China has been a paper tiger and currency manipulator for years and I fully expect it to crumple within our lifetime. In a hypothetical war, the Chinese navy would be gradually wiped out, though their Air Force and Army would stlll be a major threat. Regardless of how China's economy goes, they wil...

China's aggression at mininum will lead to a major arms race in the region, and nuclear proliferation of China's neighbors. Within this or next decade we can expect nuclear weapons permanently stationed by the US in Taiwan or even maybe South Korea, as soon conventional weapons won't be able to be a...

I'm reading a book on how WWI started, and it's a comedy of errors. No country's blameless. It'd be interesting to do a thread on that. I'd recommend getting your hands on some of the war victory/war romanticism fiction at the time, as all the sides had a version of the story where their nation con...

As a Canadian, I am looking forward to the day that we at the very least get a bipolar world again. While Canada will probably remain under America's thumb until the day America collapses, the erosion of American influence around the world would be a huge positive for humanity , especially given Am...

It's almost as though recognised borders rely (rightly or wrongly) on diplomacy and consensus rather than 'hey there's some guys with guns over there so let's re-draw the map.' For example parts of Kurdistan are (or were) independent and the mainstream media readily accepts this fact, and yet they ...

They all are fed the same line, and follow through on it.
