Because we buy so much stuff from them. If our economy collapses, we aren't buying any of that stuff. They then can't sell it.

You do know that other countries buy cheap crap from China, not just America right? I don't think our collapse will harm the rich Chinese in the least. You're talking like the people who work in the factories will be hurt or something.

No, probably through microwaves or radio waves, or whatever transmits through the air that that particular microchip would be vulnerable to. All they would need is the blueprints which a hacker could get from a 3rd party contractor.

They do, but it's mostly US based companies that buy all the cheap shit, and then sell them on to other countries.

I haven't really thought too much about what would happen to China in the event of a US economic crash, but it would definitely affect them quite dramatically.

The United States is also China's largest trading partner and the fifth largest source of direct foreign investment. China is the United State's third largest customer in regards to exports. They're taking as well as giving and to say that China is somehow isolated from the United States economically is incredibly stupid.

Oh, so they'll just sit on a hilltop with a transmitter and mess with the guidance systems after the munition has been launched. Ok, I feel really unsafe now.

The US is currently needed because of the economic relations our two states have developed. I'm sorry, but China's continued growth requires such sustained relations. If their largest trading partner suddenly took an economic dive, especially considering that the Chinese have invested in the US dollar itself, China would suffer some serious setbacks and many members of the party would be very upset.

It's all pretty outdated to keep on with the whole US versus THEM mentality in this global capitalist society that we live in. China's economy and America's economy is for the most part the dealings of private companies working on an international scale.

I didn't know China invested in the US dollar, do you actually have evidence of that or is it something you heard somewhere?

If they did invest in the dollar, then they are idiots since the US borrows a gazzilion from them every year further lowering the value of the dollar.

Well if you are going by what I'm saying, you would be silly. I'm just spouting off bullshit and seeing if any of it sticks.

Drunk drivers kill more people per week than terrorism has killed ever. Same thing goes for pancreatic cancer but you never hear anything about it.

I'm not sure what the name of this country will be but it will be run by some sort of corporate oligarchy.

Also corporations are people:

AllI know is that our most wanted list is looking a little weak. We need to dig up some more heavy hitters.
