I think the USA should team up with the Asian countries that are a bit pissed at China for building them artificial islands. What goes around comes around.
What are your thoughts on this idea?



The islands are being built in the South China Sea.
Wouldnt a more accurate comparison be the USA building an artificial island off of Cuba?
I dont think the Chinese would care.

Either way, this is a regional affair that we need to butt out of.

If China was building an Island off the coast of America, then that would be a different story and a national security concern. The same if went and built an Island close to China.

Another island that doesn't need to be constructed, we already own a nice chunk of Cuba.

Yea, we own a lot of islands, especially with military bases on them to stomp out the inhabitants or those close to it that do not bow to the Oligarchs in Washington DC.

What if China and other countries start building islands off the coast of the United States? How do you feel about this. Remember freedom of navigation?


Right on the edges of International Waters !!!

Yea, its time to liberate the islands of their resources and spread some "Freedom and Democracy" Of course, the spoils will go to the Corporate Fatcats and Rich Shareholders that win the harvesting contracts while the majority of Americans will see no gain from it, in fact they will be poorer from it since they will have to pay the taxes for the military operations.

It is more of the same socialism for the rich off the tax payers back.

What if they set you free?


Than we'd be just like glorious Soviet people.


So in America there is already a situation like that of the late USSR before the collapse. Want to give it another boost?

It's their attempt to screw all other nations in the area out of resources and to control trade routes.


If China was an ice cream flavor they'd be pralines and dick.

It would be a quick way to war , perhaps sooner is better than later but that's a tough call to make


Sooner is definitely better than later.

But it is still a tough call to make.

It's all about Ferguson, Seattle, Atlanta, New York, etc.
By the way, the USA is far ahead of Russia in per capita alcohol consumption.

No need for a conflict.
Just trade sanctions until they back down.
A world wide effort of course not a us one.
