As American military power begins to wane over the next couple of decades, we'll have to be more self-reliant.

Get with the times, man. If you'd watched the American Presidential Debates, you'd realize that China has brought the USA to its knees. It pains me to say that, but it's the truth. The future is in Asia, Russia and Europe. If we want to be part of the future, we need to start bringing in money and trading with countries that are important to us. China is the next superpower, whether you like it or not.
