Under The Radar

Am most interesting and sobering reminder, from a sane Democrat senator, that all is not as well in the world as we might think.  There is no such thing as a 'benign strategic environment.'

For all practical purposes China has unilaterally decided to annex an area that extends eastward from the East Asian mainland as far as the Philippines, and nearly as far south as the Strait of Malacca. China's new "prefecture" is nearly twice as large as the combined land masses of Vietnam, South Korea, Japan and the Philippines. Its "legislators" will directly report to the central government. 

Watch this space:-

Its been tried before and, after a lot of pain, ended in tears. We could bring the Chinese back to being nice if we were not fixated about cheap, cheaper and cheapest.
