"Hello? Uh, hello? Hello, Li? Listen, I can't hear too well, do you suppose you could turn the music down just a little? A-ha, that's much better. Yeah, yes. Fine, I can hear you now, Li. Clear and plain and coming through fine. I'm coming through fine too, eh? Good, then. Well then, as you say, we're both coming through fine. Good. Well, it's good that you're fine, and - and I'm fine. I agree with you. It's great to be fine. [Laughs] Now then, Li, you know how we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the bomb. The BOMB, Li. The hydrogen bomb. Well now, what happened is, uh, one of our base commanders, he had a sort of - Well, he went a little funny in the head. You know. Just a little funny. And uh, he went and did a silly thing..."

vygramul: Serious Post on Serious Thread: vygramul: Lee Jackson Beauregard: Scenario 1:

    * China:  "Them islands is ours!"
    * Obama:  "Send in the B-52s."
    * Morans:  "How come 0bama provoke China how come?"

Scenario 2:

    * China:  "Them islands is ours!"

    * Morans:  "How come 0bama betray our ally Japan how come?"

This.

So vote Repubican?

Both Decisions Are Wrong So Vote Republican!

You just solved the mystery of the Welsh language. Turns out they are a remnant of an ancient civilization that invented Acronyms and Text-Speak. The civilization fell when everyone started pronouncing the acronyms and text-speak for every day use.

Based on that map, the area of ocean in question is being defended twice, and so should be quite safe. I don't know what the big deal is here.

So let me get his straight...they're having a dispute over less than 3 square miles of islands?

How about we bomb them back into the ocean and we call it a day.

The "East China Sea Air Defense Zone" is not China, subby. It's an area of international waters that China has unilaterally laid claim to. Sort of how Libya drew a "line of death" across the Gulf of Sidra back in '81. They were right, it WAS a line of death, but only for Libyans. I doubt the Chinese are going to push it beyond a bit of buzzing.

Some Bass Playing Guy: FTA: "The aircraft, which were unarmed"

They're not "nuclear bombers" if they're not carrying nukes.


And nothing says "don't worry, we're just flying over" your hot brown underwear zone like a B-52, oh, 2 B-52's, which exist solely to dump massive ordnance on targets below.

Read up on the defensive uses of HAARP. There's a reason we stopped giving a damn about an orbit-based anti-missile platform ("Star Wars")

Personally, I won't be losing any sleep over a threat from China or any other b*tch a*s country that thinks they can challenge the United States of America.
