If We're Paying the Chinese to Send Troops to Wherever, Then We Don't Have Anyone to Blame But Ourselves. No, My Problem Is…

According to the Washington Post, China [is] Filling Void Left by West in U.N. Peacekeeping.

Now some of my more hawkish Japanese friends will say that this is just a cover for China's militaristic ambitions. Be it Lebanon, be it Somalia, they are mere training grounds for a much bigger prize. Yes, you guessed it: they are prepping to invade Japan.

After all, Japan has everything China doesn't have: lots and lots of fresh water, private-sector high tech, and those cool anime that we just can't seem to get the hang of. Yet. Never mind the 130 million Japanese; they'll fall into line once we knock some sense into them with our 3,000,000-or-so People's Liberation Army.


Except I won't. And do you know why? Because it's stupid, that's why.

Now, do you think the feeling is mutual?
