  4. I’m thinking: If a fleet of foreign warships were to be sailing in the Gulf of Mexico, what would America do? I’m guessing we’ll probably react in a similar way. I mean, we do already have a bunch of military bases surrounding China; I think there are about 400.

These thoughts are quite troubling to me.
