For John, BLUF: This is foolhardy and, I hope, a bluff. Nothing to see here; just move along.
Missed this item from the British Independent when it came out Friday last. Mr Ian Johnston reporting.
China plans to build nuclear power stations in the South China Sea to establish “effective control” of disputed islands, officials have reportedly said.And, in case you think this is just about the South China Sea, the sub-headline was:
Beijing says Japan should ‘exercise caution in its own words and deeds, and stop hyping up and interfering’ in a dispute some fear could lead to warBut, back to nuclear reactors, where are the Environmentalists protesting this kind of foolish action on artificial islands in a Typhoon alley?
