Forget China, we have Sheehan to talk about

“A joint Chinese and Russian military exercise set to begin tomorrow is meant as a political signal to the United States, in addition to helping Moscow showcase its weapons for sale to China, U.S. defense and intelligence officials said yesterday. "For the Chinese and the Russians, this is a message to the United States," one U.S. official said. "They want to see our bases in Central Asia and presence in Asia cut back." The fact that the United States was not invited to observe the war games is a sign of the anti-U.S. nature of the exercises, said several officials, who spoke on the condition of anonymity.” (Washington Times)

Um, you think? But again, this story isnt important. Sheehan, she’s important, but the looming issue with China? Naw, we can ignore them. When will our country wake up? Will it be too late?
