China suspending military exchanges with U.S.
BEIJING - China will suspend mutual military exchanges with the United States over its arms sales to Taiwan, state news agency Xinhua said on Saturday.

"Considering the severe harm and disgusting effect of U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, the Chinese side has decided to suspend planned mutual military visits," Xinhua quoted the Defense Ministry as saying.

Earlier, China angrily warned the United States that the plan to sell $6.4 billion in arms to Taiwan would seriously harm already-strained ties.

One Chinese expert said the sale would give Beijing a "fair and proper reason" to accelerate weapons testing.

The U.S. is "obstinately making the wrong decision," China's Foreign Ministry said in a statement on its Web site.

'Consequences'
It said Vice Foreign Minister He Yafei warned the U.S. Embassy that the planned sale would "cause consequences that both sides are unwilling to see" and "seriously harm U.S.-Sino relations." He urged that it be immediately canceled, it said.

A spokeswoman for the U.S. Embassy, Susan Stevenson, confirmed that China expressed its views, and said the embassy had no comment.

A notification of the planned sale posted Friday on a Pentagon Web site said it would include 60 UH-60M Black Hawk helicopters, 114 Patriot Advanced Capability-3 missiles, mine hunting ships and information technology. U.S. lawmakers have 30 days to comment on the proposed sale; without objections, it would proceed.

Taiwan is the most sensitive issue in U.S.-China relations, with the potential to plunge into conflict two powers increasingly linked in security and economic issues. China claims the self-governing island as its own, while the United States is Taiwan's most important ally and largest arms supplier.

China vehemently opposes U.S. arms sales to Taiwan, and has threatened to invade should it ever formalize its de facto independence.

The United States, which told China of the sale only hours before the announcement, acknowledged that Beijing may retaliate by temporarily cutting off military talks with Washington, which happened after the former Bush administration announced a multibillion-dollar arms sale to Taiwan in 2008.

No F-16 fighters
"Maybe the People's Liberation Army will accelerate weapons testing, because this time we have a fair and proper reason to do so," said Jin Canrong, a professor of international studies at China's Renmin University.

The package, however, dodges a thorny issue: the F-16 fighter jets that Taiwan covets are not included.

The Pentagon's decision not to include the fighters and a design plan for diesel submarines — two items Taiwan wants most — "shows that the Obama administration is deeply concerned about China's response," said Wang Kao-cheng, a defense expert at Taipei's Tamkang University.

China has more than 1,000 ballistic missiles aimed at Taiwan. The U.S. government is bound by law to ensure the island is able to respond to Chinese threats.

Re: China suspending military exchanges with U.S.
I would rather be suspicious of China than
bedfellows.
Any country that puts out toxic exports then turns
around to execute the very people told by the
Communist government to complete this atrocity.
should NEVER be trusted.
Not again

Hey OP.... Your gonna love this.

About two weeks ago I had a dream .

I had some company over that same night and the mood was good. Nice having trusted friends over. I do not dream too often, but on this night, I did.
In my dream, I was watching sceens about Taiwan. I do not know how I knew the place I was seeing was Taiwan. Seeing the streets and the people, somehow I knew. strangest thing though, while I was watching the hussle and bussle of Taiwan, another sceene came into view, sort of paned to the top right. I was seeing products. Stuff that Taiwan would be purchasing os selling. No specific item, just the understanding this dream was about Taiwan and commercial goods, relating to that economy. I also had the understanding this transaction about Taiwan would affect the global economy. Then it was over.

When I awoke that morning of coarse, I had full recollection of this particular dream. Like I said, I do not dream that often, so I was puzzled about it all. As everyone began to stir, the conversations began. I talked to them about this strange dream. "Am I realy having dreams about M/F Taiwan"? No one could explain it and I just chalked it off as more strange shit.

Now OP, I see your post And I am like Holy Shit. This is unFarking believable.

So here we are......

I have the feeling this is a REAL big deal.

A dream about Taiwan, strange indeed. wtf
