    The time has come for the US to withdraw from the Far East acknowledging the new and ever growing power of China, espescially concerning the Chinese sea. It should start pressing Taiwan to seek compromise. with China, which is an explosive future issue. The Korean peninsula is super-explosive and only China is able to reign in and control (at least to a certain level) the North-Koreans. China is not a kind of Iran but for real and just like the US rightfully does not allow Russian or Chinese military in Cuba or Venezuela, so will China decide one day in the not so far future that it will not allow US navy and troops circling around them anymore. The US in turn can get it's fill concerning currency- and trade war, reducal of bond debts. Tea Baggers who think reading the constitution aloud together will make the US the sole megapower again are the most dangerous nutcases in this, far more dangerous then the North-Koreans. This is a case of 'yankee, go home'.
