Chinese Power

http://www.defensenews.com/story/defense/air-space/strike/2015/11/08/china-expands-presence-fighters-woody-island/75147522/

China is doing what Communist governments usually do.  They are expanding their territory at the expense of other nations.  They are posting advanced fighter planes to patrol some of the South China Sea.

China claims the sea is theirs.  Despite no historic evidence this is true, and despite the claims of all their neighboring states to the same territory.  China is building artificial islands in the area to both re-enforce their claims in a physical and military manner.

China is building missiles to sink destroyers.  They are bullying the Philippines.  They are threatening other nations and marching towards conquest of these seas.  They are building bases in Africa and around the world.  They are preparing to be able to project power by having bases everywhere; that's the view from the Hysterical Right Wing.
