1. Das Boot
Edited on Fri Apr-22-05 01:25 PM by orwell
So while the US bludgeons its way across the world stage, leaving car bombs and prison scandals in its wake, China puts another boot squarely up the ass of Uncle Sam, expanding their sphere of influence through trade and third world development.

We try and stymie Chnina's access to ME oil. They develop oil and trade resources in Africa. We are saddled with an exploding military infrastructure, they are "saddled" with multilateral trade agreements. One is destructive, one is productive.

Which do you think is the better "strategery?"
