I'm back from an interesting trip to Siem Reap and Yangon. Thought not a huge force in Siem Reap, Yangon was overflowing with Chinese: workers, businessmen, tourists. In fact, as we were leaving Aung San Suu Kyi's house, a busload of Chinese tourists pulled up.
At least for me, it's hard not to draw a parallel between the conquest of the US frontier, where we basically funneled immigrants out to take over the rest of the country and the way China is sending people everywhere to build, though I don't know who the Chinese equivalents of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and Judge Roy Bean are.
This New Yorker article looks at the MH370 disappearance and sees another way they are growing to be just like us.
