    Without a credible enemy whats this all supposed to be for ?
    Oh I'm all up on that and agree that that's as much of the agenda as containment of China is.

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

    Like I said, I'd be doing the same thing China's doing, with one caveat, I'd tell America to defend its annexation of the Hawaiian islands to a board that I have veto power in.

    What provocation would that be? Flying in international air space?

    On the contrary, that's probably its precise intended use.

    Militarily the artillery is of no value. It could be erased in the first half-hour of any engagement with US forces. Its only conceivable role is to threaten merchant shipping.
