Sell out Taiwan for debt forgiveness Possibly the most vile NY Times Op-Ed ever
Legal Insurrection ^ | 11-11-11 | William A Jacboson

Posted on 11/11/2011 3:13:55 PM PST by Kolath

Although scholars of the history of the NY Times Op-Ed pages may be able to find a more vile Op-Ed, I dare them.

From Paul Kane, a suggestion that the United States sell-out Taiwan to China in exchange for forgiveness of $1.14 trillion in debt, To Save Our Economy, Ditch Taiwan.

Well we are talking about the NY Times. As we all know they will do and say anything to tear America down and hurt anyone who is for freedom. Sad how they developed into this propaganda outlet like this.

How about sell liberals into slavery in China as payment for the debt?

I’d say we could sell the new york times to the chinese, but they already own it.

On the other hand I wouldn't be surprised to see that China uses our debt to them to screw up the currency market right before they invade Taiwan. Crash a few major American banks and then invade Taiwan when the only thing on the news is "Banking Crisis: Day 12".

I’d trade the NYT and its staff to the Chicoms for no payment whatsoever.

Yeah send the NY Times staff and other liberals to China to use as slave labor. Though they’re probably only worth a couple of cents each.

History will not look kindly on a United States that abandons either Taiwan or Israel to the barbarians.

Can’t believe the guy who wrote the op-ed is a former Marine. What kind of people are they taking in the military these days?

Your Question: "What kind of people are they taking in the military these days?"

Answer: Gays, Transgenders, and others who shall remain nameless.

Were either of these countries part of the Multi-National Force fighting alongside America in Iraq?

Thanks Kolath.

Paul Kane — sell-out Taiwan to China in exchange for forgiveness of $1.14 trillion in debt, To Save Our Economy, Ditch Taiwan.

From the article:

Mr. Kane identifies himself as “Paul V. Kane, a former international security fellow at the Harvard Kennedy School, is a Marine who served in Iraq.”

With good editing and selective reporting, Benedict Arnold could describe himself as a hero, also.

Sadly... no “sellout” will be needed.. I doubt seriously if any POTUS, even a Republican one, would risk a carrier battle group to the defense of Taiwan.

We know Zero sure wouldn’t and I’m not convinced in any way that Romney would either. He would get a nasty telegram from Bentonville, AR and then say “we can’t offend our friend China by denying them their rightful territory”....

at least we know how the slimes values freedom:
=1,140,000,000,000/23,036,087(population of taiwan) = $49487.57

lets take up a collection to raise $50k and deprive Pinch of his.

We can use the leftover as seed money to add krugman as a pinch’s cellmate

Seems to get even worse when they transfer that to civilian life.

The IDF was and is active in Iraq. Taiwan also supported military action in Iraq. Neither were listed on the Coalition of the Willing for diplomatic reasons.

Significance? because many in the so-called "Coalition" and/or MNF pulled out on the USA and/or turned on the USA in terms of public approval/disapproval of ops in Iraq.

At a dinner party one night, a drunk man asked an attractive woman whether she would sleep with him for a million pounds. “Maybe,” the woman said coyly. “Would you sleep with me for one pound?” the man then asked. “Of course not, what kind of woman do you think I am?” the woman responded indignantly. “Madam, we’ve already established what kind of woman you are,” said the man, “now we’re just negotiating the price.”

We also know what kind of person would sell out the people of a free country to communists for cash.

Honestly, I’d think the Taiwanese SS would have a concern for their national security unless they address the people writing this stuff at the NYT.

It means it is Federal law that the u.S. aid and support the defense of Taiwan.

Federal law that would require repealing before we could “turn over” Taiwan, which we can not do because we do not own Taiwan.

Of course this is all predicated on someone such as the dummy that is spouting this nonsense actually having the ability to understand those two highly complex issues.

Required to defend by existing Federal law.

Not “ours” to “turn over.”

BTW, I wonder if the genius that wrote the article did it on a computer... and knows where most of the motherboards and hard drives come from these days.

Probably not...

Federal law that the u.S. aid and support the defense of Taiwan.

Yet the Feds can't or won't even protect or secure it's own borders.

Magnificent bull sh*t.

So the answer is no
No, that doesn't make the answer "no".

What's your point?
