The Closest Precedent to Trump’s Taiwan Phone Call Almost Sparked a War
War Is Boring

China is up to all sorts of nefarious acts in the South China Sea among other locales. We are clearly headed towards some form of showdown within our lifetimes. I’d like to point out that so far all of our posturing has done nothing to slow down China and I would rather be making phone calls now vs. launching missiles later. China isn’t stupid but they no we are extremely adverse to taking them on directly….their actions seem to portend this. You focus on the negative (Of course, because it involves Trump) but there could be positive outcomes to this as well.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
