The story says that the US had been saying that was the plan all along. I must admit — I never read any direct statement to that effect — but it sure seemed to be to the logical conclusion to draw from the combination of statements and actions I did read about.
In other news — 183 green energy stimulus projects have been announced — including the expansion or creation of factories in the US. China is big enough that their own population can sustain green energy manufacturing in China. They don’t need our business — but we sure do. I like that the projects are spread around the country — new projects starting up in almost every state.
We’re doing some good things. It’s really strange to me to see supposed friends and allies trying to tear us down. It’s especially strange when it’s people whose jobs require them to keep up with what’s going on — and they report on items with spin that even casual familiarity with the subject disputes. That Obama as Bush Jr or Obama is further right than Republican presidents thing is bizarre.
