    China has been quietly taking steps to encircle the United States by arming western hemisphere states, seeking closer military, economic, and diplomatic ties to U.S. neighbors, and sailing warships into U.S. maritime zones.
    The strategy is a Chinese version of what Beijing has charged is a U.S. strategy designed to encircle and “contain” China. It is also directed at countering the Obama administration’s new strategy called the pivot to Asia. The pivot calls for closer economic, diplomatic, and military ties to Asian states that are increasingly concerned about Chinese encroachment throughout that region.

    I doubt that very much. You had someone tell you about this, a high school teacher perhaps, and without any outside input whatsoever. You have never been far from home, that's certain.

    You missed the point. The US govt is not allowed to decide what laws it should break, whether human lives in a foreign country are more important than the laws of country which authorize it. It works for the people, and only the people can tell it what to do.

    Probably by reading history and paying attention to current events, over a number of decades. Probably by being most skeptical of mainstream media accounts.

    Only the US can be criticized in forums like this, largely due to the animosity from some toward addressing their own guilt of be born naturally to the greatest free country in history.
    Americans are so enamored of equality that they would rather be equal in slavery than unequal in freedom.

    How am I expected to address these "piles of documentation" on a debate board?

    I know there are 'piles of documentation' critical of the United States and it was particularly commonplace throughout the Cold War. But for Americans to rely on that now for their understanding of US history just defies any sort of logic. It's like believing WWII anti-Japanese, anti-German propaganda. Leftists just never seem to get it.

    Relax. You didn't. You should have more faith in the values of your country than that. Understand how propaganda works and you'll be the better for it.

    It's strange how so many Americans believe their country is capable of supporting such evil things.
