So what should our political action be? Scold them like we are doing now with Iran – that has worked well hasn't it. Economic sanctions on Iran hasn't worked either. Empty hollow threats will do nothing. War or threat of war could do something but that is just not an option at time.
So with China – what do we do? Scold them some more. Stop their imports? Sure, prices will skyrocket hurting the poor and disadvantged in the US and China will ask for the trillions back that they lent us for the ARRA.
