An apology to China....

Hi Folks,
Just a little item I got in my email this morning.Thought I would pass it along to you.

      The United States of America apologizes to the People's Republic of China for allowing our slow, lumbering reconnaissance plane to be hit by your poorly trained, hot-dogging fighter pilot, while flying in international airspace.
      We're sorry we have to fly surveillance missions to monitor a country that has nuclear missiles pointed at us.
      We're sorry your pilot didn't follow international standards of fighter intercept protocol.
      We're sorry his aircraft recognition skills were so poor he didn't realize the EP-3 aircraft was propeller driven and flew his aircraft through its propeller arc,destroying his aircraft and nearly killing 24 American crewmen.
      We're sorry your fighter pilot's survival training and equipment was so inadequate that he couldn't survive until your poorly trained and equipped navy could find him (they turned down our offer for search and rescue assistance).
      We're sorry you violated international law and arrested the crewmen of an aircraft that legally diverted into your airfield under emergency conditions caused by your pilot's actions,after being led there by one of your other pilots.
      We're sorry you violated international law and boarded a state aircraft.We're sorry the world is now seeing you for the enemy of freedom, truth,and democracy that you really are.
      We're sorry you see yourself as a superpower when in reality you are a third world nation (the average Chinese worker earns less than $.10 a day).We're sorry you are loosing so much face over this.
      We're sorry that you were able to steal some missile and nuclear secrets from us.
      We're sorry you haven't learned from the Soviet Union's collapse and failed to embrace democracy and capitalism (compare tiny Taiwan and mainland China; same people, same culture, but Taiwan's capitalistic economy is a powerhouse and China's economy is still mired in communism).
We're sorry for the future Chinese military deaths that will occur when we retaliate for your roughish behavior.
      And most of all, we're sorry for the Chinese people who suffer its leaders' incompetence.

      P.S. If a speed boat goes out to inspect a cruise ship and they collide,who do you think is at fault?

Larry there is simple solution to this hostage crisis; George W. should contact Wal-Mart Home Depot and every big importer of Chinese junk and tell the Chinese broker that as of now not one ###### penny will be ordered for export until our service people are returned !!!!!

I kinda think that was done____under the table. I will bet even money that eventually the Chinese will also pay for the damage to our plane, only you'll never hear about it. It sad to see how stupid the Chinese Gov't is. They could have really used this incident to their advantage in the World arena, could have really made themselves look modern instead of the same old B.S.
