I think the US has lost all its credibility in the world since it became known where all of the 'credible documents' about Iraq came from. I'll believe there were chemical weapons used but most likely it was the rebels, trying to get other countries involved in their war.
Also, as a European, I'm getting ever so tired of hearing how 'America is the policeman of the world'. Why not let the Middle East countries clean up their own mess for once? The added bonus being a lot less angry Muslims giving the US the stinkeye.

It's racism to exaggerate undue fears that the Chinese are installing backdoors everywhere. They undoubtedly do install backdoors though..
However if the Chinese are ever coming for the USA, it will be through the courts with a small army of debt collectors.
So it's more about have realistic fears..
All the Chinese need to do is gain access to the NSA backdoors that are in all versions of Windows... That would be far more efficient.. and undoubtedly they already have..
