After watching the amazing job China did of hosting the 2008 Olympics, do you feel a bit intimidated by them?
Especially the Opening ceremonies - it was an awesome display of what Chinese manpower can do. And, considering China's population (1,320,000,000) is over 4X that of the USA coupled with their growing economic power, do you feel at all intimidated by the nation of China?

It's not China itself that is intimidating, but the hunger of multinational, globalized economies to cut costs and stay competitive... More

Impressed is a better word, I was very impressed. I'm also impressed at HOW they use their power. They're the wealthiest and strongest in the world, but you don't see them invading and bullying other countries around, which they could do with their pinky ;) They DID set the bar so high that I'd hate to be in London's...

Well, I am Chinese American, so no. I hope others aren't intimidate because on a purely selfish level, life would suck for us Chinese Americans if the west becomes too fearful of China. On a non-selfish level, it would be bad for both countries to have another Cold War.

I live by the southern border of the US, I'm more scared of Mexico than China.

I'm more intimidated by a nation who invades other nations based on groundless accusation. The great show put on by China in the Olympics is fine by me.

I thought the drum segment was awesome too. But in real war, the number of people is not as important as it was in the old days when the army's strength decides who would win. Now planes and bombs decide who would win... More

Modern warfare is fought on the economy, not militarily (unless you're a middle eastern country sitting on deep rich oil fields). China improving will only push the Americans to work harder instead of sitting on their a**es and singing all day about how they are the best etc.

I was a little skeptical of the chinese before this. But after seeing the olympics they put on, im impressed and feel great for china.

I'm more scared that certain countries can contain such immature judgmental lying whiny crybabies such as SkyeR who answers every question regardless of content with an immature whiny lying stab at American out of pure jealousy and hatred for a better country. That type of petty ignorance is scary.
