I just hope there is someone left in this administration that will explain to that dumbass what stepping on this particular anthill will set in motion. It's incredibly easy to not get in a shooting war with China but Dotard is dumb enough to do the one thing that will cause it.
 
2018-03-20 06:50:42 PM  
Yeah, Xi, start a war over Taiwan.  Watch all that sweet trade money go down the shiatter.  I mean, if you don't CARE about being an economic superpower, well, then, rock on with your bad self.

I really don't know who is left in this administration. I was too comfortable in my assumption that "people smarter than I" are prepared for more contingencies than it occurs to me to imagine. I believe that some such people have already attempted to explain the facts of life to Trump, and he ignores them or he fires them. Who is in charge of the future defense and well being of the USA? I don't mean who can loudly claim that they are, I mean who is actually up to that job. Trump sure as hell is not, nor is anyone he is likely to appoint. Congratulations, so-called Republicans, you have us all at the edge of catastrophe.

Been saying it since day one. China is the test, not Best Korea. Obama was damn good about sending the USN into the region to ensure international boundaries....Dumpy, not at all, and China will use that as a springboard.
 
2018-03-20 10:14:16 PM  
We have a whole bunch of potential flash points with China now... Taiwan, North Korea, South China Sea, SE Asia, and US / China trade.  It is a dangerous time for both the US and China.

We can all marvel at how China has pretty much taken over production of the worlds gadgets in the last 15 years but many of the heavy hitters in that space were spawned as joint ventures between Taiwanese incumbents and the Chinese government. I give it another 20 years before they have diluted that outside investment to the point of not throwing themselves into an instant recession if they overplay their hand with Taiwan.

Thankfully the President of the United States has the patience, forethought, wisdom, experience, emotional divestiture, and the most knowledgable people in advisory positions, to make sure that this won't escalate.

And removing even the illusion of democracy is bad for business, I bet investors are already nervous. If their economy stutters (caused by idk the collapse of best Korea) the only thing he'll be able to do is buy treasuries as an excuse to manipulate the currency and try to keep Chinese exports cheaper than the competition. But labor costs are already rising in China... so it goes

If there's something worth a shooting was with the PRC, it might be the RoC. Letting them bully a smaller, vibrant democracy is unacceptable, and we need to make very clear that an attack on Taiwan will be meet with force.

If they are allowed to quash Taiwan they way they have Hong Kong, it will have incredible ramifications. For starters, they'll tighten their grip on the international waters in the South China Sea. It will also set a dangerous precedent that we'll see play out in areas like Africa where they have a growing presence.

America likes to talk a big game about protecting democracy. Taiwan is where the rubber really meets the road.

Trumpnut given truth serum...

Who is Xi? This some sort of #chingchong conspiracy now? I'm sick of these serious geopolitical stories, hacking, and Russia, and Kushner grifting. That's not what I voted for.

I voted for President David Dennison. I want the porn star, Playboy, and attempted rape stories! We Trumpnuts voted for a cheap smutty tabloid celebrity president. This is exactly what we wanted, and we knew there'd be more juicy smutty stories instead of this boring useless political crap. Stop covering it up with nonsensical news!

And yes, this is way way better than the gay black president who was imported from Kenya and wore lipstick and dresses on the weekends in the White House basement and sent a body double to church on Sunday. FACT. liberals just hate facts.

Now let me lick those liberal tears. Yes we are all Eric Cartman.

If there was a reason for poking China in the eye, at this point, over this issue, we could discuss the pros and cons of it. But stigginit for the sake of stigginit is really, really stupid foreign policy. Par for the course for Republicans.

It would be something to see Democrats bending over backwards in praise of China. Their kneejerk hatred of Trump and general disdain for America being what it is.

Trump has already praised China numerous times, more times than he's criticized them for IP theft. He's congratulated Xi for becoming a dictator. No one needs to praise China in order to dislike the idea of ordinary working Americans paying more for made in China products - it's a protectionist and regressive tax that will just make everyone poorer. It's not like suddenly we're going to start making a bunch of electronic and electrical products and equipment in the U.S. just by putting an import duty on Chinese made products.

Even worse, imagine that and the fact that Trump is the candidate you supported. If not directly then by blind allegiance to a totally corrupted Republican party. Because Hillary's e-mails or something. That describes the position that more than 2/3s the military took on election day. I can't say what it is now.

I'm confident China will repatriate Taiwan, & I'm confident it will be no time soon.  Take Taiwan today & tactically lose a naval war & lose all trade.  Give it 14 years of continual MAGA, Merica splits itself into Libruls vs. Pro-Putin, & Xi gets invited in so he can Make Taiwan Great Again.

Taiwan is more Chinese than that communist forced-atheist gulag that used to be called the Republic of China.

Understanding that China is far too formidable an adversary to be dealt with by a senile toddler like Trump is hardly "Bending over backward in praise".
Stating that a toddler shouldn't be dealing with a rattlesnake isn't "praise" of rattlesnakes.
It's merely stating the obvious. Same as pointing out that he's using Trump as his personal yo-yo does not constitute "praise" of Putin.
Trump is a chump, and easy for vulgar, venal con-men to run like a dog. It's one of many reasonswhy the stupidest third of America made a dreadful mistake when they accidently cheated him into office, and are going to pay a terrible price for their stupidity.
One does not have to be praise-worthy to take advantage of a bum like the Oragutantrum.
Wow - how f**king stupid can anyone who still supports that piece of shiat be?

Most of America's worst enemies have adopted a strategy of aiding and abetting Trump in any way they can, and helping him loot and destroy our country ASAP.
