History repeating, if we let it.

Real Clear Politics has an excellent read concerning China's "unprecedented need for resources" which "is now driving China's foreign policy." It has happened before, within the last hundred years, that a regional power in the Far East has developed a voracious need for energy which directly threatened the United States specifically and the free world generally. Let us hope that our policy makers have learned the lessons of lack of preparedness and appeasement which led to the "surprise" attack at Pearl Harbor by Japan and take serious the threat posed by an expansionist, energy hungry China.

Thanks to The Center for Security Policy for this from David Zweig and Bi Jianhai.
