    What are you talking about? There is a **** load of natural gas, mineral, metal, and oil under that land. Once it thaws and you can easily mine it out...you'll be swimming in money. Scrooge McDuck style!

    You seem to love injustice.
    Your mind is in the wrong era.

    The Chinese could really screw us over if they wanted to. Military conflict we might be a challenge. Economic or Cyber war, and we'd be left by the road-side, bloodiest cadaver

    I'll bet it comforts you to think that's true. Get a grip, they can't screw us without screwing themselves.

    But we can screw them. They get many benefits the first world countries do not, especial reprieve for environmental concerns. I see no problem with adjusting tariffs to offset their purposeful manipulation of our currency. And if we're really worried about carbon offsets and environmental damage, we would account for that in imports. All which would hurt China.

    Bold: Please explain yourself.

    "They can't screw us without screwing themselves". Now why don't you explain this one too, while you're at making stupid comments.

    No, you'll be stuck in mud, watching miserably as a fortune bubbles away.
