    Actually it is important.

    China is going to go in and strip them of all their resources and leave behind open pits and deforestation. A few of the politicians here will be living in NYC's or London's penthouse apartments in 10 years.

    It's kinda sad watching the US descend into insignificance in the world . A country with so much potential , eating itself from the inside , and blaming everyone but themselves for it .
