Too aggressive towards both China and Russia? Hell no; Obama was way too soft. it's time to ramp i ...

I don't think simple aggression is the solution to the China and Russia problems. They are very different!
1. Russia is a temporary problem: a less-powerful country that belongs in the European Union (once the EU recovers from its current economic and political problems). With a population of only 146 million and GDP of only $ 2 trillion (compared to EU 500 million and $ 17 trillion) Russia can no longer be a "world power". With Russia it is just a matter of time before it is absorbed into the EU. Western policy should be aimed at persuading the Russian public that the current government is simply causing them economic suffering in a totally-vain attempt at an impossible imperialism.
2. China IS a world power. The aim should be to remove the irritants between China and the US and lure China into the liberal democratic lifestyle of the West. In return for overthrowing the Kim regime (and removing all nukes) in North Korea, US should withdraw all its forces from ROK. Korea's status re: China should be analogous to Canada's status with the US (basically a satellite!). (I'm a Canadian - and quite content to be under US control!). Between them, US and China can control the course of world history (prevent all major wars). So they must become allies.
What's on your mind...

You can say the same about the Chinese provinces.

And Wales, N.Ireland, Scotland.  The list is endless, yawn.

I responded to a comment by Dusty on page 3.

You take the official communist Chinese line so beloved of all Communists from the former Soviet ...

I don't see a lot of Celtic eagerness. The English and the Irish have been fighting for centuries, the Scott's are edging ever closer to independence and there is no love lost between the English and the Welsh. But we are stronger together even if we resent our differences and it is nonsense to think that you can solve your problems by replacing one government with another.

CHINA IS REASSURING ITSELF THAT IT DOES NOT HAVE ANY MAJOR PROBLEM WITH TRUMP BY CALLING HIM A "BABY" IN DIPLOMACY.  EVER HEARD OF THE ENFANT TERRIBLE?  IT WILL BE AN EXPERIENCE CHINA WILL WANT TO BUT CANNOT FORGET.  CHINESE MEDIA IS IN DENIAL, PUBLISHING OTHER NEWS TO DROWN OUT THIS CRISIS IN THE MAKING.  JUST LIKE THE JAPANESE ATTACK ON KOREA, LUSHUN, AND WEIHAIWEI.  AH-Q-ISM MAKES A HERO OUT OF A WIMP IN HIS OWN EYES, ALWAYS REASSURING HIMSELF THAT HE HAS THE MORAL HIGH GROUND EVEN WHEN TRAMPLED DOWN TO THE MUD.
