That's a pretty fun read. It sounds like John Titor plus/minus a few years. Could be made more interesting if it wasn't so focused on Obama sitting there doing nothing.. I'm pretty sure he would do some crazy stuff in that kind of situation.

You know what is really scary about this? We trained for a few events like this in 2007, these events were deemed highly likely, with one exception China moblized its forces to take one remaning US and allied forces, and Russia was completed destroy by Isreal Nukes.

OK, how about this;
The reason for the silence from Hamas and Hezbollah since the last war is because they are planning, and putting into action, a nuclear detonation inside Israel.
This is a plan they've had for a long time and finally the time has come. After Israel's last attempt to more or less destroy the Palistinian resistance, there is no lack of anger and urging for retalliation.
To gain access to all the bits and pieces to gather a nuclear device, the terrorists have gone through great lengths.
Iran has contributed with most material, but also China, who can see benefits in this, have contributed. Their contribution, on the other hand, is not confirmed to be sanctioned by their state leaders, but such a great vast country holds many hiding places, and the growing corruption that has come hand in hand with their economical uprising makes it more or less easy to buy and ship such materials and technologies.
Also from the Caucasian republics and enclaves, Muslim fanatics smuggle out some needed assets for the purpose they see as "the Final Blow" and the starting of the "Last Global Intifada" or "Ultimate Jihad".
The Chinese do however have a hidden sinister agenda in this.
They see USA crumbling under the preassure of economical collapse. All they need is a little push, then they will be over the edge.
Tensions over Taiwan has risen lately and the Chinese military have now finally constructed a navy and marine force, strong enough to take the island and keep it, once and for all. Their growing economy needs this expansion.
Japan, South Korea and the US are watching the events develop with dread. All US pacific installations are at high alert as Chinese populations in the South-east Asian countries, provoced by secret Chinese agents start demonstrating and assulting US military installations all over the area.
In these turbulent times, the work to complete the NAU has accelerated and is more or less the cutof a velvet ribbon away. The South Americans are outraged about this. Some of their socialist governments have noticed and uncovered several attemps of infiltration by "foregin agents", and the links to what the US did back in the 70's and 80's are apparent.
The formation of the NAU is just the final drop for them and they impose a oil-export blockade upon the US. This leads to armed tension and nation wide demonstrations and manifestations.
In Europe, everthing is all but calm. Putin has become president once more, and this time, it's for life. During his initial period in office, he makes sure that the world knows that play time is over. All territories that have been screwing with him the last years gets to know what is their place. But above all, it is suddenly realized that Russia and Belarus have a long gone plan of merging the two countries.
This is met with panic from the EU, who can see the rise of their old enemy of the East. The Baltic countries shivers in their boots, they know that their day can come at any given moment...
But this is not the only radical change in territories about to happen.
As the leader of North Korea dies, after some time of unhealth, his final will is exposed:
To remain "the Last Leader of North Korea" in history, and to help his country from famine and starvation, worsened by the climate change, he turns over his nation to China... It is later revealed that this plan had been worked upon, in greatest secrecy for the last 10 years (about the time Kim realized he was fatally ill).
So, the bomb goes off in Tel-aviv, Israel, which is not late to realize the ties to Iran, retalliates swift and hard, and the US are more or less forces to dispatch their forces into Iran. While occupied in the true "Mother of all Battles", China strikes at Taiwan with combined Chinese and (fromer) North Korean forces. Major unrest throughout South-east asia erupts. Russia and Belarus merges, making the EU freak out totally and both sides rush forces to their borders. Russia seems hell-bent on provocing an attack to show their polital "martyrdom".
Extremist groups in Pakistan, that have been thriving more than ever due to the increase in US military activity in their lands, see the bomb in Israel as a divine call to arms and launch a major offensive. State coup after another makes India very anxious and they launch pre-empive attacks into sensetive areas in the Pakistani-Inidan border- war breaks out and Pakistan falls into helpless turmoil.
There's your war!
