U.S.-China Conflict: From War Of Words To Talk Of War Part I

by Rick Rozoff

Relations between the U.S. and China have been steadily deteriorating since the beginning of the year when Washington confirmed the completion of a $6.4 billion arms deal with Taiwan and China suspended military-to-military ties with the U.S. in response.  The Chinese official lambasted the U.S. over more than $12 billion in proposed arms transactions with Taiwan in the past two years, stating they were designed to prevent the reunification of China. The preceding week China had rebuffed Gates' request to visit Beijing after the Singapore summit. At that conference Gates spoke of "our collective responsibility to protect the peace and reinforce stability in Asia" in reference to the sinking of the South Korean corvette the Cheonan in late March.

I do not see anyting bad or malicious in confronting Red China's ambition for world supremacy. After all, everything China claims as her own has been stolen from others.
