China for many years has been keeping their currency under valuated in order to get the most for their cheap imported goods.

US is very aware of this fact.

For years US has been trying to influence China to change, but no success, now China have enough leverage to come back and bite US in the butt when things doesn't go Chinas way

China is now our biggest loaner, is threatened to use the so-called “nuclear option,”

In one shot China can collapse the dollar at will . . .

They can now influence which wars US will fight and what policies to implement for their benefit.

And our morons in government goes along with it.

That option is now on the table after recently several high ranking Chinese officials threatened to use the so-called “nuclear option,” the liquidation of their U.S. holdings, to counteract current pressure from U.S. congress over the Yuan. Such liquidation could cause the dollar to plummet in value and threaten to seriously destabilize the American economy.

For all America’s military spending, it is defenseless against this “nuclear” threat.

Why are we allowing this to happen, it's this the mission of the US to become Dependant on nations that hold our debt to rule our nation?

Presently America does not regulate the amount of debt foreign governments can purchase, allowing countries to accumulate greater and greater amounts of bonds with each passing day. Foreign nations now hold a staggering 44 percent of U.S. debt, a powerful leverage against American interests.

For now this “nuclear” threat is limited to policy regarding China’s currency- but could easily extend to an array of other policy issues in the future.

It is the ultimate loss of sovereignty- a nation unable to do the things that are in its best interest or choose the wars it thinks it needs to fight to protect itself.

what goes around comes around.
living on credits for so long above their income, what did you expect ?
consume now, pay later. well, china is growing with rapid speed, cheap labor is the keyword, but it still will take ages for the chinese population to reach the living standards like the u.s. has got. so still the u.s. is so much richer than china. if you collect every valuable thing (cars, houses, land etc.) just everything from every american citizen and do the same thing to all chinese citizen, which pile you think is bigger ? even china has 3-4 times more people, still the u.s. pile would excel. i mean all things: washing machine, dryer, electronics, food, furnitures, carpets, arts, gold, silver, diamonds.
i hope you get my point, china is in a good position, but only on paper, not in goods and private properties.

Not really, the banking family cartel PTB is still in control & still owns a majority stake of the debt.

Now if they need a scape goat, china will make a good one.

China has very vast investments in Iran, I believe that the only reason US is not now in Iran is the influences of China over US financing wars with them buying the debt.
