So will we have “business as usual’ if there is a shooting war between China, North Korea vs Japan South Korea? Or does Free Trade trump all? I’ll bet the Free Republic Free Traders would deal with the Chinese similar to the deals made with the Nazi’s as depicted in book catch 22.
War happens in Asia = the whole economy collapses here. Since we get all of our stuff from Japan, Taiwan, S. Korea and China, we are sunk when the shooting starts.
Complete opposite from WW1 and WW2 when we made everything we needed and it was the combatants that needed to buy from us. We got rich off of their slug match.
And I'll bet that if "we" stopped hating on each other we just might win an election.
I’d bet my money on the Japanese vs China. The ChiComm apes nearly sunk their carrier when they practiced landings below the waterline. Blub. Blub.
Remember, the hero for the ChiComms is super-pilot Wang Wei who crashed his F-8 (Mig-21) when bozo the clown Wang Wei intercepted the American EP-3E Aries II surveillance aircraft.
Oops. Downed by a wing clip.
The military tigers in Asia, in my opinion, are the Japanese and the South Koreans.
From my experience, the ChiComm apes still haven’t discovered how to a anneal a bolt. The ChiComm manufacturing tolerance on sockets is plus or minus a quarter-inch. Don’t get me started on their crappy socket wrenches that fall apart. And don’t dare ask me about their cheap-ass chop saws unless you want to hear me bitch for two hours. Fourty-five degree angle cuts my butt.
With John Kerry as Sec. of State I feel much safer. I am sure the Un can keep the peace between the two. The war could get messy if it should get going. What did Hitler say? Going to war is like walking into a dark room, one never knows what you will bump into—or words to that effect in German. If war comes—it will not last long—and Obama will have the USA neutral as China has Neutered us with debt.
