Beijing’s Latest BOLD Move

China has made another bold move in the ongoing South China Sea disputes. In its latest move, China has stationed more fighter jets onto their man made islands. These islands have, in reality, become military bases from which China, if so moved, can control all of the South China Sea. It is reported that an estimated $5 trillion in cargo, gas, and oil pass through this set of sea lanes each year. If unchecked, China will control world trade. Despite denials and rationals from Peking, this is a real threat to peace and commerce in the Eastern Pacific.

    Morons. Its about the control of the shipping lanes. This is about Chinese hegemony in the area and elsewhere in the world.. You won’t be happy until you’re speaking either Chinese, Russian or Farsi. I hope it’s your rectum they violate first.
