China the new USSR...at least to the GOP in the USA

Lately China is getting played as the big bad "boogie man" out to get all Americans. This is mostly coming from the far right political party in the USA, the Republicans.

I find this highly ironic since it was a Republican president (Nixon) that is credited for the modern good relations between the US and China.

Anyway, here's a new TV ad Mark Amodei, who is running for the US Congress, just started running.

I don't have a problem with China. North Korea and a couple Middle Eastern nations I do not like though.

The only danger ON earth is world economic collapse, then its everyone for themselves. Probably complete anarchy. Then some mighty self rightous idiot will cull the population to relieve the world of their suffering. I would guess many cities would end up burning to the ground, and utter mayhem would ensue. China is all politics. If it isn't the Mexican immigrants sneaking into the USA, or foriegn countries taking USA Jobs away.....well ... then its China.
Does anti Chinese sentiment get votes in the USA? The guys a moron.

Lol that idiot will fool them since where there's chaos there is need for order. They rebuild cities etc, times of prosperity (as usual) and then, once at the peak, it all starts rolling downhill and we're back where we've started. -.-

It sort of reminded me of the likes of Jim Jones, except on a larger scale.

Complete collapse.

Not yet. The great depression of the past will be an itch compared to what a present day depression will do. They won't be able to feed anyone. Hence the cull.

Did you even watch the video you posted? I just did, and it was focused on the increased US debt to China, and how he wouldn't vote to raise the debt limit. It had nothing to do with anti-Chinese sentiments o.o

So anyways, good job on looking like a moron.

Russia just does a lot of talking. It doesn't have the means to get into a full scale war.

In the USA, the populous is sick of war, so short of an attack on us, there would be no support for one.

China, seems to not want war at all. I'm sure I'm overlooking something, but the last aggressive thing they've ever done was the Chosin Reservoir in what we Americans call the Korean War (1950's). The Chinese were beaten so badly in that battle, it wasn't even funny. IIRC they outnumber a small grouping of US Marines, US Army, US civilians and some others (Brits? Aussies?). This rag tag bunch has no supplies, were surrounded, and still won.

Um ya. Maybe you missed the irony I posted in the OP? I know, you're all of 12 yrs old, so I won't call you any names.

Maybe you forgot the part where you said this, and then proceeded to base your post on it.

Also, you contradict yourself when you have already called me 12 years old.

And after that I said, I find this highly ironic since it was a Republican president (Nixon) that is credited for the modern good relations between the US and China.

The way your paragraph comes across, it is you saying that it is highly ironic for the republicans to go after China when they opened China to the US.

If this is not what you intended to say, then it was poor wording.

If that WAS your point, then my point is that the republican in the ad you posted was not going after China. He was going after US debt. Showing the China clip at the front of his ad was just to enforce that our debt is astronomical. There are plenty of things to disagree with people on without having to make stuff up.
