    Nowadays, it would be ’I’ll alert Pyongyang.(capital of North Korea.)
    I might have suggested Beijing, but China might not want their best customer’s economy to collapse.

    Prophetic? Insider knowledge? Maybe it seemed like a joke back then.

    This simply reflects the long and testy relationship between the press and politicians. It’s been going on for as long as there has been a free press. Mark Twain has some get short stories about being a newspaper editor in a small town. They touch on the same issue in some cases.

    The story is the same, only the names change.

    Also, China isn’t communist. In the last 20 years it has realigned itself with a free market economy with the private ownership of property and businesses. While China was a communist society from approximately 1950 to 1990 it has reverted back to being a good old fashioned oligarchy.

    This is in reference to the old soviet plot to destroy America from within. It worked, but old soviet russia wasn’t around to enjoy their success, and forgot to call off the dogs when they collapsed.

    Uh, if you want land in China you can only rent it, the government owns it, leases it out.

    I always have to remind people of a common mistake: neither Communism or Capitalism are a form of government, they are economic systems. The United States is a Federal Presidential Constitutional Republic. North Korea is a Heredity Single Party State.

    Knowledge is power!
