One can never maintain super power status with a rotting economy, Trillions in debt and yearly deficits of Trillion+.

We better wake up to reality soon otherwise we will follow the road to demise ala the Roman Empire, the Third Reich and the USSR.

It is complete idiocy to borrow from China to protect oil supply lanes to China in the straits of Hormuz. Since we can never pay the principal, we are forever in servitude to foreign lenders.

Instead of asking; “Where are the carriers?”, the prez will ask; “Where are the drones?”

Yes, to continue our ‘progressive’ domestic policies we must shift our military operations to client states, like every ‘progressive’ country does.
Just as the Romans paid for ‘bread and circus’ by contracting with the barbarians for miltayr operations.
They get the benefits and share with us- until we weaken enough that they don’t have to.

Borrowing from China to defend their oil is baffling. But more accurately we ae defending their oil so we can borrow from them to provide welfare. I saw today that China doesn’t even have a strategic reserve of oil. They are very sure of our intentions apparently, at least until they use their profits from us to build their own fleet.

Your post is a good one, but I don’t think we borrow from China anymore.

Baraq just has Geithner (or Jack Lew) make it and Bernanke buy it.
