US may owe china lots of money but at the end of the day china is still reliant on the markets in the USA, just as much as the USA is reliant on them
for cheep products. The only difference is that if one fails and dominoes world wide then the USA will have an easier time adapting to a new paradigm
then china will, and there are many reasons for that but mostly because china expanded in size and need of energies to much to let this whole thing
with the USA go by the wayside. There are drawbacks to being one of the big players after all, it's not all just benefits.
And If it the current system will fall china will fell it more then the US mainland and citizens, we may be addicted to cheep stuff and lazy as
hell and the corporations may need it to keep going and to churn profits for the big players, but ultimately we could live and thrive without it.
The same can not be said of the Chinese government, corporations, and people of china, as of this stage in there being, because of there growing and
need to maintain it's size.
Ever hear of this saying. "it's not the fall that kills you its the sudden stop at the end" same can be said of the whole giant nation building
thing. And it has happened before, just look at ancient Rome or any other super powers in the past, it wasn't the fall that it felt the most and
did them in, nope it was the sudden stop at the end. So they all keep on going on, and on, because they must, if they stopped then it would not be
Really the most who stand to lose are the corporations and heads of corporations from this whole so called "balance" on the books being scraped in
favor for something else, and thats why lots of them are pushing for going to china and turning china into the new world power. I say whatever, who
give a # really, we could do with less of them around mucking things up, let them go to china and work there magic.
Anyways back on topic and to the op, people over react and assume many things no doubt your friend did as well, and if he works for the Chinese
military complex then i am sure they keep them all in line with a little hush hush and obligations as well as rules and penalties no doubt. You see
there is really not that much of a difference from any countries and nations military complex, and you can bet its all on the down low, even if it is
not a secret. And yes they all have sock puppets and people, but really who doesn't these days, you pretty much cant be a global power without the
armies of dis-info agents and bots. And they all have there secrets that are really not that secret if you just look around, and have eyes to see, and
ears to hear.
Especially considering the bigger military complexes around they are all, after all, molded after the same blueprint. And really it's simple,
lines and initiatives are being crossed and tempers tested, and though they all like to measure the size of there guns and how cool and new they
are, and especially what is in the works or has been in the works, it really is just strutting and peacocking for whatever lost cause and interest. So
there all tensing up in case # happens.
And # has a habit of happening, especially when it is produced in such massive quantities by all parties involved.
Hence the expression, the
# has hit the fan. And if it happens then everybody will be covered in do do. A stinky situation no doubt.
It's the evolved form of the
monkey pooping in its hand and throwing it around.
Yup it's all evolution, we have come far indeed.
