The Repot Depot

Chicago Tribune writer Michael A. Lev is correct: China wants Taiwan back and “views Taiwan (as) a renegade province and has never ruled out invading.”

This month, the U.S. trade deficit with China hit 161 billion, expanding at 30 percent a year, clearly unsustainable.

In Iraq, Bush re-packaged and re-sold imperialism calling it “pre-emption,” thinly spreading U.S. forces in the sandbox, while military enlistment goals plummet.

When in debt, the Repot Depot repossesses something when payments aren’t met.

So when does China repossess Taiwan, satisfying U.S. debt owned to China’s satisfaction? And what will Bush say when China labels their invasion “pre-emption,” pointing to U.S. occupied Iraq for justification?

And how will it be watching Taiwan’s invasion on television, risking World War III with a military response?
