    Re: Floating casino still in dry dock

    As regards air defence identification zones, I note that Britain maintains one, Japan itself maintains one so immense it practically grazes Taiwan, Canada maintains one and the USA imposes to no less than four across the world. Why the Chinese shouldn't lay one out on the doorstep to its own defensive heartland I'm not quite sure.

    It's disputed airspace. Very disputed. China is playing their usual games .

    Anyone want to know whether commissioning the Varyag worked?

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    If China were of an aggressive nature, their sheer size alone would make them a primary threat to the Western World but on the whole I think that so long as everyone stays out of their hair, they're happy to keep to themselves. Their culture seems to be Westernising, but in their own time. If only that were the same as all the other Super Powers.

    And here's the Liaoning, live-firing in the China Sea just one month before Donald Trump takes up the White House slack.

    The timing of the Chinese leadership is impeccable as always, a twenty year plan coming home to roost with a month to spare, step by methodical step, right down to building suitable planes to match the Varyag.

    By the time Trump's up for re-election there will be three operating Chinese aircraft carrier battle groups, one in the East China Sea and two in the South China Sea. Let's see if he's still accepting phone calls from Taiwan by then.

    My word, President Trump has stirred a major response with his provocation. They'll be cruising hull-down off San Francisco at this rate.
