The price of oil and our West Philippine Sea fortunes
At an oil price below $40 per barrel, Moscow's re-armament dreams will start to evaporate...
Unfortunately, Beijing's will gather even more steam...
And if you are Beijing, once you are awash with cutting-edge weapon systems, which would be an easier target?
The vast mineral-rich Russian territories east of the Urals? Or those miniscule rock outcroppings in the West Philippine Sea?
Brilliant ex-KGB man Vladimir Putin can easily figure that out.
His Georgia and Ukraine (mis) adventures are beginning to bite him from behind.
He better reverse course soon before Beijing grabs a big piece of Asian Russia...
