The Taliban is an occupational war, like Korea. Those are notoriously hard to win. A war with China would be like WW2. We go in, destroy them, they
surrender. Naval blockades that starve them. Literally even, as they import a lot of food, especially corn from the US. Their economy would starve as
well as NO exporting would be allowed. Their factories would all be destroyed by missile strikes. The comparison you want to make is ludicrous.
Where does the Taliban get there food? The desert?
You are attempting to tell me that if the US stopped sending corn to China (probably because US corn is much more valuable at this time than US money)
that you think this ancient, vast population of ingenuity is going to starve... and you want to call my claim ludicrous? Newsflash... Stuff grows in
China. Lot's of stuff. Also, like it or not, the majority of the world's population would probably take China's side if the US attacked them over
some small Island dispute with Japan.
So you are claiming that we'd go in and destroy the people of China... not to mention their allies that would be coming to their aide... but without
So why couldn't we just "go in" as you say and "destroy" the Taliban... Oh yeah... WE TRIED. Lest we forget.
We would have to resort to *numerous* nukes or bio warfare on a massive scale and would be so guilty of warcrimes, no one with any sense would take
our side. Not to mention the fact that China has nuclear retaliation of it's own so while WE were nuking them, they'd turn around and start nuking
us... and they'd probably get a lot further with that faster due to mere landmass differences. This theory of yours is nothing but egotism, I'm
sorry to say... and you should really consider what kind of fear you are trying to monger here in a time when the world needs peace... and what I mean
by that is that the west needs to sit down and shut up for a little while, not be making ridiculous threats like destroying China.
Western economies *will* fall to other economies... and rightfully so.
If global nuclear war broke out... a few Asian people hiding in mountains would probably be the ONLY ones to survive. The Americas could be decimated
much more quickly than Asia.... and furthermore, I seriously doubt key players in South America would let us get very far into global nuclear war,
knowing that it would directly affect them to have the continent destroyed and they are already making this known in various ways. I know South
America could not beat us, but there is no doubt they would lend a big hand in taking us down a notch. hat's not counting other nations in other
continents who would know good and damn well that once we start chunking nukes at China and they start retaliating, the US will straight away start
jumping to other regions... occupying them as bases and using THEIR resources, which will happen faster on the N. American continent so it would be in
everyone's best interest to go ahead and eliminate US, side with China, save and repair Asia, cut off and quarantine N. America and the European
countries that might try to get involved (some of which are nearly sea locked to begin with) before we destroy the entire planet. That's just
geo-ecomomic strategic common sense for preservation in the aftermath. THINK for God's sake. The world is not going to let us DESTROY China.
All this is, this idea that to totally defeat China would be a cake walk, is nothing more than pepped up military talk. We would NEVER be able to just
In this day of information... everyone would see what is going on and they would get involved. This would NOT solely be a military fight. Everyone
knows that the first world wars were just a work up to a huge third world war if someone starts throwing nukes after the global community has banned
their use in active war. Everyone knows that WW3 would make the other two wars look like mere conflicts. Every possible threat would be brought to the
table once the global power and diplomacy system crumbled and the SIMPLE FACT... is that The North American continent's population could be reduced
to a skeleton crew before we could make a dent on the population of Asia... and any allies we think we have in Asia, you could kiss all that
diplomatic jargon goodbye if we attack China. It's nothing but posturing in front of the camera at this point anyway. Get real. Let communication
completely breakdown and have the entire world's population trying to figure out what's going on... and the longest finger of the people will be
pointed at US. The majority of the world already knows this in their hearts, it's just that the propaganda volume is turned up so loud, it can only
We will NOT win if we jump on China.
