This image in from Marvel’s “Iron Man 3.”The emblem is the symbol of the “Five Rings” a terrorist group in the movie. The letters are from the Mongolian script, which is derived from Syriac Aramaic. Syriac is usually written horizontally, but the Mongolians wrote it vertically. At first glance it looks like Arabic-but it is the Syriac derived Mongolian script. The producers are afraid of being seen as “Islamo-phobic” or anti-“Asian” or “anti-Chinese.” In the comic book the Mandarin is a Chinese super-villain as powerful as Iron Man. In the movie, the Mandarin is an actor who serves as the front for the real villain-an American of course! In the comic book the Mandarin has 10 literal rings that serve as powerful weapons. It isn’t PC to make Muslims or the Chinese to look bad-but apparently Mongolians-and their kin-such as the Kazakhs, who were mocked in Borat-are fair game.
Speaking of Sinophobia:
China is apparently planning on transforming New York into New China!
U.S. immigration officials are considering a proposal from Chinese investors to create a multibillion-dollar development in New York’s Catskills called "China City" -- raising concerns among critics about the potential cost to U.S. taxpayers and, according to one analyst, the possibility it could be a "stalking horse" for the Beijing government. A spokesman from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services told FoxNews.com that the proposal for Thompson, N.Y., has not been approved but is under consideration. The mysterious proposed development appears to be a step beyond the types of ethnic enclaves scattered throughout U.S. cities, like the Chinatown sections of New York City or San Francisco. The 600-acre "China City of America" is located far outside New York City in upstate New York's wetlands and is a meticulously planned project, calling for family housing, a college and student residences, among other structures. In addition to needing federal approval, it would likely need a host of state and local permits before ground could be broken.
I hope to one day go to China to do a research tour of “Nestorian” (Assyrian Church of the East) Christianity in China. But why shouldn’t China try to colonize America? Many illegal immigrants from Mexico see the massive influx from Mexico as a reconquest of territory they feel is rightfully theirs. Besides, the United States government does not recognize that there is an America culture and people. We have no nationality-only “citizenship.” However, without a dominant culture-which America is losing-the country will surely collapse-which I think will be tragic. Despite all of its flaws, I believe that America has been the greatest force for good that the world has ever known.
