    Additionally, China (and anybody who fails to help curtail Iran) will become internationally isolated. It's time to make the corrupt assclowns in China pay for their sins.
    What do you think the tarriffs will do on our economy? It'll cripple entire sectors of it.

    A very liberal response if there ever was one.

    We have to put a foot in China's ass to make them play ball. There is no other option.

    What made it a "liberal response"?

    For obvious reasons, this is not gonna happen.

    Leaders make grand speeches in front of audiences so that the public will hear it. That's what this address is about. This isn't about calling China out, it's about saving face with Canadians. Behind closed doors, the economic policy is upheld and has been sealed for a long time now.

    China cares about the status quo. Iran has never threatened China so there's no reason for sanctions, and there is little incentive the West can provide to coerce China into doing it. China holds the cards and they know it.

    Naa...

    China can suddenly go out of business if they do not play ball. All that is needed is a good reminder.

    How do you figure?

    Do you think that investors and corporations using the cheap labor in China give a toss about the political situation in Iran? They care about making the most profit. That's what business does. Some of them might bail out on principle, but most won't. Cheap goods that fuel our North American consumerism wouldn't be possible without China.

    The relationship is mutually beneficial. If either the U.S. or Chinese markets completely crash, the other country will go under. A reminder to them is just a reminder to ourselves as well.

    Um.

    China, in response to a tariff, would just stop buying up our bonds. The US government would have to start printing money to make up the difference. China would just laugh and start selling off all its holdings of US currency.

    We'd really be shooting ourselves in the foot.
