China is the world's biggest cheater on every level. Slave labor, corruption, counterfeit goods, pollution, human rights violations and nuclear proliferation, currency manipulation, but they make awesome cheap toasters. Yes, the Dirka has left his goats with his charge and been to China many times, trust them never. China is not the only game in town for manufacturing, but their totalitarian government delivers manufacturing stability to a great degree. Africa is owned by the Chinese, though he would only allude to the fact. China is the enemy on so many fronts. Mexico is not as viable because of political instability. Mexico is a far better bet for trading and manufacturing. In addition, the USA would benefit from a more developed Mexican economy, because we would not be subsidizing illegal immigrants, because they would have an incentive to stay home and work.

China is a super power and has the means to battle via proxies indefinitely, beware. Let's see if this rag has some chops to intelligently discuss China. China has an aircraft carrier, this is a big deal. Most folks do not understand how many countries actually have them;answer, not many. Aircraft carriers are for one thing mainly, to exert power and influence abroad.
