    Some might say that our navy being 12 miles from the coast of the disuputed islands shows that we won't back down from China, but I see it as a sign of weakness.

    What we should have done is landed on that fucken piece of shit island and planted our flag. That would have sent the right message to Beijing!

    China is the next superpower if it isn't already. Their middle class population is larger than the entire population of the US. Eventually, the one with the most toys and resources win.

    would you be willing to fight and die in a war with China or have your kids fight and die?

    I used to fight Chinese kids all the time. One time my cat went missing. I don't want to tell you what happened, especially since you are a vegetarian, but after a few good punches, I got my cat back.

    I understand the principles behind what we're doing, but if we get into a fight with them in their backyard, I believe they will mop the floor with us. The won't fight like we do. They will fight to win. That means the opening salvo is: 1) our communications/recon satellites are disabled or destroyed, 2) EMP attack on Guam, 3) any of our ships that are close to their "islands" go to the bottom. Then they would dare us to respond. Think about our current government. Do you really believe we would take the gloves off and REALLY fight? I hope we don't have to find out.

    You grow up in a Chinese neighborhood?
    And was the cat okay when you got it back?

    If Obama's crew is working on a foreign policy, it'll get messed up. A certainty.

    Has China agreed to sign Obama's "Transgender Now Policy" documents requiring all of the world's nations to have transgender Vice Presidents, gay Foreign Ministers and black basketball coaches?

    My father was in a pershing tank on the yallow river in korea when the chinese crossed. He said they could not kill them fast enough. they eventually overan his unit and he had to retreat. Like most asians they don't give a fuck about dying and they blindly march into battle. Take into account there active army is 3 times the size of ours and you get the idea.

    You're comparing China to a bunch of sand reggies in Toyota pickups? OK.

    Yes the cat was fine. The two brothers took my cat and were teasing me. This is when we were kids, so we fought a little and I made them give me back the cat.

    At some point those Nobel guys are going to ask for their Peace Prize back from old "Drone Killer" Obama.

    Worst President Ever.

    It was a no-brainer for them after they hacked into a US satellite, listened to Wendy, Jeff and Tan Mom and thought it was a pentagon intelligence chatter.
