Meaning WW3 and potential nuclear conflict

We’d have to escalate based on China blockaded a territory they’ve claimed as their own for almost a century now. I’m not so sure that goes as well as you think. If someone is crazy enough to blockade Taiwan, they’re crazy enough to let ICBMs and nukes fly or hit our infrastructure.

It’s not good that russia and China aren’t afraid of us bud. As far as bankruptcy or looming economic crisis, that only makes China more dangerous. Conflict is a good way to redirect domestic anger outwardly

If it where up to me I would totally disengage from the global stage. Let China and Russia eat the bruises and just focus entirely on domestic issues not whether gay kids have rights in Yemen.

Don't think we're supposed to do blockades and would probably sail straight on through if they ignored the sea lane right of way thing. Crush their ship like a soda can, USS Admiral Nimitz. [You must be logged in to view images. Log in or Register.]

Maybe an airlift would be a bigger flex though.

Yeahh buttt then it was a good time to bomb back we did some prep during all that. Ppl saw the writing on the wall...

Who knows if we had only sent 20,000 troops or put bases literally offshore of Japan we would have just thrown away assets. The war could have gone bad. We could have lost popular support as the aggressors. Etc.

U need to balance offense and defense.

Nowadays ppl r just being idiots.

Where is even civil corps teaching ppl basic on the weekends on a volunteer basis...

Not even that. We are way too big of a cringe.

What I wanted, want is not what is likely to happen. Or would have worked. Do I want America to be badass enough to actually do anything practical? Sure would be lovely. Ain't going to happen tho. It's time to pack our bags and go home.

You think it’s easier to crush Chinese ships 50 miles from China than for them to hit us thousands of miles from our bases? Like they wouldn’t just send 1,000 missiles our bases in Japan and Guam?

The Russians are IQ 80 morons who think track suits are cool. The Chinese are 110 IQ and the factory of the world. Gonna take a lot of thought about this fight because they’ve been planning

Nah they'll puss out. Chinese operate on the principles of Legalism, so if they ignored the rules(of the sea in this case) and got got, they would back down.

Don't fire, just keep driving the boat. Announce your intentions.
