I really appreciate Butter taking the time to converse with us

to give us a perspective of a person that was born in China and has lived there and experienced things from that side of the world.

My pleasure, deep.

U2 fans are friend.

Just like I said before, the American standard doesn't fit China, the Chinese standard won't fit America either.

The key fact is that in China when one dynastry replace another, the country's name would be changed. Think about it this way: One dog initially called "Tobby", went lost, got rescued, adopted by another person, a U2 fan, and the new owner decided to call it "Bono". The change of dynasty is actually the change of the ownership for the piece of land that we called China nowadays. But the change of the American government isn't the change of ownership of the piece of land, is it? However, the American Indian part is.
