    You utter imbecile, that makes no difference at all. You truly live in a fantasy land, you utter imbecile. Just like with every post you make, you are utterly clueless.

    Just to remind you, senile Joe was already walked back from his ridiculous comment by his minders immediately after coming out with that laughable tripe.
    This thread is already redundant. I suppose it has morphed to storm in a teacup Nancy and her meaningless unofficial visit. I mean really- is the USA honestly so pathetic these days?

    I suspect there maybe a number, of unconvinced citizens in the 16% countries?

    Allegedly, less than 25% of NaGastan citizens support the current government. Many other 16% countries also have growing dissent with their government's actions.

    Of course this is utter toosh. Military budgets matter very much.

    What is your point, dipshit?

    China has no experience in combined arms operations, no experience waging war on a large scale, no experience coordinating logistics on a global scale, on and on and on. The last war the Chinese fought was in 1979, and they got their shit packed in by the Vietnamese and were forced to retreat back into their own country.

    As usual, you have not a fucking clue what you are talking about.

    More Australians fear China will attack Australia than Taiwanese believe China will attack Taiwan, the results of a think tank survey published today has revealed.

    The results, described as "astounding", are partly due to the "drums of war" rhetoric repeated by some political figures, analysts say.

    The Australia Institute polled two groups of 1000 people, one each in Australia and Taiwan, during this month's tensions in the Taiwan Strait after US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi visited the self-governing island.

    Almost one in 10 Australians believed an invasion will come "soon", compared with one in 20 Taiwanese.

    5%

    Meanwhile,........




    Indiana Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) arrived in Taiwan on Sunday, leading the latest U.S. delegation to the self-governing island amid heightened tensions with China following Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s (D-Calif.) visit earlier this month.

    Holcomb’s office said the delegation, which includes state and Purdue University officials, would meet with Taiwanese officials during a two-day trip to strengthen economic and academic ties. The group will then travel to Seoul, South Korea for two days.

    “I couldn’t be more energized to spend this week building new relationships, reinforcing long time ones and strengthening key sector partnerships with Taiwan and South Korea,” Holcomb said in a statement.

    And it continues...........





    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    China does not need "experience coordinating muh logistics on a global scale" to fight a war on its literal front doorstep.

    The Vietnam/China war is always trotted out as some major humiliation for China. And this little part is always left out. In November 1978, Moscow signed a mutual defense treaty with Hanoi. So Vietnam was getting arms and training and everything the USSR had to offer, to fight China.


    China’s military budget is usually thought to be about 40% of that of the US. In reality it's about 75%, says University of Western Australia's Peter Robertson. And that 75% is concentrated in one spot. Mainland China.

    Commentary: China’s military might is much closer to the US than you probably think - CNA

    Ridiculous debate anyway. A country that was unable to subdue Iraq or Afghanistan knows full well it cannot successfully defend Taiwan in a military sense, and most certainly has not committed to that. Let them sort it out between themselves.

    How do you come to that conclusion? Seeing as you're comparing apples to oranges you come out looking the fool the again with your knee-jerk anti-Us nd pro-China garbage.

    Do you believe proximity and military budgets are irrelevant too ?

    Both PRC & ROC are not stupid enough to believe that war is the answer. Yanks best advised to stay out of it.

    Well, Russia has a defence budget and a reputation for unbridled militarism.

    They recently declared war on a near neighbour without justification. That incursion is going really well isn’t it?

    Your rather grandiose and hormone driven ideas don’t carry much weight in the real world. It’s quite a problem for teenagers these days.

    You as usual have no idea what you are talking about. China is not going to invade Taiwan.

    What went wrong with your prediction that the war in Ukraine would never happen?

    Ok. We have your prediction loud and clear.

    I can't see how war will be avoided. Whether that is a blockade like the US did on Cuba in 1962. Or a Crimea scenario. Ukraine was Russia's paramount red line. Taiwan is China's paramount red line. Pretty simple really.

    I agree. But all it takes is a fanatical party or leader to be in power. The current party is slowly choosing war.

    In 2015, the former president (from the sane party) of Taiwan and Xi Jinping met in Singapore. Relations were good.

    Yet China bellows like a madman every single day that it will invade Taiwan. I have yet to hear Taiwan threaten to invade China. Do try to keep facts . . . factual.

    Like Russia out of Ukraine and Chin aout of Taiwan. Well done.

    Yes you are ‘pretty simple’. Most potential confrontations are resolved by diplomacy. You have all the depth of a burst flip flop.

    Well, your opinion is not worth much, since you are the biggest moron on the forum, and generally you have no idea what you are talking about.
