Showdown or climbdown, the South China Sea is sure to host the next spactacle after Ukraine and Syria, and it promises to be a lot more interesting, if not unnerving, as the so-called Thucydides Trap closes on the region.  The losers are sure to be the smaller countries that depend on commerce to survive.  The map of this region is sure to be redrawn, not with the tip of a pen, but with the point of a sword.

Hang tight.

The curtain rises.

AND, YES, IT IS THE SOUTH CHINA SEA, PLUS THE EAST CHINA SEA, BY THE WAY.

ONCE UPON A TIME, ON A PLANET IN THE MILKY WAY GALAXY . . .  

Business used to be war by other means.  Now, war is business by other means.  The origin and end of both is the preservation of the livelihood and the sovereignty of a people.

The defense of sovereignty translates into the defense of currency, as domestic or international medium of exchange, and the defense of currency equates to the defense of the livelihood of the people.  Sovereignty and livelihood are inseparable.  

The war of business and the business of war converge on the issue of sovereignty, or the right of one people to buy and sell using its own currency, and determine its own norms and the use of its own resources and territory.  

Money can be earned and exchanged, but it must first be produced in the hearth of sovereignty.

Thus is opened the 21st Century edition of the Peloponnesian War.
