trump and the SCS

Recommended Posts

what do you all make of trump/tillerson's SCS comments?

 

Do you take seriously the notion that they'd blockade China's islands?

 

What does this mean for the topic? My first inclination is that this makes it a lot harder for affs to solve relations. Probably affects the appeasement disad but could go either way. What other implications are there? or does this amount to little more than sabre rattling?

China containment is status quo US policy. This likely doesn't represent a policy change, just sloppy language.

But a blockade is a pretty substantially different policy than the status quo, even if both could be described using the term "containment".
