It's a new world. China and America have no desire to get into proxy wars, try to outspend each other propping up dictators and bad governments that are puppets of each side.

The era of public posturing and brinkship between world superpowers produced nothing positive. We spent our blood and treasure to prop up scumbags. Russia bankrupted itself. We learned. China learned. Don't expect anything different unless they are forced to...aka North Korea.

There is an undeclared war going on. It's just being kept private. Every once in a while something will leak out but mostly its a dark war battled in cyberspace. This new paradigm started 20 years ago. The Chinese stole every single nuclear secret we had. Nuclear plant designs, plans for war, how we store and move nuclear weapons, our future plans...every single thing. Did you hear of a international crisis? Political brinkmanship?

Use some critical thinking skills to figure out why. Either we are total wimps that are scared of the Chinese bully that beat us up and took our lunch money or maybe we had previously done some of the same things to them.

Every war is dangerous and I've tried to educate this board on the dangers of a cyber war. But, you can take comfort that even though this war is not being fought in public, we still have the best cyber fighters and tools on the planet.

If he came home with 2 D's and an F, that's 3 fingers (and this was a big dude). Does that sound hideous and disgusting? Absolutely. Did the kid ever get anything worse than a C after this rule was implemented? Not a chance.

I'm not saying it's morally right or wrong, but does it make the child because of it? Think about that for a second.
