Taiwan, China gear up for arms race
Taiwan's cabinet has approved a budget of $18.2 billion for the purchase of top-of-the-line U.S. weaponry.
(CNN) -- China's generals have stepped up efforts to seek approval from the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership for more funds and "faster war
preparation" in response to moves by Taipei to secure sophisticated weapons from the United States.
Sounds threatening, like it might actually happen, and soon. Sounds like the beginnings of another World War as well.
