    Now watch what you say or they'll be calling you a radical, liberal, fanatical, criminal.

    I’m quite surprised they are sending troops. Have they ever done this outside their own region?

    When Obama let down the sides, it look like it saved treasure and showed good intent. But the competitors saw weakness and we lost credibility as an ally. Getting the respect back will be difficult, cost us dearly and maybe be like putting the spirits back into Pandoras Box. I suspect that that President was of Good Wii. But as we all learned, the path to hell is paved with Good Intention.

    I can't remember them doing so. But they want to set a precedent of projected power.

    An interesting development. I think the Chinese are also present in Djibouti in Africa. I think VT or RT covered this story too.

    It's no wonder at all the MSM doesn't cover this.

    We might see more of this. One of the biggest advantages that the US military has over the Chinese military that many people don’t think of is that the current US military is filled with experienced war veterans whereas the current Chinese military has hardly any real world experience.

    I'm going to need a MUCH more reliable source than that to take the claim seriously.

    If true then it's good to see the Chinese standing up to fight terrorism unlike Obama's administration.

    A quick Google search reveals stories all over the place: from "no" to "yes" to "they will" and "they have."
