with an advance age of at least 4,000.
In fact, it is not A King, but an extended
royal family, consist of the royal couple and their offspring
branched out from the roots.

Ever wonder how many thousand-year old unique
indigenous trees called Chinese gingko existed in China?
That's a lot of guardians and protectors for Chinese nation

activists, such a Liu Xiaobo who fanatically supports the
of Iraq and publicly declared that China should be colonised
and ruled by the West as well for at least 300 years in order
to completely root out the Chinese culture.
Liu Xiaobo and those beside of him and behind
of him, including the Mistress of the American House Nancy
Pelosi, please keep dreamin'.
