Read any recent headlines and you’ll probably see something about “poison toys from China” or “contaminated food from China” or any other number of China-hating shit. Yeah, China is on the US shit list. Why? Peep this article posted a couple weeks back at CounterPunch.org and you might get a better sense of the whole situation. Its a lot of economics talk, but basically, the US is trying to do what its done for decades now: bully other countries into making financial moves that benefit Uncle Sam. The things is, America has dug itself into such a financial hole (that whole multi-trillion dollar deficit thing) and has borrowed money from China for so long now that our economy is completely dependent on them. Shit, a lot of things are dependent on them. If China started selling off all those US bonds that they have, the value of the dollar would take a nosedive. It might not be all that bad though. We’d be broke, so I’d think the war would be over because we wouldn’t have any money for it; which would work out nicely since it seems the Democrats have no intention of stopping it (the Democrat controlled Congress actually voted to increase money for the War. Weren’t they elected to end it? Weird).
Ultimately, China has sent a message that they aren’t going to be bullied, especially by someone who has so much to lose by picking a fight. So question all the anti-China shit that you might continue to hear about. The Chinese aren’t the ones to blame for America’s problems, Washington is.
