On the other hand, I wonder if this does not make Vladimir Putin just a wee bit nervous.

The Chinese have never been famous at sea, but they historically do very well on land.

"Golden Horde" anyone?

Chinese Army MREs (Meals ready to Eat), rice and dried fish.

No need for expensive and bulky MREs. A pound of rice can go a long way. More room for ammo.

IIRC the Chinese went to a lot of trouble to keep the Golden Horde out - but I take your point.

Where may the greatest supply or relatively accessible natural gas and petroleum be found? Eastern Siberia and Kazakhstan, both of which are a relatively short march from China’s own borders.

Of course, if we see a great deal of activity moving various heavy transport to these points, it would be pretty indicative of something.

Maybe the Chinese want to be Santa Claus and bring some cheer to the children in these provinces.

Russia has nukes and there’s no doubt Vlad would use them. Theoretically, Japan does not and if they did they most likely would not use them. The US will not get involved despite our treaties. We’ve practically stood down the Navy too. We have given China a once in a century window of opportunity.
