It may as well end this way then, because at some point it's going to ignite. Do you want now or 10-20 years from now? Because it's going to happen no matter what.

needs to be done, UK, Austrailia, Japan, vietnam, Phillipines all need to say the same thing.

China has Zero legitimate claims to the area they are claiming and the world has ruled against them in just about every court case concerning those claims and nobody has called them on it.

Appeasment DOES NOT WORK, has not worked and in our grandparents day we saw a pretty hard core example of how appeasement fails.

Absolutely. If only the Brits would have let Hitler have the Sudatenland, we could have avoided WWII.........Wait.......what?......


History is your friend if you learn from it. It is your enemy if you don't.

I'm not happy about a potential confrontation, but appeasement is not the answer.

Ensuring the safety of shipping vessels in maritime waters is the duty of any free nation interested in open trade.

China is hell bent on pushing to see where we will respond.

Britain toughens stance on China as it eyes U.S.

Since Boris Johnson took power, mounting concerns about alleged espionage by Chinese firms, human rights abuses and protectionist trade practices have given rise to increasingly urgent demands for a complete rethink of the U.K.’s stance.

You do know this could lead to a future where your friends, family, city and the places you know will nothing but fine dust.
Yourself included... meanwhile the generals are in their bunkers slamming the red button until nothing is left.

The generals don't give the orders to push the buttons, those come from politicians and in China the politicians are the wealthy ruling elite with way too much to lose.

China isn't a threat to anyone that doesn't share a border with them.

How?



Mutually assured destruction (MAD) is a doctrine of military strategy and national security policy in which a full-scale use of nuclear weapons by two or more opposing sides would cause the complete annihilation of both the attacker and the defender.

And guess what side Russia gonna take.. they will prob just take US because nothing left to defend after China subs have destroyed most of US.

The United States champions a free and open Indo-Pacific. Today we are strengthening U.S. policy in a vital, contentious part of that region — the South China Sea. We are making clear: Beijing’s claims to offshore resources across most of the South China Sea are completely unlawful, as is its campaign of bullying to control them.

Eventually they will be our neighbours if we leave them to continue their expansion.

I don't think this is the time for China to start flexing any muscle. The flooding that is occurring in China is a MAJOR internal issue for China from many standpoints. Agriculture, infrastructure, and morale of the people are all going to suffer. Combine that with the ever growing distrust of China on the international stage and the growing capabilities of India and other countries that are going to take some jobs and business of China.


If China decides to push the issue it will be more out of desperation than anything and it won't be just an us against them. China hasn't made a lot of friends in that region of the world so.

From all accounts the rain isn't stopping or going to stop anytime soon. China is in big big trouble and when you are playing ball against mother nature there isn't much you can do.
