Yeah, Trump is such a baddie so lets just cozy up to communists... 

Don't you get it? Trump IS cozying up to Communists. Putin and the North Korea fat man ring any bells with you? He's crawled up the a##e of both so far he's mimicking the grand cesilical elliptical ouzel bird.

You've done this before. I will repeat:

No other "western" country has anything like the U.S. 1st amendment. Free speech looks very different than you imagine in the rest of the "wet".

And will likely do it again. I've spent the great majority of my long life outside my country in many places, including growing up. Been in lots of 'in the news' places. I was in the Soviet Union in the 60s.

 

Peoples' freedoms vary widely around the world, it's not black and white as you suggest. Even in the USSR freedoms varied. Russia was quite bad. I also have long connections to China, Chinese, and even it's history. The problem is not China, it is the CCP.

Well then, lets get them there. Which countries will volunteer for Chinese army bases first ?  Plenty of European nations are waiting in line for an opportunity at hosting the Chinese army.

Or, what about not being occupied, either by the American or by the Chinese army?

To me they look a lot like the "ugly american" tourists of the 50s, 60s and 70s.

You forgot 'loud mouthed'

If there are, say 10 million wealthy Chinese, able to take luxury holidays, that is a huge number...compared with the UK, Germany or France...but...it is a drop in the 1.4 billion Chinese people bucket...

 

Average Chinese workers are hardly known for enjoying the good life, not to mention the 1 billion or so still living in the countryside (the Chinese Isaan).

 

Misery is not exclusively a financial issue...repression, lack of freedom, censorship and so on also bring misery to their victims...just ask the Tibetans...

Add the Uyghurs to that group as well.  They have been repressed for quite some time with no end in sight.
