Once China can build there own infrastructure, and wealth they will consume there own products. Americans do not know, nor do they care. Why not buy a $10 shirt from China, if the same shirt is $30 from America? Think about it and do your own research, America needs to rely own themselves way more then they do know.
Chinese goods can be found the world over due to cheap labour costs within China itself. That's capitalism for you, the rich nations have their goods mass produced cheaply overseas and sell them on in their home territory for profit. I think you'll find there are some Americans who know fine well how the world works and are staunchly against capitalism but, at the other end of the spectrum, there are those who couldn't care less but are happy to have the cheaper shirt. Similarly, there are those who do know what's going on but aren't against it, they like their cheap prices regardless of the cost to others.

They did and then Afghanistan was in complete disarray. Instead of helping we left. Then something like Iraq happened and militias were formed. One was Al Kida. 2001, 9/11 occurred. We went into Afghanistan, Al Kida went to Iraq. After we finished Afghanistan we followed them into Iraq. And, there we are.(This I also recommend you look up on your own.)
There's the school of thought entertaining the possibility of 9/11 being an inside job. So what you say isn't proven to be 100% accurate and it's likely we'll never know.

But what is true was that we believed Iraq had WMDs, invaded, discovered they didn't, and handed the oil rights to American oil companies. North Korea is testing nuclear weapons and we don't attack them because they have nothing worth us having. North Korea's military is superior only in numbers, the soldiers there are reportedly literally starving and their newest military equipment dates from approximately twenty years ago along with a crippling fuel shortage. Yet we ignore them.

im not going to flame u but ur china fact isnt actually rite. its kind of rite. the real resason is because smart people go to china to do manufacturing because it is a lot easier to get rich there. china hosts the largest number of ppl in the world. if u get each of them to spend 1usd on ur product, u are rich forever. and since not everyone in china will buy ur product, u can send it over the the us to make even more!

Wow, first true words of Wisdom on the forum. I don't personally see how the capitalism helps the world, and I am against the extreme capatalism demonstrated in the US.
