China. Instead of drastically improving conditions for their billions of people, they buy everything all around the world. Caring nothing for theior people, they plan to own the world.

Making assumptions bout the details of a purchase plan is a quick way to lose capital... The terms of the deal are not out there for everyone to see, so we can't know what gives... yet.

Canada and China are sovereign nations and we should stay out of it.

We should be pursuing the development and distribution of abundant, cheap and clean American natural gas in the form of CNG as our primary alternative to oil based fuels. North America could soon become energy independent and we wouldn't have to buy any more oil from our enemies in Iran, Venezuela and the rest of OPEC.

Obama has managed to turn every country in the free world against the USA. What a pitiful statesman who doesn't understand politics at all. If he is re-elected by 2016 this country will have a $20 Trillion debt and it can never be paid back, we will be beholding to China, Japan and Russia.
