Well this is true, but since Hillary Clinton went to China in 09, she made them promises that we will have to keep, and that includes imminent domain if we are not able to pay them back, this is the stipulation that keeps them buying US treasuries..It is not talked about in MSM. But she had to do this to keep them buying. This is what they dont want you to know.
One other thing, they know if the US money is no good or is only worth 10 cents on the dollar, they will lose money, this is why they had to have a guarantee from the US that they would pay back at the rate they want. This will cause us many heartaches if the debt is not paid back to them on their terms. We will lose vast expanses of land, cities, businesses etc.edit on 20-9-2011 by SweetT because: (no reason given)
Another idiot spreading disinfo. Prove it or stfu. As what your asserting would be an act of outright treason if it was proven to be true.

Here's the way I'm reading this.
The most comforting factor is that if America fails China falls too.
I've read this same point pit in a number of ways and the outcome seems to be generally welcomed.
Hello people. You are wishing upon yourself exactly what China wants. Russia is salivating at their lips. There will be a 'free for all' when America stumbles. (Think past NK - start thinking Sth American, African, Australian resources etc etc - and it's not just China going crazy at these hopes. It's been going on for a full generation).
So, you BEST plan is actually the worst case scenario.
Think about it.

U.S. and EU nations simply need to band together and block China off completely from trading with us. Total Western trade embargo on China.
I do not think even China wants US to stumble. India sure wants to partner with US but has been historically shunned. I think the issue is economic adjustment. There are serious imbalances, which need to be addressed without causing much dislocation in the world economy. So far US has taken the traditional approach - throw money at the problem, without fixing the underlying cause. I think US need to take a one time hit and restructure just like a corporation would have done. Postponing hard decisions may hurt worse later.

As an aside
When the GFC hit Indians were dancing in the streets of Melbourne - no not your ordinary Indians but a wave of recent arrivals, holding dodgy visa's from Punjab who went to arbitrarily accuse all white of people of being racist. It turns out these people hold sway, as Indian media fully backed them. That's one hell of a corrupt country there. They're held together with blind nationalism. Watch this space.
Per Businessweek: "Officials from China and Japan, the world’s second- and third-biggest economies, indicated that their support for Europe will have limits and the region needs to solve its own debt crisis. Japanese Finance Jun Azumi said in Washington today that while his nation can buy European Financial Stability Facility bonds if needed, there is no blank check. “At the margin we can do quite a bit to help,” Chinese central bank Deputy Governor Yi Gang said in a panel discussion yesterday at the International Monetary Fund in the same city. At the same time, “the real solution of the European sovereign debt crisis has to be done by Europeans themselves."
