    I thought laowais were the only one coming to China to destroy Chinese culture and bringing crimes.

    We still need Emperor Bo anyway.

    It is a sign that Chinese businesses continue to be troubled by the country's stubborn gang culture as they expand overseas.

    DD, How do u understand this one, Chinese gang culture??? or local country's gang culture? I might be too young to say this, but I don't really know if gang's a common phenomenon...

    I think "gang" here might be referring to the Chinese governmet or the Party ...

    One common saying about China is that it is the most "productive" country, in the sense that it has so many people to "order" around and can easily "change" an entire area (size and details to be defined) within 48 hours or less ... in other words, life is relatively cheap in this country, and if "human trafficking" is the latest Chinese export, it should not be a HUGE surprise ...

    One really disgusting joke that I think the spammer would like:

    You will drown if you get spit on once by every Chinese

    A better one is:

    You could easily become the richest (or among the richest) if every Chinese gives you just one mao (ten cents)

    C'mon, the Chinese companies going to Africa are not aiming at the cheap labors, but the nature resources!

    Ditto @Schokoschoko. Cheap labor has to be the last thing China wants from Africa. The African Union headquarters was built entirely with Chinese labor.

    Hahahaha ... was that not the same (or similar) question raised by the western countries when they first came to China? Or SE Asia in general?
