US to China - Stop trading with Iran or else!!! China to US : Or else what?Just think who's bankrolling your war efforts in the ME and who's holding your massive debt. US to China : We'll put heavy tariffs on your exports that will hurt you companies. China to US : Go ahead, we're even trying to boost our domestic consumption that will eventually wean ourselves of your market.Your tariffs will only make this process move faster.We're also exploring new markets in Europe and Africa. Any wonder why the US treasury backed off accusing the Chinese yuan last week?The effects would have been worse for the US than China.In case the US forgot, the dollar's on stilts and China can make it worse if they choose to - although they'll be affected a bit. Anyway,why should China abandon trade with a 70+ million population nation just to make the US happy?
