Head West Old China

head to the map room

From our point of view from the other side of the Pacific, Americans tend to focus on the points of first resistance from the People's Republic of China - Taiwan, South China Sea, etc.

Is that really what China is worried about? Is she really building her huge Navy to challenge us somewhere west of Wake, or is she thinking of something else we are just too parochial to see?

Did you notice that FranceUK, and even Germany have decided they need to head east of Suez to spend some time in the Indo-Pacific theater? 

Connected?

As with most things, it is helpful to take a deep breath and ask yourself - what does the map say?
