WEAK PRESIDENT: Obama Throws Japan Under The Bus And Bows To China
United, American and Delta have said they have begun notifying Chinese authorities of flight plans when traveling through China’s ADIZ in response to the Obama administration’s request.
This is a slap in the face to Tokyo. And since Japan has refused Beijing’s demand, just how does the administration’s capitulation end the risk of confrontation? As China’s power grows, so will its assertiveness.
Tokyo rightly fears that complying with the rules would add legitimacy to Chinese claims to the islands that sit below the now-contested air space. And these aren’t the only islands within the scope of Beijing’s territorial ambitions.
Pissing off our allies and appeasing our enemies has become the trademark of this President.
