War with China?

Posted by Rick · January 18th, 2007 · No Comments

Well, at this point, it’s a little early, really, to know who might be prepping for war with whom. However, with the War President still in place, one has to wonder.

As I indicated, though, you never really know. Is China preparing — as alluded to by this article on their recent sattelite knock-out test — to go to war with the United States? Should we read anything into the Bush Administration’s prior language concerning how we’d react to such tests?

Under a space policy authorized by President Bush in August, the United States asserts a right to “freedom of action in space” and says it will “deter others from either impeding those rights or developing capabilities intended to do so.”

The policy includes the right to “deny, if necessary, adversaries the use of space capabilities hostile to U.S. national interests.” U.S. official: Chinese test missile obliterates satellite (January 18, 2007) CNN.

Every once in awhile, I wonder about the accuracy of my past comment about the possibilities that Bush’s fondness for playing the “national security” card will result in his saying he can’t give up the Presidency in 2008. This seems like a perfect opportunity for him. He’s already stretched our military to the breaking point. And, yet, he can’t stop rattling sabers at other countries. He can’t stop saying things that have people speculating about him potentially invading Iran, or North Korea.

Should we now add China to the list of countries we need to threaten, Bush will dramatically increase the chances that he can play the national security card in 2008.

I don’t blame Bush, by the way. He’s just an ignorant man who I understand has failed at running businesses, failed at running football teams and now — this one I’ve seen for myself — is failing at running the country. But it’s not his fault.

It’s yours.
