Just more tough talk, and a lot that is going around lately. Let them saber rattle to their hearts content. If I remember correctly from history did
not Japan have the same rhetoric as the Chinese now? They pushed their weight around a little here and a little there, and before long all trade with
the US was suspended. Japan responded with Pearl Harbor and the rest as they say is history.
If the US was smart they would tread very carefully going forward, and that goes for the Chinese as well. All the Chinese are doing is trying to coax
the US into action or provocation. With that, I believe the US had ought to take the same initiative.Lets have a national staring contest and see who
blinks first. It is blatantly obvious the Chinese are straddling the realm of another Cold War. From cyber attacks on the infrastructure in the US,
rampant espionage, pushing weight around in the Pacific, venomous rhetoric, making friends with opponents to the US, resource grabs in Africa, and
many other troubling activities. Time to draw the line in the sand and let the chips fall where they may.
To be honest, the Chinese are a formidable foe and certainly one to be mindful of. This could very well be the early stages of the United State's
darkest hour? The walls are closing in, and a lot of it has do with astronomical deficit spending to go along with serious lapses in its principles.
Furthermore, unbalanced trade agreements is another reason for the woes being felt in the US.
Do the people of America have the grit and the perseverance of their parents and grandparents during World War II? Will everyone be willing to put
aside their petty pursuits to come together and face the Chinese or any nation should the need arise? Will America's friends come to its aide if the
need presents itself? Serious soul searching and reflection is in order now more than ever if the US is going to salvage the prestige it once had and
more or less survive. All is not lost, but some serious trials and tribulations are on deck. The shots have been fired over the bow. Will the
politicians heed the warnings and read the tea leaves? Will the American people see it as well? The chickens have come home to roost! Tough days
