The tensions are currently really high in Asia, although a lot of it is simply media hype.
I am currently living in the Baltics, which used to be part of the Soviets. Although originally I am from Scandinavia.
I just got quite a good offer from a Swedish company, although I already have my university and job here. Although due to the pressures that are in
Asia, I am wondering should I consider moving away, just in case, or not? It would change plans, although overally I could also get transfered to
their university and continue my studies and life there. Not too much would change.
The risk of staying here is that IF war broke off in Asia, the NATO will be concentrated in helping US out there. Whether or not Russia would take
part, there would be an opportunity for them to expand, to get back some of their "old" areas (although these are completely different cultures from
them) and I wonder, whether they might try something in Europe or not?
What do you think?
PS. I hope this is the right forum for such post. It is more personal, although there is also overall discussion on the matter possible
Conventional war between nuclear country powers like Russia, or China, or India, is not going to happen..
reading a thread like this and reading the responses really point out how civilians are a bit outta touch when it comes to warfare, nothing personal..
If say Russia, and India went to war, whoever was losing would be using nukes as a last ditch effort to win, or scorch the Earth, conventional war is
obsolete to be honest, the next big war between superpowers will effect the whole world, That is why if and when Koreans start killing each other and
the USA gets caught up in it in the DMZ, its going to be a mess, and quite frankly the whole world will become unstable, Iran, Israel, middle east
itself, Russia, getting pissed, China, getting pissed etc..
they will also be using them strategically against military forces first I would presume..
All fingers point to Korea, to initiate the first nuclear exchange..
Not to mention the world economy would be broken, if war started in ASIA, which would create one hell of a strain on stability throughout the world,
gas prices rise, food prices rise, once economy brakes, yea fighting occurs for have and have not...
This is not rocket science, either, the answer is just no, man, it will not stay outta Europe...
