 I. R. concluded

And as nationalists, the CCP could care less about US social programs,
they just want their *trillions* secure so that someday China could use that
money as China sees fit. I'm sure being able to wag a finger at the
sanctimonious US gov't was only an added bonus.
My comment: Well the key word is "nationalists". You are right of course,
but once upon a time the second C in CCP stood for "Communism" - not
Capitalism. It is because of the betrayal, that they invoke in me a special
disgust. But that is my Irishness. We loathe traitors more than the enemy.
