Let’s not overlook though what we do know about the campaign finance scandal and the fact the Chinese were involved in our presidential campaign and our congressional campaigns.
For example lead paint in old houses can be a greater threat to children’s health than lead that may be under some industrial site where there are no children.
Clearly the Chinese know that we want a good relationship with them.
So China will be having to make some choices as to whose side it wants to be on. Hopefully this will be the beginning of a major improvement in our relationship with them if they choose correctly.
