#3 The USA fell off the fiscal cliff years before. Like Wiley Coyote, but without the realization of what is to come.

#8 A number of Guam patrons, both local + stateside, argue that only the outbreak of a major war can save the US Economy from the US Govt, as the GOP-DEMS have shown its more important to get re-elected + NOT be held accountable for anything bad than to effec or permanently solve a Prob(s).

SNAFU > CHINA-VS-JAPAN IN EAST ASIA = Once again, the US has NOT been in a direct military confrontation wid a major Nuclear Power since 1962 [Cuba = POTUS JFK] + 1973 [Yom Kippur = POTUS Nixon], both vee the then-USSR. HISTORY SUGGESTS THAT CHINA WILL LIKELY UNILATER SHOOT FIRST - THERE WILL BE JAPANESE CASUALTIES + QUITE POSSIBLY US CASUALTIES.

* DEFENCE.PK/FORUMS > CHINESE THINK-TANK: WAR IS INEVITABLE BETWEEN CHINA + JAPAN.

IIUC ARTIC = CHINA is willing to attack Japan unless Japan makes concessions on the Senkakus + Okinawa. China wants unchallenged "strategic access" for the PLA into WESTPAC from NE Asia = Okinawa-Taiwan Straits + ITS NOT TAKING "NO" FOR AN ANSWER.
