A joke about China--China is number one country terrorists are afraid of

Bin Laden said: " China is number one country we are afraid of".

Al-Qaida organization sent five terrorists to attack China, the results were:

First terrorist intended to blast a cloverleaf junction in China , however he fainted on the crossroad bridge thanks to the complexity of this cloverleaf junction.

Second terrorist intended to bomb a Chinese public bus, however he was not able to get on that bus because too many people are already on that bus and he failed .

Third terrorist intended to blast a Chinese supermarket , but his remote controller was stolen and he couldn't detonate the bomb.

Fourth terrorist planed to bomb a Chinese tall building, however he was beaten nearly to death by a Chinese security guard, and the guard shouted : " Why do you want your wage back? Why do you want to accuse our leaders of wrongdoings ? "

The final terrorist succeeded in bombing a coal mine in China and hundreds of miners died. When he safely returned back to Al-Quida, however he didn't hear any news about this explosion after half year had been passed, finally he was executed for lie by Bin Laden. lol

How glad that you are such a China-fan, you talk about nothing else. Mr. Green

Or Itp-008 isn't a real China-fan. I guess she or her grandmother or her mother was raped by Chinese men. that may explain her hatred towards China. if my guess is wrong, then sorry, Itp-008.

Another explanation: Itp-008 is an unsuccessful Chinese person, however, she never pins her failure on her lack of ability, instead, she likes to pin her bad destiny on China's policy or China's leaders. actually, if you are unsuccessful at your work or your promotion, you should blame yourself. because in China, some people also are high up in the pictures, I mean, those capable people. but the others are not so successful, mainly due to the lack of their skills and ability.

If one person blames everyone and everything but not herself, she is never gonna make it.

RedRose, don't you think it would be a good idea if you chill out a bit? This place is nothing but a student forum so that everybody is welcome to stress their opinions on every topic. Can't you be non-committal more often? I know sometimes it's really hard to restrain yourself and reply calmly but that's what they call a "dialogue". I am not quite sure if stating that somebody was raped is the best way to express your own opinion. I fully understand that you want to defend your country from wrong accusations and made-up beliefs or opinions but I would be glad if you make it in an appropriate way here. China must be a wonderful country, but alike elsewhere, we'd find there a great number of things that are illogical and funny. That's the reason the jokes are invented for, isn't it? To underline such events, facts or myths...

I wasn't stating that. actually, that was just a guess, not a statement. Very Happy if you go through all Itp-008's posts, you will find that she talks about nothing but her complaint and attack against China. I know China isn't that perfect, but I just can't figure out why someone hates a country so terribly. so I figured out some guesses. and I already said:"if my guess is wrong, then sorry."

IMHO, my second guess makes more sense. I mean, mainly, I still think Itp-008 is an unsuccessful Chinese person. that's why she blames everyone and everything but not herself.

Some unsuccessful people pin their failure on their lack of ability and skills, but some people don't. instead, they pin their unsuccess on their country/their leaders/ their society. that's exactly what a coward dose.

RedRose is known for being ribald and caustically humorous. It's her forum personality. Add to this the fact that in some Chinese societies humor can be very blunt. It's her way of expression when she has a difference of opinion with someone. Most people tolerate it well - just as you suggest.

ltp-008 is known for writing long opinion pieces foaming with invective aimed at China's government, sometimes Chinese society, and often critical of Chinese people. This is the first time I have seen humor in ltp-008's posting. It's good to see an attempt at a new style of communication - though the message is the same. Most people tolerate ltp-008 as well.

However, ltp-008's "joke" is a jab at China, and Chinese culture and people. It's fair for someone (especially a Chinese someone) to jab back.

They both have passion, they both have energy, they both have personality. They add a bit of spice to the mix. I agree with ltp-008 far less than I do with RedRose - but I appreciate that they both participate.

Spice is better appreciated with a grain of salt. Smile

I initally didn't want to comment about your stupid , immoral and mental disorder reply, honestly I don't have any hatred feelings toward to China, I respect all Chinese and its culture, but you should know the different among the country, government and communist party, hope you can become clever self-thinker somedays in the future.

No matter of how you think about me, I am sure that I am far more successful than you , your superiors and even all your relatives , but this is not my point, my point is that you should learn some social manner and reasoningly debate with other posters, sleeping with your superiors may get your some advantages, what if your husband finds your affairs? flirting with some stupid boobs in this forum doesn't make you more attractive, you shouldn't have lost your self-esteem to flatter to him, he is just a jerk in the States.

Finally if what I said had offended you , I am sorry for this, hope you can become reasonable lady to debate with other posters in this forum in the future even though you are angry on their posts.

Turtle ,you can have your own views about me no matter of what they are, but do you want to know my views about you, honestly you are a jerk whom I have ever seen in this forum, please don't be too inferior, you can improve yourself when you grow up, however if you are naturely lack of human quality you will never become a smart guy. Good luck~

You shouldn't have lost your dignity , if you don't agree with me on my other posts being a gentleman to debate, insulting and slandering others don't make someone more powerful and successful, hope you can know this basic principle for being a real gentleman.

First, what I wrote was about your writing, not a personal attack. I wrote, "ltp-008 is known for writing long opinion pieces foaming with invective aimed at China's government, sometimes Chinese society, and often critical of Chinese people." And this is an accurate statement.

What you wrote about me is different, "honestly you are a jerk whom I have ever seen in this forum, please don't be too inferior, you can improve yourself when you grow up, however if you are naturely lack of human quality you will never become a smart guy." It is personal insults, and it is false. It is not the best way to increase your credibility.

I did not say that you do not "respect China, all Chinese people and Chinese culture." I can't stop you from seeing what you wish to see in my writing. But attempting to discredit me by putting words in my mouth, it will have very little effect on a discerning reader.

This is what I exactly think about you, hope you can improve yourself in the future, if you felt being offended, I am sorry for this, sometimes you twisted other people's words for your own purposes, sometimes you offended others you pretend not to realize them, so you need to learn a lot of Moral Verse, hope you can really understand what Louzi said in his Moral Verse. Good luck.

!!!! Please focus on the theme , never the personal atacking.

This Humor I have seen before has something in chinese reality.No one can deny that Chinese democracy is not built so well till now. But we have to see that there is still great development in democracy in this country. Please wish a thing is going to be better.
China has its own weakpoint which should not be ignored. If someone want to use them as his own nationalist tool, I will be very sorry.
