Chapter 8 of Mr. Tucker’s new novel 2065, which we are serializing, on China’s invasion of Pearl Harbor.
(Page 4 of 5)
“Two thousand, sir.”
“Are they ready to do battle if necessary?”
“They are ready to do battle, if necessary.”
“You, young man,” said Chen-li, turning to the young enlistee. “How long have you been in the Golden Horde?”
The young man looked at him with terror in his eyes, as if a wrong answer might immediately cost him his life.
“Three years, sir,” he finally managed to respond.
“What did you do before joining the Golden Horde?”
“I was a nuclear engineer, sir.”
“Did you work on the new reactor?”
“I was about to be deployed, sir, when I learned of the fate of Chinese women in America,” he said, beginning to get his bearings.
“And what is the fate of Chinese women in America?” asked Chen-li.
“Sir, it is horrible,” said Huang, gathering gather steam. “They are kept as slaves, made to do domestic work, kept as concubines by rich men. They beg for us to rescue them.”
“Where do you get this information?” Chen-li said, trying to keep the skepticism out of his voice.
“I have seen pictures of it, sir. My sister is among them. She was kidnapped at birth.”
Chen-li cast a sidelong glance at the image of the Prime Minister. He wondered if this wasn’t getting out of hand.

In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
