    It also gives the Chinese control over part of the economy.

    It's a bad idea and it needs to be stopped.

    Tell the Chinese to **** off and die.
    The facts! They do nothing!

    Humvee =/= Hummer

    This sale does not give the Chinese control over anything related to the military. At best, it gives them undue influence with douchebags from jersey.

    They are only Communist if you use the definition made to vilify Communism as a whole. But that definition defines Communism as anything and everything alleged Communist countries have attempted. Which includes capitalism and democracy, thus rendering by transitive logic, the United States a Communist nation.

    China is Communist in name only. A class society, ruled by the few practicing Capitalism is not Communist. Go read up on Marx.

    On the contrary, it gives American bondholders of Hummer another source to squeeze money from when Hummer soon enters chapter 7 bankruptcy. More money for American bondholders at the expense of another country, not something I see as bad.

    You're confused, or you're ignorant. I'll let you decide which...
    Hummer carries three different products, all in their -1st- generation.

    To my knowledge it was bought mostly by city dwellers and were shown to be impractical for city life.
    Great disclaimer there...

    It became even MORE impractical during the early 2000s when gas prices sky rocketed. And finally could barely fit in a normal street lane.
    You're thinking of the H1, not the H2 or H3. The latter two models, which make up the vast majority of Hummer sales, are no larger than any other SUV/truck -- the H3 is no larger than a mid-sized pick-up or minivan.

    What exatcly was there to be proud about?
    GIven that hardly any of what you said is demonstrably factual, your question is nothing but straw.

    Humvees are made by AM General, in South Bend IN (IIRC).
    GM sold them as H1s under the Hummer label.

    The military is planning to replace the Humvee anyway, even if it were the case. The whole thing means nothing.

    I liked the Patton Oswald joke where anyone who buys a hummer gets clubbed in the back of the head and wakes up in Iraq...

    "Yeah, man, you can buy a hummer...but you have to go get the oil yourself."

    People who drive hummers are subhuman scum, they should be paraded through the streets, Chinese revolution style, wearing dunce caps and carrying signs proclaiming their idiocy so we can all throw rocks at them.
    And why does your tone suggest that you do not care about children?

    You're just scared of the proposed H4 and it's revolutionary new flex fuel system powered by diesel and pureed hipsters.
