I wonder if the 13 million acre oil lease off the coast of Vietnam (Exon) has anything to do with all the war/trade talk with China.

Yes we have all heard the South China sea is rich in fish, carries 5 trillion dollars worth of trade each year through its' waters and can be a strangle hold on China's need for oil... There have been rumors of oil under them there waters (said with a west Texas accent)..

I watched the conformation hearing with Rex Tillerson and wondered at the time how are they/you planning on stopping China's access to their newly created islands without some serious threats... ?

The west made China rich as we gave them Dollars for Chinese trade goods which decimated the West manufacturing ability in many areas... Nothing deep here just an observer and found it interesting about the Exon oil lease.. An Iranian professor friend of mine once said all wars are about money... I have thought many time he was correct. youtu.be...

GodEmperor, you nailed it.

oil requires democracy & freedom.

Donald 'don't give a # about anyone' Trump,
Tillerson who already runs a joint venture with Putin.

Great show of Russia/US reconciliation.

s&f OP

ps. I personally don't have an issue with China's Island Defence construction.
It's a logical response to the Pentagon's aggregation.

Maybe they read a few hacked email between US & Russia that prompted them to preempt any attack and give themselves a few extra miles of defense reaction time?

The CIA and Pentagon are the swamps that need draining!

Our ally will be India.

Why do you think Boeing is going over there to build a factory?

Yep I should have mentioned India. I have always thought they more or less had their hands full with Pakistan but India seems to be willing to position itself between a rock and a hard place. Many used to say the next nuclear event would be between those two.
