China debt threatens national security 1/2
Description: The $800 billion owed China has put the U. S. in a position where the Chinese military believes it can dictate U.S policy. The Chinese economic warfare threat is the most recent development in deteriorating bilateral relations with China over the last year. Since January 2009, President Obama has taken what the Chinese consider a number of provocative steps by sending Guantanamo prisoners to Palau, insisting China stop censoring the Internet, the Copenhagen climate confrontation, intervening in the Google dispute, agreeing to meet the Dalai Lama, and selling a $6.4 billion arms package to Taiwan. Judge Dan Ryan is here to argue that the debt to China needs to be eliminated and in the interim, the Obama administration needs to employ coherent policies regarding China that do not unnecessarily strain established diplomatic relations or threaten U.S. national security.
