fredbox: Spending my childhood about 3 miles from a primary target, I definitely miss the adrenaline dump that came with any random set of headlights lighting up my bedroom window.


Duck and cover! and you'll be just fine.

We haven't had a missile gap since I was a child.  It's very exciting.

BolloxReader:This could indeed become a different version of NATO. South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Singapore, Myanmar, India, Vietnam, Cambodia, the US, New Zealand, Papau New Guinea, and those are the ones that favor us more than they favor China.

I have good wifi, so my fap-in-place plan is secure.  If attacked, I want to be one of the people who "died doing what he loved".

Hope you downloaded all your furrie porn because there will be no internet.

China might want to slow down on their rhetoric of "watch yourself" a bit. We fully expect to have an adult in charge shorty. We all know Diaper Donny is a joke, but don't count on laughterOL too much longer... he's really screwed the pooch with his whole botched C-19 management, and that's not going to be forgotten in 6 months.
Hell, it will still be here in 6 months...

powhound: We lost the trade war, ain't no way no how anybody "wins" a land war in Asia, and what's left? Nuking the place?

I don't agree with the Chinese aggression against Taiwan and the local islands outside of their territorial waters. That's how Japan started their expansion. It needs to be curbed but at the table, not using a launch button. In other words we will need to wait until we have adults in the big house.


There's a very real chance that we don't get adults in the big house, because America is not a country of adults. Neither is China.

dogsafark: The Googles Do Nothing: If we are realistic we need to prepare for a military challenge from China.

TRUTH...shiatty, but TRUTH. We opened the world's sealanes to global commerce and have kept them open since 44 and the Bretton Woods conference. China used that.But now they want to dominate it all to another purpose. Sensible people don't have much faith in the benevolence of totalitarian regimes.


LOL.
Like Facebook, Google, and Amazon are democracies?
Bow down to your new overlords you plebe. Corporate America is the new fiefdom

Enjoy the feudalism

toetag: xanadian: Davis-Monthan was less than a mile from where I lived

I had fun growing up.  Most of my time was spent int the "nuclear triangle" (DC - Richmond - Virginia Beach). I was 5-10 minutes from 3-4 bases, just over in Norfolk, many more Naval stations.

Then we moved to Germany. 1000's of Russian tanks ready to crash the borders.

/not sure if "nuclear triangle" is/was a thing. it's just what we called it.


The great thing about the County is just how damn f*cking close we are to Moscow.

How does one prepare for being attacked by a force that has up out numbered 10 to one?


Lots of big bombs that can be delivered via missiles and guarantee destruction and hope the Chinese don't have a death wish.  Seeing as they don't believe in an afterlife with 76 virgins they might not.
