    A municipality based in Woody Island that claims jurisdiction for all the Suth China Sea? Absurd.
    The U.S. borders the Gulf of Mexico, but you don’t see us clamoring for sovereignty. It’s international waters. We’re OK with the name, too.
    The Chinese are ‘cruisin’ for a bruisin.’ They have been empowered by weak Neville Chamberlain-types in the West that have ignored this ill-mannered brat for too long. For all their newly-found military prowess, their current societal stability and success is a house of cards. Watch how six American submarines will bring this facade crumbling down.

    Finally……no wonder China wants only bilateral negotiations with the weaker neighbors. That way it can bully them. Come to find out their claim can’t hold water. And they said, “Absolute Sovereignty”. It was nothing but a concocted scam, I meant the nine dash line.

    Just grit your teeth until we can get rid of this moslem trained, America hating solipsist. At least, as bad as they are, the Republibums will slow him down until we can get a real man, like Ben Carson, into the White House. Then watch both parties cringe.
