Paper in China Sets Off Alarms in U.S.

One of the problems that we face in dealing with the Chinese as our main, and needed, source of money is President Obama's naiveté in foreign affairs.  The Chinese have long used Sun Tzu's The Art of War as their guide in the conduct of business and as a result they are extremely formidable opponents in business and to be emulated for their acumen.  In the West, business is conducted on the basis of investment, profit and cooperation.  In China, business is conducted as war absent the armed conflict and the goal of the Chinese businessman is not just to profit but to defeat.  By increasing our debt to the point that we must borrow money from China we have given them the opportunity to use that debt as a tool of war as it relates to business.  This article from the New York Times (more properly the New York Slime) outlines one of the more serious aspects of that war.

The Chinese do not, of course, want to wage a shooting war with the United States not because they would be afraid of the conflict but because it would not necessarily be profitable or, in the current situation, even necessary.  Obama has, in his haste to increase the deficit and debt of the country in order to bring about the chaotic financial conditions necessary for his "fundamental change," given the Chinese a tool of war that they will use to great effect.  An attack, without attacking, on the economy of the United States such as is outlined in the linked story could easily bring about conditions that would lead to a complete financial collapse that would benefit the Chinese more than Obama.  It is a scenario that is more dangerous than Obama can hope to understand for to the Chinese, he is little more than a useful idiot.
