    "China’s J-20 stealth fighter jet lines up for combat duty, boosting firepower in the sky

    Deployment comes as Beijing pushes ahead with patrols in the South China Sea

    [​IMG]

    China has intensified its air and naval drills in the South China Sea in recent months, raising concerns among its neighbours. In November, Chinese H-6K bombers and fighter jets flew through the Bashi Channel between Taiwan and the Philippines, and along the Miyako Strait to the south of Japan.

    The announcement came two days after Beijing announced its Su-35 fighter jets had taken part in a combat patrol over the contested South China Sea."

    "A U.S. Aircraft Carrier's Historic Vietnam Port Call Sends a Message to China
    (DANANG, Vietnam) — For the first time since the Vietnam War, a U.S. Navy aircraft carrier is paying a visit to a Vietnamese port, seeking to bolster both countries’ efforts to stem expansionism by China in the South China Sea.

    The visit comes at a time when China is increasing its military buildup in the Paracel islands and seven artificial islands in the Spratlys in maritime territory also claimed by Vietnam. China claims most of the South China Sea and has challenged traditional U.S. naval supremacy in the western Pacific."

    "President Trump is showing Vietnam more love than President Obama.

    LOY: (Speaking Vietnamese).

    SULLIVAN: "In the past, U.S. presidents talked a lot. But there was little action," Voka Loy says. "I think Trump wants to change things." And this carrier visit, Voka Loy and his friends say, shows he's serious about helping Vietnam. They're not looking for a fight, the men insist. They just want China to back off."

    Both China and Vietnam are let by the Communist Party.

    Agree that China's attempts to annex international waters are wrong.

    Not sure if Trump will do anything considering his Bank of China loan and his daughter's businesses.

    "Washington (CNN)US Air Force B-52 Stratofortress bombers flew a training mission over the South China Sea on Tuesday, according to the US military.

    The bombers took off from Andersen Air Force Base on the island of Guam according to a statement from US Pacific Air Forces, which oversees air operations in the region. The flight also involved additional training with F-15 Strike Eagle jets in the vicinity of Okinawa, Japan. The training mission was part of the US Air Force's routine "Continuous Bomber Presence" in the region.
    A US military official told CNN that the two bombers flew between two Chinese claimed features in the Spratly Islands, claims unrecognized by China's neighbors and the US government."

    So how many children are you willing to sacrifice to keep the oil flowing?

    I would say, none.

    The thing is, Petroleum is a limit resource. They aren't making any more of it So we really do need to find alternatives.

    And, now....a reminder of what you are.

    War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

    Um, I'm a decorated veteran... what you got?

    If our freedom was really at stake, we'd have no issue. Exxon's profit margin is not worth a war.
