(Telegraph)   How friendly is the relationship between China and Best Korea right now? Well, when Chinese officials refer to Kim Jong-Un as "Fatty Kim" or "Fatty The Third", what does that tell you?   (telegraph.co.uk ) divider line

J. Frank Parnell: Infernalist: Go and READ and educate yourself before you throw out plainly bad information.

As you type on a keyboard made in China, looking at a screen made in China, wearing clothes made in China, sitting in a chair made in China, with maybe a TV on in the background made in China, and a cellphone nearby made in China. (don't bother clarifying it's a wooden chair your grandpa made or something, i think you get my point).

The US is dependent on Chinese goods. There's no denying that. But China isn't dependent on the US for anything. Everything it gets from the US it could easily get somewhere else at the same prices. That was my main point.


Completely irrelevant to your ridiculously erroneous statements regarding the status of the US in regards to exports.

The rest of your thinking is highly speculative, and based on pretty shaky assumptions, as well.  I'm going to simply lol in your general direction and slip out of this wet mess of a discussion and pray that you take 10 minutes to educate yourself in the basics of a discussion before engaging the loose nut between your Chinese made keyboard and your Chinese made chair.

What we should do is load a catapult with those chocopie things and shoot them at North Korea and see what happens.

"The American's are shooting food at us comrade Kim."

"What kind?"

"Chocopies."

"Well hell, bring me some; and tell the Americans that we know they aren't serious because they aren't shooting pizzas at us."

What I can't figure out is, wtf are all these generals and stooges all decorated for?  You know, wtf did they DO to get all those flashy ribbons and twizzlers and fizzbangers on their unis?

So, I'm no expert on North Korean uniforms, but having watched plenty of clips of DPRK generals and officers, that picture looks like some kind of BS photoshop.  Sure, some countries love to go nuts with the military decorations but medals on their pants and all along their sleeves?  Yeah right.

/And I'm not just talkin pixels.

Ah, it appears you are correct. Here's the original.

[images.plus613.net image 800x452]

That's still a lot of medals for people who have probably never seen combat.

J. Frank Parnell: Incontinent_dog_and_monkey_rodeo: 
The US doesn't really have much in the way of exports, and is primarily an importer.



J. Frank Parnell: Infernalist: Not much in the way of exports...Really?

I never said it had no exports. Just that there's significantly more importing.

And the major thing is manufacturing. What the US exports are mainly raw materials, but it imports most of its manufactured items. If it suddenly didn't have China to manufacture things cheaply it wouldn't recover quickly, if at all.


I think you may well need to get examined for memory issues.  You may have a leak.

And the slightest glance at the link I've already provided shows that the US exports mostly Machines, oil, air craft, electronics, medical equipment, pharmaceuticals, organic chemicals, plastics.

NONE OF WHICH ARE RAW MATERIALS.  Are you dense?  Go and READ and educate yourself before you throw out plainly bad information.

40 year old American road iron and they don't even blink at what that says about them as a nation.

Hey now! Having owned and restored over 6 tons of 40 year old American road iron, I'd say this is one place where I'd agree with the North Koreans.

I think when his regime collapses one way or the other, we're in for some very interesting stories. Real Caligula/Dr. No stuff.  I'm looking forward to the HBO series on "The KIms".

A Shambling Mound: Chinese officials most certainly do not refer to King Jong as "Fatty", regardless of their feelings about his recent antics.  I can't find a link right now but I'm pretty sure exactly one Chinese news outlet ran a story referring to Kim Jong in that manner and the author of the story was suspended as a result.

Also, the linked article specifically states that "ordinary Chinese" use the phrase, not officials. So, good job all around there, Subby and Telegraph et al.


Someone seems...............upset.

North Korea is like the nere-do well brother in law that's sleeping on China's couch.  He is loud, spends their money, won't get a job and leaves a mess in the kitchen and the living room.  China would love to get rid of him, but can't.
