The Upcoming War?

America is no longer the super-awesome-over-the-top nation it once was. And I’m not talking about the internal problems the United States faces today, issues that have been suppressed for so long that its all coming back in destructive implosions. I’m talking about Americas international power, and its ability to keep aggressive nations at bay.

In this spirit, I want to share two links, one for NBC news, and another from Global Times, about a situation that has been ongoing for awhile near the Island nation of Taiwan.

And here is the one from Global times.

Both articles talk about the ability of the United States to protect the Island of Taiwan, a nation under constant vigilance, holding on to its democratic ways. This possible conflict is talked about on the news often, but not as much in social circles.

What do you think? Will America be drawn into a conflict with China in a more military-centric way? Would the United States be willing to get involved in a conflict half across the world?
