They are choking themselves.

What if, say, China’s hidden purpose was to destabilize Western economies for political ends?

I’m not saying that’s the case, but… what if?

I AM SO SCARED !!!

How is that a reflection of concern of the U.S.’ military expenditure? You make it sound like the U.S. would take a loss with their sales of weapons. Any educated American citizen could tell you that the government has been way in over their heads in the past decade on military spending with tax-payers’ money while ignoring the increasing number of homeless and hungry people back at home. The only way for these two country to thrive is by working together covering each others flaws and losses. So sick of these so called “dissidents” like yourself taking whatever jabs you can find to the country where you are “born and raised”.

The U.S. Congress has totally lost my support. They are now pointing fingers instead of working together. After catastrophes, it is normal for people to pull together. But no, Not Our Congress! Do they not know what they have done?!

Here China wants ‘international oversight’ of financial contracts (borrowing money) that our sovereign country enters into. That is a hostile position. If they didn’t feel safe loaning money, then they shouldn’t have loaned money. They take risks, just like everyone else. And a communist regime proposing international control of the finances of a democratic republic is absurd. They just want to squeeze every dime out of us and are upset that they cannot keep the yaun artificially inflated. Yes, we left our doors unlocked, but it doesn’t mean that they can walk in and start telling us what to do. If they do that, they may as well kiss the loans goodbye.

Now, I have more important things to do, than watch these college educated idiots in congress strut around blaming each other for their own ineptitudes. That IS the new generation taking over folks. What was that about college degrees? It makes for a better workforce? Not. It just gives monkeys a leg up.

They need to send the surpluses out of their system in order to keep the Yuan cheap.

It is very unlikely for China to dump their Treasuries, it will only create Dollar inflation and more pressure on the Yuan. Looks that the US is on its way to reduce deficits and balance budgets and that equalls less Tresuries for China to buy so it will be more difficult to keep the Yuan cheap.
