Re: And just how.....

The rest of the world isn`t thrilled with China, if push comes to shove, they will side with the ultimate winner of the trade war, the US.  I think everyone better study their lesson here, if China acts this way when they are a little Bantee rooster, imagine what they`ll be if they were allowed to gain all the power that they`re on a path to achieve? 

It`s funny the media can destroy countries that it wants, depose of leaders they don`t like...if they focused on China and had flash mobs picket into of Apple and other China linked companies demanding that they divest in China, things would turn overnight.  And the "socially conscience" millennials, if they got a bug in their butts about human rights in China to the same degree they jig around about foolishness like global warming and gun control.  With their consumer clout, that would also turn on China overnight.   But apparently human rights abuses in China isn`t worth throwing their I-Phones in a bonfire out of protest.

Dont Blame China

Look in the mirror,  this is a backward USA to blame. 

Back in the day  , Japan ran a large trade surplus over the USA for decades. 

THAT eventually straightened out due to Global currency markets and other things too. 

ALL China IE their Central Bank is doing now is Exactly what Needs to get done. 

Level the total currency market to Counter the USA sales duties on exports from the USA.

Re: And just how.....

Yada, yada yada, BA.

We already lost.

A new administration might be able to recover a bit from the ruins, but the big chance is gone forever.

But we did show those durn Canadians a thing or two!

Need I mention that things could get a lot worse, probably more so than any better.

Since this is the www I suppose that somebody in Chinese intelligence monitor sites like this and I suppose I'm supposed to be "patriotic" of something. But that's just so insulting when there was never a viable plan for winning.

Re: And just how.....

You need to know your enemy going in- unless you're stupid.

China has much greater latitude to engage in fiscal stimulus to offset, stop propping up their currency etc.

You know what you get when you follow one of he world's biggest losers into the breach?

So....it’s over? I really don’t think the final Trump card has been played yet. 😉

Re: And just how.....

The Trump Administration will not materially change Chinese behavior for the better. Might for worse.

But the world economy is stalling. Good news for Democrats, I guess.

Re: And just how.....

China won`t change their behavior ...I`m not saying this as a cliche of a cliche but this display of abuse of power is on a road to actually be worse than the nazi regime.  Look at their propping up North Korea...notice how Rocketman fired off a couple missiles right at the height of China`s attempt at currency manipulation?    IMO Kim has told President Trump that he`d gladly give up nukes, but "China won`t let him".  See Kim is out there in Deep Space 9, we can`t help him, China feeds and arms him has him as their surrogate "bad cop".  If Kim doesn`t play, big brother China makes him a smear on the blacktop...if they dance to China`s tune NK may face the wrath of ICBMs compliments of the US of A, classic catch-22.   Perhaps explains Trump`s patience with him.

China`s a bad actor and Dr Phil couldn`t change them, i`m sorry soybean growers, but you get the satellite sit-rep of the layout, getting that unattainable "$12 beans" isn`t worth the price your grandchildren will pay one day with a picture of Mao in their hovel.

Worrying  about  a  picture  of Moa,  that  train  left  the  station, along  with  the  60's  Asia  boogy  man  policy - - -

Sell  them  anything  they  can't  shoot  back  at  you ,  makes  a  bit  more  sense -  -  -

Squandering  your  hand  at  the  table,  is  as  old  as  time , as  history  being  quite evident on this -  -  -

Re: Peng Dehuai

Finish the story on Peng Dehuai   ---------- since it came up.

MacArthur came home to a country that supported him for the most part as a hero.

Peng Dehuai ------ Found that worrying about the poor citizens was a mistake and when "reporting" his findings to superiors in the ruling class was arrested for not following the party line.  Mr Dehuai found that negotiating with the ruling class was futile.  A man who did not fear their power but loved and served his country.. became a prisoner of it.

It is time we stopped lying to ourselves about the virtues of the Communist powers in China.  They will never be a dependable trading partner.... and never have been.... and we don't need them.......... They have exploited Brazil to a near "take over" of the country and our international corporations deserve whatever happens to them for investing there.

Yet the worlds "socialism dreamers" continue to ignore the biggest sod busting (natural habitat) destruction the world has known for at least the last few centuries.
