 While everyone has been focused on Russia''s invasion. (or whatever it is they are doing) in Ukraine...
   China has driven Filipino fishermen out of the waters around Scarborough Shoals with watercannon, declared two new national holidays dedicated to hate'n on Japan, is well along in the construction of two more aircraft carriers, and has a total of four in the pipeline. Additionally, they have put out video purporting to show that their new DF-41 road mobile  ICBM is operational. All of this comes on the heels of this...

  "[We] concluded that the PLA has been given the new task to be able to conduct a short sharp war to destroy Japanese forces in the East China Sea following with what can only be expected a seizure of the Senkakus or even a southern Ryukyu [islands] — as some of their academics say.”

Seriously...what could go wrong here?

Territorial claims, South China Sea

This is not to say that the issues with Russia should be ignored, but perspective is important and our media needs to get better at multitasking.

1 At this point, I'd settle for our media to just get better at monotasking, so long as the task was simply doing their job.  I can't remember the last time I saw or read a reporter actually reporting the factual news.  If we ever get a provider in that market, they'll be able to laugh all the way to the bank.

I'd make another comment about Foggy Bottom getting better at multitasking instead, but Smart Diplomacy! ("Jaime Retief, please pick up the Red Courtesy Phone...") has wiped out any hope I had in ever getting that bit of change.
