In other words, if China shoots down a civilian airliner the US won’t do squat. It’s no surprise. That’s what happens when you borrow money. The one you borrow it from is going to tell you how to spend it.

Fearless Leader strikes again.

Then again, he has much in common with his ChiCom comrades, so why is this a surprise...

I am somewhat ambivalent about this, since I would not wish to see innocent civilians killed.

Still, it strikes me as being most unlikely that China would respond in such a ham-handed manner, thereby creating an international consensus against it.

And there is a certain inconsistency here--a mixed message ("We don't agree with your territorial claims, but we are going to act as if we do") that I find rather disturbing...

First Iran now China


China I can understand considering they own us. China stops the money flow and we’re back to the 18th century.

I think it is always a good idea for civilian airliners to ID themselves to anyone who queries them, just for the sake of safety

A nuclear armed Japan? The hell with that. China taking over Japan would be better than that.

Wow! Already surrendered! The Chi-coms know who they are dealing with.

"Too bad they mothballed the USS Missouri, a cannon platform that could reduce these islands to shore rubble in 3 days....."

I have been to the Missouri...the people that take care of her (many retired Navy vets) told me that the Missouri could have a head of steam and be battle ready in very short order. Matter of weeks, they say.

That’s why this isn’t much of a story on the civilian air side. Every commercial IFR flight from here to anywhere is going to file an international flight plan which the Chicoms can read as easy as anyone. The statement allegedly from Japan saying don’t file a flight plan is pretty non-sensical and I guess I don’t even believe that part. Time for a BS flag——wwwhhhheeeeee-—there it goes.

Dittos. I don't like the idea of using the lives of innocent civilian airline passengers as pawns. If a country is threatening to shoot them down, avoid them until the argument is settled. I don't think that's "being a pansy."

I’m not so sure about that. When one owes so much to the bank that not paying it back can cause major problems to the bank, who is the true power? Or are we both caught in a mess.

I wish they would get her ready. Soon we will have to anchor a ship off those islands to insist on Japanese sovereignty, and there would be none batter that a battle wagon like the USS Missouri. Every time the Chi Coms send some one ashore, a volley or two would send them running. With a carrier group on station to assure air superiority, it would work like a charm.

The world knows the US has the WEAKEST president EVER.

Cowardly and likely disloyal to his own country.

Easy-peasy.

In 1966 at UC Santa Barbara, I called it. In my window on the 7th floor of San Miguel Hall was a homemade sign that said - BOMB PEKING.

Dingdingding. The long and short of the matter is that not only has China outlived an amazing amount of predictions of their collapse, they have us by the economic short hairs. And thus the entire western world by extension.

Obummer literally cannot afford to honk them off, much less start a shooting war that would quickly see their slave labor and manufactured goods vanish. Our economy wouldn’t last one week without a 24/7/365 flow of cheap ChiCom goods.

"A nuclear armed Japan? The hell with that. China taking over Japan would be better than that."

So you would be more worried about Japan than China? A lot has changed since WWII. Modern Japan poses no threat to us. Modern China is something else entirely.
