China gets what it needs without war because military industrial complex is not tied to Chinese banks.

They invest in other countries in order to get their resources. We go to war.

“China today has the largest military on the planet, with two million active personnel in the People’s Liberation Army (PLA). However, China only spends slightly over one-third as much as the United States, accounting for thirteen percent of annual global military spending in 2017, compared to thirty-five percent by the United States.”

  1. Congress spends money on the military like a drunken sailor on payday. Tats, tits and twat. In the end you get a blotted unhealthy gluten with a mean streak.

  2. Hi Scottie,

    I come to China often – I am here now – and the amount of infrastructure building would make your head spin. The high speed rail is amazing, and the transformation I have seen over the last 40 years has been mind bending. They have a very long way to go here, but at least they seem to be going in the right direction.

    • Hello Czippie. Thank you for the information. Hope your stay in China is grand and safe. I also have been reading about the huge investment in other countries infrastructure that China is doing. If gives them ports and highways to move their goods to new markets and also gives them political influence with these countries. They are doing this on a huge scale. Meanwhile the US is cutting off other countries and retreating to behind our borders. This administration has ruined the idea of the US as a world leader. Hugs
