    And so won't we. As China falls the USA falls. As the USA falls China falls. We are so locked into China that we can't even turn around. Both countries look to be doomed as far as I can see and I'm not so sure the USA won't fall first.

    We should just give every two bit Dictator what they want.

    Especially, if it might cost us something.

    That has worked so well before.

    America has no grounds to do that since China isn't violating any agreements it was America who actually made the violation with a "diplomatic" visit by Pelosi which is illegal according to Congressional law passed by near unanimous vote in December 1978.

    An attempted blockade of Taiwan is an act of war. It'll be time to shit or get off the pot.

    A military blockade is an act of war.
