Given that the root causes can not be addressed (we aren't time travelers), and that allowing the situation to play out as you propose will necessarily result in the deaths of millions, it would be unacceptably inhumane to do so.

We have to deal with the situation at hand. Bemoaning its causes is unproductive. We have the capability to change the outcome of the current situation so as to prevent a century of secular infighting and the countless deaths that will result.

I will let you equip my organization with Surfaces for only $20. Our brand has developed a strong customer following and the products we use have a great influence on the purchasing decisions of our clients.

Granted, my organization may look like a household, but that's just a clever marketing tactic.

We will need three tablets at first to equip our executive staff (myself and my girlfriend) and our lead associate (her daughter), though our affiliates (extended family) may require them in the future.

Because we have close allies in the area. Nations with whom we have defence treaties, and China is trying to claim their territory.

Here's a map of what the UN says the borders are, and what China says they are

The Philippines and Taiwan are under our protection, and China is trying to steal their territorial waters. We do business with everyone else.

Long story short, we have many interests in the region and can't allow China's reckless sea-grab to make a mess of it all.

This puts NATO and China directly at odds. I'm surprised that everyone seems to be missing how important that is in favor of pseudo-political drivel.

Hopefully, it will encourage China to curtail their current activities. I know I'm sick of all the Chinese IP's bouncing packets off my company's firewalls.

is force residential customers to pay for business service. Complain about the cap, and they'll try to sell you on it.

And as people "in the know", I think we can all call bullshit on them when they say streaming video uses too much bandwidth. Netflix streams H.264, TV streams are uncompressed MPEG-2. If you watch Netflix, you're using less bandwidth than if you were watching Fox.
