part of chinas geo political strategy according to those on this thread was to undermine the US and invest towards it's collapse, I simply highlighted that with simple US replacements and reform we would contine to remain strong, it only got off topic when certain memebers started posting misinformation and then began on an insulting campaign which needed to be adressed. IMO the contents of the current discussion on this thread is in conjunction with the original thread topic and is also in conjuction with the slogan of this website which is deny ignorance.
