I’ve been writing about our growing cold war with China for months now, and arguing we should seriously consider avoiding this build up/possible war. (See here: http://stanrmitchell.com/2012/06/07/america-wake-up-you-bunch-of-stupid-morons.)
Now, Sen. Jim Webb has written about the issue in an Op-Ed in the Wall Street Journal. Webb — a Democrat, keep in mind — advocates that America should maintain its “uncomfortable but necessary role as the true guarantor of stability in East Asia.”
I’m not sure why he just said “East Asia.” Seems to me he should have said “much of the world.” And nowhere in the column does he mention the benefits to America for this build up/possible war with China. Sure, it helps folks in the Philippines, Vietnam, and Japan, but I missed the part where this will help America. Oh wait, he doesn’t mention that…
Here’s his column.

P.S. Please accept the greatest gift I can give.
P.P.S. Thanks to all who continue to make my novels a huge success. Little Man, and the Dixon County War has gone as high as No. 16 on the Amazon UK Paid List (see here and here), landing smack dab between a Louis L’Amour and Zane Grey book. And Sold Out has already gone as high as No. 81 on the Amazon Paid List for the category of War (see here and here). Learn more about both books here. And thanks a million to all my friends and fans who peddle my stuff like street pushers.
