Are we sleepwalking into WWIII?

How long before China tries to take Taiwan? Do you think the US would go to war over it?

Russia, China, North Korea and Iran will form the new axis if and when that happens.

No, we're not going to go to war over it, treaty notwithstanding. It's impossible.

"This war would harm black and brown bodies of our armed forces. How dare you?!"

Etc.

Sanctions if it happens. Major sanctions, sure. All over the world. But that's about it.

China isn't going to do it, however.

If China isn’t going to do it, why threaten Taiwan so aggressively?

Wow, they even did the "World War III" scaremongering thing in the original thread at R3.

OP, you guys all work off the same crib sheet, doncha?

Either situation could be the start of a global war, but I think Taiwan is more dangerous because China is truly powerful while Russia is a paper bear.

[quote] Russia, China,

They're trying to be the low-rent version of Germany and Japan, I suppose. But everything about them is lesser than and just not as good.

Word War 3? Umm China already won that one due to COVID. While the whole world has fallen apart, Chinas fortunes continue to grow thanks to the pandemic.

R1 = Such an incisive political analyst. Worthy of the DL's usual caliber of experts.

China is testing Biden. With politics the way it is, they know that republicans will be in their side.

You get rid of the czar and the emperor, but the power structure remains. Like the Anatole France line, "the dragon is dead, now I am the monster."

Sending jets to test response time and annoy your enemy isn't anything new. Russia has been invading UK And Norwegian airspace to test NATO for over a decade. Its only if someone shoots one down rather than just escorting it out it gets hot.

Hold me, Sum Ting: I'm scared.

If Old Asian women are getting punched in the face now - just wait until we go to war with China.

Putin has been massing troops and weapons on the border of Ukraine for weeks now and the press is barely mentioning it. Ukraine in response has been begging even more urgently than before to join NATO. Media reaction has been crickets.

by Anonymousreply 16Last Thursday at 1:52 AM

R16 You beat me to that post.

That is a way more worrying situation that the threat to Taiwan from China, which isn't far behind. The two combined, which is a possibility will be the end of us all.

by Anonymousreply 17Last Thursday at 2:29 AM

Fuck China. They aren't going to do shit...they just posturing for attention.

OP must be one of the Chinese trolls who was assigned Datalounge until his social credit score improves.

Good - so we can intern the Chinese like we did to the Japanese. Small mercy there will be fewer Asian bottom feeders on Grindr. Bring it on, Chang.
