    As a matter of fact, you don't.

    Nothing is going to happen until it happens so you are just going to have to wait.




    You need some patience right now!

    The U.S. military is letting a lot of people go, maybe you could hire some of them.

    China is BS. Deal with it.

    The Bundy-Fest people are looking for something to do. Tell them we don't believe in the federal government. And say we have ranger scrolls that read "Saviors of the Constitution" and they can have one if they join us.

    It isn't their island. It is a sovereign country. There is a chance that they might not attack it, fearing a confrontation with the U.S. That's the deterrence. Wasn't that complicated, was it? The better question is, does military deterrence work with the current administration in power. My guess is that it doesn't. I don't think anybody fears the U.S. at the moment.

    Deterrence was always a nonsense, or at least from very soon after the possibility of nuclear warfare became evident. Didn't Einstein say something about the fifth world war being fought with sticks and stones? Who would be mad enough to trigger that.
    Taiwan may be a sovereign nation in our eyes, but the Chinese regard it as theirs, (hence the "") It's only a 100mile jump away, Would the American public take the chance of losing millions of their people for the sake of foreigners they never met and couldn't care less about?

    Of course not, but the American politicians would never pass up a chance to bash the other party, whichever one happened to be in power, for not going in and whipping China's *****.
