China's Silence on Ukraine Speaks Volumes.
I'll tell you what this is is that Russia and China feel they have earned their own Iraq. The US evil irrational aggression against Iraq set the stage for what Russia is doing. By sitting back quietly during the Iraq war Russia and China (I fear) believe they have earned the right for their own global aggression. Russia could take Ukraine, N Korea could take over S Korea and then what might China do in Japan and Hawaii while we dealt with that shit? We must stand up to these arbiters of hate through TRADE!
ZERO TRADE WITH WAR MONGERS AND THEIR SUPPORTERS SILENT AND OTHERWISE. THAT'S IT!
If Russia and a quiet China are going to start with this shit then this is the last dollar of my money that they will see! We can rebuild our own manufacturing systems in the AMERICAS AND WE WILL, BY GOD! I'm a progressive and I'm all for, all forms of US energy and the
Keystone pipeline. The costs of US labor is no excuse for us to use
Chinese slave labor to produce our goods. We can't under price goods
produced by workers making a few dollars a day, but American made goods,
no matter how expensive keep all the money in our economy. Plus, we
should return to a mode of manufacturing where we make products that can
last long and be repaired by US workers, instead of our modern
'disposable' manufacturing philosophy. If China does turn out to be part
of a Russian-North Korean China plot to expand we will find that no
matter how much hardship it causes we can't afford to send money to
China. During WWII when we turned most of our industries into arms
manufacturers we got by using old electronics and autos and clothing for
a few years. We can do it again.
