    you don't "let" people overtake you; they either overtake you or you fight them off

    kind of hard to fight them off when they have us by the balls, economically speaking, and outnumber us like 4 to 1

    I would love for some more Superpowers to step up. We need balance again and other countries for the poor people to hate.

    i don't think they have us by the balls so much; they need us to be able to pay off the debts so they can't overwhelm our economy or we default. if they foreclose they get property worth nothing because we defaulted.

    basically they have to support our economy or they lose both their investment values and their income flow, and their market. they are totally dependent upon us now.

    I don't think they need the money that bad, their people are used to living in poverty and squalor.

    the debtor is slave to the lender

    also, i can't see us asking China to ramp up production on heavy machinery that we would need in order to go to war with them....

    Agreed. European countries have been hiding behind our large army.

    I would also like to see China handle Iran and the Taliban.

    Not always: that is only generally true when there are legal recourses and means of enforcement available to the lender. The economics of individuals rarely applies to abstract entities. China has no recourse beyond trust, so it is in their best interests to enable us to pay back the debts. Also we are their primary market: if we fail they fail.

    I check labels whenever I buy something and always try to buy American.
    You phonies who say you hate China probably have a house full of Chinese made goods.
