    Re: War on the horizon?

    Ghosthammer sent this to me a while back. I thought I'd share it here. Makes me feel a little better Seeing us as #1 and Brittan/France not far behind.

    Also I noticed Iran, who is the 3rd biggest supporter of Syria is pretty far down the list.

    Re: War on the horizon?

    The only conflict here is that China and Russia agree that whatever attack the UN makes on the middle east will cause the middle east to automatically cut off any trade with the other nations, forget about the attacks they will make for a second. Russia and China rely on those resources which is why they do not wish to jeopardize the trade route. That is mainly why they walked out, a journalist doesn't need to tell me that.

    Now, if this so happens, we cannot say for sure that China and Russia will attack us, remember we are still allies so there is different possibilities. However, as soon as the middle east break open against Israel, the UN is now obligated to war, something Russia and China will most likely not support us in.

    In the possibility that Russia and China stay away, our only threat would be those middle east countries, which in all honesty will not be too bad. The remaining UN nations can easily contain this threat and force an end sooner than believed. What we do not know, however, is how Russia and China will act at the end, they will be unharmed and fresh, ready to take advantage.

    In the possibility that Russia and China retaliate against the UN. We don't necessarily have to say we're fucked. I believe their heads are level enough to keep a nuclear war out of reach. Just as we don't want to loose everything, they don't want to either, just as we say they're crazy, they are most likely thinking the same about us. This might just be and intense stair down and maybe a few battles, apart from the middle east war, that would most likely end in a treaty.

    Remember how much China and Russia still need us, we are their highest consumers.

    I am nervous about this though, a lot of shit can happen. A lot of shit can happen quick.

    We should just sick Germany onto Russia :p

    But humor aside, nothings going to happen. The Security Council has too much to lose in a world war over an insignificant country like Syria.

    Re: War on the horizon?

    This is more serious than North Korea putting on its little show earlier this year. I don't understand Russia. Or China. They're on the crazy train too.

    The reason they are behaving this way is threefold:

    1). They fear the US having control of oil-producing countries, like they did with Iraq. They're afraid that we'll choose to make Syria a client state this time, and not give them back their government entirely. They won't just take us by our word on it.

    2). The Cold War isn't exactly over, just the arms race. Russian and Chinese distrust isn't a thing of the past. They see us striking Syria in the Middle-East as a way of moving our influence closer and closer to their doorstep. Syria represents serious and extreme economic crisis for them, and a way out of ours. They don't like that.

    3). The fear of growing empires is still quite possible in the world. Just because western civilization has halted their need for empire, doesn't mean they think that we won't do it. Frankly, I've got my doubts about that as well.

    Don't bet on that. Proxy wars are nothing new. There's no way we'll see a war on the western homefront. Gone are those days. But having a war between these countries on Syrian soil is entirely possible and probable.


    If we declare another war, I'm enlisting that day.
