China cancels military contacts with US in protest


wiredispatch.com

China has abruptly canceled a series of military and diplomatic contacts with the United States to protest a planned $6.5 billion package of U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, American officials told The Associated Press on Monday.

Beijing has notified the U.S. that it will not go forward with several senior level visits and other cooperative military-to-military plans because of the sale, which was announced last week, Pentagon and State Department officials said.

Huge news are running, when everybody is looking to financial strorm, and its changes.

Selling arms now to Taiwan is a clear provocation, and China has make the same than Russia sis with US provocation at Georgia.

So. Russia and China has no cooperation with US. Where do you think US wil get any loans to safe their economy now? They are running out of friends, and when oil is cheaper every day, soon Arabic countrys start to look only their own interests... Where you loan when Euro is loosing its value fast?

I think provocations are now high on US maniac government, where they see only one option to end this crisis: With another.

This story probably isn't that big of a deal. When I first saw it, I was taken aback also, but then I thought about it. We've been selling weapons to Taiwan for a long time, and even once in a while China makes a big deal about it. Same as how every once in a blue moon we will complain about their human rights record or oppressive government.

China is just as tied in with us economically as anyone else. More so even. If we fall, they will eventually fall. My dad, who is a pretty astute observer of the economy, told me that his opinion was this bail out was more or less to pay off debts owed to China and Saudi Arabia. Both of those countries were also packaged large amounts of these CDS's or whatnot.

So China is probably just pissed off at being owed a lot of money (and being robbed also) by the corrupt and greedy and possibly soon-to-be bankrupt American capitalist military-industrial-government complex and are rattling their large sabre.

I do think though that Taiwan is none of our business. Having the United States cease to be Team America: World Police is also a high priority of the next government.

Absolutely.

Then you have Russia selling weapons and doing joint maneuvers with Venezuela... the whole thing with Georgia...

It's a friggin' mess and all we can seem to do is fan the flames.

We wanted the Chinese and the Russians not to sell weapons to Iran. Did they listen to us? Nope.

So now when the US does the same exact thing we are the bad guys???

Interesting... interesting indeed.

Perhaps we should change "Don't Tread On Me" to "Please, Tread On Me AS Much As Possible."??

Yes we don't want Iran with weapons from Russia or China, but Iran is a recognized country, where as Taiwan is NOT, not even by the U.S.. We suspended formal diplomatic contact with them under Reagan so we could start selling weapons to China, which is probably alot more of a money maker. Also, since both Bush's, and Clinton followed suit, we are not in a position to piss off the Chinese, soldier for soldier, person for person were better off, but we are on the verge of a macroeconomic collapse, with the E.U. as the best per capita now and the Chinese with the largest total economy we may want to rethink some of our decisions.

Things are always changing.
Maybe one day, your weapon will become property of an united China.
