Tell Instapundit To Shut Up

The more I read Instapundit, the less impressed I am. Take this post. He and James Dunnigan, the master of the obvious, opine that China will try some kind of sneak attack against Taiwan, even though Taiwan and the US track every concentration of Chinese forces on the Southeast Coast about a closely as you can.

And giving nukes so that China will launch an attack on Pakistan and NK is just dumb but of course, the good Professor will claim it is a satirical post. Yeah, sure. Taiwan with nukes will give China a reason to negotiate, but only so long as the nukes show up unobtrusively. If Taiwan blows off a nuke, China can attack to "prevent" Taiwan's rouge slittists from doing anything else horrendous.
