Credit Where Credit is Due

I am pleasantly surprised that Obama made the right choice in standing up to Chinese provocations. Chinese provocations of new U.S. Presidents have become almost a ritual and I worried that Obama’s seemingly reflexive response of apologizing to aggressors would lead him to back off and apologize when the Chinese made their move. 

He didn’t, at least so far, so he deserves credit from a critic like me for making the right choice.
