Thread: The Great Wall is not a rubber band

  1. #1 The Great Wall is not a rubber band 
    The Great Wall of China is the oldest existing fortress and is listed as World Heritage by the UNESCO. The original length of the Great Wall was about 6,300 km!
    But the length of Great Wall, which is fixed, has increased by more than three times during the past four years. The length of Great Wall that China has recently announced is 21,191km!
    The Great Wall is not a rubber band, but how can the length extend so much?
    The extension of the length of the Great Wall is a trick to emphasize that various ethic groups in Chinese territory are a single historical unit. It is also a trick to argue that Koguryo and Balhae, which are Korean historical countries, belong to their territory.
    China doesn't hesitate to distort history for their own interests...
    Does China give up becoming a global leader country as G2 nation and decide to become criticized hegemony?

    Manipulation and inversion of truth is just one of the tools of a totalitarian empire, and China is nothing if not that. Chinese law forbids any territorial concessions. Once something is part of China, it cannot ever be independent, which is why they go nuts over any concessions towards Taiwan. Adding to the Great Wall in order to expand their domain shouldn't surprise anyone. It's no different than Muslims converting churches to mosques and destroying any evidence of pre-Islamic cultures in their conquests.

    Before you can do things for people, you must be the kind of man who can get things done. But to get things done, you must love the doing, not the people!
