CRAZED Trump Nominee Says China Should Be Denied Access to South China Sea Islands

Talk about getting involved in the middle of a foreign entanglement.

U.S. President-elect Donald Trump's nominee for secretary of state said China should be denied access to islands it has built in the contested South China Sea.

From Reuters:
In comments expected to enrage Beijing, Rex Tillerson told his confirmation hearing before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee that China's building of islands and putting military assets on those islands was "akin to Russia’s taking Crimea” from Ukraine. 
Asked whether he supported a more aggressive posture toward China, he said: “We’re going to have to send China a clear signal that, first, the island-building stops and, second, your access to those islands also is not going to be allowed.”...
Tillerson called China's South China Sea island-building and declaration of an air defense zone in waters of the East China Sea it contests with Japan "illegal actions."
"They’re taking territory or control, or declaring control of territories that are not rightfully China’s," he said.

  1. Rex Tillerson is just as insane as Mad Dog Mattis if he thinks he can get the Chinese to back down on this issue after Donald Trump has continueally insulted and villified the Chinese leadership for the past 18 months. The Chinese military will attack first when their interests are threaten in the South China Sea by Donald Trump's Mad Dogs of War. Well I guess this is a quick and easy way to declare Martial Law at a national level while we wait for our big opportunity to glow in the dark.
