Way to Go, President Obama!

Because what America needs more than anything else right now is an expansion of its open-ended (and 70-year-old) “security” guarantee to every Tom, Dick and Harry on the Pacific Rim except, and versus, China:

President Barack Obama confirmed Wednesday that America’s mutual security treaty with Japan applies to the islands at the center of a territorial dispute between China and Japan.

“The policy of the United States is clear,” he said in a written response to questions published in Japan’s Yomiuri newspaper before his arrival in Tokyo at the start of a four-country Asia tour.

“The Senkaku islands are administered by Japan” and therefore fall under the U.S.-Japan treaty, he wrote.

How long before the US openly agrees to restore and “guarantee” the old “Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere” that thousands of US soldiers, sailors and Marines died to shatter?
