China's Island Building Program

While the Clintons connive their way back into the White House, and ISIS advances through Syria and Iraq, the Chinese Navy continues to build its "unsinkable aircraft carrier."

At a security conference in Singapore, the US Secretary of Defense called for an immediate halt to land reclamations in the South China Sea.

Oddly enough, the Chinese government isn't being too secretive about its intentions.  They even published a white paper outlining their strategy.

As if in response, the Pentagon also published a report to Congress about China's activity.

Defense News compared both papers and outlined China's ambitions.

Last year, the wargame Next War: Taiwan was published.

One of my on-line friends quipped there was no need to buy the game because we'll be living this reality soon enough.
