I was just wondering about China. In particular, I’ve been wondering why our governing elites—the very best people from the very best schools, y’know—apparently haven’t been wondering about China post-Crimea. I’m guessing that our ruling class’s timeline doesn’t run past the next election, so it’s irrelevant to them that a shoe might drop by November 2016. (The Chinese leadership may suspect that, left to its own devices, America will unravel itself more effectively than anything they could do to undermine us, but they cannot entirely ignore their nationalistic populace.)To be fair, Obama supported Japan in its island dispute with China.
If getting caught flatfooted by a bear was bad, wait till we’re caught flatfooted by a dragon.
