America was built on trade wars. That was the whole basis of America. It’s good for business.

Americans would retaliate and then they’d have a bunch of worthless T-Bills from buying US debt.

They are already developing an alternative banking system, and when that is fully functional the US is a toothless tiger. It is critical to not only be able to impose sanctions, but actually be able to enforce them.

We are less than five years from losing enforcement capability. After that we are left with our bloated military, and parading aircraft carriers off the coast when you have no realistic ability to use them will seem rather poignant.

Senior U.S. officials should emphasize that Washington views China’s threat as unacceptable and that the United States will encourage American companies to participate in the deal with Taiwan despite the threat.”

Yea, great idea! Set ourselves up for a collision course with China. That’ll be great for our fragile recovering economy.

This is definitely something that Western countries need to look into for their future well-being.
