impressive as hell, although i'm surprised the chinese fell for his rather heavily accented mandarin...:biggrin:

moreover i'm sure there were plenty of harrowing moments for Lt Li even from his own side. it'd take one twitchy private thinking "infiltrator!" and there'd be a nasty "friendly" fire incident.
