What the hell is wrong with the leaders of this nation?
Watch as a Department of Defense employee is caught on tape selling military secrets to a Chinese spy. 60 Minutes' Scott Pelley reports, Sunday, Feb. 28, 7 p.m. ET/PT. (click above)
The tape shows a Chinese spy obtaining the list of weapons that we intend to sell to Taiwan. This, of course is rather topical, seeing that this little dust-up just happened - remember?
BEIJING (Reuters) - Senior Chinese military officers have proposed that their country boost defense spending, adjust PLA deployments, and possibly sell some U.S. bonds to punish Washington for its latest round of arms sales to Taiwan.
WHY IS IT THAT WE, THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION, PUT UP WITH THIS CRAP?
I'm not willing to pay down one damn nickel of the so-called "debt" that China holds. Not one nickel.
They can blow me.
All of them.
Espionage with your "best friends" and "trading partners" eh? With those that you claim to have an "important relationship" with?
I think not.
I think it's war, and it's time we recognize it for what it is.
In fact, I'm so sure it's war that I think we, the people of this country, should demand that our Treasury Department tell the Chinese to stick their bonds up their ass. All of them, including those they're buying through British banks.
And if Treasury won't, and President Obama won't, that's fine.
We should refuse to buy anything that comes from China.
Yes, I know that's hard these days. You know what? I don't care.
These people are not our friends. They are murderous thugs who are stealing our military secrets - so they can use that information to point weapons at us. Terrible weapons. Nuclear weapons.
And we're giving them the money and the power to do it every time we go to WalMart and buy more of their Chinese-made crap.
I say f^#k no to that.
You should say it too.
We should all demand that our government say no, or we'll say no for them to Chinese products and we'll say no TO them - the politicians directly - in November.
It's that simple.
When you owe the bank $10,000 you have a problem. We owe them $2 trillion dollars. As a consequence the problem is theirs and the solution ours - tear those bonds up, declare 'em worthless with the stroke of a pen.
Do it Washington - or we boycott Chinese products and do it for you.
