Obama Likes Ph^o!

      President Obama has paid a visit to Vietnam, to Hanoi, the capitol, and to Ho Chi Minh City, the southern commercial center(former Saigon).  He made a formal visit with the president and also with dissidents who were allowed to visit with the prez.
     Needless to say, this is a geopolitical move that sends a message to the dragon in the north, Vietnam's traditional enemy: China.  Given China's recent activities in the South China Sea(island building, naval base building, and airport building, along with territorial claims over the entire sea and the covering airspace) it is telling that a sitting POTUS would make a house call in the backyard of Mr. Xi's house.
     Well, it's about time.  Here we've had the China military hacking into US computer networks, failing to rein in North Korea's cookoo's nest, and aggressive violations of the WTO agreement.
