this is a very good indicator as to the state of their economic health. they have vast amounts of resources coupled with an infrastructure built up in communist times that did not put them in any financial disadvantage.
they have oil,gas,forests to name but a few.
i feel they have been discreet as the rest of the global community have been running around like headless chickens.
a question for you. how would you or anyone else on here feel if through default the chinese decided to sell the debts owed by the usa to russia? now if this was possible then the cod 2 scenario could very well be possible.
