    Heard a news report that Pakistan is killing Americans while we give them about $5b a year in all types of "aid". Then I heard that Pakistan said that if the US stops aid, that Pakistan will accept aid from China.

    Then I saw Mulally proudly proclaiming all the new plants Ford is building in China to build new electric cars and car components.

    Then I recalled what happened when one of our planes went down in China.

    So lets take a poll to see who trusts China...or are they simply playing Wall Street for morons?

    The humble opinion of this average Joe is that Pakistan can pound sand.

    We'll keep the air and land space required 'till we vacate the region, thank you very much and from this moment on not one fucking dime.

    china will do anything that a) can discombobulate us, and b) will help them accrue any advantage in the region.

    we should send a full blown diplomatic team to talk with India AND sell Taiwan the NEW F-16's not upgrade the ones they wish to replace. But alas.
