    Good relations with China are required but not to the point they take huge advantage. After WWII the US gave Japan the best steel making technology of the time. New plants were built there and in China. The USW made demands ~~ like 13 weeks vacation for some workers~~ and the US built/upgraded next to nothing. Much of our steel problems are self inflicted but that does not mean China or even Canada should feel obligated to take advantage.
