China is making rope with stolen western intellectual property. That's the noose that Uncle Sam needs to fear and counteract if Pax Americana is to survive. For too long America has been an appeaser preferring the life of ease (or short term profits) to the hardship of economic war.

Of course wars are wasteful but, when executed properly, they end with winners and losers. The Economic Pax Americana depends fundamentally on the US Dollar remaining the world's reserve currency. America cannot win against China fighting mercantilism with free trade.

DesertDave, make a note here. Steve agrees with the Captain.
