Phillipines asks US for Help to Defend Against China.
President Obama to stem this threat has sent 3,500 Marines to Australia as a show of force and another 9,000 Marines from Japan and Okinawa to Guam and Wake Islands where the US houses part of its B-52 Strike Force in the Asia Pacific.
Moreover, he has shifted our Military and Naval assetsou with as much as 60% of our Naval Strike Force to be moved into the Asia Pacific to Defend Our Interests and friends to hopefully thwart China's threatening posture in the region.
Very simply China would only need to shut down the supply chain which would throw the US into Financial Anarchy and Mass Unemployment. Leaving the US unable to cloth, supply other goods, and more importantly without replacement parts for its cars and other equipment.
Should the US and the rest of the world continue to do business with China, particularly when our National Security is at Risk?
