China is busily attaching MVRs to existing ballistic missiles and has deployed the same on nuclear submarines. We have an existential interest in their military constructions in those islands, and in spite of their as yet unsubstantiated claims to those islands, their self-proclaimed exclusion zone doesn't cut the mustard, as I've pointed out to you several times. Carry on. I've lost interest.This should be for those six nations with overlapping claims to iron out. The only way that the US has an ounce of (questionable) legitimacy in this, is to stay the **** out, until, China attacks a nation that we have defense treaties with.
