I meant to share and comment on this important address earlier,
but alas, there is much activity these days.
At any rate, I found Vice President Mike Pence's speech
to be incredible. He discusses in good detail the long history
of The United States/China relations over the past decades,
and more importantly, the current state of affairs of this relationship.

The current assessment by the United States is not pleasant.
The trade imbalances are obvious, and a smile and red ribbon from
China does not cut the gravy any more.

I am including a link to a Foreign Affairs/CFR article that they
kindly sent me even though I am behind on my subscription.
I hope it does not appear as a "paywall" to you all, as the article
is well written, and well informed. I do not completely agree
with their angle these days, but, C'est La Vie.

I think there are those in their ranks that seek The Chinese
(Marxist,Leninist,Maoist) Model for their vision of Globalism,
and there is The United States of America Constitution Model
that will not give up without a fight. Much to their dismay.
I guess the "live and let live" attitude of mine is naive.

Full balance/advantage is a ways off.

But it's going good so far.

Pence makes Sense.

How long do you give it?

meh, the CFR is about as trust worthy as the Federal Reserve bank. If Pence is pimping for the CFR, and Trump is questioning the Federal Reserve for raising interest rates, I see a presidential assassination in our near future.

Thanks Xuenchen.
If you read para 2 of the Foreign Affairs
article it is obvious that their version of
"peaceful coexistence" equals rip off the U.S.A.

Para 4 discusses the increased Leninist State in China.
Para 5 assumes an armed conflict.

At the very least, the article allows the wise and discerning
a clear view of their mindset.
How far they are willing to proceed in their objective is
speculative.
In my opinion however, there is a very clear objective on
behalf of The United States of America.
We will never give up, we will never give in, we will never quit.
We will leave no man left behind.

The Hudson Institute speech,
and the Foreign Affairs article
are two different times, two different links
and clearly two different opinions.
Hold your horses, turn around,
and spy the target again.

Okay. You admitted that your are naive and live and let live doesn't seem to work.


How long do you give it until it erupts to the point of no return?

Please embellish.

The U.S. Constitutional Model
is still in full effect.

It will never erupt to the point of "No Return"
Shall I change my attitude to Live and Let Die?

Every war fault has reached that point.



Shall I change my attitude to Live and Let Die?



That is up to you, your the one that has to live with your decisions.

Your claim is not true.

Your "live and Let Die" reply
is ambiguous and of no value.
It contains only the weight
of a fleeting evasiveness.

I will expect better than that from you.

Here,
I will specify.
Historically, not all wars have ever reached a point
of "No Return". Yet.

I am of the "live and let live" Charter School so to speak.
However, when subjected to a hostile environment, my
response, attitude, and philosophy can change quickly and
dramatically.

Lastly, I live quite comfortably with my decisions in either
scenario.


Thought I would give the dogs something to chew on.

That is for you to decide once you weigh all the options.

When the first person of that war is killed, that is the point of "No Return" for them.

So when something challenges your belief system you change your belief system.





Lastly, I live quite comfortably with my decisions in either scenario.


Any preference, since you feel comfortable with each?

I think you answered my question.

I agree with you completely.
In fact, I am sure that my new friends
at Juilliard would agree as well.

I read prolifically and try to infer from
many different points of view.
I find it worthwhile to read material
that I do not agree with in particular.
For one, it allows me to understand a different
mindset, and two, it challenges me to validate
my own set of opinions.

Your reference to music was welcome.
Happy Halloween to you :
