You sound angry now.
Tell me how I'm a jingoist btw.
I'm not here beating the war drum for America. I'm pointing out the obvious fact that adversaries allying against us may not be as friendly with each
other as it appears.
Marriages of convenience are a thing.
I don't know what "and so on" refers to, but it has nothing to do with hubris about the most destructive power mankind has wrought.
But please do go on being presumptuous.
"How long are you planning to hang about for?
Iran and China are both about 3,500 years old. The way things are looking now the US would be lucky to see its 300th anniversary."
What relevance does any of that have to my statement. A lot can happen in a short period of time. Considering this is Iran and China, I wouldn't be
surprised to see someone backstabbed here.
However long they have existed is irrelevant as is the U.S.' tenure.
My snark at the decision of Iran isn't personal, it's business. I harbor no ill will towards the people of Iran nor China. Just their governments.
And in this context, it does seem that no matter what, China will have the upper hand on Iran should things go sour. Or is that not a fact?
I think it's more your obvious Anti -American stance than anything I said that tripped your trigger.
Bet you won't admit it though.
Nice try, but maybe you should get lost.
This is my thread.
