Three words: Real Estate Broker.

Response: Only for the non-empire builders….

Other comment: Once again, China is telegraphing what it is building a massive military for. Many want to put their heads in a pit of sunny, warmed sand, but the reality is that nation truly has empire building desires, and they aren’t interested in acquiring rights to bases by paying fair market value after contracting with local authorities.

The vacuum of power is here. The Chinese are going to fill it. We have the choice to stand by and let them do it their way, and wring our hands at the injustice that will surely follow…and, when we are basically un-resourced by populist demand, demand something be done about it.

re: #2 Curt

You have a valid point. But China could have annexed Korea, at least the north, without a problem. And they certainly could have annexed Cambodia, and Vietnam, but they didn’t. I’m just factoring in history. There is certainly an area in which they feel they can competently govern, albeit it harshly—which would be today’s China. I can’t help but think they feel that they have an unsettled score with Japan.

Certainly they aren’t committed to Marxism or Maoism. They feel no need to civilize the barbarians in the world, like other empire-builders. And they can buy any natural resource they need—except water, which they know is an engineering problem. They have plenty of power in the world, enough to tell the US to curb its spending.

Tell me what you think they want. That would bolster your argument.
