you guys dont get that china needs the three gorges dam.. stops flooding that killed 2+million in the 1930s and destroyed 100,000homes in 1996 or 7

helps create wealth in the poorer western areas people it creates more trade.can now navigate 10,000 ton boats

is going to be used to move water to the north in the South-to-North water project

the benifits of the project outweigh the cost

I wasnt saying it either, just spewing forth statements of the past, The Viktor writes history. The UN is quickly becoming the Leage of Nations infact its about 75% there as it stands. China and US uses it as a cat with a mouse.

yeah famine, plague, pestilience and war are coming we just dont know when, thus my 4 horsemen comment and dont forget to blame it on your enemy!

Chinawhite: those are the very reason it makes itself a large target if that dam ever fail be it from earthquake, attack or bad engineering (the titanic) there will be 10X the amount of damage and deaths all that water being released at once plus its already destroyed countless national treasures in the name of progress.

progess always = destruction

I just read this book by tom clancy called "carriers".. a good read i thought.. Gives a good cross section of US carriers vis-a-vis tech,tactics etc..

But I've just come to this conclusion..

Man does Tom Clancy HATE India!!

He always spins his tales keeping India as the aggressors!!
Tis very funny..

Ive never read that book by Clancy. The one I read was about the submarines.
Wondering what his reasons are for not liking India??
My opinion of India is that she is being groomed and equipped to take on
China down the road if China renigs on the loans made to her. Loans made by international banks. India will be part of the team that functions as a "repo man".

I might have to go to Barnes and Noble and get that book.

well the name of the book is carriers and its not fiction.. not for the most part at least..
Its mostly documentary-style with pictures and schematics of the Hawkeye, tomcat,superhornet etc..

THe fiction part comes in the end..

There's this other tom clancy book (forgot the name) but it has Japan trying to de-stabilise the NYSE and simultaneously invading Saipan..
Here again India is made to be that "evil" ally of Japan and is trying to draw the american fleet away from the pacific by blockading SRi Lanka who are all "helpless"..

Yup!! Your right..the book is called Debt of Honor about the Saipan invasion and the stock exchange. I have read that one but not the book o Carriers. the fictional senerio is at the end of this book Carriers. If I recall what I have read in the back of some of Clancy's books he and his friends are into alot of those electronic games and senerios. I think he uses these games to work up plots in his books.
I will be getting that book Carriers soon at Barnes and Noble. Thanks Daedalus.

He does the same thing in Executive Orders. It kinda continues the Japan/Iran/India storyline from Debt of Honor, only without Japan involved.

yeah i wish this resource crisis would bring people together rather than do a mad max to them, as a people humans are at the point that we need to start thinking for bettering humanity rather than just the rich of all nations. A resource war would drain more resources than replace the lost resource if we are to survive as a people of Terra then we must look to the stars to find the resources that we need becuase resources wars will only bring the destruction of our people Terrians, lets rise above neucon 20th century ideals.

The resources we find up there will only help replace the resources down here.

here is to peace and space exploration aka Star Trek future or maybe Gene Rodenberry was a prophet, who knows?

THe human of Terra didnt come together till after a nuke hot war and the leftovers had fought themself till nearly bothsides were wipped out. I hope it doesnt come to this but maybe thats what it would take for a stupid and foolish species like ourselves.

totally agree Char2c35t,

i think the worlds wealth has to be much more evenly distributed (and I dont mean that in a commie kind of way, lol), there has to be higher education levels around the world (so people aren't so ignorant as to want to kill based on religion), and I reckon giving Palestine a homeland would also go a long way to reducing tension in the middle east too...

just my take on things

Clancy continues the Resource War arc with "The Bear and The Dragon" which sees China invade Russia in an attempt to take Siberia and all the riches there.
