Soon China's GDP Will surpass America. What will be the reaction?
Since neo cons and repubs are in the pockets of the scum chinese government, they are putting america at risk. China would defeat us, judging by our embarassments in the last 50 years. Most fortune 500 companies biggest deals are in china. Wal mart, teh corporate oppressors have stores there. I find it funny (in a cynical way) that by 2050 economic indicators show china's gdp might be 200% than that of America. I will just rest my head, REMember i said the downfall of america will be because of corporate greed. During wars companies profit big time. Thats why I always look at my millitary family funny. If you are aware leo strauss then you know his theory about the gentlemen who will die for his country, which is dumb in itself.

To wage a war for a purely moral reason is as absurd as to ravish a woman for a purely moral reason.

2. Do you really have to ask?
It's always Clinton's fault.

3. GDP isn't the whole story.
Take a look at where the preponderance of new PhD's are (China). Take a look at where the world's manufacturing base is - China again.

China is rapidly climbing towards superpower status. The U.S. is squandering it's wealth and heading towards has-been status.

The question becomes - will the movement of power from the U.S. to China be peaceful or otherwise?

5. My first boss, quite the eccentric visionary,
used to always say, "the yellow race will rule the world" way before Nixon even knocked on the door.

Which reminds me, if part of Bush's motivation was personal revenge for alleged assassination attempts by Saddam on his Daddy, then why not invade China? They fed him a meal that made his Daddy puke. Bush could claim they tried to poison his Daddy.

8. Bush I puked in Japan, not China
Puked in Japan is softening the event. He puked on the Prime Minister of Japan, just leaned over and hurled on the guy's lap. Arrogance and barbarity go hand and hand with being a Bush.

7. Muckahi'
Gotta keep those steel mills going, 'eh?

Oil is power and power is to keep those steel mills going at all cost.

Is that the crux of capitalism that's married to the Republic.
