Title: Major threats to humanity: Climate Change and Nuclear Warfare
Post by: ding dong on Aug 04, 2016 10:05 pm
A simple decision, made by one unknown man, has averted nuclear warfare once already. That we know of.

Quote
during Reagan’s administration, Americans launched military exercises ‘to probe Russian air defenses’. In one of such exercises, ‘Russia’s early warning systems detected an incoming missile-strike from the United States, sending its nuclear system onto the highest-level alert’. The Russian officer decided not to send the message to his superiors and thus averted a Russian counter-strike. Obama’s administration is constantly testing China’s resolve in the South China Sea. As Chomsky asked before, the question can be refined today and put as, ‘what exactly is the US navy doing in the South China Sea’? Chomsky concludes his book by adding a subsidiary question to the title of the book, ‘What principles and values rule the world?’ - product reviewer on Amazon

i believe the answer to "What is the US navy doing in the South China Sea" is very simple. These are international waters and have always been so until the Chinese suddenly concluded they are not. These waters provides trade routes and fishing for nations like Laos, Viet Nam, South Korea, Malaysia, Japan the Philippines and Indonesia to name only a few. If we look at the map in the link we see just how much sea China is claiming. Right up to coast line of other nations. These nations are now being 'bullied' by China. Boats are being rammed and put out of commission and now China has threatened Australia if they come in these waters. There is no nation that can stand up to the threats of China except the United States. We must. China has proven to be a nation with severe human rights issues and suppression of religion and spiritual thought. They are now building military bases on reefs in the South China Sea.

The ridiculous lines of conquest the Chinese have recently drawn up. See 'over lapping claims'. We cannot overlook the invasion of territorial integrity of nations. This includes our own nation. China has proven to be an aggressor by her recent invasion of both Tibet and India. Why should it be such an issue to have other nations travel thru the China Sea? It is one of the greatest trading routes in the world.
