Thanks to the trillions of dollars that the Chinese have made flooding our shores with cheap products, China is now in a position of tremendous economic power. So what is China going to do with all of that money? One thing that they have decided to do is to buy up pieces of the United States and set up "special economic zones" inside our country from which they can continue to extend their economic domination. One of these "special economic zones" would be just south of Boise, Idaho and the Idaho government is eager to give it to them. China National Machinery Industry Corporation (Sinomach for short) plans to construct a "technology zone" south of Boise Airport which would ultimately be up to 50 square miles in size. The Chinese Communist Party is the majority owner of Sinomach, so the 10,000 to 30,000 acre "self-sustaining city" that is being planned would essentially belong to the Chinese government. The planned "self-sustaining city" in Idaho would include manufacturing facilities, warehouses, retail centers and large numbers of homes for Chinese workers. Basically it would be a slice of communist China dropped right into the middle of the United States.

I tend to agree. I'm not xenophobic by any means but I have a feeling that they will bring nothing but trouble in the long run. Will this be a closed/gated community?

Yeah I wouldn't worry too much. The sheer amount of xenophobic rednecks in this town and state would find a way to put a quick end to any invasion, economic or otherwise. Hell, I see at least 5 trucks with loaded gun-racks in the back windows on the way to work every day.
But maybe the Chinese dumping some money into the state wouldn't be a bad thing- Idaho is pretty godawful... Bottom of the 50 states for schools I think, definetly the bottom for Daycare standards. The roads are garbage and there are NO TREES. Unless you go to the mountains, that is.
The whole state looks just like Kuwait. Brown, dusty and windy.
