Beijing seems to have more and more difficulties to handle the local authorities.

By "US" I meant us, you know, folks with a PC, enough money and spare time to enjoy kiteboarding (though I'm still not convinced that you kite). Not the USofA, though there is a lot I hate about the USA, now you mention it, mostly America's greed, unawareness of the rest of the planet and foreign policy bordering on the criminally insane.

Of course there's a flip side, almost my entire music and book collection is American, I was there 10 years ago, met a lot of good folks....
It'd be nice if you didn't try to make killing lots of people in the name of your god seem like a good thing to do.
Peace.

1)America is a continent, not a country. 2 continents in fact. Of course I don't blame you, I blame your pathetic and failing education system
2)You give money only to further your political agenda, and use it as a tool to strong arm countries into accepting military bases, regime changes, fundamentalist religious views (e.g. pregnancy termination favourable countries are excluded from receiving aid) etc etc
3)The thousands of dead Iraqis thank you for liberating them. So do the increasing numbers of dying Afghanis. However the thousands that were massacred in Burundi, Kabul, Bosnia etc (where coincidentally there is no oil) wonder what happened to the "liberators".
4)Dictator, massive wealth unequality (sic) - you mean like the USA?

Evey now and then, you really should travel outside the Axis of Good to get something other than the Fox News version of what your country is doing to the world.

Nobody with a half a brain thinks of "America" as anything other than the United States. There are South Americans, Americans and Canadians -- rather common usage.
2)You give money only to further your political agenda, and use it as a tool to strong arm countries into accepting military bases, regime changes, fundamentalist religious views (e.g. pregnancy termination favourable countries are excluded from receiving aid) etc etc

Given America is the freest, wealthiest, most generous country on the planet, furthering our political interests by supporting countries friendly to us, is a good thing. They win, and we win, and the scumbags lose.

Little newsflash for you, communist, a lot of countries don't want your unborn baby murder in their countries, and therefore we shouldn't support the abortion profiteers in those countries.
3)The thousands of dead Iraqis thank you for liberating them. So do the increasing numbers of dying Afghanis. However the thousands that were massacred in Burundi, Kabul, Bosnia etc (where coincidentally there is no oil) wonder what happened to the "liberators".

The families of the millions tortured and killed by Saddam, including the Kurds, are very thankful we are there. Of course if France had their way, as they didn't want to lose their oil contracts, Saddam would still be filling mass graves, torturing innocent people, raping women, and starving people to death.

You French would be speaking German, you would be a bad person or dead, if America didn't save your sorry cowardly hides...We fought for peace in WWII (56 million died), and we are fighting for peace now (infinitely less casualties).

The innocent Iraqis and Afghanis have a chance at freedom and peace, but the UN, France, Germany, China, Russia and the American Democrat party keep attempting to sabotage their success, and our success, because the neo-socialists are evil to their core.
4)Dictator, massive wealth unequality (sic) - you mean like the USA?

What a fool you prove youself. People fight to get out of dictatorships, not into them. People risk their lives to enter America, including the Vietnamese who we attempted to liberate, Cubans and Mexicans, and even French who suffer under your failing socialistic country. Our poor people look wealthy compared to the rest of the world.
