DRAGON SEEN SWIMMING WITH OLIVE BRANCH IN TEETH NEAR BRUNEI. DON'T BE FOOLED, ITS SAME OLD DRAGON.
|Don't be fooled by the dragon, at best you'll only end up like St. George here at worse, you'll end up like his horse|
The visit by China's naval hospital ship ARK OF PEACE to Brunei is just another case of the Dragon slipping a mailed fist inside a silk glove. The dragon may participate in regional cooperative naval exercises, including one involving the U.S.even while its Coast Guard like vessels patrol other people's islands and its marines occupy some of the same islands, and it continually insists that it has rights to islands a stone's throw from it neighbor's beaches and 930 miles from its own. It is always two steps forward and one step back and it will continue until the Dragon has eaten everything, including any claims by little Brunei to any offshore exclusive economic zone. Concerted action now by all regional neighbors on a serious naval/coast guard build up, insistence on better behavior, clear signals by India and Australia coupled with America's "Pivot to the Pacific" could drive the Dragon back into its den. Failure to meet the Dragon head on now means that if free men win at all, it will be at a terrible costs , we'll be as exhausted St. George in the painting above. Here is the story of the ARK of PEACE as told by the Commie Dragon itself. Don't be fooled Dragons speak with forked tongues.
