China threat to USA:No medicine!

Honestly, move everything out of China to Mexico and South American countries...

1) The manufacturing cost after setup will be almost the same.

2) It'll help boost South American and Mexican economies creating jobs and lessening the desire to mass migrate here.

3) It'll be a big fuck you to China as they slowly implode and go the way of all Communist regimes.

This.

Btw, china won't cut off our medicine. Trump would shit on them. Plus they need our business

Meds for what ? There's no cure for the flu......corona or seasonal...

gotta move the medicine and some of the production back inside US borders IMO

Matter of National Security as mountain medic said

Seems like the intent all along.

 Shock and awe part 2 time.

The entire concept that such a threat is even possible even in theroy, shows how F'in stupid we've been. Or is it just something worse than that as ever?

Make all in the USA

Agreed. Fuck having any business with China.

There's a cure.

There's no cure for any virus on the planet. There's vaccines to help prevent them, but no cure.......

90% of prescription and ovc drugs are manufactured in China. We develop them here and Europe/Canada. But outsource making them to China. 

 

all of this should encourage the government and American public to take China out of the equation 

If you guys really believe this we as a nation of individuals need to start buying american again. Make an effort to avoid chinese products when you can. Tell companies you stop buying their products (looking at you dole) because it's not from America or a local positive partner country. No company is going to be the pro-america company to their own bankruptcy. We invited this buying the cheapest thing always, we can stop it by telling producers that we wont give them money if they do business with a shitty threatening partner, and then dont give them the money.

Correct.  It starts with the consumer, not the producer

Should have waited for Biden to be president before saying that

Now you will pay

Trump will just blame Obama on this as well :-)

You're such a clown. It's not JUST Obama's fault. It's every president before him too.

Hopefully Trump can get something done about it in his 2nd term.

Why am I the clown?

He (Trump) blamed Obama for this already! LOL

China is our enemy.

I am so sick of wars but with China I think it is inevitable so lets just get it over with already.  We do not even need a full on ground assault. Lets just send in the Navy with 3 carrier groups. China is already at war with us anyways but they are just not doing in military wise.

No it actually starts with the govt. Our govt (mainly the left) make it impossible for companies to compete in America. American companies do not hire overseas because their love for China or Mexico but because the govt makes it impossible for them to compete without doing so.

This is a great idea. Unfourtunately once the crisis is over everything will be back to normal. Meds arent the only thing were in bad shape on. Electronics, automative parts and countless other stuff has to be at least second sorced to other countries.

I don't want to suggest anything drastic, but my solution to this sounds like: "Flop Pukes"

Would save A LOT on shipping costs as well. A lot of things used to be made in Mexico. Hell, Ford had a bunch of 302 blocks and other stuff made there for years.
