Does china own the U.S?

My friend likes to think he knows everything and he says that china pretty much owns the United states, is this true? if so how?

He's saying this because we're in billions of dollars of debt to China. But I wouldnt go so far as to say that they own us.

Much more then a billion, its a trillion. But I'm not surprised, the USA has always been in debt, even since it first became a nation...

I've been hearing a lot about this as well. "Jobs in the US are being sent to china" "Land from the US are being bought by Chinese" "learn to speak Chinese" I wouldn't doubt it honestly. I live in cali and most of the population is Chinese in some cities.

No. If China owned the U.S., the U.S. wouldn't be called the United States of America. It would be called China of Chinese...

If they try, our economy will collapse and we'll be in trouble. They'll be in trouble, there'll be lots of suffering on both sides.

China calling in our debt all at once will never happen. The world economy would fail.

White Corporate Americans have slowly sold all American lands and businesses into China for billions...millions of Jobs are now outsource to China and there is a commercial on national tv that all of America will be "own" by China by 2030...China has 2 billion people ...America has 350 million people...""who owns who"""

Other countries that have sold land/mineral rights to U.S. investors solved the problem simply enough.. They just took it.

China holds approximately 8% of our debt. Countries like Britain, Germany, etc also hold some of our debt. The biggest (by far) part of what we owe, we owe to ourselves. For that matter if you bought a US savings bond, you own part of the debt too.
I don't know how many remember this, but I recall when the panic was about Japan. they were buying everything, they were doing better than us, we were all going to have to learn to speak Japanese!!
it all runs in cycles
