That the "one child policy" in China, which was resulting in a great imbalance of the sexes, due to girl babies being aborted in favor of a male child, would result eventually in two possible outcomes.
1) Become more warlike
2) Increase of homosexuality
I would add a third possible now and that is a sexual slave trade, or mail order brides, looking to secure females from surrounding Asian countries.
If you recall, there have been times I made mention of China's armaments getting more and more. They are building a military to be a world power and that can only lead to possible confrontation. Not too long ago, China intruded in India's territory. One way or another it has gotten its toe in the door. It seems to be making more friendly relations with its neighbors but somehow it makes a move that's counter. In light of this and other possible threats, the US military or DARPA is progressed in an pgm. to make a fast response and try to reach anywhere in the world. Now, that's a lofty goal. Nope, already much in the works by using "scamjets" dubbed a HTV-2.
It works, it simply burns off its skin going so fast that it then failed. Hey guys, why not use layers or "shark skin" principles.
The idea that the US can strike so fast worries some is no thought a concern. But, more importantly some strike in response or "pre-eminent one" could happen if deemed necessary. I have a feeling a lesser national threat will have this tested using the latest tech to prove in "real world" telling results. "Do you feel lucky, punk"? Dirty Harry stance -----Willy
