Marc Faber says Asian countries to remain relatively peaceful

Basically I always own some shares, most of my share holdings are in Asia. 

I would like to point out something, the Dow Jones is flat for this year. In Asia, the Indian market is up 22 percent year to date. The Thai market is up 20 percent in dollar terms, Jakarta is up 24 percent. Philippines up 18 percent, Karachi up 17 percent and so forth. 

I worry about the geopolitical tensions but in general I think all the Asian countries are today so China-centric that there wont be a military conflict, there will be rattling and disputes and so forth. But the US doesn't really have the power to really wage a war in Asia, that we have to be very clear.
