TradeWars 2007

China wants to play:

Chinese food inspectors have banned meat products from seven U.S. companies from being imported into their country after finding a range of contamination issues in shipments checked on Saturday, according to China’s official news agency Xinhua.

The suspension of meat imports from the American companies — including Tyson Foods — comes just weeks after the U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced it would hold all farm-raised catfish, basa, shrimp, dace and eel shipments arriving from China until they are tested for residues from drugs not approved by the U.S. for use in farm-raised fish.

People are dying from certain Chinese products, but to China, it’s a game of oneupmanship.

The title, of course, refers to an ancient BBS game which I had the pleasure of playing in the late 1980s. The game was called TradeWars 2002, and I played it on WWIV Bulletin Board Systems, you damn kids!

  1. I used to play Legend of the Red Dragon on those things.

    I kind of miss the bulletin boards, actually.
