‘It means that the equilibrium of Asia is being deranged. We should expect the risk of armed conflict [with China] to grow unless and until the United States moves decisively to repair its defenses and reinforce its alliances.’
So after a long period of time Asia has reached a tipping point: Stable state (peace) to [...]
While Barack Obama is busy gutting the U.S. nuclear arsenal, Russia and China are rapidly preparing for the day when they will nuke the United States. To most Americans, it sounds very strange to hear that Russia and China are concerned about nuclear war. After all, isn’t the Cold War over? Isn’t that what politicians [...]
