Q: American troops are providing security for Chinese companies?

This is a very old story but it wasn't widely reported and I didn't know about it until the movie WTF.

Finding out about this was disgusting to say the least, and people wonder where Trump's support come from or why the UK voted to leave the EU.

What's so surprising? Isn't America in Afghanistan to see it develop into a free and flourishing democracy? How is Afghanistan supposed to do this without investment? China should be congratulated for making such a risky investment. America destroyed a lot of infrastructure in the war after 9/11. America should've attacked Saudi Arabia instead of Afghanistan as Saudi Arabia was far more responsible than Afghanistan was. Surely it owes Afghanistan a little in the way of paving its way to prosperity. I hope your not suggesting that America only involves itself in resolving conflicts for the sole reason of seeing said conflicts resolved in such a manner that benefits America. That would be rather selfish and morally reprehensible.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
