Strategy Page article here.
and don't dare write against them. I got blitzed after one article by Chinese trolls saying that there was evidence of stone age Chinese tools on the small islands. By that definition, Norway owns Canada...and ignore the history of Chinese once owning Viet Nam...
and yesterday (no link) there was an article that the Chinese guaranteed they won't try to grab Mongolia.
The real loser here is actually Russia: If the Chinese aggression isn't stopped, they will try to grab Siberia.
The headline in today's Manila Bulletin is about our peacekeepers returning from Liberia, and there is some worry they will bring Ebola back with them.
Not to mention the danger of it coming here if one of our nurses/doctors comes in contact with it and brings it home.
