China has now surpassed Yankeedom in its trade with Europe. Is this because Chinese goods and services are superior? No, it just means that Yankee capitalists do not bother to makes their profits on goods and services. Instead, they invest in selling arms to its “allies” against Chinese “influence”. This moronic strategy will never win because the leaders of most countries are intelligent enough to know their chances of reelection are better when their country has railroads, paved roads and heating/cooling systems, not more weapons against an imaginary enemy.
