    Where has the US used force on this issue?
    Well if you're pressed for time, we can take this up later. Too serious for abbreviations.
    Killing one person is murder, killing 100,000 is foreign policy

    Yeah, busy 4 days, new windows in, a tad of other things, and go back to work at 0500.
    So old and tired.
    And yes I look forward to discussing this.

    Not only on public perception and reputation, but cops simply won't want to police these neighborhoods anymore.

    China is also a geopolitical adversary. Just like Russia. And yes, I think Romney would have been better with China.

    Today the Obama administration is denying ISIS has a caliphate, its the most inept admin in quite some time.

    Funny how when the conservatives gripe that we shouldn't be the world's policeman, but when another nation acts up, well, why the heck haven't we started rattling our sabers yet?
    All we had to do was commit to our allies in the region and this wouldn't be happening. Appeasing power hungry nations like China will only result in more of this type of thing.

    China knows they can walk all over Obama and they are right.

    I've got news for you, if you think what China's doing is walking all over Obama, you haven't seen anything yet. And, neither Rubio, Bush, Walker or whomever else you manage to stick in the WH will be doing anything to China either.

    I suspect we will have the opportunity to find out.

    The US appeases other power hungry Nations as well. Saudi Arabia is ghastly and far worse than than most ME countries, they also fund terrorist and terrorize their own people...BUT the US has vested business interests and a huge American ex-pat workforce living in Saudi Arabia. We support Israel who most definitely is power hungry. There are Americans living in China working for US companies. What can the POTUS do to China and balance all of these dynamics? It is best to mind our own business, like other countries do and react if something is done directly to us. Fighting China over these small Islands is a waste of time and resources.

    We were isolationist in the years before WW2 and look at how that turned out. Now, with international islamic terror, an exponentially more globalized economy, and the capability for rapid travel thats even more the case.

    Its interesting that you are arguing for isolationism while citing our economic interdependence.

    Not at all....it is impossible to be isolated and be prosperous. This is the type of economic interdependence we all should be focused on..not aggressive military action for every little slight or issue between countries. This is the civilized approach to international relationships. I personally, would like to see our tax dollars used for services that benefit Americans...not trillions of dollars spent fighting in countries who hate us...and are a lost cause and not worth the effort or lives of American Soldiers. Since we have a stellar and strong military...the world depends on the US to fight their battles for them and the taxpayers are tired of footing the bill for that. We would like to see a few of our tax dollars spent in different areas.

    You appear to believe I am advocating letting bombs fall on China. Is that what you think?
