I agree. I don't think I actually have an issue with the trade war, but I have lots wrong with how the current administration is going about it, and I don't have any faith in their ability to extract a positive outcome from China.

Reminds me of the Bill Hicks joke about being 'for the war, but against the troops'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f_whePVoqOY

China says it is their national right to hack and copy... No US President sane or not will be able to overcome that.

Its major competitors spent 2 centuries actively attacking & sabotaging it (a fact that the US population doesn't seem aware of), seems fair.

There must be a difference between stealing the formula to gun powder vs. downloading the software and engineering for a F-35 plane.
