You said it yourself, it would make them more distant from "other asian nations". Did you actually read what you wrote? Here it is again: "
>It would get china closer to some part of the world, but again, more >distant with some other asian nations which have had strong relations >with china for hundreds (thousands?) of years.
" You keep overanalyzing things and not answering the question. SO again, i ask you, how does China using Pinyin make it more distant with some other asian nations? You never specified learning, but again, how does someone learning Chinese in Pinyin make China "More distant with some other asian nations"? Remember, that's YOUR quote.

I never said you said this and that's not what i'm asking.
