I would like some opinions on what some of you guys think would happen to South Africa if WW3 goes down...

I mean we are a small/weak country now, not what we used to be, and we seem to be siding with Iran in this nuclear standoff!!

What u think ?

I don't see what the problem is. We (SA) are a strong nation - just look at the unity of the people after winning the RWC! Bush and his cronies can take a flying leap. We are at least one of the nations who are not prepared to bow and scrape to Mr Bush et al and I hope that it will stay that way, thank you very much!

A strong nation? I get a big laugh when I read about these tiny, insignificant countries attempting to sound "strong" towards the USA.
Like a tiny ant walking up and saying, im strong and IF we even notice you down there, since your a tiny ant, your voice is so high pitched we cant hear you.
So we turn on the amplifiers for you, just in case you're saying something important and we hear "im strong and were selling stuff to iran"
What did you say again? "im strong" and we flick you away with a finger..

Worry about youre own criminal country before you worry about my country.
Why dont you do something about the Rape and Murders of the white farmers and their families first, then preach about my country..

So you are essencially saying, right now, that your country is, indeed, supporting terrorist agendas by selling uranium to Iran, N. Korea and Syria? How do you feel about your "strong nation" doing this? I think to find your answer, you must look inward, not outward. Do YOU support your country selling nuclear material to countries who speak with a clenched fist? Who might just use it for less-than-benevolent applications?

I don't know what to tell you. SA has a good army and good equipment, but, I think they would try to compromise before any conflict ensued.

SA would cease to exist if we (US) didnt want it around. Is that good enough for ya? I mean i dont hope that happens as i have no ill will towards SA or the people thereof. Im just stating the facts. Hopefully it will never come to that.

If you people read what i said in the TOPIC, i said that we are a WEAK nation, the other dude implied that we are a strong nation, why do you think I asked what would happen to S.A if world war 3 started...

And yes, I have done some research and S.A has some strong ties with Iran, the great United States even approached us to try and persuade Iran to cease their uranium enrichment, we supplied them with uranium all through the 80's and still even after the US told us to stop.

Personally I hate this country with a passion, and would much rather move to the U.S and sign up with the military in order to gain U.S citizenship, but my mind is changing every day with the way your "late great USA" is messing up your country, you are so far gone in your debt you have to create a North American Union to save your own asses.

Yes you could wipe us off the map in a day or two probably, but your losing your place in the world one day at a time, china will be the supoer power of the world in 10 - 20 years...

The only problem with that is they wouldnt be able to find South Africa on the map due to ignorance.......sorry to the USA, but if you guys are gonna treat other countries like this, than you deserve it back. Maybe read the post a little more carefully before you start abusing the OP

Along with the out of control spreading of HIV/AIDS infections.

Far more important than worrying about supplying uranium to Iran, IMO.

Ok so why are you guys attacking SA? Oh because the USA is big and strong, like the ogre we are. Anyway what will happen to SA if WWIII comes about? I hope nothing bad, I have some friends who live there. I would hope that your nation would take a neutral course of action and not get involved. Why can't nations let other nations retain there national soverinty (sp) ? Sorry to rant a bit, somethings just kinda "irk" me.

Not so sure South africa is an easy target to just hit and run....I am a South african, We might not be as big and dump, but we have the geographical edge. If we were so tiny, why are on the securty council? Its one saying it will take a day or two, it's another when you got to figure out how!

I think your question Sethdarke, does not have a simple answer and depends on the extent of WW3.

Lets look at WW3 being conducted in Western Europe and the Middle East first off. And lets further assume it is a conventional war, then the major impact to South Africa would be the general ripple in the world economy and the disruption to the supply of goods around the world. South Africa would come up huge diplomatic pressure from all sides in the conflict and lets assume that a world war is unlikely not to involve the US and then by extention NATO.

So trade is very likely to dry up and lets faces it, if South Africa is seen by the US and its allies to be supplying weapons and minerals to help their enemies, the diplomatic pressure would be ratcheted up and then the US and its allies would make an example of a ship/plane delivering weapons.

South Africa would tow the line from the US and its Allies, or it would open itself to military attack. Yes the SDF is a well equiped and training army, but against an alliance that can protect power anywhere in the world, South Africa does not really stand a chance, and no leader wants to do down in history as the leader that caused their country to be destroyed.

There are still strong ties to the United Kingdon and the Commonwealth which would be used to put pressure on South Africa.


If we broaden the scope to include Africa as part of the battle ground, South Africa is one of the most powerful, well equiped and training militaries in Africa. I still would not see South Africa opposing the US and its allies unless it was very sure of support, and I do not think that Russia or China would be prepared to offer the level of support and commitment to South Africa for it to oppose the US and its allies.

South Africa would either be neutal or part of the US alliance.

You guys are only where you are and only have what you have because of England..
In my opinion it was once a great country, at least until the Mandela era, thats when they began their downhill descent.
Now S. Africa is considered to be a Nation to NOT go to, especially if youre white and want to stay free of HIV.
Seriously, thats what S.A. is now known for! HIV and white farmers being raped and slaughtered.
Now to add to that, they seem to want to be known for supplying a Nation known for Terrorism with uranium?

I would think that if we invade Iran because of their Nuclear issues then we would also attack any aircraft and board any ship that was supplying them.

Also, I can find that dump on a map as well as my 13 year old son.
All you have to look for is the Nation at the bottom of the Continent thats considered the *** -hole of the world.

THAT was the most intellegent response in this whole thread!

@ The Posters-
The issue is not whether the US can kick SA's arse, but, whether or not SA will or will not take up "space" in any WWIII-like conflict. You can bash America all you want, it makes no difference in the thread except to waste time reading it.

Remember that historically, South African biochemists were considered the world experts in biological weapons. (Wouter Basson et al)

Although this has been disbanded (or so they claim) with the new government in place, the latent expertise in biological weapons far exceeds that of any other country.

I would not dismiss their ability to defend themselves so quickly...

Kr0nos, while I agree with most of your statements I take issue with what I quoted. Spewing this stuff does nothing but emphasize the arrogance of most Americans. Yes, by definition, we might be better off than people in other countries; but you have to be able to get along with all the kids in the playground to succeed in life.

Realistically, one day, SA might be considered one of those "terrorist states". You know, once our uranium supplies run low. I hate thinking that way; but I really wonder about our elected officials sometimes. And, I am what was once considered a Republican. Nowadays I don't know about that either.

Well if anyone gave me half a chance i'd much rather live in the states as well, u think me as a white person wants to live in south africa ?

But your countries immigration laws make it easier for an illegal immigrant to succeed in america, than a 4 year IT specialist who can't go to your country because i dont have a degree or some crap like that, it'd be easier for me to pack my bags and just live in america illegally...

let one person on here give me a greencard then i'd even serve in the US military to earn it...

thats how desperate i am in getting out of this #hole, u can bash this country i live in all you like, cause it's true, it's run by incapable illiterate racist black empowerment, kill the white blacks!!!

help me!!

My chances for survival in the military ( serving in iraq ) is much better than that of a white person living in south africa...

Hey seth, give me an idea of what a typical day for a white person is like in that place..

The last thing I remember seeing about S. Africa was a video on liveleak of a white girl that was decapitated in the streets by blacks with machetes.

Every Nation that the blacks are given control of goes to hell, they do the same thing to American cities.
Oh wait, is that racist or is it reality?
Well there are even black leaders here in this country that say the same thing, of course the other blacks like the "Reverend" call them Uncle Toms..

If someone can name ONE successful Nation, in which Africans have always had and now have total control of, then I will gladly eat my words.
