Taiwan Arms Sales, take 45,439

Once again, the US is planning arms sales to Taiwan. Oh no! The Chinese are pissed!

Please. Everyone knew in advance that the Chinese would be pissed, because the Chinese are pissed every single time we sell weapons to Taiwan. What are they doing about it? Complaining to our ambassador, and ending joint exercises.

The second one is a problem. I still hold that the US and the rest of the world should try to work with China as a military power. However, if China won't play ball, that's they're problem. I'm increasingly convinced that China just can't be the threat to us that we once (and many still) think it will.
