I dont agree with this:
The US isnt provoking China. China is trying to expand their area of influence by taking physical territory from others.
Russia is openly taking territory from others.
I think that our allies are just that, allies. We should watch out for them the same way they would for us. China knows we would. We arent "secret"
Russia and China are trying to change the dynamic of power on a global scale. They are trying to tip it in their favor.
While that is understandable for any people (try to get better things and more power) , they are risking the stability of the world so as to get it.
We are finally closer to real global peace than we have ever been. Small conflicts erupt sure, but we don't take territory away from people and at the
end of the day the big guns aren't dusted off.
Its like if we tried to claim part of Mexico by land and the gulf of Mexico by sea.... for keeps. Not an intervention, a conquest.
We would risk provoking all of South America into war with us....because we weren't happy with the vast trade and commerce and power we already
Or if we KEPT Iraq and Afghanistan. "nope, 52 states now"....
Its nuts what they are doing.
