China Makes Its Move

With all due respect to the global war on terrorism, the age-old geopolitical game of great power politics has made a bit of a comeback of late. The challenges that the world’s aspiring regional hegemonic powers have posed to Washington over the course of Barack Obama’s second term in office have become markedly more vexing since 2013. Particularly for an administration that appears to want little more than to remain focused on transformative domestic policy in its waning days. While much of the White House’s attention has been understandably drawn the Middle East and Eastern Europe over the course of the last 18 months, the president might soon be compelled to “pivot to Asia” out of necessity.

    Anything resembling a strategically competent Chinese blue water navy is at least 15 years away providing their economy does not implode in the meantime. The canal through Nicaragua is a much more interesting chess move.

    Good essay by Commentary magazine. Again, the problem is that the stupid, quisling Obama actually wants totalitarian governments to walk all over the United States and its allies. Therefore China and Putin take advantage of Obama’s traitorous behavior, and act aggressively.

    Obama runs the United States like a crooked, Tammany=Hall city government. As totalitarian governments act aggressively , and as Obama submits, he pays off the dominant, left-wing media cartel with black money — so our media don’t really report what’s going on.

    This can’t be serious. Yes Russian power is in decline but the same can be said of the U.S. And while China’s economy has cooled down, nobody really knows how stable the American economy is because no country has ever been $20 trillion in debt before. But, by all means, start a confrontation with China. The thought of Valery Jarret, Joe Biden and Barak Obama managing a crisis of that proportion gives me the giggles.
