1. THIS IS GOING TO BE BAD
These to world rivals will be going at it instead of logically settling their complains in court. I guess this current generation is not ready to solve their case in court and plan to fight to the last man?
After the USA gets out of its current war it will be ready for another fight. This time the army will not be so involved fighting over little islands that may have fights in other areas we have no reason to be fighting.
This is the happy fighting world of the GOP.
