    Questions for all of you foreign policy gurus.

    1. Would you agree that China is (one of) our biggest strategic threat(s)?

    2. What would you do to contain China?

    I'm not a foreign policy guru, but here goes:
    1. Yes
    2. Stop building railroads
    Seriously, I would think it all begins with tightening up immigration policies and restrictions.

        1. Yes.

        2. While it goes against the free market, gotta account for known foreign threats. Put restrictions on any commerce that can potentially threaten national security. IT comes to mind. I shudder to think how much data mining they're able to conduct on US consumers.

        Also, block any sales of US businesses or real estate to China based corporations.

        JMHO.

          The attachment is a lengthy analysis from the U.S. Naval War College -- number 6 in their China Maritime Reports Series.

            Yes.

            We should mandate that any US company that receives one cent of tax breaks or subsidies cannot share any of their intellectual property with the Chinese under penalty of law including but not limited to delisting from any stock index.

            In addition, any university that accepts any money from China for any reason whatsoever is forbidden from getting one cent of tax payer money and can face fines and/or prosecution of administration or faculty if found to be exporting any intellectual property to China.

              It is so silly.

              We do these little trade deals in which they agree to buy our products. They buy one shipment, disassemble the stuff and copy it.

              Wash rinse repeat.

              Don’t manufacture shyt there. The free market and national security do not share the same goals. The stock market cares about short term dividends and nothing else.

              Don’t be stupid, but Ron White answered that one for politicians

                  China is a huge strategic threat -- the biggest, is what a lot of people are telling me. Fortunately, and I give them credit for this, I really do, they have already built a wall, which is a tremendous wall, from what I'm hearing. And by the way, they actually call it, "The Great Wall," just to let you know. So what we're talking about, and I'm talking to some of the top people about this, believe me, is, why not make them, meaning Chi-na, why not make China stay on their side of their wall? Makes sense, right? So this is something we're looking into, and big things are going to be happening very soon, that I can tell you.

                          Elect Trump in 2020. Sanctions get worse. China goes the way of USSR.

                          Stop allowing them to steal intellectual property and they will collapse undee their flawed economic system that doesnt allow for invention
