Wishful thinking, but I'm on the same page. We can only hope....

Some people really don't think before sharing their thoughts.
Agreed. This is a scary proposition for some. Does it mean the US should get involved? I don't know, but people shouldn't be so insensitive to the fate of families of others.

Let them fight alone with bamboo spears and whatever left over American arms they have left.
Agreed. They got what they wanted, right? Oh wait I guess now's the time where they do the 180 and decide they actually f'd up. Whoops.

As far as you're concerned, YOU probably don't give a shit. But it's so easy to not give a shit when you don't live there nor have relatives there that you love.

OK, fair enough, still didn't prevent US gov going in there, bomb everything in the name of looking for "weapon of mass destruction", and in reality, taking control of their oil.

Posting in a bimmer forum about politics will certainly get you far.

I'm merely answering you questions. I couldn't care less about getting in a political debate on here, or anywhere else in life, I hate it.

That was because the US was smart enough to say that the evil dictator had chemical and nuclear weapons and they need to be destroyed and everyone should stand behind the US to save the kids.

And no one cares now because the US is too worried about Kony 2012 video and they must save the children.

Get the theme here, you have to be saving kids to get any attention.

Just checked Wiki, it looks like the Chinese did discover the islands first and they have been fishing there since 600BCE...

see there is always two sides and yet again it is about oil

Quote:
On May 23, 2011, Philippine President Benigno Aquino III warned the Chinese defense minister of a possible arms race in the region if tensions worsened over disputes in the South China Sea. Aquino said he told visiting Chinese Defense Minister Liang Guanglie in their meeting that such an arms race could result if there were more encounters in the disputed and potentially oil-rich Spratly islands.

It didn't matter whether they had nuclear arms or not. They denied UN Inspectors, which they agreed to let in after the first war, which was reason enough to go back to war.

Actually it is call a bluff, Saddam was trying to bluff the world and the US knew it, Saddam had to make Iran and Israel think he had WMDs otherwise they would have toasted his ass. He just made it look that way. Go ask Colin Powell, he was the one Bush blamed for bad intelligence.

The reals reason the US went in there was to establish a base of operation to go after Afgan and keep a close eye on Iran. They could no longer operate out of Saudi Arabia, the main reason Bin Laden site as attaching the US. The Saudis wanted the US out because it was causing them problems with their neighbor and citizens. The oil was the icing on the cake.

WMD's was the red heron the US use to get the US people's backing and good old Saddam played right into it all.

Where were the threads defending IRAQ when US/British troops invaded IRAQ? Went in there because there were "missiles", but none were found.

The truth is you get owned when you're lesser in power. Exactly what simsims stated.

So the US went ino Iraq so they could send their aircraft across Iran's SAM rich country to attack a country they already had aircraft in???? Also the Saudi's wanted the US out but they are publicly buying billions worth of US aircraft??? And that causes hundreds if not thousands of US contractors to upkeep? Plus military for leasons. I think Iraq should of worried about the States and not neighboring countries because his bluff caused the US to go in.

China's Maritime Surveillance Plans

http://www.stratfor.com/

China's bolstered maritime enforcement fleet and assertive maneuvering will increase the likelihood of confrontation in a region rife with other claimants.
