Tillerson, Trump's Secretary of State nominee is balanced on the edge of Rubio's toilet seat.

Rubio's Revenge?

Quote:Rubio sits on the Foreign Relations Committee, 
which must sign off on Tillerson before his nomination can go to the Senate floor for a final vote. 

The panel has 11 Republicans and 10 Democrats, 
so if all the Democrats oppose Tillerson—which they very well might—
the defection of just one Republican will be enough to stall, 
and probably sink, 
his chances of confirmation.

But it was Tillerson’s refusal 
to condemn Putin and President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines for war crimes 
and human rights abuses that particularly irked Rubio.


Tillerson already has the Chinese ranting about going to war

Quote:Only 'large-scale war' would allow US to block Beijing from S. China Sea islands, state media warns
Chinese state media has warned that the US would have to launch a "large-scale war" 
to prevent Beijing from accessing islands 
it has built in the South China Sea. 

It comes after secretary of state nominee Rex Tillerson said such access should be restricted. Hi

"Unless Washington plans to wage a large-scale war in the South China Sea, 
any other approaches to prevent Chinese access to the islands will be foolish," 
the state-sanctioned Global Times newspaper wrote on its English-language website.

It went on to stress that the US "has no absolute power to dominate the South China Sea," 
warning that Tillerson 
"had better bone up on nuclear power strategies Rofl
if he wants to force a big nuclear power to withdraw from its own territories."

The article also said that China has so far "shown restraint" 
when Trump's cabinet picks have expressed "radical views," 
as the president-elect has not yet been sworn in. 
However, it stressed that the US "should not be misled into thinking that Beijing will be fearful of their threats."

"If Trump's diplomatic team shapes future Sino-US ties as it is doing now, 
the two sides had better prepare for a military clash," 
the article reads, 
adding that Tillerson's statements are "far from professional."

The former ExxonMobil CEO’s comments were made during his Senate confirmation hearing on Wednesday,
in which he said that China's activities in the disputed South China Sea were "extremely worrisome."

"Building islands and then putting military assets on those islands is akin to Russia's taking of Crimea. 
It's taking of territory that others lay claim to," 
Tillerson said, referring to the reunification of Crimea and Russia, 
which took place following a referendum in 2014.

"We're going to have to send China a clear signal that first, 

the island-building stops, 
and second, your access to those islands Naughty   also not going to be allowed."  



We may either end up at war with China,
or
at
war
with China and Russia.

Tillerson's talk is unexpectedly tough.

Global shit hits the fan soon, you have about a year, maybe more or less, to get your priorities in place..
