>> 6. Centralization of the means of communication and transport in the hands of the state.

I dispute this.

Where is this ether under state (or any reasonable) control...?

>> . Extension of factories and instruments of production owned by the state; the bringing into cultivation of waste lands, and the improvement of the soil generally in accordance with a common plan.

I dispute this.

How are all the factories and corporations that leave our shores under any form of state control.

This is old stuff.

I read this when I was a kid, when communism still lived.

Communism is dead today, and I never got to actually kill one.

it's dumb paranoia... There is so much better stuff out there today, why waste time on this.

Coast to Coast has better stuff than this on every night.

China and Russia joint exercises to strengthen ties

Nearly 10,000 troops are to take part in unprecedented joint military exercises by China and Russia this month aimed at strengthening ties between the armed forces of two powers that were once bitter foes.

Chinese state media said yesterday the “Peace Mission 2005” exercises would be held from August 18-25 in and around the Russian far eastern port of Vladivostok and the Chinese coastal province of Shandong.

The scale of the exercises, which will involve land, air, naval, paratroop and marine forces, underlines the determination of Beijing and Moscow to expand a military relationship that has blossomed over the past 15 years.

Communism is dead, huh?

Are you paying a progressive income tax?

The Cold War is far from over. Some of us are still fighting it, while others turn a blind eye mistakenly believing the fight was against the Soviet Union. Communists have infiltrated every level of our bureaucracies. Communists preach to our children every day while they sit in a classroom. There are numerous communists passing (or at least attempting to pass) laws in our state and federal governments.

When the Berlin wall fell it released like a tsunami a wave of communism that swept over Europe and engulfed it. The waves on our own shores are getting pretty high.

America is the Last Beach.

You are ignorant or blind, my friend.

COMMUNISM IS AN IDEOLOGY. IT IS ALIVE AND SPREADING TODAY!

If China and Russia get together, then so what.

Two third world forces loaded with cannon fodder and 1970's technology...

In the first gulf war we took out 4,000 soviet built talks with the loss of 10 M1's.

Their joint exercises will probably cost them more casualties via accident and miscommunication than we lost in both gulf wars, if it does not end up in outright combat between the new "allies". Talk about pie in the sky, Russia made one of these type alliances in the past and they ended up with 25 million dead and brigades of Schutzstaffel 20 miles from Moscow.

Soviet and Chicom military is chit compared to our force, their only strength lies in our fear.

Look, you just keep telling yourself China isn't a threat or a problem, nor Russia. They're our friends, and the military build-up underway is to help protect us from ourselves.

Also, I'm not scared of them, but I'm also not blind to them.

They are not our friends, never have been and likely never will be.

They are also in no way our equals militarily.

If you want to help protect us from ourselves, then get active, as our military budget is yearly being transformed from armament and personnel into social security and Medicare.

We are at risk in 20 years, when we will have about the same military capacity as Denmark, given our other needs.
