Trump Is Risking War With China
War Is Boring

It wouldn’t surprise me if the Chinese government’s activities in the South China Sea were an attempt to distract their population from some sort of looming environmental or other disaster at home, by trying to show how tough China is.

Now that Trump has unexpectedly taken power and is talking tough back about the South China Sea, it might well be that the Chinese Government is becoming very very anxious that their “tough” bluff might be exposed, with potential disastrous loss of face and perhaps even power at home.

It would be hilarious if the worst imaginable US President ever unintentionally brought down the rancid Chinese Communist government — even funnier than Ronnie Reagan thinking he beat the USSR with his Berlin Wall speech to Mr Gorbachev.
