The problem IMO, is NOT restricted to the Chinese, but several countries around the world could wake up one morning and flood the market with Treasury notes.

Are you suggesting that the US should stop selling treasuries because some buyer could decide to dump them for some reason? I just can't see the point you're trying to make. It seems likely that those bonds would be absorbed, if they were being sold at a strong discount. Perhaps you could elaborate on why such a thing would be done, and why it would be disastrous to the US.
