    But our stuff is expensive, of bad quality, and no one wants to buy it.
    Look at Detroit.

    Re: Vladimir putin will sell Siberia t o China

    I've been wondering for years why countries stopped selling their land. We bought Alaska and Louisiana and most of our other territory back in the day. Nowadays when Mexico or Russia or Kenya needs a loan they should just sell us a new state/vacation spot instead. It seems like a much better way to build overseas bases than defending South Korea or invading Iraq, and probably cheaper too.

    Not that we have any extra cash lying around. Ironically, 70% of the people in Louisiana and Alaska would be against buying a new territory.

    Arch enemy posted (No.

    We stop consuming their products and they're ****ed. That's completely different than what's going on in Siebria. China has large companies mining *insert mineral material I don't understand here*, and nobody does anything about it.)


    True we by consuming their products have helped to make China once again the Richest country in the world.
    Where you fall flat is your supposition that the USA will somehow stop purchasing Chinese manufactured products.
    I would agree it may well be true that Chinese economy would be discomforted by such an action, but *****ed? I very much doubt.

    Contrary to popular belief, it doesn't take one to know one.
