America: About to be Punished by the Landlord

The Chinese government is getting more and more irate at their pesky American tenant, and they might be retaliating soon. And the United States might be just about to learn what every renter finds out sooner or later: Don’t piss off the landlord!

China might sell some U.S. bonds and increase their military spending, as punishment to the U.S. for selling weapons to Taiwan.

Luo Yuan, a researcher at the Academy of Military Sciences, said:

“Our retaliation should not be restricted to merely military matters, and we should adopt a strategic package of counter-punches covering politics, military affairs, diplomacy and economics to treat both the symptoms and root cause of this disease. Just like two people rowing a boat, if the United States first throws the strokes into chaos, then so must we. For example, we could sanction them using economic means, such as dumping some U.S. government bonds.”

Aside from aggravating our landlord, selling weapons to Taiwan is the most boneheaded decision our “leaders” could possibly make. What’s the purpose? Is there a shortage of American-made weapons in the world?

Sure, Taiwan will always be talking about gaining independence from China; and China will always talk about reunification with Taiwan. But there’s been less saber-rattling lately, not more. Both countries are prosperous and neither would benefit from going to war.

In the 1990s there were rumors that Taiwan had huge armies of computer hackers who were ready — at a second’s notice — to completely disable China’s communications and weapons systems. I have no idea whether those rumors are or were ever true; and China is technologically light years ahead of where they were fifteen years ago.

In any case, selling weapons to Taiwan was an incredibly stupid move. Or as Rahm Emanuel would say, "fuckin' retarded." It's just more of America’s nineteenth century solutions to twenty-first century problems.

And besides, if we get evicted by the landlord, where will we go?

I China does evict us, we could rent The Yukon Territory off Canada, I don't think they're using it, or perhaps ask Denmark to lease us a chunk of Greenland, with all the glaciers retreating, there should plenty of arable land emerging, good enough to grow turnips.

I think we should sell arms to China. I mean, shouldn't one want to be nice to their landlord? I'm sure they'll cut us a break on our debt, right? Right.

China is dangerous. Deadly dangerous. Not only do they own us they are envious of us, at least in the short run. They are the next empire. I like what Randal and Holte said also....

Srik: Interesting site; parts of it anyway.

Holte: Ah, Greenland with melting glaciers, fresh turnips -- I'm there. I'll just jam a few things into my shopping cart and I'm on my way.

Randal: We could make a lot more money selling weapons to China, since there are over a billion of them and only a few million Taiwanese.

MadMike: That's right, they own us and they're envious of us. And that's a scary combination.

I think it's a mistake to believe the Chinese are "envious" of us.

The Hans are, and always have been, nationalists. I suspect that they are more contemptuous of us than anything else, and I can't say that I blame them. They've watched us just fritter away a great society, while they've suffered appalling calamities while trying to rescue and rebuild THEIRS from the state it was in back in the 1930s.

The Hans are probably feeling pretty superior at the moment. They've taken the tools that we claim made us great, and turned them on us.

I don't see them as dangerous to us from a military perspective. They know we're going to fall apart, and when they think the moment is right, they'll start pulling keystones out. WE are dangerous to us. The Chinese are simply willing co-conspirators to our demise.

JR: I think that's it in a nutshell -- "WE are dangerous to us." It's incredible how far China has come in the last fifty years, and how far we've fallen.
