They can kidnap foreign women, make them sex slaves and get away with it? I hear those chinamen are nasty but this is beyond comprehension, as we are not living in the dark ages anymore.

US farmers do not need China, we do not need to feed corn and soybean to Chinese pigs. There are a lot more creative and healthy things we can do with our farmland and we can afford 30 years of subsidies to restructure it.

Besides a few charlatan politicians and mass media people, no one is going to care much if the Chinese pull another Tienanmen Square in Hong Kong, except as good propaganda fuel, better than ethanol.

I am more concerned that the Chinese could throw a million-man army at somebody, like US or some indebted South American country, and not bat an eyelash over casualties.
they cant throw a million man army at us and we cant throw one at them.

are you a farmer?
