I dont know IMO we have seen the last large scale war: WW2......plus Europe my not be one single happy EU yet but the do close ranks when it comes to world politics. So I believe no more wars in western or central europe........maybe something in southeastern europe like in the 90's but nothing I believe LARGE scale or anything just localized conflict........

Maybe not in our life times, but if the EU becomes one super-state in the distant future, then history has shown that all artificial unions of countries end up in war in the end...Yugoslavia, Soviet Union, US, Indo-Pakistan Wars, the list goes on.

I dont know about that. IMO political ties are not what they once were, plus no-one wants to see 40 plus million people die again......

aw that old china vs china game again...The guy that wrote "the flight of the old dog" (Dale Bond) has been preaching this very scenario of china involved engagments for his last three books or so. Even clancy took a swing at the chineese invasion of russia to get the gold and goodies of siberia.

Its quite sobering really. Right now, america is very pressed to engage in conflicts in two geographically seperated places. The middle east and kosovo are exceptions, because they really are within the realm of one quater of the world, and acessible by air from germany or kuwait, take your pick.


Now if china felt really froggy, they would do whats predicted and go and take the bone while the dogs busy in another part of the yard. Only, i believe they are really not as prepared to go to the stops just right yet. One they just had a miserable harvest. Two, aside from a few natural castastrophes, the fuel situation aint good neither. We might have a few years respite from china just yet.

Maybee.

Topic: explaining myself


china considers tiawan part of itself..... but the new taiwanese president wants it to be known that they are independent... china doesnt like this...... they have begun to move missles to the southern portion of china...... able to hit taiwan....... with the US in iraq we cannnot help our ally taiwan..... so the chinese may strike if the new president gets to patriotic....... some even believe that the shot that hit the president while he was running for president was an assasination attempt...... but this is just my view

to be honest i dont think that they would dare - the trade embardgos etc that would result from all the countries not wanting to trade wih china would cripple it. especially oil and food embargos, and I believe that some organisation (UN poss.?) would deploy a rapid reaction force there anyway. There would be no point really for them except to boost their national pride (re:argentinians falklands war).

I don't think the UN would be able to deter China if China decided that taking Taiwan would be in her best interest. Besides China would veto any sanctions or UN plans to move against it, for whatever that would be worth. Now if you're referring to a typical UN operation, which means that it is mostly manned and funded by the U.S.A. then I may tend to agree that such action may be deemed not in China's best interest. Sanctions really aren't very effective in stopping aggression. For now, I think China is biding her time when it comes to Taiwan. The fact of the matter is that China has been massing forces, firing artillery. aiming missiles etc. in the direction of Taiwan for many years now. It's really nothing new at all. Watch the news every time there's a Taiwanese election coming up.
