    Anything that helps to weaken the regime from the inside has to be a good thing. On the other hand, isn't this how the zombie plague starts to spread?

    Why do you think the MGM Casino in Vegas changed their lion entrance? To cater to Chinese gamblers. And in the 90s, when they changed the entrance, Chinese mayors/party officials were streaming to the US with millions in embezzled cash.

    My people like to gamble. Macau is out for these embezzlers: it's under Chinese rule (or was soon going to be, at the time, so their records would be in the hands of Chinese officials). Monaco has one great casino, but it's not someplace that Chinese bumpkins feel comfortable. Vegas now has a quarter of their dealers learning Mandarin Chinese just to cater to the Chinese gambler.

    Shit, if you walk around Vegas a bit, you can spot them. The Chinese guys with the bad haircuts, the $10,000 suit, sweatsocks, and the Rolex knock-offs are pretty obvious when you know what you're looking for. I saw one of those poor saps get picked up by a gorgeous black hooker a few years ago. I'm convinced he got rolled by her within the hour.
