Just wondered what our distinguished members and friends have in the way of thoughts on this subject. Given that..... The trade war with China seems to be getting worse rather than better That Chinese espionage has increased notably The bad relations with India, Taiwan, South Korea, Indonesia and Malaysia and Australia.. The repeated flexing of economic bullying by china to its trading partners The ageing of the US Navy and the rapid build-up of Chinese naval strength The annexation or attempted annexation of the South China Sea Given all these realities, I believe a hot war with China will come sooner rather than later. But I believe the biggest question of all is....Which way will The Russian government lean, or will they stay neutral ? And....in a war with China, will we see the deployment and usage of Nuke, either tactically or strategically? The Doomsday clock is the closest its ever been to midnight.... What do you think about this most important issue and events and how do you see them developing?
