First, I know this about Putin: Putin was a very accomplished and decorated member, and eventually the leader of a group of men and women whose task and purpose in life it was to utterly hate and destroy America. The training and mindstate of these men and women that facilitated this hatred for America is strong to the point that it could not be overcome by a simple shift in global focus.
Putin hates America with every fiber of his being, and though he is a highly skilled diplomat and statesman, he is still a spy. A spy of the highest caliber, who will always attempt to convince others that he is what he actually is not.
What is China waiting for? What they have always been waiting for. A very opportune moment to move to strike. China would not choose to engage in a long, protracted war, but would rather do its business in a very overwhelming and deliberate way.
I believe that both leaderships of Russia and China know that to take on the might of America would be difficult, but I also can see how they would notice that we are waning socially and economically, which I believe is a being facilitated intentionally as a prepatory phase of battle.
We will effectively have lost our motivation and spirit to a great degree.'
If I am right, and China and Russia do wish us harm and attempt to cause it, who will win? Somewhat of a rhetorical question, but I don't believe that blind patriotism without the benefit of reason can be a logical defense at this point.
Powers shift. Influence shifts. All in due time. America will not last forever, just like all other great societies have fallen before us. The brightest flame burns quickest, and we should remember the lessons others have learned.
The question is, when inevitabilty rears its ugly head, will we stand and fight together for America, or will we fall divided? We still have a choice.
