Chinese chess

From the Financial Times:

Last week Douglas Feith, the under-secretary of defence for policy, said that the rise of China was one of the most important issues being examined in the review, which is expected to be completed this autumn.

”The manner in which the national security capabilities are organized to address the global war on extremism will continue to dominate our ongoing activities,” said Larry DiRita, Pentagon spokesman. “But it is important to step back and examine the strategic landscape beyond these ongoing activities, and the PRC’s emergence as a global actor is one undeniable reality.”

Having been equipped with nuclear technology via their well paid employee, Bill Clinton, Communist China is a serious threat. Fortunately they are leaving themselves vulnerable to economic measures. Unfortunately it doesn't appear anyone in the government has realized it. It's an interesting chess move. China's production of cheap, slave-produced crap on the world, and specifically the US markets leave us somewhat vulnerable to them, as the removal of Chinese imports would significantly impact the American economy. But the reality is, it would impact the Communist Chinese economy much more. We could weather it -- I seriously doubt they could. They leave themselves vulnerable as they maneuver to make us more vulnerable.
