    Shall a chinese warplane flying by US borders be welcomed with wisthle, flowers, pop corn girls and red carpet?
    US presence in China Seas results of 1944 war progress; It is not eternal and has to cease one day or another, yielding room to the more powerful.

        To be fair, he is also a Russian troll. Let’s give credit where credit is due.

      Do you understand the concept of “international airspace”?

    If this aggressive move was in international airspace, a Jacksonian president might well have ordered it shot down.

    With crumbling infrastructure, still high unemployment, stagnation/regression of our middle class, and record debt, we somehow still find the resource to project air power 6000 miles away from our mainland. Our decline will not be brought about by any foreign power, but by our own imperial overreach.

    Would you go so far as to say he flew “right into the danger zone?”
