    Yes, with US ally.

    What's so funny about thread titles like this is that you don't even need to read the article to know that it isn't true.

    Yes, and yes! Maybe they can enlist the help of the Dardanians. Americans are weary of perpetual conflict!

    Don't know what to say. My best man was Chinese. (He lived for many years in Hong Kong but now lives and works in Singapore.) Awesome guy. I work with several folks from Mainland China today. They're not the rude, chauvinistic persons your describe. They're all--every last one of them--great people just trying to make a living like everyone else, and they love America! Most of them have adopted English given names. One has a son who's a physician in the U.S. Air Force, and another couple has a daughter who's a kick-ass college student and is as American as apple pie.

    You mean like the "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere," in which Asia (including a large chunk of China) was supposed to be a vassal of Japan? I don't think Singapore, Japan, the Philippines, Indonesia, Taiwan, Malaysia, Australia, or even Vietnam want the U.S. out of Asia.

    Yep, USFP planners have decided its time to suck it up, make amends with Vietnam, grease some palms, in order to secure the use of the Vietnam era DWP that will help our ambitions of holding China down from its inevitable rise to undisputed regional power, at least.

    These is no problem with China becoming a regional power, assuming it behaves repsonsibly. In fact, I think the U.S. would prefer more engagement and cooperation globally by the Chinese instead of its tendency to stick its head in the sand and just focus on its commercial interests. The problem is China seems to think it owns all of the South and East China Seas.

    As the US seems to think it has been charged with policing the entire planet.

    A Military Futurist Explores War in the 21st Century, envisions that China’s submarine fleet could be two times as large as the U.S. fleet by 2017.[17] Steven W. Mosher insists that China is building up its armed forces “to break America’s back in Asia and thus end America’s reign as the sole superpower in the world.”[18] He claims that China will try to assert its influence in Asia in order to build a foundation from which it may challenge the U.S. globally. After doing this, forecasts Mosher, the Chinese military—even using its new submarines to do so—will try to neutralize U.S. allies, and expel the U.S. military from its bases in the Pacific.

    We figured out somewhere around 1938 that isolation wasn't an option.

    The US shed its (only somewhat, mind you, isolationism) when we set out to war with Spain, a half century earlier, to expand our territorial holdings. As ever before, the problem remains hypocrisy.
