Red Menace Fails Significant Test

There is a lot of guff spoken these days about how the rise of China to global prominence threatens the United States' role as the world's sole superpower. As the following photo and caption from the BBC website shows, much of this concern is overstated:

Babies disguised as pandas take part in a crawling contest in a Hong Kong shopping mall.

Call those panda disguises? They are bloody awful. They look nothing like the photo example in the background, which in turn looks nothing like a panda. Utter crap; poor show, Chinese babies. These are quite obviously human infants, not baby pandas. Nothing to fear there, I'd venture.
