Nat!!! Are you being naive, racist, blind or just utterly nationalistic when you write this?
CHina is producing one million engineers a year. China has got thousands of years of scientific development. FOr instance the CHinese invented gun powder in the 5th or 11th century AD http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunpowder#History
) and a lot more http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Chinese_inventions
A major difference between China and the Western world now is the investment in education, and as I said before the support of decisions, and the education system. Of course this comes from a long Confucianist tradition where the teachers and the elderly are highly respected.
A country that is investing more in its army (US) or police (France) than in its eduction is on the road to ruin.
