I can only hope this is a step in the right direction. Despite the posturing we've done against them, I think it's time we try to just set things aside and attempt a peaceful relationship.

Now, in reality, I know that's hard to achieve. Both sides have their daggers pointed at the others back as they embrace in a bro hug wondering if the other is either A) wise to their armed hand or B) going to strike them first.

It's a deadly game, but it could lead to better things. Or worse.


Posturing we have done against them?? Are you serious? Did you not see the map I posted?

It's because they are going to be facing three alien scouts in maritime warfare, you all saw the movie. Might as well have as much backup as possible.

There's more:


BEIJING — No one can contain China’s rise, a leading Beijing foreign policy thinker said Tuesday, warning Manila and Tokyo that they had been mistakenly emboldened by Washington in territorial disputes with his country.

China is embroiled in a bitter row with Japan over disputed islands in the East China Sea, and also claims almost the whole of the South China Sea, where it has engaged in standoffs with Philippine forces.

At the same time the Obama administration is engaged in a “pivot” to Asia.

But Ruan Zongze, vice president and senior fellow at the China Institute of International Studies, said: “No one in this world will try to contain China and no one in this world is capable of containing China.

“Since the United States has adopted this new strategy of returning to the Asia-Pacific region, some countries have made the wrong judgement that the US will encourage them to challenge the sovereignty and territorial integrity of China,” he added. “

This is a misjudgement on their part.”

This is how China has become, they really think they're now invincible, "again".

But, but, but, 5,000 years ago China didn't conquer the world so they must be peaceful forever.

Well, not to make this a political debate, but what do you expect from our current PoTUS?


Well, to keep it strictly military and not political? I'd expect the President of the United States to at least ponder, if not outright ask the question why American commanders can't be present to check out Chinese combat command centers and how they wage war from the inside? They were just doing serious war games with Pakistan across the nation from where CIA runs drones (or used to) not that long ago.

Perhaps because he'd know the Chinese would never stop laughing or giving him hell for even asking such a silly thing. It does sound kinda silly, when put in reverse, doesn't it?
