Where's Seward when you need him? In my experience, Greenpeace has not had much effect on the Chinese Government. The news release above is just distant early warning of Chinese intentions.

Here's the deal: Russia's in a demographic death spiral. Once the Chinese get into these forests, they won't be leaving. China's putting itself on track to own Siberia when the current inhabitants die out.

We ought to be making bids on the Kamchatka Peninsula now. Certainly, if Japan ever makes a successful offer on Sakhalin, we ought to pile on in.

Westward ho!
