Insidious Insularity

In a blatantly provocatorial action clearly designed to jab a sharp stick up the ever-peaceable John Bolton, the Heathen Chinee have expressed annoyance at the US Navy for sailing close to the aptly-named Mischief Reef while Washington starts a trade war. As the British Empire's greatest ally, the United States is naturally heir to the Freedom of the Seas, with all the rights of exploration, exploitation and enforcement accruing thereunto, hithertofore and in perpetuity and without regard to greatness-limiting laws, prosperity-sapping treaties or the pettifogging requirements of international diplomacy. Meanwhile, the Heathen Chinee are building all manner of artificial islands in the South China Sea, doubtless in order to promote and intensify their climate change hoax; while the measured and statesmanlike responses of the Trumpster and his hydrophobic head-tribble have somehow failed to elicit the grateful and instantaneous co-operation they demand.
