Obama's Selling of Our Security

Washington Capitol, DCImage by Francisco Diez via FlickrPerhaps we don't have to worry about China invading the US in the future. It seems that our government is selling them the country a little bit at a time. And since the mainstream media doesn't bother to report it, it is a good thing that there is alternative media to pick up some of the slack.

Take the story I have linked to below, I was blown away to learn how much our security has been sold out. It say's in one part "Quietly, the U.S. has created 257 foreign trade zones, or FTZs, through out the United States, designed to extend special U.S. custom treatment to U.S. plants engaged in international-trade-related-activities.
The FTZs tend to be located near airports, with easy access into the continental NAFTA and WTO multi-modal transportation systems being created to move free-trade goods, cheaply, quickly and efficiently throughout North America.
There is nothing in the United States government's description of FTZs that would prevent a foreign government, like China, from operating a shell U.S. company that is in reality owned and financed by the Chinese government and operated through a Chinese government-owned corporation."
Frankly, that scares me. I would like to think that our government was concerned with the security of the country. Further in the article it points out that China is demanding 50% as a condition of doing business with them. I understand China's desire to do business with and in this country. What I don't understand is why our government is giving away so much of our treasure without being able to have the same concessions from China. It seems as if the Chinese recognize the value of their security, while our government seems intent on giving up ours.

China invades U.S. with 'free-trade zones'
