China hits back at US over Taiwan weapons sale
China has announced a series of moves against the US in retaliation for a proposed weapons sale to Taiwan worth $6.4bn (£4bn).
Beijing said it would suspend military exchanges with the US, review co-operation on major issues and impose sanctions on companies selling arms.
Ties are already strained by rows over trade and internet censorship.
Taiwan's president welcomed the sale, saying it would make his country "more confident and secure".
The US State Department also defended the move on Saturday, saying the arms sales contributed to security and stability between Taiwan and China, Reuters reported.
Beijing has hundreds of missiles pointed at the island and has threatened to use force to bring it under its control if Taiwan moved towards formal independence.

All offense intended to the Chinese, but their military is only as good as the secrets they have stolen from the U.S.

Who cares what China thinks. I think we should more openly support Tiawan.'Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a
delusional, illogical liberal minority, and rabidly
promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which
holds forth the proposition that it is entirely
possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!'

half of everything we buy is from China, why do they care?!Just because your sign off after you're shift is done, doesn't mean that it's over and put blinders on. You're a cop 24/7 wether you like it or not. If thats something you can't handle, you should find a new line of work!
