the biggest arms sellers in the world are the us,russia,china.france,and the uk nice try to blame just the us tho.


I'm not saying other countries don't sell arms, I'm just saying the US sells more than any other country. I'm also saying that it isn't illegal for the US to do so. So China can stomp its feet and say "ITS NOT FAIR!!" all it wants but theres nothing they can do about it.

He said the biggest arm dealer in the world was the US and he is correct. He did not say the biggest arms dealers and another four arms dealers are.... you are not making a point... just being defensive over nothing...

I wouldn't exactly call them peaceful.

China top the list for the worlds worst genocide, around 78,000,000 since 1958. If they could do that to their own then think what they world do to the rest of the world.

They already have invaded, economically


how have they invaded economically by working hard to get themselves out of poverty...By lending the west money to help them get out of debt.....I dont get you. If you are broke and I lend you money.. Have I invaded you....


If you force me to spend that money on unsafe, unreliable products that you make then yes.

No one forces you, you vote with your dollar.. If there is a demand for these products they will be made. It is your choice. There are some amazing products coming out of china if you can afford them or not is a different thing....

I don't think that China will do anything rash at the moment. While their economy is getting stronger, it is still a long way off from being totally stable.

I worry that other Nations may take the bait and fire first. That way China has a justifiable reason to take what they want. And it'll play well on the world stage.

It's all PsyOp and that is how war is sold to the populace.

Is it really our choice when we've intentionally been made poor and have no choice but to buy cheap products?

Although China has never really been a powerful country (Atleast since before the time of European church's power) their various revolutions since the 1900 definatly put them out of the game for a while.

China was poor until they figured out they could exploit their enormous population.
