Re: Fixed

As Vietnam, the Philippines,Malaysia, and Taiwan had previously done earlier in the South China Sea and which, for example, Vietnam continues to do - and as Japan had also done in close proximity to the region - in 2014 China began extending islands and building on reefs and shoals which it claimed with the energy it typically brings to construction projects. Whether its doing so will provided an excuse for a US administration which seems bent on going to war with China (or at least using the threat of war to get a better «deal») or, on the contrary, whether the facilities placed on these islands will deter the US from military adventures in the region is difficult to predict ; Mr Trump, like Mr Nixon before him, seems to base a good part of his strategy on being unpredictable....

Let us hope that at least some of us survive to critique the aftermath....
