2012 is stamped with the majestic Loong 龍, Chinese
Dragon, the defender of the planetery civilization.
China's stamp collectors love this year's dragon design
and queue up in freezing weather condition to purchase the

When China Dragon opened its teeth-missing
mouth grinning widely in the west direction in 1988, it lost
its clout, and by the time the snake year sneaked in, it
found itself becoming the hostage to CIA
and its local allies and constituencies who led the
movement to occupy the dragon den, the Tiananmen
Square, on the behalf of the
eagle on the Capitol Hill.
Two dozen years have passed, and now the Capitalist
Wall Street and Capitol
Hill War Mongers decide to try the old trick again.
But watch out, in
2012 China Dragon appears rather audacious with a mouthful
of teeth (and fangs too!) and is squarely facing up to
the world. It maybe have recalled its heavenly assigned
mission on earth: to be the protector of Chinese nation,
instead of being the pet of manchus, or Japanese, or Americans.
