    These countries are paper tigers...they saber rattle to scare people and rouse national pride and then slink away as soon as they are even side-eyed. China would go flat broke 6 months into a war and half their military would revolt. This isn't the Cold War we actually can tell what is going on with the enemy because the people in China (or Russia or NK) tell us what is going on.

    And seriously man, if you don't want to seem like a RWNJ maybe wait a few days before you completely steal their bit. There is a reason we are all prepared for whatever "questions" you ask and it isn't because we are coordinating. It is because anyone with an internet connection has seen it already.
    China and Russia could cause massive damage with long range bombs but they don’t really have much offensive capability beyond that. I read somewhere China barely has any aerial refueling capability. And they only have one or two CSG’s.

We back off in Asia and Africa and let them run and plunder those regions the way they want to, while we continue to handle North & South American affairs, provide coalition troops when asked, and generally continue to police the world order in the Western Hemisphere.
      So ... China's already winning.

        After your buddy tanked the Trans Pacific agreement, that was kind of a given. Being a nationalist means you pull out of the world system.

        Seems like that basic info is more stuff you should already be aware of.

        • Yep, China's definitely winning. I see lots of new "traffic" cameras going up around here, and I hear they're switching us over from USD to RMB next week! After I hit the local noodle shop tonight, I'm off to my mandatory night classes in Chinese History, the philosophical works of Glorious Eternal Chairman of the PRC Mao Zedong, and Mandarin as a Second Language. 你们这些眯眼的混蛋别吓我. ;-)

            I do wish more things were made in America: Less worrying about Taiwan and a chip shortage. Jobs. Less stuff in Long Beach and LA harbors just waiting.

            And I do miss being a net exporter of energy.

                Should remind your buddies to be less greedy to search for the cheapest labor to build stuff. And to transfer ecological damage to other, poor, people.

                  I think we'd all like to have more stuff manufactured within the borders. I'm less sure TSMC is interested.

                    Here we agree.

                    Off-shoring was/is a mistake from plethora points of view (transportation, nat'l security, eco-impacts, intellectual property).

                        If things were made here they would cost twice as much. Society would break down if the fuckwits had to pay $3k for an IPhone...

                          Or are foreign things underpriced because their workers are being thrashed on payday?

                            Yeah, but it made a lot of people a lot of money. You know, those ones who don't wanna pay taxes either.
                            What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

                              Gee, maybe we could have trade agreements that do something about that. End this long-running race to the bottom.
