EXILE ON FENGLUCIA

Life on an alien land
theeconomist:

Tomorrow’s cover today: there are ways to reduce the threat to stability that an emerging superpower poses.

If one takes last issue’s map on US troop deployment in South Korea and Japan (http://www.economist.com/node/21551511) into consideration, China’s military rise is only logical for reasonable self-defence. Unlike the Americans, the Chinese are not sending offensive troops everywhere across the globe. Like the analogy I used before, if one sets his bulldog wondering free outside my yard, why would it be threatening to others if I raise the fences to protect my family?
