China is a communist state and do not believe in opinions of other, however, China is in continuing progress. Greece is one of the most ancient empires in the world and announced their bankruptcy. It is peoples that govern progress not political systems or governments.,, He said ،،I compare between Egypt, Syria, and Iraq because we are all on the same ship, but Egypt jumped from the ship in the last moment.
