Here it is the more detailed view. Or what others seem to say. China has a long way to go, but it never-the-less took the 1st step. Remember China for all intends and purposes rarely ever left it shores in modern history. This is a provocative stance IMO. -----Willy
Well, what do you know China is doing it again. It falls into place. China wants natural resources too and I'm sure it now more than willing to take it or strong arm to get it. China hasn't done much to lay claims to islands but now it wants to. Even in the old Mao days they could have transplanted some people there, so what gives. You don't have to be a rocket scientists to see where this all leads...
If we(USA) has to stand there and go to blows it won't be long before some exchange gets extreme in response. We need the govts. of that area to firmly side with the USA if they haven't already as a shield against aggression on China's part. This seems to be a continuing dialog as I see it because sooner or later, China will be the problem, not Iran. -----Willy
