What do you think of China's private bodyguards?

The explosion of private wealth in China has been accompanied by an increase in the number of private bodyguards disguised as drivers, nannies or other household employees. They are never armed. Rather, they are martial arts experts, trained to disarm or subdue an attacker with a few quick thrusts, jabs and hand chops.

What do you think of American and western mercenaries paid billions by the Pentagon to bring havock in poor countries?

You answer my question, and then I'll see if your moronic question needs an answer.

Rosie O'Donnell has an armed bodyguard...
and no one wants to touch her even with a 10 foot pole...

The Post has reported several times about outraged Chinese citizens who have attacked police stations, government offices, and...shamefully...elementary school children with large kitchen knives. One energetic man killed and injured several Chinese policemen in a police station. He has since been executed.

If disgruntled Chinese citizens want to attack the wealthy, they likely will need more than Kwai-jin Kane to keep them safe. But good luck, Rich People. Live in fear of your neighbors if you want.

This is a look at our future. As the middle class continues to shrink and there becomes a wider discrepancy between the rich and poor, the vast majority of Americans will also find themselves desperate when they can no longer afford to provide for themselves and families. I can imagine that wealthy Americans may have to also, employ bodyguards. Just look at the attitude of Republicans wanting to give a tax break to the top wage-earners. Oh, and how will that be paid for? Yeah, just add it to the deficit. I will never understand the middle and lower income people in this country that vote against their own best interest. You are just being used as pawns in a very expensive game!

A bodyguard is good if you're dealing with garden variety crooks but if you're dealing with a gun-toting idiot, bodyguards, no matter how well trained, are totally useless.
