"We are willing to starve for years to make the US bleed!"

China's Communist Party-controlled media has issued a blistering video in the face of the trade war launched by the Trump administration.

"China must be prepared to fight a protracted war," states the four-minute video.

"Trump's ‘outrageous and selfish' strategy might work for smaller countries, but it will never work for China," the video warns. "To quote a well-written article in the Global Times: If the Americans want to fight, we will fight them until the end! And we will fight until the Pacific Ocean splits into two!" Global Times is the Communist Party of China's nationalistic and anti-U.S. news outlet.

"This is an undisguised threat from a modern imperialistic country," the video says. "Now that they can't scare us with military forces, they resort to economic measures."

The video urges the Chinese government to impose sanctions on American companies doing business in China, including Boeing, Walmart, GE, Ford, McDonald's, KFC, Apple, and U.S. airlines and says, "We are willing to starve for years to make the US bleed!"

The trade war makes no sense for either side. Trade always improves the general standard of living in a country, limiting trade reduces the general standard of living.

Tump holds a neanderthal perspective on trade.

China should just ignore him, unilateral free trade is better than no trade.



  1. The Communist party of China uses trade as means to an end. It used one sided free trade to have capital equipment elsewhere, especially in the USA, transferred to China or scrapped. To draw in the knowledge to make all sorts of things and then to watch as it died out in the places it came from. They were not concerned with the standard of living in China so much as the ability to have the upper hand economically. To gain market share and eventually become sole producers. To bankrupt global competitors. This is why production in China was so heavily subsidized.

    The party must feel its hand is strong enough now otherwise they would simply add more subsidy to cover the tariffs.

  2. "We are willing to starve for years to make the US bleed!"

    You'd better believe that! Considering the millions who have died already under the boot of Communism, what's a few more million?!?? Human Sacrifice to the gods has always been a fixture in the Human Condition. What difference does it make if the god is Marxist-Leninism? None whatsoever. "Let 'em die!" saith the Central Committee. This is the lure of human sacrifice.

    Do you think a Tariff will change the behavior of these murderers?

    "Work harder, Proles! For Socialism! For Communism! Die already!"
