It was my take that early on the argument about the Spratley Islands should have been the time to take on the Chinese. Nobody has said no to their demands before this, so what did we expect but more adventurism?
We finance China’s ascension, and then are surprised that a rogue nation would act like a rogue nation. Many people tried to argue for going slow on China.
I am one of them. I was ridiculed here resoundingly for fifteen years because of it.
Well, the real payoff is coming folks. Enjoy.
When it really hits the fan, try to find one person who will admit supporting turning China into a super-power.
I gotta agree with this post.
We are currently importing a HUGE section of what Americans buy in every store in America, from China.
America has a very high unemployment rate, yet we keep Americans out of work, so that Chinese can hold jobs sending products back to America.
This is totally screwed up.
Bring back American jobs now.
We’ll reap the rewards of our one way economic relationship with China yet.
And you called it right
Anyone supporting Free Trade with Communist China supports Communist Chinese aggression. Not too long ago..if one supported economic aid to a Communist enemy...they were executed for treason
We have one thing that can control Communist China: Raising tariffs on the Communist Chinese. Anyone not supporting increased tariffs on the Communist Chinese...supports them
“—try to find one person” Not hard, I guess. Everyone who has a piece of Chicom made krap in their house has helped. Everyone who has hauled a piece of cheapasskrap home from Walmart has helped. And every congresskritter who’s voted for big spending/borrowing is guilty and needs to raise their hand.
In my view it’s one thing to use foreign labor, etc. to serve foreign markets but it’s quite another to make substandard krap overseas to re-import here. I’ve fought this whole re-import thing since the 1960’s and I’m still in it.
