More of Trump's winning! A less stable security environment is definitely in everyone's best interest! MAGA!

A talk fest leading to nowhere. Such a loss. Its China that turned away from security talks, not the U.S, best go take your complaint to them or are you, as so many Americans seem to be, pro China on trade?

A position I will never, ever understand that any American could hold if you care about the welfare and future work opportunities of Americans.

Do people need to be reminded who the most protectionist countries in the world right now actually are?

Ill give you a clue, one starts with C and the other starts with R.

Those are the facts. Read this article from an E.U perspective and its much the same from a U.S perspective.

The report also shows that 67 new barriers were recorded in 2017, taking the total tally of existing obstacles to a stark 396 between 57 different trading partners around the world. This confirms the worrying protectionist trend identified in previous years. China displayed the largest increase in new barriers in 2017, followed by Russia, South Africa, India and Turkey.

I'm pro Trump. His policies aren't responsible for China walking away, China is. We finally have a president that isn't afraid to punch back.

Time for Defense Secretary Jim Mattis to head to Taipei for security talks with ally ROC-TW instead of wastin his time in Beijing!

He should also urge PM Shinzo Abe to follow suit!

I am curious as to what planning the U.S and its allies have in place for humanitarian needs should the China/Taiwan situation blow up at some stage. I certainly hope it doesn't. But those ethnic Chinese that wish to live in free states should be given an opportunity to do so if they can make a good contribution.

The U.S should be using its relations with Taiwan to lure high tech manufacturing to the United States.

There is certainly an opportunity to work with those that want to move to America should fighting break out and bring their manufacturing knowledge with them.

Entire world considers US to be UNTRUSTWORTHY.

Taiwan, Hong Kong, Macau need to get together and form their own country.

A friend who has been living in a mid-tier Chinese city (8M) teaching computing just returned home. We spoke for about 3 hrs about conditions in China yesterday. The Chinese people live in a very different world from people outside China. Things we take for granted are blocked, since the Chinese govt protects their local industries. We spoke mostly about computer and data security, since that's our professional connection.

He actually caught a student breaking into a professor's office window to turn in a late assignment. The office was on the 2nd floor. My friend took a video to show his colleague and pointed out that trying to break rules was much more common occurrence in China. It was expected.

The whole world is asking why Defense Secretary Jim Mattis always goes to Beijing for talks while persistently snubbing 'ally' and fellow democracy ROC-TW?

Hoping PM Abe would not follow such a mysterious policy and go visit the one and only Nippon-friendly nation on this planet Earth!

Am surprised not to have seen a news story about the recent naval incident between China and the US, perhaps tomorrow.
