#1 ION BIGNEWSNETWORK > [Sina] US MILITARY AMBITION IN EAST ASIA FOILED BY REALITY.
ARTIC = ...
- US has too many Debts, no longer has enough $$$.
- US Navy CVBGS dare not patrol at will widin the "First Island Chain".
- New USDOD concept of "Offshore Control", as empowered by resort to China-containing/hugging, anti-PLA "economic blockades", to serve as adjunct to an increasingly obsolete "Air-Sea Battle" whcih the US still intends to use vee China beyond the "First Island Chain" - SEE FIRST ABOVE.
* SAME > [CNBC] 2013: THE YEAR JAPAN INCREASES ITS MILITARY ROLE IN ASIA?
* SAME > [Sina] JAPAN AIRBORNE BRIGADE [paratroopers] MULLS DRILL TO RETAKE ISLANDS.
Overwhelming Paratrooper + Heliborne. Commando-SPECOPS Assault, ,+ irregardless of any mass casualties incurred by same, is likely the main method by which China + PLA will conventionally strike TAIWAN.

* SAME > THE STARK EVIDENCE OF US, UK NAVAL DECLINE.
IMO Artic also read, DECLINE OF THE UNSC AS WE KNOW IT.
Not good news for desired future OWG-NWO as Seapower, along wid ground elements, is likely to remain in the forefront = "tip of the spear/baton" as per post-UNO OWG Peacekeeping.
MORESO IFF THE US = US-ALLIES FAIL UTTERLY IN ELIMINATING THE ROOT CAUSES OF MILITANT OR RADICALIST ISLAMISM, WHERE THE ONLY COUNTRIES, IDEOS THAT HAVE TO CHANGE ARE THOSE IN THE NON-ISLAMIC WORLD.
INSTEAD OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD ADOPTING WESTERN-STYLE LIBERAL DEMOCRACY/SECULARISM, THE US-WEST OR NON-ISLAMIC WORLD BECAME STEADILY BUT IRREVERSIBLY ISLAMIZED BECAUSE OF THE DRIVE TO FORCIBLY IMPOSE LEFTISM-GLOBALISM = GLOBAL SOCIALISM.
OH THE HIJAB-MANIY!
