A couple days ago when I was trying to explain why I was pxxxxx off by the BBC's report about the "perceived threat" to my friend K. She not only agreed that it was not cool at all, she said she's going to write to the BBC, too. Then I went on to vent about how can missiles be 'perceived theat', or did they think that missiles are like pandas = goodwill gifts? At which point K looked really puzzled and I had to explain to her how China has been urging Taiwan to accept the "gifts". Now K lookes even more puzzled and said:
Give Taiwan pandas? To catch the missiles?
A round of applause goes to Ms. K. (papapapapa....)
