Why kill your best customers.

In June 1941 Nazi Germany's largest trading partner was the Soviet Union.

Well said.

China's been eclipsed by the War on Terror, but prior to 9/11 they were the topic around here.

Free traders don't understand that China's economy isn't about free trade, it's mercantilist and dedicated to making themselves top dog.

I'm wondering what's going to happen as energy prices go up (10% this week) ? They seem to be tweaking the nationalistic even racist tendencies of their populace, as if priming them for war. They haven't got enough women for their men, thanks to the one child policy. They're still carrying a torch over Japan's occupation.

Horney men from one-child homes, a declining economy, a strong ethnic (Han) identity, nervous political elites...
We're in for 'interesting times.'

Good observation.

It's always better to take then to trade in the mind of a thief.
