Reagan in China.

Here is another quick one. Ronald Reagan ran vigorously on an anti-Communist platform and even, allegedly, ratted out a few of his Hollywood buds to the Fibbies. Well swallow this with your P.M. bowl of corn flakes. On 9September1984, then President Ronald Dutch Reagan signed an order to the Export-Import bank to "...in the matter of National interest for the Export-Import bank of the United States to extend a credit and guarantee in the aggregate amount of $68,425,000 to the Peoples Republic of China.... purchase of steel making equipment and related services." Hmmm! Now I don't suppose he could have connected the future dots and have imagined that lending money to a Communist country that is now buying up our own debt would add to world peace and the spread of democracy? I wonder how Comrade Bush feels about his American hero now? By the way, are we still a Sovereign Nation?
