Skimming the headlines scrolling past my eyes, I've noticed a current fascination.....

with "China War" scenarios using some oxygen in the fear-o-sphere.

Military types calling for additional troops and technologies deployments in the western Pacific. Some worry about China swallowing Taiwan at some future point in time. Others worry that China will occupy the pedestal of super-est superpower and that the US has got to beef up to keep up. Haven't seen any concern about corrupt totalitarianism in the Philippines though or the threat of Japan's continued dependence on nuclear power to meet their energy needs.

I know there are some A-class thinkers at DU and would like to read their 'knowledge of' or 'take on' this stuff. Anybody know anything or is this just neo-con fearmongering celebrating the fact that a Democrat is POTUS and they still own the media? Like the Pacific itself, these are big questions. Are they legitimate?

1. What news feeds are you scrolling?

I haven't seen any such things on the ones I look at.

2. I guess it's my microsoft homepage, bing or something.

It compiles headlines from multiple sources. NYT, WP, AP, Guardian and many others.

3. We've always been at war with East Asia

To quote 1984 We've always been at war with East Asia. The global bank block depend on Government deficit spending, and Military Industrial spending is a type of welfare to the rich that also creates a class of workers who vote for conservatives.
