      Would the US leaving korea cause NK to denuclearize?

      Also where can I catch what's been going on in the syrian civil war. There's a lot of assadist propaganda floating around

        North Korea would invade South Korea, if they thought they could get away with it.

        Reasoning asked that is I know this marxist who thinks because north Korea suffered 3/4ths of the civilian casualties, that they're the victims of western agression. He thinks nuclearization is a reasonable response to the joint american -south korean military drills. He also says that if the US withdrew , the kim dynasty would lose it justification for existing , and there would be a military coup against them.

      hey, shadow I was thinknig of starting of fan sub group to make higher quality Chinese subs, do you think it would be worth t?
      1. mr_shadow
        mr_shadow
        Definitely, though I wouldn't have time to participate in it at the moment...

        Also I feel like the quality of Chinese cinema has seriously gone downhill in recent years, but maybe that's just me getting old and not seeing the magic anymore.

        oh that's a shame, I mean I have a basic general knowledge on how to improve the subtitles for American shows I seen but not enough to do that alone let alone everything else involved.

        and I kind of agree, albiet I have seen any movies HK or mainland in the last year and a half

      What was the book on Afghan history you read?
      1. mr_shadow
        mr_shadow
        Barfield, Thomas (2010) Afghanistan: A Cultural and Political History. Princeton University Press.

        As you can see from the publication date it obviously doesn't cover anything that has happened in the last 7 years, such as the killing of bin Laden or the U.S. troop withdrawal, but I thought it was a great introduction to especially the pre-moden era.

        Ah I see. If you're ever interested in a supplemental refresher, "Games Without Rules" by Tamim Ansary is a brilliant read. The author is a Hazara Afghan with perfectly detached neutrality and his prose is crystalline. It goes through every major event since the rise of Ahmad Shah in a summary style.

        Only 8% of Chinese people are Communist Party members. The rest are just trying to live their lives in peace and didn't chose this system. You can like the people without liking the government.

      1. epyoncloud
        epyoncloud
        if you can read a full chinese book and understand 70%, it should not be difficult to find information and research.
        Chinese books are more accurate than english in describing history.

        Obviously. ;) Haven't you seen my posts in the Convo thread about how I'm reading through the pre-Qin canon?

        I can read both modern and classical Chinese, although I read much slower than I do in my western languages. I have to take a break every 10 pages or so to let my brain recuperate.

        Is there a specific reason you're asking?

        I haven't been to Germany in like 8 years, so hard to say. As for Sweden, I think people have a favorable view of "Chinese people" as hard-working and law-abiding, but a negative view of China as an oppressive Communist regime.

        Keep posting, and don't be a jerk to other members. Eventually people will start to recall your name.

        I wasn't exactly an instant success either. You can see I joined NF in 2005 and wasn't modded until this spring, so it took me 10 years to get to where I am now. I never actively aspired to be a mod though: they just asked me out of nowhere when Megaharrison quit.

        那要看我找的是中国大陆的材料还是外界的材料。

        百度会discriminate against国外的网站,所以你用它搜索英文的网站不是很efficient。但倒过来,用Google搜中文的话会出很多港澳台的matches。

        所以我都会用。
