" Today the Philippines changed its policy on allowing foreign research vessels to study the Benham Rise, 250 kilometers off the east coast of the Philippines. In 2012 the UN agreed that the resource rich Benham Rise was indeed part of the Philippines coastal waters and the name was then changed to the Philippines Rise. This is basically an underwater volcano that did not turn into an island. It is a large (250 kilometers square) plateau that is in an area where most of the water is 5,000 meters deep. But the rise is mostly 3,000 meters high and a "peak" rises out of that plateau and reaches to within 50 meters of the surface. The rise is a rich fishing area but also may have underwater oil and gas deposits. China has never made a claim on the Benham Rise but that could change if the payoff were large enough. China had asked permission to send a research ship to study the area and at first the Philippines agreed. But the public reaction was hostile to that, given the Chinese aggression off the west coast in the South China Sea. So the government withdrew that permission and banned any foreign research vessels from studying the Philippines Rise unless they received specific permission. Foreign fishing vessels are banned from the Philippines Rise as well…"

(Warning thick layers of sarcasm ahead)

Don't worry about their apparent aggressive military takeover of that part of the world. I think we simply misunderstand them and should keep giving them the benefit of the doubt.

We shouldn't rush to decipher the meaning of what they are doing internally either. I'm sure they mean well:

So we shouldn't overreact and panic. The poor Chinese in Taiwan are also safe from the communist government on the mainland.

And just wait. When we finally send our first manned mission to Mars and need help rescuing one of our astronauts, they'll rush to offer us help. Yes. I just finally caught up and watched The Martian. Nothing in the film was as difficult to believe as that one part. :)

PS. And don't worry about what they're doing in Afghanistan. Im sure it's completely benign. After all, China is our friend. Just keep your eyes focused elsewhere (like over on North Korea and Iran).

Yeah, the new Citizen Trust Scores Program is one of the first signs that the Red Dragon is preparing to shed its recent disguise of freedom, liberty and free enterprise.

The Citizen Trust Score Program will involve a new push for increased internet surveillance, as well as new programs to reward loyalty and punish perceived lapses.

There's a new crop of the indoctrinated under development:

There might even be a new wave of "suicides":
