    Under the islands and the surrounding sea? Oil.

    Plus, this extension by China would also move their ADIZ out to a point that is would make it more difficult for the US to come to the aid of Taiwan if China decided to get stupid. This ADIZ cuts the routes from Korea and Japan to Taiwan.

    Mornin' Beaudreaux. Weeds.....<perk> ..... koff koff, I mean just shocking. .....

    What goes on in that part of the world (or ANY part of the world outside of United States territory) is none of the American government's direct business.

    Let Japan/Taiwan/China fight over those uninhabited rocks.

    Yes and no.

    What I really want is for people to see the Chinese government for exactly what it is.

    Someone we should not be such close trading partners with. Our government and our citizens treat Chinese businesses better than we treat our own, we let them sit at our table, we treat them as a civilized guest in our world market. Why do we have embargoes against Cuba, but not China? These people are not our friends, they never were, and barring major upheavals in their socio political environment, they never will be. The world needs to see who this person we are selling our souls to really is.

    Because it isn't their airspace. It's international airspace that they have proclaimed to be theirs.

    It's not their airspace, they just decided suddenly to MAKE it theirs.
