Why invest money in your own infrastructure and new technologies?, screw improving the quality of life for your citizens when you can spend trillions on foolish wars and give the rest away to undeserving countries, wake up America, take your #$%$ country back!!!!

They're developing trains that go 375mph while we can barely keep Amtrak operating, much less on time. Hmmmm.

I rode twice on the Chinese high speed train for about 1 hour each time an speed up to 200 miles per hour, at a cost of about $20. I enjoyed it. It was better than air travel, more room and without the security hassle.
I wish it would be available in our country. Unfortunately, it will not and not because we are not smart enough, it's because our political system, inefficient and corrupted.

I've ridden the HSR from Putian to Xiamen, China. Business Class seat $6.00 usd. Smooth as glass, quiet. Our US trains systems are stone age in comparison and ridiculously over priced.

Why on earth would the U.S. build something that is efficient and fast? The U.S. will jump on technology that would cost twice as much and three times longer to build. The U.S. has the most debt in the history of mankind, you don't get that title by being efficient.

Speed trains will ruin the airline industry, that's the reason why US is hesitant to build high speed trains. Big corporations rules in this country. If high speed train will travel from San Francisco to Los Angeles in a matter of two hours and airplane about an hour plus an extra hour of staying at the airport, train is more practical with a sightseeing view....agree???

I was just in Japan and took its trains. The Japanese trains were amazing; clean, efficient, and on time (I have an atomic watch and the trains run with in 1-2 seconds). I have also ridden Chinese mag-lev trains...wow!

It is so painfully obvious that we are on the fast track "backwards" !!

China is the next super power unless we start investing in new technology and take risks like them!

Safety is obviously important, but seriously, the article implies that China is suffering from unique problems all due to fast rail service. We actually have lots of train collisions in the U.S. (more than China) with our slow outdated trains.
