Admiral Philip Davidson, who’s been nominated to lead U.S. forces in the Pacific, warned Congress this week that – short of war – the Chinese are now capable of controlling the strategic South China Sea. He added that there is "no guarantee" the United States would win such a war if it occurred.

This ominous reality has been developing for decades, accelerated by the eight-year wrecking operation conducted by Barack Obama against the U.S. military, which coincided with and encouraged massive build-ups of Russia’s, as well as China’s, armed forces. And increasingly the stage is set for conflict in the Pacific, and beyond.

This sure would be a good time to have a brilliant West Point graduate as America’s Secretary of State. Fortunately, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D.,  agrees and became the first Democrat to announce her support for Mike Pompeo’s nomination. Who’s next?
