In response to China’s growing belligerence, we must bolster the defenses of South Korea, Taiwan and Japan. We should allow them to buy our best missiles and encourage Japan to develop its own nuclear arsenal.

These are the best ways to control China’s expansionism and assure peace in the Far East. Talks with China are unproductive. Special interests might not like these ideas but the security of America comes first.
