    so you don't support escalation? cool. neither do i. neither does anyone else. too much money would be lost. i also don't support bellicose rhetoric, chest thumping, or dick measuring contests.

    The US will continue as we have done for more than 50 years. Any escalation will be on the Chinese.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Millions of Americans own stock in those companies and are richer. We have increased export opportunities and we are richer.

    As a long term student of China you must understand "their" view of the role of China in the world and get off the "commies conquering the world" concept. China has a goal of ruling the Pacific region, including the Philippines, Taiwan, Japan, Viet Nam, etc. That is not to say "invade" those regions but to control the areas. They are currently constructing islands as bases for missiles to discourage countries like America of clashing with them in "their" territory as they spread their influence.

    Yes. Your point would be . . . . ?

    No one but you has mentioned "commies."
