Jared McKinney — Why America—and Its Political Leaders—Should Think Twice about Poking China


Good response to a hawkish approach to China in the South China Sea. While the author is responding to an article in The National Interest, it is an argument that is commonly made that is based on dodgy assumptions and poor logic.

Someone needs to write a companion piece at The National Interest about similar assumptions about Russia that are equally dubious.

I have no doubt that "poking China" is the result of a careful analysis of the situation. America doesn't pay its political leaders big bucks for nothing.
