    I don't know where you're getting this. America has massive amounts of fresh water and arable land. Our production capabilities are also prodigious.

    We don't make anything important anymore.

    It's all... MADE IN CHINA.

    Because currently it is cheaper to get it from China. If it is cheaper again to get it from American factories, production will move back that way.
    The Makeout Hobo is real, and does indeed travel around the country in his van and make out with ladies... If you meet the Makeout Hobo, it is customary to greet him with a shot of whiskey and a high five (if you are a dude) or passionate makeouts (if you are a lady).

    This thread is about China buying Siberia from Russia, or did you forget? It won't be sold, because Russia isn't going to give away their oil.

    If nothing else, Russia is looking to expand it's influence & land holdings....
    Just like the good old days.....
    Many people believe that Russia must be our friend now that they are a 'democracy'.....
    Nothing could be further from the truth......

    And yet we account for 1.277 trillion dollars of the world's exports. I guess it's because we don't make anything important that we have such a huge money worth of exports. Get your head out of your a$$. China's exports goods bought at wal-mart, USA exports good used to make China's exports possible.

    We have a lot of factories actually. If we didn't we wouldn't be ranked number 3 in the world for factories.

    And we have so many natural resources and are able to produce enough foods to feed our entire nation so we don't really need to rely on anyone else. Most nation's....no. No other country in the world can say that.

    Or natural gas or coal or large diamond reserves or large timber reserves or just the largest lake in terms of fresh water concentration. Or give away more than four million square miles of land that would be just stupid. The Russians' are not the French you know?

    You totally missed my point. Please reread my post.

    Yea, they're only the two most important things for sustaining a civilization, but whatevs...

    ...and few factories.
    The U.S. doesn’t NEED to produce a lot of things domestically; that doesn’t mean we’re incapable of it.

    We don't make anything important anymore.

    That's because they have an abundance of dirt cheap labor. It has nothing to do with their relative production capabilities. America has a level of technology and automation necessary to out-produce anyone.
