I have said this before in an older thread, I think the first move will be made by China. Their leaders have been quoted as saying that the only way
they will survive into the future is to openly seize new territories. In my opinion, strategically it would make sense for the chinese to invade
australia first. They have the most untapped resources, they are comparitvley close to China and by the time Australias alies could respond they
would already be well entrenched. What will we do then, launch nukes at our friend to defeat our enemy?
Nice and interesting thread OP
Now in reply to the above quote, and I was waiting for someone to mention Australias involvement in all of this, it was bound to happen and a good
entry point for me aswell.
Ive mentioned this particular topic in threads in the past and strongly stand by my thoughts and ideas. Forst off, YES, there will be a US/CHINA war
within the next 3 years or so. The middle east war is part of the gameplan and an excercise in setting up your set pices before "The Big One" takes
Control the mideast oil and try to starve your adversary of supplies. China is waiting until atleast a year after the Olympics, for they want that
tourist dollar that comes with the Games. Then I see then openly declaring Taiwan their own and sending in troops to control the island protected by a
huge naval blockade to stop anybody coming in or out.
The Western world will protest, place santions on China and trade embargoes. This is where Australia comes in. Australia has HUGE trade with China
with their natural resources......as mentioned by SoLaR513, untapped is wrong for the mining industry is ever growing here in Australia. They know
where and what is, its just a matter of digging it up when it suits us.
Now, back on topic, Australia will sanction China, China will get very upset for they need our goods to keep their economy going. Including Uranium
for power generation. They will get to a desperate point where they will at first threaten and then fulfill their promise of "trying" to invade
Australia. This is why the amount of new aircraft carriers being built by China is a worry for this would further enhance their base away from home
and for longer durations.
Invading Australia would not be as easy as you think. We are a huge and hostile landmass, not talking about the people but the environment. The US is
still having problems securing supply routes into Baghdad, imagine trying to do this from Northern Australia down to the population centres in the
South East of the Country?
Japan was a military force in WW2 and they couldn't even land upon Australia successfully because their supply routes were so thinly stretched that
the small number of Australian soldiers in Papua New Gunea defeated a huge number of Japanes Soldiers for those at the rear of the supply routes didnt
know what was occuring at the front and were unknowingly walking into ambush after ambush by the Aussies.
I think the 2 unknowns here would be where will India and Russia side with this? India has yet to show which way they lean, thou I assume they would
lean towards the west and that would help greatly. Russia, may be sabre rattling and jump on board to share in the spoils.
In the end, it will be the final Great War, and world government will evolve from this battle.
Before I conclude, has anybody else realised the similarities of the West building up China's economy the same way the west built up Germanys
economy prior to WW2?
