    A droid army should be built to counter them, of such army should have four arms with a lightsaber in each one.

    The chinese army should be terraccota-based and double as kids' toys.
    Then, one day, the fifth column in your house takes over.

    This is really not credible, and is not helped by the source. The Daily Star is pretty bad even by standards of UK tabloids. We are not really at the point where CRIPR can be used safely to correct know single base changes that cause serious disease. The idea that is could be used in the foreseeable future to make super soldiers is fantastical.

    An army of droids should be built upon this very mountaintop. And the droids should be numerous in count. And they will fight with the strength of ten oxen each, nay 20 oxen each. And of arms they will have four, and every one adorned with a blade of divine light. And Yesaiahs son Josefus, who had a son named Paulus, who in turn had a son named Yom, who in turn had two sons both named Anuncius, shall lead them into battle, and that battle shall be victorious, if god wills it!

    Given some of the things the US military has believed in the past that they believe it seems quite plausible.

    Man, people will believe anything if China is involved, huh?

    Really its just the military top brass looking for excuses for the ridiculous amounts of money they want to spend on stuff they will either never use or will turn out to be completely useless for the next war.

    The problem with the next war is what do you need to fight it?

    the known Chinese experiments involve a doctor who ran away after "not permitted" birth of two girls(?) who are "related" , one might be a clone of the other or whatever . His data is also missing , out of that we are to believe he has outdone Dr. Mengele's work in Brazil in the 1970s . Which was the thing that would be in use and stuff to scare or attempting to scare people .

    the men staring at goats were kinda far more real , with their LCD loaded mortar rounds and the stuff . One or two operations proved they were far more "expensive" and less "efficient" compared to regulars who didn't also come back , but it is very useful to claim superiority in anything , just like America and the bunch declare they have Alien friends , on a week Russians tested an hypersonic anti-ship missile that like covered 500 kilometers in 4(?) minutes ... And there was a Chinese claim that their ballistic carrier killing missile has been successfully tested as well ?

    I don't think China has many restrictions on this kind of experiment (who knows, maybe secretly various western countries run such too). China really is into new age bio-tech.

    Tbh, I think that if the clone can be incapacitated enough to not really count as something sentient (which probably isn't possible with current tech - unless you go butcher mode, which hopefully isn't an option), it would seriously help to have a copy of yourself to run medical experiments on so as to have data for what works on the actual "human".
    It would also provide a good comparison to notice alterations due to cognitive-based impact; though again I doubt the tech is there for this to be meaningful.
    The obvious problem is that if the copy is sentient, you are basically keeping some lobotomized+ human around to suffer so that the other version has help with their issues.
    Also interesting would be that this suffering other could very easily have been you.

    once again , those unqualified should spare the wisdom of their views . Meaning , apparently the big city reached a conclusion the Galen Erso vibe ı have been suffering this year is related to stuff , fit to be discussed in this thread , because apparently Dr. Mengele has such an attraction ? Like ı have always been accused of being a Jew , so , how this Great Nazi ever let us to learn his secrets , right ? The entire thing about my post is that the story is fake , as much as good old Nazis were talking so much in the 1960s and 70s as the allure of the German engineering started to run dry , with cloning being a section of "new" promises . Hollywood's answer , finally , was the movie Brazil . ln case ı remember correctly , it involved Hollywood victory on some conspiracy and the sequel options were kept alive with a "native" mother with her "native" child in the end , with impossibly blue eyes . Was so through that the British got away with a very old Adolf arranging Argentinians invade the Malvinas , while Americans had to resort to Aliens extenting Adolf's life to proxy Bin Ladin to attack America on 9/11 . Not a clone , check it ...

    these stories are indeed about a revision of laws that stop Westerners to deal DNA and stuff , on that level . lf the Chinese have clones , they will come and invade and America must have clones and also patent your own genes so that you will , one day , have to pay Americans to merely exist ...
