I don't think China allows it's generals to give out top-secret information and if he did it without their knowledge he is most certainly dead
I think China makes far too much money off of America to want to see it ruined. If they are having mass population problems I'd see them eliminating
alot of their own population before killing the cash cow.
China used to make a ton of money off of the U.S., and, yes, currently they still are. If you only look at actual transactions for consumer goods
they would be idiots to let anything happen to us. But, the times they are a changing!
China actually wants to cool down their growth a bit. We means they can afford fewer sales for awhile.
Additionally, they are starting to dump our treasuries. That means that not only are they not as worried about propping up our debtor economy as a
marketplace as they were in the past, but they are also increasingly worried about our ability or willingness to pay. It looks like their cash cow
has already dried up.
How soon they make real moves to come for us depends largely imho on what we do.
If we don't interfere in their other plans they won't mess with us too much. Why take on a fight you don't have to?
But we need to get our house in order here at home.
Also, oddly, I increasinly think I might know you in real life: if not one of my friends makes all the same arguments you do and phrases similiarly.
By any chance do you have and regularly use two middle initials, that match???
