This is a serious question. I honestly don't understand how trade is a national security issue. was screeching the internet, but it only talked trade during wartime. So my question is how is trade a national security issue?
Thank you FolksyMuppet. That makes total sense I totally think trade is an important issue as well as national security, but I didn't understand the connection.
The general argument has been that we need to be self sufficient when it comes to the means of creating weapons of war. Basically if we go to war with the country that we buy all of our steel from we won't be able to make tanks and guns.
If anyone out there can give me some insight that I would very grateful thank you in advance.
