Try reading more than the headlines Chris. Both sides are getting hurt, we all knew this would happen

Quote:
The agricultural industry has been hit especially hard. Farm bankruptcies are up 24% this year, and a report by the American Farm Bureau Federation finds that almost 40% of farmers’ income this year will come either from insurance payouts or government bailouts.

This is an economic catastrophe for many farmers and a headache for many other exporters. But the damage has already been done. Few expect exports to China to recover even if the trade war ends tomorrow because China has found other suppliers. Even those U.S. exporters who are still selling their goods in China must realize their situation is shaky; if they’re wise, they’re already looking for alternative markets. So China has little left to threaten on the trade front.


Quote:
But China does have other weapons at its disposal: the kind that explode. In pushing China over everything from trade to human rights to Hong Kong’s autonomy, the U.S. should remember its own history. It was relentless U.S. economic and diplomatic pressure over Japan’s invasion of China that pushed that country into launching a surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. With its economic arsenal depleted, China could at some point decide that a harder form of retaliation is in order. Escalating U.S.-China tensions thus make the world a more dangerous place.

I read the entire article, JtotheIzzo. Farmers are being remitted by insurance and government subsidy. So what’s the problem? EVERYONE agrees with short-term safety net programs for people who’ve lost work thru no fault of their own. Right leaning criticism of welfare is always to indefinite subsidies to people who werent working in the first place, and claim they cant start to bc of “anxiety” or whatever.

Meanwhile the US is wearing down China and will ultimately force them onto a more level playing field, which will increase stability for our own economy. Also, China is not going to push a “hard retaliation.” LOL at that.


I realize youre very resentful toward wme because I frequently have to correct you for being so wrong about so many things... but it is what it is, little girl. Youre low IQ and femme. You also ran a bunch of smack about Trump on the JtotheIzzo name throughout 2016 and then disappeared IMMEDIATELY after his election and switched over to this name, hoping your numerous failed predictions wouldnt follow you.

Im sorry homegirl. Youre a worthless fool, and that’s that. PERIOD.

You understand me?

THAT’S THAT.

China made it's own bed, with all the underhanded sh!t they did in currency manipulation, wage supression, looting black nations of mineral resources for pennies on the dollar with complicit "african warlords", and intellectual property theft.

Now lay in it, you microphallus b!tches.

China may be losing leverage but we are hurting too. I am opposed to the crap China has been pulling like the concentration camps & jailing political opponents/journalists/etc, but we can't win this trade war on our own. We need our allies like Europe but Trump pushed them all away.. If our allies were with us, I would be okay with a trade war but they aren't going with us. We will have to ultimately push to the agreement table to stop our bleeding.

from the article

Quote:
The Chinese government has issued vague but stern-sounding warnings that it will retaliate for a bill passed by Congress that would require the White House to protect human rights and ensure the territory’s autonomy.

Does that apply to barbaric "allies" like Israel and Saudi Arabia? Or do we only require that economic rivals like China and Russia protect human rights?

Im also curious - is the US going to start giving a shit about human rights? If so, isnt our newfound respect for human rights going to undermine our ability to stage coups/rebellions that turn stable middle eastern governments into terrorist owned wastelands?

Hats off for being the only person in this thread that isnt a brainwashed simpleton

The US is the last country that should be chastising others for failing to protect human rights... we might as well be Jeffrey Dahmer telling other folks that its wrong to be a murderous cannibal.

Yeah but virtue signaling hysterically is a much more effective attention-grabber.
