Is this to counter our govt's position that China is less than stellar for human rights? A bargaining chip perhaps to get us to ease off?
Or are they worried about getting their people shot when they take over American land? For example, there is a proposal for a Chinese industrial city near Boise that would be sovereign Chinese soil. No US laws would apply there.
Or is Obama planning to give natural resources to China for our debt?
I'm not saying any of these things WILL happen, just speculation. What is their end game?
