(Reuters)   Vietnamese protesters show their savvy geopolitical knowledge as they burn factories in Hanoi in protest of oil drilling in disputed territory. Also show their geopolitical naiveté when they don't know the difference between mainland China and Taiwan   (reuters.com) divider line 11

And China doesn't known the difference between China and Taiwan. They all look the same, expect the older Taiwanese look a little healthier.only a matter of time before China takes what is China's.

uber humper: And China doesn't known the difference between China and Taiwan.


Yep.  And considering Vietnam is technically still Communist, I'm willing to bet Vietnamese are taught explicitly that Taiwan is under the control of the PRC.

I chuckle every time I drive by the land mine protesters outside a certain munitions maker. Their signs (and web site) are protesting dumb land mines, and they're standing outside a place which only makes smart mines, the mines which were created to address the protester's issues.

But this munition maker is convenient for the protesters, as they can't be bothered to travel to the relevant ones. It's as if the protesters are dumb land mines, stuck in one place and making loud noises.

Kanemano: 1. Hanoi is not southern Vietnam,


2. It you don't read Chinese characters, it's hard to distinguish Taiwanese company names from Chinese company names.
