News Could the east Asia disputes lead to another big war?

  1. Dec 25, 2012 #1
    I'm surprised this hasn't been discussed more. Essentially we have a situation of increasingly aggressive behavior on the part of China in both the East and South China Seas. This to me looks a lot like turn of the 20th century Europe and we have another Wilhelmite Germany on our hands. So the question remains, when will this erupt into a massive crisis and when will it finally lead to war?

    Well, the US Government won't let the PM of Taiwan enter the US. Almost all countries don't recognize Taiwan. PRC has the law on its side. Chiang basically stole the place.

    Maybe PRC will threaten to sell all of its US bonds. The US might cave. But I say no war. It just isn't worth it.
