(ssscrrreaaam!) But Clinton!!!!.....jeez.
King Georgie II
, & Clinton, and King Georgie I before him have just been mere peddlers of a three decade old addiction called 'the Chinese consumer'. We've proven a long time ago we'd rather profit off them than free them. Our jag for China goes beyond one man, even a President.
But I will say this; Bush I's reaction to Tianenmen Square was shameful. Those kids paid America one of greatest honors in our history by building their Goddess of Freedom statue in the rough likeness of our Lady Liberty. Chinese tanks squashed it...and them. We should have cut diplomatic relations and yanked every American business venture on the spot, and leaned on the 1st World to sanction China back into the teapot age. Instead they got pithy little 'denounciations' from Washington. .
Although the North needs China, the China also needs the North. The North is their buffer between them and US-influenced, democratic and free South Korea. They have an interest in preserving the North.
You got me with Bernie & Johnny, En...not so much with Taiwan, but this comment makes no sense. China dreams
of 10 South Koreas in Asia, and it the bandleader. Robust capitalism is making a helluva lotta good Communists rich in China. North Korea is to the Chinese the equivelent of that annoying Aunt that decorum insists must be invited to the party only because she's family.
Indeed, that's one reason we're at where we're at. I think China is quite seriously fed up with the Mongolian Munchkin. Fed up feeding him, fed up powering him, fed up empowering
him. China's ready for the 21st Century, and this chubby turd is the boulder around their regional neck.
He's the ugly chick at the Asian economic party, and China's sick & tired of getting him in .
