    Same to you. I just hope they don't involve free trade, since you don't know what it is

Were they invited to join in these talks and declined, or were they not invited for some reason, since maybe they have their own agreements in place?

    Good evening, Polgara.
    China was excluded. The TPP is important to Asia's other countries as an anchor for the U.S. as a counterweight to China.

    I can't believe the forum is against this job outsourcing bonanza! Why won't you all think of the poor Chinese laborers who need your jobs!

    How many times must you remind me that targeting civilians in warfare is a deeply held principle of yours.
