Description

The cartoon shows President of China Hu Jintao (or maybe a generic Chinese man) shaking his finger at an American Uncle Sam and telling him that he can't talk to China like that when he owes millions. Uncle Sam replies that he will never get a penny back If he uses that tone. Refers to rising tensions between the United States and China. The U.S. has a $233 billion deficit with China, which in turn has lent about $400 billion to the U.S. government by investing a chunk of its $1 trillion of currency reserves in Treasury securities. That gives China a hefty stick with which to beat back U.S. protectionism. Ties have been eroded between the two superpowers because of arms sales to Taiwan by the United States and are now further eroded because of a proposed meeting between President Obama and the Dalai Lama.
