The Militarization Of The US/China Trade War

As often happens, the US trade war with China is heating up and spilling over to the military realm. Recent skirmishes in the South China Sea are just part of the increasing militarization of the dispute. How hot will the dispute get? Is there anyone in the Trump Administration who will cool it down?

Newsflash! China is communistic and therefore supports globalism and conquering the world for Karl Marx. Alert, alert, 🚨

I believe those islands were given to China in a treaty signed after WW II. The US is a rogue nation, a murderous bully that needs to be stopped from destroying the world economically and physically

Why do Americans keep harping on the South China Sea islands? They should instead examine their own coup against the Hawaiian Kingdom and the illegal annexation of Hawaii into the USA. ……….. their hypocrisy is staggering

I don't know exactly what Dr. Paul meant by "An arrangement with China is a lot bigger deal" at the 7 minute mark but, Canada IS our biggest trading partner, Mexico is number 3. Mexico is close in terms of nominal dollar amount of trade to China. These deals are DONE, so WTF?

In the year of 1909 has documented the Qing Dynasty officials defending the Xisha Island & Nansha Islands(islands in the South China Sea) because of the French aggression, the us was not qualified at the time, and the us was the best at distorting the state affairs of other countries,see what"s going on in middle east

The defence sec has nothing much for talks It's is much on testing the tolersnce of china tbefore planning the next fon. Fon is a lie for containing china, despite its outdatedness and the american one track mind on more destructive weapon system to sustain allies' purchases of american wares and bs. The chinese is reading like a book the stlye of the american president on bluffing the american public that winning the trade war is easy to make america great again; only yhe results of losing the chinese market, a shrinking and hollowed out economy are not the way… Read more »

Nobody wants to listen to dictatorship and the likes by america anymore because of bs. The u-s is unwanted in syria, yet it is not willing to leave until is got kicked out by more drastic killing of american lives there. U-s already lost 76 billion for acheiving nothing. Likewise, fon in scs will make china more determined than ever to tell the u-s that hey must leave the area or be driven out by force as the chinese has the meansto deal with nuclear bombers and fight jets and the many weak conspirators. The chinese has been humiliated for… Read more »

Any time you gentlemen laugh at Bernie Sanders, I think to myself how you don't think about the people who rallied to Bernie with their problems. If you laugh off Bernie Sanders (and I agree that he is very flawed but not laughable), you are also laughing off real people with real problems.

And that bothers me. I see you guys as the two muppets in the balcony seats laughing and making snarky comments at a show they want no part. Good fun up there I hope.

Again Ronny, Why do I get the Distinct Impression you are 'continually' Sucking Up to (GLOBAL) SOCIALISM? You a MASON or just a Good 'Lap Puppy' for the ILLUMINATI, who want to do that very thing in that NEW WORLD ORDER and ONE WORLD GOVERNMENT?

Ron Paul are you going to benefit off the 5G wave technology. You should do a extensive story about that how it's going to kill off a lot of people. Kill off the population.

China has annexed part of the busiest international sea lanes in the world. The UN does support or recognise Chinese claims. Paul cant think why China would annexe and militarise open sea and therefore control the flow of trade and the exclusive use of resources in the area. The Anglosphere must send a mass combined battle fleet through the Chinese claims and so utterly humiliate them. We should blocade their ports if they respond with violence. Their economy would be crushed and there would be severe problems feeding the people of China. Within six months there would be a real… Read more »

If US sends a naval force to SCS, China will meet it with their own naval force. It'll be up to the US to do the next move.

Ignorance (greed) brought genocide, slavery, pollution, conflict, misery, ugliness and destruction to America. Transforming happy villages with joy spilling out of everyone, into polluted pig pens filled with misery, murder and mass shootings. Now this invisible cancer called greed is spreading throughout the world. Sucking the joy out of life and destroying the planet at an unprecedented rate. Intense light therapy is urgently needed.

I watched an episode of the Keiser Report and they had a guest on who was a former CIA agent under the Reagan Administration and he said that the CIA's goal was pretty much to destabilize other nations and control the official narrative. There is absolutely no need for an organization like that in a free and open society.

As Dr. Paul noted… Most of the trade that goes through is Chinese… So they have no reason to cause others to not want to use it. It makes no sense. It's all about the Military Industrial Complex.

US under Trump is behaving by a nation of terrorists, yet wishing to declare war against others in name of terrorism and global domination.
