    Anybody Here Worried about Impending (w/in 2 years) WAR with China?: Effects on You?

    Yes. Knowing something about how Xi thinks, I am definitely a bit worried about war with China.

    I have been trying to gauge how this will affect life in Thailand.

    For example: Will it even be possible for a Farang to live in Thailand if war with China hits the fan?

    Of course, life in Taiwan would deteriorate to a point of intolerability.
    Taiwanese have not an inkling of the very real impacts to their lives; not unless they are used to living as cavemen of millennia gone by.

    Concerning moving to Japan when war seems imminent: I think I would definitely consider moving to Japan, just because that is the place I would like to kiss my ass goodbye. Japan is truly a beautiful country, out in the countryside.

    I feel that Japan is an even more safe and secure environment than Thailand, although of course, Thailand always feels safe to me.

    But I just like the idea of being in Japan when things become the worst the world has ever seen.

    But what would life be like in Thailand when war happens?

    Certainly, Thailand is fully able to feed itself on jasmine rice, and other locally produced food.

    What are the odds of war between China, Taiwan, the Australians, and the USA?

    I put the odds at over 95 percent within the next five years. And maybe the odds are 70 percent within the next two years.

    I cannot say that I welcome war, exactly. However, I do not like the way this world is developing anyway...

    And I think there might be some advantage to wiping the slate clean, and having a fresh start.

    No doubt, Elon Musk will not yet be on Mars within the next five years, and so Musk will need to share the troubles and turmoil along with the rest of us, when war rears its ugly head.

    I don't know how much time you spend thinking about this eventuality.
    Maybe it is best to just not dwell upon such matters, too much, before it happens.

    Surely, if war happens, ThaiVisa forum will REALLY go down for the final count.
    At least, there is a silver lining, maybe...

    No point over thinking things out of your control. Shit happens, deal with as it crops up. That's life

    It is more obvious that there will be war than Ukraine was in the years before. And Ukraine is at least a country.

    And it will ruin Asia for all of us.

    Then you should stop posting about it because you just lost any little credibility on matters like this that you ever had.

    The state of war already exists. The US already crossed the red line and it continues. It's just a matter of how long China will continue to allow it.

    China can not afford a war in any way, and that probability is so low as to not worry about. There are more likely things, even internal to Thailand, that might affect you, but, as others have said, many things can happen so just enjoy life while you can.

    China is the biggest external creditor in the world. So that theory doesn't hold water.

    The irony of this statement is mind-blowing coming from the TD idiot of the year award winner. NO ONE is more clueless than you are, you dimwit. China's economy is on the brink of collapse and there are major internal problems at play. You, as usual, are out of your depth, do everyone a favor and go post about how clean the beaches of Pattaya are. Stay away from Geo-politics, you just make an ass out of yourself, you clueless fuck.

    Chinkland is the factory floor for the world, a commie farm for the bastards whose contribution to the world is cheap shit and fucking plagues.
    China would be back in the stone stage in no time if they fucked with Uncle Sam.
    The Chinks are going to implode anyway under their fucked up bogus capitalist system that impoverishes their people who are no more than ants.
    Still, a war with the US will never happen, the mutually assured economic destruction likely to arise from it would be as effective as a nuclear conflict.
    Looking on the bright side, the baht would fall.
    Anyone who actually thinks a war will pass is a fucking idiot.
    Chinks buy debt from the US with their revenue, cutting your balls off to spite your enemy is not a strategy that works.

    "Here ya go. More liquid refreshment to add to the amount you have already gulped down served by the media."

    You mean like this serving from the media?

    America Is a Heartbeat Away From a War It Could Lose

    " The United States is a heartbeat away from a world war that it could lose. "

    Xi seems quite serious about Taiwan, just as he was about HK.
    Or, do you think Xi is just engaging in making idle threats?

    Maybe it's hard to say.

    Good thread. I think bsnub nailed it. The Chinese economy is in deep deep shxt. Dictator Winnie the Pooh has to sort that before attacking Taiwan as his ass is currently on the line.

    I made the Ukr war thread in 2021 when Ukr pulled out of Minsk 2. It was obvious that there was going to be a real war and yet you and everyone else were blind sided by it.

    You'll be blind sided by this one too.

    Looks like we've got another sabang on our hands.

    He was always convinced the USA was going to invade Iran.
