11. Yes, they are, and China is leaning hard on India's water supply. They plan to dam the Brahmaputra

....River, which originates in Tibet and waters many nations on the India side. This is only one enormous issue created by China. They want to control India’s water supply for their own use and they want to claim all of the South Pacific for strategic purposes.

I don’t see where the US “pits neighbor against neighbor,” so much as a return to recognizing the complexities of international relations after 4 years of the US having a corrupt government and possibly insane president.

President Obama and then-Vice President Biden were in the right track with the Trans Pacific Partnership. The amount of garbage I read about the TPP from supposed progressives would gag a goat. China is ambitious and ascendant and they don’t play by any rules but their own. We will not win peace or good international relations by ignoring them, yielding to them unthinkingly, or irritating them for sport the way Trump did.

China needs intelligent and aware adversaries, and America needs allies.
