By: TheOldSodbuster Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:52:37 +0000 First this disclaimer, I confess a love for ancient Chinese thought, and I know that modern China is not ancient China. My firm did a little trade with China in the 80’s, and I have studied China since.

The US State Department since the ‘W” Bush era has seemed inept and visonless in my opinion, and this whimper list is an example. Whom, with any integrity at all could make the requests listed in this article.

1) Spratly Islands: What are Our reefs doing under Their sea… When did they name that sea as theirs anyway? Isn’t it rational to have some physical resources in these dangerous seas with increased violent weather events expected? Having been a merchant mariner, I would say, Of course!
In fact I would call that responsible action, if China expects to continue trade.

2) NGO’s limited in China And the US is critical of THEIR human rights record? ! Boy, I hope we don’t harp on their prisons.

3)China Infrastructure Investment Bank displacing the World Bank. Honesty, Whose banks are out of control? and Britian, king of currency imperialism, sure stiffed the US.

4) Cybersecurity. The pot is calling the kettle… What? Do we think Snowden and the NSA went unreported in China… or what?

5) Bilateral Investment Treaty. This could go somewhere… if the US were really interested in an energy infrastructure transformation and getting off the oil standard… and petro-dollar….. some pretty huge IFs.

The reality of climate change hangs over China like a broad-axe. They must respond to it for respiratory and aquatic reasons. I have no idea what the Chinese word for Kabuki is, but US position here sure looks bobble headed.
