"reply: "China's Ghost Cities""

This is very strange and brought to my mind the scripture in Isaiah that says "She will never be inhabited or lived in through all generations". 

19 Babylon, the jewel of kingdoms,
   the pride and glory of the Babylonians,[b]
will be overthrown by God
   like Sodom and Gomorrah.
20 She will never be inhabited
   or lived in through all generations;
there no nomads will pitch their tents,
   there no shepherds will rest their flocks.
21 But desert creatures will lie there,
   jackals will fill her houses;
there the owls will dwell,
   and there the wild goats will leap about.
22 Hyenas will inhabit her strongholds,
   jackals her luxurious palaces.
Her time is at hand,
   and her days will not be prolonged.

"China's Ghost Cities"

Hi John and Doves,
The minute I saw this article and accompanying photos, I thought of the 200,000,000 strong army that will come against Israel at the last day. There is no sane, economically sound reason for these cities. Where are all the "people" going to come from to inhabit them? The Chinese government are not going to give them to poor peasant folk.
Stranger and stranger.
