Where the hell is "Tiawan"?

Maybe they could beat China. I've never heard of them.
 
2007-04-24 09:19:27 AM  
In a war of sock puppets maybe.

Is that a really obtuse joke? I go to an article about Kucinich trying to impeach tricky dick.

If it was, I applaud the submitter!

Bravo!

It's off the coast of Chani.

Dear Taiwan,

Don't taunt the dynamite monkey.

Tiawan? I don't think so. I believe that submitter was referring to Tiamat.

Let's just go ahead and have WWIII, shall we?

It's time.
 
2007-04-24 12:13:07 PM  
I think they could.

Nobody thought Israel could stave off invasion from every neighbor, but they've done it repeatedly.

It's like backing a wild animal into a corner.

I wish I were in Tiawan-a eating barbecued iguana...

Tiamat vs Hurricane Ditka?



Ditka!

I was not involved.

Never been to Taiwan. Japan, yes.

Hi dozo!! Do itashimasta
 
2007-04-24 12:14:26 PM  
Maybe submitter was referring to Tijuana? A few atomic burritos would have the Chinese on the runs.

Tiawan must like picking on sleeping bears.

That headline made me laugh out loud. Alcohol? Genious!

anyone else getting a link to a page involving impeaching Cheney?

I believe the submitter misspelled "Taiwan."

Dear Taiwan,

We know we said we'd have your back and all that...but we're having our own "little" issues right now. So, if you could keep quiet just a little, we'd really appreciate. *^^*~

Thanks!

/Read article and noticed the "no role for the United States"...but c'mon, China has like 1 quadrillion people or something....
 
2007-04-24 12:17:22 PM  
Wouldn't China wind up being the aggressor? I think that'd make it more like "Taiwan didn't totally get annihilated" than "we beat China".

It's time for a rousing game of Let's Piss China Off And Make Everyone Take Sides. Enough of this piddly Iraq stuff, time for a REAL war.

/World seems to need some Zanax or something.

I dunno. China's got a lot of people, but those little countries, they fight till they're burger.

Not only that, look at the end of the link.

Beer Muscles for Taiwan. China can conquer them by simply walking over top of their land and stopping. Yeah, there are that many of them.

Who says Fox isn't funny?
 
2007-04-24 12:24:05 PM  
If China attacked today Taiwan would be screwed without international intervention, by 2012 I don't think the international community could respond within the two hours it would take them to take Taipei and declare reunification.

Of course, you need to give the wild animal a highly trained and modern air force too.

The actual headline!

No doubt alcohol was involved in creating the link...

The China/Taiwan story is an actual story hitting the wire. I'll report this as a broken link.

Here's a few articles on the subject:

Fox News article.

Some others links gathered by Google news.

And nukes. Don't forget the nukes.

Yeah, we're all hankering for a good, old-fashioned world war. But don't you dare start that in Asia, you hear me? Us Europeans have earned our right to start major world conflicts.

Took us millenia of raping each other's women and stealing their cattle. We've got practice in hating our neighbors, baby. We've got that raw, bitter hatred for the other guy down the street. We've got the juice, uh-huh.

Let's get it on!

/kidding, sheesh
 
2007-04-24 12:34:18 PM  
Israel and Taiwan both have modern well trained armed forces.

but...

Most of the Middle East still fight with old Soviet Migs and AK-47s

China has nukes and is developing military technology comparable to America's. They also outnumber Taiwan 300,000,000 to 5,000,000.

I'd put my money on China.

I want some of what they are smoking!! I have been to Taiwan & the are not capable of beating the Duchy of Grand Fenwick. If you are not familiar with the Duchy of Grand Fenwick - Google it!!
