Re: Managing Chinese Threat (09-08-2014)

Even if asean issues a strong worded statement, it's not like the Chinese are going to care much.

These are just optics, asean countries will be stuck in getting strong statements out instead of any real action, just an extra hurdle to jump, but a pointless one

China could access the persian gulf via them (trading with the sunni gulf kingdoms via a shia Iran is problematic) And they co...
