Flying Tigers roar (less & less now)

First Mao was not a good governor, but a great revolutionist. It is Peter's Principle at work; when you promote to a position you do not qualify, you are no longer  effective.

China did express its gratitude to the USA, especially the Flying Tiger. There were some US veterans honored by the president in China - just watched CCTV-News in English. Unfortunately most have passed away by now.

On a personal note. About 20 or so years ago, I was bummed out of the best hotel (at the time) in Taipei due to the greeting of the Flying Tigers. I was furious but now I thank for what they did and they had more right to stay in that hotel than I.
