Foreign policy and economic policy linked!!

I really don't get this red-state argument. Don't they see that foreign policy and economic policy are joined at the hip? Is it going to get to the point that it did with the Russians when they finally had to withdraw from Afghanistan when they reached a point that they could not pay the troops?
Good grief!!
And if you think this can not happen to US; I seem to recall not to long ago that our commander in chief was suggesting this very scenario not too long ago.(like just last year)
How long is CHINA going to finance our folly? Is it really worth it to these people to push us into debtor status for generations to come?
I just really don't get it. And I'm really getting sick of hearing it. 2 + 2 = 4. Reality bites.
