The greatest danger in the world is others misunderstanding our summer goofiness for lack of resolve.
Jonathan V. Last wrote in his preview of next week's Weekly Standard that,
The Financial Times reports that a Chinese general, Zhu Chenghu, recently told a gathering of foreign journalists that China is prepared to use nuclear weapons against America if the United States were to take any action against "Chinese territory." Said General Zhu: "If the Americans draw their missiles and position-guided ammunition on to the target zone on China's territory, I think we will have to respond with nuclear weapons."We just can't afford US Senators appearing in summer teen flicks in this kind of world.
