China and Russia to Engage in Joint Military Exercise Story
It's coming up. Remember the exercise that analysts think is a dress rehearsal for an invasion of Taiwan (or Japan too if you really want to get down to it)?
"Chinese state media said yesterday the "Peace Mission 2005" exercises would be held from August 18-25 in and around the Russian far eastern port of Vladivostok and the Chinese coastal province of Shandong . . . [T]he exercises . . . will involve land, air, naval, paratroop and marine forces . . . Russia is now China's leading source of high-technology weaponry . . . about 1,800 troops from Russia would take part in the exercises along with vessels of its Pacific fleet and 17 long-range military cargo planes. 'The joint exercises will also help strengthen the capability of the two armed forces in jointly striking international terrorism, extremism and separatism,' . . . reference to separatism will heighten concerns about the exercises in Taiwan, which enjoys de facto independence from China but which Beijing claims as part of its territory. Chinese and Russian officials have insisted the drills are not aimed at any third party."
Question to Congress, Mr. President, MSM: Why do we ignore the rising Chinese Dragon and fail to see it for the military threat that it is? We are making it's new military power possible with preferential trade treatment?
I have already briefly discussed this topic in the past:

"If you love wealth more than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, depart from us in peace. We ask not your counsel nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you. May your chains rest lightly upon you and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."
