In this thread I have seen it rationalized that neither China or Russia have anything to gain by going to war with the US and I agree. I would like to
point out the US does have a strategic reason to go to war with China.
There is only a finite amount of oil on this planet and we have past peak production, everyone knows what that means right? So while Iran and China
have been such good friends, China’s supply, industrial and economical expansion is assured. Only 25% of Libya’s surface has been explored for oil
reserves and it’s suspected more lies undiscovered. They have a manageable military and small population. When Libya became unstable, it was
inevitable that the US would get involved.
I’m just saying the oil clock is ticking and I don’t see any sort of dramatic energy reform, happening within the US. Not even talk of it. Will we
just run our SUVs until they are on “E” and walk away? Will the corporate backers of our government allow that to happen, while there is still
huge profits to be made from an ever decreasing resource? At the same time those that control the oil, also deny it to their competitors.
Sorry for repeating myself over this issue, but if it isn’t dependant upon the morality of the people, if a conflict for world domination is
eminent, it makes more sense for the US to do it “sooner” rather than “later”.
Once you remove the moral implications and the morality of the people wasn’t an obstacle for invading Iraq. The choices are pretty clear.
A) Either eventually the US and the world, peacefully accepts China as the next dominant power.
B) We use what military advantage, if any that we have now, while we still have a chance of success.
China will eventually surpass us in economy, technology and military, while at the same time any dominance the US has will continue to decline along
with it’s economy. So which will we choose?
