    The incoming Trump administration just drew a
    red line in the South China Sea that it cannot enforce without going to war with China.

    When questioned on the Trump administration’s stance on the South China Sea during his confirmation hearing, Secretary of State nominee Rex Tillerson said that, “We’re going to have to send China a signal that… your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed.” The only way to block China’s access to the islands it occupies in the South China Sea would be to enact a naval blockade, which is an act of war.

    This is a dangerous and irresponsible policy statement that only has two realistic consequences: enforcement, which means conflict, or backing down, which erodes the already troubled credibility of the incoming administration in Asia.

    Naval blockade is an open declaring of war. War with China is war with Russia.

    No. Russia will not be neutral, at least becouse we are part of SCO. We understand, that after China we shall be next target. And there is no problem to fight on two fronts, especially if one of them is EU.
