    China and Japan have become the world’s attention, from the perspective of economy and geopolitics. Goods and services made by the two countries have been flooding the world market

    Death by a Thousand Cuts is a wonderful reading. In this form of execution, the condemned person was killed by using a knife to methodically remove portions of the body over an extended period of time. Pretty scary tactic.
