Only Philistinos and Chinese think it is a great idea to sell train tickets to people who want to tr ...

Hey Z:

So apparently you don't have any idea why China is building a network of superhighways and high-speed railways around the world for those countries which want a land bridge to the outside world.

So you have moved out of Jerusalem and returned to Tel Aviv?

Good.  You Zs can now start licking my boots.

Air travel is expensive because the cost/capacity ratio is too high -- mainly because of fuel prices and the fact that airborne planes are being lifted against gravity and can't travel by superconductivity like trains can.

Land transportation by trucks or railway is always cheaper than by air because the total fuel cost is relatively low.  Time is not a factor except in the most urgent cases, now that bullet trains can travel faster than airplanes.

With the prospect of using solar or other environmentally friendly sources of energy even for rail transport in the future, we can reasonably expect high-speed rail to be the best means of transport in the world.

With the Hongkong SAR's West Kowloon Station in operation, you can now plan on a one-day itinerary in which you can have breakfast in Hongkong, lunch in Guangzhou, finish your business and have a stopover in Shenzhen, and finally arrive home for dinner in Hongkong -- all within 24 hours.  You can afford to such cashless travel on a daily basis.

Other examples abound in the rest of China, like in the Beijing-Tientsin-Zhangjiakou or the Shanghai--Ningpo --Hangzhou triangles. You can't do that with any kind of air travel.

Affordable inter-connectivity is the issue here.  It makes previously land-locked nations accessible to and from the rest of the world.

Go to a world map and find out for yourself how many nations have a coastline with any of the oceans or even any seashore that leads to an open ocean.

You'll be surprised that out of the world's 200 countries, less than a third have a coastline that allows them to interact with the rest of humanity.  

No country can thrive without trade because no can manufacture everything it needs.  

Historically China was an exception in that hers was very much a self-sufficient economy before the arrival of Europeans.

That's why you hear about terms such as "Open Doors Policy," and that's also why the real-estate man's trade war adventurism would not work against China because the latter has already built a comprehensive manufacturing capability which is unique in the modern world.  It might cause some supply-chain dislocations and job losses, but no one in China is going to starve because of it.  

The bigger loser will be the U.S. because if China turns its attention to the service sector in the next round of counter-attacks, America will suffer much more than China does.

You can't wage a trade war against a self-sufficient economy like China's and hope to come out a winner in the end, not matter how that Navarro chap want to avenge his mom for that alleged attack in her New York apartment.

China is not offering fair opportunities to developing countries: Malaysia, Pakistan, Maldives, Me ...

You have been saying this all along but if you really go into detail and look at the reasons for cancellation, it is not like what you claim. China, on the whole, lets the business enterprises of the countries carry on with the negotiations and set a deal. Everyone goes into the deal with wide open eyes. China does not set the tone or the conditions. Whether the countries use Chinese companies is subject to the deal. There is no coercion or force to do so. Although there are cases of cancellation, that does not mean that all business transactions and government interactions are over. You are trying to portray China in a bad light. Instead of just reading bias news and vomiting out the same, you should read news from both sides and weigh the facts. You are making dangerous wild claims that do not help with globalisation. Not only that, you are consistently trying to bring down the government of China.

As salaam aleikum, my Philistino amico,

don't throw stones. Wait until Voice releases y reply to ...

No need to suck up by singing a prayer to me in the kneeling position -- it might cause you to dislocate your hip joint.

I am no Allah and don't want to be one.

Come to think of it, you do sound like a deviant psychopath mumbling words and phrases no earthling has ever heard.

A "y" that stands alone in a sentence is like a bridge that leads nowhere.
