It’s good too to hear what the thinking is like among some of the staff of the U.S. military war college. Thanks.

I’m thinking of the Peloponnesian War starting because of two small cities far away from both Athens and Sparta. Alliances can be a tricky thing.

It is the illegal aggressive, encroaching, arrogant, bullying claims to ownership of an international body of water they do not have any rights to.

US subs could take out anything on that island easily. Tomahawk missiles with cluster bomb loads would be the end of anything on that island.

If we fail to act on North Korea, who threatened to nuke New York, with an easy target of one large missile launcher. I doubt the Chinese have anything to worry about.

Only guilty people have full of wild imaginations.

FYI, the Vietnamese have at least five Kilo subs and together with her airforce, she may scheme to make a surprise raid on the Paracels.

The other reason why US and her allies are upset is they fear China can play the ‘Malacca Strait’ chokepoint in the SCS just like US could threaten China over there.

It’s called the South China Sea…. for a reason.
It’s not American. Chill out.”
Wow, by your amazing logic, the Indian Ocean is owned by India! And I suppose North and South America is owned by the United States of America.
