    You are really weird.
    In the same page, you went from one end to the other end ,180 degree about face, on the same subject; naval operations of various countries in SCS.
    I think too much free time and an idle baby boomer don't make anybody any good.
    Bless your heart LoL.

    I like his nutty sense of humor. He hit ludicrous mode.

    As I see it, that's just nuts, sans sense of humor, and ludicrous it is, no doubt.
    Bless his heart.

    The CSBA report on "Maritime Competition in a Mature Precision-Strike Regime" by Krepinevich is where China dominating the SCS comes from.

    It outlines the SCS as a future Chinese bastion.

    Plus I don't see the US fighting just for "freedom of navigation". It's just not worth it, for the US or China to actually go to war over.

    Needless knee jerking if you ask me.
    If PRC fires their ballistic missiles the US will have to respond by shooting their own ICBMs towards China resulting to MAD.
    I really do not think PRC is willing to call that bluff.
    Even if US does not the seat at UNSC will not save PRC from a world wide embargo stopping all economic trades dead in their tracks.
    Basically it's not worth it.
