Unfortunate Cookie

China can't be happy these days.

Taiwan and Japan are enjoying closer ties.

And North Korea is expressing unhappiness about China's value as an ally.

I thought ancient Chinese patience was supposed to run circles around our short-term spasms of foreign policy. Yet China doesn't seem to be making friends and influencing people in the Western Pacific region.

I would not trade places with China. Not ever.
