After protecting ships from pirate attacks, These ships should also be around to maintain peace in that region especially in gulf of Hamuz. China has a responsibility to keep that part of the world stable for the humanity sack.

China is an amazing paradox in a time of numerous possibilities... To wit...It is sometimes unfortunate that our purity of purpose is in inverse ratio to the goodness of the cause...ergo... Could ONE have known to just what extent Moore"s law would take man durning his intellectual conflict of nature and mind to which Acheron would await the outcome..."Flectere si nequeo superos acheronta movebo" And lastly...Pure reason never relates directly to the objects...but to the concepts which understanding frames in regard to the objects...Hence... The world presents to us so immeasurable a stage of variety...That even with such knowledge in its infinite extent and unlimited divisibility of its parts...We are left to wonder...What is our "True" Raison d" etere!!!
