The Second Cold War?

Cal Thomas illuminates on China's stockpiling of weapons and how it defines what they're not telling us about their foreign policy.

No one fears India or Pakistan because they have nuclear weapons. Most of them are aimed at each other, and that should probably concern us most considering the acrimony between the two countries. Yet, the fact they are capable puts them among military powers of concern for those that desire peace.

Maybe it's our inability to perceive real aggression from the one truly ancient culture of China, but few outside of political wonks and pundits give much thought that China might be anxious to stretch their political clout beyond their hegemony or sphere of influence.

Maybe it's time to give China some more thought. The comments from Rumsfield, America's Chicken Little, might actually have some credence.
