Beware of China

Chinese Secret Deals Fueling Mideast War

An interesting Timesonline article indeed! Sitting back and in the shadows are our Chinese "friends" who sport Elvis hairstyles. While the dust flies with Israel, Lebanon, Hezbollah, Syria and Iran, our next great future superpower patiently waits...and plans.

The bigger threats from China are the percentage of our national debt that China holds and our trade deficit. China could break our economy quite easily by calling in their markers, stop buying U.S. debt and imposing tariff on imports/exports.

China is like a crack dealer that is lending us money to buy his product. The bill will be due when we are in the least position to pay it.

I totally agree with Yankee. *gasp*

Yes, Cranky, this is an ominous problem.

I like how UL sighs because the fact is the party he supports sold out to China.

The US is owned by China and the US relies on all oil transactions taking place in $, if it switched to Euro it would collapse in on itself and that's how many nations want to deal in oil.

I can't wait.

No, no, Daniel. Let me speak for myself. You don't know squat about me.

I sigh because it is an ominous problem...just what I wrote. Nothing more. If you knew more history, you'd realize that this has been a problem with the U.S. government, whether run by Dems or Repubs. Clinton did the dance too.

As to you really wanting the fall of the U.S. and all that would entail, I must now deal with you as I would with any enemy.

It's a tough call, I love America you see, like that older brother who always punched me on the arm and never told me he loved me.

I want it to be great, again but I just see trouble and poor fiscal policy.

I see trouble too, including our national debt. By the way, if an American hasn't said thank you, thanks to you and your government for foiling that terrorist plot.
