Nope. PACOM's ADM Fallon has practically been living over in PRC this year and they've been invited to monitor just about every U.S. Pacific military exercise. They're being encouraged to find peaceful ways to resolve the situation because there will be major bloodshed in the straits if they try the martial approach.

To say nothing of the trade & financial bloodshed.

And the market is in free fall. Dow down almost 500 points in the last week, over 800 points from it's high. It's with morbid curiosity that I watch, like a car accident on the side of the freeway.

Just be glad you aren't in Japan. Nikkei dropped from 17,563 in April 2006 almost 3,000 points to 14,633. Good time to be "internationally diversified" if you are a Japanese investor.

Actually, it is a great time to be a Japanese investor. I am on a (bit of a) Japanese equity buying spree now. So far we're only back to last December's prices, when I was already getting a nosebleed, so (hopefully) we still have a ways to go.

But it is always a good time to be internationally diversified, wherever you are.
