>Silver and Opium  - Antal E. Fekete - Gold University
Can anyone explain the total lack of understanding our friend Jim C exhibits in these forums? Is it that he/she is actually part of Obama's staff of propaganda pushers or is he/she really that dim?

He quotes the author "Fekete then says, "Chinese troops boarded British ships in international waters carrying opium to Chinese ports and destroyed their cargo..." So it was China that initiated force against the British, not the other way around -- and the British responded to the destruction of their property." He fails to see that the British were pushing opium on the Chinese and then tries to make it look like the British were the good guys! Let’s have a look at today’s situation with Jim's view. The drug cartels are the good guys and the US government and all its agencies that are fighting the cartels are the bad guys simply because they are destroying the cartels property.

Anyone else see the problem with Jim C's comment? I think so considering the down arrows.
