#1 China is a bad neighbor. Vietnam would much rather deal with us than China. Why South Korea and Japan are acting so badly is something I don't understand. Economic restraints will dampen China's ambitions I believe. Major influx to Africa, Latin America, and yes, Greenland is not so rosy. Second generations are not pure bloods when mixed race. They will distance themselves in my opinion with China. They will be considered less to those in China.

#2 Agreed. Xi's ego is writing checks his economy can't cash. We're all on a countdown to war as a frustrated Xi will eventually lash out. It's either than or give him everything he wants: the first & second island chain (and that's just for starters).

#3 Perhaps some USN RQ-21 drones along with a sprinkly of advisors and contractors would be of some assistance to VN ?

#4 A couple of Soryu class submarines would also come in right handy.
