"Someone put angry pills into the New York Times’ editors’ cornflakes on Sunday morning. Or perhaps they were neo-cornflakes. In either case, the Times’ editorial on 'China’s Naval Ambitions' sounded unhappily neocon-like. Though the Times stipulates that 'the Pentagon has a long history of hyping the Chinese threat to justify expensive weapons purchases,' it goes on to warn ominously of precisely that Chinese 'threat.'"
